Recently enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Learney hotel. Booked a 65th wedding anniversary lunch for 4 generations and everyone was very happy with their meal. The sticky toffee pudding and the cheesecake were both superb. We were given a room to ourselves complete with a box of toys for the children. Service was excellent and the staff helpful and...

This is the nearest eatery for us when we stay in the Highlands, and we eat there once or twice on each visit. One of the bars is set up to dine in, and there is a varied menu choice usually with a specials board. Last night we had starters, two shared an onion bhajee salad that did not go... More

Had a meal on Friday night and was not impressed. Two had fish and chips the portion of the fish was very small and was over cooked. The steak pie had about 3 bits of meat in it. The fourth person in our party enjoyed his meal. The best part of the meal was the real chips. One of our... More

I really enjoyed my stay, friendly staff and characterful surroundings! Sideboard in the hall at the door and shagpile carpet upstairs. New bathrooms though, and a quiet night's sleep even though the bed was a wee bitty hard.

Great for a Weekend break away from it all, a beautiful old Granite Hotel with excellent staff, service food and entertainment, as we found out on the Saturday Evening. Friendly locals and quite a few Characters. Would definitely stay again

Was here for lunch, opted for the fish and chips. Served on what seemed a small plate for the portion meaning that the fish was served on top of the chips. This of course meant that the fat from the fish drained onto the chips. Had the plates been warmed this might not have been such an issue. The peas... More

We decided to have a night out with a couple of friends and didn't want to go too far. We made a booking at the Learney, having not been for some time. It has a busy lounge and is a very comfortable place to eat, chat and relax. There were a good selection of specials on the board, but two... More

When on business in thiscarea I generally stay in a different hotel but on this occasion it was fully booke up. It took me an hour and a half the previous evening to find an alternative and eventually stumbled on the Learney. It turned out to be a good find because the it ticked all the boxes for a relaxing...
