My boyfriend and I stayed here for a couple of nights as we felt it would be a good base for kayaking, fishing, walking etc which it most certainly was. The hotel was very homely and full of character. Our room over looked the loch which was breath taking. What impressed us most of all was the friendly, cheerful, and... More

We had decided to visit friends nearby and this was the hotel we were booked. From the moment you arrive you are greeted by gracious front of house staff that make you feel so welcome. The hotel has just been renovated and it has been done with immaculate taste. The attention to detail, the colors, the furniture all add to... More

As we came in we were warned by the manager that this not a hotel but our own living room. WOW what a fantastic location and the family room was a fantastic experience. Waking up and seeing the seals swimming in front of your window is something we will never forget. On top of that the lodge has one of... More

We booked this hotel last minute on our week travelling around Scotland, it was absolutely perfect. Beautifully renovated and re-opened 3 weeks previously. Staff were so helpful and friendly and we relaxed as soon as we walked in the door. A lovely homely feel that makes you not want to leave.

We were staying with the owner of a nearby property in Badachro, who had eaten recently at the restaurant with his family and he highly recommended it. My wife and I decided to give it a go, not having considered eating at the hotel, believing it to be a hunting or fishing lodge for the wealthier kind of traveller. We... More

Added Value: the supportiveness of the host! we came in just when storm Bertha hit Higlands flooding the road to the Lodge. Upon arrival date I called him concerned and he quickly managed to sent us a high-clearance car to pick us up and bring us to the Hotel. The following morning after many checks he managed to sent us... More

We arrived late at night and it was just good luck that we found the lodge as the sign post was very poor, but when we opened the curtains in the morning the view was to die for, a couple of seals playing in the loch just in front of the lawn, a wonderful find and Gino and Wendy were... More

What a great find. We found this hotel after having a poor experience in another hotel. Ok, it's not swanky it's not modern it's not posh. But one thing you can't say is it doesn't have character and the staff are really nice. The rooms are old fashioned but it didn't matter the staff were nice the food was ok... More

This is an older property with high ceilings, big rooms (well ours was), a great view across the inlet from Loch Gairloch but a bit faded and understaffed. Take the last point, at breakfast and evening meals (all good) the front of shop was dealing with all the diners (well), but he was also looking after people checking in and... More
