four of us in a two bedroom cottage overlooking the hills. It was beautiful. clean, quiet and had all the amenities - close to Inverness for golfing. excellent food and mostly good service. one waiter who was leaving to return to university made it pretty clear he was happy to be working his last day!

We stopped and took the 7.00 tour, staff is friendly, interesting spot, face it it's a rare privately owned distillery, if you are in the area, it's worth seeing.. it's a private Scotch distillery so not cheap but tasty :)

This inn has perfect landscape design ... it looks like the best places we visited in southern France, or Perigaeux regions. Unfortunatelly, the restaurant falls short of an average resto. Half the sefood menue wasn't available. Amazing, this resto couldn't secure, or keep sufficient supply of scalops, or a local fish. And, yet, local fishermen told me that scalops are... More

We stopped by mainly for the live celtic music and dinner, but although the manager was accommodating to seat us and the staff friendly, we found our $38/plate salmon to be very disappointing. The $18 fish/chips appeared to have been the better choice. The ambience is rustic, clean and pleasant. Worth a visit, but prepare yourself for pricey menu items.

Stayed for one night and was kept up by noisy guests next door. Not the fault of the distillery and we did not complain but do not think we will stay there again. We ate at the restauant which was OK. The scallops were great, the pasta (vegitarian) was terrible. Will not return for dinner but may stay overnight again.

Good food, Fun atmosphere, Nice live celtic music the night we were there. if visiting near Glenora Inn be sure and stop and experience this little oasis. 15 min drive from Inverness, well worth the time.

It was a culinary package that was well worth the money. A tour, a meal with ice wine, single malt whisky, lots of wine... And live music ... .... And a gorgeous setting and the service was amazing.... I highly recommend!!!!!

Coming on dinnertime, we ran into this old distillery, restaurant and inn. The food was well made and presented with something for everyone. There was lobster, pasta, steak and meals for the kids which were all top quality! A great little surprise which you'll enjoy.

We had some extra time getting from New Glasgow to Sydney to catch the ferry to Newfoundland so we took route 19 north from Port Hastings. After passing through Glenville we came upon the Glenora Distillery - whitewashed buildings nestled in a beautiful valley. I felt transported someplace else (Scotland perhaps?) so I immediately wanted to see it and take... More
