We were luck enough to snag a room here as we hadn't booked and only came upon it while driving past. On entering you are confronted with Tartan carpets,curtains and in the restaurant, tartan table cloths. The bar is quaint and the staff friendly. The open fireplace and bar very welcoming and the restaurant better than we expected with our... More

My fiance and I stayed at this hotel for two nights earlier this year. Hotel was very clean and well kept, and the service was excellent. Beautiful setting and quiet surroundings. Good value for money.

The hotel itself is pretty nice, people were nice, room was nice. The bathroom was small but very clean and the bathtub was great. The only two downsides I noticed were that the windows were only single glass and it was cold and loud because of that but no problem at all because you could turn on the heaters and... More

Not modern but really adequate for a night stay. Just on the main road to isle of skye, opposite to loch ness and near to Urquhart castle. The surrounding is very silent. Excellent staff. excellent place to stay and enjoy the outdoors.

Comfortable hotel, although the room was a little "old fashioned" (TV was CRT not flat-screen, room decor was a little dark). Food was good. The bar appeared not to have much choice of beers and spirits.

Thank you for reviewing The Loch Ness Lodge Hotel. I'm happy to hear that you had a comfortable stay. The original part of the building is over 300yrs old built in the days when windows were small to keep the heat in. The Orchard and Woodland wings areslightly brighter. I will pass on to the chef that you enjoyed the... More

Dreadful. Stayed here with my sister for one night on our road trip to Scotland. The only good things about this hotel were the location (near Loch Ness but other than that, the middle of absolute nowhere) and that it provided a bed. The room was stuffy, smelled beyond foul and everything looked like it needed a good wash. It... More

Thank you for taking the time to review The Loch Ness Lodge Hotel. I apologise for the bad experience you had but I do think that the receptionist acted appropriately by reducing your bill. Good to hear that you found Scotland 'awesome' I hope the rest of your trip gave you many memories and happy stories to take home. More

The Loch Ness Lodge is a charming old hotel in the village of Drumnadrochit near Loch Ness. We stayed for four nights in July. The main parts of the hotel - bar, reception, breakfast room etc are nicely decorated and cosy. The rooms however are a bit tired and in need of some rejuvenation. The room we stayed in was... More

Step back to the Victorian age with reams of Tartan, the historic art collection and lots of wee nooks and crannies. The staff were just great and the whole place had a relaxed feel, nothing modern and perhaps slightly dated but it has a wee glint in its eye which is just lovely.

This hotel was the perfect location for us as we wanted somewhere close to the Loch Ness Exhibition and we had a cruise booked picking up from the shop next door. Yes the room was dated but it was clean and decent sized all we needed for the night. Shower was good and we had plenty of hot water. The... More
