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

We stayed one night here as a part of a pre-booked tour. The outside of the hotel is quaint and the lounge is very comfortable, which is good, because it's the only place you can access the free wifi. We spent several hours sitting and visiting there because the rooms are dated and, for lack of a better word, tired.... More

Thank you for your Review. I'm sorry you didn't have a comfortable night with us but happy to hear that you found the lounge accommodating. The issue with the Wifi I'm afraid is due to the age of the building and it's construction. Our router is at reception but because the walls are two feet thick and built of solid... More

The Loch Ness Lodge Hotel failed to meet our expectations in every way. It was horrible. We had a two night prepaid, nonrefundable package deal through a travel agency. It was so bad that we just forfeited the money for the second night and went to Inverness. We should have taken a taxi right away, but instead we tried to... More

Thank you for taking time to review The Loch Ness Lodge Hotel. I'm sorry that you found your stay so unpleasant. I personally check the bedrooms regularly but as yet have not found any signs of damp, however I'm sure if this had been flagged up at reception we would have moved you to another room more to your liking....

I had an overnight stopover here in October 2013, and I am legitimately in two minds about what direction to take with this review. Do I let my big 'no no' experience outweigh the goods of this hotel? Or am I able to forgive it this once and rate the hotel on its overall merits.. On the one hand, the... More

Thank you for your well written review, it actually made me chuckle! It sounds like on the whole you enjoyed your stay but you weren't keen on old fashioned keys or the lack of hot water. Firstly, yes the keys are old fashioned but as you say they keep the rooms safe. The hot water, I can only apologise. As... More

We stayed in the family room while walking The a Great Glen Way, lovely warm welcome despite arriving soaked. More than adequate room and great hospitality. Breakfast cooked to order and just what we needed.

Pulled up in the carpark - looked great. Checked in and headed to the room - impressive heritage building decorated tastefully. Went for a drink in the Bar/Lounge - very cosy and nice. That's where it ended. A busload of under 35's on tour managed to set off the fire alarm by running hot showers with the bathroom door open... More

Check in was friendly but slow and the room smelled "dusty". OK, it's 700 years old, but it shouldn't smell like the last occupant was still in there! The bathroom was small and basin was stained. While dinner and breakfast were OK, the wait was unnecessarily long since there were not a million people dining at the time. It's a... More
