Evidently a popular place with locals in this small village, maybe because of micro brewery. Very very hard to get the attention of bar staff to show us to the restaurant bar. Food was OK and a bit pricey for pub grub. Wouldn't rush back.

If so the Benleva is for you . This hotel brews it's own beer and has a great selection . It's called the Loch Ness brewery and it exports all over the UK and Europe . The bar is rustic but very friendly .

Great beer and food was exceptional. Cosy room and adequate accommodation. Excellent base for Loch Ness. Friendly, family owned business and well worth a visit. Not sure why maid did not visit after first night but not really a problem. Good value for money and the owner owns the local award winning brewery too!

The Benleva Hotel can best be described as tired. We were a party of three people in two parts and arrived to find that we had been booked as one room for a whole week whereas we had actually booked two rooms for Wednesday to Friday. Fortunately, the hotel wasn't full (I wonder why) and we were re-accommodated in two... More

What's not to like? Home of the Loch Ness Brewery. If you are looking for a simple but comfortable Highland pub, with a proper pub attached to it i.e a friendly local's spot with good food and drink at decent prices, this is for you

We discovered Benleva hotel as we were driving weary and hungry in Loch Ness, finding everything with"no vacancy" signs. We were met by Willy, the manager, who showed us a double room with a shower. It was perfectly acceptable, but we told him we were looking for a bath-tub, since my foot was fractured and I needed to soak it.... More

Popped in here during a short break in Drumnadrochit. We were looking for a good pub and we found it :) Located a short walk from the main road the Benleva sits nestled in a grove of trees. There is the Loch Ness Brewery shop located at the back of the hotel next to the bar/restaurant. We were only here... More

We had had a tough day on the Great Glen Way, walking 15 miles in snow and hail for much of it so we were pretty tired when we arrived. Despite my having previously telephoned and requested it, there was no soya milk which limited my choices at breakfast and the member of staff on reception was efficient but didn't... More

Lovely friendly staff and a great crowd in the bar. Food was plentiful and very tasty. Loch Ness brewery has an option for everyone it would seem as it was a huge favourite in the area recommended by everyone near and far. Room was fine and good value.

The girls had fish and chips and the guys gad the haggis and mash. I was kinda scared to try it so I took a bite off of... More
