Staff very friendly, breakfast great, nice cozy restaurant with highland charm but overall hotel very tired and needs updating. Our room was fine and that is all that describes it. New bathroom that was immaculate clean linens but something was lacking ie a female touch. It needs cozying up and the room bringing together. There is great potential here. Also... More

My husband and I were in the area to see Loch Ness and ended up at the Benleva when recommended by a local we met. We only wanted a drink to get a feel of the area. It was warm and cozy, small and inviting. We experienced great local brews and several great local whiskies. We sat at the bar... More

I stayed in the Benleva by chance. It was frigid cold and I wanted a bite to eat. From suggestion by a local, I discovered Benleva. It was a little out of the way, but inside I found a warm pub and roaring fireplace. There was even a really sweet dog who came and went to sleep by my chair.... More

We didn't stay at this hotel or eat there but simply called in for a few beers during our stay in Drumnadrochit. It is a little out of the centre of town itself but easily walkable - we walked there on the way back from a visit to Urquhart Castle. The pub itself is quite run down and in need... More

We went here for a meal on our recent trip to Drumnadrocchitt and didn't know what to expect at first as place looks a wee bit run down from the outside, but we were pleasantly surprised when we went inside. Staff were really welcoming and food was lovely and not to expensive. Overall worth a visit if your up this... More

The Benleva website has an appealing, quirky tone and I had high hopes of my first visit to Scotland since childhood in the early 1960's. However, the staff seemed a little short of pleased to see us and the accompanying photos of the view from the window room show one of the shortcomings of the hotel - there's very little... More

We had a wonderful time at the Benleva. The staff was very friendly, the food was great, and the location was supurb. We could walk to Loch Ness, to downtown Drumnadrochit, and to Urquhart castle. The owner was extremely friendly and went out of his way to make our stay more comfortable. The pub was great- the locals were there,... More

We thought that we had stumbled on a hidden gem when we went here whilst staying in Drum. We ate here for 2 nights of our week stay in the village. The first night the waitress was lovely a young girl with dark hair and the beers were great. The Bar man a non-local with a south of England accent... More

Stayed here on our travels and it was lovely. Very quiet and secluded which was nice. The room was modern and clean, free wifi available which was a bonus. They welcomed our dog and he even came to breakfast with us which was great. We ate here in the evening and the food was very nice, good service, good variety... More
