Visited here for dinner while staying in a nearby BnB. The hotel has a great little bar with great selection of whisky's and locally made real ales. I recommend the steak pie and a pint of Wildness beer. The staff were all friendly and the bar had a welcoming atmosphere. Ideal if you want to go somewhere that does basic... More

We were told about this place during our stay in Drumnadrochit. We must have different standards. This is a pub and it served poor quality pub food, looked worst that school dinners. [in this picture what is supposed to be Scottish lamb, with vegetables etc]. Another couple who we met the following day and had eaten here told us that... More

We stayed in this hotel during July 2015. This is an affordable priced hotel. There is free wifi available at this hotel. Service was ok. The hotel is modern. The room had ok sort of view of the surroundings. We stayed here for a night. The food was ok but not that great. Check in and check out service was... More

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
