Situated right against Loch Ness, there is not only a boat tour's dock just a few minutes' ride from the hotel, but a museum / visitor center in the adjacent building that guides guests through a thorough history of Loch Ness and the legend of "Nessie." The Drumnadrochit Hotel was very clean, even if it was a somewhat aged building... More

This hotel was perfect for our family of 4, with two 10 year olds. It's in a complex with shops, and the monster exhibition. We booked a boat tour with the desk, as well. There is not really a clear view of the loch, but the location was still good. The restaurant had a nice breakfast. There was a fun,... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking time to write us a review. I am very pleased you were happy with our family lodges situated behind the hotel. As you have said they are very quiet with plenty of parking and on the odd occasion you can even spot some very rare red squirrels! Regards Angela Gillies Assistant Manager More

Drumnadrochit Hotel sits very close to the Loch Ness (Scottish Loch = Lake), Always kept saying Lake loch ness. It is a small hotel around 5 - 8 miles from Invernes City Center. The rooms are built like a wooden cabin, even though they are housed in Brick Building. The road around the hotel is very quite ,considering the fact... More

Another hotel on the Great Glen Way. The room was very comfortable, but it seemed to get very hot for reasons I couldn't fathom. One big annoyance was that the WiFi was only available in public areas, which were shut after 9pm. The only place to pick it up was sat outisde the hotel!
