The owner is so very nice. We accidentally left our macbook charger behind us and he mailed it to us. We are extremely grateful as we are from Canada and those chargers are expensive. Thanks so much kind sir. Not to mention breakfast is DELICIOUS and the staff are very friendly. Wish we could of stayed longer :)

There is really nothing to say about this hotel which hasn't been said by previous reviewers. We were made to feel very welcome, the hotel is spotlessly clean and the food was good quality and plentiful. Chris obbiously enjoys what he does and goes out of his way to make sure guests enjoy their stay. I would highlyrecommend and will... More

1st time at the Caledonian Hotel Fort Augustus. But will stay again . Old homely hotel. Owners and staff are friendly and helpful. Food is excellent places. Ideal for exploring Scotland. Some parts of the hotel may need a little updating but this only adds to the old world charm of the place . A well stocked bar with real... More

Right from the outset, we experienced a high level of service and warmth from the various staff members of this family run hotel. We arrived early as this was a shorter day of walking and were offered Tea and cake while... More

We only stayed one night but all was fine - a lovely welcome and a cup of tea in the lounge to relax after our drive. We opted to have dinner in the hotel and it was really delicious - so much better than popping to the pub. Breakfast also was freshly made with good ingredients. Our room was spotlessly... More

For a foreign tourist Caledonian Hotel is a good choice: small local details in rooms etc. differentiates it from the international brand hotels. Rooms were clean and nice. Staff was excellent: small hotels with friendly and personal service gives a customer a sense of exclusivity.

This charming hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Fort Augustus. Chris, the owner, greeted us warmly when we checked in and offered us a cup of tea. We had a beer in the bar instead, which was very well received after a long day's hike. Our room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated, with a stunning view. The... More

Great service, clean rooms, amazing atmosphere and very welcoming hospitality after a long day of hiking! I would stay here again in a hearbeat! The manager/bartender/entertainer kept up laughing for hours and recommended a great place nearby to eat.

Really lovely, small hotel. Brilliantly located in Fort Augustus, very close to all the local amenities and tourist attractions. Our room was very clean and tastefully decorated. Would highly recommend a stay at this hotel. You will be assured of a comfortable stay and home cooked breakfast to start your day.
