What a great place, seven of us arrived wet from walking and nothing is too much trouble for the owner, his wife and daughter. We had tea and shortbread served when we arrived, then shown to our very comfortable and spacious rooms. Evening meal was excellent and very well presented, Tried several whiskeys in the bar that evening and enjoyed... More

What a lovely traditional family run hotel, nothing is to much trouble, we were offered and served tea and coffee, in the very comfortable lounge as soon as we arrived. We were then shown to our very spacious and comfortable rooms. The food at dinner, and at breakfast was excellent, beautifully presented and served. We can thoroughly recommend The Caledonian...

Hotel is very cute and warm. People, rooms are lovely. Great view and a nice spot for people who want to see Loch Ness and Fort Augustus. Small but a scenic town. They rescheduled the breakfast from 8.30 to 8.00 for us to catch the bus without asking.

I really liked this hotel from checking in to checking out. There are a couple of old school practises you need to prepare for – like choosing what you want to eat and placing your order by a set time. WIFI limited so you have to come to the lounge to use it. Please do not let these put you... More

We went on a bit of a road trip and landed in Fort Augustus. So lucky to have happened upon this hotel. We were shown the room before we committed to taking it, reception were lovely and made us feel really welcome. The room was huge (we took the only remaining room which was 2 singles) lovely to have blankets... More

This small family run hotel was a welcoming refuge for a couple of rain soaked days in Fort Augustus. Although we had the smallest room (as we booked late) this was a superb break. The locks were a short walk away, especially if you took the shortcut through the Lovat Hotel. The breakfast should not be missed. Every item on... More

We stayed at Caledonian Hotel over a year ago for a short break, we stayed here as it was central in the Highlands to lots of locations that we wanted to visit. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable, the staff were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble and always greeted everyone with a smile no matter what time of... More

The hotel is very close to the canal area and we easily walked there a few times. The hotel has good parking. We had rooms 6 & 7. The rooms were mid-size and extremely clean and modern. One of the nicest bathrooms we had on our trip. The hotel is basic, but very warm and comfortable. We did not eat... More
