We only stayed one night, but it was a wonderful stay. We did not have reservations and just stopped in to see if they had a room available. We were very lucky indeed! Lovely room and a wonderful breakfast. We also had a fabulous dinner at the restaurant the night we were there. If I ever get back to Scotland,... More

We did not stay at the hotel but dropped in on a recommendation from our B&B to eat and drink. Chris the owner was an excellent host, very frieldly and willing to teach an American scotch novice the intracacies of their whiskey. A great place, friendly and well priced.

The location was great, with lots of options for dinner in addition to dining in the hotel. Breakfasts were delicious, with choices, not just the standard cooked Scottish breakfast, which was a good change. The location was also good for... More

This is a small hotel run by an extremly friendly family. The hotel is nicely located in the compact village centre of Fort Augustus. The old building has its own charm, and the premises were tidy and clean. The breakfast was fantastic. We did not have dinner, nor did we use the services of the small bar which seemed to... More

We stopped here for a night on our way past on the Great Glen Way. It was in a good location in the village. Very comfortable and bright rooms and breakfast was very good. Dinner in the hotel is an option. Lovely bar.

Excellent hotel quiet and unpretentious , beautifully clean and the family owners gave us a silver service tea tray upon arrival We will most definately return for a week next year and use the hotel as our base for walking Fort Augustus so much nicer than fort William

This is a family run hotel. Johanna and her husband presently manage the property. We found them to be very warm and friendly. The room was nice (room # 4). The en-suite bathroom is worth mentioning. Wonderful view from the bedroom window. The hotel is a short walk away from the village and the loch. enjoyed the breakfast as well.... More

Just back from a bike trip and stayed again at the Caledonian. Hotel was marvellous again with great service and food. I had a breakdown on the bike and when Chris heard he arranged for the local garage to open up at 8.30pm on the Saturday night to start the repair, bike needed a part and Chris once again got...
