Hotel is in an ideal spot just outside of Fort Augustus overlooking the Loch. We stayed one night as part of a side trip to Loch Ness. The staff were very accommodating on our arrival and with ten of us, including five children ten and under, were very helpful with getting a meal in the lounge. Food was good. The... More

Excellent from check in to room quality to staff (all) to dinner (food to die for) and caring attitude, this was ideal for our onward trip to Skye!!! The scenery from the comfy bedroom was fantasic. We would certainly recommend the hotel--- and "we will be back"

We visited on 29/7/15. On first arrival this hotel looks lovely from outside and in a very good location for the attractions we wished to visit. The decor of the communal rooms are very nice. The hostess was really welcoming and made us feel at ease straight away. All of the staff we came across were v.helpful. Especially one young... More

There is not much choice in Fort Augustus. The Inch Hotel is average as hotels go. The best part about it is the manageress, Jane,who was a welcoming hostess. The room we had was on the second floor and had an outlook to the front garden and the road. There are not many rooms with a better view. The room... More

Booked two rooms but one had a terrible mildew smell and we didn't want to stay in the room. Hotel was full and no extra rooms available. Three of us slept in one room, one on the sofa bed which was very uncomfortable. Hotel did offer to find us another room at some other place but it was late. Had... More

Food was lovely - very impressed our langoustines - immense. Breakfast was nice. Room was very nice. However - this is a lodge - not a hotel. Views were nice - but clearer instructions on how to walk into FA a good idea (busy road). I did find the overnight stay a bit pricey £120 b&b. Was booked by a... More

While on a whole it was a nice looking hotel the pictures of highland cows grazing in the fields is obviously an old picture and these fields are all overgrown, perhaps this was pointing to what was to come. Our room was overlooking a nice roof and storeroom and rather dated and the mattress was as hard as a board.... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at The Inch. It seems you were a little underwhelmed. The Highland Cows are not owned by the hotel but are periodically rotated around the surrounding pastures and woodland in front of the hotel. Unfortunately we have no control over when they will be available to welcome our... More

Recently remodeled rooms were neat and clean. Staff was quite friendly and helpful. I would happily stay there again. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choices from simple to way too much. :-) Being a converted hunting lodge, the decor was elegantly warm and inviting. I spent a quite pleasant hour reading in front of the fireplace and felt like... More

This old lodge is in a superb location, looks terrific and should be a 100% certainly for five stars. However, the room we had was very much in need of a makeover. It was obviously ageing badly and felt old and musty. Apart from that, the rest of the stay was close to perfect. The food was excellent. The staff... More
