The hotel is beautiful, traditional and we received a very warm welcome from the lovely staff on our arrival and great service throughout our stay. The hotel is in a great location, with beautiful...

We stayed at the Inch as a stopover on route to Skye. The building itself is a very impressive traditional Scottish hunting lodge which has been tastefully decorated in keeping with its age. The staff were very friendly, attentive and couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable. We had dinner in the resteraunt, the food and wine were first... More

We have stayed there during our vacation in Scotland. This hotel is located in a very quiet area near Fort Augustus. A few minutes away from the famous Loch Ness. The staff at the reception was very welcoming and nice. This former hunting lodge offers every basic services including a restaurant and a very cozy lounge where you can sit... More

Pretty location on a hill overlooking Loch Ness. It was a very tradtional looking B&B had a nice feel as we entered. The service was friendly and the meal in the restaurant for dinner was very nice with a lovely view out the window. There were no children's meals but they did adjust the meal to suit what our kids... More

We spent 4 nights at the Inch, from 20th to 24th October for our anniversary, and stayed in Loch Lochy. From the moment we arrived we were made so welcome by all the wonderful friendly staff. The hotel has a warm cosy feel, perfect for the cold Autumn weather. The food is excellent, and the waiting staff couldn't do enough... More

This was the classic Scottish hunting lodge\hotel atmosphere. Great lounge area, tartan prints throughout. Wonderful breakfast. The dinner is to die for. I wish we could have stayed a week instead of one night. Very cozy room with great view if the loch. The oops don't have numbers, they are named after a loch.

We just spent two nights at The Inch, and couldn't have been happier with it as a base for exploring the Highlands. There was a conference booked there the weekend that we stayed, and the management went above and beyond to make sure that our experience there was still top-notch. We were treated to private dinners in the siting room... More

Stayed here with my wife, son and his fiancé for one night. In general, the hotel has old fashion appeal but needs some renovation and a lick of paint. Location is ideal and offers great views on to Loch Ness and surrounding area. Rooms were adequate for our one night stay but toilet & shower was on the cramped side.... More
