The Inch hotel has been in Fort Augustus for over 150 years, formerly a hunting lodge. It was located slightly outside the village but within walking distance, overlooking the Loch Ness. We as a family stayed there for a night coming from Isle of Skye and heading to Edinburgh. It is very charming and well kept condition. Breakfast was great... More

A very comfortable hotel with beautiful views from the front overlooking Loch Ness. A 5 minute walk from the centre of Fort Augustus, the Hotel commands an elevated and clear view of the Loch and has a stately home look and feel. The service was excellent overall, we were actually assisted in with our case as soon as we arrived... More

Don't have any major negatives. The hotel is OK and has been well described by many reviewers, however we do feel strongly that the price we paid - £120 - was way too much for this standard of hotel. The room was very clean etc but there was no chair, no dressing table and the hotel wanted an extra £30... More

This hotel offers exactly what you expect in the Scottish Highlands. In the quiet surroundings of Fort Augustus and Loch Ness you could be a world away. It was lovely to sit with a glass of red wine in the lounge's bay window and take in the loch views. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. A great place to escape... More

We stayed here for one night on the way to Inverness. It is a very nice little quiet hotel, not many people around and has stunning views over Loch Ness. The rooms were spacious with a very comfy bed. We had a very tasty dinner in their restaurant although the breakfast was not so good. We had the full scottish... More

This hotel has a lovely view over the Loch Ness. We stayed in a family room which was big and quite cozy. The only negative thing to say was that the shower malfunctioned, so the temperature could not be adjusted to anything other than boiling hot or freezing cold. We stayed in the hotel for dinner which was a pleasant... More

Love Inch Hotel with views to Loch Ness, and our upgrade to 'Ness' (the Bridal Suite with four poster bed) was a delight! Staff were friendly and helpful and dinner and breakfast in the hotel's restaurant were of a high standard. Highly recommend Inch.

The Inch is certainly a little gem of a hotel right on Loch Ness. We stayed for two nights and I cannot thank the staff enough for the wonderful stay, especially the lovely manager Niki.

Me and my partner travelled up on the 31st May 2014. The staff are incredibly friendly, the location is ideal on top of a hill with a view of the Loch. I cannot recall the room we stayed in but it was amazing for the cost. It was at the very top of the hotel, massive bathroom and second room... More

We chose this Hotel as we had been told that Fort Augustus was more pleasant to stay in than Fort William. Its location above the A2 and about 1 miles north of Fort Augustus affords its good views. It is well signed to take you off the A2. Even better there is a short (15 min) very pleasant walk back... More
