We have stayed there twice now and have enjoyed very good accommodation and excellent food. Bar staff and management were very friendly. I would not hestitate to recommend The Lovat to friends and family.

this is a lovely hotel and the rooms are very comfortable. The service by the staff was faultless and I would recommend the food in the hotel. I would definitely stay here again if I was in this area.

We stayed for one night at the Lovat in September of 2014 en route to the north. We were welcomed at the front desk by a charming person who took us to our room and made sure that we knew how everything worked! Service and food in the restaurant was first class. We were very impressed with the environmental upgrades... More

The location is perfect for a romantic or family stay. A hotel and restaurant that far excels all the other local hotels with its stylish décor cleanliness and customer services. Attention to detail was excellent and the food is lovely with a great standard of presentation. If this is too expensive try one the local bars, they serve food daily... More

Could not fault this hotel, it has everything, beautiful views, comfortable surroundings, very pleasant staff, wonderful food, I can not find anything to moan about. It was perfect, I recommended it to some friends who spent their honeymoon there and they were just as thrilled as we were.

It's the location that makes this place rather than the hotel itself. If you had booked here expecting lavish comfort you would have been disappointed but if you booked it because it is so close to Loch Ness and gave you great access to the area and village, well then you would be happy. The place is a bit tired... More

Professional, attentive & friendly service. Stunning bedroom view, if you're lucky. If this is important, worthwhile enquiring when booking. Last visit was for a Winter hotel function - very well done.

We stayed at the Lovat mid way through doing the Rat Race, Coast to Coast in September this year. Not only was it a welcome break in the middle of a challenging race, but I honestly can't fault the Lovat for anything. I have been fortunate to stay in some of the best hotels in the UK and in Europe... More

My wife and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon tour of Scotland. It was our stop between Edinburgh and Skye. It's in an absolute beautiful location and very close to Loch Ness. We easily drove to Urquhart Castle from here, so that's was nice. Our room and dinner were excellent. Bed and bath all very clean with no... More

Stayed at the Lovat in August on my first trip back to Scotland after 50 years. There where 8 of us aged from mid forties to late 80's and everyone truly loved the place. The location is fantastic, central to many beautiful parts of Scotland, the food is top shelf, the service was great and friendly, rooms were very comfortable... More
