Stayed for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon. Our (standard double) room was very good, with a view of Loch Ness in the distance and a very decent sized bathroom. Everything we could have wanted was provided, it was clean, warm and the room servicing outstanding. Breakfast was simply one of the best we have come across, with an... More

The room in the hotel was great. Very clean, and comfortable. The bar while well advertised was empty and not representative of the local pubs. Breakfast was all the std stuff with a few additions. I'd stay there again but I'd go to a B&B if there for more that 1 night. Wi fi worked but sporadic.

We could not fault our stay at the Lovat. A gorgeous wee hotel that manages to match Highland charm with modern comforts perfectly. It has the most beautiful veiwpoint over Fort Augustus, and the start of Loch Ness of any lodgings in the area. Couple that with all the mod cons you could dream of... an amazingly comfortable bed, beautiful... More

We stayed here for one night when attending out friends wedding. The hotel is situated on a hill overlooking the loch, canal and hills. We stayed in the annexe room which was much nicer than we expected. the room was a good size, spotlessly clean, with a wet room bath/shower room. We had full sky TV and a very comfy... More

Rooms are a little dated, as is the restaurant. Was expecting a little more for the price to be honest. It's well located but overall not that great. Thought that it could be a little nicer given the downstairs area is so nicely set up. The place has excellent branding and a great website, the actual experience is a bit... More

Stayed at The Lovat for just the one night. Welcomed by friendly Aussie girl who then showed us to our room. It was one of the outside rooms which looked like a 3 star motel. However inside the room was spacious and modern with a huge bathroom and walk in shower. Disappointed that our parking space was taken up by... More

We stayed at five different hotels across our Scottish Highlands trip, and while this was the most expensive of them it I can't say it was the best. It was nice, and I have not big complaints, but it was not really great value for money. Had the price reflected the value, I'd be giving this place a much better... More

We stayed at The Lovat for one night only in August and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel has been modernised to the highest standards but with keeping the old character intact. Our room (master) was spacious and so was the bathroom with good quality soaps, shampoos and creams. High quality linen on the bed with a lovely... More

We stayed gor only one night, but wished it had been for longer. The hotel is in a lovely setting, it is very comfortable and well appointed and we enjoyed exceptional breakfasts. It just feels superior and special.

From the time we entered the hotel nothing was too much trouble for all the staff. Delightful rooms for us and the other couple we were with. Breakfasts were prepared with care and the variety offered amazing. We ate in the Bistro on the last night and were not disappointed. Wow what a meal ! We didn't see all the... More
