A jewel in the heart of Scotland. If you are looking for fantastic food, friendly welcoming staff and a touch of old world grandeur then this is the place to stay. Our room was small but perfectly formed with a huge en suite and a view over the gardens to Loch Ness. Our meal in the brassiere was nothing short... More

Lovely hotel, lovely annex room and superb meal. En route to Skye broke the journey to stay here and have to say this is a lovely hotel. Friendly staff, superb meal in the brasserie washed down with a lovely Merlot. Exceeded all expectations and happy to recommend. Delighted to have found the Lovat, sure to return soon. Thanks to all... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in Mid April. We stayed in one of the Studio Apartments. Firstly, the price for a 2 night stay was fantastic value, roughly half the price of what we were expecting. As we don't drive, we weren't sure if this would be a suitable place for public transport users to spend... More

A very comfortable and relaxing hotel. We spent 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. I would highly recommend staying here. The breakfast was really lovely especially the scrambled eggs. But the food in The Station Road Restaurant was truly exceptional and a real experience, you have to visit here if you can to see how clever the chef there is.... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights May bank holiday. Very friendly staff, we had a room that was suitable for our two dogs, great facility and very clean. If I was to have a negative I would say that some of the staff were too efficient, wanting to take plates when you have not finished your meal. Overall... More

we walked in and the welcome was sincere, nothing seemed too much trouble and we were shown the lounge areas and brasserie, we have a large dog so stayed in an annexe room which is lovely with a wet room and our dog had welcome treats. As it is our honeymoon my husband had organised flowers which were gorgeous and... More

We only stayed for 1 night at The Lovat as we were moving around but found it to be lovely and friendly. Our rooms were beautiful, modern but cosy and with everything you could want (including umberella!) We even received home-baked cookies as we checked-out! I would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed a the The Lovat in March. It was a real delight upon arrival to see such a beautiful property. We opted to upgrade our room to a deluxe double - and it was fabulous. Everything from the huge bed in the really spacious room to the very well equipped bathroom (don't waste space in your... More

We took a last minute, one night, mid week break and having stayed previously couldn't pass up the chance of staying again. Beautifully clean and well maintained room with the biggest bathroom I think I've been in ( and what's the secret to the shiny shower doors??!?). Great view. We ate again in the brasserie where the food is amazing... More
