This time we stayed 3 nights and it continues to be good. We had a room in the hotel which was not very spacious, but had most things we needed (a bit more space for clothes would be good). Food was great as expected.

I don't often write reviews, but simply had to let everyone know how great this place is. OK, it might not be the fanciest hotel in Scotland - but in all honesty they get all the things that matter absolutely right - and is reasonably priced too. We stayed one night on the way up to the Northern Highlands and... More

We popped in for a drink and ended up staying the night at The Lovat, which turned out to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Not just the comfortable, well appointed rooms, the superb food, the great location and views but the friendliest, most professional staff we have ever had the pleasure or meeting. Even... More

Beautiful hotel in wonderful location overlooking park, the town and the Loch. Rooms are large by UK standards and beds are very comfortable (our party had 3 rooms), but it is really the staff who top-off all the other features of this hotel and make it an excellent 5 star rating rather than a very comfortable 4 star.

Loving the Lovat! The room (no. 6) was SPECTACULAR with superb views down to Loch Ness, tons of space and lots of natural daylight. Enormous emporor size bed, very large en suite bathroom with tile TV, free standing bath (double ended) and dual sinks and showers. Excellent tea and coffee making facilities. But what really makes the Lovat special is... More

What a wonderful visit we had at The Lovat. Spent three nights at this fabulous hotel and had such a lovely time. We ate two nights in the Brasserie and the food, while a little bit expensive, was worth every single penny. Unusual combinations and beautifully presented. But it was the staff who really make the place. Without exception the... More

We stopped here on our way up north to Harris. We had a nice big room with a good en suite bathroom on the top floor. The restaurant staff were obliging when we asked for a children's fish when this wasn't on the menu and also at breakfast in providing more freshly baked croissants. The locality is great with Loch... More

Stayed at the Lovat Hotel for a weekend break and I must say that I was very impressed. First of all the staff went out of their way to make the guests feel welcome. The room was extremely cosy and clean and finally the meal at the restaurant was one of the best meals I ever had. Would definitely recommend... More

We have been to the Lovat before and this was our 2nd visit. Beautifull food, friendly people and the rooms are amazing. We had a room with a very very cold bathroom, as it was Feb i was dreading to go in the shower or to the bathroom because of it. Lots of workmen where staying in the hotel at... More

I attended a small wedding at the Lovat, and though my husband and I stayed somewhere else, I highly recommend this as a wedding venue. The ceremony took place on the lawn, followed by dinner in a room with large windows overlooking the picturesque village. I was especially impressed by the staff who truly went above and beyond to make... More
