We stayed two nights in early June. First night we dined in the Bistro Restaurant and the second night we dined in the hotel's Station Restaurant. Both were excellent particularly the Station. The service was excellent and staff were very friendly. Room was spacious as were the ensuite facilities although the bathroom smelt a bit musty. Would have no hesitation... More

I'd strongly recommend this Hotel, especially for couples, the room we had was comfortable, good breakfast with plenty of choice. The hotel has a fantastic restaurant within the main building, plenty of good local produce.

My wife and I went for a meal here for my 40th birthday. Upon arrival a lovely lady called Caroline greeted us and showed us to the bar for a cocktail. Everything looked amazing so far. However, we waited at the bar, and waited, and waited. The barman was busy making a restaurant drinks order and didn't even acknowledge us.... More

Stayed here for the first few days of our honeymoon in June and cannot fault it. Caroline and her team work so hard and their attention to detail is extraordinary. Would most definitely recommend The Lovat. nothing is too much trouble and the bistro was exceptional.

The Lovat Loch Ness is a beautiful property. The rooms are small but comfortable and the bathrooms with good toiletries, shower cabinets,hot water in abundance, all very nice. The staff here is ever smiling and very helpful. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant and were surprised by the vegetarian food coz not everywhere you get such good food for vegetarians.... More

Nice hotel but we were expecting the room to be something a bit special for the price, but unfortunately it wasn't. We had a super deluxe double which was recently refurbished but felt very impersonal and a bit like a more luxurious travel lodge, just modern and clean with some extra gadgets (coffee machine etc.). Also the hotel really doesn't... More

We had a very pleasant one night stay at The Lovat. The hotel combines a traditional building and decoration with a modern feel in terms of offering and service. The result was a very relaxed atmosphere with lots of nice finishing touches (from fresh milk, a departing cookie treat, being shown to the room to recycling facilities for guests). We... More

This is a good hotel and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. I only stayed for one night but I had a very comfortable room. I had an exceptional evening meal in the Brasserie (they do a unique take on a steak and kidney pie) and the breakfast was the best I had in eight days in Scotland. What... More
