Fort Augustus was a perfect stopover on trip South, and the hotel was terrific. The service was great, and dinner was excellent. The shower-room was the best of our trip! We were there for one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. Easy to while away a few hours in one of the cafes lining the canal, watching the... More

We had actually booked at another hotel but due to an internet error they had oversold so they paid the difference and we were sent here. Our original room was £100 and this hotel were charging £200. Although the room was extremely well appointed with great food and service I'm not sure it was really a £200-value room. The eastern-european... More

We stayed at the Lovat for just one night, but loved it — even though the wifi was awful and we're wifi addicts! Our room was beautiful, with a beautiful sitting area with a view of Loch Ness and a huge and well equipped bathroom. On our arrival we had a complimentary cream tea, which was lovely. Breakfast in the... More

Staying in this hotel as part of Highlands experience tour package, which meant we couldn't choose the hotel at all. Requested for a family room which was on the ground floor. The room looks really dated. On checking in, the TV connection wasn't working, nothing the staff could do but they tried their best to offer us some DVDs. The... More

We stayed here for one night on our way to sky and a tour of the Highlands. It was my brthday so we booked an evening meal in he Brasserie which I have to say was one of the best meals I have had for a very long time. The staff were very knowledgable of the menu and were only... More

This was the final hotel on our tour to Skye / Highlands, rooms were clean, mattress was great! We had a room a short distance from the main hotel, it was clean and comfortable which was the main thing. Slightly stuff as the heater was on, so open the windows to let the cool air in. Walking distance to restaurants.... More

We were looking at this hotel very spontaneously as we were doing a last minute trip to the highlands. The people in the hotel are super friendly and the hotel is absolutely beautiful. We also had a dinner in the hotel restaurant which was very delicious. The atmosphere is amazing. We had a stroll through Port Augustus and when we... More

We had dinner which was excellent , my wife had a cheesecake which was soooo special (ask for the baby bell) it was the best pudding she says she has ever had... More

We spend just one night at the Lovat. Nice room, modern bathroon and good food at the Brasserie. We had booked at the restaurant "Station road" (3 rosette restaurant) for a set 5 course menu but in the meantime it closed down. So we were transfered to the Brasserie which is not really the same thing.

Many thanks for taking the time to review us on trip advisor, without feedback we cannot improve what we do. We are glad you liked the room, bathroom and the food at the Brasserie. We are also hugely disappointed that we had to close our Station Road restaurant, we lost some key members of kitchen staff (who are very hard... More

Lovely place but found the cleaning was a little disappointing. The front of our room had been used as an ashtray so the path was covered in butts. A simple sweep could have made the presentation quite a bit better......Breakfast in the morning seamed to be a struggle for the staff. Simple requests for toast etc was difficult.

Many thanks for pointing out the issue of the cigarette butts outside your room, i spoke with our head housekeeper about this situation and we now have a system in place to prevent this happening again, so thanks for...
