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

I spent a most enjoyable stay here last week for a couple of nights with my daughter. The staff were very friendly and most professional - with some multi-tasking. The check in was quick and informative and then the same person took us through to the Brasserie for a snack lunch, which was excellent. We were in a deluxe twin... More

When arriving at the Lovat its grandeur takes your breath away. Stepping into the dark oak hallway with a short ring of the bell , two staff appeared immediately. A quick sign in and we were taken to our room. Room 7 which is just above the front door but don't let that put you off. Bedroom was lovely, bathroom... More

I stay in 10-15 hotels a year, both business and pleasure. I like a good hotel with a nice atmosphere. I can honestly say this is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was great, bathroom was large and had a good selection of toiletries provided. The bar area and sitting rooms had a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere... More

Myself, my mum and my daughters (aged 11 and10) had a one night stay here at The Lovat. The staff were lovely, the rooms were spacious, well equipped and beds very comfy and the food (we dined at the Brasserie both for dinner and breakfast) was just lovely. The children were also made very welcome both in the hotel and... More

We stayed here for one night 29th July and to say it was good is an understatement, from the friendly welcome to the check out we couldn't fault anything. The bedroom was sizeable and clean with a king size bed and all the amenities including robes and slippers, the bathroom was spacious and had a slipper bath just off the... More
