The hotel is located few hundred feet from the "centre" of Fort Augustus, in a great old building and a motel-like addition with rooms accessible from the ground level. It has a cosy lobby, nice restaurant and serves great breakfasts. Rooms are spacious, comfy and well equipped, staff is helpful and polite. Opt for the room in the main hotel... More

Having been decided to leave a truly appalling Hotel where we had booked a three day New Year celebration my wife and I had reluctantly accepted that our Scottish holiday was ruined and our Hogmoney celebration destroyed. All we expected was a bed and breakfast. Someone up there must have been smiling on us when purely by chance we came... More

Now and again you come across a hotel that you just fall in love with. For us, The Lovat is such a place. We stayed over New Year and had a great time. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel most welcome, with the wonderful staff being attentive without being obtrusive. Our room (No 7) had a... More

If you are expecting gastro pub you will be disappointed. The food and cocktails are worthy of the best in Lobdon. Had a delicious meal and they were extremely patient with my gregarious and slightly "merry" friends.

We've been here twice now and we'd definitely recommend it to anyone. Its classic exterior and modern rooms marry well, with the service of a four or five star hotel. The food, both at breakfast and in the brasserie at dinner time, is excellent. You can, as we did, also order a snack throughout the day and sit by the... More

We got married at the Lovat on the 27th of September 2014 and had a totally fabulous day. In the run up to the wedding Caroline, the manager was really good with some strange requests such as a space in their freezer for our ice cream wedding cake and they were very flexible with the menu for our day -...
