Booked a 3 for 2 Dinner B&B deal. What a great little hotel. We were met by Caroline who carried our luggage to room 21. Beautiful room with well appointed large bath and separate shower overlooking Fort Augustus. Dinners were amazing in the Brasserie. The presentation and quality of the food was excellent as was the service; attentive but not... More
