A little more expensive perhaps, but well worth it for the excellent location, warm welcome, comfortable room, good night's sleep and a great Scottish breakfast. The Lovat is based just a few minutes walk from the centre of Fort Augustus and the shores of Loch Ness, set on a small hill that affords views of the loch from rooms at... More

Quite pricey, but worth the money. We stayed in April in a lovely room with a view of the gorgeous garden. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The staff were welcoming and efficient, and the public rooms were magnificient. The food was also outstanding. The location was great too, being just a short stroll from the locks of Fort... More

We stayed a the Lovat for one night in March. The entire experience was good, with email reminders and follow-up, polite and friendly staff (from reception to the restaurant right through to the chamber maids) and really excellent food in the Brasserie. We ate early, at about 6 pm, and got an early-bird discount. We were travelling with our small... More

There is a lot to like about the Lovat, in addition to the Fort Augustus setting. Our room (8) had a great view down Loch Ness and was spacious and well equipped. It had two towel rails and a TV in the ensuite bathroom, both unusual in my experience. The staff were friendly and the service generally good. The restaurant... More

My daughter and I stayed for one night in March. Our room was fine although why we were as far away from reception as you could get on a quiet winters stay I really don't know. We were disappointed that the restaurant was closed on Sunday and Monday nights but were given recommendations by the friendly staff. Great breakfast and... More

We stayed here for a recent weekend in one of the Studio Rooms which are external to the main hotel building. On arrival we were happy with the room, very clean and a really good size. When we got there on a fairly chilly day the room itself was a bit chilly to so we bumped up the thermostat for... More

Experienced The Lovat with my boyfriend for my birthday as a weekend away, and I can happily say we had a brilliant time. The hotel is beautiful, we arrived rather late ( due to snow on our drive up) and the young man on the reception was super helpful and our later arrival was no problem at all. We were... More

This was a return trip to the Lovat for us and I'm happy to say it was another lovely break. Firstly the food was if anything better than our last visit. Secondly the staff are so friendly and go out of their way to ensure you have a lovely stay, nothing is too much trouble. The room was nice, but... More

We went to loch ness yesterday (friday 21st March) and decided it was time for some lunch when we stumbled across this hotel. We walked in at about 2:40pm not realising that they stopped serving at 2:30 but the man that greated us was very nice and spoke to the kitchen to see if we could have something light to... More

NOT “loving it at the Lovat” We stayed for 1 night at this hotel, or rather the builders/ workers block which can only be described as resembling a square box straight out of a holiday camp. The room is described as an exterior room, it is in fact one of six rooms built on the end of the car park.... More

Not “loving your review”. Yuk – what a terribly disappointing review to read this lovely bright, sunny Wednesday… …terribly disappointing because: 1. We wanted to get in touch with you post stay but we failed to get your email address on arrival and we had no house number/name for your street address to send a letter regarding your complaint/observations on...
