Beautiful 'Old' hotel. wood panelling/ 3/4 spacious lounges, wonderful staircase any bride would gladly give her tiara to glide gracefully down. Food very good. Bedroom(s) small but clean and comfortable. But NO SHOWER !!! HOWEVER, the walls seemed to be literally paper-thin. Noises: Man next door snored all night./every night. I could even hear his kettle coming to the boil... More

Our group was looked after very well. The reception and restaurant staff were excellent: friendly, attentive and thoughtful. We enjoy outdoor activity and museums and found lots to do in the locality for all levels of fitness.

Spent 4 days at this hotel. last week with my family. What a gem! From our initial greeting to our departure all of the staff in every department were courteous, efficient and above all, friendly. Guests are made to feel important and, not as in some hotels, nuisances to be tolerated. What a great bunch of people the Manager has... More

Enjoyed a lovely stay at the Highland Hotel. You can always rely on a warm welcome and friendly efficient service here.The room was clean ,quiet ,warm and comfortable and the meals of a good standard. Strathpeffer is a excellent base for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside so will certainly be returning on a future trip north.
