We stayed at this hotel on a Shearings Great highland railways trip and found it to be excellent.The accommodation was exactly as requested on our Shearings booking. The hotel has a lovely spacious Victorian feel to it with beautiful oak panelling in the downstairs area. Lovely wide staircases all decked out in tartan carpet.Our room had been refurbished with a... More

We stayed here for 4 nights with a coach tour, the rooms were ok, the choice at meal times and the quality of what was served was really good. The evening entertainment was quite good,especially the highland dancers. There isn't much to do/see directly outside the hotel but we enjoyed our stay and found it very relaxing.

Excellent hotel for short break in a lovely part of Scotland. Quaint village with many Victorian built houses. Good 5 day break with Shearings. Food ok for cost of holiday but sure this could be improved. All public areas were kept very clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. Good bar staff.

Stayed here Sat 18th July 2015, on a night stop for a visit to the Highlands. Arrived approx 7.30pm, staff were all kind and curteous, made us feel very welcome! Quick bite to eat in the bar area was well priced and tasty. Drinks were reasonably priced as well. The downstairs communal areas were very traditional, comfortable and very clean.... More

We have just returned today from a very pleasant week in this Hotel and having just read the review from the previous reviewer...obviously young, I find the reference to the ages in general of the other guests as making them feel they were in a time warp, to be rather insulting to say the least. It must be accepted that... More

My husband and I found this hotel off TripAdvisor and Booking.com. The price and reviews were exactly what we were looking for in our Highlands experience. Now we did not want nor expect the "Holiday Inn" experience we could have had in Inverness, but we were surprised with the age of most other guests. We felt like we walked into... More

It has been mine and my husbands 1st visit to Scotland. We booked on the shearings mystery holiday and ended up at the highland hotel and it's been lovely. Our room was big enough for the 2 of us. Very clean and quiet. The bathroom was of a good size and the bath nice and deep..... Just how I like... More
