The exceptionally cold weather meant the lounge was a bit chilly during the day. The good news is we have had more radiators installed in the lounge so hopefully we will not... More

I found my stay at the Highland Hotel very satisfying indeed. The food was excellent. and so was the entertainment. The staff couldn't do enough for us. The little touches like the fruit and chocolate plate (together with a sample of the national beverage), the Christmas card personally addressed and the calendar, made me feel that I wasn't just a...

The hotel was as expected having stayed at several other Shearing's hotel previously. The room was comfortable and we had a good view of the village (just a shame that there wasn't any snow). We were on the 3rd floor which could be a problem for less fit guests as there is only one small slow lift. The food was... More
