We went to Strathpeffer with a David Urquhart tour from Central Scotland. When we arrived at Mackay's, we were greeted by the Manager - Sarah and given a rundown on the hotel and provided keys to all of the guests. At the time of booking, we had requested a low floor because of a mobility problem. David Urquart Travel had... More

Stayed for a long weekend on coach trip (be prepared for long journey if going from Birmingham, 12hrs to get there and roughly the same back, including pick-ups and breaks). Second time we have stayed at this hotel. Stayed in a room in the annex, very warm, clean and tidy. Breakfast was very good, and evening meals excellent, we were... More

Staff were very welcoming. Told us about the pool being closed but we were not there for the pool anyway. The reception area was bright and tidy but seats were a bit outdated but comfortable. Room was spacious and clean. Plenty of room for clothes. Tv in the room a bit small as I don't have good vision. Towels were... More

My wife and I have just returned from a David Urquhart coach holiday at this hotel and we had a fantastic time. Having read the reviews we were very pleasantly surprised to find that very little appeared to be true! The only thing I would agree with is that the room that we were in was very tired and really...

Before even entering the hotel I knew I was going to be disappointed and dreaded seeing my room! We drove up to the hotel to check in just after 1500, you could see in the conservatory windows that there were still used cups etc from either breakfast or lunch sitting there (we had been in to try and check in...

Arrived in strathpeffer at 8.30pm on a Saturday night although not staying at Mackay's hotel we were advised that we would be able to eat there as it is one of the hotels serving meals slightly later. After initially being ignored by two members of staff we were shown to a table, again ignored for ten minutes, we were excited... More
