On arrival the first thing we noticed was Mackay's hotel residents sitting in the sun in front of the hotel drinking a case of Strongbow cider with their shirts off. Welcome to Mackay's hotel people. The manageress who checked us in was nothing short of confused and had failed to read the notes on the booking which gave details of... More

A bit doubtful at first because of some poor reviews online but very glad we did stay there as the room (in the travel lodge to one side) was clean and comfortable and all that was needed, although basic, and the breakfast was excellent also the staff, at breakfast and at other times. I left something behind in a drawer... More

Warm welcome and couldnt have been more helpful at reception -taking time to give us a choice of room. Dinner was very tasty and the waitress from hungary was wonderful-honest and vivacious - with a great sense of humour. When i left a jacket behind they managed to trace it and send it on to me . Many thanks.

Worst tired hotel I've been to ever. Room was in desperate need of tlc. things fell off wall in bathroom. Overlooking a pile of rubble from room. Everything was the cheapest they could find. Breakfast even had Tesco value yoghurt! !! Toast was stone cold. Never again@

On reading some of the previous comments was a bit apprehensive, however, should not have worried. We booked dinner, bed and breakfast through Easy Breaks for three nights and paid £65 each. Prior to going requested room with a shower and we were accommodated in the travel lodge. The room was comfortable and spacious and the shower was ideal for... More

Stayed here 2 nights on business room decor and furniture a bit dated but toweks bed linen bathroom all clean and fresh. Meals were also good home cooking at a very reasonable cost. Sky sports on tv in bar and lounge for those who want to watch the football. Overall perfect for the travelling working man. Would recommend it

We stayed in the rear part of the hotel, what they call the motel. It is a modern building with nice rooms. Only complaint would be the beds aren't the comfiest!... More

Strathpeffer is a lovely village that has a good number of very big hotels due to the Victorian Spa so they have to work hard for custom. The deal through easy breaks website was unbeatable at £45 per person for 2 nights DB&B so it was worth a try. The hotel is a complex of 3 main areas, my room... More
