Just got back from a David Urquart coach holiday and have to say never again, I personally think the trips out could have a lot more going on instead of just being taken there and told to have a walk round do a bit of shopping then return to the coach for the journey back to the hotel I could...

Service very good. Staff kept back dinner for us as late arrivals, and it wasn't dried out. Pleasant room in the new part of the hotel, clean and all good except the weedy electric shower. Bar very basic(no Guiness) Breakfast and dinner (with wine) quite OK, plain but good sized portions. Swimming pool small but OK On any measure a... More

We stayed 3 nights in the hotel and found our room adequate. It was in an annexe to the back of the main reception area . This appeared to be the more modern part of the hotel as the rest of the hotel is in need of a total overhaul. It is very disjointed with 3 separate buildings and has... More

Twin room B&B for £42 on a Saturday, and the annex room was large with modern furniture and a good bathroom with shower. Breakfast was good too, porridge and a full Scottish cooked set you up for the day. Hadn't expected much with the money paid on Booking.com but will definitely use this hotel again when touring/exploring the highlands North... More

Enjoyed area. Lovely scenery and good excursions with our coach. Linen and rooms clean enough just in need of some T.L.C. Food, as I said before was really good with good choices to suit most peoples tastes.

It wasn't fancy, was a bit oudated but was clean and totally fine. We were part of a group of 5 and we were... More

Stayed as part of a David Urquhart Tour. As with most of his hotels, in need of an upgrade. We were in room 11 and we did not have a shower. Had to shut room curtain as people who were in the newly refurbished part at the back would see in our room as the entrance door was opposite our... More

We have stayed in many easy break hotels at different locations in Scotland over the years and have always had good experiences however we have just had a weekend in Mackays hotel in Strathpeffer which was quite an eye opener. Although we must admit it was very cheap for two nights dinner bed and breakfast it left a lot to... More

Having looked for some time for a room near Inverness it was apparent that there were many events nearby coinciding with our proposed stay. I wondered why a room was available at Mackays. Slightly troubled by this I ploughed on. Arriving at Mackays I knew that it had seen better days and the overwhelming smell of Febreeze didn't bode well!!... More
