By reading reviews I was dreading going after I booked it for my husbands surprise 70th Birthday, well how people can say so much about this hotel not being up to standard its not true, when we arrived we were welcomed with the manager of the hotel on the bus who introduced herself and gave us our room numbers and...

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 The reception area was bright and tidy but seats were a bit outdated but comfortable.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

This hotel needs to shut down over the winter and have a complete refurbishment. It is old, dark dated and not fit for modern day needs. To have three quarters of the rooms with a bath only is totally unacceptable. We were in room 1 which was right behind reception, noisy and dark the curtain was held on by a... More

I agree with others who have done a review. It is VERY Run down. 3 showers in the whole of the Main Building. It is Overpriced. My feeling is it is SO rundown it would benefit from a bomb. It took 40 mins. for anyone to show an interest and book us in. The 8a.m. - 9a.m. breakfast slot does... More
