Not sure about other rooms but ours was dirty,cigarettes,pens and toilet paper behind the radiators,black mould behind the taps on bath and a pair of sock from a previous guest behind curtains, and lots of bits under radiator. Would not stop here again.

We stayed only one night at the Ben Wyvis Hotel as we were just passing. The hotel staff were very friendly and gave us a lot of insight into the area. The place was very beautiful and grand. However, our room was very old fashioned and dated but nevertheless it was clean and tidy. I did feel like the place... More

We had a two night stay on a dinner bed & breakfast basis. This stay was part of family occasion/tour short holiday. The hotel fitted the bill exactly and would certainly go back for this type of stay.

I stayed here last month for two nights as part of a bus tour so it was not my choice to end up here. I always try and start a review with the positives but for this place I cannot think of one nice thing to say about it. We were given a room upstairs towards the back overlooking a... More

just home from a night in the Ben Wyvis! It was an unplanned stopover due to mechanical issues with car/trailer so after a quick search on lastminute it came up with the Ben Wyvis as being closest. I called the hotel to check if they were dog-friendly as we had our dog with us and were told they were and... More

The staff couldn't be friendlier. Stayed twice in a week as we were travelling and it was in a good location. Seemed to be problems with the plumbing and a few aspects of the hotel could do with updating but it is a good hotel in a great location with a lot of character.

We are on a cosmos tour and I cannot believe this hotel or our room. As repeat customers of cosmos, we have been upgraded to the best room, but even our friends room in the middle of the hotel is fine when you consider where we are and this lovely hotel. The only thing that disappoints me is that we... More

Built in the 1870's & brought into the 21st century as best as can be done without destroying its heritage this hotel has stacks of character. The rooms are big, our room had a king size bed & was very comfy. Restaurant meals were of a high standard. The grounds were well maintained & the scenery all around is spectacular.... More

Before I empty cases must tell the world. This whole weekend was filled with lovely scenery, lovely staff, delicious food, comfy bed and VALUE for money. Big thanks to Sharon, Stuart and The Staff whom made it possible. Only downside was binoculars or magnifying glasses would have come in handy to watch the rather small television.

The single room on the first floor was well appointed, although the TV was small and old. Dinner was disappointing, with food adequate but nothing to write home about. The apple and blackberry crumble was obviously made with tinned pear, although the head waiter was not too concerned (or aware). The bar (single barman) struggled to cope with the 2... More
