Stayed for two nights as part of a group your. The rooms were clean. The staff was ... I'll be kind ... "Grumpy". The fining room staff could not handle two groups at one time, so we had to wait. The food was mediocre at best. Positives ... The hotel is. Short walk from the town, which is very small.... More

This place is a throwback to the worst of cheesy 1970’s Scottish tourism. Thankfully, things have changed but the Ben Wyvis Hotel hasn’t. Negatives: - No check in until 3pm. Staff wouldn’t call to check if room was ready, even though I told them I’d just had a very long drive - Payment up front - £2 charge to use... More

Arrived here on 22/8/15 for a 2 night stay with a coach party of 23 party. Now being the driver I'm not expecting a penthouse suite or the biggest or best room in a hotel. Been doing this job for 20 years now. Arrived at 7.30 pm dinner was booked for 7.45 so it was a case of luggage in... More

The four of us only visited for evening meal as our designated hotel were only serving the evening meal in the public bar next to the pool table!! First impressions were not good as the lounge area was somewhat tired and in need of some TLC. If the rooms were the same I would not want to pay the prices... More

Don't want to knock this hotel as it seems to suit lots of people. But, it is more suitable for older couples. Get in early for breakfast as the que can be long. Rooms are ok, maybe a bit tired. Public areas are much the same.

We stayed for a wedding in 2014. In general we were very disappointed with our stay, it was extremely over priced for the quality it provided. The previous night we had stayed in a hotel in Inverness (Kingsmill) which was light years better and at a cheaper rate. I understand however that once the hotel knows you are attending a... More

Stayed here one night while on business and found the hotel to be average! It is very old fashioned inside. My room wasn't particularly clean with dead flies on the window ledges, dust on the units, hair in the plug hole, bin hadn't been emptied. I paid for half board and found the menu very limiting but ok! An extra... More

Fantastic place to visit and stay at this hotel. Beautiful scenery and surrounding countryside. Our room was not good with thin walls and hard single beds. Stayed here as part of a tour group for 2 nights however, some members had fantastic large rooms with views from the front of the hotel. Bar was fantastic. Breakfast was good and dinner... More

Our friends booked this for us and I wish they hadn't! Rooms smallest I've seen, TV miniature and bathroom stuck in the eighties with no water pressure at all. My wife couldn't eat her breakfast as was all over cooked and rubbery! I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I live in the Highlands and I am honestly gutted... More

Booked to stay here as a treat at the start of our holiday. Although the hotel looks lovely from the outside and is set in the attractive village of Strathpeffer we had a really disappointing stay. On the plus side the hotel was clean, the double room a decent size and the food good. However, the twin room was very... More
