The building is great, very spacious, impressive too, as are the surroundings. The building and rooms are flowing over with romantic/classic Scottish atmosphere. Food is good too. We had a nice dinner, after which we relaxed a bit on one of the comfy sofas by the fireplace. Breakfast was good too, though some items ran out before we had a... More

We had room 9 and it was lovely. No view on the loch but a big room with a giant comfortable bed. Only bummer was that the bathroom had no regulable heater so it was very cold inside the bathroom and no chances to heat it up. The staff was very friendly and forthcoming, the hotel itself has a nice... More

Stayed for 2 nights. The room is newly decorated. Nice bathroom. My room number 4 does not have a good view but my friends' room number 7 does. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. It's the middle of August, i.e. highest season. The breakfast is very good. The dinner at the café was memorable. You could... More

This hotel is an old country home and it has some charm to the hotel itself, but the room we had was terrible!! We were in the "new" part of the house which is a corridor just off the main entrance. The minute we opened the door connecting the corridor to the main area we could smell a really musty... More

We only stayed for one night, and were hoping for 'Monarch of the Glen' style charm. The place is indeed beautiful, a typical Scottish lodge. And the service was fantastic - the girl on the front desk was lovely. But the whole place looked tired and gloomy. We sat in the main drawing room in the evening, it was a... More

We had a lovely room overlooking the golf course and the loch. Our initial impression was probably that it was a bit "worn" but it quickly grew on us, and we felt really at home. It was probably the most relaxing place we have stayed with some really nice reception areas such as the "Morning Room". The staff were excellent,... More

Another super stay - for a week, this time - at Skeabost. Happy to return here. Lovely authentic hunting lodge with a beautiful wooden hall and stairs and pleasant furnishings in the hotel itself - and atmospheric surroundings a little away from it all.

We found the hotel easy enough bearing in mind other travellers advice of using the second entrance. The building is stunning, the public areas (lots of rooms to sit and pass the time) are spacious and well kept. We were really disappointed when we saw our room though, we were under the impression that all rooms were in the main... More

very nice rooms, hotel a bit outdated on the outside, but surely more then OK on the inside ! diner was OK, but expectations were a wee bit higher. Quiet location, ideal for resting. The golfcourse seems a bit small (we did not play)
