Staying here for 2 nights with my parents, we were more than happy with the accommodation and service we received. The staff were pleasant efficient, and the manager showed an interest in us and made several helpful suggestions to enhance our service. The range of choice in the menu was perhaps a little limited, but the food was of good... More

Just returned from a three night stay at this hotel. I'll be honest, I only booked it because it was cheap and close to the hills I intended to climb over my stay. I wasn't expecting anything more than a bed for the night but boy oh boy was I pleasantly surprised. My welcome was so warm despite the reception... More

My wife and I have just returned from a 2-night stay in the Highlander and before writing my review I had a look at several previous reviews and must say a few appear to be overly picky. Our double room was very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom didn't have the tub the wife would have preferred but the shower was... More

Not bespoke as the name sounds. A typical touring hotel but with nice staff and basic rooms. Good for bikers and coach parties not boutique at all. Clean, good price as a stopp off. The location is very good and i liked the pace of life. Value for money but wrong corporate name - if you ever see the name... More

We stayed here due to the fact that we had a voucher from ItIsOn, which we thought was a fairly good deal. First things first, the room was fine. It was clean, big, and the bed was really comfy. However in the morning, at around 6am, we were awoken by the noise of the other guests having showers, chatting, walking... More

We stayed in the Highlander and the staff was very nice and helpful. We arrived late after hotel food service had stopped but the front desk person ran to try to catch the chef before he went hope. When he had already left, she directed us to a close by market with ready made sandwiches. Room was clean and roomy... More

Set conveniently on the edge of Newtonmore, this hotel surprised us with its cleanliness and comfort. All the staff were friendly and very obliging. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. We asked for a quiet room and got it ! Maybe the bedroom walls are a bit thin, but didn't detract from an unforgettable holiday based at this well run hotel.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For true Highland hospitality come to the Highlander, a hotel renowned for its good food and warm welcome. The hotel is an ideal base for touring the North of Scotland with mountain ranges, forests, lochs and river valleys waiting to be explored. Wind down in our inviting restaurant serving an array of dishes made from locally sourced produce. Perhaps a wee dram from the bar would suit; choose a whisky from one of the many local distilleries for which this area is famous for throughout the world. ... more   less
