We're just back from a 2-night stay (Sat-Mon) at the Highlander. It was a 5pm Big Deal (£99 total bill) & weren't sure what to expect. Firstly, we would wholeheartedly agree with the other reviewers about the warm welcome & excellent customer service. Every single interaction with every staff member was friendly & polite; we could not fault them. It's... More

Stayed for two nights in a generous clean, comfortable room, with a cosy kingsized bed and a lovely hot shower. Meals were excellent and easily adapted to my mostly vegan diet. The most impressive part of our stay, however , was the helpful, friendly and attentive staff, who's attention to detail and welcoming manor will ensure a return visit. Thank... More

Every year we have our Annual Re Union in the Highlander Hotel - great service, food and all at a fair price, despite over 140 getting served for the evening meal it is always excellent. A big than you.

A friendly comfortable hotel staffed by helpful efficient staff. Bedrooms comfortable with en-suite facilities. The food was nicely presented & tasty. Slight drawback was the Internet signal,which was poor. I enjoyed staying at this hotel& would certainly stay there again. In addition this is a good centre for trips to the places of interest in the area.I was on a... More

Been to many hotels around Scotland and this one is really good. All staff pleasant and very helpful. Dining room staff are some of the best we have encountered. Not hovering about but just seem to have the knack of being there when needed. 10 out of 10 for that, well done. Only 4 out of 5 as we found... More
