We visited in April 15. Found it clean n tidy, slightly tired but still quaint. Food was great with waiting staff very good with nothing any bother. Well located for places of interests. good prices and well worth what we paid for it. Would go back.

This hotel has 3 blocks, with the reception , lounge, resturant and bar in one and all the accomodation in the other two. Which is a problem if / when its rains. Our room had not been cleaned properly and the ceiling paper was peeling off. Food, staff and bar were good. Rooms need updating like the new bathrooms. Ok... More

An unpretentious hotel, quite adequate of our 4-night stay as part of a "package": comfortable beds and hot water, but the walls and ceilings are a bit thin and the plumbing noisy. The food is good but not well-presented, and the puddings were marvellous! Staff pleasant and helpful.

Came here in April with Newmarket holidays. Rooms lovely and warm and very clean. Service from all hotel staff was excellent, particulary in the restaurant. Food choice was excellent and the food nice and hot. Would recommend this place to anyone. Also would recommend Newmarket holidays as they were very organised and made the trip special, at a good value... More

The hotel staff were very nice and so efficient nothing was a problem for them day or night. The food and presentation in the... More

The staff were friendly, helpful and superefficient. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Bed comfortable, obviously fairly new, with nice duvet and linens. Desk/ dressing table was of a different vintage and looked a bit cheap, but hey, that's no dealbreaker! There was plenty of storage space, and a little table and chair, separate from desk, if you wanted... More

Spent 4 nights at this hotel. The staff were friendly and very helpful particularly with my requests for any special dietary requirements. The public areas were in good condition and were clean. My room was in need of a little TLC but was clean and the bed was comfortable. Cons to staying here: the more motel feel with having to... More

If you want a cheap break in the Highlands,the Highland hotel in Newtonmore is good. Although it is a bit dated the room was very clean and had everything we needed. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We got dinner one night that was okay. For what we paid I have no complaints -apart from the Internet. I knew we... More

The staff were mainly European and each and every one of them was polite and very helpful. Our room was lovely and warm with lashings of... More

Stayed two nights with an Itison voucher initially as a base for skiing. Could not believe the tariff displayed at desk as £120 for a double room, nor that there were still places like this; Yards and yards of swags and tails in the public rooms! In serious need of bringing into the 21st century. However it was spacious, warm... More
