We had a lovely overnight stay at Loch Duich Hotel (recently under new management ) the hospitality of the new bar manager ( Michael Sorby ) was second to none , It was a busy Saturday night in the bar ,It was good to see the locals returning to the bar a good entertaining nite with a wee sing song and lots of laughter , we were served with a smile and good humour from michael nothing was a problem great effort was made to make sure we enjoyed our stay .
Our room was very clean, the bed very comfy and helped towards a good night s sleep , one or two wee points mentioned , Room door handle was a bit loose shower door a wee bit wobbly etc !! otherwise it was perfect , The scenic veiw from our window was amazin and most certainly made up for a couple of wee hic ups , It seems this bonnie wee hotel is getting back on track and you can see where the efforts are being made to make this hotel an enjoyable place to stay , We ll be returning soon to soak up the beautiful views of the West Coast and to enjoy the atmosphere of the Loch Duich Hotel Good Job everyone !!! a great start !!! see you all again soon !!!!

Room Tip: Room 10 has fabulous views

We have just had our wedding reception there and all the staff were really helpful and friendly and everything went so well.

The hotel is suited to the people looking to stay somewhere in a piece of history as the building is centuries old and has so much character but obviously does not carry the facilities of the modern "average and mundane" chain hotels.

This is not our first trip here and as long as the owners stay the same will not be our last !

Room Tip: If you want the perfect view of Eilean Donan Castle choose room 5 (The honeymoon suite with balcony...

I did not have seafood I had soup twice and beer in the pub. The place seemed to have an odd old odor. I don't think I would have enjoyed a stay in an room however with that ancient odor. I was able to peek into a room of a fellow tavern attendee staying there.

Room Tip: see the room before booking....

Thankfully we were only passing through on our way to Skye. The position of the hotel is fantastic - wonderful views of the lochs, but that is where it stops. We were shown 2 rooms and chose no 12. The curtains were too short and luckily it wasn't a cold night. The toilet seat was cracked, we didn't fancy using the shower! The wash basin was tiny, and as many others have found, if you bent over to brush your teeth you banged your head on the shelf. We decided to eat in after a long days travel. When we went downstairs the room was dark, we were on the wrong place but noone had tols us where to go. Food was Brake Bros or equivalent - expensive for what we had. Breakfast very ordinary - but I did take a breakfast bar for the journey! It was the most expnsive place we stayed during our week in scotland and by far the worst. Overpriced and very rundown. The owners either need to spend a lot updating it or sell up.
