“romance at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights at the Davoit Lodge and we were stunned by this beautiful house. It is surrounded by trees and hills and has a perfect position for citys like Inverness, Fort Augustus and Elgin, and also for wonderful hiking adventures through the Highlands.
The Lodge itself is decorated with so much warmth and cosiness and every room has its own character and decoration.
The breakfest is also very delicious and I recommend this place to everyone who prefers to experience a typical scotish environment. It's awsome!

We stayed two nights at the Daviot Lodge on our recent trip to Scotland. It was such a great place to stay - we specifically wanted a quiet place with good access to Culloden Battlefield and Cawdor Castle. We had a great stay in a very comfortable bed with nice breakfasts. Margaret was really lovely - she even went out of her way to send my husband's computer power cord to us back in the US. Highly recommended.

I fell in love with Tunnock's teacakes. I have already requested that my local store that sells items from the UK get some.

Charming, wonderful service, 5 minutes from out of town. This place is a great find at an amazing price! You can't find a better gem for your stay! When we couldn't find a place in town this place saved our night and was perfect!

This place is beautiful and the owners are extremely sweet! Sad I'm only staying for a night! The view is beautiful. The house is well appointed. I can't explain how impressed I am! I would recommend this place anyone staying in the Inverness area!

We stayed in the Daviot Lodge for five nights while visiting Inverness and the Highlands. The location was ideally located for trips as far afield as Balmoral Castle in the east and Eilean Donan Castle in the west. But at the end of each day, we came "home" to a very pleasant, well-appointed and affordable place to stay. And, each day starts with a breakfast prepared according to your instructions given the previous night. Alex and Margaret are very nice hosts who make you feel welcome and offer advice on sights to see and places to eat. I'd return to Daviot Lodge without a second thought.

We spent just one night there, part of which was spent finding an available table in a(ny) restaurant in Inverness, but this did not compromise our appreciation for this immaculate guest house. With a view over misty meadows, we spent a comfortable night and morning (including well executed breakfast) at the Daviot Lodge. The attention to detail, in the room and the rest of the house, was staggering. If you need to be in or close to Inverness, consider this option!
