From the outside, this hotel looks adorable and rustic. I was really not impressed with the quality inside however. I stayed here with a tour group of 50 people and we were assigned rooms. I was very disheartened to find out that the room my sister and I were assigned was a third of the size of the room our friends were assigned (they even had a bidet!). The moment we walked into our room, we saw a huge brown spider in the bathtub. Not the greatest way to welcome us to the hotel, but I suppose that can't be helped. The room smelled old and a bit musty, just like the rest of the lodge. The wifi was only accessible from the bottom of the stairs. I had to partially block the stairwell in order to write an email home. The food was decent, however we had to wait ages for it to be brought out. Our entire group was eating dinner in the same (very small) room and there was no fan or air conditioning so all the windows steamed up. It was quite unpleasant.
The only thing I liked about this hotel was the proximity to Loch Ness. I know there aren't many hotels in this area so there isn't much to choose from. I don't think the hotel was very perpared to cater to a group of 50 tourists, so the experiences of a small family or couple may be a lot different from the experience we had.
