Just back from Highland Weekend with David Urquhart. 3 Nights dinner bed and breakfast.
It will take weeks to divest myself of the extra weight from eating the delicious meals served here. An excellent choice of food and ample portions served by a pleasant staff.
On arrival the coach was met by the assistant manager, a very pleasant young man, who
gave each the key to their room and facilitated quick access to allocated rooms. He even carried my case up. As a single traveller and paid no single room supplement I did not expect too much so I was pleasantly surprised at the room, which was small but looked down over the village square, where Strathpeffer Pipe Band perform each Saturday night. There were minor problems with the room but it was fresh with spotless bedlinen and clean en-suite with a Mira Sport shower.
The only reason I will hesitate about a return visit is the lack of a lounge area. The public area
in Spa Lodge serves as the bar and is very dated and a bit shabby and was not very inviting but if a drink is important the prices are very reasonable.
Anyone who has missed being able to drink water from the tap should visit as this is so soft and very palatable. A nice touch in the dining room is the jug on your table with the delicious water and for those who have felt pressured into buying whilst dining are relieved of the pressure, although you can have a drink from that bar too whilst dining.
Farm fresh eggs are served each morning for breakfast with a very good choice from the full breakfast range,
