“Highland Heritage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

A Highland Heritage coach tour from Northampton proved to be well worth the money we paid for it. The coaches were comfortable, the drivers excellent and the excursions very well chosen. The Hotel was very good. The Manager welcomed us and saw us off and was extremely courtious and saw immediately to a small complaint I had about the room. The staff is made up mainly of eastern Europeans who are all smiles and ready to help in any way they can. The food is varied and well cooked. My main concern was that there is no mobile phone signal inside the hotel and one has to go outside the hotel to use the mobile phone. Wifi is only available in the snooker room and not in the rooms. One must also come to the Dalmally equipped with insect repellant because tiny insects they call "midges" eat one alive if you are not prepared when you go outside.

Room Tip: A Premium Room would be well advised.

An amazing experience. Excellent food, varied, plentiful and delicious. As a first time haggis eater I found it very enjoyable. Room was comfortable and clean. The evening entertainment, especially the comedian and the Home Landers was brilliant, we laughed until our tummy hurt. The staff were cheerful, friendly, courteous and professional. The thoughtful touches were good, ie a pot plant when we reached our home destination plus a phone call the following day checking we had reached home safely. Not many companies do that!! The organisation was brilliant and went like clockwork. Thanks to Patrick for his humour and safe driving.

Having travelled with Highland Heritage several times previously, this was our first stay at the Dalmally.
We had a Five Day break from the 14th./ 19th. of April Inclusive. The Company now operates a 'Feeder Coach' system, in this instance Skills Coaches of Nottingham provide the transport from Derby to T Bay Services in Westmoreland. I must say how impressed I was with the new system's overall efficiency, comfort, and driver / traveller relationship. Our Ten Hour journey from Hucknall to Scotland, was an absolutely enjoyable experience, with several convenience stops en- route.
Upon arrival at the Dalmally, we were greeted by the Manager, and speedily processed directly to our beautiful warm and spacious rooms, containing all the modern facilities.
The meal package was Breakfast and Evening Meal, each consisting of Three variable courses, all of which were well cooked, and presented with speed and efficiency. In room tea / Coffee making facilities are provided.
Standards throughout the hotel were impeccable at all levels / times, and the nightly entertainment which catered for all tastes, was brilliant.
The pre selective daily Coach tours were absolutely superb, visiting Edinburgh, Oban, Loch Ness, Fort William, Fort Augustus, Glen Coe, Ben Nevis, The Forth Bridge, and many more places of interest, all with adequate leisure time.
Throughout the holiday the staff were Superb, so obliging and always very courteous and so helpful.
My only regret was not reserving an eight day holiday, as the experience proved to be so very much worthwhile, and totally good value overall !.
To conclude, we thoroughly enjoyed our well earned break, and we wont hesitate to repeat such, and will certainly recommend our experience to everyone !.

Room Tip: .. I strongly advise potential travellers to reserve a Premier Room overlooking the gardens. As ther...

Our first trip with Highland Heritage but it most certainly won't be our last. My husband and I booked the Bargain Spring Break at only £150 per person which included all coach travel, 4 nights in a beautiful room, breakfast and 4 course dinner with coffee in the lounge afterwards with evening entertainment on all nights, and trips on 3 of the 4 days (4th day optional trip). It was excellent, Ian Cleaver, the MD of Highland Heritage, who you can meet personally, certainly knows about Scottish Hospitality, you are welcomed to the hotel by the hotel manager, Michael who makes the whole process of checking in totally painless by giving you your hotel room number while you are still on the coach and after a walk along a red carpet into the hotel, which is warm and cosy, by the time you get to your room the key is already in the door and your luggage waiting. Our room was a premiere room and had lots of little extras, fluffy bath robes, extra towels, extra pillows and cushions and even a bowl of fruit and plant on the windowsill. The food was lovely, no breakfast buffet here, your breakfast served to your table with fresh hot porridge, kippers or full english, whatever you could want. Enough tea in the pot for loads of cups and as much toast and marmalade as you can eat. The Highland Night was a real treat, with Haggis and Aberdeen Angus on the menu, all served on hot plates with the most amazing efficiency by the hotel staff - certainly no stinting on the quality of the food it was all excellent. I certainly wasn't the only one appreciating it by the look of all the empty plates in the dining room! The trips were also excellent in every way, the coaches warm and comfortable and the drivers fun and knowledgeable, a special mention to the Highland Concert which is unmissable, with Mr Cleaver "killing" his haggis in true Robbie Burns style, all great fun. Thank you HH staff and Mr C, we are really looking forward to another trip with Highland Heritage.

We started off from my brothers house in deep snow we had to walk to the taxi thinking we wouldn't be going. Eventually we got on the coach after a delay of 30mins which we thought was very good as the weather was awful. We arrived at Tebay Services and the transition from the feeder coach to the Heritage one was very smooth. Our coach driver Patrick was very informative and made the trip interesting he also was very good at explaining all that would be happening. We arrived at the hotel greeted on the coach by the manager Michael. The hotel was lovely a lift to the second floor made it easy as my husband has problems walking. The room was very clean with robes, hair dryer, tea coffee and biscuits. The food was very good I tried all sorts and loved the Haggis (must be my Scottish roots). The entertainment was good but we were to tired some times to stay up. The trips were good we enjoyed the Famous Grouse but thats because we like it, ha ha . We had one slip up with people who didn't turn up to get the coach where we were told to. The coach driver was very patient even after the office told him to return, he went round again and they were so lucky that he did. I imagine a taxi back would have cost them in excess of £80. I was a bit annoyed as we were going to the gift shop which was closed when we got back, we were an hour late. We found the whole experience lovely everything ran like clockwork, all the staff at the hotel worked very hard. Some moaned about the hand gel but as I pointed out. I would rather do that than become ill, it's no problem really. We both came home with coughs and colds but maybe thats the price you pay for being on a coach. I do wish some people would cough and sneeze into a hankie though! We will do another trip with Highland Heritage.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor which was fine as there is a good lift.
