me and my wife had another great stay in the highland hotel, in September last year, I should warn anyone who makes a booking through other sites to make sure of the wording on your booking, I found out I was only booked in for room only and it was quite expensive, I made the mistake of thinking it was...

There is nothing I can fault on this stay, the room was lovely and the staff were excellent. We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel which was fabulous. The hotel is in prime location next to the castle and has lovely views. I would totally recommend this hotel!

Large and "Scottish" style hotel with friendly staff. There is good parking and rooms are comfortable even if the decor is getting distinctly tired. Generally, the hotel looks a but run down with poor plaster and signs of damp. However, it provides a pleasant stay in a good location. Food is more mass catering than gourmet but is perfectly edible.... More

On arriving at the hotel I was shocked at the lack of parking available for staying at the hotel as it is shared by a gym this was very frustrating especially when you have a lot of luggage I feel that this should be brought to your attention when booking,during my stay I actually witnessed two cars being bashed by...

Electrical extensions on the bar area - if this is not a hazard to staff or indeed customers .. Workman tools and bag on... More

My husband and I went here for an overnight and spa day on 2nd February. When we arrived we were greeted by very nice and professional staff. We were quickly checked in. Our room was spacious and clean. Windows were quite old fashioned but what can you expect with such an old beautiful building. Renovations were taking place and many... More

For a large hotel, the service is personal, friendly and attentive. Rooms are large, comfortable and clean. During my stay there was some upgrading/decorating going on in the hotel, but this didn't effect my stay much. All in all, this is a hotel, I will be visiting again.

Stayed here for one night. From the outside it looks impressive being an old school however it does feel a little dated. There was decoration work going on so this may be being addressed in reception but the rooms, whilst very comfortable, did feel a bit old. The bed however was comfortable and the breakfast the following morning was good.... More
