Visited this hotel for a lunchtime meal on Saturday with a friend and were seated in the lounge bar. I ordered battered haddock and this huge brilliantly cooked fish arrived with so many tasty additions that I was unable do it justice. For not much more than my local chip shop I felt I just had to write this review... More

We always feel like we are going home whenever we visit the Learney. The rooms are large and airy, the beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are well equipped. We have occupied various rooms over the years but our favourite is room 2 with the four poster bed. The bar is welcoming with lots of friendly faces and the... More

Recently enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Learney hotel. Booked a 65th wedding anniversary lunch for 4 generations and everyone was very happy with their meal. The sticky toffee pudding and the cheesecake were both superb. We were given a room to ourselves complete with a box of toys for the children. Service was excellent and the staff helpful and...

This is the nearest eatery for us when we stay in the Highlands, and we eat there once or twice on each visit. One of the bars is set up to dine in, and there is a varied menu choice usually with a specials board. Last night we had starters, two shared an onion bhajee salad that did not go... More

Had a meal on Friday night and was not impressed. Two had fish and chips the portion of the fish was very small and was over cooked. The steak pie had about 3 bits of meat in it. The fourth person in our party enjoyed his meal. The best part of the meal was the real chips. One of our... More

I really enjoyed my stay, friendly staff and characterful surroundings! Sideboard in the hall at the door and shagpile carpet upstairs. New bathrooms though, and a quiet night's sleep even though the bed was a wee bitty hard.

Was here for lunch, opted for the fish and chips. Served on what seemed a small plate for the portion meaning that the fish was served on top of the chips. This of course meant that the fat from the fish drained onto the chips. Had the plates been warmed this might not have been such an issue. The peas... More
