I have to concur with several of the other reviews regarding this establishment in terms of the food, rooms and service. Like others have mentioned, staying at this restaurant with rooms was to be one of the highlights of our highland tour. However, it turned out to be the most disppointing. In particular the quality, presentation and flavour of the... More

Our whole trip to Scotland was based around when we could book this restaurant with rooms. We were driving the North Coast 500 route and arranged all our stops around this one recommended by the tourist board venue! We were really looking forward to it and were hoping it was going to be the highlight of our tour, we love... More

We have been trying to stay and eat here for ten years. The Gods and diaries have conspired against us, but finally, in April 2016 we made it. It was a flying visit, made possible by them having a Saturday night available as a single night booking rather than their usual two night policy. We stayed in the Byre- beautifully... More

We recently had a meal at the Albannach after a long time wanting to try it. The meal itself was a bit mixed...on the whole the meal was lovely, the venison was over cooked but all the other courses were lovely. Our main criticism was the customer service. After pouring our first glass of tap water and wine, these were... More

We had the four poster room which we found really comfortable and relaxing. The rest of the hotel is basically a snug lounge, a conservatory and a the dining room. The evening is taken up really by the dining experience as drinks and canapes are served 7-7.30 ish in the conservatory followed by dinner from 8pm and that takes you... More

Having read many fantastic reviews, my partner and I were very much looking forward to our stay at The Albannach and, unfortunately, we were bitterly disappointed. We stayed in the Loft Suite – a nice room but with some mould in the shower, caps falling off in the bathtub and a used tissue down the side of the bed. The... More

...so if like us you were coming from a grand country house hotel you had to adjust your expectations. If you know you are coming to a restaurant where you can spend the night then you will be fine. The atmosphere is friendly, informal and personal. The rooms, which range from the ancient (four poster and ancient original fireplace) to... More

Myself and my husband visited this hotel after our wedding for a relaxing weekend. We chose The Albannach as we knew we would "want for nothing" in a unique setting. As always we loved the food, service and general hospitality. It was just what we wanted and expected. Many thanks to all for making our weekend so special.

To start a review of this extraordinary establishment is the hardest task due to the extremely large numbers of superlatives required in its description . Without kids ( now grown up) , and with a renewed sense of adventure , my wife and I stayed here over New Year 2016 for Hogmanay , 3 nights 30th to 1st January .... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights in the Byre Suite at this hotel. It had its own outside hot tub which was lovely. The suite was very comfortable with all you could ask for. The meals from breakfast to afternoon tea and then the 6 course dinner were all amazing. Very friendly staff. Loved every minute of our stay.
