I stayed here just for one night passing through on business. The position is good, just off the main road before entering Fort Augustus from the north. There are lovely walks accessible safely on the canal, river and forest. My room was small but nicely furnished - the bed was really comfortable. The only downside was the bathroom, it had... More

An older "family hotel" outside Fort Augustus. Staff were great. Room was large but just OK. Nice drawing room with views over parts of Loch Ness (sort of) and fire going. Didn't eat dinner in the hotel, but breakfast was good, if fairly standard in style. Coffee was lame. Note that this hotel is a 5-8 min drive outside Fort... More

Friendly welcome to the hotel. Booked a family room for the 3 of us. Was a main room with a smaller room off it, both rooms small but served our purpose. The hotel room was dated and in need of updating but was clean and beds were really comfy!! The lounge area was lovely, decorated well and we spent a... More

I had booked the Inch hotel for its location close to Loch Ness. It was in fact further than I thought but still had a view from the lounge down to the loch. Nice welcoming staff, comfortable bar and lounge to relax in. As my wife had a bad cold the staff made her a great hot toddie which really... More

We loved this hotel, charming in its quirkiness, plaid carpets, deer heads, creaky floors! We had requested and received a Loch view room. The weather was perfect when we visited so the views were amazing, sunny and clear. We decided to try in house restaurant for dinner and were very pleased. Scottish angus steak and chicken were both delicious and... More

During our travels around Scotland was recommended to us (Sheila and Allan) restaurant of the hotel. We were here only once, but if we lived closer, so certainly not the last. The hotel is located on a very quiet place. Of several course meal was served perfectly. The food was delicious. Staff very attentive and responsive.

We had booked our room for August 10th three months in advanced. Before that, we had looked to many other places but decided to stay here because it looked great.

In the busiest time of the year, I found the Inch Hotel. Great and very helpful staff- brilliant location- great value- good food and what's not to like- OK maybe the bathrooms are a bit small, at least mine was. But I was up very early and was brought tea and toast some 40 mins before breakfast- that's what I... More

Stayed at the Inch Hotel with family (and dog). The location could not be more perfect with a loch view over Loch Ness and stunning countryside. The hotel itself is a old hunting lodge and keeps it's old world charm and appeal. The rooms we had were perfect - a superior double and family room. The staff cannot be faulted... More

If it was not for the food this would have been a disaster! We were given room Loch Duich it's above the kitchen, we listened too their music and to them clearing up after dinner had finished. Luckily it finished at 11pm and started again at about 7am.
