We have just had (this evening), simply, one of the best meals we have ever eaten. The welcome from the minute we walked into the brasserie was warm, friendly, inviting and knowledgable. The team providing our experience and meal tonight were truly well versed in their food, beers and food on offer. Their service was attentive, timely, friendly and yet... More

The hotel itself is wonderful; great common rooms and bedrooms. The reception was friendly and helpful. The food is just as good, and I'd recommend the oysters if they are on. We used it as a one-night stopover but would be a great base for a longer stay.

This is a really great hotel on Loch Ness. The staff could not have tried harder to make our stay perfect - and the food was amazing. There is a bistro restaurant - which is excellent - and a fine dining restaurant which was amazing - the chef must have spent hours to prepare the meal - a tasting menu... More

We spent three nights at Lovat and were pleased with every aspect--breakfast and dinner, free tea/coffee in lounge, education in whisky and visas for young staff, cleanliness, wheelchair friendly, location, and extremely hospitable staff). Sean, Glenn and Kaitlin contributed greatly to our experience. We reserved through booking.com far in advance and did not pay 'luxury' rates.

A most comfortable stay at this very welcoming hotel. All family needs were catered for. Staff were extremely helpful and attentive, with nothing too much trouble. The dinner in the brasserie was of excellent quality , as was the breakfast. A lovely log fire with a night cap completed a most memorable stay. Plenty of local attractions and amenities within...

Excellent service and staff were very attentive. We were greeted with complementary coffee and as we left the hotel we were given home made biscuits to have on the rest of the journey. The room was very comfortable. It was very quiet which also ensured a good night's sleep. Brilliant.

Great location within a short walking distance of the town and the Caledonian Canal. Really comfortable room and first class service. Food in both restaurants is excellent but the five course tasting menu must be the highlight of any trip. How refreshing to have a hotel management that really cares about making your stay a pleasure and accommodating your personal... More

The main building has real character with a grand wood-panelled reception area and a couple of nice sitting rooms with fireplaces (which were lit on a cool and wet September afternoon whilst I enjoyed afternoon tea). However, the room I had booked was not in this building but in an annexe where the rooms can be best described as glorified... More

One of the most amazing hotels we have ever stayed in. The location of the hotel is gorgeous - we had a beautiful view of loch ness and were close to the little shopping area and boat ride docks. We received excellent customer service from the hotel staff and restaurant staff. The food there is delicious - with some vegetarian... More
