What an amazing meal in an amazing setting. We were lucky enough to be seated in front of the large window overlooking Loch Ness and the Great Glen. As soon as we were seated we were served a selection on innovative amuse Bouche prior to our 5 course menu. There was an amazing mussel served apparently in its shell but... More

The in is very nice with many fine touches. Caroline, the proprietor, is friendly and attentive. The dinner was very good. It was a warm day for Scotland and the room was warm. We sat in the drawing room and had drinks with our friends by a fire before dinner.

Lovely Victorian hotel in the small beautiful town of fort Augustus. Lovet is one of the two hotels in the town. We stayed in two studio rooms that are outside the main hotel building as there are no rooms that accommodates a family of 4 with 2 kids. The rooms are on the smaller side but beds were very comfortable.... More

We stayed here for 1 night but could have stayed for more. The rooms albeit were on the small side, they were very well appointed, comfortable and clean. The view from the window over the Loch and hills certainly made it worth while. The breakfast was excellent with a varied choice to select from. Dinner in the brasserie was again... More

Had a room in the annex. Great space and great wet room. Ate in the brasserie and food and service were excellent. Breakfast was fab and fresh with lots of choice. From check in to check out all staff were welcoming, friendly and efficient. Lots of peaceful places to sit and relax. Thank you all for a relaxing stay.

We recently visited The Lovat for a few days and we loved it. Food was excellent and staff/service was very friendly. We stayed in the studio rooms which was perfect to our needs as we was on a biking holiday which meant we could park our vehicle right outside our room with our bikes in. Lovely little touches such as... More

We stayed here for a 1 night stay in July 2016. It's a fabulous hotel. Received a very warm welcome with lovely tea and scones which was very gratefully received after a long journey. Excellent location. Great hosts. Decor and furnishings are outstanding. Breakfasts are second to none. Highly recommended.

I stayed here with my partner for one night and I wish we'd stayed for more. The hotel is beautiful and we had one of the rooms off to the side. Again this was beautifully decorated. It was clean, comfortable and peaceful. Breakfast was also very nice. I will definitely be back!

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Good quality ingredients and wonderful presentation. Menu not too long so they concentrate on freshness and quality. Good wine list with a fair range of prices. Probably best to book in the summer months as this is by far the best restaurant in Fort Augustus.
