We had dinner at the restaurant and the service is excellent. The waiters and sommelier were friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The food was above average and uses local ingredients. The setting and character of the restaurant however are the most special aspects of the restaurants - old-world and charming. Highly recommended.

Magnificent castle hotel with the loveliest view of Ben Nevis (without all the ugly paraphernalia around Fort William itself detracting from it). Gorgeous inside and very welcoming to non-residents even for coffee and first class cream scones, as well as home made biscuits.Lovely grounds to wander around afterwards.A roaring log fire to enjoy in the grand entrance hall too. Treat... More

The building is exactly as you would imagine a Scottish castle to be, full of character and history. The views are breathtaking making this a very special place. From the moment we arrived until we left the customer service was excellent. They really couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable. However, I think given the price of a stay... More

The atmosphere is romance personified, located within the magnificent and luxurious Inverlochy Castle hotel. Service was superb and wine selection was impressive. The food was excellent, well presented too, but could be better considering the restaurants location and atmosphere. Still, it is definitely worth a visit, especially for a romantic culinary experience.

We had decided to drive from Port Appin and explore Fort William. Took all of 5 minutes to realise that the shops and food offerings were not for us and escaped to Inverlochy Castle where we were greeted cheerfully and had excellent sandwiches and salads from a bar type menu. Took a peek at a couple of rooms and will... More

If you can't stay at the castle, coming for the amazing multi-course dinner is the next best thing. (Or if you are staying here, come for dinner anyway!) Food is fantastic, wine pairings excellent, service exceptional.

The ambiance, the decor, the service, the food...this place is perfect to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, etc. We had a lovely dinner with the wine pairing. It is expensive but worth it.

Inverlochy Castle is a luxurious hotel and restaurant surrounded by beautiful grounds and lakes. While we didn't stay in the main Castle we did enjoy the tasting menu dinner with excellent wine pairings. The John Dory was my favorite among the many delicious plates. Our server was Jule was from Transylvania. He was very sweet and friendly.

We had dinner here on Saturday night and were confronted with a tasting menu. Not my choice, but we went ahead and were very happy. This is an historic hotel and restaurant, and both the building and grounds are beautiful. Pre dinner drinks were served in the living room and outside on the terrace giving you the choice of plush... More
