“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We took a chance on booking a "restaurant with rooms" even deciding to stay 3 nights. Our decision was very well rewarded. Extremely comfortable room with great attention to detail and the food was stunning every night, with excellent sensibly priced wines. A warm welcome from Liz and Tony who were most helpful at all times. Our next stay was at Inver Lodge Hotel where the food in the Roux restaurant was excellent but not as good as Grants.
Very good value for money, could charge more if there was a view of the loch!

Room Tip: Recommend the two lodge rooms But & Ben

Had a fabulous meal at Grants in summer 2011 whilst staying at a nearby campsite. Promised ourselves we would return for a 2 night stay, which we duly did this month. The whole experience lived up to our exectations, the wonderfully comfortable room, the welcoming and engaging hosts and the sublime food and wine. Grants has now become our benchmark for fine dining - pity we live 400 mies away but despite this, we will be back! Andrew and Carol.

Booked for 3 nights at Grants after reading reviews on this site!! Well I must say the reviews are spot on! This place is a little gem! The area is beautiful with easy links to Skye and Inverness and all the lovely places that surround these!!
Tony and Liz are so welcoming and make your stay that extra bit special-and as for the food-well my hubby said to Tony-"you're wasted up here-the big city restaurants would kill for your culinary skills"-but Tony & Liz are quite happy in their piece of paradise, and I cant say I blame them!!
We cannot recommend this place more highly and will definitely be back!!

Room Tip: only 4 rooms but all really clean and cosy!!

We have just returned from a 1 night stay at Grants, having added an extra night onto our holiday. We stayed with Tony and Liz several years ago and enjoyed it so much we have always planned to visit again. It was amazing then and it has not changed, Tony and Liz are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the house in a lovely double room with a comfy bed on a dinner bed and breakfast basis. Our meal was amazing, queen scallops in a spicy tomato sauce, topped with mozzarella and home made rolls to die for. Pheasant breast in a rich wine and red currant sauce to follow for our main, then raspberry and white chocolate brioche bread and butter pudding with creme anglais which was just lovely, cheese and biscuits to follow all accompanied with excellent wine, which finished off without doubt the best meal we have had! Breakfast was equally as good with lots of choice for a lighter option or a full Scottish breakfast, also alternatives such as an omelette or poached eggs on toasted muffin with hollandaise sauce topped with cheese! If you appreciate your food and would like a relaxing break Grants is the place to go for excellent quality and value for money. We are are already planning our return visit.

We stayed here for three nights in July and I just wished we had booked a longer stay. The location is excellent. Set in a very small village on the other side of the loch from the main road to Skye, its within short driving distance of many attractions/places to visit. We stayed in the "suite" which was to a good standard and very comfortable but the best part of the stay was the food. I had read the reviews on this site here before I booked and I'm pleased to say, the reviews were accurate. Tony and Liz were the perfect hosts who served dishes of a very high standard. Matched with an excellent wine list, it was a joy dining each evening.
If you are travelling to this part of Scotland, make sure you stay here. You won't be disappointed.

We had been touring Scotland for 15 days and this was our last stop before flyng home . What a good choice ! The first thing we asked for on arrival was a good Gin and Tonic - and we got the best of the whole holiday - so good in fact we had to have another one !! Tony the owner and Chef certainly knows his stuff - possibly due to his previous career on the cruise liners ..
Our room was spotless and beautifully decorated - very good quality linen and lovely touches - like slippers and fluffy bathrobes. The shower room was a bit small but lots of hot water and fine for one night.
We ate in the little conservatory restaurant and the food was as good as the room - very high quality and superbly cooked and presented. Tony's wife was the waitress and hostess and she was lovely too ..
A very good choce - book early to avoid dissappointment -

Room Tip: perhaps upgrade to a superior room for stays of more than one night ( they are larger )

Staying just one night on our trip up to the Isle of Skye my wife and I had the great treat of picking a stopover at GRANTS.
Tony and Liz Taylor are perfect hosts,Tony a star in the kitchen,Liz non fussing attention and welcome completes with very high standard of accomodation.In a location to die for the fact that you get 5 star dining was an unexpected surprise.Everything at Grants is done well and to the highest standard,a real professional act,no hesitation the best place to stay in the west coast of Scotland
