We came across Loch Ness Inn by accident and, as we didn't have a reservation, thought we would not be able to eat there. Thankfully the staff found a table and I have to say the food was the best I had in a while. Guinnea fowl with season vegetables were a delight. My friend had the fish and chips and the fish was fresh in a lovely beer batter.

Staff were excellent, food excellent and I hope they achieve the Michelin star because they deserve it.

Had a couple nights summer break at this hotel. Came all the way from NZ and we weren't disappointed!! Staff were always on hand and very friendly and approachable.

The rooms are clean and modern. Fabulous power shower and bathroom. Bedroom area decent size, comfy bed, with all the tea/coffee/water facility you need and good quality. Rooms are cosy, but windows easily opened if summertime.

The food and drink is almost the best part! The dinner menu showcases almost all great Scottish produce and at a reasonable price!! The meals I had both nights were of top class standard and taste, but were half the price I would have expected to pay. Wide range of wine and beer available also. Slight wait in between courses, but we found that welcome as you need a break between the generous portions and its such a nice atmosphere, its hardly a bother.

The breakfast has a good range of light and cooked variants and is perfect to start your day. Quicker service in the morning and we found it very quiet in the dining area both mornings. Also breakfast is served until 10am, which some hotels don't, and on holiday you like a lie-in, so this was a great plus.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit the Loch Ness area!!! Its amazing for the price you pay! Value for money, great service, great rooms and amazing food!

Book it, stay and enjoy !

This place is a little gem , 2 minutes from the shores of Loch Ness. The service was impeccable, always a smile, always professional, nothing was too much trouble.

Our room was lovely, fresh decor, clean and tidy. Yes there wasn't a wardrobe, just a small hanging rail, but it is an Inn, and for a couple of nights that's fine.

The food is excellent, I had "prawns" as a starter, that were really 4 of the finest langoustine I've ever eaten. I really could fill a couple of pages on how good the food is.

The girls that work the front of house make this a really special place that we'll be returning to soon.

We had an incredible Easter Dinner at the Loch Ness Inn. The food was wonderful - very flavorful and there were a lot of great choices on the menu. From the appetizer to the dessert, we thoroughly enjoyed everything! Most of the ingredients are fresh and local which made it that much better. We had the skink for an appetizer and then my husband had the fish & chips and I had the lamb and then we shared sticky toffee pudding for dessert - it was all excellent and I highly recommend everything. They also had local ales which were fun to try.

It was a bit busy that night so we were glad that we called ahead to make a reservation - not a bad idea if you're heading that way and want to make sure you get a seat.

We stayed one night on our way to Ullapool. We read about this place on the Applecross inn website ..it's a sister hotel. Our room was clean, comfy and warm. Liked the tartan carpet. Our evening meal was excellent. There was a little wait ...which we didn't mind ...as the lamb was cooked to order. Excellent main course and puddings.
