“Interesting Stay!!!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Hotel staff were great, especially Roddy the manager who couldn't have been more helpful. They even had a whisky nosing competition after dinner!!!! Dinner was excellent, and the chef even came out to meet the guests after dinner, which was a nice touch.

We had a standard double room which was fine, but a wee bit tired looking. The rest of the hotel inside and out looks great, and the open fires make it warm and cosy.

Apparently it is haunted by the black lady, but we never saw her! Maybe next time!!

My colleague and I were driving up to Inverness on business and fancied a quick breakfast. On leaving Inverness heading west, we noticed the signs for Bunchrew House Hotel and popped in for a bit of breakfast. On first impressions, its a fantastic building, pale pink in colour with turrets and on the shore of the loch its just wonderful! We received a warm welcome on arrival, and despite the fact we hadnt called ahead and werent residents, we were sat very quickly at a window side table. I had scrambled eggs on toast, which were amazing! Some of the best I have tasted! My colleague thorougly enjoyed her sausages bacon & toast and a nice pot of tea too! We will return - maybe for a bit longer next time!!

I stayed here by chance. What an amazing place. The hotel looks like a castle out of a fairytale. We had driven up from Edinburgh, and it was nice to arrive somewhere where the service was exceptional, and we felt at home.
And we found out the restaurant was in the Michelin Guide as well - food was exquisite to say the least - and the restaurant catered gladly for vegetarians.
The 'living room' area (common area) was vert cosy with several fires, and a nice place to relax before and after meals.
Wifi worked better in the common areas and was limited in the bedroom (we were in The Turret).
All service was impeccable - reception staff, restaurant staff in the evening and morning - friendly, welcoming, accommodating.
Our room was up several flights of stairs. Good size room, heated well, traditionally decorated which seemed to fit perfectly the them that was in my mind of the fairytale castle;) The bed was a tad small. The bathroom was nice, excellent fluffy towels, but the shower pressure was not very strong at all, and it took a long time for the water to get hot. These were minor things in my mind, which did not detract from the overall experience.
Loved Bunchrew House Hotel and I couldn't recommend it enough.

So many excellent reviews always make me a little sceptical, but Bunchrew seems to deserve every one of them. We hired the hotel for a night for our daughters engagement party and we certainly were not disappointed.

A stunning setting with beautiful rooms, wonderful food and the most amazing, helpful and friendly staff! The hotel was ours from around 2 o'clock on Sat. We had a mulled wine reception where the mince pies were to die for; an early evening supper with a perfectly presented meal for around 32 guests and then a ceilidh into the wee small hours.

The function room was the perfect size for the meal and the table setting wonderfully enhanced by the amazing backdrop of the Beauly Firth through the panoramic window. The reception rooms were all beautifully decorated with Xmas decorations and this made for the most wonderful atmosphere throughout the weekend. Being able to stay at the hotel overnight really made the weekend as the rooms were absolutely delightful with a number of four posters and some more amazing views. But it was the little touches like lighting all of the fires in the rooms for when we arrived that made all the difference.

I can't say enough though to praise or to thank the staff; Roddy, Ann and the team were just brilliant. Throughout the weekend nothing was too difficult (and my daughter had very set ideas about what she wanted) and our happy couple were treated like royalty! To all of the staff at Bunchrew, thank you for making my little princess feel like one for a day.

2 nights at Bunchrew House was an absolute treat. Yes the building is gorgeous, yes the location is fabulous and close enough to Inverness. But the really good bit were every member of staff we met who were friendly, helpful and could not do enough to make us feel special. We were with our children ( teenage) they loved it ( good wifi a bonus) and we met friends with younger kids and they also had a great time. From sampling new cocktails, going shooting and then having our pheasant cooked for dinner, from having an excellent in-room massage (my first time, why haven't I done this before?), this hotel is absolutely exquisite. We were supposed to ski at Cairngorm but too windy, but Inverness provided enough to fill the day. I would come here as a family, a couple, an individual and do as much or as little as I chose to. It is popular for weddings and it's easy to see why. A brilliant find, highly recommended for anyone wanting a really good Scottish hospitality experience. I wish we had another day, but 2 nights excellent and the food is sooo good. Would definitely come back if in the area, still not visited the whisky distilleries, castles etc. Highly recommended!!

Room Tip: Options include 4 poster beds, river views
