“Wonderful Hotel”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We recently stayed for 1 night on a Saturday night. What a fantastic stay we had.
Our room was very spacious,very comfortable and very clean.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal in the restaurant,the food was superb,the service from the staff was second to none.Every member of staff was very welcoming and made our stay.
Breakfast was also great.The whole experience was wonderful!!
We can't wait to go back for another visit.Which hopefully will be very soon.Can't recommend this hotel,manager and staff highly enough.

I know I payed more than the average but it was worth it for the fantastic views over the bay at sunset (you should leave the table and go outside though one of the glass doors - many do)

Service was easy and attentive, and not intrusive. I was allowed to eat in peace with no sense of any urgency. I thought I spied Albert Roux at a far table but must have been mistaken

I didn't stay having booked at a local B&B. They welcomed me back (and I probably will return!)

Having read the previous reports my expectations for the hotel were extremely high and have to say I wasn't disappointed. As you drive up the hill to the hotel you realise you are about to enter a very special place indeed. The views were awesome, from Suilven in the backdrop to the harbour and Atlantic beyond the natural beauty and location were stunning. The hotel itself was friendly and welcoming with a real hunting lodge feel. Our dinner in Chez Roux was everything I hoped it would be, from the appetizer and G&T in the bar to choices on the menu a 10/10. We retired to the lounge where the fire was glowing and ordered a Jura to soak up the food and atmosphere! A great evening, however, I may be a little picky but do prefer to have my Whiskey in a crystal glass, maybe next visit!

We travelled with another couple. Some hotels,B&B and guest houses had been less than expected, most had exceeded our expectations. On this trip Inver Lodge was our 7th hotel/B&B /guesthouse stay
Inver lodge was by far the best.
Rooms were spacious and well appointed each having a view.
The lobby and guest areas were ideal for lounging and reading books provided by the hotel.it had rained ,we had wet shoes ,a staff member stoked up a fire to dry our shoes.
The Restuarant staff were exceptional as were the meals. It makes a real difference having well trained staff who remember the guests and their likes.
The whole experience was terrific especially as we only chose this hotel because we couldn't get in to another in another town . Having visited that town and that hotel we were extremely happy with this choice.
Of all things remembered , it was the staff. No one person but all staff we dealt that made our stay very memorable.
We should have stayed longer .
Couldn't fault this hotel.

Spent the evenings of 27th and 28th July at the Inver Lodge Hotel. All the staff were excellent, looking after you at all times without being overbearing. The décor and comfort of the hotel superb. Food quality first class. Views from the rooms stunning. Would we go back.....most definitely.

We dropped in for a bar lunch a little nervous that with the Roux involvement the prices might be a little steep for us, but we needn't have worried. The prices for the bar meals were on a par with others in the area, the menu had something for everyone, and the quality was superb. Truly delicious. Even the tea and coffee were notably generous and good.The bar was more or less empty, which somewhat affected the atmosphere, but undeservedly so in our opinion.

My wife and I stopped overnight in July 2013. The hotel from the outside is unattractive and totally lacking in character. Inside, however, it is a different story. Our bedroom was simply magnificient and we also saw the Iolaire Suite which was truly incredible [as was the price!]. The only drawback to our room was the fact that instead of a safe deposit facility in the room the guest is asked to put valuables in a plastic bag and take them to Reception – which seems very outdated for a hotel of this quality and hardly convenient.

The food at dinner was lovely and the service was excellent.

On checking out I queried a ‘discretionary service charge’ of £23 which had not previously been mentioned but had been added to my bill. The hotel offered to remove it, but I left it on the assumption it would go to the staff as a gratuity, only to subsequently find that I was additionally being invited to add a gratuity to the credit card payment. It reinforced my view that in future I will put cash in the hands of those who have provided outstanding service. In fairness to the hotel they refunded the service charge immediately and without argument.

I would without hesitation recommend Inver Lodge. It has a lovely setting with glorious views and both breakfast and dinner are first rate.

Thank you for your review of your recent stay at Inver Lodge and I am delighted to read how much you enjoyed the food and service.
I will certainly pass your comment on regarding the possibility of an in-room safe.
Regarding the service charge, it does go to the staff, the reason that there is a gratuity facility on the credit card slip is that many guests request to leave more than the 10% added and this is where they can add more at the time of check-out. I hope that we can welcome you back to the hotel before too long. Kind regards, Nicholas Gorton
