Wife and I stayed here with friends during a whistle stop tour of the highlands. My friends had stayed here previously.
On arrival we were greeted like old friends, huge smiles and a hearty hand shake. Ok the decor would benefit from a spruce up, but look past that and the places is clean and comfortable, with tea and coffee in abundance in the rooms. We arrived on foot with back packs on and this was apparently the norm as its on the Great Glen way.
A quick spruce up, and into the bar to sample home grown beer. Yes the place has its own micro brewery! The Loch Ness brewery brews a range of beers and it would have been rude not to try them.
The food was hale and hearty, just what was needed after a days walking. The hotel is dog friendly and this is apparent by the water bowl and the regular snack purchases.
It is our intention to return soon.
