We had a really enjoyable stay at the Drumnadrochit Hotel. As the pictures show, it's not the fanciest of hotels - the accommodation was basic but it was spotlessly clean and warm.
What set this hotel apart from others on our holiday was the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and they went out their way to make sure we had everything we needed during our meal (monster-sized meringues come highly reccommended!) and also when we asked about things to do in the local area. The hotel manager, I think his name was Sean (?) and an Irish lassie were particularly friendly, and really good fun!
The hotel is right next door to the Nessie exhibition and shops which was handy, with the Urquart Castle not far. Free wifi throughout was also a bonus.
