4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Although the room was a little dated and in need of a make-over, it was warm and clean. After booking a twin room, we were upgraded to a family room on arrival. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was great and arrived promptly. A thoroughly enjoyable Scottish experience made better by the fact I had a good deal on the room price.

I stayed here recently while walking the Great Glen Way. The was shown to a single room in the annexe behind the hotel. I hate to be critical but for £44 for a single room, I expected something a bit better.

The room really wasn't big enough to swing a cat, there was a portable heater on the floor to heat the whole room but this meant the bathroom was frozen. The holder on the wall holding the hairdryer was hanging off the wall, held in by screws but no wall plugs to hold them in, the same really applied to the plug sockets by the bed. The Tv had no remote and only seemed to have 4 channels, I have no idea what they were apart from Sky News. There also appeared to have no cold water in the sink but lots of hot water. There was no Wifi as the room was too far away from the main building.

Anyway, the positives.

The single bed was comfy enough and I slept ok, the shower was very nice once I got the heat setting correct and it was quiet, which suited me. I think the general opinion on here is that the staff are much better than the hotel and this was true on my visit. They were friendly when I spoke to them and very helpful in the morning for breakfast, which was very nice and set me up for the long walk ahead that day.

The location of the hotel is nice but some of it could do with being knocked down and rebuilt to a more modern standard. A single portable heater for a room in the Scottish Highlands would be a nightmare in winter, thank goodness it wasn't that cold on my visit.

Very friendly staff who were very helpful and made us very welcoming however the hotel itself leaves a lot to be desired. The "highlight" was one of the beds collapsing. We discovered that a number of the slot holders were missing. The staff were very apologetic and when we checked out received a full refund. Overall very dated hotel that needs a lot of investment however quality staff who do their best in very trying circumstances.

Friendly welcome from the staff who could not do enough for you. Rooms a little dated but very comfortable. Restaurant good if a little pricey only complaint is the hand cut chips have never seen a hand more like mccains frozen home fries def not cut from a fresh potato.

This hotel is a good distance outside Inverness, in close proximity to two fairly tacky Loch Ness Monster attractions. It has clean, comfortable rooms-if a bit dated-and is very reasonably priced. The restaurant provides a very nice breakfast as part of the room rate and does basic but very tasty lunches and dinners. There is also a cocktail lounge onsite.

We stayed at this Hotel a week ago, the staff were sooooo very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and nice. The restaurant food for our evening meal was delicious and so was the breakfast. A lovely view and plenty of parking. The gift shops are on site so great for grabbing a few gifts.
