My husband and I stayed for two nights and the room was very clean and comfortable the food was very good and cooked to order, the service was excellent, and the owners were very friendly and are very knowlegeable about the area.

Our only comment would be was the noise of the toilets/shower as we were in the back room on the ground floor - we did mention this to the owners and they are going to sort them out and change them to ordinary flush toilets soon - then this will make the B&B a more than excellent place for anyone to stay.

My wife and I spent three nights in this B&B with her parents, we took 2 upstairs rooms. Both rooms were spotless and very well kitted out. Bathrooms were excellent with a decent shower in each. Breakfast was delicious and it is worth then taking the extra time to cook all to order - we didn't need lunch on any day after black pud, haggis, bacon, sausage, beans and toast each morning! The owners were always willing to give suggestions for things to do, and there was a good amount of local maps and guides to give extra inspiration. Location perfect for the canal, pubs, shops etc. All reasonably priced as well.

My wife and I stayed here with two friends for 4 nights. Our hosts made us feel very welcome and were very helpful. The rooms and dining area are nicely decorated and very clean. The only points I'm knocking off are for the lack of tv channels and the noisy toilet in one of the rooms - but these are really minor points. The breakfasts were good and they offered to buy something if we didn't like what they had - but there was no need for that. For value for money it's 100%.
Also, Fort Augustus is a great location to tour the Highlands, there's a nice pub nearby and it's very picturesque.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone!

Management response:Responded August 28, 2010

We have taken on-board the guests concerns and during the winter we are planning to replace the 2 saniflow toilets with normal flushing ones.
We have wired the house up for digital TV unfortunately the signal does not get switched on until the 6th October.

We stayed at Abbey Cottage B&B in Fort Augustus for two nights in July and were more than happy with our choice of accomodation. This B&B met all our expectations:

- Great location
- Modern and comfortable rooms
- A tasty breakfast
- Very kind and helpful hosts

Abbey Cottage B&B is situated in the centre of Fort Augustus - shops, restaurants and the Loch Ness Cruises being just a stone's throw away. This beautiful 19th century house has been recently refurbished and the rooms have been decorated with a lot of care and style. We stayed in room no 3, which is the first floor rear double room. It is a spacious and very cosy room with a modern ensuite bathroom. We have added some pictures of our room and the pictures from the B&B's homepage also give a very good impression: www.abbeycottagelochness.co.uk.

Breakfast is served in an improvised breakfast room at the moment until the sun room is finished, which will be the case in only a few weeks time. But the improvised breakfast room is nicely decorated and certainly does the trick. Breakfast was ample and very tasty. We were particularly happy to find two vegetarian options on the menu: a cooked vegetarian breakfast and a fruit platter. Both were first rate.

The owners were ever so helpful and always in for a chat. In our opinion, they offer great service; e.g. we were able to check in a few hours earlier. We feel that energyflash72 should have spoken to them about his/her complaints before writing such a bad review.

We heartily recommend Abbey Cottage B&B and hope to return soon.

What an excellent B&B. Perfectly located for Fort Augustus and the Loch Ness area. The entire cottage is beautifully appointed and luxuriously comfortable. We took three rooms and they were all 110%. The breakfast was amazing and the fruit platter is better than anything I've seen in 5 star hotels around the world. The free wifi was an added bonus. Well done!
