Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Lovely little B&B next to the locks. We stayed for 3 nights in September and especially appreciated the use of the conservatory which has a nice view of the river and the hills, where we spent the evenings over a glass of wine.
Great service, rooms and breakfast.

Room Tip: All 3 rooms are on the ground floor, newly decorated.

Were recommended this b&b by a local competitor, and we couldn't have been happier! Lovely room with some great attention to detail, excellent bed, and a great room overlooking the river for breakfast! Thank you for sending my left behind items Claire, and so quickly! I'd recommend this place to anybody. Great value too.

My husband and i stayed at the Holt for 2 nights. Wished that it could of been more. Bob and Monica are so friendly and helpful. It is well situated, having the Caledonia canal with its locks at the front of the property and the river Oich to the rear.
Loch Ness is a minute walk away, where you can take a boat trip or just enjoy the beautiful view.
Our stay was so quiet and peaceful. We had the best 2 nights sleep in ages. Bed so comfy. The breakfast is fantastic and plenty of it. It sets you up for the rest of the day. The view of the river Oich while eating makes it extra special.
Its a good central position for exploring the beautiful surrounding area.
We highly recommend this B&B.

We stayed at this B&B for 2 nights and we loved it. Monika and Bob made us very welcome and we soon felt relaxed and 'at home'. The Holt is set back a little from the canal so you are not disturbed by the canal users. We had a fabulous view of the river and I spent quite some time watching an eagle, which was superb. The breakfast was terrific and plenty of it to keep you going for quite some time. Our car was parked in the driveway off the road, which was an extra bonus. We were right in the centre of things in Fort Augustus. There are a number of places to eat, but a word of warning has to be said here....do NOT even think about dining at The Lock Inn, it was without doubt the worst meal of my life....you have been warned.
The Holt was reasonably priced at £25 pppn which was well worth the money. There is also access to WiFi too. I can without any hesitation recommend this lovely little gem of a place! A very friendly place indeed!
