After our previous visit, we were looking forward to our new year break and Hogmany gala dinner. We were not disappointed. The staff were excellent - no detail was overlooked. They could not have done more to ensure that our stay was the most enjoyable it could be. The highlight was the food - again a very high standard.
Can't wait to return!

Room Tip: The rooms in the annexe are excellent if you have a dog.

My husband and I travelled up to Scotland for the first time at the Lovat Hotel and were very impressed and really welcomed by all the staff, we had a wonderful time. Shaun could not have been more helpful. We will be travelling up there again in February for my husband's 40th and cant wait.

Room Tip: Room 23 looked over the Loch and has a separate office area so a little more room.

In short very impressed with the standard of the hotel and restaurant, which I thought represented excellent value for money. I look forward to returning.

I stayed at the Lovat on business for a week. Straight from arrival there was a warm welcome combined with very efficient service. Rooms are a generous size - spotless with great facilities, and lovely views. I found the food at the restaurant excellent, and a cut above anywhere else I ate in Fort Augustus during the week. Breakfast as well was delicious.

After a soggy drive from Edinburgh, we arrived after dark at the Lovat. We were met by a very welcoming staff and an even more welcoming roaring fire in their comfortable sitting room. The bedrooms are not what I would call plush, but certainly perfectly well outfitted with comfortable beds and good linens. The bathrooms are wonderful by any standards (including a tv you can watch while soaking in the tub!). What the restaurant lacks in ambiance it makes up for with the food - a wonderful menu with choices varying from local dishes to comfort food. There's a nifty little bar for a "wee dram" which you can take into the sitting room to cozy up by the fire after a long day on Loch Ness. I would highly recommend the Lovat for your trip to Loch Ness - it won't disappoint!

We have just stayed for 1 night on the way to the Isle of Skye for a week. I booked after reading reviews on trip advisor and was so glad of our choice. Currently staying in two much more expensive top hotels on Skye so our one night in Lochness was not what we were originally looking forward to. How we were surprised when we got room 6. It is a very large corner room with a large bathroom and very well decorated and for a male couple we always love a super King size bed. Great view’s outside both windows. The staff were super efficient and nothing was too much trouble. We asked for a Long Island Ice tea which wasn’t on the menu but we were given two in one of their drawing rooms before dinner within minutes. First time they had ever made one but delicious none the less. The food was also delicious and we are so glad we choose to eat at the Lovat. If you don’t you are missing out.
The banana Crème brûlée with coconut ice cream was a standout. Currently staying at the Michelin star Kinloch Lodge which is amazing but the Lovat held it’s own. Would highly recommend and price was very reasonable.
