What a charming Hotel! The location is fantastic, the staff are very friendly and the quality of the Hotel is very good.

We arrived late (11ish) to the Hotel after a 4 hour drive from Edinburgh. We were very relieved to see a lovely welcoming glow coming from the dining / bar area. We relaxed over a few glasses of vino in comfortable surroundings before hitting the hay. And the hay turned out to be very plush...Very comfortable bed, good amenities and brand new ensuite bathroom. Small touches like complimentary sparkling water and large bottles of quality soap make a big difference for me!

As for the breakfast...This set us up for the day in good style. As good a breakfast I have had in a long time.

And the cream on the cake, the complimentary love heart sweeties in the reception. Who doesn't LOVE them?

A great place to stay, friendly staff that would do anything to make your stay more pleasant. Lovely hotel with log fires and an intimate dining room, very attentive waitresses and attention to detail. Even heart shaped sweets at reception!!
A bit expensive but if you can afford it, go for it!!

My partner and l stayed for the weekend at this hotel for our first time in Loch Ness. From the moment we entered the hotel we were made to feel very welcome and at ease. We stayed in a newly built selfcontained room which was lovely as you had your own parking space outside your door, underfloor heating, and good sized wetroom/bathroom. The service was great, the staff were very friendly and approachable, the food fantasic and the bar woman made a fab cocktail!! The location is another plus point for this hotel, boat tours of the Loch are just minutes away. Would highly reccomended this hotel to anyone and will definately be back in the summer.

We spent a lovely relaxing weekend at The Lovat this month. We were given a room upgrade on our arrival, the room was warm and extremely comfortable, with every need catered for. It was difficult to drag ourselves out to explore the area, but in spite of the winter weather we enjoyed some nice walks around Fort Augustus and down Glen Affric, returning in the evenings to enjoy a shower or a bath in the luxury bathroom, followed by the welcoming fires in the lounge and the dining room and two really excellent meals. The croissant bread and butter pudding was a personal favourite which I would recommend leaving some room for! The staff were friendly, helpful, and professional - just the right balance, so we felt right at home.

I would thoroughly recommend The Lovat, and hope it won't be too long before we can return. I'll be keeping my eye on the special offers on the website to look for another good value offer.

This was the 3rd time we have stayed at The Lovat and each time just get's better and better. You feel right at home from the moment you walk in the door until the time you leave.
The staff can't do enough for you throughout your stay. The food is always top notch and served with a smile.
Why this hotel isn't a 4* hotel is a mystery to me? I have stayed in many 4* hotels over the years and many of them don't come near to the quality and service you get at The Lovat.
It certainly won't be long before we return.....Thanks again for our lovely stay.
