The Craigdarroch Inn
Ranked #1 of 5 Foyers B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Stayed for one night on a last minute booking. Don't let your first impressions influence your opinion, once you get past the pot holed drive and the sparce exterior, the views the traditional interior and above all the staff and the food were way above our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. Thank you

The weekend spent at loch ness was one of the best of my life as my boyfriend and I got engaged! The only downside was the accommodation.

We booked through groupon which was all fine. We arrived very late due to a late flight and then driving the hire car the wrong way round the loch (makes you really appreciate the size!). This property is VERY HARD TO FIND, particularly in the dark and coming from the wrong direction. More, and larger, signs would be helpful. We were let in through the pub on the side and shown to our room.

The room was fine. Not brilliant, just fine. Bed was huge (bonus), mattress was lumpy but the view was spectacular! (mind you we had paid an extra £35 for it). I wouldn't say this was 'loch side' particularly as there is approx 1/2 mile between the hotel and the actual banks of the loch.

Breakfast was ok. Staff seemed to be a bit offish with us, not sure who it is that is being so friendly to everyone else! We were particularly disappointed when we mentioned at our pre-booked dinner at the hotel the evening of our engagement (say 2.5 hours in) that we had got engaged that day, and it was as if the server did not care. She didn't even perk up when we bought ourselves champagne and the tradition of free things when you get engaged certainly doesn't apply here! (We're British - its not like we expect much haha).

DO go and visit Loch Ness, I certainly plan to particularly as it will forever be the spot where my husband to be asked me to marry him, whether I would stay at this hotel again... probably not!

Room Tip: Definitely pay the upgrade for the view - it is incredible!

We stayed for one night on 7th November - what a super hotel with stunning views overlooking Loch Ness. The owners Elinor and Martin are very welcoming and helpful - the rooms are spacious and warm - food and service was excellent.
Only regret is that we couldn't stay longer, but we are already planning our return visit!

Changes at hotel include American style diner pub, poor food either microwaved or fried no Scottish feel. Caravan site opposite spoils the views compared to other hotels. Asked for wine they had " red or white" that was the choice. Expensive rates although clean comfortable rooms it is all over rated living on the previous owners, it is sad to see the demise although they can't be blamed for the caravan site. If you've been before expect disappointment as it not any way near 4 star very sad.

Room Tip: Book a different hotel near by plenty to choose and check the caravan site is not visible!

Super inn on the banks of Loch Ness with a superb view. Food and service were perfect. The owners Martin and Eleanor Donnall were a lovely couple. Great fun at the pub quiz night with Mike the barman a real gem of a guy!
Will return.
