“Old World Charm”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stayed one night at the Glengarry Castle Hotel in September. The hotel was easy to find and we were whisked quickly through check in. We received a small double room; however, it felt comfortable and the bathroom was ample size. Our highlight was the dinner that night. I had the steak and my wife had the chicken. Both were excellent. We had coffee and after dinner sweets in the library in front of a cozy fire. It was a very memorable experience. The next morning after a great full breakfast we walked down to the loch, visited the on site castle ruins, and toured the grounds. We wished we had booked more nights here! Definitely a great place to stay, in our opinion.

We had another great stay here but ssshhh don't tell everyone or it will get too popular!

The place is old and historic with the old castle in the grounds and the loch which runs as part of the great glen and into Loch Ness, so look out for Nessie. It's a family run business and the service is great, they went out of their way to help us.

A few tips, spend the extra and get a view of the loch. Please dress for dinner you don't have to at all and some people don't but it's a lovely place so why not at least try and look smart ish. It's just my personal opinion but if you want to dress like you have just come off a building site go to a travel lodge. The food is great although not as good as it was when I first started coming here in 2002. But still really good. Have a lovely dinner here then relax in the two sitting rooms afterwards and talk to the other guests, they like you are all to ready to chat so break the ice!

There is free wifi here it seemed good in our room but not brilliant in the sitting room for some reason. I would perhaps bring an electrical extension cable as it's an old building and people seem to have so many electrical gadgets nowadays it may be easier just to bring an extension cable with a few sockets on it.

We would recommend a few places to visit from the hotel. The commando memorial at Spean Bridge, a great view and touching memorial. The gondola to snow goose cafe. Go to the national ice climbing centre in Kinlochleven , it's indoors and all ages and abilities and actually a great fun indoor day out. A drive through Glen Coe go all the way to the viewpoint at the end of Rannoch moor. The famous Eileen Donnan castle seen in many films and adverts. The monarch of the glen tv series has many places you can visit, message me for more details. The is
Isle of skye. Drummnadoicht and the Nessie museums and exhibitions. The hotel is a great base for exploring the area and returning to a lovely hotel for more details message me.

In summary a great place to stay!

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a loch view

We have waited for 5 years to stay at this wonderful hotel in the Scottish highlands and it was worth the wait. We had a beautiful room with a view of the loch & surrounding hills. The hotel is very well run with excellent service, good food and well maintained rooms.It is good value for money and we would highly recommend it

We have stayed here several times and have always been impressed with the Hotel and it's ambience. The staff are all very friendly and most helpful. It is a step back in time to when
things are done properly ! Good company at after dinner chats with fellow guests whilst consuming coffee in the lounge infront of a real log fire.
Food was excellent although we did criticise not having the rich sauces separate, which we are
told will be addressed. Restaurant staff very friendly and efficient showing excellent training.
We will be back

Room Tip: Have a room with either Loch Oich View or over the fields view, Not over the Car Park

Everything that has been written in the other reviews is true, this hotel is one of the best we have stayed in and we will certainly return. From arrival to departure nothing was too much trouble for the staff, particularly in the restaurant. The food was excellent, with a very good menu, both in the evening and for breakfast. It was interesting that quite a few of the guests we spoke to had been coming to this hotel for a number of years, I can understand why.

If you want a peaceful retreat with fantastic views this is the place. The hotel is the quietest place I've stayed even though it was full. We had a wonderful room even though it wasn't one of their special rooms. The food was excellent and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Excellent value for money. Only thirty pounds a night more than we payed in an extremely basic hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

We arrived at this hotel after touring Culloden Battlefield, Fort George and Urquahart Castle. Lots of stairs to get to the room but so worth it. Canopy bed, large writing table and very nice bathroom. The heated towel racks are the best!
The lounge and library face out to Loch Oich with the mountains behind. Just a fantastic view as you wait for the dinner gong which announces the beginning of that service. You are personnaly seated and given personal service throughout the meal. Going to the lounge after for coffee in front of the lit fireplace was a treat.
The staff suggested we go to the Nevis Range-one of the highest ranges in Scotland. Great gondola ride to the mid point, further walk up the range and then hot chocolate with shortbread to warm up again. Great suggestion.
