Letterfinlay Lodge Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Spean Bridge
Reviewed July 10, 2014

One of the nicest hotels that we have ever stayed in. Large rooms. Ours had a marvellous Art Deco version of the famous Edwardian bath. Wooden panelling. Attentive charming staff, rooms serviced meticulously. Excellent Highland breakfasts. Delightful views with a lovely decked area overlooking the Loch. Lots to see and do in the neighbourhood. Dinner category 2a. Rather irritating £5-95 etc. on the menu. Why not let your yea be a yea and say £6-00? Hope they keep the old baths. Definitely NOT for the hotel chain brigade
but if you like old fashioned comfort and service then this is the definitely the hotel for you.

My husband and I and two other couples stayed here for one night after the first day of walking the Great Glen Way. Letterfinlay Lodge is located in the most amazing setting with the best views of any accommodation we had during our journey along the Lochs in the Great Glen. We were fortunate to arrive on a lovely sunny afternoon and having a beer on the deck in the late afternoon was stunning. Dinner and breakfast were both very good and all staff were friendly and helpful. We were extremely grateful that a staff member was able to organise a taxi to pick us up in the morning and drop us off at Gairlochy to start day 2 or our Great Glen Walk. Our room was exceptionally spacious, clean and comfortable. Do not expect five star luxury accommodation because that is not what you are paying for. However I believe we received very good value for money and we really enjoyed our nights stay in this lovely scenic spot.

What a great location for a hotel, stunning views over the loch and a great base to tour the area from. The staff were very friendly and provided great service, the food was great and good value. The only negative thing I could say is that the rooms could do with a lick of paint, but there are signs that a refurbishment programme is already under way. I would recommend the letterfinlay lodge to anyone for either a few nights stay or simply a meal overlooking the loch.

Four of us ate at Letterfinlay last night. The food was superb.....cooked to perfection....presented beautifully ......delivered to the table in good time....and excellent value for money. The two young ladies waiting on table were a delight.....nothing was too much trouble. They showed an interest in where we were from etc. and also had a laugh with us whilst at the same time knowing when to stand back and leave us to our meal......most impressive. Two of us live locally and will definitely be back and will recommend....it makes a change to find somewhere that is good and doesn't "rip you off". Keep up the good work!

We got upgraded to a loch view room by the hotel on our easy breaks anniversary booking and although compact, we loved the modern room.
The food was amazing! The views were stunning and we were blessed with lovely sunshine, enjoying drinks on the decking overlooking the loch.
Overall, we had 2 wonderful days and the staff were exceptional! So friendly and helpful, a credit to the hotel!

After a breathtaking boat trip on Loch Lochy were we saw two ospreys flying above us, we arrived at Letterfinlay Lodge Hotel where we enjoyed the most amazing burger EVER! This hotel is perfect for a 'get away from it all' experience. The views from the hotel are simply breathtaking. We had a truly wonderful stay there and could not fault it in any way. Rooms, staff, service, cleanliness and food all first class. We will be back! Thank you so much!

Thank you for your great review and all our staff really appreciate your feedback. It was amazing that the Osprey appeared during your boat trip and circled overhead allowing you to get some great pictures, perhaps next time you'll witness them taking a trout from the loch, i have witnessed this myself and it's a fantastic sight to see!
Kind regards.

Just had another great stay at Letterfinlay Lodge Hotel. The weather was kind to us thankfully and we even managed a boat trip out onto loch Lochy in sunshine and spotted the two Ospreys which nest nearby. Having seen a majestic stag close enough to touch earlier in the day we felt really lucky!
On our return we had one of the best steak burger platters ever! everything was homemade from scratch and tasted delicious. Thanks Letterfinlay and can we please have the same weather on our next trip!

Room Tip: slept in most rooms and they're all nice.

Thank you for such a positive review and i have to agree with you regarding the Letterfinlay Sirloin Burger, it's the best i've ever tasted too! The Osprey has been making a regular appearance and we are glad you are able to experience your first siting at our hotel, they are truly magnificent birds.
