Reviewed October 5, 2010

We stayed at Letterfinlay once again this year. As was the case with our stay last year the hotel was welcoming, staff friendly and helpful, the food was wonderful and the location just speaks for itself. Our room was just lovely and spotless!! Obviously newly refurbished to a very high standard. We just love it here and will most definitely be back.

My wife and I stayed one night here one night. We are very glad that we did.

The hotel and rooms are very homely and comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. Our room had been newly and tastefully redecorated.

We ate in the restaurant and had a superb meal, as good as any, anywhere.

Have just travelled back from the Highlands where I stayed for a weekend in Letterfinlay Hotel. I couldn't recomend it highly enough, a real home from home. The situation of the hotel is beautiful and the walk along the private beach perfect to blow the cobwebs away after the journey there.
The room was immaculate and spacious, the bathroom was enormous with white fluffy towels and good quality bath products (a bonus in a three star hotel)
The staff were great, particularly Samantha, the assistant manageress, who was always on the go and the Hotel owner Ian, who was very welcoming went out of his way to make sure we had a great weekend. One of our party took ill and the kitchen porter was sent off to buy her medication, certainly above and beyond the call of duty!
The meal in the restaurant was again way better than we expected and the Monkfish special was outstanding as was the view of the Loch from the Osprey Deck.
This is certainly a hotel I'd reccomend and I have five friends going there next week, hope they enjoy it as much as we did.

Stayed with friends on way to Cairngorms the location was fantastic on the side of Loch Lochy the hotel was good but it could have done with a little updating i.e. the bathroom pink toilet and wash basin and white shower. The food in the restaurant was good but breakfast could have been better no fruit only cereals and yoghurt.

Thank you for your review of our hotel and we agree that the pink suit in our standard room is well out of date ! we intend to re-fit the room in november and bring it up to date as we have done with most of the other rooms ! you can view the pics on our website (check out the Lochy suit ). Our breakfast at the hotel is great and offers much more than you have listed , Fresh fruit juice , a good selection of cereals, Porridge & honey , Hot croissants , The Full Scottish ,Fresh smoked haddock & Egg or Smoked salmon & scrambled egg ! not bad for a three star hotel we would also have provided you with some fruit if you had requested it as we aim to please all of our guests . We look forward to your return visit and we promise that the pink suit will be gone

Kind regards Ian

We stopped for just one night - in hindsight we should have stayed longer. The rooms were very spacious - the bathroom was enormous - decor a nice balance of contemporary and period. Restaurant was very good with attentive staff. The magical part is a short walk through the gardens to the private beach on the side of the Loch. I could skim stones here for days.
I left some things behind (packing with small children "helping") and after a phone call they were promptly posted back to my home. Great service.

If we're anywhere near again we'll be back.

Wonderful hotel in an enchanting location! The rooms were spacious and clean (we stayed in a superior double). The hotel staff were excellent and helpful, and the food was delicious! Thoroughly enjoyed my latte out on the decking enjoying the view! Loch Lochy was beautiful and the hotel was conveniently located for visiting Fort Augustus.
Excellent hotel, will certainly visit again.
