We enjoyed a short 2 night stay at the 'Boat' (30th April-2nd May 2013). Check-in staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Room was large with nice furniture and comfortable armchairs and bed was large and very comfortable, tea and coffee was also available in room, as were hairdryer and ironing facilities if required. We booked dinner in the restaurant on first night and were not disappointed, the food was absolutely superb and service was excellent and staff very attentive. Drinks in the well stocked and reasonably priced bar was a welcome diversion before turning in for the night. After a great nights sleep, we headed for breakfast and again were not disappointed with loads of choice, fresh fruit, cereals, croissants, pastries, full cooked breakfast, various types of eggs, salmon, kippers, breads and toast etc. Did not have dinner on second night as we headed to Inverness and Loch Ness for the day and ate out. Checked out after breakfast on day of departure but will definitely be back for another stay.
