We really enjoyed our stay and wished we had stayed two nights. The hotel was great - nice location on the Loch. The food was excellent both dinner and breakfast. Everything was just perfect. Thank you.

We booked this as a last minute get away for 2 adults and 2 children (7 & 12 years). To be honest I wasnt really expecting too much as it was only £150 for 2 nights B&B for us all. To get to the hotel there is only one way in and one way out and its a very windy...

What an absolutely fantastic stay. The scenery is spectacular! On arrival at the hotel we were quickly checked in to room 112. We were delighted with the size of the room as we had our Labrador with us too. The bed was really comfortable and loved having the seating area for drinks and the flat screen tv. The room had...

Every member of staff could not have been more helpful.Any request was met with a can do will do approach. The food was of a good standard but pricey as were the drinks. Soft drinks were well over the 2 pounds price range and I feel this takes the edge off the stay.

Beautiful scenery with great views from the hotel. Need to concentrate on the road between A9 and hotel, especially in the dark, but worth it when you get there. Staff friendly and food was very good.

The menu has changed in the restaurant and is more like pub grub than restaurant dining. We have stayed a few times and were disappointed this time. The rooms are comfortable but a bit tired decorative wise. The location on the loch is fantastic if you want a peaceful, quiet break.

Stayed here for one night last weekend for my husband's 50th. I had mentioned this on my booking request, and the staff had thoughtfully left wine, chocolates and a card in our room. Lovely old hotel in a stunning location. We arrived on a dark and very wet afternoon, but woke up to most beautiful view overlooking the loch and...
