After struggling to find somewhere nice to eat around the Beauly area, we decided to try the Lovat. Service is slow and we had to go looking for someone to serve us and the menu looked OK but not too extensive, though a little pricey. The pork loins I had were over cooked and dry and the black pudding was... More

Nice hotel and great value for money. Staff are very helpful and the food is good and reasonably priced. Breakfast, especially, was served very promptly, which was great as I had slept longer than expected as the room was very comfortable. Bar, breakfast and reception staff were all great and I will definitely stay here again. Only one negative was... More

We arrived and were quickly shown to our table. We were then given the wrong menu, then the waitress fell out with the girl behind the bar and started arguing. We got our drinks which were also wrong and then our food didn't come with chips or toast so we had to wait for about 10 minutes for that. Overall... More

Great wee hotel with bags of character. Well worth its AA 3 star rating. Staff were attentive and polite. Rooms bright and cheery. Wifi available at no extra cost. Plenty of choice for breakfast. Although I did not have dinner menu looked good. A good honest hotel which I would return to.

We stopped in for a High Tea and both ordered the fish n chips. Big fresh and tasty all round with oh so many cakes to round off the meal we really couldn't go near to finishing it but its not about that it was overall a great early meal.

We stopped here for lunch on a very snowy day in January. The dogs were welcome with us and staffs made a nice fuss of the. The place feels dated, but in a comfy old fashioned nice way.

Having just finished dinner I thought I would run through the days events before I forget. A room was booked 6 months ago. Having driven from Skye and encountering bridge closures we actually arrived at the Lovatt Arms early but tired & stressed. The first thing the receptionist said, in a not too friendly tone was: : " you're early"... More

Rarely do you get the customer care from all staff, but it was there at the Lovat Arms. Friendly and professional..everyone seemed to care. The room was fine. Instant Hot water and the cleanest of rooms and sparkling white bed sheets. The hotel feels slightly dated, but in a way that makes it work well. It is comfy and welcoming.... More
