Myself and five other friends came to this hotel last week and although it needed updating the homemade food and friendly staff made up for this. The rooms were spotless with everything in that you needed. All in all a good stay in a lovely village.

This is an old hotel and in need of refurbishment, however the staff are all very friendly and the food is of a reasonable standard. Our room which was situated away from the main building was very cold when we first entered. The electric heater in the bedroom did heat the room after an hour but there was no heating...

We spent our evenings in the lounge bar here whilst we stayed at the Highland hotel. Gents toilets were quite wet underfoot. The entertainment here was quite good in a convivial atmosphere. The turn did not start till 9 pm so we would have a drink in the bar prior to going to the lounge.

We spent 2 nights here recently during our "Indian summer". We were placed in the Lodge just behind the hotel. It was very quiet and comfortable and the bathroom with shower cabinet was ideal. There was adequate parking. The main reason we enjoyed our stay was the young staff who were pleasant, very polite and cheery. There was a bus...

Ok, it would be easy to criticise this hotel, but I think that would be unfair. We were up for the Loch Ness marathon and were there just for the one night beforehand. When we checked in the lady on reception was very apologetic that they hadn't known the marathon was on, otherwise they would have had staff on early...

From the outside Mackay's isn't much to look at and parking is a little sparse for the size of the place. However, although basic the rooms were a good size and well maintained. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was of a very high standard. We were well looked after during our stay by everyone at Mackay's...

Mainly used as an elderly coach holiday stop off destination, this hotel was decorated akin to an old peoples home. The dinner menu was a set menu with a rather basic selection of food for inflated prices - possibly due to the fact that there is little selection of eateries in the area. When enquiring about a table and prices...
