The hotel provides a very good breakfast and the location is good. But hotel is quite old and the rooms are a bit dark. Furniture are also quite old. This is basically an average hotel but it's a bit pricy. Not value for money!!

This was a very clean, but average place to stay. The price was right on the money, the staff was great and very helpful, but a very small and old creaky bed. The town is very small so we were able to walk to places and see somethings there.

Our stay at the hotel for 3 nights in October 2016 was a bit of a mixed bag. The staff were all lovely and the location was good but the bedrooms really need renovating as they are definitely showing their age and are really letting the hotel down. With a bit of renovation and TLC this hotel could be excellent... More

The pub and restaurant are reasonably priced. The rooms are modern and comfortable though the walls are very thin: you can hear your neighbours' voices although this was not a problem. The free WiFi works well.æ Decent value for the money, and very near Loch Ness.

Comfortable bed and great full Scottish breakfast, hot shower and reasonable facilities. Downside is being surrounded by Nessie tourist souvenirs which makes one feel as if Scotland has turned into a theme park. Convenient not classy.

We spent one night here to visit Urquhart castle and Loch Ness, The staff were lovely and friendly and the food was great, My only issue was a really dated room, It could definitely do with a bit modernising but some people do not mind this so I've rated it 4 star :)
