Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Well, I'm not usually one for writing reviews, but this place is well worthy of a little of my time.
Myself and Brother Ali were on business in the area and needed somewhere to stay that was close to our next day destination. So we got booked into the Lodge.

Now I'm a little sceptical of non well branded accommodation, I'm usually comfortable with Lenny Henry's place, at a push a Hillbilly Inn ? How wrong was I.

We booked, immediately received a text from Heather advising us of the current Covid rules in Scotland (we're from England) very, very politely I might add. We got the menu and restaurant timings via text, our room numbers, how we could access the hotel rooms, and to call if we had the slightest issue.

We arrived early, but accessed our rooms which were extremely clean, well equipped, but most importantly.... WARM! It's cold up there.

Anyway, after a quick shower we decided that we ought to go and say hello to our hosts and maybe have a quick beer. We were greeted by Heather's Husband (shamefully I never asked his name) but what a warm, friendly, engaging sort of guy he is. More about him in a moment.

Heather arrived a little while after and was equally as warm and engaging as her Husband. We had a beer and a chat about life and time generally - which was great, it was then time to eat.

Well I kid you not. I've had Plaice, Chips and Peas before..... Not like this. EPIC is the only way to describe it. Beautifully cooked, beautifully presented, and so, so tasty. We don't get fish thats white in the middle in the Midlands!!

Let me tell you, Mr Husband can cook!!

Moving on. A few more beers and we were asked what we might like for breakfast, and also what time we would like it as it would be freshly cooked to order. I've never experienced that before.

So, I ordered the full Scottish, Brother Ali opted for Smoked Salmon and scrambled egg. More toast jam and honey than you could ever eat, fresh coffee and juice.

Seriously, that guy can cook!!

Well, again, it was EPIC. We both left the Lodge well rested, well fed, and well happy.

Absolutely great hosts (sorry Mr Owner but I didn't get your name) great value, great place. All you need to do is go there.

Who Knew......

Best Regards

Baz & Ali

We stayed for 3 nights at this excellent hotel.
Heather and Derek, the owners looked after us superbly, despite the difficulties of face masks and other Covid restrictions.
The bedroom was immaculate and food delicious, with a great choice for breakfast.
Heather even offered us ‘off menu’ specialties following chats about food we particularly like. Husband was delighted with his mussel stew and the lamb cutlets were top notch.
At breakfast, my top favourite was the Finan Haddock with poached eggs on top. It glad been poached in milk and lemon which gave a delicious flavour.
Heather also made a special trip to Tain cheese factory to buy a box of 8 Tain cheeses on our behalf. Terrific value at £20!
Highly recommend

Had a fantastic two night stay at Carnegie Lodge Hotel. Very comfortable bed and room beautiful. Where do I start with the food it was out of this world thank you Derek. Hospitality from Heather, Derek and Shona was far and beyond any expectations . This is a family run hotel and it shines through, you feel you are staying at friends which in my book is very important, making your stay comfy and enjoyable. Picking up on other guests who were staying it is evident they stay there often and feel very comfortable. Thank you again Heather and Derek

The staff are very friendly and I’ve never had a bad stay here on the many occasions I’ve travelled for work to the area.
Rooms are clean and have a really fresh feel about them. Comfortable and quiet
The food is great and always piping hot. The haggis bonbons are a great starter and for anyone looking to taste haggis for the first time you won’t get better.
I always recommend the lodge to family, friends and work colleagues looking to stay in the area.

What a wonderful stay we have just had at the Carnegie Lodge Hotel. There were 7 of us in 4 rooms which were all perfect. We had a meal on the first night which was excellent, very tasty and generous portions. The breakfasts were superb both days and we enjoyed a drink or two in their well stocked bar. Heather and Derek were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for such an enjoyable stay and I’m pretty sure we’ll be back.

I stayed at the hotel for two nights on a family trip and boy am I glad I did. From the point of booking, the service was slick and easy. We received a warm welcome from Heather and Derek and were shown to our twin room which was immaculate. The room was quiet, and the bed was so comfy I could easily have slept it voluntarily.... but that would have meant missing breakfast! And what a breakfast. In fact, the meals both nights were beautiful with fresh local cuisine front and centre. I class myself as being high on the greedy scale, but it felt like an audition for an eating contest! Amazing value for money which meant I bet the cost-of-living crisis for a couple of days by skipping lunch.

Heather and Derek were such friendly hosts and were very knowledgeable about the local area and NC500. I would highly recommend the hotel and will definitely return!

Fantastic hotel with a very warm welcome, run by a lovely couple, Heather & Derek. Food is exceptional with extremely generous portions, all cooked by Derek. Super comfy beds in quiet room. Very clean and comfortable overall but the friendliness is second to none, truly a home from home. Thank you for the welcome break en route to Orkney Heather & Derek.
