We got a less than pleasant welcome, more like a tick box; Eating with us? Out late?
Our host walked us to our room with out a word. Other than that, this is a very very nice hotel, we were in room 38 which was huge, and the toilet/shower/bathroom is humungous and most comfortable.
We were coming back late so were furnished with a key. The breakfast next morning was nothing like the usual greasy Scots fair, high quality products, well cooked and politely served. I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for room 38!

Thank you for your positive review.
Really sorry about the welcome - not our norm as we always strive to be as friendly as possible.

Glad it did not detract from your overall impression of the Hotel.

Hopefully will see you back at The Priory in the future.

After a day at Inverness then heading for a long journey up north, we often stop at Beauly and have a meal in the Priory hotel. It is always delicious - Freshly cooked and large portions. We used to have the high tea, but had to stop as there is so much to eat! The cakes are fantastic, all home made, and the meringues!!!!!!!!!!!!!amazing! Very nice attentive staff, and all the meals are very good value. Would certainly recommend a visit.

We stayed here for the night. Our room was dated, not our style, but clean and functional, so no complaints. All staff encountered were pleasant, professional and helpful in their manner and service. We would stay here again as it is conveniently located to where we wanted to be and the standard is about right for what we paid, which you can't always be certain of these days.

Thank you for your comments - I am glad you felt most aspects were up to scratch.

We are currently working our way through the rooms - moving them all forward so hopefully if you return - you will not feel they are dated.

Look forward to seeing you again

The hotel is fine, service is great, location is brilliant but cleanliness on the room we stayed did not satisfied my expectations as tiles needs cleaning. Towels are not changed even if I put in the floor and came back they just hang it again with marks on it. Bed sheets and pillow cases not changed as well for the 3 days we spent there. Wifi is always disconnected every minute so not worth connecting with it. It's not ideal too if you wanted to stay in bed late than 8am as the busy road is your alarm. We only like the foods they serve although cooked breakfast was floating in oil. Haha. Count the sausages and bacons they serve too in case menu is not been followed as we experience some shortage during busy
hours in the morning. Will we stay again? We read your reviews in the future..!

Thank you for your review, I have read your comments and appreciate there were some shortcomings. It is good to get this type of feedback and be assured these issues will be
brought to the attention of the relevant departments. Unfortunately due to our location there is not a lot we can do about the traffic noise, although guests can request rear facing rooms, where this is less of an issue.

Than You again

We stayed four nights visiting relatives nearby.

The Priory was an ideal base. The rooms are possibly lacking in luxury but are clean and tidy and certainly comfortable. The food was good too.

Good value, we will stay again when we are next in the area

Thank you for your review - glad you enjoyed your stay.

We are currently upgrading some of our standard rooms to make them better and hopefully other than size they should compare well with our more superior rooms.

Nice large room, clean comfortable. We stayed here on our way from Edinburgh to Inverness no idea why our travel agent put us here and not Inverness. Not much else but The Priory which is right next door and free in Beauly. Ee ate in the hotel pub which was pretty good.

Sorry you did not get your preferred location - more than likely Inverness would have been full and Beauly is then the next option.
