I first came here in 2009 with my wife and daughter; and returned with my son in law last week.
I have read all the reviews between the two visits. The important thing to remember here, is to take a view for the Caley for what it actually is. IMHO it is a Highland Hotel that quite simply knows how to practice good hospitality.
You can snag the fixtures and fittings if you wish, and you would be justified to do so with the other [two] coach staging posts in the village where people come and go. Here, you are welcomed as a person and well and truly looked after.
We were well fed with a good breakfast and the owner [Iain] cooked some superb home cooked meals in the evenings.
I am a former British Army Officer of Field Rank and have domiciled in Officers Messes in the UK and Europe. I can honestly say that in terms of offering good hospitality, comfort, value for money and a genuine and warm welcome, this is a bench mark.
I wasn't looking at the fittings and fiixtures, only the people, the food and the gemutlichkeit of the visit.
Well done to Iain and Cath Campbell; you have a gem of a place, and my family look forward to our next visit soonest,
