“Maybe a good hotel, but don't let them put you in the 'Garden Suites' or 'Cottages'. These are terrible!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

We booked a one night stay at the Loch Ness Country House Hotel. They didn't have connecting rooms, as we used to have. But they did have a cottage for a family of four. The pics on there website and the reviews were good, so we gave it a try. We'll, we shouldn't. Never accept a garden suite - or a cottage, as they call it on their website. Garden suite 1 contains of a tiny living room with a twin bedroom on the first floor and a double bedroom on the second, poor decoration, outdated, filthy furniture, broken lamps and an old double bed. But for one night, what's the deal?
Well, the next morning we found out the shower wasn't working. There were two options: burning hot of ice cold. So we rang the reception: nobody answered the phone. We rang once more. Same thing. So I put on my clothes, ran to the hotel (through the pouring rain) and asked or someone could fix the thing. The guy came, did some plumbing and left again, saying everything was fine now. So I tried, and again: burning hot or ice cold. So I called again. No one answered the phone. To the reception again, through the pouring rain. Again that guy, saying that I had to let it run longer. Off course this didn't help. Obviously the thing was broken, but 'they never had a complaint about it before'. I can't believe it. Finally I had a shower in one of the rooms in the hotel. And I couldn't believe what I saw. A high end luxurious hotel room, with a beautiful bathroom. All first class. Now I understood the great reviews. Pity though we didn't experience all this luxury and service in our 'garden suite', although we also payed first class prices there. Worst of all, for breakfast they put us away that morning in a separate room, as some pariahs, separated from the other guests. Afraid we would complain about the hotel to them. Brrr, terrible place, that Loch Ness Country House Hotel.

Room Tip: Never let them put you in a garden suite or cottage!!! Better, avoid the whole place.

Lovely setting, we stayed in one of the cottages for one night - so disappointed we couldn't make more use of it, it was lovely! We opted for dinner there, which was pretty good, however the highlight of our evening was when the chef invited our 2 children to prepare mum & dads main course. My son wants to be the next Heston blumenthal, so he was beside himself!! We had a fantastic time due to the unique experience given to our children. Huge thanks to the staff, who couldn't have been nicer.

We stayed at the loch Ness Country House when attending our Niece's wedding and it was lovely. The wedding was absolutely fantastic and the staff looked after every one of us brilliantly. If you want a special treat for you and your significant other, then this is the place for you.

I was given a recommendation by my Son & Daughter in law to eat here and can say I was not disappointed. The service was first class the food quality and quantity superb.

The short spell in the delightful Lounge viewing the menu and having a drink was a lovely touch.

The prices for this service are very reasonable and will certainly choose to eat there again and would recommend to all to give it a try.

We stayed one night in the "Wyvis" room that had a lovely view of the mountains. The king size bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the breakfast (included) the following morning...then on to Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle...wonderful weather!

Room Tip: As for the Wyvis room...

A spontaneous last-minute week in the highlands started at this superb hotel, a traditional country house in attractive grounds accessed by a short private road and crunching gravel drive. Excellent service, good sized room with a decent bed - we had a view out over rolling countryside to the twinkling lights of Inverness in the distance; drinks on the deck with other guests before dinner, again looking out over mature wooded grounds; unbelievable food which had us slowing to almost a full stop while savouring the flavours and textures. Spoke to the chef to compliment him and ask about the food the following night - his day off. He assured me that the sous-chef was excellent and our experience the following evening was just as good. Truly five star.
