“Great reastaurant and B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

Travelling with a group of Danish tourists in my minibus.
We stayed at Fiddlers and had a superb meal, with a very comfortable overnight stay.
Pleasant staff, good choice menu.
My guests thought there may have been some musical entertainment though.

Room Tip: Take cash, as 2 card machines tried, did not work

We were cycling Great Glen Way on 22-24 May 2013 and out first night stop was Drumnadrochit. We were so exhausted after hail and rain on our way from Inverness ro Drumnadrochit, I thought nothing will brighten our mood. When we found Fiddler's restaurant, it was going to close and no food was being served, however the Fiddler's team cooked for us tasty dinner. We booked two rooms (there were three of us - a couple and one man) in advance, and we were really surprised how clean the rooms were and how comfortable everything was: huge beds, hot bath, there was everything you need. Accomodation was perfect - like in a good hotel. In the morning we had breakfast in the coffe shop, which we also really enjoyed. We will definitely suggest everybody travelling Great Glen Way or just visiting Drumnadrochit the Fiddler's Restaurant, Coffee shop and Accomodation!

we stopped off during the Glen Great Way walk and spent a lovely evening at Fiddlers restaurant and stayed at Oakdale across the road. Our room was just what we needed - spacious, clean and cosy with a HUGE bed. After 6 nights in various B&B accommodation this was our most comfortable night - the pillows and duvet were amazing.Lovely hot shower in the morning and a great breakfast. We didn't want yet another cooked breakfast so the cereal, fruit, yoghurt, breads and meat/cheese selection were perfect! We also ordered a packed lunch to take the next day which again was the best of the trip.

Room Tip: if you want an ensuite room go for the upstairs room with huge bed

We stayed in the rooms across the street (Oakdale). Had a clean, large room with a large bed. Had an excellent night sleep. Bathroom is little, but has everything you need. Perfect hot and strong shower. Just what you need. Jon welcomed us very friendly

Breakfast is continental. Not a minus for us but a plus if you're not used to eat a large meal in the morning. It was perfect to have a day without a fully cooked breakfast.

We ate in the restaurant. Beware, you should reservate! Place is fully packed in the evening.

A friend recommended us the stay, and we don't regret it. Would book a room again if going back to the region!

Really appreciated being offered a room with en-suite, or our own bathroom (for our exclusive use, but down the hall). My only feedback would be to re-key that door to the room key; not sure all of the other guests understood it was meant to be for our use exclusively!
Our room was over the pub, yet was surprisingly quiet. It was also huge for a Scottish or UK guesthouse (and I have a fair number with which to compare it!). The breakfast staff were very accommodating, and the offerings diverse. Fiddlers is located smack in the middle of the village so is convenient to everything.
Dinner at the restaurant was delicious and unique. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed upstairs over the restaurant... the bathroom was supposedly belonging to the room but was down the corridor... okay, but a little inconvenient. Also seemed a bit odd that other guest rooms were also provided with a key to the external door but for some reason this room was not.

The room appeared to be an old living room or similar, which made it big and rather quaint. While the restaurant downstairs is very good, the breakfast provided in the cafe next door was a little bland as other reviewers have described. Overall it is a comfortable enough place, but I couldn't honestly rate it any more than average. It might be a different experience for different rooms.

Room Tip: If you do expect an en-suite bathroom, make sure you ask for a room that has one.
