“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

I spent five days at the Caledonian on holiday with my sister, and it couldn’t have been better. The hotel has a lovely feel to it with a nice open reception area and a cosy, friendly feeling bar. Everything was very clean and both the breakfasts and the evening meals were delicious. Chris was the perfect host, making sure we had everything we needed and giving us advice about things to do during our stay. We will definitely return!

Just stay here! Five of us spent a night here (five separate rooms) and we all voted it perfect.
It knocks the Premier Inn, Holiday Inn etc into a cocked hat.
Brilliant breakfast. Nice people. Extra comfy - what more do you want?

Room Tip: All five rooms which our party booked were excellent.

I stayed here with a group in five single rooms and every one of us left with intentions to return with our partners. The hotel is a very traditional Scottish one, but in a good way, not in the common falling to bits way. The staff are so friendly, the rooms are comfortable, the bathrooms are lovely, its all clean and the breakfast is wonderful. I have stayed in more expensive hotels in Fort Augustus in the past, but will never go past this little gem when I return.

I would like to say a big thank you to all at the hotel for a lovely stay.

I 'never' write reviews but the quality of my two night stay at the Caledonian Hotel was so high that I am making an exception! The Hotel was extremely clean, comfortable, with a warm friendly atmosphere. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. Chris is a great host - I felt very welcomed and comfortable at all times, yet in an unobtrusive way. All the staff were very attentive to make everything run very smoothly. I was on a business trip but felt as though I had been on holiday! Live music in the bar one night helped to create a great atmosphere. I couldn't recommend the Caledonian highly enough.

This hotel lived up to its recommendation by the Scottish Tourist Board through whom we made our reservation. Easy to find, (just off the A82), warm, welcoming and clean throughout and a real family and friendly atmosphere. We dined out and only took breakfast in the hotel but it was very good, high quality of service and the hotel more than met our expectations for an overnight stop. We would certainly return if we are in the area.

We stayed only one night at Hotel Caledonia and wished we could have stayed longer. We were on a tour and time was limited. The hotel was wonderful. The manager, Chris, was engaging. Our fellow patrons,especially at the bar, were delightful. The entire experience at the hotel was one of my favorite on my trip to Scotland.

We stayed one night at the Caledonian before heading home from our holiday. We wished we'd discovered it sooner and been able to stay longer.

The welcome and the service was fantastic, the best we have experienced at any hotel anywhere, ever.

I am not at all surprised to see the many well-deserved comments and compliments here. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at this hotel.
