Reviewed 22 May 2011

I really can't fault this hotel. Staff friendly and extremely helpful despite reviews I have since read on this website. Rooms comfy and clean. Liked the eco friendly touch too! Highly recommended. Thank you Lovat.

The hotel has great views and a good location. Quality of food and the service in the restaurant were excellent, the enthusiasm and support of the staff particularly to two young children and my wife who is partially disabled was second to none. I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay at this hotel and will be going back.

Great food, lovely location and really personal friendly service. Room was fine if not a little dark with small windows overlooking beautiful views.
Decor around the hotel was a little dated but appeared to be getting improved. Would highly recommend.

What a lovely comment! Many thanks for taking the time to write on TripAdvisor, it is greatly appreciated.

I have passed your comments to all staff who are thrilled you enjoyed your stay.

Dated – it would be good to hear your views further on what you felt was dated about the hotel as we are looking to improve? We are to install a new carpet throughout the hotel but with the main busy season approaching we are postponing until Winter. We are keeping the traditional element of the hotel with the contemporary Brasserie & bedrooms however the breakfast room will be revamped at some stage when finances dictate. New artwork is also on the cards.

Best wishes,
Caroline

Stayed here as a base for a cycle to inverness, the hotel was an excellent choice the location is stunning the accommodation was superb. The staff were very helpful and the overall atmosphere was relaxing. Stayed in a chalet room which was small but adequate and good value for the money paid.

I love this place. The whole team seems to genuinely enjoy making your stay the best it can be.

The quality of food and breakfast were excellent, good selection of whiskies, good selection of magazines to read and browse while sitting in the lounge or drawing room.

Will definitely be back

Stayed here at the beginning of April with 3 friends for 1 night to break up the journey to Skye. The staff were excellent and very welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable. Free wifi. The food in the restaurant was fantastic, absolutely delicious and very well presented. Very reasonable wine list Can't really fault this place had a great stay and a top notch Scottish breakfast (haggis and all!) Would definately recommend.
