“Beautiful Location, Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

A really lovely hotel. We stayed in the garden room - warm, cosy and very comfortable beds.
Good selection for breakfast. The hotel is located in centre of Fort Augustus which is a good location for travelling to Inverness.

Two Lounges to sit and relax. We chose the one with the fire. There is a bar which is open reasonably late. We had dinner in restaurant which was nice but quite pricey.

The Lovat arms is certainly a lovely hotel to return to at the end of a long day of travelling.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are extremely comfortable and better value.

I have been going to The Lovat for a few years now and can honestly say it is a fantastic place to stay. The Lovat has exceptional character and is set in a stunning natural beauty spot. We pass through with our boat a few times a year and we are always very well looked after by the team. They have often provided a venue for us to have a large team meal and the food and service is always spot on and very reasonably priced. I can't wait to return with my wife - I'm already looking forward to the breakfast.

Gorgeous views, excellent service ( even our 2 year old had her high chair set with pretty cutlery, bowl and cup)! The menu was the best we'd seen in days in the highlands and the ox cheek was delicious.

We only stayed one night at the lovat but we shall certainly be goin back soon. All the staff were so friendly and helpful we couldn't have asked for more. We stayed in a deluxe room which was perfect. Lovely and clean and some nice wee touches in the room. We ate in the brasserie and our meal was simply perfect. Well worth the prices. Honestly can't recommend this hotel enough. And our bag of cookies given to us on check out was a very cute touch. Can't wait to go back

Day three of the Great Glen Way brought us to Fort Augustus and The Lovat.
Everything, from the welcome when we arrived to the settlement of our bill told us that this was the right place to stay.
They even tailored the set evening meal to my dietary requirements. (I have Diabetes).
Would we stay here again. Absolutely yes. Would we reccomend the Lovat to a friend? Without hesitation.

After a days walking around Glen Nevis, it was a delight to arrive at the Lovat. I collapsed on one of the most comfortable beds I have slept on in any hotel. The room was well appointed and everything you could want was at hand. The breakfast was superb and kept us going all day. It is worth stopping at Fort Augustus just to stay here.

Ate a late dinner here tonight. It was fantastic. We arrived at almost 9pm but they were still serving. Had our 2 year old niece with us who was hungry, tired and had had enough after a long journey.

Staff quickly got her some juice and a box of goodies to keep her entertained. We ordered from the brasserie menu, starters and main- all delicious. Husband was particularly impressed with the smoked salmon starter and I loved the venison burger. Kids menu had plenty of choice (although the addition of pizza would be welcomed by my niece!)

It was a little bit pricey for bar food when i first read menu but the food was excellent and the service was also so happy to pay in the end.

I hope to return for an overnight stay at some point as the rest of the hotel looked excellent. An after dinner drink by the fire would have been a lovely end to the meal but our little niece was needing her bed.
