Here on a fairly intense business event. The hotel is smack in centre of town and a stone's throw from Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal. The rooms are well appointed (first time I've had a tv in the bathroom) and the lounges warm and comfortable. Food of high quality. Will be back for a leisure break!

Absolutely stunning location, amazing hotel with amazing staff. Breakfasts are out of this world. Cannot wait to go back again for longer next time.
I'm lost for words on how this hotel and its staff made me and my partner feel.

Room Tip: Want a big bed? Don't have one of the outside lodges.

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.
