My husband and I and two other couples stayed overnight at the Lovat as part of our Great Glen Way walk adventure. The Lovat is a stately old hotel set in picturesque grounds with an impressive entry area and common rooms. It is situated in the pretty town of Fort Augustus on the southern end of Loch Ness - well worth an over night visit. We chose the basic level of room which while not spacious had every amenity and was perfectly suited to our one night stay when we would only be sleeping in the room. It proved good value for money. If you were staying longer or spending more time in your room upgrading to a higher level of room would add more to the ambiance of your stay.
We ate in the Brasserie for dinner in the evening and for breakfast. The meals were fantastic and deserving of the good reviews.
Having enjoyed dining in many countries over a number of years I feel that the food at the Lovat (along with our diners and breakfasts at the Rockpool Reserve, Inverness and Monochyle Mhor, Balquhidder, and our breakfasts and afternoon teas at Loch Ness Lodge out of Drumnadrochit) was as good as I have experienced anywhere.
All the staff that we came across at the Lovat were friendly and helpful.
The picturesque setting, the ambiance, the food and the service at the Lovat added greatly to our overall enjoyment of our Great Glen Way experience.
