We had a fantastic stay over Xmas including lunch on Xmas day. The rooms and common areas like the residents lounges, with open fires, are fabulously decorated with period furniture. The bedrooms are also very well equipped. Everywhere is spotless. I cannot speak too highly of the staff. Every single one was friendly, super efficient and all worked together superbly as a team. The result of that means that the service is first class and you feel completely relaxed because of how smooth the service is. The food is also excellent, breakfast, lunch or dinner. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. I know this area very well and this is definitely the best for miles around.

We had a deluxe room which was an unusual layout with a small ‘ante room’ that you entered into with the bathroom off one side and the bedroom off the other side. The bedroom was quite small - very easy to hit your head on the sloped ceiling at the side of the dormer window but lovely view across the Loch. Breakfast excellent- good buffet selection for cereals and cold food plus very tasty cooked dishes. The Brasserie was definitely worth visiting for dinner - lamb shoulder and beef cheek cooked to perfection and very tasty.

Me and my family stayed here 26/12/17 until 28/12/17 room 25. Could not have asked for a better hotel! Our room was spotless and very spacious considering we were a family of 2 adults and 3 children. Bathroom is very spacious with shower and separate bath which was huge! Room fully equipped with everything you need. Staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfast both mornings was amazing could not have asked for more.

The Lovat is well located in Loch Ness and makes an ideal base for walking or sightseeing in the surrounding area. You can't escape the fact that Loch Ness is a tourist trap, but the surrounding countryside is beautiful. The hotel is smart and tastefully furnished, and bedrooms well equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable.

However, for us, the hotel had something of a corporate feel to it, rather than being a family run hotel and we didn't feel anything more than anonymous hotel guests. As a result, we wouldn't choose the Lovat on a return visit to the area.

Writing this as we are packing up to leave and cannot praise this place and their staff highly enough! We came up here after a very mixed experience at Crieff Hydro and instantly our faith in Scottish Hospitality was restored. We came with our dog and three year old daughter who was making it her mission to drive everyone and especially ourselves up the wall. The staff responded with smiles and kind words and helped to calm her down and sit with us for meals. The food also demands a special mention from the wide variety of options for breakfast all of the highest quality, to the delicious choices from the brasserie to the outstanding tasting menu at station road (well worth booking as soon or before you arrive). We were welcomed warmly from start to finish with all the staff seemingly with a vested interested in ensuring you had a wonderful and relaxing time even when some fellow guests stretched the breakfast times rules they too were given the same warm welcome as we were. Our room was ample for the four of us with a beautiful bathroom and underfloor heating. A well stocked mini bar and a coffee machine and kettle all provided along with some beautiful towels and bathrobes. Well worth a stop if in the area or a planned trip for a lovely wee holiday. We'll be back without a doubt!
