“Great food in this busy restaurant - minor issues”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We were stopping locally and as this is the only place to eat without using a car we ate here.
A choice of restaurant with reservation only or eating in the bar however this did get busy.
Really good choice of food including specials and locally sourced ingredients. Local beers went down well.
They clear have a deal with the local foresters and the presence of a large group of workmen filling the small bar drinking, cursing and smoking in the doorway with dirty clothes may put some people off and really doesn't do anything for the hotel image.

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

Traditional hotel, rooms very comfortable. Food was excellent, we loved the breakfast and we also ate dinner in the restaurant four nights running. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful, especially Ailsa, the proprietor.

Room Tip: We had Room 3 in the main building, overlooking the front and with a view of mountains. TV was a mus...

We booked this hotel after reading very positive reviews on Trip Advisor; our experience was totally different.
We had booked for 2 nights and were allocated room 10 which is in the annex. The room is spacious but is on groung floor level and unless you have the curtains permanently closed there is no privacy...net curtains or blinds are needed on both windows. We were woken at 6.00am by the shower system being used in the room next door and then further noise from the room on the opposite side aound 7.15am as they to used their bathroom. The sound insulation in the room being extremely poor. Thankfully we were able to change rooms to a Deluxe double in the main building which was much better apart from the traffic noise from the main road in front of the hotel.
The resturant in the evening was very disappointing ; we both had the 'fresh fish and chips'...the chips being oven chips and along with the fish totally tasteless. My Husband ordered the cheese board and at £8.95 way over priced, the pieces of cheese were small and again not at all apetising. Needless to say we did not eat there on our second evening.
The breakfast however was excellent; great selection, well presented and very tasty.
The staff are very helpful and friendly and take time to chat to you offering advice on local attractions etc.. definately their best asset.

Room Tip: Definately go for a room in the main hotel and if possible away from the main road.

We booked this hotel whilst attending to wedding planning in Inverness. Although quite isolated (which we wanted) the hotel offers a friendly bar for travellers, restaurant with great good and bedrooms to a clean and comfortable standard.
Highland cows in the opposite field were just so cute and added to the Scottish highland experience. Great base to visit surrounding towns too

In an effort to find the Loch Ness monster we detoured on our way up to the highlands and spent an afternoon and evening around Loch Ness. Strangely we found that there is very little to do in and around the Loch. We saw the locks and had an ok lunch in the small village at the start of the Loch, we had tried to check in to the Glenmoriston Arms only to be told that it was closed to visitors for the afternoon and we should come back after 4:00. WE had booked the room with the 4-poster bed and as other reviewers have mentioned the bed left a lot to be desired. They have obviously spent a lot of money renovating the bathroom but certainly should have spent some on a better bed, I would wager that people are more interested in a comfortable bed than a gigantic tub

Having said that we spent a delightful time talking with some locals while having a few drinks on the small patio. Dinner in the hotel was good as was the breakfast the next morning as we headed of to Dornoch in search of a comfortable bed.

Room Tip: don't bother with the 4-poster

We stayed in room 10, in the annex, and it was very comfortable and suitable. Nothing fancy, but workable, and the bathroom was very nice! Short walk to the neat sights in town and the waterfall. Dinner was fine, and breakfast was tasty and served quickly. Ask for a fan for your room to combat the lack of air conditioning and you'll be very comfortable.

Room Tip: Wifi only works in the lounge, but it's comfortable in there. Rooms are a little small but perf...
