It would appear that the Achilty is a shadow of its former self. It doesn’t operate as a hotel anymore which was a disappointment to us arriving at 7pm and hoping for a relaxing night eating in. Achility is now a bed and breakfast venue only so the “hotel” title is something of a misnomer. We received a warm welcome from the hostess who kindly directed us to the excellent Cottage Bar and restaurant six miles down the road at Maryburgh for dinner. The Achilty is a tired place; décor is faded, the bed spongy and the bathroom aged, though clean and functional. The Goodmans LCD TV is the smallest I’ve encountered; I’ve watched TV on bigger lap tops! Despite being alongside the main road, Room 7 we stayed in had effective double glazing and the noise from traffic wasn’t a problem. Breakfast was hearty and generous if not a little overcooked. Achilty has seen better days, but it’s a reasonable stop over hotel for one night and represents fair value for money at £75 including breakfast. Whilst in the area, check out the Contin Falls just down the road and the Glen Ord Distillery, (home of the Singleton of Glen Ord) about 15 minutes away.
