Phil and Sarina and 'Mum' are the lovely people who run this hotel. Every room is focussed on a different kind of crystal and is painted in colours to match. I stayed in the Rose Quartz room which is light, spacious, has a massive bed and bay windows that overlook Strathpeffer and the surrounding hills.
The hotel is very dog friendly. Phil and Sarina have a gorgeous old(er) dog named Luckie, so having my old(er) dog stay with me in the room was no problem at all. The bar is open at the weekend and so is the restaurant, which is the only restaurant in Scotland to offer a Mauritian menu and it's well worth trying this out. Yummee!
Phil and Sarina also offer complimentary therapies such as Singing Bowl Relaxation, Drum Massage and the Alexander Technique to name but a few.
The area around Stratpeffer is ideal for outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, bird watching, relaxing and it's only a half hour drive from Inverness, but far more pretty and peaceful.
I recommend this hotel whole-heartedly, I loved every minute of my stay.
