Won’t bore you with details but we unexpectedly stayed at this hotel....so had no preconceived notions. The hotel is small and very unique. The experience would suite someone looking for a high class B&B experience. It’s not a typical large 5 star hotel so make sure your expectations are in line. It is a large house which has been converted to fit the 7 en-suite bedrooms it has. Plenty of parking right outside, just follow the signs for ‘lodge’ up the steep track when you see it. We were checked in without issue and shown to our room after a quick tour. Name escapes me but the person checking us in was fantastic. We were asked to complete the breakfast request form and leave this on the reception desk before 10pm. The hotel has two lounge areas with a variety of seating. These are very relaxing areas! There is no bar but drinks can be ordered from the person on reception duties. We had the Urquhart room which was on the upper floor and facing the loch. The room was the size of an large main bedroom in a house, but big enough for our needs. Views were great. En-suite bathroom was fine. There is a small TV and facilities to make coffee/tea. Interior looked very classy. The bed was very comfy and the bedding/pillows were top range. You’ll certainly have a great sleep here! Breakfast was lovely even though our hot orders were wrong. The waitress stated our pre order form confused them, which I struggled to understand how having spent the time to be concise with it. I thought they would have just asked us to confirm our order before plating it up if they weren’t sure. But we still enjoyed the parts of the breakfast we received. Top quality ingredients and cooked to perfection. Couple of bits of constructive criticism: The kettle in our room had a short cable and no sockets within reach of the desk it was on. Had to plug it in on the floor by the standing lamp. My partner had to use the same socket for her hair straighteners so couldn’t use a mirror at same time. Also, I’m all for refilling the shower gel bottles etc (as opposed to wasting plastics)...but the text on them is so faded you couldn’t work out which one was the shampoo and shower gel. Both look identical. All in all a really good nights stay and I would highly recommend to anyone who likes smaller and more personal hotels.

My husband and I stayed here and we didn’t feel as if we had a 5* experience. Pros: - We arrived very early and it was raining, we arrived at 11am and were told we could check in earlier at 1300. - Beautiful view. - Lovely large rooms and bathrooms - Breakfast is good Cons: - Though we arrived early we were sopping wet, we weren’t offered a place to sit or even a drink (perhaps Covid) although they kindly let us leave our luggage this isn’t the service I’m used to when paying these prices. - No food served, no room service menu for food, only drinks. - Bathroom toiletries were filthy. - They ask that you open the windows before you leave the room but when I moved the curtains to do this so many insects flew out. - The OJ served at breakfast isn’t fresh - The host wasn’t the most welcoming, cold and uppity. - Large room with a teeny tiny TV - They have a wonderful building and say you can use the drawing room but I really didn’t feel welcome at all - We stayed while there were Covid restrictions in place, so we had the absolutely beautiful dining room to ourselves, however at full capacity I wouldn’t want to have breakfast there. It feels far too “4 in a bed” for my liking. I’d have breakfast in my room, it’s large enough. Overall, if you’re choosing between here and the Clansman, pick the latter. The decor isn’t as nice but the views are equally as picturesque, the staff are lovely and you’ll end up there for food anyway, which I preferred for breakfast.

The price of a room overlooking Loch Ness was slightly more than prices in the area, only wish we had taken more time to take advantage of the stunning views. Unfortunately due to an accident just down the road we had to circumnavigate Loch Ness with the rest of the rush hour traffic, around the remote Highland roads. The less said about that the better. The lodge itself is beautifully decoration with style and class. It has that warm, wecloming Highland lodge feel to it. The room itself was large with a lovely bathroom and some good quality shortbread to match. The stand out moment was the service provided by the team at the lodge. We were planning to leave early to continue our journey and asked if breakfast could be provided earlier. The colleagues first response was 'yes', then she went about making it work. A few calls later and she had arrange her colleague to start earlier in the morning and came to the room to let us know. Thank you and sorry for not taking your name and for asking in the first place. This positive, can do attitude makes the difference.

I hate leaving negative reviews but for the price we paid (£290) for a night's B&B we felt that there was no need for the shortcomings we found. First the positives: Beautiful location and our premium room had nice views of the loch. Room was spacious, spotlessly clean, very comfy bed, pillows and quality linens. The premises are very clean, beautifully furnished, and decorated and staff friendly and polite. Breakfast was superb, probably the best we had during our weeks tour around the Highlands. We had dinner at their nearby sister hotel which was very good and they arranged a taxi at a discounted rate for us. Now the not so good: We booked 2.5 weeks before arrival. The website stated afternoon tea was included in the rate however when I checked just before we left home it had been removed. I queried this and was told this wasn't being included in the rate anymore (but no reduction in the rate seemingly) but as it had been there when I booked it would be honoured however we were informed on arrival it was now just tea and cakes but we were actually just served 3 tiny canape sized sweet treats each (see pic) and not what I would call afternoon tea at all! The budget quality TV in the room was the size of a laptop screen and unviewable unless you pulled up the (single) chair in the room and sat 2 feet away from it, certainly couldn't watch it from the bed! There was no hairdryer in the room, (a fact I discovered when I need to dry my hair 10 minutes from our scheduled breakfast time) but there should have been apparently. Good to see single use toiletries in the bathroom are not used but refillable dispensers are however none of the 3 containers in the bath/shower had any labels (rubbed off apparently due to sanitizing) perhaps a ploy to ensure guests do not use them?? The shower screen seal was full of mould. It was discoloured (which happens over time) but if I can mange to clean some mould out using just some damp toilet paper why can't housekeeping? If we'd paid half the rate then the problems above would probably have been overlooked but for the price we paid, we expected basic housekeeping standards, room provisions and rate inclusions at time of booking to be upheld.
