We went there for dinner and to watch a tennis game and had a great night !! Great homemade traditional food (delicious haggis, black pudding and highland steak) served by a lovely host, good local atmosphere, great choice of beers, really enjoyed our evening there.

We've stayed in 5 hotels on this tour of Scotland and this is where we've had the best breakfast. The room had been refurbished and was all that we needed. The bar is a local facility so nothing special.

This hotel is well past its best. Poor food, poor customer service and run down. This place needs a total revamp to make it worth the money to stay. Obviously running on past reputation and location entrapment. Decent bar though with a few local bar flies to crack on with.

This hostelry is the perfect retreat for anybody wishing to visit the charming village of Drumnadrochit. Lunchtime or evening the ambience is always warm and convivial. The staff are friendly, the room was spacious with a pleasant view. The 'patter' was first rate, we always find the locals to be good sorts and very friendly. We love the food and...

We came here to have a nosey at the brewery but was told that unfortunately it had gone into liquidation 😢 We stayed for a drink and a game of pool. The locals were lovely and told us about the brewery. It was very quiet but was exactly what we were looking for.

We called in for dinner and whilst the menu was not exhaustive it had a couple of tempting options and wasn't spoilt for choice. What the ambience lacks in class and luxury is far made up by the atmosphere of helpful locals blending with tourists. We found the staff helpful and efficient. I had steak and ale pie and my...

It is difficult to write much about this hotel other than this hotel promised much but delivered nothing much at all. Their signage promised 'non- residents welcome' this is a totally false statement! Absolutely and utterly Rubbish! Don't bother to waste your time, staff very rude and unfriendly☹️

We didn't stop here so cannot comment on the quality of the rooms, but we did eat here as it's the only dog friendly eatery in the town. It's a basic menu but don't let that put you off, simple food cooked well accompanied by a bar of well kept ales, the staff were friendly as were the locals who...

We stayed here in May. The rooms are basic but comfortable. The windows were opened and our room was full of fresh spring air and birdsong. But I wondered if it would be warm enough - the duvets were lovely and we slept very well. We enjoyed the pub - the food was generally good and the "chips" I had...
