We stayed here after walking part of our trip along the Great Glen Way. We were tired and sore but got a warm welcome. We used a baggage service to deliver our luggage and they kindly placed the bags in the room well before we arrived so was nice not taking them upstairs. The room was cosy and comfortable, especially...

Fantastic location in lovely Fort Augustus with friendly staff, clean and cosy rooms and a decent sized fry-up / help-yourself breakfast. Car parking around the corner through a side entrance road near the lochs. I really couldn't fault this budget hotel (not much is cheap or budget in Scotland so while it may not be your idea of budget, it...

They were very helpful explaining a few things on the menu. The food was very enjoyable and we had a lovely evening. Would recommend...

Went in twice for drinks, served quickly and even though it was raining we were able to sit outside as there is a large cover above the tables. Staff were nice and friendly and we went back the next day as well.

Had lunch here, best fish & chips I've ever had. Kids had mac & cheese & loved it. Staff were so welcoming, especially the landlord. Ended up here after being turned away from another couple of places in Fort Augustus, one because they had stopped serving food (at lunch time?!) & the other as they didn't have high chairs. But...

Stopped at the Richmond House Hotel for late lunch after a day after exploring round Loch Ness. Looking for something to eat that was not going to cost an arm and a leg due to being in a tourist trap. Staff were welcoming and although they were busy it felt very warm and welcoming. Ordered the Steak and Ale pie...

Ate in the pub restaurant here. The steak pie, like so many 'pub pies' nowadays is stewed steak, topped with a puff pastry flake, not the gravy-infused shortcrust pastry you'd hope for, The fish batter, of the fish n' chips was anaemic, though the fish was cooked. Very, very expensive for what it was but this appears to be a...
