Room was well decorated, modern and good sized with a superb shower. Bar food was simple but well cooked and again really good value. Breakfast...

We do our best to provide great value for money. I’m glad you found this the case during your stay. Hope you enjoyed your day in hills. We are in a great location for an easy drive to lots of local Munros. Hope you’ll be back to explore more of them soon. Kind Regards Alastair.

Stayed there last week on an 8 day coach holiday with Shearings and had a wonderful stay. Hotel was beautifully done out, and had friendly and helpful staff. We had a lovely room on the 2nd floor, which was quiet and clean with a lovely modern bathroom. The food was good. The lift was a bit old and small, although...

Strathpeffer is great location with some lovely walks. I’m often out in the hills myself. Smoking is not permitted in any areas of the Hotel expect the front veranda. If you suspect someone is smoking in the room please let us know at reception and we will deal with problem for you. Glad to hear you enjoyed our refurbished rooms...

I had asked for a room with a shower near to a lift, the one I was given was on the ground floor with a shower, perfect. The food was adequate for a Shearings package, entertainment was mainly for the older generation but the Highland dancers were good. The hotel is slowly being modernised, new carpets and furniture in the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Peacefully set in its own grounds with lovely views over the colourful village square, this chateau style hotel’s traditional features have been carefully retained to strike just the right Highland note. A warm welcoming feeling comes as much from the friendly staff as from the fine wood panelled public rooms which have been carefully preserved. Strathpeffer itself is just steps away from the hotel and is renowned as an attractive Highland spa resort with fabulous Victorian architecture. Be sure to enjoy the scenic views of the village below from the open veranda. The massive peak of Ben Wyvis is the backdrop to this charming village. It’s a perfect base from which to explore Scotland’s dramatic Northern Highlands – mountainous countryside, sparkling streams, waterfalls and golden shores. ... more   less
