Stayed here March 2021 as I had to travel for work (essential). The staff were friendly and very attentive. My room was spotlessly clean and the food was excellent. Would definitely use again for work or leisure accommodation.

My husband & I stayed in room 2 over the weekend as we were attending a friend's wedding. The room was clean & had everything we needed for our stay. Our room had a balcony over looking the water & the view was stunning. Breakfast was good, you can help yourself to toast juice yogurts in the back room as well as ordering a full cooked breakfast. The staff were very attentive & friendly. Big shout out to Nicola who was running front of house the first two days we were there. She is an asset to the place & very friendly. We would highly recommend a stay here! We will return once corona has disappeared to get the full lochnell experience but giving these horrible times it was still pleasant.

We visited the Lochnell a few times when staying at North Ledaig. Ate once and the food was good, standard pub grub. We sat outside on a few occasions to have a drink. Lovely peaceful place with beautiful views, can’t wait to return.
