Spent on night with wife and son in two bedrooms. Each had a TV, a coffee maker, and a bathroom. Very quiet place, clean and staff super friendly. Situated about 50 meters from the Loch Ness Exhibition. Walking distance from restaurants.

We were in one of the rooms in the annexe. It basically a stand alone series of rooms that feels like it's between two car parks for the visitor centre and the hotel. I was travelling with my husband and the room we were shown to had twin beds with no explanation as we had booked a double. When we...

Stayed here lots of times. Comfy, well-equipped and affordable. Normally stay in one of the annexed rooms but upgraded to hotel room as out of season. TV, wi-fi, bed - what more do you need? Oh, and a subsidised breakfast. Perfectly located for Inverness and further. Best to go on a bus. Twenty five minutes and spectacular views. Plus handy...

We stopped for coffee and snacks after visitng some of the other local attractions. We were a family of all ages and enjoyed the hot or cold drinks and cakes. I especially enjoyed the haggis pie. The staff were friendly and eager to serve. Free WiFi too ( the password raised a smile)

The hotel provides a very good breakfast and the location is good. But hotel is quite old and the rooms are a bit dark. Furniture are also quite old. This is basically an average hotel but it's a bit pricy. Not value for money!!

This was a very clean, but average place to stay. The price was right on the money, the staff was great and very helpful, but a very small and old creaky bed. The town is very small so we were able to walk to places and see somethings there.

Our stay at the hotel for 3 nights in October 2016 was a bit of a mixed bag. The staff were all lovely and the location was good but the bedrooms really need renovating as they are definitely showing their age and are really letting the hotel down. With a bit of renovation and TLC this hotel could be excellent...
