Very comfortable hotel, friendly but professional. Would recommend it. Room was spacious and well fitted although bed a bit high - almost needed a ladder to get in - good food for breakfast and dinners and comfortable lounge to relax after dinner

What a pleasure to arrive at the Lovat while cycling the Great Glen way last summer. The room was clean, comfortable and modern. The hotel is incredibly well-run with so much pride of ownership and attention to detail. Fort Augustus is beautiful and the food at the Lovat was outstanding! I enjoyed every moment of my stay.

This was our third stay at The Lovat and for good reason. Every time we visit Scotland we simply have to visit Fort Augustus and take a trip on Loch Ness. The Lovat provides a warm and relaxing atmosphere, welcoming staff and sumptuous food. It is quite simply my idea of heaven.

A perfect blend of old and new that caters for everyone. Excellent facilities with plenty to keep our wee ones entertained. The restaurant was amazing with an excellent choice that would cover just about every taste. Perfect location for exploring the area in foot, by boat or by car. Would definitely go back and look forward to it already.

We enjoyed a one night stay at The Lovat in October this year. With our 18 year old son we shared a room that had lovely views of the town. Our room was in the main building. The room was beautifully furnished and there were yummy Tunnoch cakes in the room to enjoy. We enjoyed drinks and nibbles with friends... More
