While we weren't there under the best of circumstances, I couldn't fault the place at all. The room was very comfortable and most importantly clean. All the staff very friendly and a good choice of breakfast in the mornings. The evening choices of food are good too with lots of local produce on offer. Located just on the Loch, there... More

We came into town on a Saturday and at the suggestion of our B&B host we went to the Loch Ness Inn for a bite. They were PACKED and we were worried we wouldn't get a table, but the hostesses were so helpful and found a place for us. (Call ahead if you plan to dine here) We ended up... More

We went here with friends and their Kids for dinner and were very impressed. The choice on the menu was good and very well explained as to where the food had been sourced from, and the service was good and very responsive and friendly. My only complaint was that I thought some of the portions were very small for the... More

Good food with a choice of a la carte or set menus. Seemed a bit pricey when we requested the bill but after a few pints and several whiskies we didn't think much about it until the next morning when we actually LOOKED at the bill. We were charged for an extra 22 pints of Scottish ale.

We had a great overnight stay at the Loch Ness Inn. The rooms are spacious and the food is very good and is reasonably priced. Definitely stay again on our next journey to the highlands.

We called in for early dinner and were welcomed by a guy on a phone behind the bar. Not wanting to interrupt his call we waited ( we should have left at this point ) as he chatted a very loud employee struggled to take our order then continued to have a conversation across the room about her shift patterns...

Visited this restaurant after being recommended by the locals. The scallops were to die for, but that was not the highlight. The staff are incredibly helpful and caring, thank you Kim and the guys.

Visited in January while staying in the village of Drumnadrochit. It is the only place open during off season but we really enjoyed our visit as the atmosphere was nice, relaxing and romantic. There was a fireplace but was not on/ there are wooden chairs with cushions, candles and lots of local art on the walls. We had a set... More
