    Lovely inn, great location with accessible rooms

    Lovely inn and great location, only a mile from Urquhart Castle. Accessible room and roll-in shower were good though shower has 2 ft high partitions with swing-away doors so not sure if this would work for those needing full carer assistance. Restaurant appears very popular and fully booked so we had dinner at nearby Benleva which turned out to be an unexpectedly excellent foodie experience. Breakfast included at inn was excellent. Staff were not super friendly but they were efficient and responsive. Would consider using as a base for future visits to the area.

    Pleasant stay in Loch Ness

    The staff at the inn were very friendly and made the experience even better. The accommodation was clean and just what I was expecting. The rooms themselves were quite old, but to be expected from a quaint inn such as this. The restaurant has a small but tasty selection for dinner -- be sure to make reservations upon check in as they can be quite busy.

    A Mixed Bag

    Check-in was quick and easy. The room was clean and comfortable, plenty of hot water and towels. Bed was comfortable and there was coffee, etc. in the room. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was a mixed bag. Dinner service was very good during the meal, fast and efficient. The food was very good, came out hot and was great quality. And then - nothing. Everything suddenly stopped. Waited 27 minutes for our waitress to come back and clear the table and ask about dessert. Nothing. Finally stopped another worker for a dessert menu. She brought one, and left. No one ever came to see if we wanted dessert. Finally asked for our bill for dinner after a 30 minute wait. As we were leaving, our original waitress reappeared, but never came to our table. Very strange. No dessert was no big deal, but to completely stop service was very annoying.

    Even though this property isn't on the Loch Ness, the location is a short walk to the Loch and Urquhart Castle is a short hike. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant menu for all meals was awesome.
