This is a small and really homely hotel with a very warm and friendly welcome. We had a compact, but extremely cosy and comfortable en-suite room on the top floor. The rooms are located above a very civilized pub with really friendly locals and atmosphere. This great pub is run by the super helpful and friendly hotel hosts and continues... More

This is one of a few places to eat if you visit Loch Ness (Fort Augustus). We had a nice meal (fish and chips) and a tasty pint of Tennants. The staff was nice and cheerful, as a local pub should be really.

We stood at the bar the whole time and chatted to a local and the staff. Would highly recommend it as a local pub with great... More

We stayed here after walking part of our trip along the Great Glen Way. We were tired and sore but got a warm welcome. We used a baggage service to deliver our luggage and they kindly placed the bags in the room well before we arrived so was nice not taking them upstairs. The room was cosy and comfortable, especially... More

Fantastic location in lovely Fort Augustus with friendly staff, clean and cosy rooms and a decent sized fry-up / help-yourself breakfast. Car parking around the corner through a side entrance road near the lochs.
