We stayed 3 nights in October. The hotel, a refurbished old hunting lodge, overlooks Loch Ness. The weather was mostly pleasant but the day it rained might have been the nicest of all. We sat in the lounge, near a crackling fire, reading-- so warm and cozy we couldn't have been more relaxed. But we eventually had to get up... More

We stayed one night at the Inch Hotel when roadtripping in Scotland, and we loved every second! Rooms were cozy, the hotel decor felt very scottish and the food was excellent! We saw Loch Ness from our window, and the horses beneath the hotel added the extra touch. I would definitly stay here again!

Although the decor is a bit tired, this hotel is a great place to explore Loch Ness. The hotel welcomes dogs, which is a great thing for us. The food was fantastic and the staff were extremely attentive.

Awesome food. Cozy and friendly atmosphere. Attentive staff. Great hiking trails out back with spectacular vistas. Or if you're the indoor type, sit in the lounge sipping scotch by the fireplace. You can also search for the Loch Ness monster as the Inch overlooks the Loch Ness. Nearby Fort Augustus is a quaint and friendly town. Offering a great place... More
