Everything about the Lovat was great from start to finish ( & our revisit as I left my purse and they kindly called to let me know!). Staff were welcoming and without exception smiling, helpful and charming. The bar man deserves a special mention although I could not bring myself to try him winning cocktail with an egg! We were...

Very good food, and excellent service in the Brasserie, which is nicely appointed and welcoming. Only heard one native accent over the whole three-day visit, and the European staff were friendly, efficient and very well-trained - do hope the Brexit deal doesn't deprive them of their livelihoods, or their adventures in a foreign land. The room was comfortable and a...

Stayed here with my partner for a few nights a couple of weeks ago. Lovely hotel with nice ales and gins on the bar. We were in the annex building which was really nice, really comfy bed and a wet room shower.

Superb venue, fantastic food and lovely atmosphere. Not the cheapest, but you truly do get what you pay for. Very professionally run and cozy hotel. Comfortable rooms and decent facilities. Superb pack lunch on offer as well. Breakfasts are pretty much the same wherever you go, but, not here! Amazing array on offer.

Stopped for meeting and coffee (everything seemed to be closed in the area!). Excellent espresso served with biscuit. Very friendly welcome and service - so good we returned later for excellent lunch. Good value sandwich served with fresh leaves and great chips. Would definitely stop here again.

We stayed one night at the Lovat Hotel while I attended the Fort Augustus Feis. Everything about our stay was excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive but not in your face. The hotel is beautiful, cozy and tastefully decorated. We had breakfast there and it was gorgeously presented and so tasty. It was excellent value for money and I...

What a fantastic hotel, the room is perfect and the food is out of the park. With local produce on the menu with a modern twist, for my tastes it was perfect. The staff are attentive and professional without being overbearing An excellent choice of drinks with local (Scottish) breweries on the list and other, local suppliers from Scotland listed...

This was our 2nd visit to the Lovat, stayed same time last year to celebrate our birthdays. Took advantage of the 3 for 2 DB&B offer advertised last year. As the hotel had only just opened the day before after the new year break we were able to get into our room when we arrived. My husband had arranged for...

Came here on New Year's Day for an unplanned lunch. Very accommodating staff and beautiful well presented food, even got talked into a quiz after our meal which was actually good fun. Very pleasant experience and will be sure to return

We stayed here before Christmas. The atmosphere was warm and memorable. We had a great breakfast, chatted with the hostesses and got warm cookies wrapped in brown paper for the road. Came upon this hotel via Nordic.
