We had Fruit, a small bottle of wine per person, tea, coffee, drinking chocolate, dressing gowns and single use slippers in our room. Food was very good and staff...

This is a hotel for coach trips run by the highland heritage. It's a great holiday visiting lots of places. The other reviewers are correct in all they say. BUT this is not what's said The whole place needs updating The carpets the bed linen the desks even the curtains. The dining room felt like a relic from the 70s....

We have just returned from the Ben Doran. It was a five day four night trip including trips. In total we travelled approximately over six hundred miles from leaving home. I do not know how they managed it for the total cost of £146.00 each. The hotel is extremely comfortable warm and clean. The food more than adequate offering choices...

We stayed 5 nights for the Turkey and Tinsel, the hotel was spotless, the meals excellent and all members of staff courteous and friendly. The drivers on the tours were very informative and cheerful and went out of their way to make the trips truly unforgettable. This is a very affordable way to see the Highlands with coach pick ups...
