We stayed 4 nights on a coach holiday and found the staff very friendly and helpful however we did have issues in our room. The scatter cushions were stained and we had them removed. The sofa was extremely tired and needed replacing. In fact we didn't even sit on it because we didn't like the look of it, being covered...

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review. I would like to reassure you that a replacement sofa is on order. I have spoken to housekeeping but you will appreciate that you were here during a very warm and dry period at the start of the pollen season and with open windows there will always be...

Thank God I only had to stay here one night as part of a coach tour. My bedroom was sleazy with a curtain hanging off the rail, a greasy-looking and completely useless piece of cloth at the end of the single bed, dirt on the dressing table area and wallpaper coming away from the wall. I wouldn't walk on the...

Every one is entitled to their opinion and I am sorry that we did not meet with your expectations. As you so rightly mentioned the curtain was missing a hook but this had been rectified the following morning by maintenance.

Hotel comfortable and clean. Breakfast, food good but staff do need to get organised a bit better. Evening meal. Food is ok. Most of it appears to be processed, so the home cooked feel is absent. I clean my plate but others did not. The deserts are the same each night. But, you can ask for ice cream or cheese...

Thank you for your review. I can assure you that we use fresh produce and the emphasis is very much on homestyle cooking. Some of the items on the sweet trolley are on each evening due to their popularity but there are 7 choices to pick from.

Reception not what had expected. When we eventually found someone to attend reception we were met with blank faces about our booking. Eventually sorted. Room spacious and room facilities good. Evening meal not bad and pudding trolley was worth top marks. Mostly foreign staff but better trained than at sister hotel at Broadford and waiters did a very good job....

My husband and I stayed here with our border collie for two nights dinner, bed and breakfast. Yes the hotel is dated in places but we had a big room with a very modern bathroom. The shower was fantastic. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. We even got a packed lunch to go on our walk on the...

The staff at this hotel were so friendly, caring and helpful. I thought they really stood out, even if the internet access at the hotel didn't. The room was clean and had everything in it that we needed - really appreciated the heated towel warmers.

Many thanks for your review and your kind comments about my staff. I am surprised that you had issues with the internet as this has not been a problem since our new system was put in throughout the hotel but we will monitor it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For true Highland hospitality come to the Highlander, a hotel renowned for its good food and warm welcome. The hotel is an ideal base for touring the North of Scotland with mountain ranges, forests, lochs and river valleys waiting to be explored. Wind down in our inviting restaurant serving an array of dishes made from locally sourced produce. Perhaps a wee dram from the bar would suit; choose a whisky from one of the many local distilleries for which this area is famous for throughout the world. ... more   less
