The Steadings, I wouldn't call it a hotel, but more like a home, away from home. A super friendly, warm and homely feel like countryside hotel at Inverness- Loch Ness. The hotel is made like a country house, which has 9 bedrooms, a cozy bar, dining room and a beautiful lounge area, and of course to add to all this you are warmly welcomed by the resident hosts David and Mary Allen.
This hotel is situated amidst the spectacular mountains of Loch Ness and is secluded from the city, and at the same time not very far from the main city of Inverness- which is a 20 minute drive.
The hotel owners, David and Mary have very imaginatively and creatively done up the hotel. Every corner of the hotel speaks loads of character. For example, the beds have a large teddy bear, so it totally excites children coming with families. The beds have bed posts and frills so it adds a very Victorian look to the rooms. The stone walls and beamed ceilings give a very warm look to the entire place.
And to add to all this Mary really pampers you and gives you such a motherly and warm treatment that you just don’t want to leave the hotel.
David manages the kitchen and he is superb in his culinary creations- do try the lamb shanks in rosemary, and the chicken supreme cooked in mushroom and creme sauce, and the veg tagine . All the ingredients used are freshly bought daily from the local market and produced right at your table. The breakfast is so home like, eggs- made to order, porridge, sausage, hash brown and hot crispy toasts.
The cozy bar is stocked with the finest highland whiskeys and good collections of wines, and then you also have the warm hosts accompanying you for a drink.
We were 3 families with kids, and visited the hotel in May 2015, and if we ever come back to Inverness, we would only and only reside here again and again.
Still miss Mary and her warm attitude towards her guests and her extremely interesting and stimulating conversations.
