Foyers Bay Country House
Ranked #3 of 5 Foyers B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 August 2017 via mobile

Three friends stayed here while doing Caledonia Way cycle route Inverness to Oban. The house has lovely garden/lawns surrounding, is quiet and peaceful and tucked away on the quiet side of Loch Ness (eastern). Bit of a slog to get there by bike but worth it - the chef had just walked out of the only restaurant within walking distance but the owners were very flexible and let us cook our dinner by primus outside and prewarned us about this by email which was much appreciated.
Lovely spot, a magnificent old country house - we had the rooms on the end of the second floor comprising two single beds in one room, a double with ensuite which was a tad awkward for nighttime bathroom needs but solved by using the fire door to access the bathroom downstairs in the wee hours. Lovely breakfast in a magnificent, bright conservatory.
Recommend and would definitely stay here again. Would be easier with car but definitely a nice stop for cyclists esp. if the pub reopens its restaurant.

My friend and I (and two family members) recently stayed at FBCH for three nights and it was a very nice experience. Kate was very friendly and welcoming and she and her husband had an efficient 'double act' going at breakfast time. The house is very clean and tidy and is in a very quiet location looking over the Loch. Our twin bedroom was very comfortable and offered everything we needed. We would definitely stay again if we were up that way.

This is a beautiful old house in a scenic location.
The room we booked was described as having a 'terrace'. The 'terrace' was a small fenced off area of the gravel car park just outside our room - there were a couple square feet of pavers set in the gravel and a small table and chairs, but I think calling it a terrace is a bit of a stretch and the only view from the terrace is of the cars parked adjacent to it so I really can't think why anybody would want to sit out there.

Our room was perhaps just a little larger than average size, with a 2 seater lounge and a small writing desk and chair as well as the double bed with bedside tables, and an ensuite built in the corner of the original room.

The bed was comfortable and the ensuite functional. The original room had quite a bit of character with dark wallpaper up to a dado rail and painted walls above that. The ensuite that had been built in the corner of the original room was of pine and looked completely out of character with the original parts of the room. The quality of materials and workmanship in the ensuite construction looked to be quite cheap.

Breakfast was served in a conservatory that had been added to the original house, and (although obviously more modern) this was a pleasant space and fitted with the overall character of the original house. The hot breakfast was ok (nothing really wrong with it, but not of exceptional standard either - the sausages tasted like supermarket quality).

We paid 120 pounds for our room, and I don't think that it was good value compared to other places we stayed (e.g. we stayed at High March at Drumnadrochit on the other side of the loch for a similar price and the quality of the accommodation and breakfast was much better, with the location being just as scenic as Foyers)

Room Tip: Avoid the Terrace Room: no view, and not really a terrace either!.

We loved staying at Foyers Bay Country House. It sits in a lovely spot with a nice garden, and upon arrival the first thing you see is the gorgeous resident Great Dane. The rooms are clean and well-furnished with very comfortable beds. They are stocked with coffee, tea, water bottles and a biscuit selection, which is a really nice, welcoming touch. The couple who run the place are very friendly and make a wonderful cooked breakfast in the morning. Highly recommended - even better than 37 years ago!

Very pleasant accommodation with a friendly couple. This is a beautiful old house set in a beautiful garden nearby Loch Ness. The room was cozy and clean, breakfast was very tasty, prepared with love directly by the hosts and exactly according to our wishes. Breakfast is served in a beautiful conservatory, in the evening you can sit in the cozy lounge with fireplace and taste Scotch whisky with a choice of many or wine or tea. Evening spent with our hosts chatting not only about whisky but also about Scotland was very nice, we felt like a members of family and we would like to remember this perfect moment! And few words about the location. The location is beautiful, but it is better to know, that it is only a small quiet village with one pub and a camping site. The pub is very nice and few minutes by walk from the hotel to have tasty dinner, but there's no other possibility of evening entertainment around. However, we didn't mind on our way, we were also informed about this in advance via e-mail by our hosts, so we were not surprised :-)
