A little gem of an Inn beside Loch Ness
What can i say about this place? we were blown away when we arrived, it's such a charming, warm inn. A quaint stone building that has retained its old world charm while incorporating every modern convenience When we entered to check in we instantly saw that the owners had spent alot of money in refurbishing and updating the building. We are a family of 4, we booked a family room and were delighted to find that it was two interconnecting rooms. Rooms were small (in keeping with the traditional style of the house). Tv in each room , coffee and tea facilities as well. The water pressure in the shower was amazing. Food in the restaurant was delicious, modern twists on traditional dishes and plenty of options for vegan, vegetarian and gluten free. The staff were friendly, helpful and polite, great with the kids. The bar has outside seating with a tv and heaters. Great value for money and close the the epicentre of loch ness attractions. We can not recommend this inn enough. By far the best place we stayed in scotland. We will return!

Unfortunate Choice
We made a poor choice. The Inn was too far from Inverness where we wanted to be. We felt under pressure to book at the Inn's restaurant for dinner every night when we did not want that. The rooms were too claustrophobic for the price.

Lovely inn, very welcoming staff and good food. The room was very comfortable, although we could hear the shower in the room next door. Overall would recommend highly.
