From the gentle bird song as you walk in to the friendly receptionists; everything about this hotel is relaxed and welcoming. I checked in myself and 5 guests for a week stay in December 2016. With snow on the ground, the hotel was warm and comfortable. Unlike many hotels, there is plenty of public seating and for guests, coffee and...

The Grant Arms Hotel is a wonderful place to stay. We took our dog Saffie who was spoilt & made such a fuss of, which made both John & I feel very relaxed. The staff are lovely. You are made to feel extremely welcome. The food is delicious. Our room was spacious & comfortable. We will definitely stay there again.

The rooms were in good condition, large, warm and very clean. The deal included Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and a Gala Dinner on Hogmany with a Caley band. The food was first class and...

The bird watching club room and evening talks were excellent making the stay more interesting. If there was one improvement I would make it would be to reinstate the open fires and refurnish the lounge/bar with comfy seating.

My wife and I went on our first outing with Highlandubbers, and parked up for the night in a nearby camping site. The Grant Arms was chosen for our celebratory dinner. There was about sixteen in our group and we were immediately welcomed by the staff where we were shown into their large lounge for a few pre-meal drinks. Bang...
