Just stayed one night, in May, 2016, but it was a memorable one. Adult daughter had the downstairs single and I shared the upstairs room with hubby, but no other guests, so we had the whole place to ourselves. Phil and Claire could not have been kinder, better hosts! Nicely appointed rooms and bathrooms, and that breakfast room is just... More

We stayed here while walking the Great Glen Way in May. Cost was 65 pounds. Check-in wasn't until 4 pm but we arrived at 2 pm and saw Claire in the front yard weeding and she graciously let us check-in. It was great to be able to shower and change before we went out to explore the town. The room... More

The Holt must be one of the best B&Bs I have ever stayed in. From the room and the welcome to the comfort and the service. Its location is ideal, just off the canal and its locks and within walking distance to numerous pubs and restaurants. The welcome and service is top notch. Phil and Clare go that extra mile... More

This was our best B&B on the Great Glen Way and I am hard pushed to think of anywhere better in all our travels for such a reasonable price.

We stayed here as part of a tour to the Highlands from Edinburgh, and The Holt was wonderful! Phil and Clare were gracious hosts with a beautiful property. Phil took the time to orient us to the area, gave us a map and gave my husband directions for a nearby running trail. The B&B was situated directly across the street... More
