We stayed one night at the Lovat Hotel while I attended the Fort Augustus Feis. Everything about our stay was excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive but not in your face. The hotel is beautiful, cozy and tastefully decorated. We had breakfast there and it was gorgeously presented and so tasty. It was excellent value for money and I...

What a fantastic hotel, the room is perfect and the food is out of the park. With local produce on the menu with a modern twist, for my tastes it was perfect. The staff are attentive and professional without being overbearing An excellent choice of drinks with local (Scottish) breweries on the list and other, local suppliers from Scotland listed...

We stayed here before Christmas. The atmosphere was warm and memorable. We had a great breakfast, chatted with the hostesses and got warm cookies wrapped in brown paper for the road. Came upon this hotel via Nordic.

After a lovely time at Valentines, my wife and I decided to treat ourselves to a few days at Christmas at the Lovat. We arrived on Christmas Eve and were shown up to our room (the same as our last visit which was nice) and invited down to the lounge for a welcome cuppa after our journey. We enjoyed our...

On a 3 week tour of Scotland we picked The Lovat for Hogmanay. Warmly greeted, beautifully decorated, lovingly furnished and cared for we had a comfortable room, generously proportioned with a view over the Green. Cleanest bathroom throughout our holiday with great amenities. Cosy lounges with a very pretty Christmas tree and a lovely fire to enjoy. The food was...

A return visit after about 10 years, and things have only improved. The friendly service is better and the food is even more interesting in the fine dining and excellent in the bistro.The rooms dont seem to have changed and still have the strange sky tv link to the bathroom. The rooms could do with double glazing but I am...

Visiting Scotland from Australia, we splashed out on a Hogmanay event at the Lovat Hotel. What a fabulous experience! The staff were dressed up, we had cocktails by the fire when we arrived, an incredibly creative gourmet dinner (with many symbolic nods to the occasion), traditional Scottish dancing to follow, a gift bag full of traditional Hogmanay items (and a...

Great location and fabulous Scottish hospitality. We had a room overlooking the Loch which was spacious and spotless. Quirky and full of charm with lots of lovely touches. My husband and stayed for a couple of days dinner bed and breakfast. The food was very good and we enjoyed playing board games in front of the log fire after dinner....
