This was my first visit to MacKays Hotel - well worth a visit. The Room (which was in the Annexe) was very comfortable; although at the front of the Hotel it was very quiet. The food was very good; the Staff were excellent - very helpful and friendly.

We've stayed here about 10 times now (over 3 years) as we have work in the area. The hotel is "what you see on the tin". We booked with Easy Breaks and dinner bed and breakfast at around £24 per person is exceptional value. I've payed £100+ for inferior accommodation in some places. Staff are hard working and friendly. Highly...

Four night stay, Urquhart tour. Basic facilities, but clean & comfortable. Food more than adequate from limited choice menu. Staff friendly and helpful. Good location in centre of village, convenient for touring the district.

Visited in February 2017. Hotel was clean and well decorated. Old fashioned furniture but good sized room and bathroom. We were located in the lodge at rear. Breakfasts were OK, but dinner was disappointing. Limited choice, overcooked vedgetables, steak (as in pie) a little tough and tasteless. Although dinner was included, we visited an excellent local restaurant the next evening.
