“Very average but it worked for us”
Reviewed 31 August 2011

The outside of the building is very unimpressive - it's in the middle of a long row of shops, kind of like a strip mall. The rooms were larger than usual rooms and not uncomfortable - just not fantastic either. The shower in our bath leaked water out from the glass partition. Not much you can do about that. The restaurant was bad, and served food you might get at a bad buffet. There were large tour groups of elderly people there when we were there, and the service was so-so. This hotel worked for us because we were very tired when we arrived. Just don't think it's going to be wonderful.

My daughter and I stayed here for a wedding in the area. The hotel was fully booked as a result of two major events taking place in the Beauly area but despite this the service and attention to detail were excellent . The hotel picked us up by car at the station and also drove us back - a very welcome free service as station is outside the main town area. They were able to arrange taxis for us despite the high demand ( other guests at the wedding were not so lucky) and made us feel welcome in every way. The hotel is cosy and welcoming and very clean . The beds were extremely comfortable and an excellent breakfast is served until mid-day. Blair, Lesley and all their staff were so friendly and made us feel right at home. We also had a great evening in the hotel 's busy Comm bar - well done to the very friendly and efficient bar staff. If you are travellling in this area this hotel is a must.

Stayed in the Priory Hotel for 3 nights, and felt that it was real value for money. The hotel is very popular with visitors from France, Italy and Spain, and everyone appreciates the excellent service. Our room was modern and spacious, if a little warm and stuffy. Breakfast and dinner was very good. The hotel is in the middle of Beauly, and only 20 minutes drive from Inverness. Parking for free outside the front door. Superb scenery all around, especially in Glen Affric, which is a must see. The rate for dinner, bed and breakfast (less than £60 per person per night) represents great value. We need more hotels like this one!

Room Tip: Rooms 37 and 38 are newish.

We booked for one night, but liked it so much we stayed for two.
The hotel is in a central location and a good centre for touring.
Our ensuite room was very spacious and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and versatile. ( A small problem with the hair dryer/shaver unit was quickly dealt with). The food, both in the bar and in the restaurant was of a high quality and good value. A small bus party also stayed there, but the staff coped very well so that normal service for the other guests was unaffected.
