“Lovely hotel with great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

Stayed for two nights over the Easter weekend and got a great deal through KGB Deals.

The place is lovely, slight overload on the tartan but this is the Highlands so I guess only to be expected. The lounge and bar with open fire is really very welcoming and comfortable and the free WiFi is good, although it didn't quite reach our room which was a bit of a disappointment.

The room was a good size, no double bed despite asking for one only to be told they are all "Twins", any booked as a double just seem to have the two singles pushed together. Apart from that it was fine and very clean. Bit chilly overnight but we had a heater in our room which took the edge off.

Overall, a very pleasant hotel.

Very friendly and very Scottish, from the friendly welcome and the decor to the food and location. Just a quick drive, or a pleasant walk to Urquhart Castle.

This was the hotel for our Contiki tour. The rooms were decent, bathrooms were really nice but the tv didnt work. The restaurant was great- friendly staff, amazing food (the shoulder of lamb is delicious!). The bar and sitting area was great.. it felt like we were at home. The wifi was free, but quite slow and could only be picked up in certain spots in the lobby/bar. Good location, easy to get into town, and there was a gift shop right beside the hotel.

We arrived in Loch Ness after a long drive and had no accommodation. After an initial call we we able to book two rooms at short notice. The staff were welcoming and warm. The open fire in the bar was inviting and staff very friendly. The restaurant food was excellent with the best Scotch Broth I've had.
I loved the tartan carpet and the rooms were neat and clean. Could do with a TV upgrade would be my only suggestion.

Loch Ness Lodge Hotel was disappointing. The rooms were old, tired and very dark. Our room at £129 for two nights including breakfast was poor, the view was none existent over the back of the hotel roof and the loch was nowhere in sight, despite specifically asking for a room with a view during a very quiet weekend! The television with four dodgy channels should not be in the room and the tea making facilities was a very old kettle plugged into a socket on the floor. The oversized table lamps made the room feel even smaller and cramped but still did not light it sufficiently.The breakfast was enjoyable, but some of the staff left a lot to be desired. I would not book this hotel again,

We were stuck in a squall and couldn't find camping at the bottom of the bay. Night fell and so we beached our kayaks and walked up to find this Hotel. Rewarding in the extreme, from the front desk to really nicely appointed room to the bar and restaurant. Staff and lodging were all excellent. Evening food was great too. Breakfast not so excellent but the hot chocolate was great.

Special mention to the lady at the front desk who didn't look twice at the wetsuits and gear and even offered to take them to be dried for the morning, which we gratefully accepted. She was unfailingly polite and helpful. We really felt welcome.

Room was very comfortably appointed with new bathroom, piping hot water and no lack of pressure. Bar and restaurant were as over the top hunting lodge, Scottish style as you'll ever see, but that's what you're here for anyway right? If you want Marriott then stay in London or New York. Personally I loved the dark wood and tartan everywhere.

Only downer was the surroundings outside the front door, which is Nessie playground for kids. A bit weird but ignore that and this place is a little gem.

Would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a twin which was excellent.
