Bay Highland Hotel
Ranked #1 of 7 Hotels in Strathpeffer
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 March 2012

This is my 6th stay at the Highland Hotel so I may be a bit biased, a basic country hotel, with no pretence of stars or awards, but good food, pleasant staff, interesting entertainment and high standards of care by experienced staff, these standards upheld even though the manager was on leave.

Room Tip: You can upgrade to superior rooms

Went on Shearings Inclusive break for 5 days with 2 friends. Absolutely wonderful break, yes some of the rooms may be a little tired but they were spotlessly clean. Lovely comfortable lounges . Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Food excellent and plentiful. Due to the new drinks system luckily there was no abuse of the system. Great entertainment in the evening, both Raymond and Ronnie were excellent, great singing voices and really funny comedians. Highland dancing on one evening was a treat.
Well done Shearings, fantastic value for money,

Value for money is what we do best. It’s nice to hear you found your room spotless. Again it’s so nice the staff get a special mention for been friendly and helpful. Then new drinks system seems to work very well and we are getting a lot of positive feedback from our guests.
I’m really glad you and your friends enjoyed the break. Hopefully you will visit us again soon.
Kind Regards

We went with Shearing’s on a five day break on the 05/03/2012
Absolute bargain,
Hotel is well run all staff really work hard to ensure everybody has a good break
A big thank you to Rita in the dining room for the pleasant service she provided
Food was good and a choice of four meals are provided every evening
We stayed in a bargain room it was cleaned everyday and warm,
Upgrade to a better room if you can afford it but be assured the rooms are not too bad
A big well done also to the Manager who was helping out in the bar, collecting glasses and doing numerous jobs to again ensure everybody had a good time
Entertainment was fantastic especially Ronnie Ross
Well done to ALL the staff at the Highland Hotel

Room Tip: Rooms looking over the village have better veiws

Food excellent, entertainment good but accommodation very very tired. Were on a 3 day break and got an excellent price with shearings, so felt coud not complain too much. Was moved to a slightly better room after asking, but overall standard of housekeeping is poor. Cobwebs on ceiling trailing to curtains, dust on bedside lamps, one bath handle missing and one tap head missing! Bed linen clean otherwise I would have had a major problem staying there. Food & staff make the place. I would not have been happy if I had paid full price for my stay!

We've stayed at this hotel three times & the last time was special offer on price & the Hotel was fully booked, What we can't understand the bar was free from 7.30pm till 10,30pm & the amount of certain guests that abused the the number of time they went to the bar was disgrace & in the restaurant certain guest abused amount of table wine while dining, I am pleased each guest now will get four vouchers.
The hotel was very good & service was excellent the Manger & his staff really did well in coping with the amount of guests

Room Tip: Upgrade to Superior Room, Corner Suites are good

Due to such good value special offers the Hotel can get fully booked so it’s always advisable to book early. We have introduced a new voucher system for the included drinks and the feedback from our guests has been excellent the vouchers can be used at anytime during the day rather than between 7.30pm till 10.30 pm. This has reduced the busy periods on the bar allowing us to provide better service.
I’m glad you found service excellent and hoping you will visit again soon.

we stayed 3 nights at the highland Hotel on a self drive stay with Shearings and we enjoyed
our stay very much.
Entertainment was good especially Ronnie Ross.
Food was good and all the staff all very friendly.
The only thing that let it down was finding out that the duvets covers are not changed after each guest leaves but just routinely changed, its just the top and bottom sheet are changed.
That for me was the only thing I found to be not to my liking and to be honest would make me think twice about returning.

Recently spent a three night break here & found it very comfortable & enjoyable. All staff were most welcoming, pleasant & friendly throughout our stay. The bedroom & en suite were clean, warm & comfortable & the food was first class with a good choice on the different menu offered each night. Entertainment was very good & overall it was excellent value for money. We would definitely think of going back to this hotel. The public areas on the ground floor could be improved with more adequate heating.
