      The most child friendly hotel I have stayed. Will surely go back for the food. I had my best meal there. The Halibut with the seafood chowder.

      The rooms only have showers, my baby is not too keen to shower so a bath would have been an extra bonus.

      A nice hotel in a nice location. The staff were helpful and friendly. The low cost laundry service was much needed, cheers. Resaurant food was good quality.

      The lovat is great but steer clear of the red restaurant in town, the food is well below acceptable. Try to only dine at the Lovat.

      Everything at The Lovat was absolutely fine. However, when the time comes to pay £175 for Dinner, Bed & Breakfast (for one person for one night in April) you think "wow - was that really worth £175". No problems - just reflecting on Value-for-Money.

      When I booked this hotel I put a little note in to say we would be cycling and could we have somewhere to leave our bikes please. As we cycled towards the hotel after a very long day in the saddle one of the staff appeared at the front door and took our bikes straight round to a shed and helped us store them for the night. Now that's what I call service !! What makes this hotel so great is the staff. Everyone we met was genuine and engaged in this business. Whoever owns this hotel is doing a great job of people management as far too often in the hotel business you find low paid low motivation people doing the bare minimum. Not at the Lovat !! Everyone we met throughout our stay was simply brilliant and although we didn't have the pleasure of meeting the chef I would have to say his efforts were simply outstanding. The meal we had on the Saturday evening was without question one of the best dining experiences I've ever had for the price we paid. I've eaten out lots and I'm lucky eneough to have been all over the world with business and family and all too often been over charged and over sold when it comes to fine dining. Not at the Lovat !! Get youself along to this hotel soon.

      If you are looking for a top end luxury experience then this probably isn't the place however if you are looking for great people and great food this place is as 5 star as it gets. All to often top end hotels are over rated anyway. Get along to the Lovat and love it for what it is. It isn't pretending to be anything its not, it isn't promising anything that it doesn't deliver and beyond. The Lovat has restored my faith in Scotland. Thank you and well done to whoever owns this hotel, you are doing a great job.

      The best thing about the hotel was its location, its welcoming nature of the staff, the room was of high standard and overall the Hotel was a good place just to relax, read and enjoy a good holiday.

    • Family with children

      Fantastic food and surroundings; comfortable beds

      Very hard to control room temperature in the lodges - our room was very hot and stuffy during the night and due to midges/security we felt we couldn't sleep with the window open - maybe the cleaners could ensure windows are left open all day to air vacant lodges. I would stay in the main building next time. Maybe the management would also consider reserving the parking spaces outside the lodges for the lodge occupiers as headlights shine right into the rooms if others come and go for the restaurant late in the evening.

      Very Quaint. Excellent Breakfast. Warm Friendly Staff. Excellent value for the money. Super Internet Availability.

      Directions on Google don't get you exactly there, but close. Everything else was good to great.

      The Lovat is a beautiful hotel in a lovely town. It was a great location from which to explore Fort Augustus and Loch Ness. We would have liked to stay longer than the couple of nights that we spent there. We were pleasantly pleased with the community. This is a much better town to explore Loch Ness from than Inverness. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Also, the breakfast buffet was the best of our vacation.

      We felt that the restaurant was overpriced for the community, and learned that the in town options were more affordable.

      From the moment we checked in until the time we checked out, the staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. The room was clean and extremely comfortable. Meals at the hotel restaurant were excellent. We arrived late and had dinner at the restaurant. The selections were varied; the food was delicious. We were amazed to see the selections of food available to us for breakfast which were included in the room rate; the portions were sufficient to last until dinner and the quality of the food at breakfast equaled the exceptional quality of the food we had for dinner.

    • Older travelers

      Our Family has ties to the Village & Abbey going back more than a century so the main attraction is location.

      For a Hotel of the Standard we did think it was somewhat "Penny Pinching" when the cooked breakfast requested was Egg, Haggis, Black Pudding, Potato Scone and what was delivered to the table was Egg, Half a slice of Haggis, HAlf a Slice of Black Pudding and a small piece of scone. Two pieces of Toast for two people is also a bit mean.

    • Older travelers

      Fabulous food although limited menu due to time of year. Staff great. Rooms excellent. Great price for winter but not sure I would pay summer rate of 160+ per night. All in all was superb

    • Older travelers

      The staff were all very friendly and accommodating, attentive to our needs. Breakfast was superb. The hotel is very welcoming and has a very comfy lounge with log fire. A nice touch was a parting gift of cookies for the journey home!

      Would have liked the option of a cheaper menu - it was a little on the pricey side for every day.

      Excellent staff. Friendly, attentive, nice. Well equiped rooms. Very nice breakfast. Beautifull lounge, fire place, magazines, games. Free coffee on arrival.
