Positive Reviews

Plenty of Scotland in This Hotel.

Guests who craved an authentic taste of Scotland were served it in spades at the Loch Ness Lodge,with a decor relying on a varied tartan theme. Guests were further delighted that this old-world charm was complimented with all of the necessary modern amenities for comfort, finding their rooms also to be spotlessly clean, even in the older parts of the hotel.

A Fabulous Restaurant.

Guests staying at the Loch Ness Lodge who took a bet on the in-house restaurant were very pleased that they did. Diners were highly impressed with their traditional Scottish meals, with the likes of local venison and West Coast salmon coming highly recommended. Others guests doled out praise for the charming barman, who had great knowledge of Scotch whiskies, and served wonderful cocktails.

Staff Truly Aim to Please.

Several compliments were extended to this hotel's staff, described as memorably friendly and welcoming. The bar staff were described as pleasantly chatty, making guests feel like friends, with other staff members going out of their way to help visitors feel well looked after. Based on this experience, several guests said they would stay here again.

Negative Reviews

Rooms a Little Worse For Wear.

Some guests were quite disappointed with their rooms, described as damp, smelling musty, and in need of some refurbishing and general maintenance.

Good Luck Getting Wi-Fi.

Several guests seemed to have constant trouble getting online, with a Wi-Fi connection working only some of the time from the bedrooms. Others mentioned the W-Fi only working reliably from one particular hotel common area.

Catering to Coach Loads.

Some guests were put off by an apparent priority placed on weekend trade, with too few staff available during the week. There also seemed to be an emphasis on coach groups; one in-house guest recalled being refused an egg order for brekky one morning, being told the eggs were reserved for a coach load of tourists set to arrive!
