Quality hotel in city centre. Beautifully decorated in a Scottish baronial style - lots of tartan, mahogany paneling and historical artifacts. We ate in the bistro where the service was pleasant and efficient. The menu was not extensive but sufficient for our need. The meal was piping hot, tasted good and competitively priced.

We stayed in Beauly for a couple of days seeing friends for their engagement party. We loved the grand exterior of the Lovat Arms. Whilst the interior was somewhat old-fashioned and perhaps a little bit tired for some tastes, it delivered everything we wanted. Beauly is so clearly a step back in time in most respects so we felt the... More

When I learned that we were to go to my sister in law’s birthday celebrations at Bunchrew Caravan Park, which required a two night stay in nearby Beauly as we had to travel over 200 miles to get there, I was immediately attracted to The Lovat Arms Hotel having been a regular customer there in the 1970s and 1980s as...

We had stopped for a pub dinner on our way home from a long trip. The menu had a good variety of entrees and we both enjoyed our choices. I liked the potato skins with BBQ sauce and cheese with a salad. The waitress made us feel welcome and it was a very relaxing break.

For the price of this hotel I was expecting a bit better looking room. It was clean enough but tired and old fashioned and needing refurbished. The water was like warm when I went for a shower. Dinner was ok but menu didn't have much choice. Very cheap though. In the corridor they have used a rug as a curtain... More

I've stayed at the Lovat many times in the past but only stayed on this occasion as the Priory was full. At £70 very good value. The rooms are a wee bit outdated but the tartan decor must go down well with the foreign tourist. The meals are we're very good and the staff, rushed off their feet, were excellent.... More

We decided to try this hotel for an evening meal. I was a bit dubious as the décor is rather historic - probably to suit those who stop here on coach tours. However the food was excellent, good sized portions, not overpriced and served by pleasant staff. We will return.

The Lovat has undergone some good re-furbishment work on it's main public areas. However the bedrooms leave a bit to be desired. They are tired as are the hallway carpets which have pulled away from the carpet grips at doorways and create a tripping hazard. The shower in my room was a hand held one which did not work when...

We were grateful to manage to get the last room when we booked this hotel in June. The area was very busy because of The Highland Cross and Rod Stewart was appearing in concert. The smallish en suite room was comfortable with twin beds put together. The decor had a tartan theme although it was a bit dated and the... More

Despite the fact that a large party of thirty- three was in the main dining room and another party of eleven had also just arrived, we were served quickly and efficiently. The meal was good and enjoyed by both of us.
