This hotel was the perfect location for us as we wanted somewhere close to the Loch Ness Exhibition and we had a cruise booked picking up from the shop next door. Yes the room was dated but it was clean and decent sized all we needed for the night. Shower was good and we had plenty of hot water. The...

We stayed one night here as a part of a pre-booked tour. The outside of the hotel is quaint and the lounge is very comfortable, which is good, because it's the only place you can access the free wifi. We spent several hours sitting and visiting there because the rooms are dated and, for lack of a better word, tired....

Thank you for your Review. I'm sorry you didn't have a comfortable night with us but happy to hear that you found the lounge accommodating. The issue with the Wifi I'm afraid is due to the age of the building and it's construction. Our router is at reception but because the walls are two feet thick and built of solid...

The Loch Ness Lodge Hotel failed to meet our expectations in every way. It was horrible. We had a two night prepaid, nonrefundable package deal through a travel agency. It was so bad that we just forfeited the money for the second night and went to Inverness. We should have taken a taxi right away, but instead we tried to...

Thank you for taking time to review The Loch Ness Lodge Hotel. I'm sorry that you found your stay so unpleasant. I personally check the bedrooms regularly but as yet have not found any signs of damp, however I'm sure if this had been flagged up at reception we would have moved you to another room more to your liking....

I had an overnight stopover here in October 2013, and I am legitimately in two minds about what direction to take with this review. Do I let my big 'no no' experience outweigh the goods of this hotel? Or am I able to forgive it this once and rate the hotel on its overall merits.. On the one hand, the...

Thank you for your well written review, it actually made me chuckle! It sounds like on the whole you enjoyed your stay but you weren't keen on old fashioned keys or the lack of hot water. Firstly, yes the keys are old fashioned but as you say they keep the rooms safe. The hot water, I can only apologise. As...

We stayed in the family room while walking The a Great Glen Way, lovely warm welcome despite arriving soaked. More than adequate room and great hospitality. Breakfast cooked to order and just what we needed.

Thank you so much for reviewing The Loch Ness Lodge Hotel. I'm glad we provided some warmth and cheer when you arrived in soaked and gave a good breakfast to get you out on your walk.

Pulled up in the carpark - looked great. Checked in and headed to the room - impressive heritage building decorated tastefully. Went for a drink in the Bar/Lounge - very cosy and nice. That's where it ended. A busload of under 35's on tour managed to set off the fire alarm by running hot showers with the bathroom door open...

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay here. It has taken me some time to reply as I wanted to make sure that I could update on the steps we have now put in place to make sure that private guests are not inconvenienced by tour groups. Tour groups are a vital part of our seasonal business and therefore...

Check in was friendly but slow and the room smelled "dusty". OK, it's 700 years old, but it shouldn't smell like the last occupant was still in there! The bathroom was small and basin was stained. While dinner and breakfast were OK, the wait was unnecessarily long since there were not a million people dining at the time. It's a...

Took forever to check in, the room was freezing and the radiator didn't t work. Although the hotel is non smoking our room was absolutely reeking of smoke, I'm sure it was due to staff smoking on the fire escape which was just outside our room. We didn't eat there as we were advised not to by another resident but...

I'm slightly puzzled by your review as The Loch Ness Lodge Hotel closed for the season at the end of October 2013. There are a few establishments in the local area with similar names - perhaps you stayed there?

We were left waiting just to check in, then never got anyone on reception by phone or in person, managed to get a table but got bread with no butter, no salt and pepper ran out of wine etc....

Thank you for your review of The Loch Ness Lodge Hotel. Good to hear that you liked the hotel itself , apologies for your experience of reception, all I can say is that we are a seasonal hotel and in early May we had just taken on new staff who perhaps weren't quite up to speed.

A very enjoyable dinner, bed and breakfast stop over whilst in the highlands on business. Excellent soup and steak with some local Loch Ness Brewery beer to wash it down! A comfortable bed and a decent shower. I'll be back with the family the next time.
