Bunchrew House Hotel 4 stars

Inverness

In 20 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens and woodland, on the shores of the Beauly Firth near Inverness, this 17th-century Scottish mansion is now a luxurious 4-star country house hotel. Free parking is available at this hotel, and there are Tesla and non-Tesla electric car charging points on-site. Falling ill the night before, we booked last minute, because we had to stay in Inverness an additional night. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable, all staff was very helpful and kind. I wish we could have stayed an additional night to truly enjoy the lovely setting.

Achnagairn Estate 5 stars

Beauly

An array of activities including hiking, cycling, skiing, whisky trails and a cruise down Loch Ness can be enjoyed with Achnagairn Lodges as your base. Glen Affric, Urquhart Castle, the Caledonian Canal and three Championship Golf courses lie within a 45-minute drive. Inverness’ Airport is located 35 minutes away by car. Absolutely perfect👍. The lodge is perfectly equiped, big rooms with comfortable bed ( for someone maybe little bit soft). The cleanness was perfect. We appreciate service of night manager Jurij when we came very late for checkin and nice breakfast with super assortment. Thank you!! We spent here very nice time.

The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and a credit to the hotel.

The Lovat, Loch Ness 4 stars

Fort Augustus

This charming family-run hotel is situated in the beautiful Scottish Highlands, just off the A82 and close to the banks of the famous Loch Ness. It offers free internet, free parking on site, and a restaurant. The room we were put in was a pet friendly room, and it was very nicely arranged. Nice comfortable mattress, a great modern television that we could watch the premier of Game of Thrones by hooking our laptop into its HDMI input. The coffee in the room is a nespresso machine, which we use at home (quite the extra mile with that one). The shower room was spacious and worked perfectly. Everywhere we went the staff was amazingly welcoming and nice, and the hotel itself had a relaxing modern, yet non-pretentious decor to it. We stayed in nearly 10 hotels during our Highland road-trip, and only the Lovat Hotel bartender knew how to make our favourite cocktail, an old-fashioned, and he made a good one! The Lovat pretty much hit all the right notes for us on every level.
