New extension is sensational
After staying at this hotel a while ago on business I returned recently to find that they have built a new accomadation wing. This new addition is of the highest standard and as a regular business traveller I have never be so impressed by the design, decoration and standard f finish.
This coupled with the usual friendly attentive staff and excellent food and drink make me think that this must be the business travellers destination of choice for Inverness.
Just back from a holiday in the highlands and stayed at this hotel, and I couldn't have been happier with the hotel itself, the bar and restaurant or the the very attentive staff. The hotel is in a great location as well so was the ideal base for our trips to local spots as well (the management staff provided some really good suggestions as well for outings in the local area). Will defintely be returning to this hotel when in the area in future.
I stayed in this hotel a few months back, on the recommendation of a friend. The setting is ideal: picturesque surroundings and not too far from the city centre. I was also impressed by how polite and helpfull the staff were. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.
Friendly staff, great food and good service
Stayed at this hotel on business about 1 month ago. It is everything I look for in a hotel when travelling on business, friendly staff, great food and good service . It is one of these hotels that are prepared to go the extra mile to ensure that you have a good stay. All in all a great hotel and I would recommend Lochardil House to anyone. So much so that I will be taking my wife at some point in the new year.
A Perfect End to a Perfect Weekend.
I booked this amazing hotel as a birthday treat for my new fiance and I - another example of how using Trip Advisor paid off.
For my proposal, I wanted something picturesque and romantic - something that Lochardil House Hotel delivered in abundance. The hotel is a classic country house building but has every mod con you would expect from a modern hotel. The staff could not have done enough for me and helped me out a great deal with my preparations for my proposal. Dining was everything we could hope for - attention to detail and service from a very discreet staff made us feel a million pounds! The whole weekend was a wonderful experience for both of us.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel's experience - will definitely book a return visit.
Only good thing in Inverness
I have, through no fault of my own, found myself trapped in Inverness with work. I found this hotel using tripadvisor and I have been very happy with it: the rooms are great, the staff couldn't be more helpful and the food is brilliant.
Great Hotel, Lovely Staff, Would recommend to Everyone!!!
My husband and I stayed at this delightfully characteristic hotel for almost a week back in October and found it to be exceptional.
The hotel itself is a beautiful old house that had been converted and tastefully upgraded with modern facilities.
The staff were very attentive, helpful and extremely friendly and the management team kindly helped us with all our excursions and travel arrangements.
The meals available in the delightful conservatory were exquisite and the wine selection was very impressive meaning we rarely ate anywhere else!
We also noticed they are expanding the hotel so next time we may take all of our friends with us!!
Would Definitely Stay Again!
Was very surprised to read the previous review as we found this hotel to be the exact opposite!!
We stayed Ocotber 2005 and were not effected by the small amount of building work going on in the grounds.
Reception staff greeted us with a smile and were friendly at all times. The food was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome by all the staff AND management!
Would highly recommend this hotel and am taking my wife back to celebrate our anniversary next year.
Manager is a very rude and unpleasent person. Avoid!!
We book to stay at the LOCHARDIL HOUSE HOTEL, but found the receptionist really could not care less and was not at all helpful. Our room had a strange and unpleasant smell and overlooked a small building site.
We spoke to the unhelpful receptionist who called the manager. He was aggressive, rude and the most unpleasant person We have met for a long time. He basically told us if there were no other rooms available and if I did not like it we should leave.
We put up with the smell and the building noise, which started about 8.00am, and left never to return.
There are plenty of other hotels in Inverness. DO NOT USE THIS ONE!
Stayed with a group of friends recently, everyone had a great time and the staff are to be congratulated on being so helpful and prefessional. We would have no reservations in recommending the Lochardil House Hotel!

... and other than a bit of wind burnt rosy cheeks, we remained mostly warm/comfortable. While it started out sunny, we had one hole of the front nine with a rain shower, and two holes on the back, where it hailed :) good thing it was at our back since when you turned around, it was quite painful on the face! We also saw a rainbow on the water when a rain cloud passed by. After the round we went into the clubhouse and had some ...

But we did have a nice walk there through bushes that smelt like coconut and a lovely walk back along the beach. It was so nice to be on the beach again...even if it had no waves and you still needed a beanie.

We watched a few guys tee off then walked a little ways down the fairway then back up to the 18th green. It would have been great to play there but it is a daily lottery and if you are lucky to have your name pulled they call you with a time for the following day. Approximately £200($350)/round.

After yesterday's ride, we have no delusions about shorter distance rides being easier. Breakfast is not until 8:00am anyway, so if one of us sleeps in a little it doesn't matter. We wander down a couple of minutes after Oh my goodness!! The traditional Scottish breakfast looks like a full meal in itself. No, something a little simpler, but delicious is in order. The Lovat hotel motto is 'Loving it at the Lovat' and we have. Our stay was really comfortable and Fort Augustus ...
