    Historical Traveler Reviews Bunchrew House Hotel Inverness

    The best hotel in Inverness

    from

    I was married at the Bunchrew Hotel in 1994 and the setting and staff were fantastic. We booked the whole hotel for my family from Glasgow and to this day we still have people saying it was the best wedding ever. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a romantic break and we are hoping to stay again this year to celebrate our 10th anniversary!!!!!!

    Wonderful unforgettable weekend at Bunchrew

    from

    We had an absolutely magnificent wedding at Bunchrew House in August 2003. The setting was perfect, the staff very accomodating and professional, the meals delicious, and the rooms were wonderful. A truly fairytale wedding. We had so much fun at Bunchrew and highly recommend it!

    Fantastic wedding at Bunchrew House

    from

    We held our small, intimate wedding at the Bunchrew House and it was a fantastic experience. We were looking for a venue with a country manor house feel and we found it at the Bunchrew. We spent months planning the wedding through phone and email. The attention to detail by all the staff when the day actually came was incredible. Every detail was handled with utmost care from table setting, personalised menus, special diets, to ensuring that everything ran smoothly on schedule. All the food was excellent and beautifully presented. The setting of the hotel is lovely and our particular bedroom had a romantic view of the Beauly Firth (as did most of our guests). I highly recommend this hotel!

    Perfection by the sea

    from

    What a great place to stay, fantastic food, great service from Anne, Angus and Marion, a superb comfy bed - all beside the sea. The perfect place to stay for a few days to forget the pressures of the city. You've got to try it.Alison and John Clyme

    Enjoyed the experience

    from

    Having just held a family wedding here I would recommend this hotel without reservation. Looking for air conditioning,window screens and lifts would seem inappropriate in a building that in some parts is several hundred years old. I found staff happy to carry luggage upstairs.As a family we enjoyed our weekend.Several members of our party are international travellers and found little to complain about.

    I would suggest that tea and coffee making facilities should be in the bedrroms and not just available on request. We also felt that the breakfast was a little greasy!! However full marks to the head chef for his innovative and well presented food - well deserving of his AA Rosettes.

    Loved it in Lovatt!

    from

    We only stayed 3 nights, and ate in the restaurant on 2 of those evenings. Had we stayed longer the limited menu would have been frustrating, but as it was we thoroughly enjoyed both meals, which were delicious and well prepared. The service was good, although I guess some Americans might consider it "slow".

    The room was fabulous, very spacious, with a huge four poster bed (although quite high off the ground!), views of the garden and a fireplace. The bathroom was a little tired, but clean, and had a pretty view across the firth.

    The staff were excellent, with the sole exception of a somewhat churlish waitress at breakfast, maybe she took offence to us dashing in at 9.29 each morning!

    From reading the other reviews I would recommend choosing your room carefully and suggest that this is a hotel for those who prefer a friendly relaxing environment to a strictly formal one.

    Not worth the money.

    from

    Bunchrew's setting is indeed fabulous. We found the staff to be cordial and our spacious room on the top floor was pleasant. For a price tag of over $300 per night I would expect a comfortable bed, attentive service, window screens (or air conditioning), and an overall feeling of being pampered. We had to request in-room tea and coffee, and breakfast was awful. We had hoped to sample some of the famous Angus beef at Bunchrew's restaturant one night, but it was not on the menu.

    To pay $60 for Thai stir-fry is outrageous. Surely there are other places near Inverness where you could get what you pay for!

    It was ok

    from

    Bunchrew House is overrated. We had to walk up several flights of stairs to get our luggage to the room. The room itself was mediocre. We had dinner one evening and the food was terrible. The bread was rock hard and the service was not great. The grounds itself were ok but nothing like the pictures represented on websites.

    Very disappointed

    from

    I visited Bunchrew House in May, 2003. I was very disappointed. Our room was small and very hot. The heat was on. We ask for the heat to be turned off and the air on. We were told the heat was off. We had to sleep with the window open and with no screen. The dinner menu is a set price of 38 pounds and with no selections. You couldn't even get a salad. We ended up driving into town. Remenber this is May and they were still burning the fireplace. The whole place was like an oven. The dining room was very hot. We only ate breakfast and it was awful. The staff was unfriendy and stiff. Everywhere else we went we had a great time, wonderful service and friendly people. Stay somewhere else and save your money . This place is NOT worth the money or time.

    Don't drive past this little jewel!

    from

    I just wanted to sing the praises of Bunchrew. I was married there in the summer of 2001 and teh hotel was great. Everyone commented on the quality of the food and the staff were fantastic. Did their job without getting in peoples way and looke dafter the guide dog that accompanied a guest really well. The rooms are gorgeous and I highly recommend the Lovat Suite with its fabulous four poster!!!

    The hotel is right on the edges of the water and the grounds are perfect for a quick walk to build up an appetite, or thirst.

    I have heard nothing but good reports from other people who have been for an event or just a meal.

    a friend of mine is getting married there next year and I am really looking forward to going back and sinking into the chairs in drawing room.

We get on the boat and get going. It's not that cold on the boat because the sun has finally come out. Finally we get some good luck with the weather. He explains that the water is black because of all of the peat. He also says that the lake is incredibly deep and they ...

    ... and established an ecological preserve. Courtenay had known about the Foundation for years and, as we were traveling so near, felt she had to see it for herself. It was filled with unique living spaces. A sense of unhurried endeavor could be felt. Although she felt in harmony with their goals, Courtenay admitted she couldn't live there; the sense of the place seemed too intense someone who needs solitude. She had an interesting discussion with a ...

    Any trip to Scotland is not complete without visiting Inverness and searching for the elusive Loch Ness Monster! This morning we set off just after breakfast for a beautiful 180km drive through the Highlands to Inverness. Today is COLD and WINDY, so cold in fact, that we dug out our ski jackets to help provide some protection from the icy wind and drizzle that was sure to come. The drive went very smooth passing through some lovely green forest ...

This audio guide is very informative and has several extra additions about the people who were actually there and fighting from both sides. This is a very well put together exhibit that pays respect to the history while informing the visitor of what and why this battle took place. The monuments and the 'Stones of the Clans' ...

One we arrived back in Edinburgh our final stop was to see the ...
