The Loch Ness Inn

January 3, 2013

Fancy seeing the Loch Ness Monster? To do so you would be wise to stay at the Loch Ness Inn, read on to see why.

This review is a little late, but I was so impressed with this little hotel that I wanted to share my experience with my blog readers. This blog isn’t about travel, it’s about culture, but I guess travel can fit into that in some way, and the Loch Ness Monster is certainly a major part of the culture in Scotland.

We stayed at the Loch Ness Inn for two nights in September 2012. The rain that weekend was horrid; we knew it was going to be one of those weekends. But, we persevered and found the inn, very easy to find, but make sure you use their instructions. We must have arrived at about 5pm, and we entered in the hotel entrance. A lovely young man, who booked us a table for dinner, greeted us, he said we could come down whenever we wanted, and then showed us to our room.

The room itself was small, but perfect for two. The bathroom had obviously been recently renovated and had a lovely shower, which I immediately put to good use! The bed was very comfortable and so there can be little else you need in a room. The wi-fi was free, which was an added bonus.

We went down to dinner to find the dining room completely full, so we knew there was probably going to be some good food on the menu, if the locals like it, it is going to be good. The locals were right. We had a three-course meal, which was absolutely delicious, so much so that we booked in for dinner the following night.

After a good nights sleep we headed down for breakfast. There were cereals laid out for us and a cooked breakfast was provided, which could pretty much be tailored to whatever you wanted. We had a cooked breakfast on both the mornings we stayed, and we were not disappointed. We also found out on the second morning that we were the only guests staying, not surprising as it was out of season, but every effort was made on behalf of the staff to ensure that we had the same standards had the hotel been full.

The price differs on when you go to the Loch Ness Inn, but we paid around £80 a night. For this price the value was excellent, especially receiving a cooked breakfast in the morning.

There is a lot to do in the area surrounding the hotel, there is a castle, tourist attractions, shops, walking and cycling, but I think they will have to wait for another post. So, if you are interested in visiting the Loch Ness area then come back tomorrow where I will look at the Castle and some other things that can be done in the area.

If you have stayed in the area, or even at this hotel, then please do comment and let me know what your experiences were.

Here is the website of the hotel, just in case this article has encouraged you to have a trip to Scotland to try and see the mysterious Loch Ness!
