Hotel was clean but dated, the restaurant menu was very limited. The area surrounding the hotel gardens bushes etc need some maintenance too. Strathpeffer it’s self is very disappointing, being a Victorian spa village I expected a little bit more to see or a couple of places to eat, but all there seemed to be were hotels. We stayed on a Monday

Its a very historic building, as soon as you walk in you can feel the character of this place. They modernized the place to modern amenities. Our room was nice, clean and spacious. The drive in from the town was amazing. The building is sat atop a hill and the main road looks directly at it when driving in. It was an experience I will not forget.

The location of the hotel is great for touring the Highlands. The Rooms are nice and big.The corridors could be doing with a paint. On the down side, there was a lack of communication. We booked a table for an evening meal, we were shown to a table which had a menu with no prices. When I asked about the prices I was told its the menu they use for coach parties and as they were short staffed that was the only menu there was and she didnt know what the charge would be!!!!!! At breakfast we got told to sit anywhere, no one told us to help ourself ect. There was not much to choose from as the coach party had been in early and what was left was cold. It was like this on both days. The only good thing about the stay was the entertainment on the Thursday night.

We have stayed here before and were impressed. This is why we returned. On this occasion, the hotel was very busy and, despite the best efforts of the staff, there was some delay over dining service (nothing serious).
