Lovely hotel & food. Room requires curtains though
Lovely stay at the Inch hotel. The front of house/waiter was very professional and provided an excellent service throughout. The food was delicious and supper was well priced for the quality. Our one main but only criticism which effected the comfort of our stay, was that the room had no curtains! It has a big traditional rectangular bay window but with just a white office style blind, which the strings were broken and off course let so much light in, we were woken at sun rise. This is something the hotel must change, as it’s significantly impacts the comfort of the room.

Exactly what we were looking for. A 150 year old, old hunting lodge, with quality bedrooms, excellent food and a lovely lounge with a log burner. It is slightly out of Fort Augustus but an easy back road walk to see the towns sights. The Inch is a peaceful hotel with tentative staff.
