8/10 Very good

We stayed in a private family room which was clean and spacious. 3 off the 4 beds had usb/power plugs that worked. Bedding included but towels are for hire. Common spaces were way too warm, but room had windows which enabled us to lower the room temp. Each room was themed. We stayed in the Otter room which was decorated with pictures and fact sheets about otters (we loved this little touch)! We arrived about 8pm and the inside parking lot was full. We were able to find street parking a little ways away. Breakfast was basic for the price, toast, jam, porridge, apple and orange juice. We would pass on breakfast if we stayed there again, but otherwise we had an enjoyable stay and would recommend.

10/10 Exceptional

It's a hostel, really, though my hiking buddy and I booked a private room with private en suite. The room was quite large, as was the bathroom and shower. We were very pleased with the facilities. The Lodge itself is a friendly place with a bar, tables for chatting with each other or other guests, and a very nice dining and breakfast area offering darn good breakfast options. Prime location in Fort Augustus. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, though, off-hours, you won't find them anywhere in sight. I would definitely stay there again, though, again, if you want a hotel with hotel amenities, select that option. It's a hostel.

Marvellous Morags
A quiet and pleasant little hostel, after planning to camp most of the Great Glen way and getting caught in a torrential downpour on the first night we really appreciated the opportunity to dry out and prepare for the next stage. Vicky the proprietor takes the time to get to know her guests and appears to appreciate nurturing her highland oasis.,She does the cooking cleaning, gives helpful advice and even sought out a pack of cards for us. I would recommend it to others and it's only a couple of minutes walk off the route.
