I stayed here for many years while climbing the South Cluanie Ridge, and munros to the North. Sadly under new ownership the charm of a Highland Inn and drovers' lodge has gone. There are no longer forms to fill in when going out on the hills for safety, you have to use a piece of blank paper. Would it be so difficult to use the office printer to print some forms? drop offs are still done, at twice the previous price, but no pickups, which the previous owner did. Lemonade was £3.50 a glass, which makes it ten times the price of the petrol sold outside (from an automatic pump without attendant. I remember the days when Cluanie had a hand operated pump, and a man came out with a nice smile to operate it.) There is nothing wrong with this style of expensive hotel if you have lot of money to spend, but not here in the Highlands. There is no Scottish history except a few photographs on the wall. The deer no longer come to the hotel bedroom window as they used to every night. I am paying for a sauna in the price. What for, there are nearby mountains for exercise! On the night we stayed there was a predicted Aurora display. The Highlands are the best place in Britain to see this (apart from Orkney and Shetland) because of the northern location. I went outside and couldn't see anything for all the lights around the hotel causing light pollution. There is a note in the terms and conditions that my card will be charged if anything is missing from the room or any damage. Thanks for the insult. (Also I believe that making extra charges after paying the bill is not legal).

Beautiful Room, Terrible Breakfast Service We stayed in the highland suite room 4, the Hotel is in the most beautiful position. The rooms/interior are lovely. Reception staff, bar staff/cleaners are great. However the lady who runs breakfast is terrible. Slow service, visible displays of frustration & attitude asked for a coffee refill ‘ I will do it in a minute’ then continued to do a lot of nothing. Place people on small tables and do Not clear away used crockery/cutlery. Puts out the bare minimum of food so when it runs,out having to wait for her to come back out, and deal with her ‘in a minute’ she’s clearly out of her depth on her own 2/3 people running breakfast would ensure, smooth service, and people attended too. The amount of people we saw getting upset and frustrated. Food/restaurant looks and is lovely however a little pricey but when queried this was explained & I fully understand. Would we come back, in a heart beat. Just hope they sort the breakfast out.

My husband booked us in to the Cluanie Inn as a late birthday / anniversary surprise. The hotel itself is lovely. Very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The outside could do with a little bit of tidying up, however. Rubbish bins in full view, with refuse lying on the ground doesn't create a very good 1st impression as you approach the hotel from the East. The room was lovely - nice little extra touches of dressing gowns and slippers, and midgie screens on the windows. The only small fault I would give would be that it could have done with a mirror in the room itself - the only one available was in the bathroom. Food was good - again, one slight downside was that it was a bit pricey, as were the drinks, but that said, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Breakfast in the morning was good - service maybe a tad slow - I had to ask one of the waitresses for tea after we'd been sat for nearly 10 minutes. We had lunch earlier in the day across the road at Landour Bakehouse, before going for a short drive to Glenelg as our room wasn't quite ready to check in to. It was very good. Again, maybe slightly over priced - £3.50 for a cup of tea out of a paper takeaway cup, and no fresh milk - only pots of UHT. The tuna melt paninis were lovely - nice fresh bread with plenty filling. We didn't sample any of the cakes, as the place started to get quite busy and we left to allow others to have our seats. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Cluanie, but I'd maybe suggest having a look at pricing, as I feel that it could put a lot of potential customers off.

We stopped for late lunch and was surprised by the varied menu. We opted for the Indian Specials. Wonderful Dahl makhani and roasted cauliflower and potato biryani. Both served with tiny crispy poppadoms and the biryani came with a delicious raita. We even popped across to the Landour Bakehouse to pick up samosas! A real feast and lunch treat.

We managed to get a last minute booking after some very wet camping! This is a great base for Glen Shiel. The rooms are clean, well maintained and very well equipped and it was wonderful to be able to have a bath after a long tramp in the mountains. The breakfast was very good and plenty of it but the dinner menu was definitely overpriced.
