We enjoyed our stay here. The room was large and well furnished. Towels and linen lovely quality. Shower was very small though. We would have expected a welcome treat ie biscuit in the room but that’s a small detail. We only saw two staff who were both very friendly, efficient and welcoming. Dinner and breakfast were good. A touch on the pricey side but a grand old building well worth preserving.

We used the facilities in the hotel, whilst stsaying in the adjacent bunkhouse (meals, packed lunches and bar). Very high quality indeed with roaring log fires in the main rooms. As always, friendly staff are the number one priority, and we had a warm welcome and a thoroughly enjoyable few days. Service was very good. The hotel is located conveniently close to the railway station, and near the junction for roads to Lochcarron / Kyle of Lochalsh, Gairloch / Ullapool and Dingwall / Inverness. We shall return.

We called in after a tiring and cold day in the hills. The bar was open on the afternoon and we took the opportunity to rehydrate in front of the roaring log fire until dinner started at 6.30.
We both had the game pie with chips, which was very filling.

We were really looking forward to our stay at Ledgowan, having previously stayed here a number of decades ago and had very happy memories of that stay. But we were profoundly disappointed on so many fronts.

The Lodge used to be lovely with a charming atmosphere but the upgrade, and seeming change of ownership, seems to have geared the Lodge now more to the unsuspecting wealthy and to foreigners, especially Americans, who, from the reviews clearly love the place!

In our view, our upgraded room, with their emphasis on "chic-gold" (reproduction French-style furniture and chandeliers) was kitsch. For the price we had to pay for a single night b and b - $276 - we would expect a decent (down) duvet, not one with artificial filing, a decent sized bathroom (ours was pokey with a tiny shower) and decent cups to enable you to drink a good cup of tea (ours were tiny expresso-type cups), with pre-packaged, and not fresh milk.

As others have said the breakfast was appalling,. In our professional lives, we have had to stay at very basic hotels and without any exaggeration the breakfast at Ledgowan was equally as dire. During our trip to Scotland this September we stayed in a number of B and Bs paying HALF the price of Ledgowan and were offered a personally cooked breakfast with local black pudding, freshly grown tomatoes and mushrooms and homemade breads and jams, personally served. Here breakfast is buffet style with no choice of eggs (the fried eggs provided were very greasy), no black pudding, extremely ordinary breads and cheap "plastic" jams, butter etc.

The quality of the dinner was fine, but in our view, again compared with other B and Bs and hotels in Scotland we stayed in during our Scottish vacation, both the food and the wine was very pricey and the portions far from generous. Quite insufficient if you are back from a two hour walk in the surrounding countryside.

The array of antlers, armour, swords, etc. in the building clearly has the desired effect of appealing to foreign tourists, but to us this (in our view totally overdone "ambience") failed to make up for what for us was a hugely disappointing visit with, as noted above, an overpriced room for what was provided and a simply dreadful breakfast.

Finally, as this place is advertised as an Old Hunting Lodge - as indeed it is - one would have expected there not only to be readily-available information on local walks but a level of keenness on behalf of the staff to share local knowledge on exciting and memorable walks to be made from the Lodge, ideally categorised by levels of difficulty. To our disappointment we found none.

The lodge itself is set up on a small hill and is very easy access from the road. On the approach you are greeted by some wild stag wondering around the car park. The lodge is an old hunting lodge and as you walk in, there are stags heads surrounding the walls with rich dark oak paneling which made for a very cosy seating area. That night we had a drink around the burning fire which was lovely.

We ate at the lodge because there wasn't really anywhere you can drive being so remote. Having said that, we were very glad we did. The food felt really home cooked and the menu was actually very varied for such a small place.

The room was quite small and because there was no music playing we did feel like we had to whisper for fear of neighboring guests hearing our whole conversation.
The same was true at breakfast time as there was only 2 guests in the restaurant at the time. This would be the only criticism though, and the quality of the home cooked breakfast was exceptional.

All in all it was a brilliant. stay and set in a beautiful location with lovely home cooked food and friendly staff. I will definitely be back when i'm next in Scotland.

Room tip: There isn't a bad room with this amazing secluded location
