Views over loch breathtaking. After a long day out a warm welcome on return. The quality of meals and service was consistently of a high standard. We will return in 2008.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Letterfinlay Lodge Hotel

Brilliant! Lucky, lucky find.

from EyreTravellers
Letterfinlay Lodge looked too posh for our budget but we stopped anyway because it was getting dark and snowy. We are sooooo glad that we did! Letterfinlay has the old world glamour of a hunting lodge. The views are stunning, our room was huge with a great big bath that I could have stayed in all day. The staff were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. But my favourite part of our stay was the food. Definitely try the pate entree. We were only going to stay for the one night but after travelling around for the day and having been spoiled by the price and service of Letterfinlay Lodge, we drove the 2 hours back and stayed another 2 nights and travelled around the local area. When returning to Scotland there is no doubt that we will return to Letterfinlay Lodge. Our stay at Letterfinlay Lodge really stands out as a highlight of our trip.

My husband and I had stayed here a couple of times before our wedding, and was the obvious venue for our wedding. The views are outstanding and the food and staff are amazing. Everything was catered to our needs and nothing was to much trouble. It is the most amazing and magical place we have ever been to and did not want to leave.. Triple A stars to Letterfinlay and cant wait to return in a years time for our anniversary..
Thanks to Kevin and his staff

poor value for money

from lillisaPenrith
This was the second time returning to this hotel after a very enjoyable stay in april,found everything to be very expensive this time with very poor value for money,i had steak which i think was barely 5oz and almost see through,my wife had chewy scampi with supposedly home made chips which again verypoor portion but she would have struggled to eat any more .but the biggest let down of the stay was the was the so called venison pate.thought sharing tv lounge with staff and management was a bit odd,also thought the bar was more suited to a wine bar in essex(but just my opinion).the latest you cane dine is 8.30 but we were advised about this on request.on a better note room was very clean but thats all we can recomend . lisa and kevin

It was OK

from macaroon68
Upon arrival we were asked to book our meal early as the restaurant was very busy that night, the 5.30 request was far to early so we booked for 6.30, only to find that there was about 10 people in the restaurant and then observed them turning people away, far from busy, certain staff couldn't speak english well at all and then watched at breakfast as the staff started arguing with eachother. Breakfast was nice with good choice and so was dinner really just didn't tick the boxes for us.

Well worth a visit.

from AdmiralAwesome
We are just back from a week long stay at the Lodge and cant fault it. The weather was cloudy and rainy at times but this in no way hindered our stay. Breakfast in the hotel was lovely with plenty on offer including a variety of cooked breakfasts to your liking. We stayed at the hotel for dinner every evening and every meal we got couldn't be faulted. They were delicious (especially the haggis neeps and tatties) a must have starter. We stayed in room 4 and although we had no lough view we still had views of the hills behind. The room was spacious with a very large well equiped bathroom.
Overall our stay at the hotel was a very enjoyable holiday experience. This was also heightened by the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff there.
We would not hesitate to go back.


from MacNorthernIreland
On arrival all smiles until I mentioned our pet, there seemed to be a problem initially but after checking our booking confirmed our request for our pet to stay. Their website mentioned dogs on request. We were shown to room 14, access was outside the hotel, opposite side to hotel entrance. Going for dinner and breakfast meant we had to walk around and as the weather was wet it was very inconvenient.
On the positive side the outside access was good for allowing our dog out at night.
The bedroom was clean and nicely decorated, bed was rather small, ceiling low and the window small although the view from it was fanastic. The lighting was insufficient if you wanted to read.
We had dinner in the restaurant and I couldn't fault it, the service and the food where both great as was the breakfast.
The location beside Loch Lochy was fantastic and you could walk down to the waters edge.

Perfect in everyway!

from sunshine85NorthWales
We stayed in 'Letterfinlay lodge' for a long weekend in May, for my birthday and also to climb Ben Nevis for Marie Curie charity.

We were after a little bit of luxery and comfort near all the sights. We stayed in a standard room on b&b basis £70 a night!
Our room was something very special, really clean and homely with an excellent ensuite. But most amazing thing was the view. Waking up in the morning looking onto a huge loch, blue skies and a mountains in the back ground was a great way to start the day.
Breakfast supplied downstairs was lovely - they would cook anything you requested. But the menu was enough choice by far. We also ate here our first evening, menu was lovely and reasonably priced.
The bar was open allday and they had a decking with seats looking onto the loch to enjoy drinks.
Sights such as Loch ness was about an hours drive away. Nevis was about 20 mins drive into fort william.

Recommended to anyone!

Fantastic break

from jonesy47
Having made a last minute decision to travel to see friends in Spean Bridge, we opted for this tripadvisor highly rated hotel.
On arrival we were greeted and made to feel at home instantly, the room was spacious with an art deco bathroom you would not believe. We stayed for 3 nights and ate there 2 nights out of 3, the chef needed complimenting on his fare with fresh vegetables all the time, all the staff were a pleasure to deal with and nothing was too much trouble. well worth a visit, the only downside a car is essential for this area as taxis are almost none existant and the premiums required are excessive.

Romantic Stunning Setting ,Home From Home

from InvernessLily
My husband booked us in at the Letterfinlay lodge Hotel as a surprise for me ,the purpose of the surprise was to ask me to renew our marriage vows.

I have to say he couldn't have picked a more romantic setting ,the scenery is second to none .The combination of snow tipped mountains and breathtaking views over loch Lochy was absolutely gorgeous.

We were warmly greeted on our arrival by the manager of the hotel kevin .
We were shown to our room,in this case the white room .
The room was very spacey and spotlessly clean ( a credit to the housekeeper).
One of the windows looked out onto the nearby mountains .

We had booked to have our evening meal in the Hotel restaurant .
The restaurant backs onto the sun deck overlooking the loch ,once again the views were stunning.
Kevins wife Meg served us at our table ,she was warm and friendly and guided us through the menu .
We both had medallions of Beef with veg etc
I had a desert ,my husband had a selection of cheeses .
The meal was cooked to perfection ,the portions were plentiful ,the service was speedy .
The chef Paul is certainly a credit to the hotel ,his menu caters to a large variety of taste .

We had drinks in the hotels lounge area ,with its large leather suite it was very relaxing.kevin took the time to stop and chat with us and give us some tips on where to visit in the local area .

Breakfast was as we expected a hearty meal to set us up for the day .

Kevin and Meg made us very welcome ,nothing was too much trouble .Letterfinlay is certainly a home from home

Heavenly Highland Haven!

from BlueskydaySCotland
My partner and I stayed here for Valentines Weekend this year and we had a fantastic time!

As soon as we arrived the hotel felt warm and welcoming and the Kevin - the hotel manager - checked us in and showed us to our cozy, freshly refurbished room with wonderful views of the loch. We had dinner that evening and the food was delicious - service very relaxed and friendly.

We tried a few of the famous Malts too.

Breakfast the next morning was very good - Full Scottish - yummm.

There's lots to see and do nearby - it's a short drive to Nevis Range with the Gondola and Ben Nevis if you are feeling energetic or in the other direction there's the famous Loch Ness. It's perfect walking country too and apparently in the summer they have a speed boat on the water which can take you across to the other side of the loch for your very own picnic on a secluded beach.

We couldn't fault it really - Dinner the second night was every bit as good and we have already booked to go back in the summer to have dinner on the Osprey Sundeck and watch the boats sailing by on their way North.

We paid just £70 per night for the room Bed and Breakfast so really good value. We think we have stumbled upon a real find - hurry along before everyone else finds it!

Top Local Tips for Spean Bridge

wot no taxis Having arrived by train to Spean Bridge, we were fortunate to have friends pick us up otherwise we would not have known what to do as there is no taxi rank. the train station is an unmanned one so would recommend booking seats to and from Spean Bridge prior to journey as Fort William is about 17 miles away to do this.

Booking restaurants.... If dining out on a weekend, ensure you book in advance. As it is only a small place everything seems to get fully booked up very quickly!

drive yourself if you must go to malaig don't waste your money on the steam train drive instead.
