    Very good

    Room was very comfortable, warm and hotel lounge very comfortable and relaxing - breakfast good

    We went for dinner at 7.45pm to be told that the kitchen stops taking orders at 7.30pm. The waiter suggested going down to the village shop to buy snacks!.. We thought this was unacceptable for a large hotel catering for tourists - the receptionist had not told us before hand that we needed to be in the restaurant so early. Many guests had arrived too late for the hotels restaurant and some had indeed gone to the local shop and came back asking for cutlery to eat their fruit or whatever. This spoiled an otherwise comfortable stay and we felt gave a very poor impression of scottish hospitality to guests who had chosen to stay in this hotel

    Superb

    The staff were all very friendly and approachable. The setting in the heart of the highlands is unbeatable. The breakfast was excellent. Large rooms. Very quiet.

    The bar prices and wine list seemed a little expensive,

    The exterior was beautiful and the town of Strathpeffer is a quaint town near to Inverness. The night porter was extremely helpful, thoughtful and welcoming.

    Checked in later in the evening - the hotel misplaced our booking. The manager attended to us and we didn't receive a warm welcome at all. We were led to believe the hotel was full and were out of luck.... until she found the booking. Our room was decent - clean & updated but our friends had a room in appalling condition. Not clean, totally run down, no phone, spiders everywhere, no shower etc.

    The Ben Wyvis is a splendid hotel, luxious and comfortable. The hotel is set in a beautiful location in Strafpeffer. Not too far from Inverness, ideal for the start of our tour of the Highlands. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is a lift in the hotel, which is a relief when you have luggage. The dining room was very impressive, and the included breakfast was great. Our compliments to the chef! It was the best hotel breakfast we've had.

    The stay at this hotel was a complete surprise. The accomodation was elegant, spacious and well located. The dining room was top notch with excellent meals at breakfast and dinner. Bar services were also convenient and well located. The hotel had been beautifully restored during the last 3 years. The in-house cinema was a bonus. Centrally located with easy access to the town and to motorways to travel around Scotland. The appearance of the local Strathpeffer band featuring bagpipe playing and dancing on saturday night was memorable. Overall, an extremely pleasant interlude

    We were ripped off for our meal. It was only worth half the price.

    Very good

    The hotel room was very clean, had all the facilities you could want for a short stay. Reception was very welcoming and efficient. In a beautiful location and surrounding area lovely.

    Hotel bar and waiting staff not very friendly or helpful. Arriving towards the end of dinner service we were met with a shrug from the bar staff when enquiring if we were to late for dinner and the waiting staff ignored us in the dining room as we went to enquire. The website stated a bar menu was available but this was not the case. The room was small you could not spend a long holiday at the Ben Wyvis.

    Good reception staff. Breakfast service and food was OK.

    Uncomfortable bed. Too hot and no radiator control. Window had to be wedged open with tea pot! Staff outside shouting and laughing at 01.00am. Food over priced.
