Beautiful place , excellent location , boathouse restaurant amazing food , stunning views , loved it
Stayed for 4 nights to attend a friends wedding at the Abbey, everything was perfect, well located and everything you could need amenity wise, short walk to the pubs/cafes on the lochside and would recommend The Lock Inn for food and drinks.
We stayed for a week at the Caladh property. It really felt like home, with all necessary facilities for cooking, washing, etc. It is a very spacious property with a large lounge and kitchen, another small area with a sofa, and two bathrooms. Very comfortable!
A fantastic place to stay. Clean, well kept and loved the attention to detail such as the provision of sports equipment in the apartment. Expensive but worth it for a treat.
Everything was perfect. Accomodation very suitable for disabled and clean. Concierge was very helpful and facilities were great.
My family of 4 had the most wonderful time staying at Gruinyards in the Highland Club in July. The apartment was well outfitted and the property and surrounding town are truly wonderful. We were blown away by the gorgeous scenery surrounding us. So thankful for a wonderful holiday in Scotland; we can't wait to come back!
We had a fantastic stay in Chapter House, everything you could need. The kids loved all the facilities within the Highland lodge, such a beautiful setting.
The Abbey Chapel apartment has amazing architecture and beautiful stained glass windows. Truly a lovely place to stay.
Perfect location. The abbey looks beautiful and the location on the loch ness is amazing. In term of flat, everything was there to make you feel at home with all equipments. Also salt, pepper, oil were available which makes cooking easy when there for only few days. A lot of activities, games are available on the location. You can easily find ways to spend your time at the abbey and the park!
We are a family of 5 and spent our 3 first nights in Scotland at Highland Club. It was the favourite stay for my teen age kids among our 2 weeks visit in Scotland! the place is very original and will be remembered. The welcoming is great, the equipments are also excellent. I did a game of Giant chess with my son, which will probably be the first and only time! Recommended!
Все очень спокойно и хорошо без суеты, оперативно встретили подробно рассказали об отеле и правилах, в номерах есть все необходимое для продолжительного пребывания, очень чисто тепло и уютно, обязательно вернусь сюда.
En famille dans ce très bel appartement tout confort, nous avons passé un super sèjour. Confort, silence et repos au bout du lock mais sans voir le Nessi malheureusement.
Nicely decotated and well equiped appartement in a wonderfull arrangement of historical and mondern buildings within a park full of stunning trees and beautyful views of loch and surrounding hills. Fort Augustus is a busy little village and the Caledonian canal a major attraction.
Thank you for letting us stay in such an amazing building, the apartment was stunning and so big. Everything you could need was thought about and provided. The area was small but perfectly formed with gift shops, pubs and a little shop. We had a totally relaxing time.
Beautiful place in a beautiful setting. A short walk from all the amenaties. Fort Augustus is a must visit. Our cottage was lovely and very clean. I downgraded slightly on condition as in a few areas inside the paint was coming away from walls. Also it stated it had a wii console, but we could not find it and it stated it had a tv in the bedroom which it did but it had no aerial so could only watch dvd's. would definitely visit again and would recommend highland club to everyone.
This apartment is really special, because it used to be near the ceiling of the old Abbey church and involves the upper parts of the church windows, which are round and parts of the ceiling are also round. It even seems bigger and nicer than on the photos. It is decorated very beautifully and very well equipped. The park is wonderful and leads directly to the lake.
A beautiful apartment and very well appointed. It is decorated to a very high standard with beautiful fixtures and fittings. The location is excellent but perhaps not suitable for elderly visitors due to the number of stairs leading up to it. With beautiful views over the loch, it was useful to have a table and chairs in the lounge in addition to the huge eight seater in the kitchen/dining area. The internal window overlooking the atrium is a lovely touch. The linen etc was comfortable and spotlessly clean but the same cannot be said for the utensils, pots, pans and trays. We had to clea...more
The bed was a bit lumpy, and there were some spots where paint was peeling or the plaster was cracked. Despite this, this is one of our favorite places we've ever stayed. The building was beautiful, and it was lovely to be able to walk down to Loch Ness. The property manager Sue Bruce was very nice and helpful and did a brilliant job of showing us around. Wished we had been able to stay longer and would stay again!
lovely location, and apartment in a genuine monastery with cloisters, chapel and refectory with stained glass windows. The Struan apartment we stayed in is beautifully furnished and has lovely views looking down loch Ness. Although one of 100 apartments it has retained a feeling of seclusion and tranquility.
the abbey is an enchanting, rare location, fort augustus is tidy village with esential services. my famil (my wife, our son 11yo and me) spent 1 week there, a lot of nice sights are in a 1-hour drive range, and also closer a plenty of trekking paths. apartment is large, modern, confortable, with top equipment and facilities. Maybe the first time my family and I felt really at home away from home just do not expect classic resort facilies like animation for children and all you can eat restaurant, and it was just fine for us
The Abbey buildings are in a really lovely location on Loch Ness and look right up the loch. The original Abbey buildings are very beautiful and it is a real pleasure to wander through the cloisters and the grounds. Abbey Church 10 is in one of the newer extensions and is very close to the main atrium and swimming pool area. In fact, the kitchen window looks down into the atrium. In an old building it is understandable that there would be restrictions on space and that is probably why the layout of this apartment is a little quirky. The apartment is very linear with the kitchen at one end of...more
St. Benedict's Abbey was rejuvenating. Stunning views, remarkable accommodations and fun areas to explore made for the perfect holiday get away. We loved the sausage rolls and cheese and onion pasties sold at a nearby butcher shop. There was something very healing about the abbey and Ft. Augustus.
A great retreat from the stresses of life. Peaceful and friendly place. The only problems are the uncomfortable beds (too hard), and the fact that you don't actually have a loch view from the apartment as stated.
Disappointing stay at what should be a fantastic spot. The old Abbey has been updated well but far too many service and provision issues, especially for a very high priced accommodation. Positives: - Location right on Loch Ness and fairly central for exploring the Highlands - The Abbey and grounds are beautiful - Modern kitchen and appliances Need Improvement: - Furnishings in upgraded 2 bedroom apt were poor quality and comfort - Utensils and appliances provided but no "basic essentials" like dishwasher/washing soaps, cooking oil, etc - Very limited supplies available in ...more
Lovely well appointed apartment but the overall building needs a refresh and felt it was expensive now there is no swimming pool and very unhelpful service at The Boathouse restaurant.
Really great concept but missed opportunities. The reception was less than welcoming. Apartment was comfortable, but not up to the luxury advertising. Poor quality linen, holes in pillow cases and poor fitting bed sheets. Kitchen utensils were tired and toaster only worked if you kept the lever down. An onsite bar or coffee shop would have been welcome and the corridors felt like a university hall or institution and would have benefitted from some pictures, quality flooring and improved lighting.
Beautiful place, good stay, not so cleaned. Good accomodation, wonderful view and landascape on the lanke. Very very kind Mike!!!!
