This is a difficult review because my family had such varying opinions. This would be great for a youth group. The previous reviewers pointed out many of the features such as great location, plenty of cooking supplies, and an awesome view. We were looking for a break from hotels in our journey. The property allowed us to spread out, cook some meals, and wash clothes. This is not a fancy place, but more improved than the pictures show. It’s clean, but does have a strong mildew smell that you can quickly eliminate by opening windows. There was no clothes dryer, which was a huge disappointment for us. But 2 issues genuinely need resolution and hopefully will be addressed quickly. The master bed was comfortable. But the beds in the twin room were not usable, maybe a box spring and not a mattress? Our daughter ended up in the sofa so she slept neither night. The hot water heater for shower was also broken and required a game of chance as to what temperature would come out. There is a bathtub on the top level which helped.
My son had his own cozy nook so he lived his stay. The WiFi, TV and cable were excellent. There are interesting displays and area information available. Parking is easy.
I would recommend this place with caveats hoping that the beds and hot water are fixed soon.
I wish I could give this 2 comfortable place a 7 star rating on the 5 star scale.
This converted convent is as centrally located in the marvelous Scottish Highlands as one can be. Mountain scenery, lochs (especially Loch Ness) are easily accessible, as are a serviceable number of amenities.
The problem with the Old Convent is that all the nearby attractions make you feel bad that you are not spending enough time enjoying this comfortable and charming lodging. It is lovingly and meticulous restored, homey, and beautifully decorated, a rarity in holiday apartments. The delightful hosts, Chris & Felicity, live on-site.
