Frequently Asked Questions
- Q. How do I find the hotel?
- A. Don't trust your navigation system the rural post codes often lead them astray. Although Strathpeffer is in our address, we are actually in the small village of Contin, three miles to the west. Once in Contin, the entrance to our driveway is the third right (approximately 200 yards) after the petrol station. If you approach from the south and pass the village shop you have gone too far! We are located up the hill at the end of the half-mile country driveway.
- Q. How early can we check in?
- A. Check-in time is officially 3 pm, however, should you arrive earlier we will get you into the room as soon as we can. Please make prior arrangements if it is essential that you get access to your room earlier than 3 pm.
- Q. How far are you from the airport?
- A. We are 26 miles from the Inverness airport, a leisurely 45 minute drive or a stressful 25 minutes when running very late one Sunday morning!
- Q. How late can we check in?
- A. The front desk typically closes at 11 pm. Should you be arriving later than 11 pm please make arrangements in advance as we do not have the hotel staffed during the night.
