About the hotel
Situated in the picturesque fishing village of Avoch, the Station Hotel is centrally located in the heart of the beautiful Black Isle,and is only 15 minutes from Inverness by car. The hotel is ran by Richard and Lorraine Comfort, who bought the hotel in March 2011. After a lot of labour and love, the hotel offers 8 modern guest rooms, guest dining room, and a snug residents bar.
Facilities available on site include free wi-fi, flat screen HD tvs with Freeview, a large flowering beer garden and a private function room which is available for private hires. . As well as running the hotel, Richard is also the Head Chef in the hotel kitchen where he rustles up glorious mouth watering dishes using the finest of local ingredients. He grew up within the catering industry as both his parents were chefs and he himself has worked in some prestigeous hotel kitchens, including the famous Skibo Castle in Sutherland. You won't go hungry here at the Station - just ask the locals about the Station's infamous Zinger Burger! As Avoch is on one of the main touist routes within the Highlands, there are plenty of activities near by to see and do. In the village itself there is a dolphin tour boat operating on a seasonal basis. The Moray Firth is famous for its bottle nosed dolphins and they regularly make an appearance round by the Chanonry Point Light House and in and around the harbour. There are also many wild birds of prey that can be spotted within the area such as the rare 'Red Kite'. The Black Isle hosts numerous attractive beaches, with the award winning Rosemarkie Beach being no exception and only 5 minutes away by car. Also in Rosemarkie, you'll find the Groam House Museum which is full of interesting artifacts and local knowledge about the area. Further away in Cromarty (approx 8 miles), there are historic churches, archaeological digs and Hugh Millers' birthplace, cottage and museum. Miller rose to international acclaim as a geologist, editor and writer.

May Day Break
We enjoyed a couple of nights at this family-run hotel in the family room which was in the basement with access at the rear of the hotel (plenty off-street parking).
Quiet comfortable room with the garden and the local bowling green to the rear. Traffic past the front of the hotel is light and you don't hear it much at all. We walked round to the front of the hotel to gain access to the bar/dining room but you could go up the fire escape to the conservatory dining room and attract attention. I would suggest not taking this room if you aren't happy to walk outside to get into the hotel - not a problem for us but if you're not too steady on your feet. Cosy little bar with nice local ales (Black Isle and Cromarty are the two breweries within 10 mins drive) and a lounge bar with pool table and a sofa/easy chairs tucked round the corner. Nice hearty breakfast and varied menu for evening meals - you won't go hungry. Portions are big and quality very good. They were also very happy to alter the ingredients to suit dietary requirements. Overall, what you get in this hotel is a friendly, relaxed, quiet and cosy atmosphere with nice food and drink and easy access to the Black Isle towns and Inverness. The staff were very friendly and helpful too. I would happily stay here again.
