The pentahotel Inverness is a great hotel that is a 2 minute walk to both the bus station and the train station, and right in the middle of downtown Inverness! The breakfast is great and offers a selection for any appetite! The 24 hour bar is wonderful and the staff is very friendly and helpful!

Stayed here for one night in July 2015 to watch a football match. I made the mistake of booking last minute so many hotels were full and the prices across the board were steep, however the Pentahotel stood out as being well priced (equivalent to a Travelodge) but much better located. Checking in at the bar was a novel experience... More

Dear Madturkey, Many thanks for your review of the hotel. I'm glad you found the price of a room to your liking. We check our prices every day to ensure we remain competitive within the market place to ensure this. When you include all the little added extras we provide at penta we think we provide excellent value for money!... More

Because our car rental agency blew our reservation, my husband and I were forced to hustle together a last minute hotel in Inverness for one night. We found Pentahotel through hotels.com and selected it for it's proximity to a different car rental agency that we could walk to the next morning. This place was a nice surprise. Its got a... More

Dear Renfrewshire, Many thanks for such a great review. You seem to have encapsulated a lot of exactly what we are trying to achieve here at the pentahotel in just a couple of sentences. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and maybe next time you could stay purely for leisure purposes! It would be great to welcome you back. Best... More

Had an evening meal while staying here on business and made the mistake of ordering nachos as a starter. Possibly the chef has never made nachos before , because what I got was like something your 13 year old child brings back from school after a particularly unsuccessful Home Economics lesson. Stale tortilla chips fused into an inedible lump with... More

Dear John B, Please accept my apologies for the issues you encountered with your meal. I am sorry you found the nachos so bad. I can assure you it would have been salsa on the nachos but the rest you have described is obviously unacceptable. Also the service you received does not match what we normally provide our guests, as... More

Very convenient location, no-fuss clean rooms with comfortable bed and ensuite. We were looking for budget accommodation rather than luxury, and were quite happy with what we got for the price. Breakfast not included, but that isn't a problem in a town full of cafes, and if you want to eat in you can do that too. Free wifi much... More

Dear 279janellem, Thank you for your review of the hotel. We do have limited car parking on site but if this is full the Rose Street car park is just a couple of minutes walk away and very reasonably priced at £7 for 24 hours. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Best Regards, Harold Annand General Manager More

A colleague recommended this hotel and after staying at another one in Inverness that wasn't so good I was looking forward to seeing what the Pentahotel was like and I wasn't let down. The rooms are of a good size, adequately furnished and very clean with a good range of toiletries i the bathroom. The breakfast was excellent with a... More

I love this trendy hotel and its location, very close to train station. Super cool inside where the bar staff checks you in (it's neater than it sounds). The room was clean and updated. Later in evening, bar staff was less than efficient as the bar and lounge areas remained dirty with empty glasses for hours. Hard to get a... More

Great hotel, very clean and staff friendly & helpful, we arrived without a meal reservation for the evening and they phoned round and got a booking for us. Great selection for breakfast. Will definitely stay again. Cocktails are good too. Great place for a girlie weekend.
