We stayed at the Pentahotel for three days. The location is great, and our room was light and pleasant with a nice view. It was quite small, however, and very minimal in its furnishings (no closet, just a few hangers on a rod projecting into the room, for example). Very nice bathroom; quite good breakfast. The lobby, however, is very... More

We stayed for a single night on our tour around Scotland. It is a strange place, with a bar as reception desk, loud music and people from off the street in the bar. Rooms are nice and clean and breakfast is ok, but there was always missing things that we had to ask for. Good for the prize.

This well located hotel has service delivery nailed. From the moment of arrival and for the duration of my stay, everything was great, from service, to food, to quality and comfort of room. I will certainly use this place again and recommend it highly to anyone looking to stay in central Inverness.

Bit unusual to be greeted by the Barman rather than a receptionist! I would say this hotel was more for the younger generation, as the music in the bar area was a bit loud. Staff were friendly and welcoming although not very informative as we didn't know about the arrangements for breakfast or car parking facilities. All in all ok.

Dear M348OOWalanc, Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. You are right we do have a combined reception and pentalounge. We feel this gives our guests the chance to start relaxing the minute they arrive at the hotel. I'm sorry if you were not told about breakfast times. This is one of the standard pieces of information... More

nice and professional staff. comfortable room and fantastic shower. the blurbs on the shampoo, etc. tubes were...... well, interesting to say the least. good location. the birds outside screamed and screeched to their own drummer but the windows were well insulated and locked out their banter....but needed air circulation so let the aviary neighbors serenade us to sleep.

Well located and good service however rooms are basic and bed and pillows uncomfortable. Would recommend anyone staying to book dinner in advance as we was told the restaurant was fully book until 9.30 so we had to eat out. If we knew this was the case we would have booked in advance luckily there is some great restaurants local

Dear 218 victoriag, Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. I am sorry we were unable to accommodate you in the restaurant at your preferred time. August is an extremely busy time of the month in Inverness and I am afraid this extends to our restaurant as well as the hotel at times. Thanks again, and best... More

Just a couple minutes walk from the train (and bus) station, so it was very handy. The bar reception area is fab and the staff are friendly and very helpful.
