Rather dated now in both style and fittings it is never the less a comfortable, reasonably priced hotel with warm friendly staff, excellent breakfasts... More

Fantastic stay for the second time at this comfortable welcoming Hotel. Bought this itison deal so dinner included first evening & bottle of wine with meal- super value. The receptionist was very welcoming and went out of her way to check if ground floor room with walk in shower was available after me requesting it only the day before. Thankfully... More

We spent 2 nights here at the beginning of November, bed & breakfast + 1 nights dinner deal. Great location right in the heart of Inverness, food and service was fantastic. Our room was spotless, decorated to a high standard & had all the little extras you expect. The only downside was there was very limited parking outside the hotel.... More

We booked in for a one night stay as we were catching a train from the adjacent railway station the next day. My other half, who is always looking out for a deal, had fixed us up using a voucher from one of the well known companies that entitled us to bed and breakfast plus a drink for the princely... More

We booked via a KGB break as it was convenient by public transport for a couple of days away. After reading some reviews we weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised with the hotel. We arrived before check in time and were browsing the restaurant menus when we were approached by a young English couple who enthusiastically recommended the restaurant.... More

Came to Inverness for weekend break. On arrival, hotel receptionist explained the room wasn't ready yet (which was fine) and told us we could leave our luggage in the storage room. Storage room easily accessible, too easily. No lock at all. Tens of suitcases lying about. You can just come and go through them all, and pick what you want!... More

Thank you for the kind review - and while we reassure you that all our luggage storage rooms are secured and under round the clock cctv surveillance as well as the facts, that all our guest rooms have a double locking system. We would look forward to welcome you again. More
