I stayed here for 3 nights on 6th, 7th and 8th of April with my husband and 4 year old daughter and had a brilliant time. The room was clean, fresh and had plenty of space for the 3 of us. We were in 117 which overlooked the car park and small garden. Even though it was at the back... More

From Nicole Manson the GM and Charlene to the staff behind reception and the bar and restaurant helping with the planning and prep everything went so well without a hitch, every single one of my guests that also stayed at the...

We stayed for 2 nights on 4 & 5 April and found The Waterside to be a very good 3 star hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable and very reasonably priced. We had our evening meal in the restaurant which was excellent. The menu offers a wide range of choices from bar meal style food to fine dining options.... More

We stayed at this hotel on 28-30 March along with another couple. We picked this hotel because of it's central location (5 mins walk into the middle of Inverness City centre) & the fact it was right on the River. We were on an a deal which included 2 nights B&B & 1 Dinner (& we could pick the night).... More

My wife and I stayed the last weekend in March, only for the one night, as we left our son with the in-laws so we could have an evening out! Check in was fine and friendly, the receptionist explained there was a function on at the hotel, and that our room (104) was directly above the function. This was not... More

Thank you for taking e time to post a mainly complimentary review. We are surprised at your dis-satisfaction with drinks quality as we thoroughly clean our beer pipes weekly and the beer cellar is refrigerated as is the point of delivery - including Guinness. Our wines are carefully selected for their quality against price and talking of prices we know... More

Really clean and fresh room, bathroom spotless. Excellent breakfast with friendly staff and nice restaurant. Liked the mirrors on the wall in the restaurant which meant the guests with their backs to the window could look out too. Only downfall was the wall between 107 and 109 is so thin you can hear every word, felt the need to whisper.... More

Thank you for posting a complimentary review. Sadly, when the hotel was built they did not have the foresight to build rooms mostly with river views but we do have some cracking superior rooms with that and more.We look forward to you coming back again. More

The Waterside certainly delivers on every level. Warm and genuine welcome, spotlessly clean through out, especially in the tasteful rooms. Very warm and extremely comfortable. The outlook in the restaurant is spectacular, looking across the river Ness. The food does not disappoint either. Head Chef Lara, and her team offer something for everyone.Tastefully presented, beautifully cooked with her own personal... More
