This is a nice hotel however there are a few small rooms. I was given a very small room with a tiny bathroom and getting in and out of the shower was interesting not to mention a very low flow rate. However my colleague had a very large room with a nice big bath. The Bar is very nice and... More

Popped into this establishment today (08/03/2015) for a coffee and a scone before the Inverness half marathon. As soon as I'd walked in I was not acknowledged by the lady on the front desk. Then I received no apology for pointing out a hair in my food. The price did not reflect the service. Not a great experience.

I arrived at the hotel about 11 on a Saturday for an all day event to be met by a sour receptionist who merely pointed in the direction of the hall when I asked her politely where the event was being held. I came back in a few minutes and asked her if there was any chance of some food... More

Just thought I'd let you know what a great night myself and my family had thanks to the waterside hotel. We went for a meal with dance then stovies and a dram at the bells. The meal was really good no complaints the staff were very attentive and were always on hand. For the last few years we gave always... More

Stayed here in September for two nights, everything for me personally was perfect. Charlene and Allison and another lovely girl behind the bar were truly amazing. Chef Lara is outstanding. Two things I would like to point out, very abrupt and rude member of staff behind bar - slim male with glasses. Needs re training and advising of what sort... More

We stayed here for a night on our trip to Inverness during the winter. Our room was located facing the river. The view was awesome with Christmas lights on the other side of the river making it even better. The morning breakfast is made to order and is one of the best ever we had. The hotel manager that morning... More
