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

I had a very nice stay at the Waterside. It is a more traditional type hotel in an older building, but it is very comfortable. Breakfast was top notch and there is plenty of parking. I had a great room with a view over the river.

I worked as a barmaid 40 years ago when the Waterside was known as the Haughdale. The improvements which have been made are absolutely stunning. The visit was a treat for my husband`s 75th birthday with a high tea meal with two friends who had travelled from Arbroath but were staying in a different venue. I had made the booking... More
