I stayed at the Thistle Inverness on business for one night recently. The hotel is out of town and is a ten minute taxi into the town centre. There is nothing wrong with the hotel, room was fine and fully functioning however there wasn't anything that distinguished it from average. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the curly wurly...

We had a stay during peak summer (June 3rd week) at this hotel. The air conditioning was not effective - though the hotel was non-smoking - the people smoking outside the hotel could be smelled at the reception area. The best past is that they have a rental car counter there and a great pub too and a KFC just... More

Stayed here overnight whilst visiting Inverness. Used the leisure facilities (gym, pool, spa and sauna) which were perfect. A good location (if you have a car) as it is a little out of the city centre. Fully cooked breakfast in the morning was amazing and all staff were extremely polite and helpful.

From the outside the vista of this hotel is uninspiring, box like architecture a la seventies. However a warm and friendly greeting at the very efficient reception soon made up for the first impressions. Looking around the public areas, bar and restaurant , everything was very well presented and appeared impeccably clean. Our twin room was typical hotel fare,tastefully furnished... More

Continental breakfast is good. Staff was great and very friendly. Rooms are good, Housekeeping does a great job. Good walkable distance to City centre (Unless raining). Overall a pleasurable experience. The only bad side i had was the internet connection.

Stayed here for two nights whilst visiting friends in inverness. Got a cracking deal on room,dinner and breakfast.

We got plenty of towels in the... More

I stayed at this hotel on Wednesday 9 July, the evening of the World Cup semi final between Holland and Argentina, a match that I wanted to watch in the bar, that finished after penalties around midnight. I arrived at the hotel around 8pm, and took a seat in the bar to watch the football, and had a very average... More
