I felt it only fair to write a new review, since my last review was negative following a bad experience with staff. I have to say that this time the staff were friendly, helpful and cheerful, and my overall experience was so much better than last time. The room was comfortable, the bar had a nice atmosphere (the last stay... More

I stayed here a few times the food is really bad the staff are not really interested the rooms are ok I would only say that the rooms are really noisy with the adjacent railway and traffic . It is not worth the money they charge.

Visited for a short break with family (2 adults and 2 kids). Friendly staff and location not far from the city centre so a quick taxi from train station. Breakfast and bar all as expected but best part was the room itself. Room was for 2+2 but instead of being a single cramped space, the bedroom was two separate rooms... More

What can I say. A large group of us 19 went to a party night and were surprised to have none other than Dolly Parton as a tribute act, what a night. Of to a rocky start as no slim line tonic and many of us drivers, but after a quick request staff off to tesco and slimline to it... More

Dear dawnstevenson, Thank you for your recent review after you attended the Dolly Parton Tribute night at the weekend.

We look forward to seeing you in 2015!... More

I was accommodated here for two nights due to a work trip. The hotel is in a convenient location, just across the Raigmore Interchange off the A9, and is convenient for both the airport and the city. On first impressions the hotel is very tidily kept, but on closer inspection it was showing it's age. My room appeared to be... More

Stayed one night after a business meeting and had dinner in the restaurant. Meeting room was good, but as it was split in two and another meeting (noisier) was going on next door, it was sometimes difficult to concentrate. Staff were great, helpful with the electronics, good catering too. Restaurant was very good. I had some fist cakes which were... More

Booked into this hotel for one night on business. Staff friendly and helpful. Location very handy for road network. The room was perfectly acceptable, clean and functional, but had no view whatsoever...looked out onto a roof. Breakfast adequate. Booked the room on hotels own web site and paid too much. Good value at half the price.

We stayed here on an itison deal for two nights so all in all it was good value! The hotel is about a twenty minute walk into town and as the walk is along a main road it's not a very pleasant walk; there are local buses that leave from nearby or taxis are available!
