A quality modern hotel situated less than 2 miles from the centre of Inverness. The hotel’s free car park is a big plus. My boyfriend and I stayed for 1 night only, but due to that night being New Year’s Eve, we merely just slept here as we went into the city centre to experience Hogmanay.

Clean hotel but a bit dated rooms, breakfast good but dinner was a buffet and although we booked there wasn't really a need as we were the only couple there. We were directed to a buffet meal which was so dried up it was unbelievable, that's when we about turned and left for the chippie across the road.

Second stay at this hotel; was upgraded from Single Standard to Executive Double which was a huge bonus. Huge comfy bed, slippers and robe, chocolates and shortbread ... the only downside is that the room had the same (rather tired, but very clean) bathroom as the standard room. Location not the best location for city centre/train station, but it's a... More

Although the hotel was busy with guests arriving both for the wedding and travellers the staff were extremely courteous and efficient and very helpful on arrival. The room... 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.
