We came for a short break just before easter and had a great time. The staff were all lovely, Carol Anne on reception was very helpful and gave us some great ideas of where to go, she even remembered us from last year :) the pool facilities are super, food tasty and rooms comfy! Can't wait to go back! :)

Small room and hot no hot water on the morning we were leaving. Stayed 3 nights and generally had a good stay. Restaurant dinners were average but a bit overpriced. Bit far to walk into town to find better restaurant. Breakfast was quite good.

Spent two nights which I thoroughly enjoyed, rooms are spotlessly clean, staff are friendly and helpful. Food is ok, but not the best but they catered for my needs. Plenty of buses to get into town if you don't have a car and bus stops are very near hotel. Swimming pool and spa are very clean.

Stayed for 3 nights recently, title says it all. Coffee better across the road in KFC. But clean and friendly staff. Was there for a business trip. Food unimpressive but ok if hungry and too tired to go to town.

I don't usually write reviews but have stayed at the thistle a few times now for work and never had a bad stay. Whenever I stay the rooms are always spotless and the staff are always friendly. I usually ask for extra sugar milk and tea bags which they give easily ( I've been to others where they have grudge... More

Stayed here on a weekend for work, great parking, slightly outside main inverness (about 30min walk into centre) great staff and food ok, I was on a budget through work and found things a bit expensive but I was fine, chicken skewers weren't best but cous cous was fantastic! Rooms were clean but I'd bring ear plugs if a light... More

Stayed here one night during the week. Car park has lots of spaces (free parking), quick check in/out. Room was good size with the usual mod cons. Room service food was OK - maybe better if you eat in the restaurant though. Never used the gym/health club but looked good. Would stay again when travelling north.
