Although the hotel is showing it's age, it's still a good place to stay. Friendly staff and good room, even the food is ok although nothing to write home about. The hotel is situated at the Aberdeenshire entrance to the city and within reasonable distance to the city centre, shops and various other places of interest. Fort George is some... More

Good location - although not in the centre, the location might not suit everyone but it was exactly right for us. The hotel had everything we needed for our one night stay. Being able to park was a big bonus. Staff were friendly and attentive. Would recommend this hotel.

I spent a night in here courtesy of Flybe on a half-board basis when my flight was cancelled. The room was quite spacious but in need of decoration, as was the Bathroom. Having said that there was "a biccie" with the Tea Tray in the room which is a small gesture often missing these days. Also an Iron and Board.... More

Ideal hotel for a weekend stay in Inverness. Friendly staff, cosy clean rooms, good pool area and lovely breakfast. City centre only 20-30 mins leisurely walk and retail shopping park including cinema only 5 mins by car. Definitely be staying here again.

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.
