Stayed here as part of a further journey south, so didn't use many of the facilities. The room was dated, but clean a tidy. There is no air con though, so the window was opened to cool the place but was beside a busy main road. Had a drink at the bar, thought it was pricey at over £9.00 for... More

Booked online last minute for hubby and I, competitive price when compared with other hotels in Inverness.. This one included breakfast and use of facilities which sold it to me. It's central location is easy to find and not far from the A9 or city centre, but outside of the centre making it quiet! Reception fine, very helpful staff and... More

Good Breakfast, good wifi, nice rooms. Bar is a rip off and service is dire, if i'm paying over £4 a pint i'd like service with a smile and a bit of banter. Might be because it was 10pm when i went in but that's no excuse. Also closes at 11pm which it terrible imo.

We had a friendly welcome when we arrived and was pleased that the advance check in process had worked especially as it was about 8pm before we arrived. Very impressed with breakfast and evening meals as good quality meals and prompt friendly service by the waiters and waitresses.

Comfortable hotel with clean and pretty big rooms. Restaurant and personnel are also ok. Its location is not so convenient as it is 1,6 kilometers from city centre. Apart from taxis it is possible to take public buses to downtown as the bus stops are just next to hotel entry gate. The way for going to town is pretty easy... More

Stayed at this hotel on Thursday night 18 June. No problem at reception checked in online and just had to get our key card just took a couple of minutes. Booked at table in the restaurant for 7.30. When we arrived we noticed a bus letting off people. As we were sitting down to eat they all started to come... More

We - a group of six friends - had a fabulous stay here. The staff were just so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were excellent. Evening food very good and service brilliant. Will definitely stay again if in the area.

Disappointed at first that I could only book in here, because of the mixed reviews, but it was fine for a one night business stay. Very dated, but the staff were very pleasant and the breakfast was very good. I would have rated the hotel as good, but it was fine for a one night stay but very 'tired' in... More

Had an overnight in the Thistle. Warmly welcomed by the staff at reception and nothing was too much bother - great ethos. Room not too large but perfectly adequate and bathroom lovely with great shower. Bed comfortable. Wifi throughout hotel and reliable and fast too. Breakfast great with wide choice of hot and cold dishes. Again, excellent staff.
