Room was comfortable and well appointed. Clean and neat - nice view out over Inverness in distance. Breakfasts a little under-whelming - who serves grapefruit segments as a main course? - but this is a reasonable place to stay for a night or two if you're on a road trip. Not really a place in which to relax, as, apart... More

We stayed for 1-night while travelling in the area with the intention to visit Cullodon battlefield which is close by the next day. We pre-booked the family orientated adjoining double and twin single rooms that really do offer good value for money with a combined both rooms included price. The rooms were modern, clean, tidy and adequately equipped although the... More

We planned to stay a night in the Inverness but found that prices were rather high. Moving out a bit we found the Smithton Hotel and decided to give it a try. The first impression was a surprise, rang the bell at reception and the barman came out. We said we had a booking and gave our name, to be... More

Our room was as far away as you could possibly get from the parking lot. We had lots of bags to pack up multiple staircases and through multiple doors. The rooms and linens were clean - pretty plain jane but functional. The pub downstairs could be a bit noisy. My adult daughter was awake until the pub shut down. Staff... More

Hotel was okay, needs a bit of tlc. The rooms were not cleaned everyday of my stay, towels not replenished etc. Attention to detail needs to be improved, but the service from the lovely tall gent behind the bar was impeccable-couldn't fault him. Alright stay over all.

We got a car at Edimbourg and drove right to Inverness to know a bit of the place, lock ness, etc. We stayed at the Smithton Hotel during 3 or 4 nights, and the service was very good. The drawback is that you gotta go upstairs, no elevator, and with a baby that not very practical sometimes, but it worth... More

I stayed here before several years ago and again last month, this is a great wee hotel, friendly staff, clean and comfortable. Would recommend this hotel no problem and would return with hesitation. Thanks for a great room and service.

The Smithton Hotel in Inverness isn't quite on the beaten track, however it really is a little hidden gem. I have been travelling to Inverness regularly on business and have been using the hotel each time. Jennifer and the team are some of the most friendly staff I have ever met and will go out of their way to make... More

My son and I stayed for two nights as we were doing Culloden and Fort George, The Smithton was within easy reach of both venues, so after a long day walking around, it was nice to come back to a hot shower, a drink (or two) and a nice meal, we also had the best nights sleep we've had for... More
