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

Before our stay, I was a bit concerned by some of the uncomplimentary reviews left by others, but I must say I needn't have worried. The staff member who greeted us on our arrival was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were basic, but clean and comfortable and with en-suite facilities (at least our ones did anyway). The breakfast was... More

Myself and a friend stayed at the Smithton Hotel on 13th September. The staff were very friendly & informative on check in. We were directed to our room which was perfect for our needs, the most important thing being that the beds were very comfortable! We originally picked the hotel as it was close to the A9, but far enough... More

We found our room clean and comfortable - the bed was especially comfy. It was nice to have a small sofa. The décor was bright and cheerful and well co-ordinated. We enjoyed our dinner and breakfast and found the staff to be friendly. Good value.
