4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The location of this hotel is fantastic - right on the river Ness, oposite the castle. The staf at reception were most helpful - a friendly welcome. Room was good, clean. Lovely old wooden interiors. Breakfast was a little disspointing and the slowest toast machine ever know - but staff were helpful and freindly.

Unfortunately, the room was extremely dated and the standard of décor was pretty poor. The bed was extremely uncomfortable, and between the extraction fan (presumably from the kitchen or laundry) right outside the window, and a busy and loud... More

The hotel is in a very great position, really close to the city center and the Inverness Castle is literally on the other side of the river (if you lucky enough to have a room with a view of the river, you can easily see it from your window). Free in room Wi-Fi. Negative sides: the hotel is a bit... More

This was a great find in Inverness overlooking the River Ness and was very comfortable with a fantastic bathroom! The first night of our stay was in a double room which was nice and the breakfast was delicious. The second night my husband arranged an upgrade to the Ness Suite which was just beautiful. I Loved this room so much!... More

The atmosphere was both relaxed and professional. The staff were very attentive but not intrusive, the breakfast was hearty and of good quality. The evening meal was of a good standard.

Nice room,a bit noisy from the fire doors but if you are tired you can't hear too much..The lounge it's very nice because the rooms doesn't have view to the river so you can enjoy at any time the nice view.

Rooms do not have AC since hot weather is not norm, but a fan was provided. The windows only open an inch or two for safety reason's, I'm sure.... More
