Spent 2 nights here, using it as a base to visit historical area around. Not the most impressive curbside appeal but the place is a modern boutique style which was very nice. Pleasant attentive staff, especially Alistair who is a huge asset to that place and I hope he is recognized for it. Nice bar and choice of drinks and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Rocpool. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was large and beautiful, and so was the bathroom. Everything was spotless. We had a drink in the bar and had room service a couple of times. All was excellent. It was quiet at night, yet only a 5-10 minute walk from restaurants... More

Have just returned from a reunion with 2 other couples staying at Rocpool Reserve and we all had an excellent stay. Service is very friendly and extremely efficient starting with someone coming to take our luggage as soon as we pulled into the car park. The hotel is beautifully and elegantly furnished in a modern style. We stayed in room... More

Solo woman on a road trip Lands End to John O Groats this hotel was by far the nicest one that I stayed at. Having got caught up in the snarl of traffic in Inverness I was rather fraught on arrival but can recommend their Bloody Mary and bar menu to bring down the blood pressure! I think I had... More

We were greeted by Lewis, the assistant manager, upon arrival and he showed us to our room. The room was gorgeous and very spacious. When we first entered our room, the bathroom (which was spa-like with a separate bath and shower) and wardrobe were on that level. When we walked up a few steps, we had a beautiful and spacious...

Friendly staff, comfortable room, good food. But all beginning to feel a bit dated and tired, especially outside areas. Definitely feels more 4star than 5 star and not particularly good value for money.

This place was great, but I just don't see it as a 5 star hotel, and I have stayed in quite a few of them. It may be the best in Inverness, but that alone doesn't make it a 5 star hotel. The location was excellent, very close to the high street downtown. Inverness is not a bustling city by... More

We stayed here for only one night for a quick stop in Inverness and I loved the small, elegant feel of this hotel. From the moment you check in, everything is 5 star all the way. The room is excellent and very comfortable. Large, with lots of space we immediately made ourselves comfortable. The special part of this hotel is... More
