Again like previous guest this place has been on my MUST VISIT list for sometime. The service is not 5 star by any means. We had dinner in the restaurant where service was poor or pouring our own wine and water. There was a loud couple with a young child who was running round all during our meal. We had... More

Stayed for one night paid £220 for room number six. Ended up having little sleep with only a mild apology for the inconvenience. The noise from the kitchen above the room and the constant drone of the fan from I assume was the extractor in the kitchens ,until it was switched off at 23.55 after I complained. We were awoken...

My boyfriend and I just returned from a one night stay at the Rocpool Reserve... Absolutely amazing! Being our 5 year anniversary/my boyfriends birthday I splashed out and booked the Extra Decadent room. As soon as we arrived in the car park we were greeted outside the car door and our bags were carried to our room. We were shown... More

I booked this hotel for new year and we were not disappointed. we were greeted by some very friendly staff and asked to wait in the reception with complimentary champagne (and jelly beans) until our room was ready. We had one of the two rooms with a private hot tub which added an additional feel good factor!! The rooms were... More

I stayed a couple of nights in this hotel with my son and was overall pleased with our stay. Inverness is not as great as a town as I was expecting but a great starting point for beautiful excursions and sceneries in northern Scotland. First our room was comfortable, well furnished with all the amenities. On the negative note, our... More

We had a great evening, everything was excellent, from the minute we arrived to be warmly greeted, the special touches in bar for drinks, i.e. olives and nibbles, then taster, then to restaurant, the meal was amazing. We had set menu, the presentation was a work of art and the taste was delicious. I have no negative comments as the... More

We stayed for one night with an itison.com voucher in a decadent room. The location is great for walking into town as it's very central. The room was beautiful, fantastic size and lovely decor with a seperate living area. Only thing is the location is a bit funny with no gardens etc so looked onto a neighbouring house so not... More
