From the moment you arrive you will realize that this place is special. We were greeted on the front steps by Rob their day manager. He immediately made us feel welcome and began our check in process. Our rooms were properly maintained and equipped with everything that we would need for a 2-3 day stay in this lovely town. We...

During our trip to Scotland we wanted to spend about 4 days touring the Highlands of Scotland. Our tour guide had recommended Rocpool based on conversations we had had on lodging. It was exactly what we were looking for! This is a boutique hotel with superb service. The staff there was very attentive to our needs, always available for questions,... More

These little boutique hotel has one of the best restaurants in Inverness. Having dinner and breakfast there is an experience. The rooms are bigggggg...... And the staff is extremely helpful. Parking is available on premises for free. Would come back without a doubt.

We stayed here for 3 nights after our wedding. After quite a lengthy drive we arrived at the Rocpool reserve hotel. First impressions of the hotel weren't great, it looks nothing more than a house. Plenty of parking outside though. We were greeted at the door by one of the staff who took our bags and showed us to our... More

Arrived to find staff waiting for us to help with bags and check us in without fuss, a bonus after a long day of driving through the Highlands. Room was comfortable, large enough and the wifi fast enough to browse without waiting. Dinner wasn't as good as I expected, but was decent enough. The smoked trout and scrambled egg breakfast...

Had an overnight stay in this lovely hotel with my husband and two other family members. Hotel staff were charming upon arrival and throughout our stay. We booked a standard type room and it was lovely. Had a great night sleep as the bed and pillows were extremely comfy. Just a 5minute walk into the centre of Inverness but it... More

We booked our room based on other reviews of this place on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We were greeted by friendly Scottish hospitality from the start and after a brief wait in the Lounge, which had a flat screen TV that switched between a fishtank during the day to a fireplace at night (hysterical), we were ushered into...

Have just returned from a celebratory meal at the restaurant. The food was outstanding, the service friendly without being over-attentive, and compared with restaurants in other cities, the value for money was exceptional. I just owsh I could afford to go more frequently!
