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

Went here for a meal one evening after having it recommended to us and wow! Absolutely blown away by service we had. Bonnie young lassie called Sam made sure everything we wanted was perfect. Couldn't ask for more - everything cooked to absolute bliss and the wine selection was awesome. Shame about the location but most made of what they... More

My wife and I stayed here for a special anniversary and was gutted we could only have one night here! Everything was special about this place, but most of all the room.

What a great place! Staff were fantastic - very attentive and friendly. It's not often I've been met at my car on arrival - nice touch. Room was awesome. We stayed in room 5, which we recommend as the best room. Very stylish with a hot tub on the balcony. Beds turned down every night, reservations made, breakfast cooked to... More

We spent one night here in a comfortable "HIP" room, which was tastefully and comfortably furnished. The staff was friendly and the location convenient, though not in walking distance to anywhere of interest. While on a main street, traffic quieted considerably by nightfall.

A beautiful luxury boutique hotel close to the centre of Inverness. Very comfortable room with large bathroom and private hot tub. Very happy with the bedroom and hot tub but the balcony is needing some maintenance - paintwork etc. and some more luxurious chairs on the balcony would have been nice. Only had breakfast in the restaurant and it was... More

Where to start on this fantastic hotel??? We spent one night here before heading on to Glasgow and Edinburgh and compared every other place we stayed in Scotland to this one.
