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. The staff went above and beyond to do everything they could for us from trying to track down our lost bags at the airport to loaning us electronic convertors... More

A true luxury boutique with little competition in town. Whilst the hotel is excellent, the gem is Albert Roux's cuisine complemented by friendly and efficient service. A little out if the way but still within walking distance of the town centre and it's attractions, with easy road access

My husband and I and two other couples stayed here for one night after walking the Great Glen Way.

Recently spent 2 nights at the Rocpool, and would happily commend it to anyone visiting Inverness. Very well located, about 5 minutes walk to the centre of town, very comfortable rooms, friendly staff, on site parking & the restaurant where we enjoyed one of the best meals of our (7 week) trip. Really pleased with this hotel.

Stayed here at the start and the end of a short trip to explore the Highlands and had 2 different rooms, both very comfortable with interesting features like the downstairs bathroom and air con to save opening the window and hearing the traffic noise.
