What a fabulous hotel! Not only were the rooms of excellent standard but they were large and included everything you could think of: coffee machine, luxurious toiletries and a fire place! We were humbly surprised by the excellent service, exquisite food and general tone of luxury in this quaint boutique hotel. We would undoubtedly recommend it for drinks at their... More

Stayed here over the new year for four nights, the staff were very very good, always helpful with an excellent attitude, we didn't use the restaurant as both of us were suffering with colds etc but what was offered on the menu looked delicious, the hotel is not the cheapest but certainly well worth the extra.

Wonderful staff, lovely rooms, the best food and a fun bar. Can't recommend it highly enough. It's not the cheapest but worth every penny. Sorry walk downhill to the town centre. Slightly more effort required on the way back but a small price to pay.

Lovely food in a lovely place for our son's 3rd birthday. Nice little attention from the chef. Thanks again we had a nice time on our stop in Inverness. Would recommend the place to anyone. A bit pricey but it worth it.

We used an Itison voucher for a fabulous Sunday night stay at Rocpool Reserve. I asked if I could upgrade to an extra decadent room, which was no problem, but cost an extra £50, but it was well worth it.
