We received a two night stay with dinner at Rocpool Reserve Hotel as a wedding present. First impressions of the hotel were excellent. Very well kept and plenty of parking. We were greeted by the manager who checked us in and took the bags to the room whilst we got a drink. We were in room 10 which is a... More

We had two nights here and we're not disappointed. Lovely room with outdoor hot tub. The food is absolutely excellent and very good value for the quality of it. The staff are very helpful and efficient. Nice stroll to the river and shops. Highly recommended.

The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff went above and beyond. I have a friend with severe allergies and the staff created a menu just for her and bought in certain items just for her meal. The atmosphere was lovely and welcoming. The set meal is very good value for money at £31.50 for 3 courses. Would highly... More

My husband and I stayed here and we are not typically 'boutique hotel' people. But we were pleasantly surprised at this very nice gem just down from the Inverness Castle and downtown.

We stayed here for one night during our trip around the Scottish highlands. The outside appearance of the hotel didn't prepare me for the lovely boutique hotel I found inside! Our room had the wow factor, very modern loved it, unfortunately no view but the room more than made up for that. Great location with a short walk into Inverness.... More
