We spent last weekend at this hotel and had a lovely time. I had bought the deal last year and it had to be redeemed before 5th April but circumstances prevented us from being able to travel then. When I contacted the hotel to ask if the deal could be extended they fitted us in a month later which was great. Our room was excellent, we had the usual tea coffee tray but also had little extras; different teas, sparkly & still bottled water, hot chocolate (although we only had one and not 2) and little biscuits. The bathroom was a great size with complementary toiletries.
Our deal included a 2 course meal for 2, 2 cocktails and a bottle of wine and was thoroughly enjoyable. I had the chicken stuffed with haggis sitting on a bed of mash and surrounded by a beautiful sauce.
The staff were friendly and the buffet breakfast catered for everyone with hot and cold foods, various teas and coffees. Yes, the juice, coffees and such came from a machine and you had to make your own toast, so what!. I can't believe the feedback from some people, we had a lovely breakfast and the coffee was lovely, even if it did come from a machine. (all you had to do was walk over and press a button - no problem)
Such a welcoming, cosy place to stay with an olde worlde feel and a beautiful staircase.
I would definately go back to this hotel, better than the cold feeling of modern new hotels with much higher prices. We had to come on the train from Glasgow but the hotel is right next door and the only thing that spoiled the weekend was the rain but you cant control the weather (although some people would even blame a hotel for that)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Royal Highland Hotel is the oldest hotel in the centre of the Highland capital, Inverness. In 2000, the property was carefully restored, retaining its unique character associated with the bygone age. As soon as you enter the hotel you will appreciate this. In the foyer the grand staircase, the inspiration for the Titanic's staircase, leads to the 84 spacious refurbished bedrooms - all with very high ceilings. The decor is rich with traditional furniture and deep colours. The rooms all have soft furnishings and antique style furniture. The excellent bathrooms are generally medium to large in size. For over 151 years, the hotel has been looking after travellers from all over the world. Perhaps its popularity stems from the fact the hotel is a grand place to stay. Large bedrooms, large lounge areas, quiet meeting rooms, good food, prime location and friendly staff all play their part. All local amenities close to hand, but within a 5 minute drive you are out into the dramatic Highlands. Lochness is only 7 miles from the hotel. ... more less
