This was our 1st time here and for 1 night.
It's a lovely hotel, and the room was nice too. We are a family of 3 with a 8year old.
Location seem to be great but due to covid the bar area wasn't much and only 1 member of staff so didn't bother.
Lift was also out of service
We did have breakfast which in the end was good but 45 minutes to wait for the breakfast was ridiculous, shortage of staff probably due to covid.
We enjoyed it when it eventually came.

River Ness and Ness Islands are beautiful day and night.

Whilst walking around the islands we found a little sculpture of a leaf man, which was really cute.

Then walking back over there was the town and castle in the background.

On the night time the river is lit up and castle is just stunning.

Very peaceful walk and I will definitely return.

On a recent holiday my family and I stayed in Inverness and enjoyed walks along the beautiful banks of the River Ness. The river is only approx. 6 miles long and flows from the northern end of Loch Ness to Inverness before flowing into the Beauly Firth. There are seats along the banks to relax and enjoy the views.

The River Ness is a river which flows from Loch Ness towards and through Inverness and out into the North Sea.

The area around the river in Inverness is very pretty and well maintained and well worth taking a walk alongside.

There are benches to sit upon and places to grab a coffee and a snack.

Well worth checking out whilst walking round the city as a place to pause and relax.

Had lunch at The Clansman overlooking Loch Ness. Lovely simple lunch of homemade soup and a selection of lovely sandwiches.

We then took the boat trip around the Loch to hunt the Monster.

We encountered the most wonderful scenery that in my long life surpasses much that I have seen before.

I thoroughly recommend this tour

I knew Inverness was a beautiful city, but the River Ness and it's amazing walks just blew me away. I have had the pleasure of visiting many a city around the world that have rivers at their heart. But nothing prepared me for what Inverness had to offer let alone the amazing River Ness. Whether it be day or night, rain or shine, a walk along its Bonnie banks is a breath of fresh air like no other...and take a picnic and hang out on the Ness Islands :)

Lovely walks on both sides of the River Ness with bridges to cross over in many places. You can walk over to the Ness Islands and enjoy the scenery

We took an early-morning walk along both sides of the River Ness from the hotel. Plenty of interest for us on a first visit to Inverness - a delight.

We walked the River from the castle on one side then over the suspension bridge past the cathedral and back into the city.
Very easy walk on the flat with lost of history to read and good views.

A fast flowing river with lots of features that make it a living river with lots of birds and fish 🐟. In the parts that have natural banks it's a proper river some parts going through Inverness it's a bit sterile with block walls and very little features.
