Not worth the exorbitant price charged for a basic place.The location is very good as it's within walking distance of the town centre.Room was clean but very basic.Everywhere else was in need of a face-lift. Very outdated decor.For the price we were paying we were expecting at the very least three star accommodation. A residents lounge would have been nice... More

I highly recommend this hotel, near the city centre, good food and service. In the happy event I have to come back to Inverness, I certainly will come back to Cheiftain Hotel. The bar area is very good with plenty thing to do.

A hotel in an ideal location particularly with good access to main routes to the North. The staff were attentive and the food could not be faulted. This was a haven during a severe weather storm and provided everything we needed to ensure that we didn't have to venture out into that storm.

This was definitely value for money, with a great breakfast option for vegetarians, and friendly helpful staff. Improvements could be information in the room eg WIFI code, location of hair dryer (on request) and some drawers to put things in. Staff were very helpful and it was a quick five minute walk from town.

Still disapointed as I could only speak for the room I was given whish would have been ok for one night ad it not been for the "en-suite". I have no wish to comment further, if this does not suffice then so be it.

My wife and I and another couple stayed at the chieftain on our way to Orkney. We had a very pleasant stay. Without exception the staff were welcoming and very friendly. We had two dogs with us who were also welcomed with enthusiasm. This is truly a dog friendly hotel. Our rooms were clean, large and well equipped. We had... More

Average hotel, good location, let down by noise from the bar below, room was okay but very standard, nice tip was the iron Bru and water. Breakfast was good enough but very strange when my toast was just placed on the side of my breakfast plate and not on a toast rack.
