I really loved the atmosphere at this hotel, undoubtedly the hippest hotel in Inverness. Right from the moment you walk in, you know its a unique place. I really enjoyed the lounge areas, the breakfasts were great and I would have loved to have hung out on the patio if the weather had cooperated. The room decor is "spare" but... More

Central hotel, short walk from bus & train station or close to multi storey car park, close to all shops, restaurants and nightlife. Friendly atmosphere and lovely staff very helpful. Rooms are basic but clean and comfy beds.

We had high expectations based on the reviews and pictures. Upon arrival, we were informed there was no parking available (we specifically chose this hotel because it stated there WAS parking available. Once we found the parking garage, walked back to the hotel and went to our room, the disappointment continued. The room was clean, but very dated and spartan.... More

Nice located in city centre. Furnishing room poor, terible beds, much to small. Staff not very welcoming. Seems as they are only in it for the money. Breakfast was OK, diner and drinks more than overpriced. payed 2.30 pound for a small bottle of mineral water!!

We were shocked to find our £189 very small double room did not even include breakfast. But the staff were charming and it was clean. . ( I'm also not sure why I have to spend so much time filling in this review. Why 222 characters??)

The check in and check out in the bar is awful. Personal at reception very unkind and unpleasant. The lobby bar is nice but the photo on the web site is not the real one. The gim is small but good....

We found this hotel to be very overpriced for what we received, in particular the rooms were very small, the beds quite uncomfortable and there was a lot of noise outside our room at night and early in the morning. The lobby was nice, the breakfast good and the service friendly but not worth what we paid.

Paying almost £200/room without breakfast I think this room is very expensive especially when you pay extra for breakfast and they run out of food. The 2 staff members at reception were working very hard as also sorting out the food. We had two rooms and asked for a extra guilt/sheet which I had to call twice to get it.

The room was incredibly small. There was no closet, just a short rod on the wall. There were no storage drawers. Good for a one-night stay, but if you staying a long time and you have a big suitcase, it is rough. Very very very expensive for what you get.
