3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Nice hotel with courteous staff but the lounge is soleless and bar service is slow and speradic. Bedroom was lovely and food was good but overpriced. Mixed bag really but the management should do something to bring some life to the lounge. It's like a morgue.

I stayed with my wife for one night. Room was well equipped, clean and neat. Staff were helpful with the luggage and guided us to the nearby places. We liked the bathroom which we found quite spacious. Room was nicely heated. Breakfast was good. What we would have liked is a bit of personal touch and warmth but overall we... More

The Drumossie hotel for us was a mixed bag. The parking was plentiful and the reception when we arrived was polite and helpful. The ambience of the hotel lounge was good. Our room was large and had a view of the back gardens. The bed was comfortable. There was only 1 socket to use to charge iPhone and iPad or... More

Very comfortable hotel. Hotel is a few miles out of Inverness, but as we had car that was no problem. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful with directions. We had great service during breakfast and dinner in the restaurant. Room was quite spacious with very modern bathroom with all amenities. Would recommend this hotel as a base to explore... More

We visited this hotel this past weekend for a treat for my mums 75th birthday. She is disabled and therefore we had quite specific needs which this hotel met completely. The hotel is very traditional but very clean and comfortable. The staff are on the whole very helpful and friendly although there was one receptionist who we asked to arrange... More

This is a conference centre / large function / wedding venue hotel and the rooms are there to support this. Very annoyingly the wifi is terrible and the staff made all sorts of excuses to multi guests who were complaining about the lack of connectivity. This is totally unacceptable in the day and age and can easily be sorted by... More

An odd hotel. Nice large rooms and big shower. The rest is the issue. A damp smell greets you in reception. There is on public room which serves as a lounge and bar... though there is no bar but you can get drinks. The restaurant is expensive yet only had a choice of 4 main courses. Just as well there...

We enjoyed 2 nights at this hotel for a family trip. The hotel was nice, but nothing spectacular. Staff was not overly helpful or approachable. Breakfast was okay, but we'd definitely had better experiences. The room was fine, but air conditioning or even a fan of some sort would have been welcome with the stuffy air in the room. A... More

Stayed here one night last month during a visit around Scotland. It was a pleasant stay with comfortable accommodation. A warm welcome and everything good. The room was a good size and clean. Would recommend.
