Stayed here twice at the beginning and end of my holiday. The first night it was so hot in our room and wasn't impressed at having to make up our sofa bed for the children to sleep on. The second night was a lot better. Warm welcome by the staff who explained your policy about the sofa bed and kindly... More

Easy check in, rooms were very nice and clean. Breakfast was good, hot English and decent croissants. Staff was most friendly. We really only checked in at 10pm and out by 8.30am, so it would be unfair to pick faults I did not experience. We were offered a quick supper but did not need it.

If you are on business this place is ok. However if your not forget it. It's out in the middle of nowhere next to a busy road that you will hear since you need to open your window for cool air. Nice clean place with standard hi breakfast and a full bar

If ever the word 'average' applied to a hotel this would fit the bill perfectly. That's not to say that there is anything wrong with this accommodation, far from it, but it does rather lack that little something to make it stand out. Staff were pleasant enough although apart from checking in and out we had little contact with them.... More

Located outside of town, a short bus ride or reasonably metered cab ride, it offers small, clean rooms. It has all basic amenities including standard European breakfast (with baked beans of course). An Extra Tesco is within a very short walking distance.

This hotel is two miles away from the center in Inverness and ideal if you have a car. The rooms are fine - simple with all the amenities you would expect, a modern bathroom with walk in shower.

Nice hotel, Holiday Inns all look the same, as this was a last minute booking we got a room with 2 single beds, bed and pillows were comfortable and we both had a good nights sleep, room was quiet, no road noise. Breakfast was okay. Price wise for what we received was far too high
