Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Kingsmills Hotel garners praise for its service, with staff members frequently lauded for their friendliness and professionalism. Nestled close to the Highlands and a golf course, its location is a highlight for guests seeking easy town access and scenic views. However, despite the spacious and comfortable rooms, some guests have pointed out issues with noise disruptions and questioned the hotel's value, citing steep prices for the experience offered. Cleanliness is a strong suit, with the hotel maintaining spotless accommodations and common areas. Nevertheless, some visitors suggest the amenities could benefit from updates and improved consistency in service.

Your staff are such an asset. All staff in every department are so kind, courageous, and friendly. My husband is disabled and they all offered to help when necessary. We stayed in a luxury room and everything was great. We had breakfast twice each morning food excellent good choices. We also had dinner one night in the restaurant and another night in the lounge bar both excellent. We also had sandwiches one lunch time. Hotel is lovely and I suitable for everyone.

Stunning hotel with very attentive staff. Will not hesitate to return soon. Close to Inverness centre but far enough away to feel rural, with an 18 hole golf course next door. Food was exceptional and wine choice was phenomenal.

I used to always stay here enroute to home further north (as a treat.) Will be last time. As per previous review it is tired. And seems without customer care. I was allocated an accessible room with shower seat & raised wc emergency pull cords.I had not requested! I was expecting an en-suite with bath asked to be moved in arrival-nothing was available apparently!

Lovely hotel, relaxing environment, polite and friendly staff all around. Spacious room, had our dog stay with us and the patio room with outside access was ideal. Had dinner in Whisky bar lounge, service and food was good, breakfast was also tasty. We made use of the leisure facilities, were as you would expect and a pleasant experience… Overall had a very enjoyable stay, value for money and would stay again. Thank you

I was in Inverness overnight, and needed the car fully charged to continue my journey in the morning, and the Kingsmills was one of only two city hotels offering destination chargers to guests. Arriving I was pleased to see that the hotel ensures that chargers are not obstructed by non-charging vehicles, which I was rather glad of because with a big event going on at the hotel, there were precious few parking spaces available when I arrived shortly after check in time. This only got worse during the rest of the evening with way more cars trying to park than spaces available, probably my biggest criticism of the hotel is that with the hotel full and the hotel hosting a large event, the parking is inadequate. It was pretty clear leaving early the next morning that a number of spaces had been occupied by event visitors leaving later arriving overnight guests with nowhere to safely park. Moving on, the reception were friendly and helpful, and I was put in a room in the older part of the hotel towards the front. The room was large, clean, and had been refurbished with a modern bathroom, and comfortable bed. The shower was good, but as might be expected in an older building lacking in water pressure a bit. The main thing lacking was any sort of power outlet or USB connection by the bed - the lights all use an old style three round pin socket, and there were only standard sockets on the desk, so there was nowhere to plug my phone in overnight. I had an evening meal via room service which was excellent, and swiftly delivered, and breakfast was a well stocked buffet with a large choice of hot and cold items. In summary it was a great stopover, and whilst in my case making use of the EV destination chargers meant parking wasn't an issue for myself, ensuring that hotel guests are able to safely park by managing parking better for big events being held at the hotel needs to be looked at.

Very comfortable room (spacious and well kept) and excelent restaurant in house. The staff is very friendly and the spa is definitely a plus. There is a big parking at the hotel and there are also plug for EV. The location is not so close to downtown but it is known before booking so this is not a minus. I strongly recommend it.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Luxury King Room (406). Our room had an adjoining door to the next room which was made of very thin material. There was a toddler in the next room which meant that for both mornings we were woken up by either a crying toddler or loud videos playing from the said room around 5am and 6am. The rooms around us also had small children which made the hallway noisy. I am surprised that we (a couple) were placed in between all the families with small children and toddlers especially since the hotel is big. The room itself is beautifully decorated and recently refurbished. The amenities were okay and for a luxury room there were no slippers and bathrobes but of course this was not a big deal. The hotel itself is at an amazing location if you have a car to drive around as it’s close to all attractions. If not, you would have to walk to the city centre (about 30 mins walk) or get a taxi. The pool was a nice bonus but the changing rooms were very poorly maintained and floor was dirty and wet + muddy. There was no life guard on duty when we went (Sunday afternoon) - the pool was shallow for adults but might be something to note for children. Breakfast was very poor for a 4 star hotel. We only added on our breakfast on the day of check out and found out that the chef for the morning just returned from his day off and personally I think it was reflected on the state of the food. Hot dishes were either overcooked or poorly made such as the mushrooms, scrambled eggs, and sausages. We paid £35 for two people and it was definitely not worth it. The staffs were great and friendly. Check in was easy and quick even during peak hours. House keeping was also excellent by Oksana. The lounge might benefit from an expansion since it’s heavily used and always busy even in February. Parking is relatively easy but still busy which might be problematic in the warmer months as there will be more people. Overall, as a couple, the stay was average for us due to the reasons above which hopefully can be noted of.
