Two night stay at Rocpool Reserve hotel on our Scotland vacation. A wonderful hotel with an excellent restaurant. Quiet location close to downtown Inverness. Staff very attentive. Breakfast is included as most hotels, and it is gourmet. Our stay was too superlative to continue writing.

We would highly recommend Rocpool Reserve hotel for your stay in Inverness, Scotland. This boutique hotel is small and very elegant.

What a fabulaous restaurant. We were served beautiful canapés before our meal. Our cousin is celiac and the staff were so considerate. All canapés, and courses were scrutinised for gluten and gluten free alternatives were provided by the chef. The food was fabulous, and the presentation was excellent. Beautiful decor and comfortable surroundings. Must visit.

The food, service and ambience were simply superb. The management of the hotel could not have been more accommodating. This venue rightly has a reputation built by none other than Michel Roux, and despite his being London based this is a diamond in the Highlands

We arrived quite late from a long drive from Edinburgh. Our check-in was prompt and we were escorted to our room. Our room was quiet and comfortable. We went to the back bar for a drink and enjoyed the ambiance and the attending staff member was friendly and prompt. We enjoyed a simple breakfast in the dining room. It is... More

This was a special treat for three of us and on arrival at 7.00 we were amazed to be the only table in the dining area. We had enjoyed the delicious canapés in the bar.
