We spent two nights at this hotel and the service was key. The room was nice and the shower was tops. The room had air conditioning that was a treat when we had a hot spurt. The food at the restaurant was delicious and they serve gluten free. But the staff made the stay. They were welcoming and friendly. We... More

Every room is different and unique. It is a beautiful place, but make sure you have an air conditioning unit in your room. Even thought it was cool outside, it could get hot and stuffy. Not all the rooms have a AC unit. If you are traveling with a baby and need a crib, make sure you check the stability... More

Visited with my husband and small dog. The staff went out of their way to make us all feel welcome (including pooch!). We opted for a dinner bed and breakfast package which was great value. Car parking available and well within walking distance of the town centre. Amazing hotel and amazing food, well worth a visit.

This is truly a wonderful hotel. It is small and therefore there's the equivalent of one to one service. The staff is fantastic and each staff member knew exactly who we were and which room we were in. We had special meal requirements and they were so helpful in accommodating us. The room was beautiful and comfortable. If you find... More

Only stayed for 1 night whilst traveling further north on vacation but we really enjoyed the experience of the restaurant and the hotel - The only problem we had was, being light sleepers, the staff commenced in a nearby service room at 06.15 making much noise for at least 1 hour so we were tired when we finally awoke at...

This place impresses every time and I keep returning. The set menu is great value and always delicious and encourages me to try different foods. I can't recommend enough they are so friendly and accommodating. I would suggest booking in advance as its really popular and a must try when in the area.

We were taken to the bar for some cocktails which I have to mention they were delicious. the barman was very polite and attentive with a good knowledge of the drinks.... More

I’m not a great fan of eating out at lunchtime, at least not in proper restaurants. It makes a big hole in the day, ruins the appetite for an evening meal and — for me — is fatal to afternoon productivity. However the Rocpool Chez Roux restaurant in Inverness has won so many plaudits for its food, my wife and... More

We'd been looking to visit the Chez Roux restaurant for some time and Friday night's experience was certainly worth the wait. We were met at the door and escorted to R Bar. Aperitifs, olives/baked broad beans and amuse bouche (delightful sweetcorn panna cotta served with mini fishcake ball) were then served in this bright, contemporary, comfortable area. This gave us...
