The menu is broad with a number of tantalizing choices. One of the few restaurants I've been to where the main entrees were as flavorful and delicious as the first course appetizers. The crabmeat/watermelon/tomato/avocado parfait was brilliant. Main dish of pasta with crabmeat and seafood was fresh, delicious. John Dorey fillet was perfectly cooked with salty feta, tangy roasted tomatoes,... More

We loved everything about Rocpool. We stayed for 3 nights and just loved it. The staff was so wonderful. They were caring, kind, and accommodating. From the moment we walked in til the day we left each staff member treated us as if we were the only people there. The food was impeccable! The rooms were very nice with turn... More

We had just finished walking the West Highland Way and this place was perfect! One of the nicest (and largest) rooms we've ever stayed in. The staff was excellent and very helpful throughout our stay. We highly recommend the Rocpool Reserve!

Last year my wife and I stayed for three nights. This year we extended it to five nights. We did not intend to eat in the hotel every night, but the service and obviously the food were so wonderful we ate here every night. We also had lunch one day, which was superb. If you live in Inverness and have... More

This is a very good hotel. It's not just that the room was unusual and lovely and the dinner delicious. It was that the key element of attentive but subtle service was done exactly right. That needs a very good manager and excellent training. We loved it - and we slept well.

The rocpool is lust a few blocks up a hill from city center and also a few minutes to the very pleasant "islands walk" along and over the River Ness. It is a delightful little property, very well arranged and appointed. Chez Roux restaurant is marvelous. Haven't stayed anywhere else in Inverness, but I can't imagine any place better.

Visited Inverness for an overnight stay in the Rocpool Reserve Hotel. Special occasion (retiral) so booked the premiere room with the hot tub & sauna. Fantastic, loved it, luxurious & hedonistic. Lovely meal in the restaurant too, fine dining & exquisite. Will be returning next year when my partner retires for another night of luxury and excellent food. Would recommend.

This was my second visit, bringing this time my sister, on holiday from New Zealand. We were not disappointed; welcome & ambience were perfect, and the food superb. The icing on the cake was the waiting staff; young, friendly and totally professional in their attitude. It was, as I had hoped, a memorable end to a special trip

Unfortunately we could only stay one night but would have liked to spent a week there. Then room was beautiful and the staff wonderful. A great place to stay to explore Inverness or as a gateway to Loc Ness. We did not have dinner in their restaurant but the breakfast was delicious!

Can't say I'm a big fan of the city of Inverness but maybe I didn't see it properly. Was here for 2 nights. I think this hotel is as good as it gets in Inverness. I believe it's considered luxury, but not by my definition. It was comfortable for sure. Our room had a terrace with a jacuzzi - that... More
