This is the only 5 star hotel in Inverness and is owned by same people as Inverlochy Castle at Fort William. The Rocpool was one of the best hotels on a two week holiday all over Scotland. Much better value than the Inverlochy. Nice boutique hotel, with absolutely brilliant staff, and fantastic food, all in a very informal atmosphere. Would... More

Recently ate in the Chez Roux restaurant for dinner. Reception staff were very friendly and escorted us to the bar. For such a quiet bar we waited a long time for our drinks to be served. Canapés followed our drinks, these were cold and dry and didn't fill me with excitement for our dinner. I opted for the Soufflé Suissesse,... More

pork croquette almost toxic with levels of salt. 32 day matured rib eye steak tender, but devoid of taste and flavour.chips bland and soggy, bearnaise sauce overly salty and more like a paste in consistency. staff pleasant and helpful, food dire. with hindsight i should have returned starter. a memorable meal for the wrong reason.

This place is well located just up the street from the castle and a short walk from the bridge across to the main part of town. The rooms are well appointed with modern conveniences. Food is quite good and staff is very attentive. If I found myself in Inverness in the future I would look no further.

Loved this ultra modern chic hotel with superbly attentive staff! The rooms are huge with every amenity including an electronic fireplace. The restaurant and bar are excellent with large selection of spirits, inventive cuisine and charming decor. Our favorite hotel of a lovely week in Scotland. HIghly recommended.
