“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed March 17, 2008

I seem to have spent most of March this year in hotels in Inverness!!!
Checked into the new Drummossie Hotel last week for two nights as part of another large group and I have to say it was fantastic.
Checkin was quick, efficient and hassle free. We were directed to the lifts with our luggage but we later found the closer stairwell which led us directly to our room on the first floor.

Our room was large and had twin beds which were very close together but this can soon be altered by moving the bedside cabinets which are not fixed and moving the beds slightly. There are comfortable chairs in each room, television, tea service tray including cafetiere and filter coffees and lush biscuits.

There is no drawer space in the room at all but there is a large wardrobe with sliding doors which also has a shelving area within for the items you would normally put in drawers. There are two large wine glasses, whisky glasses, and proper glasses in the bathrooms unlike some hotels now.

On arrival every room has a decanter and whisky which is free of charge for the enjoyment of guests. We found this to be a lovely touch and totally unexpected. Turn down service at night also has a bottle of whisky so they can give you a top up if required.

Meals were lovely, self service cold buffet and also a hot buffet breakfast menu. Both evening meals were nice although it seems that everything I don't like or am allergic to was on the menu both nights so I settled for the vegetarian option which was fantastic.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone to stay in and would love to return here, the only downside is it is quite far out of the town and any person staying here really needs to have the use of a car, or plenty money for a taxi!!!

  • Liked — Fantastic bathrooms with separate shower, nice toiletries, everything else!!!
  • Disliked — No leisure facilities.
