The hotel was very comfortable if a bit old fashioned in decoration. We had a large room overlooking the car park at the front. Bathroom was very clean but the shower a bit weak. Used to a power shower in this type of hotel. There was no shampoo in the toiletries so glad we had taken our own. We were given some the next day though. Bizarrely there were no drawers for storage - just shelves in the wardrobe. These were very dusty and I had to clean them first before using them. Bed was comfortable. The lounge areas were nice and there was a wedding the day we arrived. Plenty of space not to feel overwhelmed by guests.
Breakfast the first day was spoiled by the waitress who took my husband's order and started taking mine and was disgraced by people entering the dining room. She turned her back therefor missing me saying I would have the same as my husband with a potato scone and fried egg. He got a full breakfast, I got a potato scone and fried egg!!!! I was too shocked to say anything.
The Maitre d' gave us good advice on sight seeing around Inverness.
We had dinner the first night and it was delicious. The service was first class.
The hotel web page suggested it was 5 minutes from the station. It is actually 41/2 miles from Inverness and even a car was pushed to do it in 5 minutes. We walked and had to get a taxi back. The walk in to the town is not very scenic so probably not worth it as there are much nicer walks along the river. We did enjoy the stay but could have been better.
