Our stay here was very disappointing and we were glad it was for one night only.
We booked a Royal Room which is supposedly one of their premium rooms. It was so small that there was no room for even one armchair. To watch TV you had to sit on the bed. It did not have a bad view; it had no view at all as the station roof blocked out the window.
Breakfast was like eating in a canteen - everything was DIY.
The only member of staff we met was the receptionist and she seemed to relish being unable to help with any request. Highland hospitality was entirely lacking.
Even its excellent location next to the railway station will not tempt us to stay here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Royal Highland Hotel is the oldest hotel in the centre of the Highland capital, Inverness. In 2000, the property was carefully restored, retaining its unique character associated with the bygone age. As soon as you enter the hotel you will appreciate this. In the foyer the grand staircase, the inspiration for the Titanic's staircase, leads to the 84 spacious refurbished bedrooms - all with very high ceilings. The decor is rich with traditional furniture and deep colours. The rooms all have soft furnishings and antique style furniture. The excellent bathrooms are generally medium to large in size. For over 151 years, the hotel has been looking after travellers from all over the world. Perhaps its popularity stems from the fact the hotel is a grand place to stay. Large bedrooms, large lounge areas, quiet meeting rooms, good food, prime location and friendly staff all play their part. All local amenities close to hand, but within a 5 minute drive you are out into the dramatic Highlands. Lochness is only 7 miles from the hotel. ... more less
