located a little way out of the centre of town but in a quiet location which was what was required. Staff were very helpful and attentive and without any prompting looked up information on travel and road conditions for our onward journey, which was much appreciated.

We had our wedding at this hotel at the weekend. It was absolutely fantastic, the manager Robert could not do enough for us, the food was delicious (both nights) and staff were friendly. The rooms were spacious and clean and the garden is beautiful, perfect place for photos. My father is disabled and the hotel catered for all his needs and nothing was a problem. Cannot rate highly enough and will return again.

Lovely quiet hotel. We arrived and were taken straight to our rooms in a separate modern block. I was initially a bit disappointed as the original building has such character, but the rooms were just fantastic and the view over the garden was to die for. The decor was tasteful and elegant, everywhere was spotlessly clean and the bed was gigantic and very comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights here. The staff were uniformly pleasant and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. There was a minor problem with the room we were allocated so they immediately offered us a free upgrade and compensation for our inconvenience. Breakfast was excellent. We would thoroughly recommend this as a base for Inverness

Room Tip: We had a junior suite in the modern garden extension

A fantastic 19th century hotel with the best breakfast possible. The staff were friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Although there is no elevator for the second story the stair climb was OK. Next to the hotel is a beautiful garden area which is viewable during meals in the restaurant area. A very nice bar is located within the restaurant/lobby area. The hotel has facilities for group meetings and events. On the day we arrived a wedding was taking place which was a great experience to view. There are a variety of room options for singles and doubles. There was a mild amount of noise from car traffic early in the morning (front rooms only) but the noise was not annoying. Parking, wifi, and breakfast were provided with the room.
Dinner is extra and well worth the cost. The town of Inverness is only a 5 minute drive away and includes many sights and restaurants. This is a good location for the two hour drive around Loch Ness (with potential views of Nessie).

Room Tip: If you want a Garden view or a ground level floor there will be an extra charge. If you demand ab...

We had planned to stay here for a quick one night visit. However, after being here for a few hours we quickly decided to extend our stay. When we arrived in the parking log in the early afternoon a traditional Scottish wedding was about to begin in the hotel. It was a beautiful wedding party with a bagpipe player and male guests wearing traditional kilts. We stayed in the parking lot for a few minutes just to enjoy watching the festivities. Once we went inside the check-in process was very quick and easy. We had selected one of the less expensive rooms in the old building knowing there was no lift. However, the staff was quick to help us with our luggage. Although our room is somewhat small, there is enough space for two of us to move around freely, with room for the suitcases. The bathroom is a bit small with limited vanity space but it functions well. The grounds surrounding the hotel are lovely and spacious and, weather permitting, a great place to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. The internet works extremely well in the guest rooms and is very fast. We had dinner in the restaurant tonight and it was absolutely delicious. Although it was not on the menu the staff was very kind to make me a green dinner salad. I had the chicken breast with an incredibly tasty sauce which I can highly recommend. Staying at this hotel is a lovely and charming experience and we would definitely stay here again in the future.
