We stayed here for two nights on a weekend break deal with dinner included one night.
The Hotel is well located within 2/3 minutes walk of the centre / shops.
The Hotel appears to be well staffed (in terms of numbers), all of whom we found very pleasant and helpful.
The room was large & very clean. We stayed in room to the rear of the Hotel so missed out on the views over the River Ness to the front. I was not very happy with the door lock on the room - i did not feel it was very secure & would not recommend leaving valuables in the room.
The pool is a good size, as is the gym which was well equipped. There is also a sauna / steam room within the spa.
Breakfast was excellent - good choice & quality.
Dinner - we had a very poor experience, but note previous positive comments on here so will put it down to 'Chefs night off' - we received a full refund for dinner & our complaint was handled well.
As previous reviewers note, drinks in the Hotel bar are very expensive. There are several bars / restaurants nearby as alternatives to this.
The Hotel appears to cater well for coach parties - there was a party of over 50 people during our stay for whom they laid on evening entertainment (singer / keyboard).
Overall, not a bad Hotel with decent spa. I would stay here again but venture out for dinner.
