This hotel has a great location. It is situated on the river Ness facing the castle. The receptionist, who had very lovely Scottish accent, welcomed us. The room was clean with a cosy interior. We had a good rate. These are the positives. Now, the bed was very squeaky and the mattress was way too far from being new and comfortable. Walls were thin, so we could here our neighbours chatting in their room and people talking in the corridor. The bathroom was spacious, but the wallpaper fell of the wall; it was very difficult to set up the shower and there was rust around the waterspout. At the end of our vacation we had to spend one more night in Inverness but we decided to choose a different hotel.
