The hotel was very nice. Reception and staff were friendly and helpful, and my room (#305) was clean and comfortable. The hotel has electric heating, which I found unusual, and my room took a while to get warm at night. (So when you walk in, switch on the heat and it should be nice and warm by bedtime!) Breakfast was a buffet and was nice. They charged £12 for 24 hours of wireless internet, which is extortion to me. I ate dinner both nights in the bar downstairs, and the food was wonderful. The service was great too. The hotel is very central to Inverness and easy to access. I would stay here again.
