As a last minute booking we stayed on Hogmanay at the Heathmount.

Initial thought, with reception in the bar, was a little disappointing however the friendly staff quickly checked us in and showed us to our room.

Room was large and well furnished; large double bed was very comfortable. Minor niggle with noisy radiator in the bathroom but easily solved by simply turning down the thermostat a little.

We booked our meal early to attend a concert and therefore the dining area was quiet. However the set menu, specially in place for Hogmanay, had varied choices and each of our selections arrived well cooked and presented. Excellent value for £30.00 each.

Evening entertainment (disco) and atmosphere was good; friendly locals without the drunken "loons".

Power shower quickly dispelled any sleepiness and full cooked breakfast certainly set us up for the day.

All told a well run, comfortable and reasonbly priced hotel.

This hotel was recommended to us by friends of ours from Canada, they said we would love it, and we were not disappointed! The room was great, the food was amazing and the staff were so friendly and helpful! We would definitely come back to this well run boutique hotel.

Have never stayed here, but have enjoyed a couple of meals. The food is good and reasonably priced. The scallops starter was generous, with four decent sized scallops. The ale is good, and there is a nice atmosphere.

The room we had at the Heathmount was lovely - very elegant (brown decor) with all the mod cons. Our recommendation though is not to have room 2 because it's right above the kitchen which means that there's a fan/vent outside the window and it's uncomfortably hot in the room all the time. We ate out at a very nice curry house called Rajah. For breakfast the bakery delivery arrived late so they gave me chilli bread toasted. Weird and gave me heartburn all day. We didn't find the place too noisy but it was a Monday night and it was handy for walking into town, without having to pay central Inverness prices. I would go back (to a different room)

A friend and I stayed here for one night whilst visiting other friends. From the initial phone call to make the booking we knew this would be a great place - the service was so friendly.
Our room, a twin, was very purple - as it shows on the website. One friend said it was like being inside a plum. And the cherubs on the bathroom ceiling were very kitch. But it had everything we wanted - including bathrobes and slippers, iron and ironing board, free water and biscuits, toiletries, a radio and so on. I travel every week and rarely find all these amenities outside a 5* hotel. The morning breakfast was fab, with a choice of newspapers to read. I thoroughly recommend this little gem.

This hotel has a cool rooms and a very friendly staff. Each of the hotel's 7 rooms is decorated differently - nothing ordinary here. One room is almost all black, others have vibrant colors. Each has a comfy bed(s), robes, flat screen TV, updated bathroom, and light tea set (teapot, tea, fresh fruit, cookies). Everything worked, plenty of light and plenty of outlets. Stayed here as part of a 6-person group. Together, we had about half the hotel, so I got to see several of the rooms. The staff is among the friendliest and most welcoming I have ever experienced anywhere. Fiona (the owner) was so easy to talk with, and the staff offered great suggestions for dinner and places to visit around the city. We even got suggestions for places to stop while in Edinburgh (on our way there). Each turned out to be exactly as described - and just what we were looking for. The whole place has an 'art-deco dropped in Scotland' feel to it. The staff recognized our group was together, so they had a large table ready for us at breakfast each day. Do not miss the breakfast - plenty of options, fresh-cooked, and very tasty. Be sure to try the bacon roll and tatty scones - you won't be disappointed. Overall, the property is well cared-for, the staff is excellent, and I wouldn't hesitate to book another stay.
