              5.8

              The location.

              Communication between hotel staff seemed poor. Nobody told me what the breakfast arrangements were the first morning, so I sat at a table (having been offered tea or coffee) until I noticed someone coming from another room, having helped themself. There was also a mix up with lunch on our course the first day, and with coffee the second day. There seemed to be a blame culture too (not good!) i.e. 'nobody told us.....'.

            • Couple
              7.4

              great location, right on the river accross the castle. Easy access to the town center.

              Free wi fi internet access. Floors. Bathroom taps.

              Location, friendly and efficient staff, excellent food, comfortable bar.

              The strict 3pm check-in time. Noon would suit me better.

            • Group of friends
              9.0

              The Hotel was very central for sightseeing and shopping and the view of the river was beautiful.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              The Hotel was in an ideal position right on the River Ness with plenty of riverside walks and it was also very close to the shopping centre. All the staff in the Hotel were very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice.

              The rooms were clean and a reasonable size but could do with a little TLC.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              Central to everything.

              No hot water in shower sat morning/fire door banging outside room most of the night room 212 2/floor. apart from this hotel was ok

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              the location as it was in the centre of Inverness and easy access for shops and able to walk along the river

            • Single
              10.0

              Excellent room, well appointed. Excellent TV channel selection. Food very good, both buffett breakfast and evening dinner. Staff helpfull. Superb location. Free parking permit at nearby Cathedral car park. Fine range of Malt Whiskies in the bar. Relaxing atmosphere.

            • Single
              8.8

              Conveniently located just across the river from the town centre on a quiet street with a variety of restaurants nearby. I arrived mid morning and although check-in not allowed before 15:30 I was allowed to leave my luggage in the lobby area albeit at my risk. Similarly on departure luggage could be left after check-out. Very useful when travelling on public transport.

              Whilst the room was clean and of reasonable size, some guides on the shower cubicle doors were broken/missing making it difficult to close them. They had obviously been in this state for some time. I reported this to reception on checkout but would expect a hotel of this star rating to have a more pro-active maintenance policy. The bed was also too firm for my liking.

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              location is great and for £44 for 2 was good value, compared to a travel lodge it was good.

              Room showed signs of water damage from outside, window was in very poor condition and toilet seat not fitted properly.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              Excellent location, friendly efficient staff and a good bar. The hotel represented good value for money.

              Bathroom was a bit tired

            • Family with children
              7.8

              The staff were helpful and polite.The breakfast was of a good standard and the staff were efficient and friendly

              The beds were not hugely comfortable.

            • Couple
              5.0

              The staff is very limited. The reception employer also works at the restaurant in the morning serving the breakfast! We were given a "Suite" wich was huge but didn't have double windows and we heard the noise coming from the harbour that stays in front of the road! Also didn't had emergency plans and plants at the room. We also had a huge door in our room that gives room to another division where we could here noise. I think it was quite expensive for the quality that was offer.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              Food and service in dining room for evening meal was excellent

              Beautiful location spoilt by lack of parking for people with mobility issues.
