    The room we had was lovely,whixh was an Executive,wer wre booked for a twin room but changed, worth paying that wee bit extra for, the views from it was excellent, looking right acroos the river, and the view of the castle. Location was excellent, you walked over the bridge and the town was on on your doorstep, restaurants all close at hand. Breakfast was self service of which we personally prefer, and enough choices there for a breakfast. The reception staff and waitress/.waiter were all very pleasant.

    We found the staff were excellent at the hotel - reception was very welcoming and the breakfast staff were lovely and helpful. There was a good selection at breakfast something for everyone! The Hotel is in an excellent location - just a few mins walk to the town centre, yet far enough away to feel as though you were in the country. The setting overlooking the river is beautiful. We will be coming to stay again and have recommended you to our friends who are planning a trip to Inverness!! We had the relaxing break we needed - thank you!

    There was nothing about the Hotel we didnt like!!

    Good response from reception staff in relation to altered booking date and provision of meeting facilities. The restaurant staff were attentive and well-presented. We had one of the rooms overlooking the river which was ideal and had one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have encountered yet!

    This is a Victorian hotel with obvious limitations as to what can be achieved within the existing shell. The room furnishings are somewhat 'tired' and the bathrooms could do with a revamp.

    Very good

    The receptionist was kindly. The location was good. We can see Inverness Castle from the hotel was over the Ness river. The Ness river around the hotel was beautiful. There were nice restaurant and pub near the hotel.

    We did not feel the inconvenience at this hotel.

    Fabulous

    The location, overlooking the river and castle and close to the city centre but without suffering from noise, was excellent. The range of choice and timing of breakfast was also very good. The main reception area was very welcoming as were the staff.
