Charming & convenient hotel, friendly staff
Very pleasantly surprised by this hotel! Friendly staff, warm reception, lovely big dog friendly room for very good price. Definitely errs on charming rather than dated and had a beautiful art collection on display.

A lovely place to stay - will definitely return !
A lovely welcoming hotel with charm and sophistication. Extremely well placed in the centre of Inverness. Staff were very friendly, the room was warm and clean, the reception / lounge bar area was very comfortable. The staircase was so grand it called out for a photo opportunity for myself and my friends. Would whole heartedly recommend staying here.

Good value for money
Very nice hotel, we booked small room which unfortunately didn't have any drawers for storage and the window was painted closed. Clean and warm room.

Charming and central
Very central hotel, full of character. Was upgraded because my room wasn’t ready/available. The room was a spacious corner room with lovely old triple windows. Sadly, one of them was stuck open creating a serious draught but worse...an extremely noisy Saturday night in the town centre. 4.00am before the street quietened sufficiently to allow sleep! Service in the bar was awful....on ordering a mid afternoon drink I was told the barman was very busy!? I waited for my drink for 15 minutes then left. Such a pity that the service and comfort doesn’t match the character and charm.

general review
on first day it was not possible to take a shower due to only having Luke warm hot water. Internet was pathetic intermittent service and very slow. Shower controls not ideal especially for children as controls very delicate, it was either hot or cold not easy to get a happy medium. I though reception was not keen to help seemed everything a chore. window in room did not shut properly and shook with wind.

OK but a bit hot.
The hotel was lovely on the whole but our room was sooooo hot and stuffy. Even though the heating was off (except in the bathroom). The window wouldn’t open. Bed was rather narrow and my husband felt like he was at risk of falling out all night. And neither of us are particularly big. Bar was good. Reception fine. Luggage storage good.
