Ideal for our short break
Very clean and excellent location. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Ideal for our few days away. We were also temp checked on arrival and there were plebty of precautions in place regarding the current virus situation. Parking on site was very limited, but staff were very helpful in directing us to the nearest car park (2 minutes walk away at most). Would stay again.

Super stay
I had a super stay, my room was clean, cosy and warm, great shower and tv. Receptionist was friendly and efficient. Slight downside was £9 continental breakfast, they couldn't give me toast and the set out choice wouldn't of been mine,went nearby for breakfast and got my toast but for the overall price I'm okay with it

My second visit to this awesome hotel in October. Friendly staff who welcomed me back. Beautiful classic double room with city view. Very clean and comfortable bed. Inverness Railway Station is right next to the hotel. Buildings are connected. EASTGATE SHOPPING CENTRE is around the corner less than 3 minutes walk.
