Property Description

One minute from alighting the train, 15 minutes from Inverness airport, and nestling in the vibrant and modern Highland capital of Scotland, is a true delight, a friendly, welcoming, real Scottish hotel of magnetic character and charm. And Inverness hotels just don’t come more central than this., adjacent to Railway Station and shopping centre. Limited parking on site however nearby secure car parking (please ask for directions)

Guests savor two feasts here: the unmistakable hospitality and classical culinary experience of this grand hotel - and the freedom of one of the least crowded parts of Western Europe coupled with the enormous appeal of vibrant Inverness, leisure and business capital of the Highlands of Scotland as an outstanding destination base from which to enjoy and savor a veritable kaleidoscope of activities, great shopping, touring and sightseeing opportunities which surround and abound.

This hotel makes it perfect for short breaks and weekend breaks in Inverness (including these ‘inevitable’ highland shopping breaks), business travel to Inverness, touring Loch Ness, visiting the Grampians and their great castle and whisky trails, and Cairngorms National Park. The wonders of Skye and Lochalsh beckon, as well as the delights of Caithness and Sutherland, with world class golf at Royal Dornoch and Brora (and east of the city at Nairn too), and that special lure which enticed Madonna to have her wedding here in Scotland.

Rest assured that you'll receive a warm welcome. Come and stay with us and appreciate why the hotel is earning such a good reputation. You'll soon wonder why you've never stayed before.

    Lovely old fashioned hotel, with proper door keys to rooms. Liked that touch. Staff were very friendly, helpful and pleasant. Was verY convenient for train station and taxis which was ideal for me Cannot really comment on atmosphere and facilities as I was only there for one night arriving there around 8pm and leaving again by 8.30 am so can’t comment. Only thing missing was being unable to get a meal on arrival but due to current restrictions this was not the hotels fault.

    Great location for early/late trains north or south if you're travelling across /through the Highlands. I could leave a suitcase with them as I went further north for a day before travelling on. The room was okay, a single room with a wall heater, so cold when I arrived but it soon heated up. Staff were friendly and accommodating.

    Lovely stay as usual. One night stay as we were heading to Glasgow for flight next day. Room was on alley side so bit noisy and bathroom was Baltic but the room was warm and cosy. Staying again on our way back from hols in Jan. I love this hotel and tbh would not want to stay anywhere else if I can get in there.

    Not a great experience. Hotel staff were very rude and judgemental during my stay. I travelled here as a solo backpacker and was treated differently than other guests. Hotel is very expensive looking and the price reflects that. Walls were thin and you were able to hear every noise from the floor. Security was good so I felt safe. Hotel is besides the station. No chance to use social spaces unless you spend money. Would not recommend if you’re traveling solo. Go somewhere else more welcoming.

    The reception staff really put a damper on my trip here unfortunately. Both on arrival and departure. They seem really uninformed to the Covid guidelines and I'd really encourage disability awareness training.
