This hotel is in a wonderful location but is very shabby and understaffed. It seems to cater mostly for large American coach parties on overnight stops, consequently private guests are largely overlooked. For example the restaurant at dinner is reserved for them and private guests required to eat in the bar. The menu is largely unavailable and as the kitchen closes at 8.30pm nothing available after that. We booked a table for 8pm but were not warned about this. Also despite staying for 7 nights and twice requesting the room being serviced this failed to happen! We eventually put our overflowing bin outside the bedroom door, and had to make do with our soggy towels!! We enjoyed our stay in the beautiful Highlands but our holiday was spoiled by this overpriced and poor hotel.

Good location and walkable to a lot of things. Breakfast was very poor and we avoided on our second day. The rooms on third floor were stuffy with no air and windows wouldn’t open.

From the outside and lobby the hotel looked great. The room however not. We were given a room at the far back of the hotel, looking out at a roof top, with a bathroom light that did not function properly, TV with channel issues, lack of toilet paper and a layer of dust on the sides of the unit by the closet that looked like it had not been cleaned for a very long time. It took asking two times to get the light and a lack of toilet paper taken care of. The tub is VERY SLIPPERY and you are not given any idea of this until you are in the tub and then see the notice above the taps to use the bath mat, which is a towel type, in the bottom. Extra tea and coffee packets in the office area were a plus. Location to the main areas and the river walk are great.

Easy and inexpensive parking just down the street at the cathedral. Very pretty location along the river. Our room was clean for the most part but the bathroom floor had obviously not been swept for several days.

The location was really good by the river and a short walk into town . The hotel is very dated ,the room was cold .i asked for a heater but didn’t get one. Would have been a lovely river view if we could see through the filthy windows . Food very basic so we just ate there the one night . It’s a shame as it could be made into lovely place with a bit of TLC .

I loved the location right on the River Ness. The hotel itself not so great. Not very clean. The room was never serviced on our entire stay. No toilet paper in room or fresh towels. I had to ask the front desk every day off our stay for those type of items. For what I paid for a deluxe river view room it was not worth the money.
