We stayed here for 3 nights as part of the Great Rail Edinburgh, The Highlands & Islands rail tour holiday. The hotel is well positioned by the river with close proximity to the main shopping areas of Inverness. The bedroom was very acceptable and the bar and lounge areas were very comfortable.
There were 41 people on the holiday and we all had to dine at the same time with a set menu. The only complaint that I have is that on the last night’s dinner, I ordered the lamb. After approximately 5 minutes, the waiter advised the table that the lamb was finished so I ordered the plaice. Plaice is usually served flat on the plate with the skin side down. However, this plaice was served rolled up. When I got into the middle of the plaice, it appeared to be undercooked. I advised the waiter of this and asked that the chef look at it. I was told that the chef said that the texture of the plaice was due to it being cold!! I was offered a liquor on the house. Others at the table had ordered apple crumble for sweet. Again the waiter returned to advise that it also was finished. Not so good.
As we had to get up early the next morning to catch the train to Edinburgh, I asked reception to give us an early wake up call. Unfortunately that never happened and it was fortunate that my wife woke early, otherwise problems would have arisen.
Having made all these comments, we would still recommend this hotel. less
