8 on the River

The Eight on the River restaurant offers a delicious combination of period features, stunning views and delicious cuisine. The new contemporary design fits gently with the traditional cornicing, high ceiling and large sash windows. This may compete with the picturesque view of the River Ness and Inverness Castle for your attention, but both may be forgotten once your meal is served.

Opening hours
Breakfast: 07:00 - 09:30
Dinner: 18:00 - 21:15
Weekend times may vary

Bar & Brasserie

With a relaxed atmosphere in comfortable surroundings, the only thing that could help you relax even more than our lounge is the superb views of the River Ness. You can enjoy excellent quality wines by the bottle and glass as well as Starbucks coffee. There is also a flat panel television in the lounge showing a full range of channels. Come back here to unwind after a day exploring the Highlands.

Lovely spot in Inverness

Excellent location on the river Ness, so easy to walk in to town. We had a lovely family room in the back of the hotel - beautiful decor and very clean. It was a bit hot, but a fan was provided. Beds ... more

We were very disappointed with our stay. The restaurant was like an up market cafeteria with not a smiling waitress in sight and little desire to provide a quality service. Reception helpful though. T... more
