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.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review, 937als. I am very sorry to hear that you were left unimpressed with your room. We do always try our best to offer a room move, if possible, for those who are unhappy with their allocated room. We also have mobile air conditioning units available from Reception upon request. I have passed your comments on to the management team who will look into them. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience. Kind Regards, Sarah
