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.

Breakfast: 07:00 - 09:30
Dinner: 18:00 - 21:15

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.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your feedback, Ambu. It's great to hear that the team from reception desk was helpful. I'm sorry about the trouble with the sink, I will let maintenance know so that this can be investigated. Also, I'm very upset to hear about your experience in the restaurant during evening meal. This is disappointing because, we are always proud of our service and quality of food. I will definitely raise this with the Food and Beverage manager and Head Chef so that case can be looked into. I hope you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with exceptional service. Kind Regards, Angela
