Peace and quiet near Inverness.

The BEST WESTERN PLUS Lochardil House Hotel is minutes away from Inverness, but worlds away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.

Our Victorian mansion house hotel is set in its own grounds, giving you the freedom to enjoy your break in a quiet residential area of Inverness, just 1.5 miles from the city centre.

There'll be no traffic noise to speak of, but plenty of talking points as far as local points of interest are concerned. The BEST WESTERN PLUS Lochardil House Hotel is ideally located for those who want to see the sights of Scotland, and of course anyone wanting to go Nessie-spotting around the famous Loch Ness!

Maintaining high brand standards and excellence in quality is second nature to the BEST WESTERN Inverness Lochardil House Hotel in Inverness. We have proven that going that extra mile during our annual BEST WESTERN quality assurance assessments really does pay off. Our hard work and dedication to cleanliness and quality of both guest rooms and public areas has gained us the BEST WESTERN International Quality Award. A global recognition of excellence given to only a few selected hotels throughout the world, this award shows that we take pride in offering high levels of excellence in quality and brand standards our guests expect.
