Nice and clean stay
Nice pub with new and clean rooms. Good location near sites in Inverness. Staff were very sweet and helpful. Breakfast was meh but cheap so that makes it fine. Room was pretty hot so maybe a bigger fan would help.

Terrible smell from the bathroom. Extremely nauseated

8/10 Very good

Beautiful rooms but the bedroom doors always got stuck on the carpet. Our neighbors are always slamming their doors because of this issue. Also you can hear everything in the hallway and even the music when it's live in the restaurant. Beds are comfortable, the showers are great and hotel is walkable from the bus stop and the train station.

Family trip to Scotland
A quick one night stay but it was amazing from start to finish. Checkin was amazing- room was spacious and exactly what we needed. Breakfast was great and the hotel was clean and comfy. Only downside was of stairs to our suite but it was Worth It! Will definitely be back
