We are less than a mile from the city centre but a million miles away from the usual - Ladies and gentlemen - boys and girls - welcome to the pentahotel Inverness - Just the tonic for the weary traveller or the visitor who is rearing to go - Perfectly positioned to jump-start your visit the capital of the Scottish Highlands - In fact pentahotel is much like Inverness itself relaxed - confident in its unique personality and right in the middle of it all.

broken bed but did the job

An excelent location in the city centre, very clean and modern hotel, only complaint was the middle strainer on the underside of the double bed was broken which we didnt notice till leaving, hence we didnt sleep that well(must addmit i never reported it) but apart from that a good hotel with very nice staff in an excellant location.

Fantastic Location

Located 1 block from either the train station or bus station. We were there for the Loch Ness Marathon and staff was very attentive. It was my wife's birthday and they gave her a card and wished her good luck in the race.

Good hotel for a flying visit

Overall is a good hotel for it's location, close to the train station. My daughter and I came up for a wedding. We didn't get back until 1am in the morning. There was a little confusion about the second glass sliding front door to enter the hotel, as I did not realize we need the hotel card to open it. There was a staff came to open it for us, he was rightly point out the door need to be open by the hotel card key. But I was not too happy about how direct he was and not too friendly (without a smile). I have to say that all the other staffs are great and make you feel welcome. Hotel itself is clean and tidy. I will come back again, next time I will remember to use the hotel key or the sliding door.

A low cost hotel in a top location

This was our first time in Inverness and we found the Ramada Encore to be perfectly located. It is very close to both the bus and rail stations, as well as being only a short walk away from the shops and River Ness. We enjoyed a cruise on Loch Ness to Urquhart Castle, which is highly recommended, and took a bus to the Benromach Malt Whisky Distillery in Forres (the smallest distillery in Speyside), where a tour cost just £3.50 and included not only a free 'dram' of their 10-year old malt but a voucher to use in their shop. Also, as we were very lucky to have dry, warm weather, we strolled along the banks of the River Ness to the pretty Ness Islands, which are about a half-hour walk from Inverness Centre. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable, with friendly staff and an inviting bar with a pleasant outdoor courtyard seating area. I can't comment on the food, as we didn't try it. My only criticism of the hotel is that there was no wardrobe in the room (only a rail sticking out of the wall with coat hangers on) or any drawers in which to store clothing, meaning we had to leave our clothing folded up on the limited shelf space. The "power" shower was also rather feeble in strength, but this wasn't that important as it maintained its temperature well. Overall, we really enjoyed our visit and would love to go back to Inverness. We would also be happy to stay in the same hotel again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Look for Lanna Thai, Thai Restaurant, for delicious food - only a short walk from the Ramada Encore. Also the pub, Ceol Mor, about a 15-min walk away on the other side of the River Ness, has excellent pub meals and entertainment in the form of live bands in the evening at weekends.

good value, exceptional service

I was on the 5th floor with a fantastic view of Inverness. The hotel was so close to the train and bus stations as well as to shopping and places to eat. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my stay thouroughly. The only thing that would have been better is if there was free wifi in the rooms as well. Compared to the terrible place I stayed in London this 3 star hotel felt like a 5 star. I will be returning to this hotel.

minimalistic but fairly cheap

the hotel was not very knowledgeable about the area we were staying in. we paid for internet in the room and it was terrible and didn't work for at least 15 minutes out of the hour we paid for. the room itself was a good size, but the bathroom was tiny and the shower even smaller. the shower leaked all over the bathroom due to poor design of the glass door and the pressure from the shower head was very weak. we stayed at 3 different places during our stay in Inverness and this was the one we liked the least. if we return we will not stay here again.

Professional, centally located

The hotel is clean and convenient to everything in Inverness. You can walk to restaurants, bars, shopping, downtown, the train and bus station, and rental car agencies. Staff were helpful and friendly. Ask to stay away from the street due to noise, including the 7 a.m. street cleaner.
