Recent guest reviews

Overall, the hotel is nice. The hotel is "edgy" I guess, with loudish music being played in the lobby/bar area all the time. Oddly, the reception desk and bar are one in the same (makes no sense). The staff were generally pleasant and competent. My room lacked a closet or a wardrobe. It had a small dresser, and (no kidding) some sort of an artistic piece of pipe that was supposed to act as a clothes hanger. Really, it barely served the purpose as my clothes that needed to be hung up were all crammed together on the too few hangers. The TV cable system did not work right. The room telephone did not work. The cleaning person did not replace the toilet paper one day, resulting in a nighttime visit to the bar/reception to ask for more. The treadmill in the gym broke on day 2 of my 4 day stay, and they never fixed it.

When we arrived a bit earlier we were forced to wait until check-in time 14:00, it was low season and there definitely were some free rooms, but hotel staff declined us to check-in. The lobby is a bar so it's odd to go to your room through the bar with some drunk people seating around. The rooms are very basic, thought equipped with some designer furniture. Corridors are almost completely dark, painted in black, it makes the walk on them a bit grim. The hotel itself located in deserted area, a bit far from city center, thought close to bus station, yet the strip club is next door to the hotel, lol. The hotel suitable for alco parties for teenagers, in other cases try to avoid it.

Nice little hotel, It's convenient to bus terminal and train Station and walking distance to some main attraction. Can't tell if AC is working if needs to open the window, it's noisy outside from birds chirping. Overall nice hotel for a reasonable price.

good beds good staff great location the wifi in the lobby works wonderfully

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.

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.

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.
