Unique boutique hotel Excellent downtown location. Lots to do all within walking distance and taxi's a moment away. Rooms comfortably sized, european. Staff is exceptional. Heads up: check in is at the bar when you walk in the hotel (cool).

Great location. Lovely staff. Good value. One negative is that there is very limited parking at the hotel and it needs to be booked in advance.Did not have dinner there but breakfast was good Would definitely stay again.

I stayed at Pentahotel Inverness for a couple of nights before and after a hiking trip. The room was small, but comfortable. It was clean and fairly quiet. Lovely modern decor. No frills, but no frills needed. It's just a block from the Inverness train station, so the location was super convenient. Lots of good restaurants in the neighborhood and only a short walk to the River Ness.

For us, friends arriving by bus from the airport (very easy and good way to save $ instead of taxi), great central location, close to the station, river, grocery store, and some of the best pubs and restaurants in Inverness. Beds were comfortable, and rooms quiet even during high season and with some large groups staying at the hotel. Laundry service was very good. Breakfast also very good, although did not vary over several days. Front desk staff friendly but are also multi-tasking as bartenders for the lounge, which could lead to possible delays. Some thoughtful design touches, and we loved the toiletries in the room.

We stayed one night here having booked months previously. On arrival at about 9 pm, as we had stated, we were told there was no double room available for us, but was it OK if two beds were put together in a twin bedded room. We agreed but it turned out the room was in fact the disabled suite (which we had not been told) with the bathroom being one large tiled area. This meant that if you had showered the floor around the loo was in an inch of water. There was also a strong smell of disinfectant throughout the building

Stayed here for 2 nights and asked for a quiet room,was put at back of hotel with fans bumming on and off all night ,staff talking outside at 3 in the morning ,banging etc,on second day asked for buffet breakfast and was charged 15 pounds each ,daylight robbery,for 160 pounds per night not worth the money ,free bottle of water in room ,with was half empty on second day and not replaced by housekeeping,tea and coffee in room ,but no biscuits ,lack of information in room regarding working tv and accessing movies,and no iron no information whats so ever the bathroom walls were all peeling under clear glass,only positive thing was it was clean

Reception staff were really friendly and helpful. Room was clean, bed comfy and good pillows, rooms are not large but big enough. Quiet hotel, no early morning cleaning staff disturbing you, shame same cannot be said for the seagulls at 5am. Would recommend this hotel.

My wife and I spent a few nights here while we were traveling though Scotland. We had friends that also booked here at the same time. We all loved the bar area and also felt that the breakfast options were outstanding. The rooms (once the temp dropped on day two) were perfectly comfortable and efficient. The only drawbacks were similar to many of the place we stayed throughout the UK - the rooms lacked air conditioning and the standard WiFi was pretty slow. Now, I know the A/C thing is "very American", but on days when it was >70 degrees and rainy, not having adequate airflow in our room made us more than a little uncomfortable. I would recommend adding either ceiling fans or simple standing oscillating fans be made available to keep the air moving. We had this in a few other properties that we stayed in later in our trip. The WiFi thing is a simply workaround on the user end - as long as you're willing to pay for "premium". I didn't find it important enough to worry about. Overall - there's no reason not to stay here. The value is good, the staff is great, the breakfast is great and the location is perfect (especially if you're coming in on the train).

This was an awful experience for my parents. They stayed here as it was central to the city and just a walk across the road from the bus station. Even the staff didnt look like they wanted to be there. Noisy rooms people banging doors. Breakfast was good though and my dad enjoyed the warm grapefruit juice

Polite inefectual service Combined with Warm premium overpriced bottled beers! Basic rooms not to the standard of budget hotels Our toiletries were empty or half used filthy ! TV with no instruction for use! Dirty underbed n in all corners
