pentahotel Inverness

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A usual haunt for work stays, and the recent refurbished rooms makes a lovely touch, the rooms were clean and welcoming, however the showers still face the usual problems of constant change in pressure and sudden heat changes. Have never faced a problem with staff before but this time had problems with the tv and was offered little help, and the worst was during breakfast around 5am the way the receptionist spoke to one of my colleagues was rude, and quite frankly all of us were left disgusted.

This hotel was a very nice one. If anything can be said it's only that our movie crashed a few times and that the shower heat isn't always consistent. Apart from that it's everything you're looking for.

Decided an overnight stay in Inverness was in order so we could go to a movie a have a meal. We have stayed as Pentahotel Inverness several times and managed to get a good mid week deal. Staff on arrival were extremely pleasant. Our rooms was clean and quiet as we requested. Only issue we had was hairdryer was not securely fixed to the wall and only blew out cool air . One of the coffee cups on the coffee tray was cracked so the liquid ran out of the cup. There was also a faulty switch next to the table. There were reported to check out staff when we left the following morning. A big plus this that you don't need to check out till 12 noon .Lovely to have the option. Love bar area down stairs.

In Inverness to take in Hogmanay and visit relatives. Basic but good basic, could have done with a little more drawer space and desk away from the tv but excellent stay overall. Side cabinet for bed on one side and a stool on the other - multifunction stool though

When we arrived as we booked through secret escapes initially they couldn’t find us , but service from there was quite slow to get served, we have paid for breakfast and in the first morning they tried to charge again , rooms were nice enough and atmosphere and location were good but overall I would give a 3/5 at a push .

Went to see the Red Hot Chilli Pipers and stayed here for 1 night. Friendly greeting on arrival and room was a good size. Free water and tea and coffee making facilities. Only 1 small bottle between 2 but was given another one on request. Was meant to have robes and slippers but they had a job finding them. Ended up with just robes but guy said we would get refund on this (still waiting for this to be put back onto card tho so we will wait and see. Perfect hotel for concert at the Ironworks it's just 5 mins walk. Toiletries also supplied but the bag is for 2 people so bring extras cos it's not enough. Didn't eat here so cannot comment, had a drink before concert just under £6 for 1 vodka and coke. There is a bar just outside the Ironworks which was friendly and cheaper. Would stay again tho if going to concert again.

Stayed overnight when we went to concert at Iron Works to see Red Hot Chilli Pipers. Hotel was only about 500 yards from concert, and only 600 yards from Train Station. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great location in centre of Inverness Got good deal through

The hotel and room were excellent the staff were great on arrival location is central on the high street. Though the dinner service lacks in care as left sitting for 15-20 mins before a drink was even served then when the order was taken server then had to come back and ask again about how done the steak had to be then after 40 mins food started to arrive but this is when problems began with one of the mains not being put through the kitchen and sides as Well not being sent so when the missing main came out every one else had finished there food not what I thought would have been expected with only a quick sorry then disappeared. The food itself was fantastic in taste and quality my only complaint on the menu side of it is when ordering a £26 steak you would expect at least a side to go with it and not have to order a side with a main to make a meal. Other than that the hotel I would highly recommend.

Great Location Quiet Hotel, I didn't use the restaurant so cant comment on the food, but the staff at the reception were very nice very friendly, only thing I would say is it is overkill with air freshener at the front desk! very clean rooms only thing I would say is the shower was terrible it kept going hot and cold nightmare! but apart from that all was great!

The hotel is only a couple of minutes walk from the train station. Having come up on the Sleeper train, we arrived early in the morning but the hotel was most accommodating and sorted us out with a room very quickly. The room itself was very comfortable and the bathroom was clean and decently sized. I thought the hotel was excellent value for money and ideal for our holiday.
