Decided to dine here on our last night, and the four of us were treated to a superb meal that was absolutely faultless. Congratulations to Darren and his merry band... More

This is a great place. Staff are friendly & helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean. And the food in the restaurant is delicious! This is our first night of a 7 day driving trip on the North Coast 500 route. It was a long 2 flights from Boston to Inverness. We picked the North Kessock Hotel because it just... More

We both had the salmon which was absolutely mouth watering. The whole menu was very tempting and the decision wasn't easy. But we are in Scotland and I really wanted to repeat my... More

This hotel was exactly what I wanted! I scoured the Internet for a hotel that was not in the city of Inverness but among the Loch. When we arrived, I literally jumped out of the car. In the summer, it stays light very late in Inverness. The is a bed and breakfast feel and like many hotels in the UK... More

Visited for a friends birthday and was amazed by the quality of food served, wonderfully presented dishes too. Great view and restaurant/hotel setting. Plenty of variety in the menu, but perhaps not for fussy eaters. Prices are higher than competitors and service was slower than anticipated but I would probably return given the right occasion.
