Traveled to many places in ten years and stayed here as a student. Promptly left after one month. Noise levels by drinking and partying students are beyond belief. Drug use quite open. A number left at the desk to call security never once answered at 11pm. States security is here at night, they were here for one week out of 5. Would just end up calling police by 2,3,4am on several occasions. I'd rather stay in a 1 dollar a night travel hostel in Bangkok than that place. Management don't care once you've paid. Complaints ignored. Truly worst place I've stayed.
Excellent accommodation. Very clean room and quiet at night. Good wifi. Close to the Fort William travel centre and the rest of the town centre. Shared kitchen available with tea and coffee facilities.
Where to start with room 3 first floor? This was serious substandard accommodation. A bed that was not fit for two. A sheet that didn't fit the bed and kept slipping off. 2 Pillows in total. A window blind that was broken with a detached chain that meant it couldn't be opened or closed. No soap/shampoo. No glass for dentures. 2 hand towels and no bath towel. No bins in either bedroom or bathroom. Walls filthy. Old quilt in wardrobe that didnt look washed and certainly wasn't ironed. Hair on pillow. Over 70 quid for this? On our way out this morning there were dirty sheets and towels strewn on the ground outside our door. No one in reception to complain and ask for a refund. Dear God. Wished we had stayed anywhere else..
Stayed here for 8 weeks due to work commitments in Inverness. The location for me was perfect and walking distance to supermarket, Bannatynes Gym and other amenities. CCTV everywhere so did feel quite safe. The grounds are lovely for jogging or walking. The room it’s self was fair perfect for me I had a studio room which has a microwave, fridge, cooker etc. My downside was it wasn’t the cleanest there was hairs everywhere and it wasn’t just one week. And one week I was convinced the bedding wasn’t changed it didn’t look fresh and a dirty dish towel was left lying on the bed when I checked in. I didn’t make a huge issue but when I return next year I will look around but this place is an ideal location so really hope management do something about the cleanliness before I consider staying next year for work. …
This is cheap accommodation. It isn't always a case of 'you get what you pay for'. In Aberdeen, you can get a Travelodge room for £30, which is £8 less than we paid for our room at Cityheart Campus, but a whole lot cleaner, nicer, more comfortable and closer to town. Accommodation in Inverness is grossly overpriced, however, so we ended up here. It will cost about £12 to get a taxi into town, this place isn't near anything. The campus is new and actually looks quite pretty on the outside, but that is possibly the only positive thing that I can say about it. Driving there, we got to the reception first, which was manned by the least helpful receptionist ever. When I asked where the accommodation blocks were, he pointed to a picture on the wall and said 'there'! When we did eventually find the reception for the accommodation though, the person on the desk was helpful and we were able to park right outside our room. The entrance to the building was littered with fag ends. Classy. The room itself was very basic, with no bin in it. I've stayed in nicer hostels! There was a shared kitchen at the end of the corridor, but I would not have wanted to use that for anything. The buckets were overflowing and the stench from them was overwhelming. I'm glad there was a fire door on this kitchen, as the place was swarming with flies. There are no kettles in the rooms, so we just survived on bottled water and biscuits. There are no coat hangers in the rooms either. This accommodation really is p*** poor. Thankfully we were only staying there for one night.…
Well, booked because it was inexpensive and I was only staying one night. As other reviews have said...it’s hot, you have to open the windows. A bit tricky to find in the dark. Room was clean... kitchen area was not. No bin in my room which was a bit annoying. Shower unit is very small indeed. But my only real ‘complaint ‘ is NO SOAP!. I arrived late at night. No soap to wash my hands let alone a little shampoo for the morning. I mean... really?? This may be inexpensive but it’s still £50 a night. Would some liquid soap break the budget??
Firstly for what I paid this was decent value for money. Room clean, bed OK but 3/4 size, adequate bathroom, plenty storage, kitchen and sitting area well equipped, kitchen equipment clean. Grounds are lovely and great for an evening stroll However, place is like a sauna with no way of controlling heat. Bathroom pod particularily hot, have a shower and just sweat again. Automatic light and fan sensor so annoying, takes ages to go off. A real pain in middle of night. Noisy, creaking floorboards directly above, doors slamming, railway line nearby, traffic noise audible, partic as you have to open window to get some air in. Common area dirty floor, crumbs everywhere, not cleaned in 2 days. I am on a fixed allowance through work so at early summer rates I guess its worth ignoring the negatives for some extra spending money, not so sure it's worth the higher rates I see quoted in August. Am was on the first of two stays and due back following week, can't cancel as on a non refundable deal, so e mailed my concerns, requested and was given a top floor room so at least no creaking floorboards above. Stayed on my own in a 6 room flat so splendid isolation and no noise issues. However heat issue remained and made worse by being unable to change shower temperature from roasting hot. A very helpful chap named Martin helped sort this and a tv issue. So in summary, its cheap budget, hostel like accommodation and does what it says on the tin, however being built for a Scottish Highland winter it is just not suitable for even a poor summer, and if you are a couple then the 3/4 sized bed could be unbearable. Windows that only open slightly are no help whatsoever. So if its single occupancy, you like it warm, you are on a budget, you don't mind a bit of noise, then it's fine. If you are a couple looking for a restful night or two I respectfully suggest it might be better finding an extra 20 quid for something better.…
We stayed one night. Pitty the students who have to suffer a whole term time. The accommodation is new but very cheaply done. The whole project smacks of cost cutting and maximising revenue. Staying here must be a souless experience for the students. For tourists, find something in town, even if it means paying more.
I stayed here for a few days on a work trip and was really happy with the value and comfort of this place. Yes, it's student halls, but 21st century halls. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and well laid out. Plenty of storage space, a comfortable bed and a clean ensuite shower room with good, clean bed and bath linen. No tv, but there's good WiFi and there's a communal kitchen with a tv lounge. The kitchen is well appointed with 2 large fridges, free tea and coffee and all the cooking equipment you'd need. Ideal for Raigmore Hospital and the UHI School of health and a short taxi ride from Inverness station. All in all, simple, great value
Just as expected. Simple room. Small bed. Good shower and joined kitchen. Easy to find, cheap and clean. We liked it. If you are slightly large than I wouldn’t recommend sleeping in the bed with two people. The bed is really narrow.
