Nestled on the leafy banks of the River Ness, lies Ness Walk. An idyllic 5-star retreat hotel in Inverness, just 10 minutes from Loch Ness. Surrounded by a dramatic canopy of impressive trees, our grand building allows you to experience a secluded atmosphere in the heart of the vibrant city centre.

The front of house staff here are outstanding, a warm and professional welcome makes you relaxed from the moment you arrive and throughout your stay a huge thank you to Stephen and the team. The room was equally lovely and had everything needed really appreciated the large bottles of water and the fridge. We ate at the restaurant and found the food a mixture of outstanding and ordinary service was fine. Breakfast was excellent despite a wee wait. We will definitely be back off season

Stayed at this wonderful hotel for 2 nights just after the New Year. From arrival when we were greeted buy a very friendly concierge who after collecting our luggage from the car immediately brought us champagne. He escorted us to our room explaining all the hotels facilities on the way. We had upgraded our room to a Cedar King which was absolutely gorgeous. Huge bathroom with a separate toilet. Patio doors out to our own terrace which in better weather would have been fabulous. We dined in the hotel’s restaurant on both nights. Food was if the highest quality as was breakfast on both days but I must say the highlight of the whole stay was the staff. Everyone so friendly and looked after us so well. Made our stay extra special. Thank you. We are already planning our return visit.

Gorgeous hotel in Inverness, about a 15 minute walk along the riverbank from the city centre. The staff were wonderfully welcoming, and very attentive, with a welcome drink upon arrival whilst we waited for our room to be ready. Room was beautiful, wonderfully cleaned (with a sticker on the door to indicate that it had been done and so no one else could enter, which was a good C9 touch I hope all hotels keep in place!). Opted for a Double Room with Garden View with a river/garden view. Very large room, huge marble bathroom, so comfy. Dinner: One of the best meals, truly brilliant kitchen team, every course was considered, and they must have some sold pastry chef's on their team because usually I am disappointed by the dessert course, but they really nailed it. I could have eaten here again and again (but sadly was only staying one night!). Breakfast: Good choice, lovely food, they had milk alternatives which is important, and overall an enjoyable start to the day/

Myself and my friend attended for a fabulous Afternoon Tea at Ness Walk recently prior to having our little babies. From the wonderfully warm welcome, to the attentive table service, we were made to feel so welcome. The food was lovely, special attention given to even the smallest of details. We were given delicious ‘mocktails’ to celebrate and looked after so well. We particularly enjoyed looking out onto a crisp winter garden and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a special treat.

We had a great experience at Ness Walk. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean, and the staff were welcoming and attentive. The hotel is located roughly a 10 minute walk from the city centre, with plenty of pubs and restaurants a short distance away, so location is very good. The only time we ate in the hotel was for breakfast. The breakfast options aren’t as extensive as other hotels we have visited but it was of high quality. Would recommend this hotel when staying in Inverness.
