Lady at Reception was friendly and offered several suggestions of local attractions to visit. The room was large and very clean and the bathroom was very big. Bed was comfortable, and combined with the quiet location allowed for a good sleep. Plenty of parking available onsite.

I have stopped here before and it was as lovely as before. Food was great. I had booked in to a small room which as I was on business on my own was fine. The room looked a little bit dated but to make a negative comment(s) would be wrong - in my opinion. I arrived @11-12, very early to check in but the lady at reception was VERY helpful and I was checked-in and got my room - perfect. I think the owners arrived at the hotel and when they entered the lunge they made a point (seemed that way) to make sure they said "hello". Nice touch. Overall a lovely hotel and staff. Would easily stay there again.

Completely trouble free visit. Used the bar, breakfast and dinner in the restaurant and at all times the staff were efficient and friendly.
Accommodation in the Garden Wing was immaculate, with large and very comfortable bed. The toilet room was spacious with a large and very efficient shower area. I will certainly use this hotel again, when in Inverness.

We made an emergency stop here after travelling back from The Hebrides and getting caught in Storm Callum.

The hotel was reasonably priced, looked gorgeous and had availability so we booked in online.

The main house looks beautiful and was warm and inviting after driving through the rain. The greeting was equally warm but we had to nip back outside to the ‘Garden Wing’ to get to our room.

I won’t waffle on about it but the wing, opened in 2006, wasn’t a pretty addition and we had problems with the door to get in (the couple who let us in said they had had the same problems). Our room was large and quite clean but (like the entrance and corridors) had the smell of a room that may have previously housed smokers and hadn’t had any fresh air through it in a long time. There was a lingering smell of air freshener though that didn’t really mask the fusty air. We could open a window though, so that helped.

We found the bed a bit uncomfortable, mainly because it felt lower at the head end than the feet end (but to be fair we were tired and disoriented so who knows if that was real or just us!).

The room was packed full of furniture so definitely had everything you might need but felt cluttered. And that random addition of a bench at the end of the bed caused me no end of pain as I walked into it several times during my stay!

The furniture was very 80s office block and has seen better days so is probably due an upgrade.

We booked for dinner in the main house’s conservatory and it was lovely. All of the staff we met were totally charming, warm, friendly, helpful and seemed genuinely interested in making our stay a good one.

Dinner was really delicious and the conservatory was warm and twinkly and had a lovely atmosphere, filled with parties and couples having a nice night out.

We checked out the next day without breakfast, eager to get on the road.

I would recommend the hotel for its lovely house and food but definitely suggest you ask for one of the rooms in the main house if you can get it. I don’t know for sure they won’t smell the same or that the furniture won’t be in need of updating but at least you would be in the pretty part of the hotel!

Highly rate the staff - thank you all so much.

Hi Sarah Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. I am sorry to read that the Garden Wing wasn't to your taste. I will investigate the smell of smoke and the problem you encountered with the door to the garden wing. Thank you for bringing these to my attention. I have checked the bed myself and it all seems fine. Our beds were all replaced in the last 12 months. I am sorry you did not find it comfortable. I am delighted that you received a warm welcome on arrival, during your stay and that you enjoyed your meal. Hopefully we will see you both again in the future. Kind regards Robert

There is quite a large car park, so I think it would be possible, but safest to contact them beforehand to check. Hope it works out!
