Hi, What is the pool temperature? Also is it possible to have a copy of the spa price list? Thanks!
Hi Gkullis, I'm sorry, TripAdvisor won't let me attach the link or document with the price list. If you search Google for Sleeping Beauty Salon Inverness. When you're on their website select Inverness Palace Hotel and you'll be able to see the pricelist from there. :) The pool temperature is 84 degrees. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask. Kindest regards, Aimee
