Beautiful room overlooking the River Ness. Great little lobby bar serving a lovely selection of whiskies. Paid public parking down the street beside the Cathedral (hotel gives you a room credit equal to cost of parking so.....first drink is in them!)

For one of the floors the lift kind of stops between floors and then there are doors and stairs. Best to ask for an accessible room if stairs will be a problem.
