Prime location is a great advantage particularly as many of the day tours depart from right in front of the hotel. Friendly staff at the reception, restaurant and the bar ensured that if we come back we will definitely prefer this property. Very nice breakfast spread was offered. One drawback was that there was no view of the River Ness from the room. Also, there were some stairs in the corridors which inconvenienced us badly as we had to haul our luggage across them while checking in and checking out.
