Staying in the Inverness area for one night so relied on reviews to help us find somewhere to stay.

Food in the restaurant was fabulous, as was...

Over many years three friends and myself have been meeting for lunch at the North Kessock Hotel, always adding a small indulgent bowl of their chips which we rate as second to none. On our most recent visit each one of us, unusually, chose a scallop chowder which we agreed was so delicious that we decided it was time to...

The restaurant was exactly as one would wish. Unpretentious environment, service attentive and friendly, a menu reflecting the locality, a good mix of locals and incomers at other tables; good value for money.

After reading the good reviews about this hotel, I was so disappointed when we were shown into our " Double Sea View Room"( room 1) to say it was compact would be the polite thing to say but it was a tiny cramped room, spent two days tripping over our bags, and I'm sure it was meant as a single...

The food is excellent, the desserts are to die for and the service is impeccable. Very friendly atmosphere, always welcoming and will do their best to fit you in even when they are busy! With stunning views out over the firth it is a great place to kick back and unwind after a hectic day.
