We have just returned from a one night stay at the Rocpool Reserve and we cannot rate this hotel highly enough! We stayed in one of the extra decadent rooms which had a hot tub and it was amazing to use on a freezing winter day and night. The service at the hotel was impeccable and the staff were so...

Dear Guest, I thank you kindly for your lovely review on your recent stay at Rocpool Reserve Hotel.

We had a two night stay here as a Christmas present courtesy of daughter. We arrived on the 03rd January and had a very pleasant stay in one of the "Decadent" rooms. The room was excellent, it was on two floors with the bedroom on the upper level and a large bathroom on the lower level. The hotel itself is...

This was the first time we have visited this Restaurant and our only regret is not coming sooner. The meal was quite simply fantastic. The service was excellent and the food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. The location is also worthy of mention with nice views over the River and the west of Inverness.
