pork croquette almost toxic with levels of salt. 32 day matured rib eye steak tender, but devoid of taste and flavour.chips bland and soggy, bearnaise sauce overly salty and more like a paste in consistency. staff pleasant and helpful, food dire. with hindsight i should have returned starter. a memorable meal for the wrong reason.

This place is well located just up the street from the castle and a short walk from the bridge across to the main part of town. The rooms are well appointed with modern conveniences. Food is quite good and staff is very attentive. If I found myself in Inverness in the future I would look no further.

Loved this ultra modern chic hotel with superbly attentive staff! The rooms are huge with every amenity including an electronic fireplace. The restaurant and bar are excellent with large selection of spirits, inventive cuisine and charming decor. Our favorite hotel of a lovely week in Scotland. HIghly recommended.
