Our breakfast was quite tasty, the setting elegant, and the service was attentive. Especially enjoyed the fresh fruit, strong coffee, and relaxed setting.

Great breakfast as part of our stay. Wish we'd been there longer so that we could have explored dinner in their lovely restaurant.

To get a table its a good idea to make reservations in advance. The food is outstanding and the service matches the food. EXCELLENT. Well worth the wait and enjoyed every minute of it.

Family chose this restaurant for a lunch to celebrate my 60th birthday. There were 5 adults plus a 9 month old toddler. We were placed at a large round table at the window which was nice and bright with the wee one on a highchair. We found the service and the food to be excellent. The waiting staff knew when... More

Dined in the restaurant during our stay in Inverness. Formal to casual attire. The cuisine is creative, presented beautifully, and fabulous.

We dined here rather than stayed. Not to be confused with the similar named restaurant in town. This is just a short taxi ride out of the town centre. It was a brilliant menu. Well up to Roux Bros standards. Varied and imaginative. Lots of add on bits and pieces. Great tonic with the gin, great wine choice. Everything on... More

We were at Rockpool with a group of 12. The restaurant is very easy to locate right in the center of town on the river. The inside is modern yet warm and friendly. It's somewhat noisy due to the design and materials, but the noise just made the place seem more lively and fun to us. The menu is excellent... More

Beautifully presented dishes, clever combinations of ingredients and flavours. I really enjoyed all the dishes I tried (we dined there twice during our holiday, as we were staying in the hotel). Impeccable service too - I would not hesitate to recommend this for a special occasion.

This is one of those few restaurants which you must visit at least once. The food is outstandingly brilliant as you would expect from a Roux establishment. The floating cheese soufflé is to die for! Absolutely nothing negative to say about this restaurant after five visits.

Booked this hotel because it had a really good deal for DBB. The room was spotless, tastefully decorated in a modern style. We chose to have our breakfast in our room, there was a really good variety of choice and delivery was made at exactly the time we had requested. The real highlight of this hotel however is the restaurant.... More
