2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Liked: Amenities
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Dirty bedding, dirty shower and used and unflushed toilet. Manager very apologetic and offered drinks- no offer to clean room. Reassured me that room was cleaned that morning after another family had checked out however advertised on Expedia they allow rooms to be empty for 24 hours between guests! Poor service and levels of hygiene. The false advertising on Expedia led me to leave the negative review.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Staff were really friendly. They rang to confirm my check in and accommodated late check in after 10pm. Room was clean and comfortable. They have a small very friendly dog that followed me into my room but I like dogs so was fine with that. I was on the second floor so quite a lot of steps to climb.

Great hotel, one of the best in Inverness
Amazing hotel with a 2 bed family room, this really helped with our sons privacy and also our own, Spotlessly clean and a really impressive decor throughout. Only issue we had was the previous guests must have smashed the LCD tv in our room, such a shame. We would certainly stay again and planning to go in Jan - potentially if Covid-19 restrictions allow, thanks
