Claimed there was free parking online, however, there is no free parking. They give you a bar voucher after you hand the a receipt to them for having to pay for parking.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry there seems to be an misunderstanding with regards to the car parking. We do state online that we do not have car parking at the hotel.

Good location for shopping and restaurants

The lady I had dealt with in reception prior to my stay was rude and unhelpful. I had an upgrade to my room once I arrived, this was fine but I wouldn't rush to stay there again.

Sleepless night

Unacceptable noise coming from either plumbing, fans etc. kept waking me up.

Nettes, uriges Hotel direkt am Fluss Ness und gegenüber der Burg von Inverness gelegen. Die Ausstattung ist einfach, die Fenster bei den kalten Temperaturen schlecht isoliert, aber es gibt Heizkörper und einen dicken Vorhang. Das britische Frühstücksbüffet ist anständig, frisches Obst fehlt allerdings. Das Personal ist zurückhaltend, aber hilfsbereit und höflich. Für den gezahlten Gesamtpreis von rund 120 € für 2 Nächte im DZ/F absolut empfehlenswert. Einzige Verbesserung: Es wäre nett gewesen, wenn die Heizkörper bereits kurz vor der im Voraus mitgeteilten Ankunftszeit angeschaltet worden wären, damit man nicht ein kaltes Zimmer beziehen muss.

Pire hôtel où j'ai été !

Un séjour catastrophique et stressant ! La chambre qu'ils nous attribué était pour le moins d'une saleté repoussante (fiantes d'oiseaux sur les fenêtres, tâches de café sur les meubles décatis, odeur de renfermé et poussière, salle de bain petite et obscure ainsi que fissures au plafond et peintures défraîchie). Nous avons également été réveillés au milieu de la nuit par une alerte incendie à cause d'un détecteur défectueux. Aucun membre du staff ne nous a orienté pendant l'évacuation. En guise d'excuses pour nous avoir fait évacuer dans le froid et la panique, nous n'avons reçu qu'une banale lettre type. À tout cela s'ajoute un staff incompétent, peu réceptif et de mauvaise foie !

Please accept our apologise at the onset for falling below your expectations. We strive hard to maintain and keep up our Hotel but we do fall short sometimes in our efforts. I would also like to thank you for getting to light our shortcomings, this enables us to ensure that these mistakes are rectified and we offer a better service to our esteemed Guests. Indeed on the night of your stay the fire alarm was activated and whilst I understand that this may be inconvenient, this was a necessary action for the safety of all our guests. As a gesture of goodwill however I can offer you a 1 night stay Free of Charge in one of our newly refurbished double rooms on your next visit to Inverness.

Hyvä sijainti Nessin varrella

Pros: Kotoisa
Location: Lähellä keskustaa, vastapäätä kiinnostavaa linnoitusta. Nessin varrella. josta mukava lähteä kävelylle.
Toinen käyntimme hotellissa vastasi entistä hyvää kokemusta. Mukavasti vanhahtava hotelli, jossa hyvä henkilökunta-
