Loch Ness Country House Hotel, hotel in Inverness

The Loch Ness Country House Hotel offers excellent food and elegant rooms. It is a striking Georgian building in 6 acres of gardens, 3 km from Inverness city centre.

Reception and checking-in were fine. We booked a cottage which was just a 1 min drive away. First impressions were good as it's clean and quiet as it's separate from the main hotel. The only gripe was that we asked for a walk-in shower as one of my party had mobility issues. That was sorted but I didn't realise that the main bedroom was upstairs and the bathroom was downstairs which defeated the point of having a walk-in shower. The stairs were carpeted etc but a tad on the steep side. It caused us an issue but as it was only 1 night, it wasn't a disaster just a pain. On the positive side, it's a gorgeous cottage. We had dinner the hotel which was very nice albeit expensive for Inverness (roughly 100 a head) Would I stay again? yes but maybe the cottage next door if it has no stairs.

FAQs about hotels in Inverness








Gateway to the Highlands and Loch Ness

A jewel with historic buildings and charming streets, Inverness is surrounded by a typical Scottish Highland landscape. It is located 10 km from Loch Ness, along the mouth of the Ness River and the Moray Firth coast. It is regarded as the northernmost city in the United Kingdom, and capital of the Highlands.

Take a walk around the Old Town, visit St Andrew’s Cathedral, and make a stopover in the charming Victorian Market. The Old High St Stephen's Church is the oldest building in town, and has been a religious site since pre-Christian times.

The Inverness Castle overlooks the river and is nowadays the seat of the Sheriff Court. A hotel in Inverness city centre is ideal to enjoy the different cultural and recreational activities in town.

Watch the Atlantic salmon jumping out the river near the Ness Islands, and try to catch a glimpse of the famous monster of Loch Ness. The Cairngorms National Park is 40 km away, and Chanonry Point is the best spot to watch dolphins, just 24 km away.

Inverness hotels include a large offer of small, cosy guest houses, B&B’s, and rural cottages, allowing a closer contact with the nature. Don’t miss the Inverness accommodation deals on Booking.com!

    Inverness is a major city in Northern Scotland, and, as such has many and varied facilities. Plenty of opportunities to eat out, or just enjoy a drink.

    Lovely city with some really beautiful parts. Clearly a seedy side (there was a major assault not 50m from our door on one night!), which is true of any city, but Inverness is small enough for it to feel cheek by jowl with the nicer parts. Great range of places to eat and things to do. Easily walkable to everywhere.

    We were looking for somewhere to stop off on our way back from a holiday in the north of Scotland and I remembered going to this hotel for breakfast as a child, after getting off the London - Inverness sleeper train. It has a slightly faded grandeur, with the imposing double staircase and tartan carpets. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We enjoyed dinner in the Ash Restaurant and breakfast next morning was also very good. My parents' room actually looked out over one of the platforms of the railway station!

In the morning he provided us a fabulous breakfast according to our wishes. Our room had a private bath and everything was absolutely clean. The beds were very comfortable so that we wanted to stay longer in this cosy home. When we come back to Inverness we will definitely stay there again. Thank you so much Ellen and Russell!!!!!

    Our favorite place we stayed during our 10 day Scotland trip by far. Beautiful home, great location, room and bathroom were beautifully decorated and large!! Our host, Joan, couldn’t have been nicer. She messaged us restaurants ahead of time and suggested making a reservation because they get so crowded, which we did and it was perfect! Could easily walk there and all around the town. Really great breakfast too with fruit even!! Perfect stay!

    What didn't we like? This is probably the best place I've stayed in Scotland. The property is a bit outside of the city but it is gorgeous! The staff were fantastic and incredibly kind. The food was amazing as well. We recommend to get the pork belly for dinner if it is offered! One night, there was a leak that set off the fire alarm. One quick call and the staff were there to help. The problem was resolved within 30 minutes.

It''s like a 10 min walk into the center of Inverness, which was perfect. Had really good drinks in a bar called Scotch & Rye.
