This hotel is situated approximately 5.6 km from Inverness town centre, 8 km from Inverness Airport and only 2 km from historic Culloden Battlefield.

It is located in a quiet area on the outskirts of Inverness and easy to find. Plenty of parking at the hotel. The suite at the top has plenty of room with lots of natural daylight and views looking towards Inverness. The bed was large and comfy and the room was definitely warm enough. Hubby loved that there was a decent sized tv 😂 The staff were super friendly and couldn't do enough at breakfast time.

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!

    I stayed there as part of my 3-day Isle of Skye tour, and I couldn't have asked for a better place for stops. Inverness is a quaint, small city with lots to offer. I was traveling with my partner and he had the same impression. We found the best place for pizza and whiskeys (Black Isle Bar & Rooms) with rooftop 'secret garden', and large selection of beers on tap! Strolling along the River Ness during sunsets is a charming experience, and we'd definitely love to visit this place again :)

    It's a lovely town with plenty to see. It's also ideally placed for visiting the surrounding sights and attractions. We visited Leakey's Bookshop - brilliant place. Also visit, Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle, |Culloden is a must see as well. Also well worth a visit is the Dores Inn where you can enjoy a delicious fish tea. Do have a stroll along the beach there where you get magnificent views up the loch.

    Due to shortage in staff our room wasn't cleaned daily. We had booked a dog friendly stay and was told our dog could be everywhere with us, however not at breakfast as we were asked to leave, very disappointing as we have stayed in a holiday express in Doncaster and could take our dog everywhere

    Loved everything about Inverness!

    Loved everything about Inverness! Being just north of Loch Ness was fun and the day trip to the Isle of Skye and Portree was beautiful. Weather cooperated too. We enjoyed our entire trip. London, Cambridge, Isle of Man, Dublin, Kilkenny, Galway, Edinburgh and finished off our trip in Inverness and wouldn't have had it any other way! We selected the perfect time of year for this trip, May 16 - June 7. It was a little cold & rainy but overall the temperatures were perfect. We prefer 60 degree to low 70 degree temperatures. And zero smidges to contend with!

    We ate at three restaurants in Inverness, and can recommend all of them, Zizzi, Bella Italia and Coyote Burger. We didn't spend much time in Inverness itself sightseeing, but can recommend some of the places we visit which is only within 30 minutes' drive of Inverness: Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle, Urquhart castle and Loch Ness. Culloden Battlefield made a huge impression. We also visited Landmark Forest Adventure Park, which was okey to have been there, but will probably not visit again if we go back to Inverness.

    The room was clean and cozy, especially the bathroom was pretty. Breakfast was really good as well. The location was perfect if you visit Scotland by car. 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. Def. would book again :) The B&B host recommended to go to Chanonry Point to see Dolphins and we really saw some there, it was amazing!

    The house was of a really lovely standard, very clean and a great location just outside Inverness. Great surprise of a small park outside for the kids to play on. The house had all the amenities and equipment you would need for a really comfortable stay, couldn’t really fault it at all. The comms with the owner was always great too. Would definitely use again when we decide to return to Scotland!
