Good accommodation in Inverness
My husband and I stayed for two nights at the Holiday Inn Express Inverness during May. The hotel is a short drive out of town in a new shopping/business precinct. Our room was a good size, very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was new and spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and helpful when we needed directions or assistance. The hotel itself is ideal for people with a car or their own transport as ample parking is available. Next door is the Snow Goose pub which has excellent meals. Close by within walking distance is a huge shopping centre, petrol/gas station and Burger King and Pizza Hut restaurants. There is also a movie cinema in the same complex - if these things are important to you.
More importantly, Culloden Battlefield and Cawdor Castle are a short drive away, as the hotel is located between Inverness and Culloden.
Overpriced as can stay at four star hotels cheaper
Hotel is overpriced for what you get, you can stay cheaper at all the local four star hotels - ie marriot, rocpool, thistle. A bit out of time and although comfortable the staff are quite rude and dont seem to care about the customer experience and just want to sell rooms to anyone. If in town again would stay elsewhere
The service and the friendlness of the staff was exactly what I was looking for. Superb location and clean rooms, this was a great experience. Maybe a bit more than i would usual pay but still very good.
Un lugar magnífico
El servicio y un personal tan agradable eran exactamente lo que andaba buscando. Ubicación genial y habitaciones limpias, fue una experiencia magnífica. Tal vez algo más caro de lo que suelo pagar pero muy bueno.
Great hotel, great stay
We initially booked for 3 nights. The hotel rooms are small but you have everything you need; they are also very clean. Many items in the continental breakfast, it opens very early and that helps you when you are going on long day trips. Although it is outside the city, it is close enough to walk to the centre; if you take a taxi, you will be there in 3 minutes.
We liked it and try to rebook, there was a small problem with the re-check that was promptly resolved by the staff, who were very attentive and helpful. Although the rooms were small, it was nice to hang up at night at the lobby; the hotel has a bar service and some snacks for late check-ins, you can also order food out. For people traveling with a budget, you can buy food in the Tesco supermarket nearby and use the hotel microwave, otherwise, you must visit the Snow Goose Inn, the pub next door. Beautiful athmosphere, great food and fine drinks.
Very clean, very friendly, very handy location - very good!
A great little gem of a hotel - expensive by express standards, we paid £85 for the room, some paid 90+
But it is so well placed just outside inverness (3 minutes or 15 minutes walk) and next to a fair little pub with a good menu and near a huge Tesco (one of 3 in the small city) where you can get a takeaway and nuke it in the hotel microwave.
10 miles away from Lock ness and near enough to the jewels og Brodie castle, Elgin and countless malt distillery's.
Good clean rooms
good efficient staff
and a pleasant stall all round, could have spent longer there!
Very pleasant hotel
We booked our rooms through priorityclub[--], the Holiday Inn frequent stay program. Upon arrival, the hotel could not find our reservation. Fortunately, I noticed that they had a sign-in sheet on the counter for Priority Club customers, and our name was on it. It turned out that for some reason the confirmation # in their system was different from the one we had on our printout from their online system (no one knows why). That resolved, we checked into two sunny, spotless, comfortable rooms overlooking the parking lot with a distant view of the blue Moray Firth through some trees. Standard rooms have two twin beds that cannot be pushed together to make one big bed (we asked). The hotel has rooms with big beds, but they were full and had no rooms of that type available. It was a warm night, and with the window open we had some noise (someone had left their poor dog in a car in the parking lot, and he barked for hours). The Snow Goose restaurant in the hotel's parking lot has an American feel to it, but the food and service are Scottish, and we enjoyed our meal. The HIX's breakfast room is large and the cold buffet includes cereal, breads, yogurt, and juice. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The hotel is quite far from the historic, interesting center of town; you have to drive there. All in all, it's a nice place to stay, but at $160 (80pd) for a twin bed room, it's rather expensive.
Great hotel loved the peace and quiteness
This is a great place to stay for a nice break-away.Very clean and friendly, although it is just bed and continental breakfast, it makes a pleasant change from the usual English breakfast you normally get when holidaying in Inverness. there are plenty choices to choose from.This is a pet friendly hotel, which is good for people who like to take their pet on holiday, we take our well behaved dog.
The hotel is quite central for eating out (I can reccomend the Snow Goose Inn ) straight across from The Holiday Express Inn
Friendliest hotel min Inverness
I had family come to visit last week and decided to put them up at the Express by Holiday Inn because we were packed out.
The hotel is situated near the retail park and a very busy road but my family said they had a sound sleep and how nice and clean the rooms where.
They had a good hearty breakfast in the morning and said they got great value for money.
Would recommend it to anyone, will definately use it again.
Loved the Holiday Inn
Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. A very pleasant experience. The staff from the manager down were extremely helpful and pleasant.
The rooms maintained to a very high standard considering the rates are so reasonable.
Overall opinion was very good and I would gladly go back there anytime.

Today started off well until we got to breakfast and there was something that neither Emily or I noticed. Upon asking we were told that it was Haggis. I thought **** it, when in Rome. So I had some with breakfast and I won't be lining up for or paying to eat it again. Every Scotsman that I speak to tell me that it is the ducks guts, or in this case the sheep's guts. It was another reason for Tina and the girls to ridicule and mock me. Anyway we then headed for a bit of a ...

Culloden was a great sight to see. Walking across the moors with the haunting sounds of the bagpipes wafting over the fields was very moving. The centre has been set up so well & the story of the Jacobites & Bonnie Prince Charlie explained clearly. I Loved It!!!
