On the move again. We had seen a lot of the area around Ullapool during our stay but had actually not spent any time in the town itself so this was our first port of call before hitting the road. It is really little more than a couple of streets which line the port but is very pretty. The harbour is full of fishing vessels and the area surrounded by mountains. We walked up and down the street, looked at the small number of shops, some preparing ...
Mark is starting to ripen as we begin day 2 in Aviemore without his luggage. If it doesn't show up today, he'll be off to the shops for some emergency rations like a three piece suit and Gortex jackets and perhaps some socks, underwear and toiletries. Just fill out this form and that form and keep your receipts and KlLM will be glad to cover your costs, if they're approved. I'd rather have my stuff. Maybe today. Paul put Patti and I ...

Every 10 minutes they're asking you if you want to enter a lottery or buy their electronic cigarettes or purchase some luggage (I'm on the plane going somewhere which means I have luggage already, thanks).

We rest our weary bones until tonight when we venture on to a Restaurant that was recommended to us by the owners of the b@b . The Restaurant Is packed , but we manage to find our way ( I was driving) They had live music but it was a bit crowded and noisy ...

The drive continued to be stunning as we made our way to Inverness. Once at Inverness we wandered around the city, walked along the River Ness and did a spot of shopping. However, most of the time was spent avoiding the rain!
Dinner that night was fantastic and we thought it rude if we didn't enjoy a few whiskeys after dinner!
The following day we went ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Heathmount Hotel Inverness
First impressions were a little disappointing. The 'Hotel' is really a bar with a few rooms above, historically called an 'Inn' I believe.
Another Great Stay
This is the second time we have stayed here in room 3 a four poster and it was great again. Very helpful staff and good room. We had dinner which was also very good. Maybe a little bit over priced but excellent quality. Breakfast was of a high stand too.
If I could improve one thing it would net curtains or blinds to avoid prying eyes or total darkness from the curtains!!
Was there for a weekend at the end of May with my partner.
A superb location near the centre of Inverness but far enough away to have peace and quiet also.
Well looked after by the staff there at all times. The rooms were of a high standard and finish. The breakfast was first class.
Never ate in the restaurant but im sure it wouldve been of the same standard. An excellent break away. Defo go there again
J'étais là pendant un week-end du mois de mai avec mon conjoint.
Il est magnifiquement situé près du centre d'Inverness, mais suffisamment loin pour avoir la paix et la tranquillité.
Le personnel s'est très occupé de nous tout au long de notre séjour. Les chambres était d'un excellent standing et très soignées. Le petit déjeuner était de toute première classe.
Je n'ai pas mangé dans leur restaurant mais je suis sûre qu'il doit être du même niveau. Une escapade vraiment très agréable. Nous reviendrons.
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during our honeymoon. The neighborhood was a little more residential than I would have liked, but still within walking distance of many sites. The entry/front desk is confusing and hard to find, but a pleasant check in once we figured out how. The room was decent sized but a little dark and with no view. The bathroom had nice toiletries but was very small and had no tub. I had a bad experience with the operator when I was trying to make an outside call, but the next morning at breakfast the owner was so nice and personable, and called ahead to make tour reservations for us, which made up for it. Overall an ok experience, though not sure I would pick it next time around...
Nous avons passé deux nuits dans cet hôtel pour notre lune de miel. Le voisinage était un peu plus résidentiel que ce que j'aurais souhaité mais on pouvait quand même aller voir de nombreuses attractions touristiques à pied. La réception est difficile à trouver mais les formalités d'arrivée furent un plaisir après ça. La chambre était d'une bonne taille mais un peu sombre et sans vue. La salle de bain avait de beaux accessoires de toilette mais elle était très petite et sans baignoire. J'ai eu des problèmes avec l'opérateur lorsque j'ai essayé de passer un coup de fil à l'extérieur mais j'ai tout oublié lorsque j'ai rencontré le propriétaire le lendemain matin au petit déjeuner : il était tellement gentil et prévenant et il nous a même réservé une excursion.
Great experience, pub is a big plus
This was our second stay at the Heathmount. Agree it is better described as inn. One of the best features is the pub. It is very popular with the locals, and we enjoyed getting to interact and visit with them. We're from Texas, and they are curious about our home which leads to lively conversation. We ate in the restaurant and found the food several levels above usual pub fare. The staff were friendly and very responsive to every request. The rooms were recently redecorated and surprisingly luxurious. Sure not what you expect in a small hotel or inn. We wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting the highlands.
Will come again
I have stayed at this hotel on four or five occassions now and would not hesitate to return. This is a small hotel where the owners and staff are all very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are a good size and each one is individually and tastefully decorated to a high standard. The restuarant menu and the quality of food and service are very good.
I make frequent visits to Inverness and have used a number of hotels in the city but will always endeavour to find a room at the Heathmount as my first choice.
Was really looking forward to our stay at the Heathmount, albeit for one night. However, what a terrible let-down it was. We arrived after a four hour journey, stood about for a while at a derelict 'reception'. Eventually, someone (friendly enough) arrived, only to tell us we didn't have a room, despite a confirmed reservation being made weeks earlier. This 'problem' is sorted, and we are shown to our room. Their internet site looks wonderful. Isn't it so strange how reality can be so different. The room was tiny, with a window overlooking a smelly vent (from the kitchen, presumably). The bathroom was equally small. No bath tub. OK, so a powerful shower? No chance. On checking out, were we asked if we enjoyed our stay, etc? Of course not.
