We stayed up late last night packing so we would be ready to go bright and early this morning.....Caught a train for the first time in my life!! While we were waiting at the rail station trying to figure out where we were supposed to be, we decided to get a bite to eat....breakfast to keep us running all day!

Tim managed to use the T Bar and so he stayed with Mark and they boarded for longer. I went home and drank a number of hot chocolates.
That night we made an epic meal of pie, pasta and roast vegetables followed by cheesecake. Then we watched more TV and drank various beverages.

Loch Ness is beautiful, even in the cold rain. We didn't see any monsters but Johnny did a good impression. It took us about three hours to make it down the length of the lake because we made frequent stops to either look at the views or wait out the rain or let people pass.

The Scottish people were so lovely throughout the trip, and being called lass and saying I instead of yes made them awesome in my books.
Our day trips consisted of a road trip out to the west coast of the highlands to a town called Mallaig and another heading north to Loch Ness and and Inverness.

TravelPod Member ReviewsKingsmills Hotel/Kingsclub & Spa Inverness
I loved this hotel!! Just wished it were closer to Town Center as we walked everywhere we went. It would have been sweet if they had told us sooner that internet time was cumulative rather than clock hours.....I would have paid for it sooner!

Historical Traveler Reviews Kingsmills Hotel/Kingsclub & Spa Inverness
What a wonderful stay. We were in Room #20, which is spacious and has french doors which open onto a terrace facing the garden courtyard. We hardly cared that it was raining in Inverness. The staff was attentive and discreet. The restaurant (the Conservatory) was fully staffed and attentive, even though we were on the shoulder season and the hotel seemed to be less than half full. Breakfast was full and included and could be had between 7 and 10:30, which gives plenty of planning flexibility. Inverness offers something for everyone: you can tour the Firth by boat or plane, explore the historic city or just shop and eat. We had some of the best Indian food we've ever had at the Rajah. The castle is now a working courthouse but the public can still go in and look around. The Mariott is a ten-minute walk (downhill) to town, and a good walk back to work off dinner. Bring the umbrellas to Inverness, as you would to anywhere in Scotland. It's really a nice city and the Marriott was a great hotel to be at. Not cheap, but it does deliver.
Inverness is the gateway to Scootish Highlands and Marriott Inverness makes it all the more pleasurable. Boasting of having hosted Mel Gibson (during shooting of Braveheart) and Price Charles, the hotel is a converted residence / castle which became a Marriott hotel couple of years back. Regal splendour is visible within the hotel. Service is superb. Hotel has nice gardens, gym facilities, sauna , mini golf to relax your senses after tiring day. Hotel is located in quiet residential areas. There is a very nice playground bang in front of hotel - which served as a relaxing adjunct with 4 year old with us. Rooms were large, clean and well stocked. Restaurant service was also very courteous.
We really enjoyed this hotel. We are Marriott points members and were able to stay for free from the points we have gathered. We had one of the larger king rooms which was very spacious and nicely decorated. In general this hotel is decorated less like the cookie cutter chain hotel and more like a Scottish manor. The only problem we encountered was a fire alarm that went off one morning after breakfast and we had to leave the building even though there was no real problem. It pushed us out into the day a bit faster than we would have liked and we didn't have enough time to get all of our stuff together for leaving. But it wasn't a big deal. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast buffet was great. We really enjoyed our three nights here and would return again.
My partner and I stayed here for two nights in November and had an excellent experience. The facilities were first class, with appealing pool and sauna, and the service was faultless. We booked with rewards points and they even upgraded us to a suite without us asking for it! We didn't eat in the main restaurant and chose the cafe instead. The food here was of higher quality than we anticipated and was very reasonable at around £30 for 2 mains and a bottle of wine.
Above our expectations
After a long drive from Birmingham to Inverness the Marriott was everything I was hoping for and more. We were able to check in early, which enabled us to have a sleep, before walking round the town. The staff were friendly and very helpful, our room delightful. A family room with king-sized bed made it even more luxurious. Fresh, clean, comfortable. The food (breakfast & diner) was delicious and a good selections of wines to boot. It certainly impressed my husband, which was the idea, unfortunately the following establishment we were booked into paled into insignificance!
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Marriott in November 2004 and we loved it. I travel a lot for work and this was one of the best 3/4 star experiences I've had.
I do not understand why big chain hotels have the gaul to charge so much and deliver so little.
The Friendliest of Hotels
Our family have stayed at the Inverness Marriott for six New Year packages, wedding anniversaries & weekend breaks over the last 8 years.
It is styled on a large country house in beautiful surroundings. We have stayed in both the executive & standard rooms, both are spacious & luxurious. All the staff treat everyone as special & no request is too much trouble. Whether you dress casually or formal you feel comfortable in the atmosphere created by the staff. The food is of an excellent standard from breakfast through to dinner. The pool & gym area have all the facilities you would expect of a high class hotel. I have no reservations in recommending this hotel to anyone, it is a unique experience.
This hotel was unique. We stayed in a 2 bedroom flat which was detached from the main building. From the outside, its purpose built and rather unattractive. On the inside, it was spacious, well decorated and suprisingly like a full size home! The breakfast was good, parking ample although a little away from the town centre. I would recommend this hotel.
Great Hotel - Excellent Service!
My wife and I stayed at the Inverness Marriott for 2 nights in late August '03. The hotel is just a short walk from downtown and is an old mansion. The rooms are very nice, and every one is different. Ours had an amazing walk in shower as well as a soaking tub. All marble bathroom. The staff is SUPER friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. There is a great pool/sauna/hot tub and a 3 hole par-3 course for free! I would higly recommend families or couples to stay at this hotel.
