We definitely won't be back.
Trying to get a confirmation after using their online booking system was like pulling teeth and included no reservation details (type of room, price, amenities included, etc.). Should have been a warning, I guess.
Our room was directly under the bar, in the basement. Not ideal for a Saturday night stay and when we complained about the noise/late hour on checking out, staff simply shrugged and mumbled "sorry".
I don't want to think about how clean things actually were/weren't. The carpeting was in dire need of cleaning or actual replacement, as were the throw pillows on the bed (I really don't want to think about the rest of the bedding).
Service was erratic and the included breakfast was mediocre. It would help if sufficient staff were available. Unbelievable considering the rate. Certainly didn't provide a good representation of Inverness or this facility.

... little difficult.
Mind you I suppose it goes with the somewhat spartan accommodation we are in. We are in a seperate building to the rest of the band. There was not enough rooms available in Alexander court so we are in Fraser Court - which is scheduled for demolition! IN fact telling you that is probably enough to work out that not a lot works in the rooms, and there are not a lot of facilities. the 'functional' kitchen consists of a cooker, 1 fry pan and 1 pot. ...
We decided we couldn't wear the same clothes any longer, and found a launderette in Aviemore, where we put everything through the washer and dryer. What a treat! While that was happening we found a wonderful cafe, where it turned out the chef was from Temuka! Her selection of home-made baking treats was a sight to behold, and it is no wonder they have been nominated in the 'Scotland's Best Baker' ...
... it became apparent that we were not going to get much sleep in the carpark! So after dinner we decided to take a chance and find somewhere else to kip down... there was another Britstop about 15mins down the road, so we hightailed it out of there and just on dark we found the carpark of the Speyside Centre - a fantastic spot well off the road in amongst a whole lot of trees. We had a much quieter night there, thank ...
... to cook dinner, which we hadn't had a chance to do for ages. We made a cheap and tasty version of spaghetti bolognase and polished off the better part of a litre bottle of vodka while we planned future parts of our trip.
It was decided that the best way for us to get a real taste of the Scottish Highlands would be to hire a car so, the following day, that's what we did. We packed a picnic lunch of avocado, cherry tomatoes and crackers ...
Weather: Morning fine with cloud, afternoon raining and bad Got up today and had had a really good sleep - slept most of the way through and felt better than the previous few days. Weather was looking alright so we were looking forward to our trip up the coast to Inverness. We didn't leave until a bit later so picked up the car and on the road by 11am. We headed up the coast along the Sea side quite ...
