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.

... omelette. Now readers this is where **** started to get weird. Out came the special flied lice smothered in roast pork and gravy, I **** you not ******* roast pork and gravy on the flied lice. Oh well this must be a Scottish take on the dish. Then the prawn omelette finally come out sitting on top of about 5 kilos of chips and peas. Now I love peas and chips, ahh **** it lets just eat up. After that we headed back to the Inn and having a quite night prior to the drive to Glasgow ...
... three hour drive to Inverness. The scenery was brilliant and it is interesting to see how many places around Newcastle and the Hunter Valley have the names of Scottish towns and cities. We are staying right on Loch Ness and are looking forward to a cruise on the Loch and a visit to Urquart Castle tomorrow. The food here was pretty good and Tina not being a scotch drinker, enjoyed the couple that she tried tonight. And yep they had Haggis on the menu, but I passed this ...
Grey but mild today in Inverness. We booked into an all day Loch Ness tour which started with a bus trip through the city, passed the Loch and to Corrimony Chambered Cairn which has about 12 standing stones around it. On our way we passed an interesting cemetery with a caged grave to stop the body snatchers. Naturally it is quite old. The then took us the the Loch Ness Exhibition Centre which has several rooms you walk ...
... this time, and just to finish the night off, called in at McDonalds for a McFlurry! Luvly jubbly!!
Back at Premier Inn now for an early night, as we have a 250 plus day tomorrow. Lovely sunset in Inverness - let's hope tomorrow's weather is kind for us yet again.
PS. I would just like to add that Paul and Ian have very kindly paid for my night out tonight in Inverness, as their thank you for me planning the trip. I appreciate that gesture very much - THANK YOU ...
... to catch up on. They met Greg for the first time, and of course they loved him (what's not to love? :) ).
Christopher and Hazell took us for a stretch of the old legs with a walk around Rogie Falls, where apparently the salmon swim upstream. Unfortunately they were obviously having a little break, as they didn't make an appearance while we were there, but that didn't retract from the absolutely beautiful scenery one iota.
