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.

... maybe our room here takes the prize for genteel, old fashioned shabbiness. It has mustard yellow flocked wallpaper, it is TINY with a double bed just fitting in, it has three doors and tartan carpet. But, there is a big TV, it is clean and we can make a cup of tea. Perfect. Not much to report about Inverness, as we are only here to break the journey south to Pitlochry tomorrow. Off to find ...
Awake, breakfast & our last day in Scotland. As it was Sunday a church service was in order at St Mary's in Inverness adjacent to the River Ness- a prime position. Weather was windy but would you believe there was sunny spells which was like that for most of the day. Picking up cousin Helen we were off to Woollen mills that had a wonderful display of weaving of kilts & anything Scottish. After a good look around & some shopping was time for lunch in their ...
... oldern day train that runs on coal – and makes steam. It made a cool chuffing noise that sounded like drums beating in the distance.
Today we went to another castle called Eilean Donan. I like the ruined castle better as you could explore wherever you liked. This one had lots of "don’t touch" and "do not enter" signs but I still thought the weapons and the old paintings were cool.
We had our 1st ...
... they resemble cows with long hair. Our students think they are adorable. We made our way back to the castle to prepare for our tour. A rather large group of seniors had preceded us and we had to wait for them to emerge before we could head in. While we waited, we chatted with one of the castle managers about one of our students that has a serious fear of taxidermy. Should she see a stuffed animal of any sort, she is prone to panic attacks. ...
... for free during their long lives. Their was a newspaper article honouring Deisel with a very nice photo when she died. Soft hearted Scots. Our passage through the highlands to Kyle of Lochalsh was very pastoral with green fields numerous sheep black faced and apparently content. Weather was widely varied sun one minute and a deluge the next. The bridge to Skye is quite elegant and the rugged landscape ...
