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.

... Edinburgh before the drive to Inverness. We ended up at Edinburgh castle and it was great to look at the history of the Scots Guards and how big a part the pipers played in their regiments. I saw a great painting which was titled the Thin Red Line, Google it I loved it. There were a few Victoria Crosses on display and I am amazed that each museum seems to have some on display, whereas ours are only displayed at the Australian War Memorial. We then loaded into the car ...
The 7:14 train to Stirling then change to the Inverness train arriving Aviemore about 10AM. Bus up to the mountain then funicular railway to the top. We had only been there about 15 mins when it snowed. What a treat since we didn't expect it and it gave ...
... peaceful hamlets set along the shores of numerous bays and deep sided gorges. With the ever changing scenery came the different transformations of light and shade. One moment bright sunshine reflecting off autumn colours, the next crystal clear waters of glorious loches and cloud shrouded mountains. These areas needed far more time to explore than we had and this area is definitely on the return ...
We spent an amazing 3 days exploring the main Island of the Orkney's-which remarkably has well preserved ruins from all eras of history-from Stone Age, Iron Age(where the Vikings have left their graffiti on Stone age ruins!), the Middle Ages right up to the 2nd world war! The West mainland of the Orkney's has the highest concentration of spectacular stone age monuments found anywhere in Britain. I had no idea that the Orkney's had so much history ...
... a quick lunch of soup and roll. Very nice and extremely suitable on a day like today. Thank heavens to the good old VLBA jacket and my new beanie. We then had to hotfoot it to Culloden to catch it before closing time. This was a must see for Narelle, the most important thing on her agenda for Scotland. Culloden is a battlefield were the Clans were striped of all their rights back in 1746 when ...
