    The hotel is well maintained and car parking is private. Next to the station in central Inverness and near the bar; good for money.

    Perfectly situated close to railway station and shops. Staff so friendly and helpful, especially the ladies on reception. Breakfast was delicious with a great selection to choose from. As always a very enjoyable stay and I look forward to returning to this lovely hotel.

    The style of the hotel is "old". Classic Scottish. Breakfast was great. The location's awesome. You can't hear any noise from the railway station.

    Unfortunately, there was no AirCon. In front of the window (in the courtyard) there are pigeons.. much dirt and noise and the window can not remain open.

    Those who really want to stay overnight in Scotland cannot pass the hotel. Very centrally located and well equipped. Rich breakfast

    No closets in the rooms.

    Very good

    The staff was friendly. The location of the hotel is super. The coffee was great.

    The room was a bit musty and could not be ventilated.

    Very good

    Super central and located in the middle of Inverness, the hotel serves its purpose as a starting point for a city tour and day trips. The staff at the reception is nice and the lobby bar is lavishly filled. There are also good eating places nearby.

    Much of the "royal charm" one expects looking at the photos is more appearance than reality. Above all, the large breakfast room is furnished somewhat unkindly. Smaller B&B's often have more charm and often a better price-performance ratio.

    Perfect

    A very nicely furnished room. I felt comfortable right away. A comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and good heating, which you can regulate yourself. Everything is spotlessly clean, from the carpet to the TV remote control. My expectations were exceeded by far, because it is a somewhat older house. The staff was professional and warm at the same time. Room cleaning every day top. The hotel is located in the middle of the city, yet it is quiet and easy to find, e.g. bus 11 directly from the airport. Shopping facilities are just around the corner. To the River Ness it is a 5 minute walk (very nice).

    Slippery shower tray. Almost made a somersault the first day.

    Breakfast was excellent. Big room. The hotel has an antique style.

    Restaurant service is not very hospitable.

    Bar too expensive and barmen did not know how to pull a pint. Shower didn't work. Had to have a bath. This was not too much of a problem as I was never in a hurry.

    Staff initially dismissive, bordering on rude because we arrived looking scruffy. Wonderful building ruined by partitions, lack of decoration and stink of damp

    Everything inside is old, uncomfortable. My blanket was dirty.
