The Royal Highland Hotel is the oldest hotel in the centre of the Highland capital, Inverness. In 2000, the property was carefully restored, retaining its unique character associated with the bygone age. As soon as you enter the hotel you will appreciate this. In the foyer the grand staircase, the inspiration for the Titanic's staircase, leads to the 84 spacious refurbished bedrooms - all with very high ceilings. The decor is rich with traditional furniture and deep colours. The rooms all have soft furnishings and antique style furniture. The excellent bathrooms are generally medium to large in size. For over 151 years, the hotel has been looking after travellers from all over the world. Perhaps its popularity stems from the fact the hotel is a grand place to stay. Large bedrooms, large lounge areas, quiet meeting rooms, good food, prime location and friendly staff all play their part. All local amenities close to hand, but within a 5 minute drive you are out into the dramatic Highlands. Lochness is only 7 miles from the hotel.

This is our third stay in 6 years at this lovely old hotel, and its welcome was as warm as both previous times. We were admittedly disappointed that having requested a specific room at the time of booking, which we were told we could have, on arrival we were placed in a room on

I have stayed at the Highland on several occasions. It's an old building with creaking floors and, in places, needs updating but the rooms are comfortable.
The young lady on reception was friendly and helpful. While we waited, she dealt with a couple of "difficult" guests efficie
