The hotel is undergoing regular maintenance and the rooms were spotlessly clean. The rooms vary in size with some being a little small but comfortable. The meals and staff are excellent and make sure you take advantage of their high tea meal option. Excellent value and so much food. The view from the restaurant over the ness river is probably...

My boyfriend and I stayed here this weekend for my birthday and I couldn't fault it. The staff were exceptional, so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Room was lovely and the food in the restaurant was delicious with great service. I'd definitely recommend this and will certainly stay there again when we're back in Inverness. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

We paid for a room with a view and it was a very large room. The view was good. The hotel was clean and the water was hot for a shower. We actually missed our train and had to check in late but they had staff on hand. In fact the staff here was so friendly and helpful! They booked...

Great location for a 2 night stay in April. The bar area is nicely decorated and has relaxed atmosphere- 5 out of 5 for this. Bedroom overlooking river - two comfy chairs to relax in and a large bed. Needs a bit of TLC as room is looking tired. Breakfast service very slow but food was good. Overall a nice...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Waterside Hotel in Inverness. It is directly across the street from the river. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Perfect Location if you are planning a day trip To Skye. Beautiful flowers. Nice restaurant. The hotel is a really nice walk along the river from the town.

I stayed here for Inverness half marathon. My room was lovely with a river view and very quiet. The bed was really comfortable. There is a lovely modern bar area for drinks. Breakfast was served at good times and was very tasty. I'd definitely recommend. Town centre only 10 mins away and parking is straightforward. Thank you

This is certainly not on my recommended hotels list, it started when my elderly mother fell quite heavily on the pot-holed walk from the car park to reception, badly cutting her face.
