4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

As a family we have been to the Chieftain quite a few times, It's always clean, we get a very warm welcome and feel at home every time we go.

Because we live in Inverness we didnt need a room but i wouldn't hesitate to book one if i did need one.

The whole place is due to be renovated soon under the new management and I wish them all the very best for the future .


The food is great value for money and all made fresh to order none of the prepaired microwave stuff you get in some places, and you get a nice cold pint best in town.

We, tonight had the:-

soup and crusty roll £2.75
Tempura Tiger prawns with salad for £4.95
Nachos for £4.25

Ness Wok with chicken £8.50
Ness Wok with Beef £8.50
You really have to tast that sauce it's lovely!
Chicken caesar salad £7.95
Scampi £9.00

Service with a smile and good portions.

Room Tip: As i said i didn't need a room but i wouldn't hesitate to book one if i needed one.

Stayed at this hotel over Easter.

The new family management team who took over in Feb 2012, are working hard to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.

A warm welcome - Extremely clean room - Good food - Pleasant lounge and public bar - Friendly helpful staff - Free WiFi - Ample car parking - Conveniently located just off the A9 and only a short walk to the shopping centre.

All of the above made this our ideal choice.

Stayed a few nights early february and it appears positive changes are underway.The hotel is under new management and the family who have taken over seemed to be working almost 24 hour days addressing the issues raised in other reviews.The laundry service ,which was apparently previously done by hotel staff on site,is now contracted out to a professional laundry firm,re-assuringly,and a new team of chefs are in place.I never had dinner in the hotel so cant comment on the food,although the breakfasts were lovely.
The decor is definitely a little dated,though and I hope some investment is made as this is a nice,welcoming,centrally located hotel.With a busy public bar and lounge,this family run hotel definitely has a much better atmosphere than staying at one of the rather sterile chains.
Not luxury,try Rocpool if thats what you are after( at luxury prices !),but clean,friendly and apparently,on the up !!

We stayed a weekend as a break away from kids. When we arrived thought we booked double was given a twin!
Was expecting a much better room, the decor was very dated, the window looked onto a roof and metal walkway!
There was no remote for tv.
The worst thing was the beds! They were the most uncomfortable I have ever slept in! You could feel the springs and were covered in vinyl!!
We went down for a drink in the evening and it was good, staff very friendly!
