“A king of a hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Great hotel. very clean and comfortable with excellent friendly and attentive staff. Food was delicious but tea a little too expensive. Easy to find and good leisure facilities. looking to go back sooner than later.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the garden

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to write a review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Inverness and really enjoyed the hotel. Our Exec chef does buy the majority of our food from local suppliers which is is fantastic that the income goes back in to the local community, the quality is very high and as a result it does cost a little more.

I appreciate your feedback and look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future.

Kind Regards

Craig Ewan

We got a good deal for the Kingsmills hotel which is always a welcome start! It's a nice comfortable hotel in really good condition. Bedroom was large enough and the WiFi was indispensable as 3G connection was ropey. Comfortable bar and dining area and the food was pretty good. Breakfast was excellent, think I ended up looking like a haggis. I wouldn't describe it (as per their website) as "just a short walk from Inverness city centre", it's a decent walk which is probably why I've described it as 4/5. There are couple of standard food pubs nearby that are okay for an evening out, food and footy on the tele, that sort of thing. It also has a funky little par 3 golf course with a few holes, that was fun!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review, I always appreciate feedback. I will share with our management team your comments. I was glad you liked the large room and the great bar and lounge. Regarding walking to the city, it is a 10 minute walk to the top of the Eastgate centre (the main shopping mall) or 15 mins right down to the river Ness.

I would like to welcome you back at some point in the future.

Kind Regards

The room was huge as was the bed and nice big bathroom!
The food was great and never had so much choice for breakfast, but the main thing for me was the staff everyone of them was very helpful and always had a smile on there faces and could not do enough to help us in any way they could. If ever we go back to inverness I know which hotel we will be staying at!

We stayed for 1 night in the Kingsmills Hotel whilst passing through Inverness, staying in a standard room on the ground floor.
The room was huge, with a massive super-kingsize bed, seperate dressing area between the main door and bedroom, and patio doors leading out to the lovely gardens - very impressive, at first I thought we'd accidently been put in a suite!

We ordered room service for dinner which was delivered quickly, and was delicious - finished off with the lovely shortbread and cake left in the room on arrival. All the staff we encountered were very helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome.

It was a short but sweet visit, but we'll definitely be back (amd next time I think we might treat ourselves to a stay at the Kingsclub and Spa - we had a quick peek around and it looks amazing!).

Great hotel with very friendly staff who were pleased to help at any time. Nothing seemed a bother and hotel is very clean and well run. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice.
