Best Western Inverness Palace Hotel & Spa

8 Ness Walk, Inverness IV3 5NG, UK – 01463 223243

Stayed here for 3 nights ,had a couple of issues, glad to say the manager Sarah is very helpful and sorted everything out for me , it made the stay much more enjoyable. Stayed in the castle room which has great views of the river and castle. Edit 2018 Came back to Inverness again for another visit , stayed here again. Rang direct and booked with Sarah. Have to say the staff are very good , room has great views overlooking the river ,opposite the castle. Rooms have been painted since last visit and downstairs has had a full makeover to a high standard. Meal was very nice from the bar and good value. Will definitely come again if I’m the area.

Staying here my last night in Highlands with an early flight tomorrow. Very happy for the simple fitness center with weights , kettle bells, and resistance machine. The restaurant was fair, not great ... I had a chicken Caesar salad that came surprisingly with anchovies ... i paid for it with my card at dinner and they tried charging me the next day as well. This was quickly resolved. My room on the second floor was very nice with a view of Inverness Castle and the Ness River Walk. The building is beautiful with high relief ceilings. I wonder what the history was or if it was always a hotel. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Best Western Plus Inverness Lochardil House Hotel

Stratherrick Rd, Inverness IV2 4LF, UK – 01463 235995

I am treated like a queen here! The food is scrumptious. The presentation and taste is comparable to an over-priced restaurant, but the cost is reasonable. The hotel has an ambiance of old Scotland. The staff go above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. This is a quiet area. It is close to attractions. There is plenty of room to park (free). The rooms are modern and clean.

Gave us a free room upgrade to a huge room! Tasty big breakfast, reasonably priced tasty dinner with big portions. Very friendly and helpful staff. Hotel is in a quiet suburban location so it is very peaceful.

Travelodge Inverness Fairways

Castle Heather, Fairways Business Park, Slackbuie Ave, Inverness IV2 6AA, UK – 0871 984 6285

Accommodation did the job adequately, overnight stopover. Beds very comfortable after a 13hr drive. Room was clean and just like every other Travelodge that we have stayed at. Don't expect the Hilton when paying Travelodge prices.

Average travel Inn. Do not book breakfast. Next door ASDA is a better option. About 2 miles from decent restaurants.

Clachnaharry Inn

17-19 High St, Clachnaharry, Inverness IV3 8RB, UK – 01463 239806

Both myself and husband just love this lovely friendly pub restaurant!! Food good.. service good.. prices are very reasonable... not forgetting the cleaness of the place is very clean ... Which I think is very important...

Great pub grub for very reasonable prices. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. If your based it town it's well worth the walk.

Gellions Bar

14 Bridge St, Inverness IV1 1HD, UK – 01463 233648

One of the best traditional pubs in the city centre - can really feel the history. Friendly bar staff and regulars mix happily with visitors. Regular live Scottish music at weekends like Ted Christopher for some rousing Scottish songs and other pub favourites to sing along too. Has range of beers including Brewdog Punk IPA on keg. As you would expect decent malts and range of Scottish gins.

Technically we weren't at the bar, but in the air bnb that is right next to it. It definitely gets loud on a Saturday night and everyone in there sounded like they were having a great time. Great music coming through the wall!!

Dows Bar

Balloan Rd, Inverness IV2 4PS, UK – 01463 418121

Good food. Good pint. The conservatory was a comfortable eating area.

Steak and ale pie was superb. As was the Thai green curry. Excellent.

Travel Super Market search and compare prices for hotels all over the world. Could also be useful for you. I This said I was told by a hotelier that the way to get cheap rooms is to ring up the week before and ask for the weekend rate. You can usually get an absolute bargain as they will trying to book all the rooms that they have not sold! Could be worth a try!

Flash back to the 70s. You have to walk milesto get to your room. However, it is clean comfortable, quiet and the staff are welcoming. Breakfast gets a 5/5.

If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!

My husband and I had a great time at the rookery nook. Simon was very pleasant and easy to work with/talk to in booking overseas with us, as well as in person. The place was very clean, in good condition, and extremely cozy on a rainy Scotland evening by the fireplace. The place has nice easy access to bus routes and main highways, with a grocery store/gas station close by. We hope to return someday soon.
