Best Western Inverness Palace Hotel & Spa

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

Nice hotel, with amazing staff. Smallish room but very comfortable bed.. Very nice breakfast selection too.. Good leisure facilities. Parking can be a bit tricky, but leisure staff more than happy to help.

We booked a River View suite for four days, and to begin with everything was, to simply put it, magical. Despite our lost luggage, delayed flights, we had the amazing Castle Room, overlooking the Inverness Castle and the River Ness. On our second night, my amazing boyfriend proposed right on the banks of the river, despite being in clothes worn for three days while we awaited our luggage on our first trip as a couple. Most staff have been absolutely wonderful, one gentleman took the time to wash our clothes overnight after hearing of our troubles as we celebrated our engagement at the bar (the lovely red haired lady at reception is super amazing as well, but the brunette with the Slavic type accent should be avoided if possible, not knowledgable for recommendations nor could she give me a straight answer on if my luggage had arrived, NOR could she be attentive enough to realize I had stood right in front of her for three minutes before noticing me). On the third night, just before turning in early, WATER started leaking through the ceiling of our room, through a water stain we had noted in the ceiling the first night (it being an older building, we thought nothing of it). We were then shuffled into a broom closet of a room in the back of the hotel and given a refund for one night (we spent a total of over $2000 Canadian for four nights). This sort of displacement on our engagement trip that already was a mess became my worst nightmare and frankly, I just want to go home to Canada. Now instead of celebrating one of the happiest days of my life by sipping champagne watching the sun set over River Ness, I am holed up in a muggy, hot broom closet too small to have my luggage open.

Best Western Plus Inverness Lochardil House Hotel

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

Family-run with very welcoming and attentive staff. Owner greeted us on arrival. Had responded to my booking needs personally. Room warm and spacious with v comfortable beds. Super clean and pleasant. Meals (breakfast and dinner) have been very acceptable standard and waiting staff polite, charming and helpful. Not much dinner choice for a vegetarian but to be fair to the chef, I haven't asked what further alternatives might be available. Pricing of dinner reasonable, though B&B rate on the high side. Beautiful house, nice atmosphere. Only negative has been some intrusive early morning noise from adjacent bedroom - a minor issue which has not detracted from our enjoyment. Very happy to recommend.

Super taste 3 course meal. Top service and great quality food. Would recommend and will definitely be back.

Glen Mhor Hotel & Apartments

7-17, Ness Bank, Inverness IV2 4SG, UK – 01463 234308

Nice and modern hotel. Windows could do with a clean very dirty. Skirting board on one side of the bed visible dust. Staff very friendly and helpful. In a great location close to Inverness town I would stay here again.

I booked a Riverside room and had a pleasant stay. I think the view and the bathroom we're my favorite part. Check in was nice and easy. Great place to stay whilst in Inverness as it's close to the city center.

Pubs, Gastro Pubs and Bars

Blackfriars Highland Pub

93-95 Academy St, Inverness IV1 1LU, UK – 01463 233881

This is one of my favourite pubs in Inverness. Great selection of beers, I think the decor of the pub is of a traditional sense which I like. You don't get all the young idiots going there so it's a great place to go for a nice pint 🍻 and a live band

Been coming here for 10 years now, best wee pub I've been too, amazing Real Ales and amazing owners

Dows Bar

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

Very helpful and good communication skills

Great food cooked to perfection. Would kill for their oatcake recipe.

Clachnaharry Inn

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

Huge plate of succulent roast gammon, veg and new and roast potatoes. Added some gravy, butter for the tatties and a freshly baked Yorkie. Excellent value @ only £9.50. My only concern might be in still having room for a sweet :) Well worth the lazy Sunday visit

Lovely atmosphere with friendly staff and huge portions of amazing food. Would definitely recommend a visit.

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!

Bannerman Bed and Breakfast

47 Glenurquhart Rd, Inverness IV3 5NZ, UK – 01463 259199

This is a clean and cozy B&B. Nice location with less than 10 min walk to the castle and the old part of the city. Alison is a very nice and welcoming lady. Her breakfasts are delicious and she literally pampers you during your stay. We spent two nights there without any problem. Don't forget to say hi to Hector, her calm dog, or at least visit him :-) his color is eye catching.

Glasdair Bed and Breakfast

42 Island Bank Rd, Inverness IV2 4QT, UK – 01463 235997

Lovely host. Nice quirky interior with Turkish influence. Alley to parking at the back is very narrow! I suggest closing your wing mirrors first before driving in!

Max and Angela are very warm and welcoming to their lovely home. They make a big breakfast and make sure your needs are met. Shower pressure and temperature was a little weak, and the driveway to the parking is very narrow, so go slowly and tuck in your mirrors.

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!

Sandra Harold 24 June to 1st July 2017 Our stay at Seascape was perfect , warm comfortable and thoughtfully equipped, The views from the window were amazing, a walk up the hill revealed some astonishing sunsets don,t miss out on these . Roe deer were visitors to the front door and seals in the bay every night, plenty of wildlife to keep you occupied and lovely walks along the coast, Chas was there to greet us but never intrusive but a mine of information if you needed him a perfect gentleman. We don,t often visit the same place twice but will certainly return to Seascape for an escape from the mad world Many thanks for the use of your lovely cottage

We stayed at Shirley and Allan's lodge near Invergarry and had a fantastic time. Due to a road accident ahead of us along the way we were delayed in arriving by 5hrs but this didn't phase Shirley one bit! A lovely warm welcome to a lovely warm lodge. One of the best holidays we've ever had!
