Four of us had a meal at Chez Roux restaurant and we all thought it was one of the best meals we have had in Inverness (and we eaten over the years at most of the top restaurants in this city). Helpings are not large which, at our age, really suits us and allows you to have 3 courses with...

The staff here are wonderful but alas this hotel is vastly overpriced for what it is. The bathroom has an over bath shower which is in desperate need of having the head descaled and the poor extractor fan is very noisy. The bedside lamps are tatty and need dusting! We ate dinner in the restaurant service is woefully slow and...

An impromptu visit from a friend led to him wanting to go for dinner on a Sunday evening, so as he's a keen foodie there was only one real option in inverness: Chez Roux at rocpool reserve! The amuse-bouches were delightful, and set the scene for what was to follow. We both opted for the veal sweetbreads for starter, and...

Probably one off the nicest hotel rooms we've stayed in for size and appointments. The hotel is a lovely building perched high above Inverness and overlooking the Ness. Very nice meals and fantastic service from the welcome and check in till departure. Would have loved to stay longer.

We visited Rocpool for two nights prior to Christmas and have to say found it very relaxing, Although it is within walking distance to the city, we could not believe how quiet it was. An ideal hotel for a relaxing, romantic break. The staff could not be more helpful and they were all very pleasant and couldn't do enough for...

This weekend away was bought as a treat for my partner, and was significantly more than I would normally consider reasonable for only a couple of days away - however, it was more than worth it! From the red carpet in the Reception area to the well-stocked bar, we couldn't fault this hotel. The staff cannot do enough for you,...

What a lovely hotel - the staff were very friendly and welcoming from the moment we walked in. We had a great tasting menu in the evening on NYE at the Chez Roux restaurant and the breakfasts were great too (not buffet but plenty of toast if required!), including a full Scottish option. Our room was very well furnished with...
