When you're in the Highlands, you'd imagine staying in local B&Bs or quaint country retreat hotels. Well, PentaHotel is neither. Situated in the heart of Inverness' city centre close too all cafes, restaurants & bars (ideal for business people & only approximately 20mins drive from Inverness Airport), it is a hotel which offers a unique experience in many ways. One such example, is the fact that as you walk in, you're greeted by a funky, chic bar area which doubles up as the reception area and dining room. It is perfect use of space, designed well, is inviting, cosy and definitely enticing (their drink prices are very reasonable!).
The staff are wonderful - a warm welcome, friendly, helpful and exactly what you'd expect from Highland hospitality.
The only tiny issue I had with my stay, was the fact that I found the rooms to be tiny and quite bare. They have all the basics, but no more. I didn't find the room to be particularly inviting, warm or cosy. I think they need to add some finer finishing touches to their rooms (as they did downstairs) & it would be quite perfect :) The rooms are clean however, with the beds comfortable.
Breakfast is served from 0430am - and the spread put on is splendid! There was everything from selections of fruit platters, cheeses, cold meats, breads, salmon, pastries, bagels, muffins, cereals, yoghurts and hot breakfasts (including omelettes, full-english & more on request) - it is faultless! The breakfast is area is comfortable and again, superbly designed/decorated.
I can highly recommend the hotel and will definitely be staying again!
