Have stayed here twice now and great quality hotel with fantastic food. We had a package DBB deal with a free cream tea thrown in which was a lovely surprise. Always my first choice in Inverness. Only gripe was the free WiFi is rubbish in the bedroom we were in but reception is great in the lounge area so no really a deal breaker for us. It meant we had a wee dram while we caught up on Facebook and Twitter before bed....!

I love this place. Gorgeous room (lucked out with the honeymoon suite as it was the last room available the night I showed up). Very comfortable bed, large tub to soak in, higher end toiletries, fluffy towels, beautiful view, staff who couldn't do enough to make the visit comfortable and happy. Excellent food, really excellent. Eggs perfectly poached each morning. Best mushroom risotto ever. It's not cheap, but still quite reasonable I felt. I was just making my way round Britain, finding accommodations as I went and tried four hotels in town that were booked full or wanted too much given their look (same rate, but overlooking garbage bins and alleyway). I decided to head out of town to see what I could find and I came across Drumossie by chance; stayed three nights in heaven, for about the same as I was quoted in town. Town is only a 5 min drive away if you want to spend time there or to find cheaper food. I love this place and if I ever get back to Scotland, I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Get the honeymoon suite if you can; even if you are a single traveller like me.

Stayed overnight prior to business meeting the following day. Room was lovely, large and clean, staff were very pleasant and helpful.

We chose to dine out since we thought the dinner menu was rather pricey and limited in choice for one of our party. Discovered room service menu on our return and thought it a shame that the hotel did not offer this in another part of the hotel as an affordable option.

Breakfast was delicious as was lunch.

I've just had a 4 night stay at the New Drumossie Hotel. On arrival the reception was nice, staff friendly and check in swift and smooth. We were in the four poster room which on first impressions seemed lovely. However, on closer inspection the bathrobes were starchy and hard, the "fridge" in the room didn't work, extractor fan didn't work in the bathroom and the water pressure from the shower was very, very weak - a definite struggle trying to wash long hair!! The hotel doesn't have a bar, so to speak, but it has a lounge area (which was very comfortable) where you can order drinks. Be warned though, it is expensive! A glass of Pinot and a pint of beer were £13! We declined to eat in the restaurant while we were there - mainly due to the extortionate cost! The room was comfortable and the bed was cosy (we definitely slept well!) We were staying on a B & B basis. The breakfast was nice but expensive if you had to pay for it - £15.50 and the chef definitely needed training on how to poach the perfect egg!! Some reviewers have commented that it was out in the sticks. It wasn't in Inverness city centre but if you have car it was only a 5-10 minute drive. This suited us better as we didn't want to be in a town and wanted to be somewhere more rural. The hotel also doesn't have any "extras" eg pool, spa treatments etc. All in all the hotel was expensive - especially for the lack of facilities -and needed lots of TLC for a 4 star hotel, however, we still had a very comfortable stay and the hotel was a great base for exploring the Highlands!

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the New Drummossie Hotel in Inverness. The room was superb – very spacious and exceedingly well equipped with an ensuite bathroom equally luxurious. Members of staff were formal but friendly enough, whilst the meals were of a high standard. Thanks must go to Richard who waited at table with a friendly, quiet and superbly efficient manner. Hotels are very lucky to employ such excellent people.

Reception is quite bland and austere despite the flowers. However, really everything after that is very nice. A traditional old-style hotel with great service - staff are efficient and unobtrusive. Restaurant was very comfortable, quiet and the food was good. Lounge, the same. Rooms were large, great bed and bedding, very comfortable. Clean, modern bathroom, again good size, with bath and large shower. We were very pleasantly surprised by the 4 star rating, sometimes 4 star can be a disappointment - not this hotel. Beautiful surroundings, 2 minutes from Culloden and only a few minutes from Inverness City Centre. Couldn't believe how easy it was to find, signposted from the A9 travelling North, you don't even have to go in to Inverness to get to it. We stayed for 2 nights and were attending a wedding for 250 people and everything went without a hitch. We resolve to come back, just to do a bit of sightseeing and enjoying a break in this lovely hotel.
