We stayed at the Royal Highland from the 1st to 3rd March. It was a Great Deal Offer. This hotel is indeed in an ideal situation. My husband’s case didn’t arrive with us when we arrived at Inverness bus station. The receptionist who dealt with us was very helpful indeed, all the paperwork we needed was in the case. Eventually it turned up.
It is a nice hotel, the rooms are old traditional style but nice and very clean and the beds very comfortable. The bathrooms have been modernised, very nice and the showers are marvellous. We were above the function hall and just before 12 o’clock midnight a Ceilidh started up from a wedding reception in the hall below. OMG I have never heard anything like it. My husband went down and asked could we be moved, and indeed we were. The fire alarm went off while he was down speaking to the receptionist. The other room was also nice on the top floor with a queen sized bed, once again very clean and very comfortable. The following morning we went down for breakfast which was really very nice and piping hot, no complaints.
We were asked to move back to the room we first had as we were told by the receptionist that someone else had booked and requested that specific room for that night!!! We asked if there was going to be another wedding but were assured there wouldn’t be and all should be quiet.
We had a meal in the hotel’s restaurant on the Saturday evening and have to say that it was absolutely delicious. All the waiters were friendly, helpful and polite and the menu had a good variety to choose from.
At just before 1am on the Sunday morning, the fire alarm went off again. We, along with some other guests started to make our way down to exit the hotel, we didn’t quite make it, as one of the staff told us it was it was a false alarm and we could return to our rooms.
I did like this hotel, it was comfortable and the staff helpful when asked anything. If I were to come back to Inverness and to this hotel, I would request not to stay in any of the rooms 121 -130 which were above the function room or ask if there was going to be a wedding on during my stay, otherwise these rooms would be just fine.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Royal Highland Hotel is the oldest hotel in the centre of the Highland capital, Inverness. In 2000, the property was carefully restored, retaining its unique character associated with the bygone age. As soon as you enter the hotel you will appreciate this. In the foyer the grand staircase, the inspiration for the Titanic's staircase, leads to the 84 spacious refurbished bedrooms - all with very high ceilings. The decor is rich with traditional furniture and deep colours. The rooms all have soft furnishings and antique style furniture. The excellent bathrooms are generally medium to large in size. For over 151 years, the hotel has been looking after travellers from all over the world. Perhaps its popularity stems from the fact the hotel is a grand place to stay. Large bedrooms, large lounge areas, quiet meeting rooms, good food, prime location and friendly staff all play their part. All local amenities close to hand, but within a 5 minute drive you are out into the dramatic Highlands. Lochness is only 7 miles from the hotel. ... more less
