On the most part my stay was pleasant. The room which I was in (on the first floor) looked over the rear of pizza express skips but the interior was bright and airy. The bathroom was of a good standard and the shower pressure and water temperature probably the best I have ever had in a hotel. I do have a few gripes though. I arrived at about 1:30pm and tried to check in early, whilst I appreciate that for whatever reason, I may not have been able to check in early, the way that my enquiry was dealt with by reception was less than satisfactory, and reading some other reviews other folk have had similar experiences. I couldn't connect to the wifi on my smartphone once I had finally checked in and after my previous experience there, I wasn't about to ask them for help. All that said the breakfast, rooms and housekeeping cleanliness were very acceptable.
- 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
