“Warm hospitality!”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We drove into Inverness and our GPS took us to a neighborhood instead of this hotel. One of the employees' relatives found us and we followed them to the hotel! We stayed in the more modern section of this facility. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and the clean. The bathroom was very nice. The breakfast was tasty with many choices. I would recommend this hotel to any traveler that preferred a more quiet location as it is located out of the city center and not right next to the airport.

An old hotel with a very modern extension. The resturant, reception and a few of the rooms are in the old building, which has a cosy comfortable feal about it. Most of the rooms are in a separate modern, three story building. Very nicely built. The four lower floor rooms have patios where you can sit outside and enjoy the nicely kept garden. Note, because of the sloop where it is built, the ground floor is the middle floor.
Meals were excellent. Plenty of choice. Each day a series of specials.
Staff did their best to ensure you were well looked after.
Good parking. Three for the less able next to the new building.

We have returned from spending another break at this very well run hotel where friendliness and guest comfort are obviously of paramount importance. The young staff are delightful and have been well trained to combine professionalism and friendly interaction with guests in a highly acceptable manner and strike exactly the right note. It is obvious that this attitude comes from the top and we were made to feel most welcome with all members of staff taking time to exchange pleasantries and to give advice re sight seeing etc. In fact the attitudes were much more genuine than in a famous multi starred Scottish golfing hotel in which we recently stayed. The napery and cutlery in the restuarant/dining room were immaculate and the food was very good and more than adequate in amount. Our room was large roomy and comfortable and everywhere was spotlessly clean.

A comment re disability.
The room adapted for disabled persons might be improved by having twin beds. Some disabilities make it difficult for for people to share the same bed and also often carers who are not bed partners with the disabled person may have to share a room in order for care to be given during the night etc. The beds need not be far apart to utilise the space available.

Room Tip: If disabled the adapted room in an adjacent annexe (12 metres from main entrance) is very well appoi...

This hotel is out of town, and has a quiet location in a leafy suburb. As we flew to Inverness, we commuted to and from the airport by taxi. Conveniently there is bus stop within 2 minutes walk of the front door of the hotel, and you can be in the town centre in 15 minutes.
We received a polite but subdued welcome, probably because we arrived at noon and of course our room was not ready, which wasn't a big problem for us. So we had a bite to eat in the superb conservatory cum dining room. The food was OK but probably all micro-waved. Room 25 is a large room in the annexe, with 2 superb American sized beds. The bathroom is large too with a great shower.
As it was a small hassle to go into town to find a nice restaurant for dinner, we ate in the hotel. We were not over-impressed with the quality of the meal and suspect that the microwave was kept busy again. However on a positive note, I have to say that the waiting staff were very attentive and gave us good service.
Breakfast on both mornings of our stay was good with an excellent choice and variety. Scottish kippers are available - yummy!
This place is OK , but needs a bit of a shake up to make it more attractive in some of the public areas. The bar area is pretty dire as is the garden which could be made more colourful. The dinner menu, at least, needs to be a little bit more exciting.

I am not sure that we would return to Lochardil House Hotel, but it is comfortable, quiet, and it is fairly relaxing.

Of our nearly six week holiday in the U.K. and Spain, this is without doubt the best time and place we spent. Our six day stay was wonderful. The hotel is beautiful, clean and the food and the way in which it was prepared and served was excellent. I would have absolutely no hesitation on returning to this hotel on my next vacation to Inverness, Scotland

Room Tip: The lounge and dining room facilities are excellent and the staff will do anything to make your stay...

A beautiful, historic former residence you can read about in lobby area. All staff are smiling and helpful. Meals served in a warm, inviting glassed-in dining room overlooking delightful gardens. Wait staff are the best I have seen in many years...no hovering, quiet and in the background but very watchful and efficient. Food excellent and a wonderful breakfast buffet with the creamiest eggs I have ever eaten. Lounge is scattered with leather sofas, chairs and tables for dining or just beverages. Our room was clean and quiet with very large sparkling clean bathroom. Bed was not the most comfortable, but adequate. Five days were enough to get in plenty of walking to town centre and being close to the river only added to the pleasure of these trips. Never used an umbrella while we were there. Would visit again.
