“Great Hotel - Marathon Location”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

This hotel is set in a quiet residential setting. Once arrived, plenty of car parking spaces. Reception staff where very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in one of the Deluxe rooms. Two double beds. Great sized bathroom. Very clean. My sister and her husband stayed in the Victorian House and was upgraded to a Suite for their last night. Was a nice gesture. The waiting staff where great. Very friendly and making sure everything was okay. The breakfast was great, good choice. Just help yourself to what you want. Dinner was good too. We where there for the inverness Marathon. Great location for this. A short walk down the hill and your at the park where you can get your registration pack etc. The gardens of this hotel are so quiet and relaxing. If your looking for a Inverness getaway. Don't hesitate...Book this hotel! Everything about this hotel is fantastic.

Room Tip: Choose the Deluxe room for space and a good sized bathroom and views over garden.

This is now my forth stay at this hotel which my company discovered by chance and having staying in numerous hotel across Scotland and paying three time the amount I can honestly say this is the most welcoming hotel of them all.
Graeme and his father and his staff go out of their way to ensure after a long business day you are treated like one of their family and nothing is to much trouble
The rooms are spotless and comfortable and the shortbread and free bottled water is a nice touch
The food is to a high standard and there is always plenty of choice and the breakfast is to die for particularly the black pudding no luke warm buffet here
I am returning this week and now specify this hotel to my travel coordinator ever time I travel to the highlands and intend to take my partner on a pleasure trip in the summer and defiantly will be staying here

Stayed here for a couple of nights recently and we were very impressed. The Lochardil had a good reputation many moons ago but, for some reason, we stopped hearing anything about the place in recent years. .

Good to see it's back in the game again now ! It's situated not far from the city centre but in a very pleasant area of town
.
Staff were unfailingly helpful and the food was good. Room was lovely too. Our stay was very good value too.

We would return and have recommended to others. Indeed friends of ours who live locally, have booked it for their wedding this year as they were very impressed too. Good to see "The Lochardil" back on form.

We got married here last April and have nothing but praise for the venue and the staff. We had the whole wedding and reception in the hotel and everything from the ceremony to the meal to the evening reception was amazing. The staff were so professional and the food was delicious and hot. We have had so many positive comments from our guests and would recommend in a heartbeat. If you are looking for a stress free, happy, fun wedding I would definitely point you in the direction of lochardil house hotel.

A little apprehensive on going here for a birthday dinner after several negative comments about the food from friends, however I do not know what they were talking about. As said, we only ate here and did not stay in the hotel, but the food was lovely and the menu offered a wide variety of dishes. All the food was fresh, service good and staff friendly. Good portion sizes too and all well cooked. I also thought it was good value - I cannot remember the exact figure, but they offer a deal for 2 or 3 dishes. We all took all three dishes, and for what is was we all agreed the value was great.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. The room we had in the newer wing was immaculately presented, well lit, roomy and cosy. Breakfast was excellent and we decided to have dinner in the conservatory on both nights. Graeme and his staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs. Lovely location not far from the centre of the city and a great base to explore Inverness and its surrounds.

Stayed here for work during the recent storms. Arrived around 0100 and the staff had layer soup and bread on for us. They were very pleased we were there and we even managed yo grab a beer before turning in for the night.

The room was just what I needed all the essentials and an amazingly comfy bed.

Breakfast in the morning was great. The full fry up help yourself buffet was very good. For me it's the sausages that make the breakfast and they had both beef and pork. So for me, amazing.

Would I return for pleasure. With out a doubt.
