Reviewed 7 June 2014

Our room was as far away as you could possibly get from the parking lot. We had lots of bags to pack up multiple staircases and through multiple doors. The rooms and linens were clean - pretty plain jane but functional. The pub downstairs could be a bit noisy. My adult daughter was awake until the pub shut down. Staff were friendly and breakfast was good. It's a bit off the beaten track - kind of a residential area by the looks of it. Lots of parking. It's okay, but I wouldn't choose to stay here again.

Hotel was okay, needs a bit of tlc. The rooms were not cleaned everyday of my stay, towels not replenished etc. Attention to detail needs to be improved, but the service from the lovely tall gent behind the bar was impeccable-couldn't fault him. Alright stay over all.

We got a car at Edimbourg and drove right to Inverness to know a bit of the place, lock ness, etc. We stayed at the Smithton Hotel during 3 or 4 nights, and the service was very good. The drawback is that you gotta go upstairs, no elevator, and with a baby that not very practical sometimes, but it worth staying at the last floor, once it's calm.

The hotel has a bar and restaurant downstairs, so in case you get a room close to it, probably it will be a bit noisy. Nice meals served at the place as well. Our baby began vomiting at our second day there, and when I asked if I could do the laundry regarding his stuff, they gave me access to the laundry with no problems. It was really helpful since we had like 5kgs of clothes to wash, only counting the baby.

The staff was really helpful and we liked a lot.

Room Tip: In case you want a calm room, ask for a room at the top floor, away from the bar.

I stayed here before several years ago and again last month, this is a great wee hotel, friendly staff, clean and comfortable. Would recommend this hotel no problem and would return with hesitation. Thanks for a great room and service.

The Smithton Hotel in Inverness isn't quite on the beaten track, however it really is a little hidden gem.
I have been travelling to Inverness regularly on business and have been using the hotel each time. Jennifer and the team are some of the most friendly staff I have ever met and will go out of their way to make you welcome - even bring you tea and toast when you have had a much later arrival than expected. The rooms are basic but comfortable, immaculate and with crisp snow white linens.
The food is good too and the breakfast bacon some of the best I have ever tasted.

well done the Smithton

My son and I stayed for two nights as we were doing Culloden and Fort George, The Smithton was within easy reach of both venues, so after a long day walking around, it was nice to come back to a hot shower, a drink (or two) and a nice meal, we also had the best nights sleep we've had for a long time! the beds were extremely comfortable and the room was clean. Staff polite and helpful. Would come again.
