I bought this trip through Groupon for £129 - 2nights, with breakfast each morning, 3 course dinner on one night and bottle of bubbly. Sorry it's taken a while to get round to writing the review. The location is great, with 24hour parking just a short walking distance away. The town center is right across the bridge and there are nice restaurants around it. The hotel itself is clean and the rooms were a decent size. The bathrooms could do with upgrading as they do not match the standard of the room. I wouldn't say the room we stayed in was 4 star - 3 at best. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The dinner we had on the first night was average, plenty of food and seemed to be of decent quality. Unfortunately our view wasn't the best as we were at the back but you could pay extra for a river view but at the price they were asking I wasn't prepared to pay for it. We were left to our own devices which suited me fine but were waiting a while when we asked for additional towels and loo roll. Overall I would recommend the hotel as it is in a good place for exploring Inverness and prices seem reasonable.
