“Great staff and location”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Our first trip to Scotland started out on a positive note with the Heathmount. The location couldn't have been better just steps from the heart of Inverness and minutes from the train station. The staff was exceptional in both service, friendliness and cleanliness; our room was spotless every day. The included breakfast was as good if not better than we have had in any North American hotel. I will admit we were leery about the description of entering the hotel through the pub, in actuality you can get to the desk via the pub, restaurant or directly through the right hand door in the parking lot. When we asked about other restaurants in town the owner actually referred us to several then had an owner from an other pub drive us across town to a third (thanks George) it was all very unbelievable.

Hands up I usually stay at the Kingsmill Hotel when in Inverness but when I tried to arrange a booking this year the prices were extortionate - £305 for twin B & B with chargeable wi-fi !!! so onto TA and found the Heathmount. OK so it is a bit" quirky" shall we say, a wee island in between three roads and the hotel car park. Its probably not a hotel in the reception/residents lounge style - think more a good bar with rooms , but what rooms .... extremely well furnished, extremely comfortable and extremely well priced. Stayed on a B&B basis with the usual fare on offer, again prepared and served to a very good standard. short walk to town centre.
They don't try to hide that they have bars but any noise there may have been didn't travel upstairs and being honest you wouldn't have known there were any customers in. Staff all friendly and helpful and together with the bedrooms will take me back on my next visit to Inverness

Situated just 5 minutes walk from Inverness High Street, including the castle and nice walking bridges over the River Ness, we really enjoyed our stay here.

When we arrived we checked in at a busy bar, manned by a friendly lad who was also serving up drinks to the happy hour crowd clustered along the front side of the bar. The rooms were compact but stylish and cozy, with some of the nicest shower heads we saw in all of Scotland. We settled in and I had a drink with the locals and chatted to an old time local named Torquil, as well as the barkeep? Then we went out and walked around and dined at a restaurant called the Mustard Seed (top notch). Returning home, we stayed up and had a drink at the bar and chatted to the first bartender and his wingman who was on hand to staff the now busier bar and resto. Brekkie in the AM was top notch. Really a sweet spot to stay in charming Inverness.

Thank you for your recent review and so glad you enjoyed our cocktails. Torquil informed me of your review when I returned from my holiday last weekend. He has demanded a large vodka and tonic from me!!
Hope to welcome to back soon!

Upon arrival we found the bar to be rather busy but spotted the reception sign to the side, very quickly we were checked in and offered help to our room, despite being busy the bar was clean and tidy no used classes dotted about.

We decided to fund the room on our own and made our way up,the corridors were clean and tidy windows open but all very fresh. We had room 6 an attic room, well decorated and no maintenance issues. Obviously being an attic one side of room had limited head room but this was no issue and added to the quirky and nice feel to it. The bathroom had a spacious, powerful and very easy to use shower with a nice digital control, (on, off and up down for temp to the degree), the only minor niggle we had was due to the style of sink and location of tap you find it awkward to wash hands resulting in water going down side of sink. What was a pleasant surprise although we did not use was the leaflet explaining we could borrow from a large selection of dvds from reception. The bed was very comfy, room a nice temperature, wifi nice and quick, plenty of spare sockets in room for charging. We sampled a cocktail when the bar was at it's busiest and could not fault the quality and effort put into it. The next morning the restaurant/ bar area was immaculate, smelling and feeling fresh, a good selection of fruit, cereals and juices present on bar, good sized pots of tea and coffee brought to our table with lovely chunky seeded toast and breakfast to order. We both opted for the traditional breakfast and could nit have been happier, it is rare I find a fried egg cooked how I like (no crispy bits) and this was perfect, no grease on any of breakfast and a mouthwatering black pudding.

This was the 2nd hotel we stayed in In Inverness this weekend and will definitely look to return on our next trip.

First of all the staff are Fantastic, make you feel very welcome.
Rooms are supererb and very clean. Each room is individual and different.
Hotel bar/pub is very very good 100/100 with an excellant range of drinks at reasonable prices. And no riffraff..super pool table. If your travelling with children they can stay in bar with you even after 8pm. This was a very plus point for us as bars in town centre children are either not allowed in or have to leave after 8pm.
5/10 minute walk from City centre in a nice neighberhood.
If I ever stay in Inverness again it will be here. Just wish I had longer to enjoy it..

Room Tip: I can't fault hotel in any way. I have listed everything in my comments. Like a lot of hotels t...

I actually only booked this hotel because there was a good offer on Late Rooms, but what a find it turned out to be. It doesn't look so great on the outside, but the inside I really liked and the room was excellent - in fact it almost had a boutique hotel feel with its unusual and stylish décor. The facilities were also good - e.g. a proper power shower. I ate in the restaurant and the food was first-rate but the prices were very reasonable. The guy who I assumed was the manager was friendly and helpful. The location is also good and it's just a short walk to the city centre. Plenty of parking outside. Oh - and they even had two real ales on the bar as well. This is the seventh different hotel I've stayed at in Inverness and is now my favourite.
