We had a fantastic 2 night stay in Inverness. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and the food was excellent. The hotel staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful, however, particular thanks go to Ryan at the reception desk and Alex (Waitress) for making our stay so memorable and enjoyable. We will definitely be looking to return.
Nothing. No complaints.
