Inverness Hotel Deals – Hotels Beside the River Ness

Inverness Hotel Deals

Premier Inn Inverness Centre (River Ness)

19-21 Huntly Street, Inverness, IV3 5PR

The Premier Inn Inverness Centre is located right beside the River Ness in the heart of Inverness.

The hotel is located on a one way street so you need to approach it from the right direction or it can get a little confusing. 

If you are approaching from Inverness you need to take the A82 through the city centre. When you cross the river you will see an Aldi supermarket on your right hand side, take the first left at the roundabout into Wells Street. Follow this along where it will bear right. You will then be following the river on your left.

There are some parking bays along this road and if you find one on the left then it might be a good option for parking. You do need to check the parking signs as some bays are for residents and some are for loading only.

If you are approaching from the A82 South then you need to continue into Inverness. Cross over the Tomnahurich Canal and keep straight on, rather than turning right at the roundabout. Keep going until you come to a set of traffic lights and bear left at the filter lane. This is Kenneth Street.

Follow it until you get to the roundabout and take the 4th exit into Wells Street. Approaching this way gives you the maximum chance of finding a parking space by the river.

Street parking is generally free of charge from 6pm – 8am.

At the front of the hotel are some bays where you should be able to drop off your luggage if you haven’t been able to find parking. 

Parking at this hotel is very limited (12 spaces) and you cannot book it in advance. There is a £10 charge for the parking for up to 24 hours. There have been some comments about having to pay again for parking if you leave and then return.

With parking being so limited some guests have been loathed to take their cars out at all for fear of losing their space.

If you prefer a cheaper option, with more availability, head for the Cathedral car park. 

From the front of the hotel head straight across at the traffic lights. There is a slight right hand bend which is a junction. Turn left here. The Cathedral is directly infront of you and the car park is just past the Cathedral on your right hand side. There is also an electric car charging point there as well. 

It is a pay and display car park which costs approximately £5 for 24 hours. You can use the RingGo service to pay by card or text. This is quite a handy service as you can renew your parking ticket without returning to the car.

The Premier Inn Inverness Centre has a Thyme restaurant offering the standard Premier Inn menu for evening meals. A buffet breakfast is also served there in the mornings. 

Just a little note to take care with the name. There are two Premier Inn Inverness Centre’s! One is the River Ness one and the other is a little bit out of the city.

Professional Traveller Summary;

  • Good central location right in City Centre and close to River Ness
  • A great Inverness Hotel deals choice if you like Premier Inn’s and their facilities
  • Good option if travelling by public transport
  • Plenty of places to eat close by
  • Limited parking on site but with parking in the area

A good choice if you like Premier Inn’s

Mercure Hotel Invernes

Inverness Hotel Deals

Mercure Inverness

Church Street, Inverness, IV1 1QY

(Note this is the actual address of the hotel, but the car park is located on Bank Street, Inverness)

The Mercure has a lovely location right beside the River Ness.

The public bar and restaurant look over the River making it a pleasant spot to watch people and the river slip by.

I have stayed a couple of times at this hotel, family members have stayed and work colleagues. It’s one of my spots for meeting people for a coffee in the city centre.

A big advantage The Mercure has is that there is a car park on site. It’s a pay car park with limited spaces. You can use your phone to pay for parking which is helpful as it sends a message when your parking is going to expire, allowing you to top it up without returning to the car.

If you are entering The Mercure from the car park, Ness Bank side, you enter the hotel and then need to take the lift or stairs up one level to the reception area.

If you are entering the hotel from Church Street you will be arriving at the same level as the reception area.

Rooms are available looking over Church Street or the River. Whilst Church Street is quieter in terms of traffic there can still be noise from buses and pedestrians.

Rooms overlooking the river are further back from the road so the noise is generally a bit less.

The Mercure was refurbished a little while ago, giving a slightly different mix of rooms and upgrading the furnishings.

The compact rooms are just that, very compact.

The Mercure is also a pet friendly hotel.

Professional Traveller Summary;

  • A great Inverness hotels choice with city centre location and beside the River Ness
  • Restyled hotel offers modern decor and furnishings with nice Scottish touches
  • Nice bar and restaurant with lots of places to eat on your doorstep
  • Great to have parking on site (although the car park is open to public and not just for hotel guests)

A good city centre option with parking and pet friendly option

Columba Hotel, Inverness

Inverness Hotel Deals

Columba Hotel Inverness

7 Ness Walk, Inverness, IV3 5NF

The Columba Hotel has a lovely location. It looks across to Inverness Castle and is beside the River Ness (not directly beside the River as there is a road). The hotel has good views of the river and the castle from the front facing rooms.

I have stayed many times individually, family members have stayed and I have also stayed there with tour groups. I have also had lots of coffee catch ups in McNabs.

The Columba Hotel has it’s own Victoria Restaurant and McNabs Bistro is located on the ground floor which has serves a bar menu all day.

Rooms do vary in size at the Columba Hotel. Some of the larger executive rooms are to the front with smaller and single rooms being towards the back.

There is no parking at the Columba Hotel but there is some on street parking available free of charge from 6pm to 8am with paid parking outwith those times. However, there are very few spaces on the street.

The Columba Hotel is located on a one way street and you need to approach it the right way because of a no right turn restriction at the junction.

You need to cross over Ness Bridge in Inverness in the direction going away from the Castle, so out of the city centre. Immediately at the end of the bridge turn left into Ardross Terrace and the Columba Hotel is just on your right hand side.

To get to the car parking continue past the Columba Hotel. The road bends round to the right a little at a junction. Turn left. You will see the Cathedral directly infront of you and the Cathedral car park is a short distance down on your right hand side.

It is a pay and display car park which costs approximately £5 for 24 hours. You can use the RingGo service to pay by card or text. This is quite a handy service as you can renew your parking ticket without returning to the car.

It is probably no more than five minutes walk back from the car park to the Columba hotel.

Professional Traveller Summary;

  • A great Inverness hotel deals choice beside the River Ness

Palace Hotel, Inverness

Inverness Hotel Deals

Best Western Palace Hotel and Spa

8 Ness Walk, Inverness, IV3 5NG

Located next door to the Columba Hotel The Best Western Palace also has a great position beside the River and overlooking the Castle.

The hotel is often called the Inverness Palace Hotel or simply the Palace Hotel which can be confusing at times.

On the ground floor is Eight on the River, which serves evening meals and is also where breakfast is served. Also on the ground floor is The Brasserie. Both dining spaces offer the same menu – upscale classics.

I like the Brasserie area for a coffee and a nice piece of cake. It’s a nice bright space and I’ve used it a number of times for meeting people.

The Best Western Palace Hotel does have it’s own parking, although spaces are very limited (only 22 in total).  These spaces are often used by those using the leisure centre as these are open to non-residents who are members of the leisure centre.

There is some very limited on street parking bays available, which are generally free from 6pm – 8am.

The nearest car park is the Cathedral car park. The details of this are as above as it is the same for the Columba Hotel.

Like the Columba Hotel you need to approach the Best Western Palace and Spa from Ness Bridge, heading out of the city, otherwise you can’t turn down the one way street which is Ness Walk.

The hotels at the front are generally larger and bright with views of the castle and the river.

There is an interesting option to rent a townhouse or cottage which are both part of the hotel, but give a feeling of independence. These sound ideal for groups as they are self contained but part of the hotel.

One of the lovely things about the Palace Hotel is the pool area. It has a small pool and jacuzzi. Alongside there is also a good sized gym area.

There is a also a nice beauty service, called Sleeping Beauty, which is run by an independent company in the hotel. They have a wide range of treatments including massages, facials etc.

I’ve stayed at the Palace Hotel with tours and on my own and I enjoyed using the pool as a nice change when travelling.

The Palace Hotel is also pet friendly.

Glen Mhor, Inverness

Inverness Hotel Deals

Glen Mhor Hotel

7-17 Ness Bank, Inverness, IV2 4SG

The Glen Mhor is surprisingly large with 110 bedrooms.

It does not have a lift which can be difficult if you are on the 3rd floor so if stairs are a problem be sure to request a lower floor room.

There is a mix of rooms with deluxe and larger rooms being the ones overlooking the river.

The Glen Mhor hotel is located on the same side of the river as Inverness Castle and the hotel is beside the river (albeit a road directly between the hotel and the river).

If you are looking for a nice alternative to a room – the hotel also has a selection of apartments within it’s buildings, not necessarily in the main building. These are completely self contained and range from 1 to 3 bedroomed apartments.

Parking is available on site. The car park entrance is on Haugh Road, the B862 which runs at the rear of the hotel.

Space is less than the capacity of the hotel but there is quite a lot of on street parking available beside the river, which is free during the evening and night, for daytime it is best to check the signs.

The Glen Mhor hotel now has a Waterside Restaurant located on the ground floor at the front of the hotel. It has a varied menu with an early evening menu available as well.

There is a cosy little bar at the back of the hotel called Nicky Tam’s Whisky & Wine Bar. In the winter months there is a nice woodburning stove and it’s a pleasant spot to meet up with people.

The Glen Mhor is also pet friendly.

Read the TripAdvisor reviews of the Glen Mhor Hotel

Professional Traveller Summary;

  • A great Inverness hotel deals choice in a slightly quieter area of city beside the River Ness
  • Great range of accommodation options from rooms to apartments
  • Parking on site, only for those staying or using the hotel

Ness Walk, Inverness

Inverness Hotel Deals

Ness Walk Hotel

12 Ness Walk, IV3 5 SQ

Ness Walk is one of the newest additions to the hotels in Inverness.

It’s a 5 star hotel and definitely a luxury option, with beautiful spacious and well decorated rooms right through to luxury toiletries.

The Ness Walk hotel occupies a lovely spot just beside the River Ness. It is just a few minutes walk from the Castle so is away from the noise of the centre.

It is also set in lovely grounds which mean the rooms have either views across the gardens to the river, or garden views.

Some rooms have terraces and there are also huge floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the location.

For those wanting something even more special there are a couple of suites.

The Ness Walk Hotel has it’s own restaurant, the Torrish, which features a two course menu for £30 (although there are a number of supplements for certain dishes, such as £10 supplement for Venison loin). The menu has a real Scottish focus with some interesting takes on dishes. (Prices and dishes will vary according to season.)

The hotel also has a wine and whisky bar which also promises great cocktails.

There is free parking available at the hotel on site.

I haven’t stayed in this hotel but it’s on my list for sure!

Inverness Hotel Deals – Hotels in the City Centre

Inverness Hotel Deals

King’s Highway

72-74 Church Street, Inverness, IV1 1EN

The King’s Highway is a Wetherspoon hotel. It is attached to the Wetherspoon pub although there is separate entrance and reception area for the hotel.

Church Street is a one way street so you need to approach it from Friar’s Lane. If you are coming through Inverness on the A82 from the A9 then take the left at Shore Street Roundabout. Then move over into the right hand land ready for the traffic lights. Turn right at the traffic lights and Church Street is the first turn on your left.

If you are looking for parking when you enter Church Street my recommendation would be to take any space you see. It isn’t far to walk to the King’s Highway from anywhere in Church Street but once you get to the hotel entrance itself there isn’t much parking available.

The first thing to say is that there is no parking at Wetherspoons. There is some on street parking available and this is free after 6pm (double check the signs) through until around 8am. There are quite a few loading bays on Church Street and these get used for parking after 6pm as well.

The nearest car park is the 24 hour Rose Street multi-storey car park. It is located at 24 Rose Street, Inverness, IV1 1NQ. You take a ticket on entry and then pay at the pay stations on the ground level when you leave. A lift serves every other floor.

This car park has quite small parking bays and there are lots of concrete pillars to take care when parking. I’ve had my car door dinged in this car park too.

On exiting the car park turn right, follow the pavement around with the bus station on your left. Keep walking past Charlie’s Cafe. You will come to Academy Street which you need to cross. Continue walking in the same direction ie. away from the bus station and you will find Church Street. It runs parallel to Academy Street.

The King’s Highway is a mid budget hotel, and it can have some very good prices available. Several years ago it was refurbished and it is less budget and more mid range than it was.

However, there can be some rooms that experience street noise from Church Street. This is mainly people in the street rather than traffic.

Rooms at the back tend to be quieter but also a bit darker. Some of the rooms can be quite small which is not surprising given the city location of the hotel.

There is a lift that will take you to your rooms and there is a secure door between the pub and the hotel area.

Breakfast is available to buy in the pub area. I have found this OK for an early breakfast but if you leave it until mid morning the pub is starting to fill up with people drinking. I don’t really enjoy eating my breakfast surrounded by people drinking.

I wouldn’t eat in the pub in the evening. It’s busy, noisy and often has a number of people who have had quite a lot to drink there. As a single traveller I don’t like the atmosphere and as someone who chooses not to drink alcohol it’s the type of place I avoid.

There are plenty of nice places around Inverness to eat with a much nicer atmosphere.

Of course Wetherspoon’s is known for it’s budget priced food so it is probably one of the cheaper places to eat.

I’ve stayed at the Kings Highway a number of times when working in Inverness and having an early start. I’ve found it good value with clean and tidy rooms.

Read the TripAdvisor reviews of the King’s Highway

Professional Traveller Summary;

  • A great Inverness hotel deals choice if travelling by public transport
  • Good value rooms for a city centre location
  • Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby

A good mid budget hotel right in the heart of Inverness

Inverness Hotel Deals

Pentahotel

63 Academy Street, Inverness, IV1 1LU

The Pentahotel is located in Academy Street, which is one of the main streets in Inverness with plenty of through traffic and buses.

There is no parking on site. The nearest car park the Rose Street multi storey car park. 24 Rose St, Inverness IV1 1NQ. You collect a ticket on entry and then pay at the pay stations on the ground floor before you leave. You can pay by card and it costs £7 for 24 hours with £5 every 24 hours after.

Take care in this car park though as there are plenty of concrete supports that can make parking a bit tricky. Some of the spaces are quite tight and both me and my family member have had a car door dinged here. As such I would recommend keeping going up until you find more space. There is a lift which serves every other floor.

When you come back down to the ground floor head away from the library (grand building on your left as you exit the car park) and walk past Charlie’s cafe. The exit from the bus station joins Academy Street where the Pentahotel is.

The ground floor of the hotel is the PentaBar with the reception area to the rear. The bar serves burgers, grills etc.

The rooms are quite stripped down, which gave it quite a budget feel in my view. Everything was comfortable and clean and there is a lift from the ground floor.

Rooms at the back of the hotel should be a little quieter than those at the front but given it’s location there is likely to be some noise wherever you are in this hotel.

The Pentahotel is pet friendly, with the price for pets £20 extra per stay rather than per night.

Read the TripAdvisor reviews for the Pentahotel

Professional Traveller Summary;

  • Great location if travelling by public transport – close to bus and train station
  • A great Inverness hotel deals choice with budget style rooms with nice public areas

A good city centre option, especially if travelling by public transport, and pet friendly too

Royal Highland Hotel

18 Station Square, Academy Street, Inverness, IV1 1LG

The Royal Highland Hotel is often referred to as the Station Hotel, because that was what it was originally and it is located right next to Inverness railway station.

This can make it a good place to stay if you want to explore other parts of Scotland by train. There are trains going North, South, East and West from Inverness.

It has 86 rooms and the entrance to the Royal Highland Hotel is adjacent to the main entrance of the railway station on Academy Street. The foyer is quite grand and has a number of tables and chairs in the foyer as there is a little bar and coffee area tucked in the corner. It’s called the Art Gallery Cafe because of a number of artworks, including a large piece on the stairs.

Also on the ground floor is the hotel restaurant, Ash. The menu is mixed and varied, with everything from fish and chips to curry and carbonara.

The reception desk is just inside the main entrance. There are also toilets on the ground floor and lifts to the rooms.

There is no parking available at the hotel. There is extremely limited parking outside the front entrance but this is usually full.

As such the nearest car park is either Rose Street Multi Storey car park. 24 Rose St, Inverness IV1 1NQ. You collect a ticket on entry and then pay at the pay stations on the ground floor before you leave. You can pay by card and it costs £7 for 24 hours with £5 every 24 hours after.

As mentioned above this car park is a little tricky to park in sometimes due to the concrete pillars and narrow spaces. However, it is well lit and has a lift.

The easiest way to reach the Royal Highland Hotel is to turn right when you exit the car park into the bus station area. Follow the footpath round, with the bus station on your left and walk past Charlie’s Cafe, also on your left. When you get to the junction with Academy Street turn left and follow this along past various shops until you reach Station Square, which will be on your left. You will see the entrance to the railway station and the hotel.

Given it’s location The Royal Highland Hotel is likely to experience some noise wherever you rooms is located.

For those arriving by rail the location is fantastic and if you want to park your car up for a few days and explore by rail it is also ideal.

Some of the rooms are on the smaller size in this hotel. The Royal rooms are larger.

The Royal Highland Hotel is pet friendly.

Redcliffe Hotel

1 Gordon Terrace, Inverness, IV2 3HD

I have never actually stayed at the Redcliffe Hotel but I have visited for meetings and lunches and had a look round while I was there.

The location of the Redcliffe is great. It’s in a nice part of the city, in the area behind the Castle. The location means there is easy access down into the city, with a walk down a short hill bringing you into the High Street.

The rooms are nicely furnished and decorated in a modern style. The hotel also has a nice restaurant including a wood fired pizza so there is a choice of menus which is always great.

The bar and restaurant are warm and welcoming with some tables outside and some dining in the conservatory area too.

There is some parking on site.

The Craigmonie is also dog friendly and there is plenty of parking on site, although when there are functions on too this can be over subscribed.

Kingsmills Hotel, Inverness

Inverness Hotel Deals

Kingsmills Hotel

Culcabock Road, Inverness, IV2 3LP

The Kingsmills is a large hotel set on the outskirts of Inverness. It is located next to the golf course.

Being slightly out of the centre means there is a more spacious and greener feel to the hotel thanks to it’s garden like surroundings.

The main building houses the reception, bar, restaurant, pool and spa area plus a large conference area. There are a mix of rooms of different sizes in this part of the building. Some of the rooms at the front of the hotel are a bit smaller and look over the car park.

The hotel has been expanded over the years and a recent addition has been some lovely garden annexe rooms which have small terrace areas. They have a modern, light and airy feel.

The swimming pool is nice with a good sized gym located nearby. There is a poolside lounge area, and spa treatments available to book.

Jurys Inn, Inverness

Inverness Hotel Deals

Jurys Inn

Millburn Road, Inverness, IV2 3TR

The Jurys Inn is located very close to the A9. It has 118 bedrooms in a large tower making it one of the larger Inverness hotels.

The hotel has changed hands over a number of years and whilst the inside has been refurbished the basic structure of the hotel such as the windows and double glazing have remained the same.

Jurys Inn has plenty of free parking right beside the hotel. On entering the hotel there is a reception area, with a restaurant area to the right and bar to the left.

Two lifts take guests to all floors. Just beside reception is a little snack bar area.

Also on the ground floor are various meeting rooms.

Towards the rear of the Jurys Inn is a decent sized pool with spa facilities and a gym. This is one of the larger hotel pools in Inverness.

Rooms at Jurys Inn are what you would expect from the group. However, some of the rooms can be a bit noisy. This could be because of road noise or just the fact that the windows are quite old so don’t necessarily provide the most effective insulation.

The evening meal service can be a bit hit and miss at Jurys. One of the issues seems to be that the meals are the same whether served in the bar, restaurant or room service, with sometimes a small number of staff having to cover all three. Depending on how busy it is this can cause some problems.

The main restaurant area, which is a large round area at the front of the hotel can be very cold.

The bar area is a good place to meet up for a coffee and there is good WIFI as well.

The breakfasts at Jury’s are self service and there is a good selection of vegan options. Sometimes there can be a bit of a wait for special items, again depending on how busy the hotel is.

Jurys does do a good loyalty scheme. Just signing up gets you a free coffee and then there are discounts on future stays and free coffees as well, so it is one of the few hotel schemes I joined.

If you don’t fancy eating in the restaurant Millburn takeaway is directly across the road (fish, chips & Chinese), plus a KFC very close as well.

Check out the TripAdvisor reviews of the Jurys Hotel

Rocpool is definitely a luxury hotel. It has four different types of bedrooms to choose from hip, chic, decadent and extra decadent.

Some extra decadent rooms feature a hot tub on a terrace outside the room and also double voyeur showers which sound interesting! All the rooms have large beds – emperor sized infact.

The Rocpool is also a fine dining restaurant featuring great ingredients with interesting touches or combinations. A 3 course meal is around £50 per person not including drinks.

The bar also serves lighter bites and some pub classics such as fish and chips at £13.50 per person.

Drumossie Hotel

Old Perth Road, Inverness, IV2 5BE

The Macdonald Drumossie Hotel is a large 4 star hotel set on the outskirts of Inverness. It’s location means it is set in a quiet and green area, in 9 acres of landscaped grounds infact.

Rooms are classicly styled and furnished as you would expect for a hotel at the more luxury end of the market.

The Drumossie Hotel has 44 bedrooms which you may find surprising given the size of the hotel. However, the Drumossie has some of the largest conference rooms and facilities in the area so it is popular with everything from exhibitions, to conferences, to parties and of course weddings.

The reception area is cosy and comfortable with big deep sofas. It is a great place to sit and chat over a coffee. This area, called The Lounge, also serves snacks and sandwiches during the day.

Upscale dining is available at the hotel restaurant, The Grill. Local quality ingredients are a key ingredient of the menu with dishes crafted and beautifully presented.

There are no leisure facilities at the Drumossie but there are grounds to take a wander round. Whilst the hotel is located outside of Inverness, just 1.5 miles away from the city centre, it is handy for the A9 and is on the Culloden Battlefield side of the city.

Holiday Inn Express

Stonyfield, Inverness, IV2 7PA

I have to admit to having a bit of a soft spot for the Holiday Inn Express. It is somewhere I used regularly for meetings and a spot of working while in Inverness. It’s also somewhere I have stayed a couple of times and got some really good rates.

The Holiday Inn Express is a more budget version of the Holiday Inn brand of course. This particular hotel is located in a business park area just outside Inverness itself.

To reach the hotel from the A9 you need to head out on the A96 towards Nairn and then double back on yourself as if coming back towards Inverness and then take the first left, just past The Snow Goose pub. As the road bears right turn left and you will see the Holiday Inn Express. There is plenty of free parking.

Reception is just through the double doors to the left. There is a breakfast area and meeting room. Rooms are as you would expect, clean and compact.

One of the reasons I like the Holiday Inn Express is that there is The Snow Goose pub opposite. This pub has nice fires burning and is a comfortable welcoming pub where you can enjoy a leisurely drink or a mid priced meal. They also have a separate vegan menu.

Also nearby is a multiplex cinema, the Vue, alongwith a BurgerKing and Pizza Hut if that’s your thing. These are all located on the Inverness Retail Park which has a variety of shops including The Range, selling everything for the home plus a very large Tesco store.

Bunchrew House Hotel, Inverness

Bunchrew House Hotel

Inverness, IV3 8TA

Located just 4.5 miles from Inverness on the A862 road Bunchrew House Hotel has a really lovely location. It’s described as the romantic hotel on the shore and that sums it up perfectly.

This turreted delight is perched on the edge of the Beauly Firth, set amongst trees and landscaped gardens.

Inside the reception and public areas are warm, comfortable and very welcoming. The interior matches the romantic exterior, with little nooks and areas and comfy seating so you can sit and gaze at or snuggle up to someone special.

Whilst I haven’t stayed at Bunchrew House I have been lucky enough to dine there a few times and I have always enjoyed the atmosphere, the welcome, the ambience and the food of course too.

Rooms are individually styled and individually names making picking the perfect room potentially quite difficult.

Bunchrew House is at the more luxury end of the market.

Inverness: A History (Paperback)

James Miller (author)

Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, is now Scotland’s youngest city, a vibrantly growing community and the main destination for all tourists who seek their Highland roots or that more elusive creature – Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster. Inverness’s history, however, belies its peaceful present. Founded by Scotland’s monarchs as a strategic outpost on a wild frontier, the royal burgh on the Ness has been caught up time and again in the struggles that mark Highland and British history. Over the centuries, rebels against Lowland rule, the forces of Robert Bruce, followers of the Lord of the Isles, the English soldiers of Cromwell’s army, and Jacobites have swaggered through its streets. Here, too, have come some of the great figures in Scotland’s story – from St Columba, Mary, Queen of Scots and the Marquis of Montrose to Prince Charles Edward Stuart and Johnson and Boswell.
