Professional Traveller Review

This is a great hotel right beside the river. It’s ideal if you like the certainty of Premier Inn. There is very limited parking so it’s ideal if you are travelling by public transport, with the bus station and train station within easy reach.

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 6 pm – 8 am.

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. 

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 in front 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.

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

What’s Nearby

There are shops, cafes and restaurants around the River Ness area.

There is a kiltmakers just along from the hotel where you can find your family tartan.

Eden Court is just a short stroll along the river – it has the comfiest cinema seats and a varied theatre program.

I like the Kitchen Restaurant, which is close to the Premier Inn.

Its sister restaurant, The Mustard Seed, is across the river. Both are great places for meals made with fresh ingredients.

The menus change regularly to reflect the local food.

Things to Do

There are some nice walks around the river, including circular walks using the metal footbridges.

Eden Court is well worth a visit. Check out what’s on here.
