Couldn't fault the hotel at all. 4 rooms for 8 hens. Took out suitcases before room was ready so we could do out activities. Also helped one hen with keeping breast milk stored. Brilliant service. I'll be back!

No parking available on arrival,room fine but what appears to be budget fixtures and fittings [doors walls etc]made for a disturbed night due to every little noise and movement by arriving and departing guests filtering into our room. MAIN GRIPE Paid in full 8 days prior to arrival,yet Pentahotel have made a pending claim of £176-83p against my current account....

Loved this hotel, quirky, central and great facilities. I brought my dog and we both felt very welcome. Great for walking the dog in a safe environment. Would recommend it to anyone visiting this area. I had originally booked another hotel but switched to this one as I preferred it once I got here.

Nice boutique type hotel. Cosy reception/bar/ restaurant area and staff are all casually dressed but very nice. Rooms are quite large but clean and quite trendy. Tv has great options for tv and film- some fairly new releases and are free. Gym is compact but has some good equipment and free weights- just use your key card to use it...

Paid £60 and couldn't fault it. Easy to find, staff friendly, rooms spacious, well decorated and above all else it was silent. A fantastic nights sleep was had by us both. Only down side was rhe £15 a burger. But we eat out so all was fine.

Excellent hotel, excellent location. Would definitely recommend for anyone going to Inverness and wanting to explore the city, without having to drive. The hotel was clean, had a range of facilities and the bar area was beautiful.
