We stayed here for a night on our trip to Inverness during the winter. Our room was located facing the river. The view was awesome with Christmas lights on the other side of the river making it even better. The morning breakfast is made to order and is one of the best ever we had. The hotel manager that morning...

I had a very nice stay at the Waterside. It is a more traditional type hotel in an older building, but it is very comfortable. Breakfast was top notch and there is plenty of parking. I had a great room with a view over the river.

I worked as a barmaid 40 years ago when the Waterside was known as the Haughdale. The improvements which have been made are absolutely stunning. The visit was a treat for my husband`s 75th birthday with a high tea meal with two friends who had travelled from Arbroath but were staying in a different venue. I had made the booking...

The furniture in our room was a bit old but quite serviceable, there was a higher amount of noise between rooms than I would prefer but I am sensitive to that type of thing. We got an onsite car park but only just and was glad we did not arrive any later in the evening. A nice smile on arrival...
