6/10 Good

The staff were friendly and the beer was very good. The room was quite small and there was no soap or shampoo in the bathroom.

Good enough for sleeping
Good room just to sleep in. Very basic but value for money.

4/10 Fair

Very disappointing
Very small room mostly taken up by the bunk bed. No storage for clothes. No furniture other than a small stool. While the shower was a fair size, you had to go sideways to get into it. The small pillow easily falls off the bed via a gap between the mattress and the bed board. A lot if noise from a) the secret garden, b) rubbish collection in the early hours and c) some sort of fan or air conditioning unit outside near the window which went active from time to time. The free WiFi was very slow and kept dropping. On the less important side, the bathroom extractor fan was not working, the light over the mirror was not working and the shower hot tap was difficult to use - I would guess it was just about to break completely. For the price (£81.00 per night), not even close to value for money! While I'll be returning to Inverness, I certainly won't be staying here again.

6/10 Good

As basic as it gets
After an 8 hour train journey from London i was ready for a good nights sleep. I got my key from the bar staff who asked if i was staying in the Hostel or the Hotel? "Hotel!!" I said.. aah, ive found you.. Your room is through those door's past the packed drinking area. On arrival to my room i was greated with a single bed, and not much else.. No air conditioning, no fan, a small table with tea and coffee, kettle.. and the Shower / toilet area. As i was really tired, despite the loud generator nouse outside my window, and the very thin pillow and uncomfortable mattress, I had sporadic sleep.. it was at this point i spared some sympathy for the people in the Hostel.. or was this the Hostel? On waking up I had a shower and escaped back to the train station for my journey back to the South.. I bet the hotel doesnt use my bed photo to attract potential visitors in future. In summary, I didnt feel safe enough to leave my case and wander around, but for a get your head down experience I wont be coming back.

4/10 Fair

Poor accommodation for the money, not sure if the price was purely due to the inner city location. Barely slept due to an extractor fan or generator buzzing/humming the entire night. Not even a tele in the room, I have had a lot more for my money in other places.
