Me and my fiance recently returned from a long weekend in Inverness and enjoyed our stay at the Glen Mhor hotel. The location is certainly spectacular, lovely views, near to some nice river walks and with nice views from the breakfast room. We paid the small supplement to get the nicer riverview rooms, and if you are not too pressed on budget I would recomend this, as the room was large, with nice views and a lovely stand alone bath, walk-in closet and decent toilet/shower-room. The bed was also extremely comfortable, although one of the feather (I think) pillows was beginning to have small sharp bits coming through. Breakfast buffet was very pleasant, decent quality, with some nice options, and the chance to ask the staff if you wanted anything additional like different eggs. Full marks for having gluten free bread available as well! Only a couple quibbles prevent this getting 5 stars. Firstly, the floors/plumbing/bed were all extremely squeeky and noisy. This meant it was easy to wake your partner up when they were sleeping by using the bathroom or just walking in the wrong point. Hard to fix, but worth mentioning, as I know some people who can get really worked up about this! There was also some confusion with the Wi-Fi, it's advertised on the website that you get free Wi-Fi when booking with the hotel direct, otherwise its £4:99 a day. Now, at the price-point their advertising I think the Wi-Fi should usually be a given, which they seem to accept as they now have two networks. One is the Glen Mhor Premium Wi-Fi and the other free. I was unclear as to whether we got access to the premium or not having booked direct with the hotel, and when asking at the desk was dismissed with a simple you don't need a code to login. The free wi-fi was functional but extremely slow and occasionaly freezing completely. This brings me to the only other quibble, which was that while the waiters, bar staff and cleaners were all lovely and friendly the main reception staff seemed to lack this quality. Above situation is an example, but even when we arrived one of the staff was having a moan to their colleague and took a minute to notice us. Overall we would not be against staying again if in Inverness, but it could improve to live up to its undoubted potential. Collapse

Tried to book in but was early and had to leave our luggage in a room that was used by anybody and everybody. The loacation was spot on, close enough to the city centre of Inverness but far enough away that it was quiet. The room was clean but could have benefited from a mirror for "her who has to be obeyed" to blow dry her hair (trivial point). The staff in the restaurant and bar were exceptional even lighted the wood stove for us. The breakfast was brilliant. I definately recommend the Glen Mhor hotel. Collapse

Comfortable, clean and quiet hotel and room. Friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant and Bar on-site. Restaurant meal Ok - but hard chips (cooked too fast too hot) mentioned at the time, received a weak apology. Comfortable Bar but highly priced. Good to be able to leave luggage on-site after check-out. However, I have stayed before and I would re-use this Hotel. Collapse

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Glen Mhor. Our room was warm and cosy, very comfortable and well furnished. Our breakfasts were all very good, with a wide selection of foods to choose from. We had dinner in the restaurant which was a very pleasant experience too. The location of the hotel could not be bettered, within a few minutes of the city centre and with lovely views over the River Ness to the cathedral. There is extremely easy access to the riverside walks and islands, to Eden Court and to all the attractions the city has to offer.. Staff were friendly and efficient. Collapse

From the outside, this hotel looks like an idyllic selection for your weekend stay in Inverness. It promises delightful scenery (if you are lucky to get a forward-facing room) of the River Ness and, the hotel lures the customer in with the appearance of quirky Scottish feel to it. However, promises certainly have been broken with this disappointing stay. Now, we did book a standard (which were particularly low), classic room – for which I can only comment on. To start my pillory off, the price was clearly a tad too steep based on our judgement of the room size, alone. There are much larger and, comparatively more modern hotels in the town, for around the same price range, such as the Kingsmills Hotel. The bathroom would barely meet SSPCA spacing regulations for a bird’s cage – it was pathetic. There wasn’t even enough toilet roll available for less than 10 hours use. Also, due to the proximity of the shower to the toilet, one could sit on the toilet seat, whilst soaking their hair under the shower head – if one would wish to do so. Moving on to the bedroom, which, on first impression did continue the false sense of security provided by the website photos – there was a tartan ‘throw’ on the bed and, a lovely scenic image out of the window of the calm River Ness, natheless, this did not make up for the reality of the room. A tiny cube which resembled a television sat on a 1970s bedside table or, potentially, a bird feeder, stood next to the door. The wardrobes I could accept, they had coat hangers within them, nothing further to comment on there. The walls were covered in blemishes, marks and, cracks around the skirting board – a little paint would sort this out. Everything generally had a tarnished and stale feel about it. Finally, the bed possessed two pillows on each side – on one side, you would be destined to become entrapped by the pillow enveloping your head, and on the other, two normal pillows. Why the freakishly odd difference? Perhaps a 1:1 ratio of each pillow? Perhaps, I am so despondent about this room I am going a little over the top... That may have been true, if, I had not found the little treat under our sheets. What is this treat you ask? No, not a complimentary chocolate or a stray rose petal. No. It belonged to the previous occupant of the room, potentially, previous to that – half a sock! This did make one question what other surprises may have been lurking within the room. In the morning, breakfast was a selection of fairly low quality hot food; the porridge is of the same brand used at HM Prison Belmarsh. The cold food was of bare minimum with no alternatives for vegetarians or vegans. Although, there is plenty of seating and tables with a nice view out to the river. In summary, I will not be forking out again at the Glen Mhor for anything less than a desperate last minute booking. The hotel does have potential to be a quirky boutique hotel, with a wee touch up of paint and some TLC. Until then, I would recommend looking elsewhere. The only reason I did not downgrade my review to one stars is as a result of the location - which is smack-bang in the middle of the city and, there are worse stays out there! Collapse
