Room Without A View!!!!!!!......The Dirty Dungeon

This is by far, the worst hotel I have ever had the misfortune to spend the night....and I cannot believe I paid for it?????.....Firstly the reception staff were curt and unhelpful....I was directed towards an outside door and told I was in a cottage....If you are given a room here beware, they are very dirty. My room 302 should be renamed the Dungeon as the view is a wall with an old step ladder. It felt so oppressive because you could not open the windows for fresh air....plus the window frame was dirty with flaking paint and mildew. The carpet had a large blob of hardened chewing gum on it....you would think someone would try to clean and remove it....The bathroom was awful....the bath was chipped and stained and it had mildew all round the edge of the bath...when you have a shower the bathroom floods, as the shower guard does not fit well...and the toilet is so close to the bath .....But perhaps the worst thing is that this room is next to the boiler room that grinds on and off throughout the night and in the early morning. It reminded me of an airplane engine starting up. It awakened me several times, and led to a very restless night. Also the floors are so creaky, I could hear every step amplified from the the room above...and I could clearly hear their conversations, as if they were in my room...the door did also not lock entirely and I felt unsafe....I wedged a chair against it all night......There is never any excuse for dirty rooms in any hotel....wish I had booked a Premier Inn....... As it would have been cheaper and cleaner!!!!! Collapse
One of my favourite hotels in Scotland

The Glen Mhor Hotel is located a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Inverness, right at the side of the river Ness, in several beautiful Victorian buildings, all of them (apart for one, still waiting for full renovation) modernised to a high standard with great taste. Over the years I have spent many a night in this fab establishment. Both by myself and in good company. I have always been delighted by the quality of the accommodation, kindness of staff, and generous and abundant breakfast. The Glen Mhor Hotel features some serviced apartments too, of the same standard as the hotel. And a large carpark (which nonetheless can fill up, esp. at busy times of year). At the Glen Mhor Hotel all details are curated and taken great care of. Nothing is left to chance. The rooms are decorated with great taste, as are the bathrooms. The showers are a delight to use. The tea trays feature complementary Walkers shortbread buiscuits, none of your cheaper and oversweet nonsense. As well as hot chocolate, of course, 'cos not everybody would indulge in tea or coffee before bedtime. Every room has a big mirror (sometimes adjustable) which is a pleasure to look into (or maybe it's just me, haha!). You won't find blown bulbs in the light above the sink, at GMH. The room staff check them. It's part of the care for details I was talking about. Wi-fi works, and it's complementary, no penny-pinching here. The tv-sets are usually modern flat-screen Samsung tellies, not the first-generation early 2000s tellies of several similarly priced hotels. Oh, and if you are lucky enough to be offered a room with river view, what a sight to wake up to in the morning! A great way to start the day! As the pictures I added I think suggest. Whether you have a river view or not, the beeakfast is sumptuous and caters for every taste and food preference I know of. It makes me jump out of bed with a spring in my step. Most of the food is available in a generous buffet. But the waiters are happy to take special requests for the kitchen to cook to order. I'm a fan of fried eggs with a runny yolk, and that's what I usually have (after my cereals, yogurt and fruit salad, oh yeah!). Alongside black pudding, mushrooms and bacon. Some of the waiters, knowing that that's what I order every time I stay, bring me my runny-yolked eggs with no need for me to order. Which is a lovely touch, I feel really pampered when that happens. A special mention (or re-mention) goes to the mushrooms on the buffet. Always cooked to perfection, absolutely delicious! Yummy! Finishing with... the start of my most recent stay: on every Winter day, upon entry in the foyer you'll be greeted by a roaring fire. A nice touch, before you even meet the warm and always professional staff. The staff is both Scottish and international. But even the international reception staff all speak excellent English, and always speak English. Other plus, if you have a chance to enjoy a meal in the restaurant, the food is superb! The hotel prices are pretty reasonable for the all-round quality of the hotel. Of course, you may a find cheaper stay elsewhere in Inverness, but I'm pretty confident your experience would be cheaper in every way. Hard as I may try, I can't fault this place. The GMH is a lovely independent hotel, and it deserves all the good reviews and awards that it gets (and it gets many!). I'm not exactly sure when my next stay at the Glen Mhor Hotel will be. But I'm looking forward to it already. Collapse
Poor accomodation in old building lacking comfort and facilities in room.

On arrival I was directed to a building outwith the hotel where rooms are located. These are certainly not 3/4 star. The rooms are very basic, the bed hard and uncomfortable (I'm still in discomfort) and the linen is old. The TV is a 19 inch monitor on top of the wardrobe so very difficult to see or hear. The shower is tiny box - ancient with mould stains on the sealant. The plumbing is again ancient and extremely noisy when the various rooms flush. Coupled with the creaking floorboards the level of external noise is not what would encourage rest or relaxation. I did not venture into the bar or restaurant so my experience is based purely on the standard of accommodation. For the price this is vastly overpriced and if you are looking for a decent nights rest then I suggest you keep looking. No controllable AC. Collapse
A very quick visit.

I was in Inverness and I was in need of a room for the night. I found and booked The Glen Mhor Hotel with my booking.com app on my phone. I was confused over wether there would be breakfast served or not as one app said no breakfast while the other app said breakfast included. Never mind, I would be leaving to catch one of the first trains out of Inverness so I would be way too early for breakfast. I had eaten in the Kings Highway and I had a 10 minute walk to the Glen Mohr beside the river Ness. It appeared to be quite big and sprawling as I neared it and I found the reception and went in. There were 2 receptionists on duty upon my arrival and my money was taken and I was given a key. My room was in the cottage across the way so I went across and found it. The evening was chilly on this February night but the cottage and my room were lovely and warm. My room was small and spotlessly clean with a good en-suite attached. I had driven up from Southern England earlier and I'd had a couple of beers in Wetherspoons with my meal so I was beginning to feel tired. I crawled into bed with the aim of watching a bit of television for a bit but I couldn't keep my eyes open. The bed was cosy and I went out quickly into dreamland and I slept well until my early alarm bought me to. The shower was good and easy to use and it woke me sufficiently. I was way too early for the breakfast which wasn't mentioned by either receptionist last night so I crept out into the dark streets. The station was a 7 or 8 minute walk and I arrived with another early bird ready to catch the first train. The Glen Mhor was very impersonal but I didn't do much more than sleep there and I can't fault the room or the bed, they were fine. I do like a breakfast to start my day and I'm still unsure wether the Glen Mhor served one. I also doubt wether I'll stay again because I prefer the individuality of a small B&B but I'm sure on a different night where I wasn't leaving early my view would probably be different. The setting beside the river was very pleasant and it's position within walking distance from the station and the town was the main reason for choosing this hotel. What I experienced was done very well. My visit was short and sweet and it was my second visit to Inverness, but it won't be my last. Collapse

We stayed here for two nights and had a lovely time. The staff in the hotel couldn't have been more accommodating. The room we were given wasn't suitable due to my husbands mobility issues. the receptionist was incredibly helpful finding us another suitable room, showing us a couple before hand to make sure it was ok for us. The rooms themselves are well furnished, clean and spacious. Ours had a lovely river view, extra cost, but worth it! The only thing missing was a full length mirror, but we coped. The bathroom was beautiful with a lovely huge bath and large walkin shower. Everything was very clean and well kept. The breakfast was a self service buffet with a large selection to choose from. The black pudding and sausages were to die for! You could also order fresh cooked eggs as you like them, although scrambled eggs were in the buffet. There was also a large selection of fresh fruit, yogurt, breads and croissants. We will definitely return for another weekend away, worth every penny. Full marks go the the wonderful receptionist for her lovely, helpful manner. Thank you Collapse
