Breakfast was excellent, hotel was stunning and scenic location. shower left alot to be desired, no cable tv as adverised and parking was a nightmare.
Convenience - location to the city centre The breakfast room was cold, probably the air con but when it is freezing outside a warm breakfast room would have been more comfortable
Standard of the eveing meals and breakfast Lift out of order
Room was efficiently set up. Bath was up to date. Public areas lacked warmth. Breakfast was efficient but not as pleasant as some of the competition.
very relaxing the heating in the room could be better
Central location and value for money.
The bar was very comfortable, hotel has a traditional charm Nothing comes to mind
Located half a block from Rocpool's Rendez-Vous restaurant, where we had reservations. The breakfast! Also, compared to other hotels, price asked is way too high for what we get. No parking space provided closeby to unload suitcases from car.
Offered single accommodation at a reasonable price. Comfortable lounge bar serving good quality simple light meals. Coffee rather weak and luke warm at breakfast and poor quality bread for toast.
It is in a great location and the staff were very helpful You could hear every step and door close on the the floor. There was no room darkening shade on the window, so light streamed in at 6 A.M.
Our party enjoyed a comfortable stay and an excellent breakfast.
right in the centre of the town with a great position on the river. staff all very friendly. room a bit dated
River view was nice. Rooms were spacious Lighting was poor, had to open drapes to get any light in the room. They charged for wi-fi. Service in the attached restaurant (Nicky Tams) was poor.
the location was perfect for our needs. The staff in general were very attentive and friendly. Quality of the breakfast was great although service appeared disorganised and slow
1. Staff, on the whole, tried thier best and were polite and friendly. 2. The daily room cleaning and replenishment of towels, coffee etc was excellent. 3. Car parking facilities were very good. 4. Views from the rooms at the front of the hotel were very pleasant. 1. Some room furnishings were in a poor state of repair (suitcase stand with leg broken & worn clothes-hanger holders in wardrobe - clothes kept falling.) 2. No view from windows other than in rooms at front of hotel. 3. Occasional door slamming and some noise late at night and very early in morning (but this is the fault of some guests and not the staff.)
The room was really big, excellent en-suite facilities and breakfast was excellent Cleaning standards were not good, dust lying on most surfaces
Good location, views, car parking Breakfast should not be an 'add-on' Room should not be up a narrow stair with access to the building by going out of the hotel! Dated hotel in need of major refurbishment!!
It is in a nice area & very handy handy for sightseeing & going shopping we booked online months ago and paid £20.00 more then our friends with us who just booked a few weeks before our stay, & we didnt specify any special room. We have been staying in your hotel for breaks for several years & have always had a good deal before
Good all round - location,Staff,Comfort, etc. but:- -:Somewhat overpriced
Our room had a great view of the river, lots of light, and a view of the castle/museum. The bed was comfortable and large. For some reason a room had not been assigned for us, although reception was able to see our reservation in their system. When she assigned a room, she upgraded us to a river view to make up for the inconvenience. The bathroom was a bit dark, and the modern, half glass screen inadequate for the design. Had I not been very careful, I would have drenched the floor by a normal shower.
we were put up in a room away up a windy stairs felt a bit like a little guest house the bit we were put in its a seperate building to the hotel and had to come out to get back in
The staff were lovely. Especially Alex...he is a mgr.. in training and bent over backwards to please. He was everywhere doing a variety of things...very impressive! Our room was newly refurbished but a tad small with no view. However, very clean and tidy
Living in Edinburgh we were in Inverness overnight to facilitate a visit to a Nursing Home in Dornoch. We wanted an overnight hotel, reasonably central, to facilitate bus journey to and from Dornoch. This worked out excellently and if we are doing the trip again we would want to stay at the Glenmoriston.
I think is a good location, overlooking the river and close to the centre of Inverness. The double superior room was spacious and comfortable. Great breakfast in hotel. Good powerful shower I think the executive double rooms are too small, fortunately we were moved to a superior room since our television was broken. This was a much better room. Also is a shame that there is no swimming pool or beauty/spa area
Staff were very friendly and welcoming. I had my room upgraded - though the building was a bit of warren so thought I was perhaps going to end up in another building, but it was just the extension of the orginal house. Standard of Decor within public areas was very good and of a standard you would expect Although in an upgraded room, I struggled to see what the "extras" where apart from bathrobes. I have stayed in other hotels in Inverness who have similar standards of room and are lower priced.
Good quality room service food Would have liked to have had air conditioning - the room was a little stuffy even though the weather was not warm The windows opened - which is fine - but I cannot sleep with open windows.
The helpfulness of the staff Nothing
Excellent restaurants, comfortable accommodation.
The food was fantastic, all staff were very attentative, Excellent all round Room was very cold on arrival took a long time too warm up. Sharing platter for 2 to start only 1 scallop and 3 prawns ??????? but plenty of everything else
As a single female traveller I felt welcome, safe and secure. Staff went out of their way to be helpful.
Quiet & friendly no 2 point plug for RSA appliances
Location perfect for us as we had no car so shopping was so easy. The fact that there was no real acknowledgement of the extreme inconvenience of having no water from late evening to breakfast time. We could have made a big fuss but we are not that type, but if I had handled that situation I would have handled it so differently.
I liked the central location easy to find from train station very smart inside Food prices way over the top £10 for a £5 breakfast
Check in process, excellent staff on Sunday night. Room was spotless, comfortable bed and good working area.
Staff was friendly and very accommodating. The breakfast was very good There was no car park, so when arriving we had to carry bags 4 blocks. The reception is part of the bar so you are greeted with loud throbbing music. The hot water in the shower varied so you had to be ready to move when the blast of pure hot water came through
polite knowlegdeable staff in hotel
Nothing really very basic room not welcoming laminate floor made it cold. Last occupier left shower jel hanging in bathroom shower and was still there when we arrived shower room very tired could have done with refurb. as above
Had disabled access room - huge!
Quality hotel at an affordable price! None.
The free intent was the only plus. Oh, and the cute little shampoo and soap that is provided. The location was awful. There's a "gentleman's club" three doors down and in the evening the hotel bar was full of creepy men waiting for the club to open. The bar plays club music at night and you could hear and feel it in our first floor room. There were drunk people outside in the early morning yelling and screaming and could be heard at all hours. The room was sparse with a worn out single couch and bedding that was flat with no cushion. The bed was low and kind of annoying to get in and out of. There were broken parts of the tempered glass bathroom walls and the shower was leaky so the water pressure was low. There was no carpet in the room but the carpet in the hall and stairway smelled awful like smoke and who knows what else. The lounge downstairs looked like a strip club atmosphere, too, and the drinks were way over priced. Breakfast was expensive, too so we just walked down the street to get a good breakfast at Rendezvous Cafe for a fraction of what the hotel was charging. This was our last leg in our trip and we were too tired to try and get a room somewhere else, abs since we didn't spend much time in the room anyway we just stayed. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.
Location & cleanliness Poor reception staff on arrival
High standard of cleanliness, enthusiasm of staff, quick restaurant service, convenient location.
Central location. Staff not aware of wifi charges. No water at night or morning of our stay.
Top class hotel
DVD selection for inroom use was great. Decor, in-room facilities and service were impressive. Very nice breakfast No obvious hotel reception so staff were sometimes hard to locate
I liked the quirkiness of the hotel - staff were excellent but it was a bit odd as there is no designated reception, you just have to hope there's staff about o help you - there were for us. Three main issues. Firstly the hotel smelled strange - perhaps of old tobacco? Secondly the bed frame sticks out and both my friend and I sustained bruises from it so be careful. Thirdly the bathroom door is glass and in our room was opposite the main room door so if you're on the loo and someone opens the door they can see straight in! Consider this when having your luggage delivered!
the welcome and the staff's interest in our comfort our room was close to the heating boiler which resulted in a noise from the fan
Rooms were luxurious Staff werer friendly - nothing was too much trouble. The location was good Directions to hotel were misleading
Food was amazing, rooms were excellent (perhaps a bit too hot), service and staff delivered a personal service. Porridge the best I have had for a good while! Lovely Rooms a bit too hot
The rooms are excellent, and the staff are very helpful, the whole experience was superb
High quality, quiet and relaxing. Quality food and attentive but not obtrusive staff none
The staff was extremely attentive. Floors were very creaky and loud in the room.
Staff extremely friendly and made us feel like Kings and queens. You certenly get the 5 star treatment at this hotel. The barman Andy can make any cocktail and you could sit and watch him do this all night long.
The room was spacious and clean. Staff was friendly. Good location. We booked a double room overlooking the river, but it was actually facing the other side.
Location in Inverness
The location and room size. Dreadful food, the previous reviews were right!
excellent location and lovely room
The food was good and resoabley priced location ideal spa facility an added bonus which we used,m had a great time some of the staff could get some training in communication skills with their guests
The hotel was warm,friendly and well located for exploring the city and countryside. The pool was lovely, very clean and large enough for a good swim. Great rooms, with plenty of storage space and well decorated. There was a turkey and tinsel party there which took over the lounge area so a drink downstairs was impossible.
Position plus the general cleanliness of both the bedrooms and the presentation of puclic rooms The evening meal was dreadfull. The menu was very basic but the quality of food was probably the worst I have ever experienced in an hotel. I took one mouthful of the main course and left the restaurant.
Very good Spa facilities Dining room is geared to coach tours, would be better for the longer term residents if they were in a separate area
Very nice room and spa facilities
Way too expensive for the tiny single bed in a small room with a half broken tv.
The warm friendly atmosphere, helpful staff and wonderful rooms made this a night to remember. It wasn't long enough!
The entrance and common areas were beautiful, room was delightful, spacious and clean. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and the food was perfect! Great location. Two blocks from everything important. Make sure you visit Hootinanny's a couple blocks away. They had amazing live music for tourists and locals alike. The hotel is located practically at the train station. There was limited parking and constant traffic (vehicle and pedestrians).
nice room and vert central reception not very friendly
Proximity to train station and city centre Wifi weak, essentially unusable in the room. Good signal in lobby but inconvient to go there just for wifi.
The central location Standard rooms were very average. Got a good price but would have been unimpressed if I'd had to pay full price. Also..........£9.50 for breakfast????? Come on!
excellent value and great variety at breakfast.
The shower did not have any hot water, and even though the website says parking is provided, in reality, the hotel has 4 spaces out front that are first come first serve, and the rest of the guests must pay for public parking.
We had a lovely stay. Our room was very pretty, comfortable and clean. The location cannot be beat. The breakfast included was not very good. Also, pur booking includes complementary cocktails upon arrival but all we received was a buy one get one 50% off coupon. Not quite the same deal there.
Proximity to train station and highway, lots of good bars and restaurants around. Cool looking Victorian hotel. Wi-fi was non-existent - which was bizarre given they had routers everywhere. Very unhelpful staff.
My room was situated at the back of the hotel, as it was warm the window was open. There were extractor fans running, and in the morning all I could smell in my room was cooking smells, I found it quite off putting.
NOTHING NOTHING TO EAT NO CRISPS AFTER A LONG JOURNEY A COFFEE WITH A GRUDGE THE ONLY GOOD THING WAS THE BEDROOM MY SISTERS SINGLE BEDBROOM WAS A DISGRACE NO CARPETS ON FLOOR OF HALL
stayed here 1 night, was very pleased with size of room, friendlystaff, didnt eat there.. good value.
My only complaint is that the room was rather cold and it wasn't evident how the radiators worked.
Warm, comfortable room - food very good Room was too close to kitchen/ restaurant area - noise from staff clearing up late at night - would check location of bedroom for future visit
Situated on lovely location on Riverside and very close to the shopping centre, castle etc.
The Hotel was ideally located for a city break to Inverness and overall was very comfortable. The basin in my room was not clean when I arrived and the toilet bowl was also less then prestine.
very good view from room104 parking facility was rather poorly organised- a good smooth area with marked out slots would help.
it's a bit far from city centre. But if you like quiet atmosphere in very near city centre, here is your answer.
The food was very good both breakfast and the evening meals The room wasn't cleaned each morning.
It was a lovely Hotel, very central and the room we stayed in had a lovely view of the Loch. The staff were also very friendly
Nice views, car park I felt that because I booked online, and I paid less for the room, I felt that I received a sub standard room - no bath, noisy ground floor back room. Food was expensive!
Location easy access to the town centre. parking availability. Service good and staff friendly
Overall a fantastic experience! Homeowners were very friendly and kept their house very clean. I have stayed in many B&B's over the years and Avalon is at the top of my list. Location is just under a mile into town so we walked in. We would stay again
Staff was great, fOOD was great!!
My family stayed here for one night and found the rooms well appointed and clean. The owner was lovely and the breakfast was excellent. I would stay here again.
my room was superb [better than most 4 star hotels] the proprietor was excellent breakfast was ten out of ten
It was a comfortable and modern, well designed Guest House providing the facilities expected for the price range.
Excellent staff, room and breakfast.
