If you want the 5 Star Experience in Inverness, UK while you're touring the Lochness Lake/ Highlands there's only one place to stay which is Kingsmills Hotel. The Hotel has a majestic castle feel from the minute you approach the front doors. You almost wonder if you need knighthood or if only nobles are welcomed as you go through the lobby and see Scottish History everywhere. On the way up to the room I would take the stairs as the lifts seemed a little to renaissance for me but that's what made the experience so wicked. Upon arriving to my room was just posh. It felt like a very luxurious flat with double doors welcoming me into a California King Bed, yes you heard right a California King Bed. The view was just amazing from the room as I felt as if I were looking at my minions below in the court yard from high above the castle walls.
I stayed here for 5 days (May 5th-10) and it was a wonderful stay. The weather was surprisingly nice so we were able to walk to town where there were plenty of restaurants and shopping. One day I also walked to a Tescos to stock up on waters etc.
We were in a room across from the new structure they were building and there was a lot of hammering and such going on but not till around 10am. Its to be expected I guess since they are trying to expand.
The room itself was very nice. Clean and spacious. Had afternoon tea in the dining room and it was wonderful.
I really liked this hotel. We were in the older part of the hotel, but the room was still very nice. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The food at the hotel was great. Authentic, well prepared and original.
It is well located with only a 10 minute walk to downtown.
They have a paid internet, but the use time is not consecutive. You can buy a 24 hour data pass and have it last you the entire week.
The conference rooms were well prepared and stocked with coffee and tea at regular intervals. Its a great place to hold a meeting.
I stayed here recently for an 80th birthday celebration and it was the perfect venue for such an event. The staff are warm and welcoming and ready to please and the rooms are large and comfortable. The bar area is large and attractive and the breakfast in the mornings is plentiful. The birthday celebration itself was in the large Burns room which was well laid out and the food served was very good. If I were to visit the area again I would want to stay here purely for comfort and I would definitely recommend.
The hotel, room and grounds were very pretty and well maintained. The dinner menu in the open dining area was very pricey, 30 USD for a bland steak, chips served in a mini fryer (at a nice restaurant a steak should NEVER come with chips), onion rings and a salad that tasted like it was tossed in perfume.... Not good at all. Our room had a dead bug in the bathroom (gross), and the "king size" bed was 2 twins that were pushed together, and started to slide apart if you got too close to the crack. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was very nice, maybe it was just a fluke that we got gross steaks?
This is a lovely hotel with a homely feel in the Culcabock area of Inverness. It is relatively close to amenities and the town centre is only a couple of minutes away by car or is in walking distance if you fancy a walk. The hotel has a lovely feel to it and the staff are all brilliant and will help in any way that they can. The rooms are furnished to a high standard and there are different types of rooms to choose from, including standard, family, garden and executive rooms. The garden rooms face out onto the small golf course which is at the back of the hotel. They are lovely peaceful rooms with a nice outlook. There is a leisure complex with good sided swimming pool and jacuzzi. The meals are lovely and there is a bar area where you can relax with a pre dinner drink or two. There is also a conservatory where they serve lunches. They also have a hair dressing salon on site. This is a fabulous hotel and one I would certainly recommend.
