The Waterside Hotel offers a warm welcome with ‘Highland Hospitality’ and it is only 3 minutes’ walk from Inverness city centre. Providing an excellent base for your stay in The Highlands it is ideally situated for day trips to the surrounding areas and The North. The hotel is beautifully located on the south bank of the River Ness. It is a family owned and professionally run property where the management and staff will ensure all of your requirements are catered for and will help to plan your stay in Inverness.

The conservatory showcases one of the most attractively situated restaurants in Inverness ‘RefleXions’ with candlelit tables and views of the River Ness as standard, serving innovative food with traditional heritage. The Head Chef Lara McLeod and her team believe that everyone should enjoy good food at RefleXions which is why she sources the best local ingredients and freshly prepares the dishes with care and imagination.

“Lovely hotel” Stayed here for 2 nights after booking on Laterooms.. had a lovely stay. Very clean bedrooms and ensuites. Ensuite has a large shower which was a pleasure. Dinner on both nights was excellent. The hotel is located in a beautiful part of Inverness overlooking the river and less than a 5 min walk to the city centre. Handy also for guests with cars as it has a residents car park at the rear of the hotel. Staff were pleasant and friendly. (Isle of Lewis)

“Ticked all the boxes.” The Waterside is a very pleasant warm and welcoming hotel, Lovely outlook to the River Ness from the dining room. The dining experience ?was very satisfying, good menu choices, quality fresh food, beautifully prepared and presented.
