Details

Welcome to the Royal Highland Hotel Inverness, one of the most famous and best loved hotels in Scotland!

The Royal Highland Hotel is the oldest hotel in the centre of the Highland capital, Inverness. In 2000, the property was carefully restored, retaining its unique character associated with the bygone age. As soon as you enter the hotel you will appreciate this. In the foyer the grand staircase, the inspiration for the Titanic's staircase, leads to the 84 spacious refurbished bedrooms - all with very high ceilings. The decor is rich with traditional furniture and deep colours. The rooms all have soft furnishings and antique style furniture. The excellent bathrooms are generally medium to large in size.

For over 161 years, the hotel has been looking after travellers from all over the world. Perhaps its popularity stems from the fact the hotel is a grand place to stay. Large bedrooms, large lounge areas, quiet meeting rooms, good food, prime location and friendly staff all play their part. All local amenities close to hand, but within a 5 minute drive you are out into the dramatic Highlands. Loch Ness is only 7 miles from the hotel.

Bedrooms:
Expect and enjoy 84 meticulously clean, cared for, spacious quiet bedrooms. The rooms have been tastefully contemporised whilst retaining their unmistakeably traditional feel. Pleasantly 'old fashioned', yet unobtrusively modern, thoughtfully appointed, offering a classical ambience, yet with every contemporary comfort, including bathroom, satellite television and direct dial telephones and even a choice of pillows.

Restaurant & Bar & Café:
Ash is our new cafe/bar/restaurant situated right in the heart of Inverness city within the Royal Highland Hotel. Done out in rich cherry wood and taupe colours it is the place to be seen. Ash is where you come to enjoy good food with an even greater atmosphere and superb prices. The restaurant has something to offer for everyone with a wide variety on the menu with over 100 choices for you to choose from, whether traditional Scottish cuisine or something a little more exotic, from Paninis to steaks.

Gallery Cafe:
To the right of the spacious lobby and grand staircase is the Gallery café. Ideal for those mainly wanting a lighter bite or snack, although an extensive menu does cater for more substantial meals too as a relaxing alternative in a completely different and more classical ambience to that of the more contemporary, chic Ash Restaurant.

The Grand Wallace ballroom / the Royal Magnus meeting room:
For smaller conferences and events, the Grand Ballroom is perfectly complemented by the smaller, yet very comfortable and spacious Royal Magnus Room. Perfect for that more mid-sized conference or training event for up to 50 people. Or for smaller celebrations, weddings and dinners where perhaps a more intimate atmosphere than that of the Wallace Ballroom is required.

Full business and secretarial services are available, as well as a full conference/meeting catering service - and there is a small bar adjacent to the room.
