"Afternoon tea served perfectly.?"

5
User 26/05/2022

An afternoon tea/drinks with friends made even more special by the exceptional staff. Each team member we passed said “hello” but this didn't feel forced and Megan (I believe) was friendly and attentive all afternoon. We appreciated the fantastic service, lovely food and relaxed atmosphere. Also, our afternoon was very reasonably priced for such high quality. Thank you all.

"Excellent"

Manish29Gupta, Hyderabad, India 24/05/2022

From the time we checked in we completely loved this place. Smooth and warm check in with some lovely drinks offered, excellent concierge who gave us some fantastic tips in and around the city. The rooms are updated, fresh and very featured and comfortable. Breakfast is superb, so was dinner. I highly recommend the walk around the river and the bridges on the River Ness which is just around the hotel.

figo934, Caithness and Sutherland, United Kingdom 22/05/2022

Had a lovely afternoon tea here, great selection of sandwiches and sweets. Staff were all very welcoming on arrival and throughout our visit. Served by lovely Megan who was very friendly and charming. The hotel is beautiful and has a very relaxed atmosphere about it. Shame the hotel charges for parking but thankfully we got parked across the road.

My husband and I visited the Ness Walk for our honeymoon and it was an absolutely wonderful stay. The food, accommodations (particularly the comfortable bed!), and location were all wonderful and it was a truly relaxing experience. Our biggest acclaim however would go to the staff, who were always helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and fast. Lewis and James in particular were great and gave us perfect recommendations for where to go in Inverness based on what we were looking for. When my husband told he bar manager (I unfortunately cannot recall his name right now) our next destination, he gave us an alternate route through the highlands which might have been our favorite part of the trip. Ness Walk was a 10 for 10 in our books; we would absolutely visit again!

"Beautiful property with amazing service"

Havefuneatwell, Delaware 17/05/2022

We spent two nights at Ness Walk with a small group. The hotel is perfectly situated on the bank of River Ness and about a 10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants of Inverness. The property is beautiful, but the thing that stands out is the service. We had a very nice champagne welcome while waiting to check in. All the staff were friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Grace came outside to give us a message from our driver and also walked us to our room. Breakfast was excellent as was The Torrish restaurant for dinner. The only thing missing is a gym/pool/spa but maybe that's in the works? Overall a terrific stay.

"Fantastic overnight stay"

21allan1957, Brechin, United Kingdom 16/05/2022

Stayed overnight on 11th May at Ness Walk. From moment of arrival to check out we were looked after in a very welcoming and friendly manner. Have nothing but praise for this lovely hotel. The staff were impeccable, food lovely and room excellent. Can't wait to visit again.

"Luxury Stay on the River"

5
BrynMawrBK, Bryn Mawr, PA 15/05/2022

Ness Walk is a lovely small luxury hotel in a gorgeous quiet location along the western side of the River Ness. Staff was very welcoming and helpful at all times. Despite a slightly corporate feel to the bar area and hallways, overall the personal attention we received made the experience more intimate. The Wellintonia Suite at the top of the hotel was massive, with sleek contemporary furnishings and great skylight views of the town and grounds. It was a very easy walk to great restaurants just blocks away, and mere steps to the pedestrian bridge over the river. A really beautiful dining room with opulent table settings made a great breakfast even nicer. The temporary outdoor bar/restaurant on the front lawn provided a slight disconnect from the otherwise elegant appearance of the property, but it actually looked like fun and we were sorry we didn't have time to enjoy it. We will definitely stay at Ness Walk when next in Inverness.

"Best Experience"

nbcarden, Pea Ridge, Arkansas 13/05/2022

I have nothing but great things to say about our time here. From the moment we walked in we were treated so great. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Relaxing with champagne and then being escorted to our room, then to diner. Food for both dinner and breakfast were top of the line and fabulous. Our room was very comfortable and this is probably where we slept the best the entire trip. We were both so impressed with everything that we are planning on staying again on our trip this year.

"Absolutely fabulous"

Mary K, Fort William, Scotland, United Kingdom 13/05/2022

Checked in today for the weekend to celebrate The Husband's 65th birthday… a week early as we have a wedding next week .. fabulous service from the minute we arrived … champagne on arrival.. dinner absolutely fabulous.. cannot recommend highly enough… looking forward to breakfast and night two

It is a 5 stars hotel , very similar to any 4 seasons , Ritz Carlton rooms , restaurant , etc the biggest difference is their quality service which exceeds expectation .. their Staff is the biggest assets they have superior to any 5 Stars I stayed at

"Spring break"

Ehlucock, Shetland Islands, United Kingdom 11/05/2022

We have stayed here a few times now and never could fault anything before. Unfortunately the cold buffet breakfast is now self service a retrograde step in the current climate of Covid and not to a five star standard service. The staff were all wonderful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The standard of dining is excellent but personally I would prefer my food not covered in a flower garden. the chef is trying too hard. We shall be back in the future as overall a great stay

"Very modern, and yet charming hotel."

Bill H, Montreal, Canada 10/05/2022

Beautiful hotel, great room, great location right on the river, a short walk from the centre. A very pleasant stay overall. A gym would have been a nice amenity. The breakfast buffet was good, but not as good as we would have expected given the overall quality of the hotel itself.

"They thought of every detail!"

User 07/05/2022

I can not say enough good things about this hotel, they are AMAZING! From check in to check out, I was completely taken care of! Pros: - Staff is professional, warm, friendly, and helpful - Lobby, restaurant and rooms are sparkling clean - Food is delicious - Bed is comfortable, the high quality linens and pillows - Tasteful decor - Super fast wifi - Good water pressure and hot water - Full size bath and shower - Spacious rooms - Beautiful property as a whole - Perfectly situated by the water and walking distance from city center Cons: NONE!!

"Great luxurious stay!"

AlinaMichael, Rishon Lezion, Israel 07/05/2022

We loved our stay at Ness Walk! The hotel is beautiful with the nicest staff. Breakfast and dinner were delicious! There is a parking and you need to order in advance (15 pounds). The room was big and modern.

"5 Star experience"

Guide29814765515, Perth, United Kingdom 26/04/2022

5 star experience from the start. What a beautiful hotel with amazing staff who truly care about the business. Arriving at the private gate you are shown to your parking space then taken directly into the hotel where a complimentary glass of champagne is offered. The reception team was very informative and explained all about hotel and surroundings and then we were shown to our amazing room. Breakfast was excellent and the bar area lovely for a few drinks. The dinner was five star, Ronan and team couldn't have been nicer and catered for gluten free with ease. We will be back very soon and thank you for having us. Brian and Amy McKinlay

"Nothing special"

william z, Wrentham, Massachusetts 23/04/2022

While a very nice accommodation, it lacks that certain something to make it stand out. The rooms are comfortable and quiet but are just missing that special touch. The restaurant is adequate, but some dishes like the lamb were very mediocre and the wine list was OK. The service efficient and friendly. The real problem is one of price/performance, and this just wasn't up to it.

Craig Ewan, Other at Ness Walk Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest, I am sorry you did not feel our Ness Walk sparkle. This is something we work on very hard and try to deliver every guest expectation. If in Inverness please do try us again, as I am confident this was a one off. Kind Regards Craig Ewan Operations Director

"Brunch Summertide - overpriced disappointment"

1
User 22/04/2022

Bruach Summertide Bar - Inverness tries and fails to do high end (high price) street food. Firstly it was freezing cold - not at all adapted to Highland weather. They need more heaters, blankets and windbreakers. The service was average and relatively slow. Most disappointingly though the food was below average and overpriced. I know tonight was their opening night but this place has a long way to go if it wants to be the front end of a 5 star hotel. It's just a bit embarrassing and classic Inverness. We politely complained about one of the mains (steak fries) - the steak was horrible and fatty and most of it inedible. The chicken wings were soggy too. A half apology, no discount, no free drink… the chef audibly saying “there's nothing I can do about that”. Overall a big, overpriced disappointment. There are so many more restaurants and bars in Inverness to visit before coming here. Avoid.

"A great stay."

User 22/04/2022

Excellent from arrival to departure. First class service at every point of our stay. The room was fantastic, with scenic views out onto the River Ness. Great drink selection and bar staff very knowledgeable and happy to spend time talking you through the list.

User 18/04/2022

From the moment we arrived we were treated simply amazing, we stayed in room no 209 and it was spotless. Every single member of staff we came across was the best I have seen in hospitality, professionalism, and they all acknowledged you every time they saw us. This is a great 5 star luxury hotel in a lovely location with 7 star service. The breakfast was excellent. It was my first time in Inverness and I will be returning to this hotel again, by far the best service I have ever had and I'm not easy to please. Big thanks again.

Along with 2 friends I had a most enjoyable experience at Ness Walk Hotel recently. The welcome from Christina was warm and made us feel very special. We were superbly looked after by Zsolt in the lounge bar and by Marcus in the Dining Room. The ambience, service and food were all of the highest standard and could not be faulted. I highly recommend Ness Walk and will be returning soon

Colin F, Helensburgh, United Kingdom 13/04/2022

First class stay in the heart of Inverness. Welcomed with a glass of champagne and exceptional service throughout. Food was exquisite. Secure car park with gated entrance. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Rooms are very fresh with tasteful decor. Looking forward to returning…

"A Perfect stay"

Misti66, Isle of Man, United Kingdom 13/04/2022

We stayed here for one night before we started our NC500 trip. I wish we had stayed longer. Everything was absolutely perfect. From the moment we arrived until we checked out we were treated like superstars! The welcome was very warm and the complimentary glass of champagne was very much appreciated. Our room was wonderful, and absolutely spotlessly clean. We had everything we needed and the bed was really comfortable. The bar is nice with a fabulous range of drinks, and the staff very friendly. However the absolute highlight for us for the food! The quality, presentation and taste of everything we had was exceptional. The Raspberry Soufflé was truly to die for! Breakfast was also amazing. The chefs absolutely need awards! The only thing we didn't like was leaving. We will most definitely return. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

"Lovely relaxing stay"

afrl24, Dumfries and Galloway, United Kingdom 12/04/2022

Fantastic service. Beautiful hotel. Food was great. Lovely relaxing stay as we started our NC500 trip. We were greeted with complimentary champagne and mocktails which was a nice touch. Dinner in the Torrish restaurant was delicious- especially the desserts! Would highly recommend and will definitely return!

Second time at this great hotel and just as good. Everything from the food to the staff are first class but I must say, the staff when we were there on a friends trip went beyond all expectations and could not have been more helpful. The rooms are comfy and if you get one on the ground floor you have a lovely terrace to have breakfast or drinks on when the weather is good.

Mikey167, Glasgow, United Kingdom 01/04/2022

Beautiful hotel nestled on the banks of the river Ness, all the staff are first class, friendly, welcoming. Rooms are spotless, beds are super comfy and breakfast is good, we didn't dine in the restaurant as we had a booking elsewhere but have ate here on our last stay and the food was very good. It's the little touches that make this place, the greeting with a glass of champagne on arrival, the "welcome back" treats and chocolates in your room, the staff having a chat with you.

"Home away from home"

Michael C, Glasgow, United Kingdom 29/03/2022

We stayed here for one night on the 20th March. Much of what I would say has already been mentioned in the many other excellent reviews for this hotel and I do not wish to repeat these again. All the staff were really friendly and approachable. A special mention to a member of the concierge team (Csaba, I think his name was) and we got the impression that no job was too big for him. Breakfast was exceptional. The check-in process where a member of staff came to see you in the lounge area, whilst you had a glass of champagne was a brilliant touch. Next time we are in Inverness we will definitely look into staying at Ness Walk again.

User 28/03/2022

My husband and I had afternoon tea here on Monday, don't get me wrong the tea was excellent, the service great but…there was one other couple and ourselves, I believe the other two ladies were resident in the hotel and may have had a prior arrangement with the hotel but they were offered two glasses of champagne at the end of their tea, we were not. I appreciate there may have been extenuating circumstances I was unaware off but as we were seated near each other it was obvious they were getting the champagne for free. I know we were non residents but it should have been done much more discreetly. We felt our custom was less appreciated.

User 28/03/2022

From the moment we entered the River Ness; there was a very warm welcome from all staff. Staff very attentive, nothing was too much trouble. We had a delicious 3 course lunch. All food beautifully presented. We had steak: so tasty and cooked as asked. Puddings so yummy, and cheese and biscuits great selection. We had coffee in the lounge/bar, relaxing end to meal. Will definitely be back.

"Incredible meal and service"

MauveMM, Inverness, United Kingdom 21/03/2022

I had a meal at Ness Walk on Saturday night and both the meal and service was outstanding. Rarely have I had such fantastic food and service outside of a major city. The service was welcoming and attentive without being overbearing and the food was incredible. Beautifully presented and delicious from start to finish. The surroundings are stylish and the location absolutely perfect. Overlooking the river, close to Eden Court and the city centre but in a lovely quiet spot. I very much look forward to my next visit to Ness Walk.

Carole H, Tain, United Kingdom 20/03/2022

My daughter and I had an early evening meal here prior to a visit to Eden Court theatre located just along the road. The staff were lovely, friendly and welcoming and made sure our meal arrived without delay bearing in mind we had one eye on the clock. The dining room was comfortable with tables well spaced out and the food was excellent. I've been to Ness Walk before but it was a first for my daughter. The amuse-bouche was very tasty and the starters were fabulous. We enjoyed the main courses very much and decided on a dessert too, with an accompanying bottle of wine it wasn't an inexpensive meal but very much worth the money. You get what you pay for. Highly recommended - you shouldn't be disappointed. Thank you Ness Walk for a lovely start to our evening.

JH-23-45, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 12/03/2022

Night one of a two night stay - blown away by the service and friendliness of all the staff. Before we arrived received a courtesy pre-checkin call to arrange dinner. On arrival was greeted and directed into the lounge area and provide with a glass of champagne for my wife and I. The lovely lady on reception then came over with our key and completed the checking in formalities all while we were comfortably seated and relaxed. Once ready we were shown to our room personally and provide with details about the bar and breakfast. Dinner was fantastic and all the staff were so helpful and attentive. Looking forward to the rest of our stay!

Traveler29164435371, London, United Kingdom 12/03/2022

The best service I have received in the UK. Absolutely spotless - our room had everything you would need and more - impeccable linen and a lovely comfortable bed. Our pre dinner cocktails were very good and dinner was sublime. We arrived early for breakfast- the only minor negative of our stay - I would have preferred better bread, sausages and mushrooms to go with the home made marmalade to make our stay excellent to make our stay out- standing a good Bloody Mary or fizz option at breakfast as we weren't driving !! Would have cinched it as our best ever hotel stay !! Will we go back most definitely.

User 11/03/2022

I was hugely impressed with my stay and the team at Ness Walk. The whole experience began a few days before with Grace from reception taking the time to phone me and make sure everything was set for my visit. It felt like a warm and genuine phone call with a focus on putting the guest first and not just a "tick-box" exercise for the sake of doing it. The rooms itself was great and after a long day travelling it was exactly what I hoped it would be - clean, inviting and a fantastic shower! The team of staff at the hotel were excellent and really epitomised what "Highland Hospitality" is, in my opinion. From the front desk and the concierge to the duty manager taking time to talk to us during our breakfast, it was clear to see that the hotel is invested in going the extra mile for its guests. Looking forward to being back soon! An experience like no other in the Highlands

Thank you so much for your recent stay at Ness Walk. Your review reads, as if our marketing department were writing a promotional advert for the hotel.

markfE4930YG, Westhill, United Kingdom 08/03/2022

From the minute you arrive the experience is superb. Checking in whilst sitting with a glass of champagne is something I can sure get used to! We ate in the restaurant on the Saturday evening- Michelin Star quality in a relaxed setting, the meal was right up there with the best I've ever had. Staff are friendly and welcoming, go out of their way to make you feel special. For example- this was our second visit- the greeting on arrival was "welcome back!" It can sometimes be difficult for hotels to get 5* right- Ness Walk manages the quality without being in any way pretentious. Ideal location, 10 minute walk from the centre of Inverness. We'll be back!!

Just returned from a couple of nights staying at this amazing hotel. The staff are so welcoming, professional and engaging all the time. From driving into carpark, to welcome champagne, to the amazing and delicious dinner, afternoon tea and breakfasts, we were made to feel special by all the staff all the time. We stayed in a Laurel room and it was very quiet and luxurious with a beautiful bathroom. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend and will definitely be back soon. I would like to make a special mention to Marcus who in a group of amazing and outstanding staff always made time to speak to us and show interest in what we were doing for my birthday celebration. Thank you Ness Walk Hotel for a special birthday.

Gregalfa, Stirling, United Kingdom 04/03/2022

Always wanted to stay but “covid” hit. Arrived unannounced yesterday(hadn't booked). Hotel Manager met me in car park. After a complimentary Champers I was upgraded to their best “oak” room (127) at no extra charge. All of the staff were lovely. Genuinely lovely. Food? Belly pork nice starter if a bit “chewy”. Venison Wellington decadent. Not a pudding person but raspberry souffle washed down with a glass of Tokai lovely. Slept poorly but unrelated to lovely room that had bath/shower and separate loo. Breakfast perfect and not excessive in portion size. Will be back if they have me!

Never had we had such a polished, smooth, professional and friendly welcome. We said to each other before we even finished at check in that we would 100% be coming back. Never felt like that before.....amazing! Mark the concierge was the most thorough, professional, friendly we have ever come across, a real asset to the hotel. The room was delightful, well appointed and extremely clean. The restaurant service and food was amazing. The deconstructed lemon meringue was the best dessert I have ever had. The drinks made the Spanish bartender were amazing, a showman and very friendly, again a real asset to the hotel. We couldn't fault this fantastic hotel from start to finish. Becky and I cannot wait to return. Very well done to all of you. The Baileys

User 18/02/2022

Fantastic and well mannered service from start to finish. We booked in a Valentine dinner at the Torrish in Ness Walk and was blown away by the service we received. I have been in many hotels with a "5" star status before but never have i been served like Kimberly and her team in Ness Walk. They have a really nice culture going within the hotel that made us felt relax. The ambiance matches the event and they were all friendly, well trained and have an excellent people skill. Usually having different servers can be a downside but they all served us with the exact same mannerism. They tell you what is in your plate as they serve it in front of you, they give you plenty time to enjoy your food and have a chat before coming back to make sure everything is ok. Always making eye contact and very professional at what they do. The menu had plenty of choices but not too overwhelming, let's say it is not your typical "hotel menu", food was absolutely delicious and was served in a timely manner, credit to the chef. An incredible experience that we never thought we would experience in Inverness. Ness Walk lives up and beyond their 5 star expectation and will highly recommend to others.

Delighted you had a outstading experience at Ness Walk and really appreciate the detailed review on your dining experience in Torrish our fine dining restaurant.

She works very hard and trains her team continually to create a very smooth service. We want to deliver 5 star service with friendliness and kindness. We have all been in 5 star hotels where the service is so intense, that the experiece is not comfortable. Well done Kimberly and team. Kind Regards Craig Ewan Operations Director

We stayed two nights at Ness Walk and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the standard of accommodation was excellent, and all the staff were extremely helpful and very pleasant. There is some room for improvement. A few guests did not wear masks, a legal requirement at the time of our visit, we never saw any of these guests being asked to wear a mask. The food in general was excellent but if you do not like fish or seafood the menu is very restrictive, the chicken dish on our first evening was un-inspiring. We stayed in an oak room which was lovely but the sound proofing was not good, we could easily hear our loud talking neighbours Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

Craig Ewan, Other at Ness Walk Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest, I am glad overall you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your detail in your response. I will work through all of these and investigate. Since we have opened in 2019, I have never been aware of a sound insalation issue in any of our rooms. I look forward to hopefully welcoming you back in the future.

On our way North we experienced car trouble and limped into Inverness with a week's worth of food shopping and several bunches of flowers. On the recommendation of my Nephew we contacted Ness Walk in search of help and accommodation. Their response was breezy, accommodating and beyond helpful. A glass of champagne was thrust into our hands, the shopping was stored and the flowers put into water. Our room was beautiful, there was plenty of complimentary bottled water, it was incredibly clean and the area was really quiet overnight. The food in the restaurant was superb (including a very reasonably priced sumptuous Australian Shiraz) and every member of staff we met were brilliantly cheerful. We will be back!

2 night stay in an Oak room with views to the River Ness & garden courtyard. Well equipped room with all facilities you could want in a 5 star Hotel. At check in we mere met by Grace to be introduced to the Hotel facilities + a glass of champagne after a long journey. Friendly and helpful during our 2 night stay. The restaurant was very good with both my wife and I being fish eaters I had halibut and my wife had the hake . Both had delicious accompaniments which showed the chef had a good touch with his cuisine. Lewis & Kim who ran the floor were proficient as well as friendly. We had some vintage white with the fish which was not overpriced. Great experience and will be back in 2022. The only issue I have is to be charged for parking in such an establishment @ £15 per night when the Hotel control the entry & exit of guests & we were staying in a premium price room

I can't begin to say how wonderful a stay we had at the Ness Walk. From the incredible reception on arrival by an absolutely phenomenal front of house team to a stunning meal at night, this will be our go to getaway for the Northern Highlands. A truly Scottish welcome! The bedrooms were beautifully appointed and the views onto the River Ness just topped it all off!

I was one of a party of six that stayed at Ness Walk Hotel on Saturday night. Everything was beyond expectations. We were politely welcomed at the Car Park and had the best customer service throughout our entire stay here. The reception team were friendly and professional and assisted in every way they could. The room was immaculate and spacious, we all had a comfortable night's sleep. We all dined here in the evening and were pleased with everything from the efficient service to the quality, taste and presentation of all meals served and then again for breakfast the next day. There are options on the menu to suit all special dieatry requirements. We have all reccommended Ness Walk Hotel to friends and family since our stay and we all look forward to staying and dining here again. The hotel and setting is beautiful.

The front of house staff here are outstanding, a warm and professional welcome makes you relaxed from the moment you arrive and throughout your stay a huge thank you to Stephen and the team.

Stayed at this wonderful hotel for 2 nights just after the New Year. From arrival when we were greeted buy a very friendly concierge who after collecting our luggage from the car immediately brought us champagne. He escorted us to our room explaining all the hotels facilities on the way. We had upgraded our room to a Cedar King which was absolutely gorgeous. Huge bathroom with a separate toilet. Patio doors out to our own terrace which in better weather would have been fabulous. We dined in the hotel's restaurant on both nights. Food was if the highest quality as was breakfast on both days but I must say the highlight of the whole stay was the staff. Everyone so friendly and looked after us so well. Made our stay extra special. Thank you. We are already planning our return visit.

SVKB, London, United Kingdom 06/01/2022

Gorgeous hotel in Inverness, about a 15 minute walk along the riverbank from the city centre. The staff were wonderfully welcoming, and very attentive, with a welcome drink upon arrival whilst we waited for our room to be ready. Room was beautiful, wonderfully cleaned (with a sticker on the door to indicate that it had been done and so no one else could enter, which was a good C9 touch I hope all hotels keep in place!). Opted for a Double Room with Garden View with a river/garden view. Very large room, huge marble bathroom, so comfy. Dinner: One of the best meals, truly brilliant kitchen team, every course was considered, and they must have some sold pastry chef's on their team because usually I am disappointed by the dessert course, but they really nailed it. I could have eaten here again and again (but sadly was only staying one night!). Breakfast: Good choice, lovely food, they had milk alternatives which is important, and overall an enjoyable start to the day/

Myself and my friend attended for a fabulous Afternoon Tea at Ness Walk recently prior to having our little babies. From the wonderfully warm welcome, to the attentive table service, we were made to feel so welcome. The food was lovely, special attention given to even the smallest of details. We were given delicious ‘mocktails' to celebrate and looked after so well. We particularly enjoyed looking out onto a crisp winter garden and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a special treat.

We had a great experience at Ness Walk. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean, and the staff were welcoming and attentive. The hotel is located roughly a 10 minute walk from the city centre, with plenty of pubs and restaurants a short distance away, so location is very good. The only time we ate in the hotel was for breakfast. The breakfast options aren't as extensive as other hotels we have visited but it was of high quality. Would recommend this hotel when staying in Inverness.

Just having my final breakfast after the most wonderful stay at Ness Walk over the festive period. This hotel seriously has the WOW factor! I checked into a room in the first floor which overlooked the trees- almost felt like you were in the trees which was so peaceful. The bedrooms are large and spacious, and the attention to detail really gives a feeling of luxury. Within checkin and room my favourite features were the glass of champagne of on arrival, the arran aromatics toiletries, the illy coffee machine with fresh milk, the deep bath and the huge comfy bed! The staff couldn't have been more helpful- no ask was too big. The service truly was exquisite and genuinely felt they were so interested and invested in making a memorable guest experience. Last but not least- the food!!! So delicious! I dined a number of times o we the stay- my favourites were the scallops, the salmon and the fillet of beef. I only managed to take one picture but presentation standard was high. The chef is clearly talented and creative! I would highly recommend coming to Ness Walk for a stay anytime of the year- will definitely be back! Thank you Ness Walk! ❤️

User 26/12/2021

My partner and I spent Christmas and Boxing Day weekend at the Ness Walk. From the moment we arrived, the staff treated us like royalty, first welcoming us with a sit down and a glass of Champagne. Then we were guided to our very comfortable and well apportioned room in the Laurel wing. Host, Steve, was especially keen to provide a personal touch to our stay. While we were there the hospitality staff and concierge services assisted us with electrical adapters, de-icing our windshield, using the royal post, printing, and arranging taxis. The breakfasts and dinners were exceptionally prepared and presented with incredible service. Everything is well timed and focused on providing the best experience for the guests. Breakfast includes a buffet as well as a menu of prepared Scottish breakfasts. Additionally the hotel is situated on a quiet street adjacent to the Ness River and is a beautiful ten minute walk to city center. I would highly recommend this stay to anyone who needs a moment to be carefree and cared for.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Ness Walk in the run up to Christmas 2021. The location of the hotel is excellent, placing us near to all of the sites in Inverness and being right next to the river too, with various walks and parks nearby. We received a warm reception from the hotel when we arrived and all of the staff were extremely friendly and polite whenever we encountered them, ranging from concierge, to waiting staff, and cleaning staff. Our room was well-appointed and felt brand new with modern, comfortable furnishings. The hotel was generally a very pleasant and cosy place to be, with a feeling of luxury. It was great to see that the TV in our room had Sky installed and also the ability to stream other services via the built-in Chromecast - why don't more hotels offer this, instead of the usual meagre channel offerings. Bonus points from me! It was also a useful touch to have the toilet accessible via a separate door from the bathroom / shower, so that both could be used by different people at the same time if required. The WiFi was free and worked well for us, allowing us to stream content from our phone to the TV. There was plenty of parking available, although we had travelled by train on this occasion. We had dinner in the hotel on one night of our stay and the food was excellent, catering for our vegetarian and vegan options. Once again, the waiting staff were friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed a few cocktails whilst we there (it would be rude not to), and the bar staff were very helpful too. We had breakfast in the mornings and this was great, with a range of options available. We did our check-in and check-out online and this was easy and effective, prompted by useful emails and instructions from the hotel too. Overall, we had a lovely, relaxing stay and we fully intend to visit the Ness Walk again in the future.

kirker, Austin, Texas 15/12/2021

As a former professional hotel critic, it's safe to say I'm difficult to impress, but the Ness Walk did so in spades. I'd even go so far as to rank it in my top-three favorite hotels in Scotland! I only spent a single night there – after landing in Inverness en route to a drive along the NC500 – but every single aspect of the hotel's service was utterly flawless. The champagne upon arrival made for a fantastic first impression – especially following an unusually trying journey during these pandemic times – and the caliber of the hotel's accommodations is very legitimately five-star. My room was beautifully designed, with an incredibly comfortable bed & superb linens. I had both dinner & breakfast there as well, and both were wonderful; I particularly appreciated the emphasis on locally sourced foods, knowing the extent to which the pandemic has deleteriously affected global tourism. In what was definitely a first during my many years of travels, upon departure I discovered that they had washed my car – without me even requesting it! I apparently parked in a portion of the car park where birds sometimes congregate in the trees above, and my rental car received a fair amount of droppings from them. While washing my car wasn't at all necessary – the torrential rain I encountered the next day would've cleaned all of the droppings off regardless – it merely exemplifies the property's unequivocally outstanding caliber of service. Finally, I was surprised to receive this caliber of service for such a competitive nightly rate. While I admittedly visited in off-peak mid-December, it was still a remarkable bargain given the all-around quality of my stay. I had only a few quibbles with the place, none remotely important enough for me not to give it five stars. First, the property charges £15 per night for use of its car park. While it's admittedly on the small side, it's also well outside of the city centre – and also the only time I've been charged for on-site parking anywhere in Scotland outside of the likes of Edinburgh – and came off as a bit much. In a similar vein, the hotel has an excessively detailed list of individualised charges noted in each, up to & including one for the "do not disturb" door placard. Finally, I was slightly irked upon departure to discover that I'd been charged for a morning newspaper. Upon arrival I was asked if I wanted one the next day, and very much unlike the highly specific charges noted elsewhere, there was no mention that I'd be charged for it. Had I known, I would've declined; while I'm an old-school type who still prefers reading print newspapers, I already have a subscription to The Guardian's website, and would've read it on my iPad instead. (OTOH it was a mere two quid, so I certainly wouldn't have complained about it at checkout.) Altogether this all came off as a bit too much nickel-and-diming, as we'd say in America, and atypical vis-a-vis other five-stars in the UK. But, again, those are all trivial quibbles. I've stayed at other properties in & around Inverness, and the Ness Walk is hands down the best of the bunch (if anything I'm surprised it isn't the highest-rated Inverness hotel on this site). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Dear Guest, Really appreciate your recent business and I am delighted we have another Ness Walk ambassador out there flying our flag. I appreciate the detailed feedback and great to see you have rated us 5 out of 5 stars. Coming from a previous hotel critic this holds great gravitas. I note your comments regarding the exceptionaly good value, room rate. I also not your comments regarding the charges for the car park and the newspaper. Our thoughts on this are we are only charging the guest for what service they have used. The newspaper example also fits in with our new green policy, as we plan our way towards trying to achieve a carbon neterual business. In previous hotels when I have offered complimentry newspapers there has been tremendous waste. I take on board your feedback that we need to be clearer in communicating these charges to the guest in advance of ordering. Thank you again, and I look forward to welcoming you back again.

"Not quite a 5*"

pinkwindsor2015, Scotland, United Kingdom 15/12/2021

On arrival, we were forced to walk through a big group of smokers from a wedding party who were congregated around the entrance, which really wasn't pleasant especially as my husband has cancer. No-one met us until we had walked through the door and once we were given champagne, the smoke wafted through the door and spoilt what would have been a lovely experience as we could smell it very strongly. Our room (No 105) was fine, but it always had a housekeeping trolley near to it and the next morning, we were greeted by 5-6 of them parked nearby. Our room was also next to the lift and stairway so wedding guests woke us up a couple of times when they went to their rooms. I'm not too sure why we had been allocated that room but I felt that I couldn't say anything as our room had been secured with the cleanliness tape. There were a few hiccups at breakfast, no milk for our tea, no knives for our ordered breakfast, our ordered breakfasts were bought out when our dirty buffet plates hadn't been cleared away. All these details should be of 5* service but sadly, they didn't quite make it. Sadly, my husband and I left feeling undervalued and disappointed.

We recently enjoyed a lovely two night stay at Ness Walk. We had heard great things about the hotel from friends and from the start the were not disappointed… The attentiveness of the staff was excellent throughout our stay, starting with Steve the concierge welcoming us with a complimentary glass champagne! Lovely spacious rooms and delicious food in Torrish, again with very high standards of service. On the second night we enjoyed some delicious cocktails in Bruach Wintertide - a stunning winter wonderland created within the grounds. Highly recommend!

This Hotel is absolutley lovely in all aspects! Very warm welcome and we had a lovely glass of champagne while we sat in the lounge and were checked in. When we were ready, we were shown to our room where there was a sealed sanitised sticker on the door. The concierge showed us around our room and where everything was. The room was immaculate, clean, tidy and had everything we needed with a few extras that were a nice touch. The grounds are lovely and very well maintained. The whole Hotel is immaculate, tidy, clean and very well kept. The staff are incredible, nothing was too much of an ask and they are all very well presented and very friendly. All the staff were brilliant but a special mention to Duncan in the restaurant who went out of his way to accommodate us and made time to talk to us each time. He even convinced my husband to try haggis! The bar area was very cosy and the bar staff were fun to watch making all of the drinks. There was a nice elegance to the bar and the Hotel itself. Its situated in a very convenient location, 15 minutes walk to the town centre and to Ness Islands and the Bontanic gardens. Its far enough away to avoid the noise but close enough you can walk to everything. There isn't anything negative i can say about this Hotel, everything was just brilliant. We will be back for another visit...just in a bit warmer weather! I would 100% recommend this Hotel, it may cost more than a standard hotel but its worth every extra penny!

Well managed nice hotel which tries hard to make your stay comfortable. The hotel has a bit of an awkward layout and you must trek to your room.

We had a lovely view of the courtyard and the river which even the rain didn't spoil though the umbrella provided came in very useful. We had dinner in the hotel before going to the theatre and it was exceptional. If we hadn't been heading out we would definitely have had 3 courses. We certainly hope to return soon

Frank M, Rochester, Minnesota 21/11/2021

Runaway, don't walk to Ness Walk. The lack of some services and good parking took the luster off of our stay along with the price not matter what Conde Nast says. While concierge service and some restaurant services were exceptional, housekeeping and laundry were NOT. Do NOT have laundry done here. I sent over $150 worth of clothing to be laundered only to have some pieces missing and the white closing turned GREY! Management was so kind in explaining that this was one of their vendors and never had any trouble with them. The sent the the white color back to be redone and it still came back GREY and never found the other clothing. For all of this, I received $13 in credit. A slap in my face.

Dear Guest, I so sorry that you have left the hotel dissapointed, this is never our intention. I will investigate this situation as a matter of urgency this morning. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 20.42 I have investigated this today, unfortunately your stay was just over 5 weeks ago. Angus MacLeod our Deputy Manager was sorry that you left dissapointed. He personally spoke to yourself at the time and thought he had resolved. Unfortunately the items which were sent to the laundry were not marked down on the laundry slip with the bag provided, this caused confusion at the laundry and I believe this is where you socks became mixed up with another guest's laundry. Angus also sent back your white socks for a second time and asked the laundry to rewash, which they did, however I now undrstand were not to your satisfaction. I apologise again that you were not happy with this element of your stay. Yours sincerely Craig Ewan Operations Director

Spent a wonderful few days at Ness Walk in one of the Oak Rooms A welcome glass of Champagne whilst our luggage was taken to our room was a 5 star touch We managed to sneak a hot punch in the Bruach tent before we headed along the river The Torrish restaurant in the evening provided tasty Scottish cuisine with a twist & had a lively atmosphere. Breakfast had a lovely selection of hot freshly cooked food as well as a Continental buffet. The Rocpool restaurant just a short walk along the river was also very good Hotel staff were courteous & friendly & can't wait to return

We got engaged during our stay at Ness Walk and it was perfect ❤️ The hotel is beautiful and staff are always on hand to greet you with a smile and happy to help. Food and drinks are excellent and the glass of champagne on arrival is a lovely touch. We stayed in room 131 on the first floor overlooking the courtyard and river. Absolutely deserving of its 5 stars! We look forward to visiting you again!

FIRSTLY ! I don't ever feel the urge after a stay away from home to write any review either positive or negative but in this case I just could not ignore the urge to give praise where praise is rightfully due. From the welcome at the main door on arrival from Mark and Steve we were completely put at ease. Such a warm welcome thank you !! Hotel is immaculate, our room was lovely, cocktails divine and a relaxed dining experience. We will be returning very soon !! I MUST say a massive thank you to Steve for taking the time and going out of his way to make sure all our multiple questions were answered. He could not do enough for us and made the whole stay such an enjoyable experience and has made Ness Walk our number 1 go to hotel!! Well worth the drive for us. See you very, very soon .

Following our recent two night stay we highly recommend this hotel. Despite the pouring rain outside a very warm welcome was extended to us together with a complimentary glass of bubbly. Customer service and attention to detail was evident throughout. Excellent accommodation, food and location. We would highly recommend this hotel.

We recently spent a night at the amazing Ness Walk. We couldn't fault our stay. An excellent location only minutes from the city centre but set in a beautiful location overlooking the river ness. The service was exemplary from the moment we arrived. Every single detail has been thought about in order to make you very comfortable. Our room was very comfortable with everything you could need for your stay. Food and drinks were excellent. Breakfast, in particular, was a standout for us. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering a stay in Inverness. We can't wait to go back.

The hotel has a high standard to live up to and it certainly did. Nice touch with the champagne welcome starting our visit. Breakfast choices were excellent with buffet and inventive cooked options. Room was spotless and very comfortable. The location by the river gives a very relaxed feel to the hotel. Also thanks to the staff who were all very friendly and efficient and hit the balance between being professional and relaxed very well.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to attend a fantastic wine dinner at the impeccable Ness Walk Hotel recently. We were treated superbly well throughout the evening and the food was absolutely first class. We waited for our taxi with a cognac in the front room and could have stayed for the rest of the evening!! All in all a tremendous experience and we look forward to returning.

A fabulous hotel in Inverness. Great location overlooking the river. We received a wonderful warm welcome on our arrival along with a welcome glass of champagne. A special mention to the excellent concierge, Stephen and also to Grace on reception who was particularly helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Beautiful rooms, delicious food, fabulous atmosphere. Would highly recommend and hope to come back one day soon.

The service was excellent from the second we arrived, all of the staff were amazing and very friendly. We were given a very warm welcome from the excellent concierge, Mark, who gave us an overview of the hotel and when we were ready, he showed us to our room. The welcome champagne when we arrived and the chance to pre select our wine for dinner was a lovely touch. Our Oak Room was beautiful, with all the finishing touches that you would expect from a 5 star hotel, and very well appointed. We tried the Halloween special cocktails as our pre-dinner drinks, they were brilliantly prepared and served by Zsolt, Bar Manager. Dinner was delicious - the food is superb and the service to match, led by the very talented Ronan and Marcus. A nightcap in the bar area after dinner was a treat, in a lovely relaxing atmosphere. Sadly, we had an early start so missed out on breakfast, but it looked great...next time! Thanks Team Ness Walk, a gem in the Highlands.

Fantastic hotel with equally fantastic staff. Welcome glass of champagne on arrival with brief overview of hotel and then to our room, which was fabulous. We enjoyed every time we walked into the room to the very special view. Breakfast was delicious with selection of continental to start followed by your choice of hot selection, the eggs benedict were delicious. Enjoyed having a drink at the bar before dinner and again the bar staff were fantastic a real credit to the hotel. We will be back ☺️

This new hotel is outstanding in every respect. It's stylishly decorated. The accommodation is comfortable and inviting. The staff is helpful, professional and capable. The food is among the best through our trip. The chef is talented and creative, but does not over-engineer the use of high quality ingredients. I appreciate that - food is tasty and beautifully presented. It's a five star experience!

We arrived after a long journey and were greeted by Marcus in the car park. Shown to Lounge with a comp glass of fizz (very nice welcome|) and Grace checked us in. Room was lovely, view not but quiet enough. Complementary water and a fresh coffee machine are a bonus as was the robes and slippers. The veluxe windows were not the easiest to open and we were not shown how they worked on arrival. We had an issue with the bedding as it was dirty. They acknowledged this and sent a bottle of fizz which was a lovely gesture. Bed nice and comfortable Lovely bath products and a decent hairdryer. Breakfast was delicious and plenty to choose from as we were here for 3 nights it was good to sample some off the menu. Staff are very friendly and happy to help. Carparking is gated and £15 daily Its a good 15 mins to the centre but the walk by the river more than makes up for it.

User 27/10/2021

A visit for afternoon tea that was truly spectacular. From our arrival and greeting from Mark, to our experience during the most exquisite afternoon tea, the Ness walk hotel was a wonderful place to enjoy the perfect afternoon. Amy looked after us so well throughout our visit, making sure we had everything we needed and explaining the menu perfectly. She chatted about the history of the hotel, kept us topped up with tea/coffee and even arranged for us to have a look at one of the hotel rooms. Angus gave us a mini tour of one of the beautiful garden rooms as well as the private function room-both of which were superb. We cannot thank the hotel staff enough and would highly recommend a visit here. The outside bar/cocktail area looked amazing. We will definitely be back.

"A Real Pleasure"

User 27/10/2021

This was our first visit to the hotel and it turned out to be a real pleasure. A great location overlooking the river and yet peaceful being away from the city centre. We stayed for five nights and the hotel is situated well for touring about, whether on foot locally or further afield by car. The facilities are excellent and very clean, which is reassuring at this time. The room was large with good quality furnishings plus bathroom and separate toilet all en-suite. Food was brilliant with an outstanding breakfast and a good selection of evening dinner choices. The bar has a great selection of drinks and also has an outside feature tent at weekends. In our opinion, this is one of the best hotels in Scotland for comfort and enjoyment, which is complimented by the outstanding team who are so welcoming, caring and focus on every attention to detail. We will be back.

Ken M, Wadhurst 19/10/2021

Stayed here as part of our anniversary trip to Scotland and was very pleased with the hotel and the staff - excellent. We were on the ground floor and had a small "patio" area outside the door from our room - although it was too wet to use, but that's not the fault of the hotel lol. All the staff were absolutely wonderful - so friendly and helpful - really did help to make our trip that much more enjoyable. Our room did have a bath and a shower. We also had afternoon tea here and it was really lovely - I'd thoroughly recommend it. They also do some wonderful cocktails - always a bonus for me. The restaurant food is wonderful too.

What a fantastic start to our bucket list tour of the Highlands. We were greeted by Mark and Kirsten who made us feel most welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Our two night stay was amazing with impeccable service, food and welcome. The only downside is that we had not booked more nights. We will definitely be returning. A big thank you Ness Walk to all your hard working staff who made our stay feel so special. We highly recommend The Ness Walk Hotel to anyone planning a visit to the Highlands.

Shannon G, Inverness, United Kingdom 16/10/2021

If you're looking for 5* quality and treatment then this is the hotel for you. We stayed here on our wedding night and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated with top class service. On arrival we organised breakfast in bed for the morning and it arrived promptly at 8am as promised and Csaba who served it, was nothing short of fantastic, so polite and couldn't do more for us if he tried. The room was spectacular with a view of the beautiful gardens with the most comfortable bed and the extra touches such as a proper coffee machine and sky TV make all the difference. I can guarantee that a stay in this hotel wont disappoint and you'll leave feeling like VIPs.

"Amazing Autumn Break in Inverness"

Mitch59, Angus, United Kingdom 14/10/2021

I booked the 'Autumn Cocooning Break' which included a two night stay, breakfast each day with Afternoon Tea one day and Dinner one evening. This was really good value and we really enjoyed our time in Inverness. I checked in online prior to arrival, so this made everything so easy. Arriving at Ness Walk, we were greeted and shown to a car parking space. After parking the car, my wife and I were taken through to the lounge and served a lovely glass of chilled champagne and asked to relax and take our time . . . an excellent touch and a great way to start our break. Once our champagne was finished, we were shown to our room (a Laurel Room) which was lovely, clean, comfortable and included a mini bar and pod style coffee machine. We chose to have our Afternoon Tea on Saturday and this was excellent, two different cake stands, one savoury the other sweet and the offerings were tasty and perfectly accompanied by loose leaf tea of your choice or speciality coffee if you prefer. Sunday evening was Dinner in the Torrish Restaurant. The food was superb and the choice of wine outstanding. Although the package included dinner, we found two courses were more than enough. The service was very attentive without being overpowering. My wife and I had a very enjoyable evening. Breakfast choice each day was also very good and we found everything we wanted and another fuss free and relaxing meal, Our stay was very relaxing and being so close to the city centre, we were able to walk every where which was a delight. We also wandered away from the hotel on Sunday morning after breakfast and crossed at the Ness Islands and came down the other side of the river into town. I can't praise the hotel facilities, friendly staff and location highly enough. If you fancy a quality break in Inverness, then look no further than Ness Walk.
