Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by colross Not a very good sleep this time.
I arrived to find the heating full on in the room and judging by the smell it was to dry the paint, the fumes were still pretty strong. I was going to ask for another room but I remembered that it was full when booking online. There were no rubbish bins in the room or the toilet and the staff could not find any, they provided us with a plastic bag for our rubbish. The fumes did not make for a good nights sleep and gave me a sore throat.
It’s been about 2 to 3 years since we stayed here and the breakfast area has had a makeover. The three things that I did pick up on the breakfast cereal were left in open bowels for self-service, that’s not very hygienic with people sneezing over it now cold season is here. Other Express Inn’s have individual sealed packets.
The quality of the scrambled eggs was not very good in looks or teats in comparison to the Perth Express Inn. They should get their recipe.
Where has all the trays gone? My thoughts are that some clever person has thought that if people have to walk more and carry less then they will have less of which is a complementary breakfast.

Staying here gives you everything you would expect. However, our stay was spoiled by the rudeness of the receptionist on duty when my wife tried to obtain a toothbrush as she had forgotten hers. This receptionist ignored her and continued to chat with another member of staff for such a time that my wife gave up and walked away.

Always nice to stay in this convenient and good balue hotel. Rooms remain in good condition despite heavy use by full house occupancy at this hotel. Decorators were at the hotel and our rooms bathroom needed a ceiling repaint due perhaps to emulsion paint being susceptible to moisture from the excellent shower. No doubt this will have been attended to as part of the regular maintenance which is underway. Breakfast offerings are more than adequate and better than other competitors in this sort of hotel. Reception welcome was very professional. Thank you, we will be back whenever in Inverness overnight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RJ28 Warm, clean and good breakfast.
Always come here for excellent value for money. Can't see past it really. Only fault was the rather loud noise when the toilet was flushed. Drains need looking at. And the shower was not very powerful. But that will not stop me from returning.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CV76 OK hotel, well located.
Stayed here on a Saturday night whilst having a weekend in the highlands. Check in was almost laughable allocating the room with a window right beside the main door (room 016) whilst (so it turned out) putting a coach party in the quieter rooms (I can only assume they too had Platinum status), took 2 attempts to get a quieter room which was worth the hassle as the coach party were away quite early the next morning and I imagine the original room would have got to hear all the noise (they had a lot of luggage!).
Room itself was ok, standard no frills functionality (nice new flatscreen TV though), shower room (no bath) was clean although the paint was badly peeling off the ceiling above shower. Breakfast was well done, although no bacon, and the breakfast area was much bigger than in most Expresses which made it a much more relaxing environment. Hotel is well located beside dual carriageway for travelling onwards in all directions. The pub across the car park was very enjoyable, nice atmosphere and food.

All good, can't fault the hotel, or the adjoining pub for food. Free WiFi in the pub too.
