    The location was great food and service great and pool was fab.

    Only thing did not like was on 4th floor and lift was broke

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Jacuzzi

    No fresh fruit at breakfast. (Tinned/dried) This doesn't compare well with other hotels we have used and we do not usually pay as much in other hotels.

  • Group of friends
    5.8

    Insufficient parking, poor dining area and bar facilities. Expensive for the quality of hotel room

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    very nice pool area - can enjoy a good swim as pool is of a reasonable size - also the river facing bedrooms have a lovely view

    breakfast was average at best - also hotel has large coach parties staying , so choose your breakfast time to avoid the crush - bar area not very inviting as bright lights & cheap canteen style furniture

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    The spa facility was much appreciated with helpful staff.

  • Family with children

    Staff are basically slack and disorganized, we went to the hotel next door for service.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The staff were very freindly espesially the night porter a credit to any organisation. Nothing was any bother to this man

    The central location was excellent never needed to use my car the whole stay a real benifit

  • Couple

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Western Palace from the moment we checked in. Found the rooms very spacious and comfortable. The facilities within the hotel are great also for unwinding and relaxing. Really enjoyed the pool/spa area. Would definitely return to the hotel for a stay in the future.

    Our only concern was the creaky floors above our room which meant that you could hear every movement of the people above us. We brought this to the attention of the reception staff who advised that we could request the top floor on any future visits to prevent this. I would say the rooms are not very sound proof when it comes to people above us and the outside corridor noise.

  • Single
    10.0

    Location, spa centre, excellant room, breakfast, .Although I got parked and staff were very helpfull to accommodate, parking facilities are very limited.

    There was not any points that I disliked.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The two main features of this hotel is the proximity of being right in the city centre. All within walking distance and hotel right on riverside. The second fetaure is the lovely pool, gym, steam room and sauna jacuzzi.

    The car park is situated at the side of the hotel with very limited spaces. You are asked to double park and leave your keys at the leisure centre and when a space becomes available a meber of staff moves your car into one should it become available. Apparently the staff are insured should they damage your car whilst moving but I wasn't so keen so kept my keys.

  • Single
    8.2

    Location was very central.

    The heating does not come on until after 6.30pm which is not so good in cold weather.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Great location on the river and great views of the castle. It is less than a five minute walk into the town and transport links

    Room was too warm even though radiator off

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Situated well for Eden Court Theatre, welcoming with a good atmosphere, not too busy but not too quiet. Hotel pool was lovely, very relaxing. Breakfast good, ate in brasserie at night which was average.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Excellent view from room overlooking river Ness & castle, good location for shopping, walks along river & to canal and also for motoring down Loch Ness & up north to the Black Isle etc.

    No complaints, hotel service & food excellent.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Great hotel in a great location alongside the river and so near the shops, theatre and good restaurants. Beautiful bedroom and elegant public rooms. Great swimming pool and sauna/turkish rooms as well as a well equiped gym for relaxing and winding down after our long walks and day out.

    Nothing. Everything was perfect.
