The Waterside Hotel Inverness

Welcome to the Waterside Hotel Inverness


We are a privately owned hotel in Inverness which comprises of two river side properties located on the beautiful banks of the River Ness in the heart of Inverness, the capital City of the Highlands.

We have been working hard over the past three years to upgrade all of our facilities which include the guest bedrooms and our fantastic conference venue and wedding venue.

Rather than attempt to fit a universal mould, we feel a responsibility to enhance each of our accommodation locations by allowing their own atmospheres and unique characteristics to become as individual as our customers.

Our a la carte restaurant is one of the most attractively situated restaurants in Inverness offering a river view from every seat with food and refreshments all day.

For weddings in Inverness, functions and corporate events The Waterside Hotel Inverness provides a perfect setting with excellent facilities.

Friendly & relaxed staff ensure each guest enjoys their stay with us & our aim is to encourage our guests to return back to us time after time.

We hope you enjoy our web site and we look forward to welcoming you to The Waterside Hotel Inverness.

What Families Love About the Waterside

We love catering for families and the winter is no exception. We have a special relationship with Father Christmas who always pops by to meet our younger guests in the restaurant. From a High tea before the theatre to a Christmas Eve lunch, we have all you need for a great family Christmas with us. Our rooms are also child friendly and as you’ll see from the many five star reviews below, we know a thing or two about making children feel as though they are staying at a home away from home. “Lovely stay” We stayed here one night our hotel room was lovely and clean! We also had tea and breakfast here the service was wonderful the staff were very friendly and nothing was ever a problem. We will definitely be back! “Highly recommended!” My daughter, grandson and myself stayed at the Waterside Hotel on Monday 8th July,[click image to read more]
