Hotel in centre of town

Pros: Great location in centre of town. Laundry around the corner. Full cooked breakfast available.
Cons: Shower water pressure was poor.
Location: The whisky trail is a great place to go if you have a car and designated non drinking driver.
Simple check-in. If you have a car you have to park in the Rose Street public car park which costs 7 pounds per day and is some distance from the hotel.

Pentahotel Review

Pros: Food and bar facilities. Location good.
Cons: Staff knowledge to assist could be improved. We were declined dinner as a bus had arrived!
Location: Good location. Bag drop could be improved at back of hotel! Off location parking was a problem.
Overall this is a hipster hotel where the staff are too involved in the bar than the hotel. Facilities are limited especially parking. Off loading suitcases is an issue! Rooms are Spartan and our bed was very uncomfortable - esp after the advertisements made a point of this! Location in the town was good esp for train arrival. Travel to Loch Ness was the attraction as well as Fort William and other areas.
