Loch Ness is just a few miles away so if you want to go Loch Ness Monster-spotting, Inverness is the place to stay. Inverness is a small-sized city that has plenty going on in it, with live music most nights and lots of restaurants and pubs to pick and choose from.
The Inverness Student Hotel has a terrific outlook over the river and the city to the hills beyond. It's a cute building with real character and a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Our comfortable dormitory rooms have between 5 and 10 beds.
We have a spacious common room with a large open fireplace and big victorian style windows that offer stunning views over the river ness. It is a great place to meet like minded travellers, whilst enjoying all the free tea, coffee and hot chocolate you can drink!
The Student Hotel staff are always very friendly and approachable. We can help you book your tours, recommend places to visit and most importantly we know the hidden gems of the city to ensure you a memorable time in Inverness.
We can arrange bike rental and will send you on your way with free maps to help you discover the magnificent beauty that she is....Loch Ness!
If you do see Nessie, don't forget to mention that you're staying with us when you talk to the press!
