After spending 3 nights in Edinburgh, 4 of us (wife, myself, two older teenagers) are taking the train to Inverness and renting a car for the remainder of out 10 day trip (July). We want to stay in that area for 3 days. Seems like lots of rooms at B&B's already taken for the dates we want and the prices at the larger hotels are sky high. A few questions I'm hoping a previous visitor can answer:
I found a family room at the Castle Hotel downtown, but on past trips the family rooms (at two hotels in England) tended to be shoved in what once was the attic spaces and they are hot in the summer. Feedback on the Castle Hotel appreciated please and this room in particular?
How noisy are the downtown hotels in Inverness? Like sleeping in SOHO with people yelling into the night?
Recommendations for a quieter place like an old converted estate someplace nearby? We can drive.
Thanks in advance for any help.
