Gorgeous 40 Bedroom Refurbishment Completed
Stay & Sleep in Style at the Palace
Exciting news from all at the Palace, we want to share the completion of the gorgeous 40 bedroom refurbishment. The Palace is a family run #Inverness hotel and in the depths of winter we started yet another extensive refurbishment programme. This time we focused on creating 40 brand new sophisticated bedrooms and a stunning new Leisure Club. Both fabulous projects are now complete and we are very excited to share all the details, more to follow shortly on the Leisure Club!
Here at the Palace, we want to offer you not only a fabulous welcome, friendly and attentive service but somewhere a little luxurious; we hope you like the results. Rest assured these are not the only rooms that we have renovated recently, in the last year we have now refurbished 98 rooms within the hotel!
The Palace Hotel was was designed by Ross & MacBeth and opened in 1890, it is a Baronial-style three-storey building, with two conical-roofed towers, connected by an arch. These fabulous historic and architectural features have allowed us to create unique spaces for you to sleep, retreat and in many cases enjoy the wonderful River and Inverness Castle views.
The Palace does not just offer another hotel room, it offers you a unique stay! Each room is individually styled, combining the traditional period features and the comfort of modern living; with elegant modern fabrics and sophisticated finishes. If you like period drama we have lots to offer, grand high ceilings and cornicing, with large windows bathing the rooms in light and of course offering fabulous views. But don’t worry if you prefer less period features, you will enjoy the contemporary and recently refurbished rooms; there is something for everyone at the Palace.

Working with Corrinne Muir Interiors, Dovetail Enterprises and our fabulous local trades we have completed this stunning 40 bedroom refurbishment. These lovely period guest rooms have had a complete makeover.

Gorgeous deep pelmets have been added with chrome studding detail to ensure guests can enjoy both the stunning light, views and a restful nights sleep.
Lots of little touches have been added to the design scheme, sumptuous padded bed throws, statement bed heads, comfortable relaxing chairs and lots of complimentary cushions to create a refined sophisticated space to relax and unwind.
