Luxury Highland hotel, Ness Walk, has officially been given a five-star accreditation from Visit Scotland, following its £7m redevelopment.
The hotel, located in the centre of Inverness has been recognised for outstanding quality of guest experience, as well the development of a luxury product.
The 47-bedroom hotel opened in July following the transformation of a 19th century Grade-B listed building as part of £7m project.
The hotel also comprises a fine-dining restaurant Torrish, which is led by executive chef Craig Douglas.
Commenting on the rating, VisitScotland chief executive Malcolm Roughead said: “Congratulations to Ness Walk on this fantastic achievement. Ness Walk is the perfect example of the quality experience on offer to visitors to Inverness, and a great addition to the accommodation on offer in the city.
CEO of Kingsmills Group, owner of Ness Walk, Tony Story said: “It is an absolute delight for Ness Walk to be awarded a five-star grading by Visit Scotland. As part of The Kingsmills Group’s ongoing commitment to providing high quality accommodation, dining and event space to the Highlands this is a step in the right direction for both the hotel and Inverness.
“We have received amazing feedback from guests’ to Ness Walk and it is delightful to have Visit Scotland recognise all the work that has helped us get to this point.”
Ness Walk is the second hotel from the Kingsmill Group, and is the sister hotel to Kingsmill, also in Inverness.
