The Waterside Inverness is an independent hotel, beautifully located on the banks of the River Ness in the heart of Inverness, the capital city of the Highlands. Since launching The Waterside in June 2003, we have been working hard at creating a special all day venue in the heart of Inverness. We aim to offer a unique & comfortable setting for all day eating, drinking, accommodation, conferencing and events, giving our customers a consistently high quality of product & service. If you are looking for an excellent base to tour the Highlands, or just to get away from it all, The Waterside Inverness offers a warm welcome and Highland hospitality for the duration of your stay. Our refurbished Waterside Bar and Restaurant offers fresh food served all day from 7am to 10pm daily, fresh beers and ales, a fantastic range of wine by the glass or bottle and an open log fire.
Wining and Dining
Our conservatory showcases one of the most attractively situated restaurants in Inverness - with candlelit tables and views of the River Ness as standard - serving innovative food with traditional heritage. Our Head Chef Lara McLeod & her team believe that everyone should enjoy good food at the Waterside Restaurant, that is why she sources the best local ingredients & freshly prepares the dishes with care and imagination.
Our wedding and function suite has had extensive refurbishment, which now boasts the most up-to-date fibre optic lighting & interactive sound system in Inverness. From a starry night scene to a rainbow of twinkling colours, our venue can certainly add the wow factor and personalise the surroundings to your requirements. We also offer the opportunity to project your special moments of the past, or indeed the wedding day itself via our large screen digital projector.
Aside from the venue, our wedding menus have been produced using locally sourced ingredients, and our selector menus gives you control to offer the perfect menu for your guests, who will receive friendly, attentive & professional service. We can supply table flowers and balloon decorations, this allows an element of creativity & uniqueness.
The Waterside can comfortably seat 140 day guests, who can also enjoy our refurbished bedrooms at a preferential rate if required. Inverness has seen a dramatic surge of interest in civil ceremonies, and The Waterside is registered for civil ceremonies as well as traditional ceremonies.
For a stunningly located and unique wedding venue in the heart of Inverness, The Waterside Hotel is the place for your special day.
