pentastyle comes to Inverness

Frankfurt am Main, 29 March 2017 – Inverness, capital of the Highlands of Scotland, now has a fully refurbished pentahotel, bringing the penta group’s innovative “neighbourhood-lifestyle” approach to four-star hospitality to the heart of this strikingly beautiful city.

The 90 rooms, arranged on five floors, have undergone a complete makeover in the fresh and engaging pentastyle, where mattresses specially made for penta offer an exceptional standard of sleep. Its trademark pentalounge – combining reception, 24/7 bar and lounge, with pool table, game consoles and delicious food – is designed as a gathering place where visitors, locals and the business community can relax and mingle.

Set on Academy Street, just 100 yards from the station and 8 miles from the international airport, pentahotel Inverness is perfectly placed to serve all participants in the life of this city. Inverness is the fourth most popular tourist destination in the UK: gateway to the Highlands, close to Loch Ness and Culloden, and with plenty to see in the city itself. It is also a burgeoning centre for academic and medical research and education, and associated businesses and start-ups.

Pentahotels’ Managing Director, Alastair Thomann, comments: “It’s always exciting to present our latest hotel design, and to give our guests the opportunity to experience pentastyle at first hand – especially at pentahotels Inverness, which, of all our hotels, has the largest share of leisure guests. With its unique blend of four-star comfort and the inclusive neighbourhood vibe of the pentalounge offering great drinks and the best steaks in town, we want pentahotel Inverness to be the first choice for tourists and local businesses alike, and their guests, friends and families.”

pentahotel Inverness is one of six UK pentahotels, all of which (with the exception of Reading) have now been refurbished in the new pentastyle. It represents a massive investment in the important UK segment of this dynamic and fast-growing international brand, which is on target to expand from 27 properties to 80 around the world by 2020.

With 27 hotels across seven countries over two continents, pentahotels offers individual and business travellers comfort and style in a relaxed atmosphere. The hallmark of the hotel chain is the pentalounge – a combination of lounge, bar, café and reception – that stands out with its “living room” look and feel.
