Very happy with our experience - we were late arriving (after 11pm) - no problem (texts to enquire what time we expected to arrive, and stayed up for us), and we had not booked with breakfast - no problem to have it. We booked the downstairs family room for three adults, and it was fine, though not that large. Generous... More

Visiting Inverness to attend an AGM, I stayed overnight at this Guest House - and was very welcome and comfortable. This is not a fashionable nor a trendy place but it provides everything you need for a basic stay - and is short distance from the riverside walk into the centre of Inverness. Parking is readily available in the street.

Ok the whole place is a bit tired, furniture broken, decor needs a refresh and may not be to everyone's taste. Far too many ornaments, cuddly toys and random pictures in the bedroom. Shower sounds like a Hoover. But the water was hot, the bed was comfy, the breakfast was ok, the hosts were friendly.

So I'll start as I always do with my reviews and that's the beginning.... Easy enough to find. Easy to park right out front and its free! It is a public street though and not reserved so could cause problems at busier times....more on that to follow....I got a lovely warm greeting when I arrived and shown to my room...no... More

I was in Inverness for an important interview. Phoning before to check if breakfast included as it said on website , then phoning for directions arriving late , found both times phone simply switched to fax. The venue is quite a walk away from the town in my opinion , hard to find without help , and you need to... More

Cosy Family run guest house within short walking distance of city centre and river ness. Continued to stay here for 3 night runs since my first review and find it to be excellent. The room I got was large and had tea/coffee snacks/toiletries in bathroom.

Very good place to stay. Everything was clean. There were cookies, chips, tea, coffee, water in the room. Breakfast was very good. Only a 10 minute walk to the centre of Inverness. When we're in Inverness again, we would stay here.

This B&B is horrible, I had a single room the size of a closet the carpet was filthy and the bed was the single most uncomfortable thing I had ever slept on and it made the most horrendous noises so if you happened to fall asleep simply roll over and the noise would wake you up, as for breakfast, one...

If you fancy being greeted by someone dressed in an aged tracksuit, this is the place for you. The guesthouse is a throw back to the days when Scotland did not really know what good standards were. The guesthouse is totally over priced and does not even include breakfast. From my experience it does not do Scotland and Inverness justice.
