Really enjoyed my stay here - excellent service, immaculately clean rooms and facilities, and a most enjoyable dinner. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and could not have done more to make us welcome and comfortable.

Stayed here for a week last month, room was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Lovely breakfasts, food tasty and well presented and plenty of choice on the menu. Would have no trouble recommending to family and friends. Andrea and Stuart were perfect hosts,...welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely stay here again.More

We visited here after looking for somewhere to stop after driving up from southern Scotland to the highlands. This came up after a quick search on trip advisor. We were greeted by a friendly waitress, who quickly got us seated with menus. I had the...scallop and black pudding salad and my husband and son had sandwiches and soup. All meals arrived quickly and were very tasty. The scallops were well cooked and fresh. We also shared a scone which was wonderful. All in all a welcome pit stop before we continued our journey. Friendly staff and pretty setting looking out to the estuary.More

We had heard about the White Cottage on the way in to Inverness and were very keen to give this a try. On arrival the staff were incredibly welcoming and were really keen to ensure we had a great experience. The Food was EXCEPTIONAL and...excellent value for money, the cooked breakfasts were done exactly how we liked them and the Macaroni Cheese was prepared freshly to order and there was no trouble in making one without mustard. The tea room also has postcards and small prints by local artists and these are also highly recommended too! A HUGE thanks to staff at the White Cottage for making our visit a warm and welcoming one and I daresay we will be making a return visit very soon!.More

In need of sustenance before we travel home we searched and noted the cafe on Trip Advisor It was in the opposite direction to home, but whatever Where to park was not easy(and were all of the car owners in Cafe !!! Entered the cafe...which was bright, spotless and inviting Ordered omelette and avocado toast both of them delicious The owner was very engaging and welcoming to us We will be back and we will stay at the B&B Every success to the owners and you won't "find" a better little cafe anywhereMore

Lovely tea room with beautiful views. We visited twice for breakfast on a short stay at North Kessock. Food was excellent especially the pancakes and maple syrup. Staff were efficient and very friendly. On both occasions we sat at a table outside as we had...our 2 Labrador dogs with us who received a warm welcome. Would highly recommend.More

I took my wife, my son, his wife, my daughter and her husband and our two baby granddaughters for a late breakfast at the White Cottage Tea Room and we could not have been made anymore welcome. All our food was freshly cooked and it...was hot and very tasty. The young staff members were a real treat, they were very polite and extremely professional. We had a terrific dining experience, thanks to you all!!!More

We were lucky enough to get a table on a Saturday morning as walk ins but I would advice you book as tables went fast. The host was really nice and friendly, and the food was nothing short of perfect. The Eggs Benedict is served...on tattie scones and I went for the ham option, I'm still talking about how good that ham was days later. My partner went for the Avacado Toast which was delicious. The lunch menu looked so good, can't wait to book and return. The young waitress was super friendly, it's in a beautiful spot and a must visit.More

We'd highly recommend this little gem. It's a beautiful and very convenient location. Parking was super easy, the view was very peaceful and the atmosphere inside the cafe was great. The waitress was super friendly and efficient. The food was fresh, tasty and they served...tea made with proper tea leaves! It was the best breakfast we had during our week's stay in the Highlands.More

Whilst on a tour of Scotland in early July I found the White Cottage Tea Rooms by chance. This is an excellent bed and breakfast, comfortable clean and well presented room, the on suite was newly refurbished and shower was great after a few nights...of wild camping. Evening meals are available to residents and worthy of a good review if served in a restaurant and the breakfast was excellent, so much so that my wife and I stopped off for brunch on a touring trip around Scotland last week. Just two minutes off the main route I would definitely recommend if your looking for an Inverness stop off before or after a trip to John O’ Groats or the NC500More
