Beautiful view of River Ness, the castle and up the High Street. Eleanor is very kind, friendly and welcoming. Her assistant Mia is beautiful and charming. The location could not be better. Right at the bridge and Ness Walk. Just pull up on the sidewalk and ring the bell to drop your bags, then go park your car. Eleanor will... More

Castle View is a fantastic hidden gem! We spent one very comfortable night here- the room was clean, comfy, and spacious. Breakfast was the best we had in our entire week in Scotland (try the porridge and the hot Scottish breakfast foods!). The location was fantastic, all of downtown Inverness is right at the doorstep, and the river and castle... More

My friend and I spent 2 nights in a twin room with a great view of the castle last week. Not only were we thrilled with the location (right on the river and a quick walk to everything) but we also loved Eleanor and her charming guest house. The room was cozy and well appointed with comfy beds, a sink... More

this was the first time that I have stayed here but it wont be the last. I had two friends from Russia with me and when we arrived they were given a room with views of the castle and river. I asked the owner if we would be having black pudding for breakfast and she made sure that we did... More

Had a magic weekend made all the more special being spoiled by an excellent hostess. Eleanor & Mia (the dog) runs a great bed & breakfast and makes you so welcome. We have stayed in many hotels over the years in Inverness but this beats the Loy. So homely, lovely breakfasts. Will be back without a doubt.

I would certainly recommend it to any one - relaxing, cosy, and such a great location - I will be back soon!

This was my first stay in a Bed & Breakfast, but after this I may be converted from hotels. Eleanor was amazing at accommadating my gluten free diet. She was very helpful before I even arrived when I asked about sightseeing options during my stay. My room was always clean and warm during my 3 night stay. I really enjoyed... More

Beautiful view and excellent location. It is really in the central.The house is very nice and quiet. Eleanor is a warm and welcoming hostess who was very nice and helpful to me. The breakfast was very delicious and big and when I couldn't have it on my last day, she made me a take away bag. I would recommend this... More

We spent two nights here while working at the theatre. Eleanor gave us a fantastic welcome, rooms were quiet and clean and breakfast was fantastic. Great buffet with lots of fresh fruit, porridge and help-yourself hot food plus eggs and toast cooked to order. We couldn't have asked for more. An extra bonus was the absolutely wonderful dog who welcomed... More
