The accommodation was present in a central location near to the train station, castle and the stop where tour operators pick passengers. It's just beside the river, ness walk and close to popular bars, restaurants and shopping Lane. The room that we were provided was spacious with all facilities which are not usually provided in B&Bs. Though it was in... More

As really suggested by the name, you can enjoy castle view from your windows. The rooms are perfect and clean in very good condition and of a size which encourages relaxation and long stay. But the major characteristics of this guesthouse are the friendly hostess Mrs. Eleanor and her fantastic dog Mi , who will help with anything she can... More

Castle View Guesthouse is a very convenient place to stay in Inverness. It is located on the river and a 5min walk to the center of town, 10min walk to the train station. Eleanor was super helpful with everything and the rooms were very clean, with large bathrooms. It's a great place to stay. One small thing to keep in... More

Let's start with the view, as suggested with the name, you can wake up to views across the river to the castle. The rooms themselves are in good condition and of a size which encourages relaxation. The real joys of this guesthouse are the marvellously friendly hostess, who will help with anything she can and always has time for a... More

This was a lovely B&B. Elanor was very friendly and helpful, she gave us lots of advise on local places and where is nice to go for a meal etc. Nothing was too much trouble. Her little dog Mia is very cute. The room was clean and tidy with a great view of the Castle. The breakfast was great. Plenty... More

What a lovely end to walking the Great Glen. The owner was incredibly courteous and helpful, and always looking after the needs of her guests. The guesthouse covers about four floors and is well appointed and maintained, as well as charming. My room was on the top floor. It was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent. This is an excellent... More

We stayed for one night in Room 3. Eleanor was very friendly - as was Mia the lovely wee dog! The guesthouse is very centrally located and the room has great views over the River Ness and Inverness Castle. The bed was comfortable, the wifi worked well and the breakfast was fantastic - proper espresso coffee via a self-operated Nespresso... More

We arrived here in a heavy rain and were met with coffee, tea, and shortbread biscuits, which were very much appreciated. Our room was nice, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Great location to explore downtown from, and great view of the castle. We very much enjoyed talking to Eleanor, and if you have pizza for supper, bring some crust back for... More
