This guest house is in a great location, right on the river bank of the Loch Ness, with spectacular views of the castle and only minutes away from the high street. The guest house is accessible along Ness Walk, next to the Rocpool Restaurant, just a doorway with the castle view signage. There is a number of pubs/eateries along that... More

We stayed here May 25 - 28, 2015 This was our first B&B in Scotland and Eleanor set the bar high in every way. She is a kind lady who is eager to help in any way. She is very welcoming and epitomizes Scottish hospitality. Castle View has the best location possible. You will pass through a small door almost... More

Memorable and relaxing stay, convenient location. Warm welcome by Eleanor and her pet Mia. She made me choose between a room with a view or the new room at the top (4th floor I think). Instantly liked the new room ensuite bath. Pleasant breakfast room with castle view. Hearty breakfast spread including honey from her friend's farm. Issue with wifi... More

I can endorse all that has been written. Eleanor and Mia are wonderful hosts a beautiful building and a fantastic breakfast. Centrally situated but with lovely walks along the river and 10 minute stroll to the botanical gardens where the tropical house is lovely. The open top city tour bus can be taken from here also. Thank you for a... More

First I would have to start of by saying that Eleanor is a very welcoming and friendly host. She's happy to sit and chat with you about your trip and give you very useful recommendations about what to do and where to go around Inverness. The b&b itself is located right in the centre of Inverness and it's a nice... More

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.
