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

I stayed here whilst on a business trip, and I would very much like to say... What a great place this is to stay. I've stayed in many hotels and guest houses over the years but this one is definitely somewhere I would stay again and again. If I was to sum it up in 20 words or less They... More

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
