Comfortable room overlooking the Inverness Castle, literally. I only stayed one night due to my travels but the bed was very comfortable with good wifi access for my trip planning. They are great hosts and made sure I was comfortable by providing recommendations on sights and dinner. Breakfast was the best I had - special oatmeal/porridge (you will just have... More

Wow! Look out the window to see Inverness Castle. Or walk to some excellent restaurants. Or stay in the relaxing sunroom, enjoy your tea, and just chill out. This is a beautiful, well run home where we were warmly welcomed. We highly recommend it.

Mandy was very helpful when we arrived allowing us to see all the rooms first before we have agreed to take them even though we had booked reservations. Rooms were ensuite, okay and tidy. Close proximity to city centre overlooking the inverness castle. Food were good. And Paul was very informative about the surrounding area. Overall we were satisfied. Only... More

We had just finished walking the Great Glen Way and arrived at the Craigside after completing our trek at its end point at the castle. Mandy and Paul are the Craigside’s new owners and are absolute gems. Mandy greeted us with such graciousness that we felt immediately welcome. She and Paul went out of their way to make our stay...

Spent one night there and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was very clean and overlooked the castle. The owners were very helpful in giving us directions in and out of town, and also helped us find places to visit and recommended restaurants close by. For breakfast, try the porridge with whiskey and honey--excellent!

Our only regret is that we didn't stay here longer. Wonderful owners, a great location, comfortable room with a view of the castle and Inverness, and a nice breakfast. We parked on the street outside of the house. We would definitely come back.

The Craigside is perfectly situated on a quiet street just a walk around the corner and down the hillside to town. Our room looked out to the castle. Great breakfast in a light, airy dining room. Free parking. Good price point. The new owners are equipped with meaningful local knowledge and were most helpful and friendly with some great suggestions... More

Excellent position, in a quiet road only five minutes walk from the town centre. Our room was situated on the lower floor next to the dining room. The only view from our window was to a brick wall some 25 feet away. Unfortunately, the lounge also looked into our window, so for privacy we lowered the blinds. This move revealed... More

The owners were very helpful and the breakfast served each day was delicious. We were able to park in the driveway however street parking is also available. Some very good restaurants were recommended and in walking distance from the guest house.

Under new management but still charming and very clean, excellent breakfast cooked to order, offstreet parking and great views of the castle. The bed was super comfortable, and the area was quiet at night. There is a nice sunroom for the guests, and coffee, tea, and biscuits in the room. Convenient location and good access to public transportation, overall a... More
