The Craigside is in a good location within easy walking distance of the heart of Inverness. Parking was available on the street in front of the hotel. Our rooms were simple but well maintained. Some better pillows might have helped me sleep better. Host and staff were friendly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Craigside. Paul and Mandy had just assumed ownership two weeks before, but everything was very nicely executed. The facilities are clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. Breakfast room is sunny and bright. Location is outstanding for strolling around Inverness.

We stayed here last week for two nights and were very pleased. Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. We especially liked all the counter space in our bathroom -- a very nice touch. (I think it was room 3 on the second floor with a view of the Castle.) Mandy and Paul were attentive to all our needs,... More

We had difficulty finding this B&B. The room was very small and felt dirty. The bathroom had mold on the ceiling and in the shower, and the floor tile was peeling. The guesthouse needs some attention, but the owners are a young couple who have a toddler and a baby; they apparently don't have time. We had booked two nights... More

Our room was situated at the back of the house so we had a beautiful view of the River Ness and Inverness Castle. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. The Guesthouse is in easy walking distance to restaurants and shops in Inverness. We also took advantage of walking along the river which provided beautiful scenery.

Thrown in with a warm shower, typical yet a looked forward to English breakfast and a helpful host with your commute! Not far from the stations nor the market centre, while its tucked away from the crime scenes, it's a doable walk up the market stairs!

Only minutes from Inverness castle and one terminus of the Great Glen Way, Craigside Lodge offers a good location, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast and a welcoming atmosphere. Only minutes walk to central Inverness and with good views of the castle and town it proved very suitable to our needs.

Friendly husband & wife proprietors, outstanding location, quiet comfortable rooms make this guest house one of the best options in Inverness. The Lodge is an easy walk from the train station, Inverness Castle, the river promenade and numbers restaurants. Our top floor room was quiet, very clean and well appointed. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

Ewan and Amy hosted my daughter and I for two nights in Inverness. The breakfast was excellent, the beds were really comfortable and the bathroom and shower were really clean. The location is perfect, near the train station and restaurants. The view of the River Ness and the mountains was beautiful.

Arrived late in afternoon with an 'oversized' vehicle. Was able to park off street in a large, convenient space. Amy and two week old son Louis greeted us. Our room overlooked the river and a castle like structure (now I believe a government bldg). There is a very comfortable 'solarium' type room off the dining room that is perfect for... More
