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

Just spent a few days in Inverness at Craigside. Excellent location in a quiet neighborhood across the street and up the hill from the castle. My charming room had castle and river views. Even had a view of nesting seagulls on the rooftop across from and below my window. Breakfast was to-order and excellent. A brown bag breakfast was waiting... More

A really well positioned guest house for the town centre. A lovely house with character and Ewan and Amy was great hosts and very helpful with regard to local amenities. The breakfast room is welcoming and the food did not disappoint, with very friendly staff. Our only thoughts was that the bedroom although very comfortable and with a great view... More

I was there for 10 day in April 15. Had the best time. Amy and Ewan were fantastic hosts and very helpful when ever I had a question about anything from where places were to how to get there.

Room was in excellent shape and the hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. We felt very welcome. Nice shower and room had good heat. Electric water heater for shower provided even water temperature. Safe, friendly location with some parking available next to the building.
