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

Having completed my Land's End to John o'Groats cycle ride in the morning, I was dropped off at Craigside Guest House and greated with a warm and welcoming smile by Amy, one half of the duet that run and own the guest house. I was shown to large roomm with ensuite where I promptly collapsed. Each room has a simple... 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. I had a great view of Inverness Castle and the River Ness and some of the best sunsets I have ever... More

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.

I stayed here for one night while on a business trip, and really enjoyed it! Amy was very friendly when I arrived, and the room I was in had a beautiful view of Inverness Castle and the river. The room itself was warm, spacious, and comfortable, and there were a couple of bottles of water alongside the standard coffee tray,... More

We stayed here for two nights, got a hasty but warm welcome, room was spaciuous, but the bathroom was a desaster! It was like 10 degreees cold, the heater didn't really work, the shower was from the cheapest kind and the toilet as well. Also, the water shower kept changing from hot like lava to cold as ice. Of course,... More
