My wife and I have been staying at Ghillies Lodge since we met just over ten years ago, and have to say we simply look forward to the drive, on the Friday mornings that we have booked all the way up the A9 to Inverness.On arriving,you could not find better hosts in both Mary & George who are very welcoming...

My friend and I only stayed two nights but wish it could have been longer. I noticed an award on the wall that said The Ghillies had won "Friendliest B&B" - and the owner, Mary, couldn't deserve this more! She was so kind and welcoming, and truly made us feel at home. We stayed in the twin room right in... More

Lovely B&B along the River Ness in Inverness. I stayed in the King bed room and it was beautiful and very spacious. The bed was amazingly comfortable and the view on the river was lovely. I enjoyed listening to the river as I fell asleep. Mary was so lovely and made delicious breakfast in the morning. I would stay here... More

We booked this very last minute when we had one of the children given a place at Stirling Uni. Had not stayed in a B&N since a child and was really pleased with what we saw and experienced. The lady was there to welcome us when we arrived, the room was great and the food wonderful. The view from the... More

Mary was an absolutely wonderful host. My husband and I booked our trip to Scotland on very late notice on the bank holiday weekend. We were lucky to still have the opportunity to book with the Ghillies Lodge, but we had to book the standard room with two twin beds. We were fine with that and enjoyed our first night.... More

The proprietor of this B&B is one of the most gracious hostesses we have ever encountered. The Lodge is location is idllic, the breakfasts were fantastic and our stay was at the top of best experiences over the 15 days we spent in Scotland and Ireland. Robert & Audrey Wylie

Outstanding bed and breakfast, clean and very welcoming. The house is 15 mins walking distance from the city centre and beautifully located next to the River Ness with a terrace overlooking the river and the islet. It is truly amazing. Despite being on a relatively busy road, the rooms are quiet. Very fluffy towels, incense and nice hand-washing products are... More

Good location and close to town, but best suited for people without a car as the parking arrangement is very poor. Landlady is nice and everything is clean. Spacoius rooms but tiny bathrooms, some even without a shower. Outdoor area great. No keys to the rooms as there is a code lock on the front door, but it is unlocked... More

Management response:

Thank you for making me aware of the problem with the lack of water and we have discovered it is due to low pressure coming into the building from the mains supply. This has now been rectified. There are room keys for each of the rooms and it is the guests choice whether they lock them or not. Apart from... More

Lovely B&B beside the River Ness. At night I fell asleep to the sound of the water floating by - so calming and relaxing after a long day hiking in the Highlands! The hostess was incredibly friendly, welcoming and she instantly cooked whichever traditional Scottish breakfast I requested in the morning. She even fed me sweets every day... what a... More
