Wonderful experience. Great Host. Great Breakfast. After the last visit told Kenny that we would be back and we have already made arrangements to stay there again. Room was clean, spacious and catered for everything we needed.

I stayed at the Melrose Villa whilst in Inverness for business over a weekend. The en-suite room we stayed in was a good size, clean, very warm (which was fantastic, as it was snowing during our time in Inverness) and well stocked with water, tea, coffee, milk, sugar etc. The bathroom was spacious, had everything we required and the shower...

Inverness is notorious for expensive accommodation. It's very difficult to find somewhere affordable to stay and this place is clearly exploiting that fact by offering sub standard accommodation, safe in the knowledge that people will continue to pay more than it's worth. It angers me that places like this stay in business not because they offer a great service but... More

My Stay at Melrose Villa was a lovely one. It's a cosy place. Very comfortable bed and sumptuous duvet! Kenny the proprietor can't do enough for your stay to be comfortable. The food is lovely and can't fault the choice available. A previous review complained about the rules everywhere but each room has to display them like no smoking policy... More

Arrived outside hotel and could not identify where to park as permit parking only outside. This was at 4.25 pm. I was told check in was from 4.30 only and that I could park in the local supermarket carpark and then move to the permit holders later. The owner then said that although permit parking is until 6 pm no... More

Very welcoming and friendly owner, in fact made our stay. Decor dated but pretty well kept. Had a great nights sleep. Breakfast hour was a bit early for us but was a fine breakfast. Parking was difficult but Inverness isn't great for parking anyway.

Location was great. Parking is very difficult. You can't check in until 4:30pm. Room was ok but really overpriced for what is was. We have stayed in many B&B's and feel that for what it was it should have been much lower price that is why I scored it poor rather than average. Breakfast was not great, we couldn't drink... More

I loved staying at Kenny's bnb. It was a genuine experience. I loved his sense of humor. The rooms were just enough space and the breakfast was great. All the toast one could ever need. His dog Robbie was hilarious. I felt like we had a wonderful experience. I highly recommend it. The location was great. Just a moments walk... More

It was a really good experience. The building and rooms are very cozy and comfortable. We were very welcome by Kenny, who was very nice with us. The hotel is near the city center, like 10 minutes walking max and on the way you have plenty of restaurants and pubs. You also have supermarkets quite close in case you need... More

I really love Kenny and Melrose Villa, it's authentically Scottish, it's quaint, twee, there's a stags head on the wall in the breakfast room and if Laura Ashley was an older scottish lady this is the B&B she would have created. Yes it's true you can only check in between 4.30 and 8.30 but hey, that's not so bad, yes... More
