I needed a place to stay near the hospital so I could visit my Dad and Drakies Cottage was ideally situated and had great reviews. What I found was the best B&B I could imagine that was just as great as all the reviews said, if not better. It is also incredibly good value. Elaine and Ken are lovely, warm,... More

For any traveller wanting an excellent bed an breakfast say in Inverness, we heartily recommend Drakies Cottage. Elaine prepares the rooms to a very high standard, with little extra touches that makes the stay special. Whilst Ken makes well presented tasty breakfasts, all in all a great place to stay.

whilst exploring B & B's in Inverness we came across Drakies Cottage, what caught our eye was that it was near to the venue were we were attending our friends wedding. And that we noticed that Ken was a taxi driver as we needed to be picked up from the airport and to take us to the wedding venue, ken... More

I have just returned from Inverness, having been booked into Drakies Cottage for 3 nights! I have stayed in hotels and B & B's on a regular basis over the years, but this accommodation is by far the best! Elaine has obviously done her research and has so many nice little extras in the room, eg, fresh fruit daily, shortbread,... More

I would like to sing the praises for this fantastic b & b from 'the Highlands to the Lowlands!'. I stayed at Drakies Cottage recently, on two separate occasions, and would recommend it wholeheartedly . I do love a 'nice hotel' and have never been a big fan of b & b's.However, staying at Drakies Cottage has certainly changed my... More

My daughter and I stayed when my husband was in hospital and we were made to feel so welcome by both Elaine and Ken. The room was fantastic, more than you would expect - fresh fruit and biscuits and the scottish tablet was much appreciated by my daughter!! I called to book again on very short notice and Elaine was... More

A wonderful b&b! I stayed several nights while my husband was in Raigmore Hospital, was made to feel very 'at home'. The room was delightful with lots of nice touches....the home baking and fresh fruit were especially welcome! Elaine and Ken have succeeded in combining first class service and warm hospitality. We have returned twice and are planning a visit... More

I stayed here on two occasions when my mother was in hospital. The rooms were spotless and had more facilities than you would get in many hotels. The location is easy walking distance of Raigmore hospital, at most 5mins. I would without any doubt, recommend this B&B.

I stayed here for 2 weeks in September 2012 whilst working at Raigmore Hospital. Kenny runs a taxi as well so he picked me up from the airport. Both Kenny and Elaine made me very welcome, the room was comfortable and quirky with lots of nice touches and a daily supply of fruit and snacks. Breakfast was freshly cooked with... More
