Fabulous BB, lovely and clean, nice fire in the breakfast room, great breakfast, struggled to eat it all. Only a 10 min walk from the town centre, rooms a good size. Margo was a fabulous host, thanks for a very comfortable stay.

Margo and Alastair are fantastic hosts. My wife and I along with her parents stayed in Oakvilla's 2 King-size bed en-suite rooms for 4 nights May 13 through 17th. The rooms are incredibly sound proof (even between the bathroom and room). After a nice conversation with Alastair that involved some tips on driving in Scotland (since I'm from the USA),... More

My sister and I spent two nights at Oakvilla in early May. Our twin room was so comfortable, with soft pillows and a cozy wool throw on the beds for those chilly spring nights. Margo's welcome was warm and friendly, with a spot on recommendation for dinner. Breakfast kept us going until lunch, with great bacon and the best coffee.... More

We (myself and three friends) spent two nights at the Oakvilla B&B. It was booked through a tour so we had no idea where we were going but by the end of the two nights we were reluctant to leave. Margo was very friendly and helpful (helped us figure out where to go to find good food, etc.), breakfast was... More

Spent four nights at the oakvilla b&b.....Margo the owner was very friendly and helpful . The oakvilla was spotlessly clean, warm with a friendly atmosphere. The breakfast menu was excellent and the food was cooked to perfection. We will most certainly be back. We visit Inverness twice a year and this was our best b&b experience by far...thank you margo&Alistair...... More

Fantastic Guest House, great modern rooms. Margot and Alistor are lovely and very helpful. Motorbikes can be parked out of sight👍. All tours around Inverness can be planned from here, especially into the north of Scotland. Thanks for a great stay!

Margo takes excellent care. We had the top room, facing the back. It was dead quiet and sunny as well. Lovely decor, large bathroom, comfy bed and plenty of closet space. a great night's sleep followed by a delicious Scottish breakfast. Too bad we could only spend one night.

We stayed here as were taking part in a cycle ride from Inverness. With a very early start and not expected to return before checkout time. We were able to store bikes in the garage and were still provided with a hot shower and breakfast. As I returned very cold this was bliss. Even without this extra service the rooms... More
