My son and I were fortunate to have been put up at the Atherstone Guest House by Heartland Travel during our tour of the Highlands. We were only there for one night but didn't want to leave, Ally and Ruth were charming hosts and their home is lovely. Our room was beautifully decorated, welcoming and outfitted with everything we might... More

Our hosts Ally and Ruth were wonderful, informative and welcoming. The rooms were immaculate and homey. Breakfast was delicious. There were 6 in our group and it felt like we were staying with friends. We would highly recommend staying here!

From the time we stepped in Ally and Ruth were warm and welcoming. The location of the property is ideal, not too far from the main city centre, yet not too close that is away from the crowd. Rooms were tastefully decorated and well equipped. Breakfast was sublime, very well cooked and wholesome. On the whole cannot recommend Atherstone enough... More

Our late arrival on the 1st August 2015 was met with a very friendly warm welcome. We had two rooms, both immaculate, beds very comfortable and, in the morning, a very hearty breakfast to start the day. A special mention the wee man Murray who put a smile on everyone's face at breakfast time and started our day just right.... More

We stayed at Atherstone for one night only, but were welcomed very warmly and supplied with lots of tips for our short stay in Inverness. The room was modern, but cosy. Breakfast was made fresh to order and served in a bright and spacious dining room.

I don't have a bad word to say about my stay at Atherstone. Ruth and Ally were fabulous hosts, they couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. Ally also has a lot of knowledge about the Highlands and Scotland which we found very interesting and helpful. The room was immaculate and equipped with everything we needed (en suite, TV, hair...

From the start Ally and Ruth were so welcoming when my friend and I arrived at their home. We stayed in a twin room which was immaculate. The beds were so comfy and the bathroom was lovely with a great shower. We had breakfast in the light and airy dinning room which was delicious. The guest house is in a... More

I loved this Guest House. I would have to say that it was my favourite of all destinations I have been to in Europe. It was a home away from home. The hosts were so welcoming and accomodating. It was clean, spacious and homely. The bed was comfortable, the shower hot and breakfast was delicious! I would definitely reccomend a... More

A rather belated review but needed doing! A friend and I stayed here over Easter for 3 nights, it's the second time I've stayed here and is to be thoroughly recommended. I've stayed in plenty of B&Bs in Inverness over the years but this is now my first choice. Not just is it in a nice area, theres off road... More

There’s nothing quite as inviting as being welcomed by Ruth, Alley and cherry-cheeked Murray part of the family of 4 who run this guest house. We’re sorry we never got to see baby Grace. This warm family went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Alley brought our bags up to our room and gave us an orientation... More
