Ally and Ruth made us feel welcome as soon as we got in (we were taking part in a Highland tour and lucked out by staying at the Atherstone). The room was well furnished and very comfortable, the breakfast was fantastic, and it was well situated for walking around Inverness and having a good explore. Would definitely stay here again...

Well located with off-street parking and within moderate walking distance of downtown and eating/drinking/shopping/touring. Good recommendations on where to eat and drink. Room had all the facilities and was spacious and quiet. Although no cooked breakfast, there was a wide range of good choices to make a substantial breakfast.

Ally and Ruth were both very warm, kind and welcoming! Ally is a fount of knowledge and happy to help guests with suggestions for sites and restaurants. Ruth treated us to her wonderful homemade truffles and had great suggestions too. Atherstone Guest House is very centrally located and a short walk over the River Ness foot bridge to reach downtown... More

My small family party have just spent 3 days in Inverness staying at Atherstone Guesthouse owned by Ally and Ruth Beaton. What a lovely experience it was! Nice house, clean and tidy, with comfy beds, lovely breakfasts and warm hospitality. However, the best bits of this B&B are the owners. Ruth is very warm and welcoming and Ally is an... More

Met at the front door by a friendly host, given keys, a menu for breakfast and a map to downtown for dinner. Had a great sleep, an excellent breakfast, and wished we could stay longer. Very clean, nice TV.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at Atherstone. Ruth and Ally are so kind and helpful. I have many food intolerances and Ruth went out of her way to make sure I had enough to eat as well as insisting I take the gluten free oat biscuits with me when we left. We definitely appreciated them later that day. Lovely... More

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

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
