We stayed for one night as part of a 4 day Highlands tour. The location was selected by our tour company. We were very impressed with the accommodation. Our hosts were very welcoming. The room and bathroom were well appointed. Everything was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfy and had, perhaps, the fluffiest duvet we've ever... More

Can't say enough about Ruth, Ally and this lovely B&B! We stayed for two nights during a round tour of Scotland and it was such a welcoming place to stay! We booked at very short notice so we had to switch rooms from a family room to a double on the second day but both rooms were very well appointed... More

There is absolutely nothing bad to say about this B&B. We stayed here with a group of 8, devided over 3 rooms (2x2, 1x4). The rooms are comfortable, have their own bathrooms, the beds are nice and there is wifi reception in every room. The best part however is that Ally and Ruth, the owners, are just the nicest people... More

We had a great stay at Atherstone - though too brief. Ally, Ruth and little M were great hosts and made us feel genuinely welcome in their home and in Inverness. The Guest House is great value for money, is well located and is well-connected to public transit. We would highly recommend it and would certainly stay there again if... More

I stayed at the Atherstone Guest House for one night. I found it to be very well run, with very helpful and friendly owners, and I greatly enjoyed my stay. The owners provided all sorts of helpful advice about restaurants and activities. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was adequate, although perhaps the house cooking skills could... More

We stayed with Ruth and Ally on our way to John O'Groats and liked it so much we stayed again on our way back down! They are fabulous hosts, knowledgeable and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Even our bicycles had great secure accommodation! The location is perfect - quiet and just a short walk to the river and... More

We really enjoyed our stay with Ruth and Ally. They were gracious, welcoming hosts who provided us with a memorable experience. They gave us excellent tips on day trips around the area and really took the time to tell us about all of the special sights to see. Their home was located a short 5 minute walk to town and... More

I am not one for B&Bs in general because of the uncertain standard, but in Inverness there are only B&Bs to choose from. So I tried my luck with Atherstone, and was so pleasantly surprised by Ruth and Ally. The rooms were spacious and best of all CLEAN. Water was running, the room had plenty of light and there was...

The room was clean and well presented with some excellent home baking on arrival. Good nights sleep and great breakfast. Highly recommend. The guest house is situated just a short 5 min walk from the city centre.
