Nice, clean accomadations in an period home with modern updates. Our room had a modern shower, comfy linens with a flat screen TV. Ruth and Aly are very friendly and helpful, willing to assist in any way to make restaurant reservations or provide information about the town. Lovely cooked breakfast included eggs made to order, sausage or bacon, croissants, yogurt,... More

The accomodations were wonderful - super clean, charming and comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic!!! I had a plate of wonderful poached eggs, potatoes, pastries and more - delicious!!! We were located only a short walk from the River... More

I stayed one night on a business trip and felt really at home. Ally and Ruth are very welcoming and helpful. The bedroom was lovely with high quality bedding and very comfy mattress - the ensuite was amazing. All immaculately clean and free wifi throughout the house. But best of all was the beautifully cooked breakfast with high quality ingredients... More

My grandma and I were on the Rabbie's Orkney Tour with one night in Inverness. This little place is a hidden gem. The young couple that runs this place have a lot on their plates with two small children and running a B&B but are doing it so well. We had the twin room and it was a perfect size,... More

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
