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.

Ally and Ruth have been the friendliest hosts we had in Scotland and they gave us not only a friendly welcome but made us feel home.

Went to Inverness without having booked any accommodation. Booked here after some research and found out that the hosts are incredibly helpful and hospitable people. They love what they do and they love their area (very knowledgeable too). Rooms were nice, modern, comfortable and clean above all. Breakfast hit the spot and every recommendation of theirs between pub and restaurant... More

We have stayed with Ruth and Ally on our last three trips to Inverness. We see no need to look for an alternative. They are a lovely couple. Atherstone is but a short stroll to the centre of town. The rooms are pleasant, The breakfasts are excellently cooked and sufficiently substantial to keep you going until the evening. Ruth and... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ali and Ruth are welcoming hosts and very knowledgeable about the local area. The hotel is not far from the River Ness, so not far to walk into the town and around £4.00 in a taxi from the station . Alternatively, for drivers there is off-road parking.The room and en-suite...
