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

My mother and I had a wonderful stay at the Atherstone Guest House and can't thank Ally & Ruth Beaton (and smiley son) for their hospitality. Clean, comfortable, quiet, and everything you could want from a B&B.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Atherstone Guest House. The room was spacious and comfortable with lovely décor. We were made extremely welcome by our hosts Ruth and Ally from the minute we arrived. The breakfast was delicious with a good selection, an excellent start to our day before heading on. We only wish we could have stayed for... More

This is my first time staying at a bed and breakfast and happy to find it very pleasant. Unlike hotels or hostels, Atherstone is able to give a more personal and welcoming vibe. Ally and Ruth are very helpful and friendly. Our room and bathroom are very clean and nicely accommodated with flat screen tv, wifi, bedside reading material, hair... More

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
