Stayed here for a couple of nights while working in the area (a couple of years ago). The house is lovely and the rooms are great. Had a very comfortable sleep. Delicious breakfast as well. Very friendly owners. Judging from the more recent reviews the standards are still as high as ever. Recommended.

My husband, daughter (12) and I stayed a couple of nights during the 2014 Mòd. Delicious breakfast, comfortable room and close to the town centre. The hosts were delightful and could not have made us feel more welcome. They were on hand with lots of local advice. Highly recommend!

Extremely friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We had booked late as an elderly relative had been taken into Raigmore Hospital and the proprietor was sypathetic and extremely helpful and had even moved guests to fit us in. This topped with an excellent breakfast (the potato scones were especially appreciated by my mother in law) made a potentially... More

Although we were only able to stay one night at Altholdene House, we were most impressed with the kind and generous hospitality of Gillian and Andrew. When we arrived, Gillian showed us to our immaculate and tastefully-appointed room and then provided us with options and directions as to where we could find good food and beautiful walks along the river...

Stayed as a party of three single men on a motorcycle trip. We were greeted with genuine warmth by charming and enthusiastic hosts. My room was clean and the bed comfortable. The cooked breakfast was freshly prepared and the service excellent. Free WiFi was a real plus. The house is located within an easy walk of the town centre and... More

On arrival we were met by the lovely Gillian... More

This beautiful old house right in the centre of Inverness gives direct access to all the city has to offer in eateries and entertainment. I felt a real highland welcome when arriving at this family run guesthouse, the owner was helpful in connecting me to their wifi and also organising our day trips. As I was part of a group... More
