Cycling The Great Glen Way from Fort William, we had previously stayed In Spean Bridge, Fort Augustus and Drumnadrochit; our final destination was Inverness. We had chosen The Ballifeary due to its location west of the river and outside the city centre. It was easy to find using the Eden Court Theatre as a landmark. We received a warm welcome... More

I stayed here early on this week whilst doing the Kyle Line. I still dont get why Mrs Kentish Traveller has no interest in trains !. I booked the Ballifeary after reading the excellent reviews on TA and I just have to say I totally agree. Bill and Morag are lovely hosts, and the decor is exceptionally good, really in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as we were doing the Loch Ness Etape. Our double room was large and nicely decorated with all that we needed. One thing we did think was that the shower was a bit on the small side. The owners left an early breakfast for us which was appreciated. However we had a fabulous cooked... More

I was staying for one night whilst on business around the corner. Arrived on a bitterly cold night to a nice, warm, cosy house and room. Was given advise on where was good for an evening meal all within a reasonable walking distance. After a great nights sleep, Morags seemingly legendary fried breakfast was ready to set me up for...

We'd like to thank Morag and Bill for a lovely stay. Everything was great, service, breakfast, bed quality fixtures and fittings all excellent. They have a delightful guest lounge and well appointed dining room. The whole place is immaculately decorated and exceptionately clean. Breakfast was very good and cooked to order which isn't easy. There is plenty of onsite parking... More

On the morning of the marathon Morag had lovely porridge for us all, and served it early also, which was a lovely thing to... More

We stayed the weekend at Ballifeary during the Loch Ness marathon, the comfort, friendliness and service has been just amazing. Close to inverness this is quite possibly the most comfortable room I've ever stayed in. At 630 race morning breakfast and coffee was ready and waiting for us which really helped reduce the stress of the day. Our room was... More
