We stayed here for 2 nights and was made to feel very welcome. Bill and Morag were perfect hosts and greeted us warmly. Morag gave us a map of Inverness and advised on the best places to visit. They had information on every aspect of Inverness. We looked through their folders of activities to plan our days and decide upon... More

Lovely 2 night stay in Inverness with easy access to highlands. Great localtion, comfortable rooms and varied and tasty breakfasts. Friendly hosts and short walk to main town. Nice and close to airport and main transport systems. Enjoyed our stay thoroughly.

I know when I see reviews on Tripadvisor like the ones given by previous guests of the Ballifeary Guest House I won't be disappointed and, of course, I wasn't. I travelled with a friend and from pulling up in the spacious car park to heading home we had a wonderful time. We were greeted by Bill who carried our bags... More

The Ballifeary Guest House is a real gem. We were greeted by Bill on our arrival and he helped us with our luggage to the 2nd floor. He gave us the option of two twin rooms which was unexpected and very much appreciated. One room had a walk in shower while the other had a beautiful, deep bathtub with attached... More

Thank you Morag and Bill for a lovely stay. Everything was great, service, breakfast, bed quality fixtures and fittings all excellent. The house is very well situated, only a 10 minute walk from the city center. The welcome we got was so friendly, it made you feel quite at home. The room and common areas was clean, well decorated and... More

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...
