Our family (parents and two adult children) truly enjoyed our stay at Birchwood. Jean was a wonderful hostess who greeted us with a very warm welcome. We were treated to a wonderful continental breakfast which featured different items on each of our two mornings. We visited the Culloden Battlefield (a wonderful exhibit and GPS run audio guide...highly recommend this for... More

Very comfortable say in this B&B. Jean is fabulous with people, very helpful and informative. The dining room was well appointed with a beautiful view of the water. I can't say enough about how Jean goes out of her way to make people feel "at home". We loved our stay here and you will too!!!!

As a family of 5, I was unsure about a B&B stay, but was pleasantly surprised when we arrived a the Birchwood Guest House. Jean greeted us as if we were old friends and that is how we felt for the entire stay. She is incredibly affable and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation, food and her local advice...

I booked the birchwood guesthouse many months ago after I decided to run the Loch Ness marathon. I booked the family room as my husband and 2 kids (14 & 10) were joining me. I had many email exchanges with Jean, the owner regarding the room, payment etc and there was always a quick response. Jean couldn't have been more... More

We stayed in different b&bs during our trip to Scotland and we were not very satisfied with our experience at Birchwood guesthouse. We thought we were in a motel, with the rooms aligned along the corridor. We were in the family room which was clean but without any charm nor homey atmosphere. In the breakfast room, you have to help... More

However on occasion some guests seem to be a little unsure what to expect, or what kind of establishment and room they are booking. The property and all rooms are clearly described on all websites we display on, as... More

A family focused B & B with two great people genuinely concerned for their guests. We were well looked after having arrived in the rain after getting lost! And Jean made sure we settled into our room. A great full breakfast - Donnie does the cooking. Nice lounge/dining area with a view. If you go away unsatisfied you obviously didn't... More

We stayed in the family room which was very comfortable and spacious. Donnie and Jean are very welcoming and friendly hosts making our stay very relaxing, nothing was too much trouble. We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone looking for accommodation in Inverness, our family will certainly use it again.

We, a family of 2 adults and 2 children aged 13 and 17, booked this B&B for 1 night, via the internet the day prior to our arrival, as part of our Scottish driving tour as it was close to Loch Ness. It was easy to find and we had a very warm welcome from Jean and Ronnie on our... More

The couple that ownes the B&B are very friendly and especially the man are extremely helpful. He drove us to see tourist attractions and all the way to the bus station when we left. Supernice!!! The room and Beds are standard but still good. The breakfast are ok, But the coffee were instant coffe. Could be better.
