Our four person family stayed in this hotel for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The kids stayed in their own room while we were in a room just upstairs. The bathrooms were very clean, except for the fact that the water was very slow to drain from the shower, and thus spilled over at times. The hostess was very... More

We stayed only one night and were delighted by the proximity to the town. Our room overlooked the river and was perfectly adequate. Very friendly hostess, good breakfast. Furnishings are rather dated, but comfortable. Would definitely recommend

Hi Thank you for your review. The furnishings are old in some of the rooms,but I have tried to keep the charter of the building alive.Not all the rooms have old furnishings but it is hard to combine new with old. I am trying my best. I am so glad you got a river view room. I do hope you... More

I had a great tour of Scotland with my parents, and stayed in this Guest house as a base for daily travels to other destinations. Well kept and very near to Railway station and eating joints and market, its near to the river Ness too. You are lucky if you get a room facing Ness. The bath rooms are kept... More

Located just along the River Ness, it is very convenient to walk to the main markets along and across the river. You can walk to the railway station. Stroll on the river is a beatiful and unforgettable experience. Fiona and her teams take great care of this beautiful property. Neat rooms and bathrooms, good breakfast all add to its value.

This bed and breakfast is very conveniently located along the river Ness. We couldnot get a room facing the river. The best part is the immaculately clean bathrooms, though bedroom... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and we really enjoyed it. We had a great spacious family room, good size bathroom with bath (which my son loved!), good breakfast, friendly people, great view of the river all at a walking distance from the centre of Inverness. Fiona even dried our clothes!!!!! A huge thank you for everything:)

This is a B&B, not a hotel, and the 4 stars are thus for B&B standards. The location is great, right by the river and a 2-minutes walk to the town centre. The place is a bit outdated and there is a stench of cigarette smoke (probably from the last century). The bathroom was very basic and we had problems... More
