Although 10-15 minutes walk from the centre of Inverness, Trafford Bank is a fantastic place to stay. Lorraine is a wonderful host and has put a lot of thought into creating a beautiful home away from home for her travellers. The quality of furnishings, cleanliness and the 'little extras' were all of a very high standard. Loved the luxury toiletries... More

My partner and I were delighted with the facilities on offer at this beautiful boutique B&B. It's clear that Lorraine, the owner, has a background in interior design, with the tastefully decorated rooms and attention to detail - everything we could have possibly needed for a relaxing stay, along with a delicious breakfast. I particularly liked the fact that the... More

We stayed here in September and absolutely loved it. We arrived much later than we expected and Lorraine was very understanding and accommodating. Our room (Thistle) was luxurious. The bed was incredibly comfy and my husband loved the drink in the room! I fell pretty hard and bruised my tailbone the day prior to our arrival so the amazing bathtub... More

My first experience of the Trafford Bank was nearly 10 years ago and I have returned on several occasions. My friend and I have just returned from a 3 night break and as normal we loved it. I've stayed in many 5 star establishments around the globe and the Trafford has got to be in my top 5. Although classified... More

What a wonderful place to stay. Lorraine's attention to detail means guests have a first-class experience when staying at Trafford Bank. Comfy beds, beautiful linens, top-quality toiletries and a breakfast that was unrivaled in all of Scotland! Located in a quiet neighbourhood - only a short walk into the centre of town. I highly recommend this guest house.

Good shower with plenty of hot water. Large, delicious breakfasts served in a lovely sun room decorated with hand made dishes and furniture. Lorraine... More

I traveled to Scotland with my husband and parents and spent one night in Inverness. This was our first time staying at a B&B and it exceeded my expectations. We stayed in the Trafford Suite while my parents stayed in the Tartan Room. I only wished we had more time to take in all the amenities provided! We arrived late... More

I really can't say more than all the other respondents. This is the best B&B my wife and I have stayed in since we started to travel in 1975. Lorraine has decorated the house to make it attractive and comfortable with a definite warmth to the house. The breakfast was excellent. Lorraine advised us of a number of restaurants with... More
