First, the manager of this guest house is not rude (as per another review). We found her business-like but pleasant. This place is sparkling clean and the breakfast (which costs seperate from the room rate) was delicious. But our room on the top floor (no lift) was incredibly spartan--the decor was depressingly bare. In fact, the room had an unfinished... More

Yeah, only if you stand one at a time at the not exactly panoramic size picturesque window. When asked, the lady said "we don't have to specify the size of the aperture purporting to be a picturesque window" Medieval... More

We visited this guest house and found it to be excellent, the staff were very pleasant and helpful, the room was clean and tidy, the location is amazing being next to the river and very close to the City centre, the breakfast was excellent, we would recommend this guest house and would definitely like to stay here again.

I found the location, room size and facilities very good... right by the river with a view of the bridge, river and castle... Breakfast was also good.. However the host..who goes by the name Janice is probably one of the rudest woman i have ever met in Inverness... we reached around 9:30pm at the hotel to check in and rang... More

Great location directly across from the castle on the River Ness immediately next door to a Starbucks. I love my morning coffee. No meal plan included (as advertised) and the meal you could buy was expensive. Room was large and comfortable, shower was excellent, beds were comfortable, old stately house. The lady who ran it was friendly, talkative and helpful.

We spent a night here whilst in Inverness for a family gathering. We were housed in the annexe at the rear. Nice clean rooms (my wife used to be a domestic in a 5* hotel so is a stickler) really comfy beds and a good sized ensuite with the most poerful shower I have ever used!

The second worst place I've ever stayed in! Absolutely filthy, cheap breakfast, we even got slagged for asking some more toast... Even menus were dirty, what a disgusting place! There were some pills in our bathroom which was already in some state of crumbling, and we had to put the remote control into a plastic bag because it was so... More

Winston Guest House was a really nice place to stay! The view was great and the staff were incredible. You couldn't pick a better location, and the pricing was really reasonable. A couple of negatives - the internet was spotty, the room was small/averge, and the toilet was disinclined to flush... But these ended up being relatively small complaints since... More

Very central and handy for the town centre and Eden Court Theatre. Very friendly and reasonably priced. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting the Highland capital for business or pleasure. Excellent

Clean, neat,straightforward accommodation close to everything, breakfast included, reasonable prices. Very handy for both Eden Court and the town centre. Wifi in every room, quiet location considering it's right by the ness. I'd recommend it.
