I booked Inverglen Guest house on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews and because I wanted one with wi-fi throughout. I was not disappointed and can now join the ranks of all of those who can highly recommend this B&B. It is simply excellent in every way and reflects the thought and care that has been taken by its owners John... More

I have stayed twice now at the Inverglen and both times Susan and John have ensured a warm welcome with coffee and homemade cake on arrival, even though this was quite late in the evening! The two rooms I have stayed in were very comfortable, spotlessly clean and well equiped. Breakfast is great, with a good selection of freshly cooked... More

I stayed 6 nights at Inverglen Guest House. On arrival I was welcomed by John, the welcome was warm and friendly. I was shown to the guest lounge where tea and Susan's delicious home made baking was enjoyed. I then met Susan who was also friendly and welcoming. John gave me a map of Inverness and if I needed to... More

A great B&B ! Located in a small quiet street. We got the family room which was very spacious, and comfortable. The real gem was the amazing shower - the best we had in Scotland !! All the amenities were of high quality, which gave a general feeling of a modern hotel. Our hosts were kind and helpful, and had... More

I discovered on arrival that I was the only guest, but found myself quickly at ease with John & Susan. I don't always feel comfortable with 1-to-1 attention from a Photo tutor, but soon realized how privileged I was to have as much help as I got. In a short time John has acquainted himself with the beautiful Highlands, and... More

This review is a long time coming as we had the pleasure to stay here back in October. While our stay got off to a less than ideal start, due to a mixup on arrival date, John and Susan more than made up for any lost time. They truly provide a first class B&B experience through cozy and inviting living... More

John and Susan took care of us when we travelled to see Loch Ness Monster (but couldn't) and the breakfast was excellent! It was our first try at Black Pudding and we are glad we tried it with Susan's as my hubby loved it to bits. I loved their chocolate spread that's REAL chocolate and not Nutella instead. The room...

Thank you for your review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry that Nessie was being so elusive. Maybe if you return she (we think Nessie is a girl) will make an appearance for you. Once again Susan's breakfasts have been singled out for special praise.

The Inverglen Guest House is ideally located on a quiet residential street within easy walking distance to downtown Inverness. John and Susan were friendly and gracious hosts, helping us with dinner reservations and ideas for what to see on a cold and rainy December day. Our twin room was adequate, clean and well-stocked with amenities, but somewhat worn and would... More

Thank you for you review. It is most appreciated. Even on a cold wet day there are still some good things to see and do in and around Inverness and we were delighted to help out with suggestions.
