Three of us stayed at the Strathness House overnight, as we had a tour scheduled the following morning. It was the best bed-and-breakfast experience I've ever had! The proprietor and his wife ran the hotel like clockwork. From the warm greeting upon arrival, to our cozy room with all the necessary amenities, to the personable service at breakfast, the husband-and-wife... More

In July I went with my husband to Inverness for a bike trip. So we were traveling with our luggage AND one bicycle all the way from America. The bike bag is BIG! The hotel welcomes bikers and hikers. We were greeted by the owners who from the beginning helped us with whatever we needed. Even the last detail, with... More

Stayed for 2 nights, proprietor was helpful with dinner suggestions, routes of interest and getting some laundry done. Only downside, no haggis for breakfast. Beds and room was comfortable. They had hair dryers in the rooms and even gave tutoring on use of the electric showers! Lounge was nice, computer wifi dependable. If you plan on parking through the day,... More

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. To park all day or for longer periods than 2 hours.....there is a 24 hour car park next to us. So there is no need to feed the meter every 2 hours! More

This was an excellent hotel. It was conveniently located near restaurants and right across the road from the river....giving it excellent views. There is public parking a block down the road. Room was clean; breakfast was very good.

We recently spent three nights in Inverness tracking down family history on my husband's side of the family and we wisely chose Strathness House as our place to stay. This lovely old building has many rooms overlooking the river and the town itself and is very near to a variety of places to eat and things to see in town.... More

Found it difficult to rate this. We came to it after a number of Gogh class bnbs but in some ways it stood up well. Location could not be better with main st just across the bridge! River view from room excellent. Room and bathroom newly renovated and good. We found the bed small. Breakfast unimaginative but very well cooked!... More

Thank you for the recommendation. Unsure what you meant by " Gogh class bnbs", maybe you can explain? Also what you meant by "breakfast unimaginative", we do not make swan shaped tomatoes , pyramid scrambled eggs or funny shaped.......just a traditional , well cooked fresh breakfast. Real shame that you did not give the location full marks ! More

Pros: good central location; friendly staff; excellent breakfast. Cons: our room was a bit cramped (when you opened the bathroom door, it hit the end of the bed); bathroom was too dim (even with both lights on).

texavilla, Owner at Strathness House, responded to this review

We are really pleased that overall you seemed to have enjoyed your stay. I am not sure as to why you wanted to open the bathroom door at 90 degrees, normally you would open to exit or enter and this would not encroach on the bed space. We are trying to protect our environment, therefore all our guest house supports... More

We were given a warm welcome after a grueling rental car experience. The Victorian house is located in a beautiful part of Inverness. The owners were kind and engaging and helped carry our bags to and from our room. Our twin room,overlooking the river, was clean and very comfortable. We were amazed as there was an ice machine on our... More

I stayed for one night at Strathness House and received a very warm welcome. The bedroom facilities were excellent. The waitress breakfast service was really professional and friendly, whilst the owners catered for my specific needs. Well worth a visit. I will be staying again.

Traditional Scottish B&B. Friendly helpful staff. Easy to find right on the river /bridge with river views from front rooms.5-10 mins walk from main areas. 20 mins walk from station and next to cathederal and eden theatre. Only downside no parking which is £4.50 for 24h , but that too is 2 mins away.
