2 nights in mid-October, 2015. We lucked-out finding this great place to stay. Comfortable and close to everything. We walked everywhere. Our new preferred place when we get to Inverness. A large B&B not pretending to be a hotel. They serve breakfast but no other meals. Unfortunately, nether do they have an elevator. I was told this was impossible because... More

This is a good B&B with a good location along the Ness river. The owner greeted us at the door, helped with our luggage and offered us a map of Inverness and marked down his favorite nearby restaurants and pubs. The room and bathroom was a little small for this 6'5 American, but by European standards it was just fine.... More

I was originally recommended Strathness House by my colleagues as an accomodation option during business trips to Inverness and still stay there on this basis on subsequent visits. People always talk of "Home away from Home" but in this case it feels true - so much so that it would be my preferred place to stay should I be spending... More

Located directly opposite the river about a 5 minute walk from the center of town this guest house provides a good balance between convenience and quiet. The common areas are very nice, particularly the larger than average guest lounge. Breakfast is the typical range of cold and hot items. My room was nice but the bath was small (even by... More

Clean , breakfast fine, but room was barely big enough to turn around in. But expected more for the 100 pounds. My husband and I had to take turns moving around in the room because there was not enough space for 2 people and 2 suitcases. We were on the top floor so it was a hike with the luggage.... More

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
