This pace is incredible! simply put it is the best ! We brought our family there for a stop of our Scottish vacation and couldn't have been more pleased. The location is in walking distance to everything in Inverness. Right on the river scenic with Salmon fisherman IN the river trying their luck. St Andrew's Cathedral across the street. Lovely...

I had the pleasure of staying for 3 nights during the mod recently, and feel it is hard to do the place justice with words. The initial welcome was friendly, and informative, the reception area was bright and clean. When I went up to the room - opened the door to a very well appointed room with cracking views over...

I stayed one night at the Strathness House in September 2014. It was a beautiful old guest house and certainly worth the price - get a room with the river views, you won't regret it! The inn keepers were on the ball, they remember me throughout my stayed and ensured I was comfortable. They gave me suggestions on everything from... More

Our choir has just stayed here for four nights while competing at the Royal National Mòd 2014. Owners, Joan and Javed couldn’t have been more welcoming and hospitable. The guesthouse is extremely well situated with a beautiful outlook over the River Ness and centrally located within easy reach of the city restaurants and amenities. Rooms and en-suites were well-appointed and... More

We would have given this a top rating except we felt like the rooms could have used a few more touches. Incredibly clean, just needed a little more storage options and the bathroom was a little on the small side. The location is fabulous and the Innkeepers were very hospitable, helpful and accommodating. Right on the water--Our room had a... More

We stayed at the strathness this week and absolutely loved it. It is so conveniently located with fantastic views over the river and castle. We had originally booked a room without river views but when we arrived we were informed that a room with a view onto the river had become available due to a last minute cancellation for only...

Perfect location, charming hosts. The guest house us a little tired and old fashioned but it is a great place to spend the night. The owners a very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast plentiful. Good beds but if you are lucky enough to have a river view close the window to avoid late night revellers!

My wife and I enjoyed our stay immensely at this delightful Guesthouse. We were made most welcome by the attentive and obliging hosts. Our room, on the third floor (room 12) had exquisite views out over the River Ness and along the water front. The bedroom and ensuite facilities were beautifully appointed and extremely clean. The lounge on the ground... More

Five years ago we visited Inverness and stayed at Strathness House because, in part, of the good reviews on Tripadvisor. Our stay then was excellent and so we decided to stay there again. It was a good decision five years ago and it was the same today. Many positive comments have already been made by reviewers and I will simply... More

A good location beside the river with views of the castle and close to the town centre, parkland and interesting churches. Strathness House is very comfortable even if the family room is a little short of space and with not a lot of natural light. The proprietress was friendly and helpful. The location is a quiet riverside street, so no... More
