I spent a long time looking at reviews of places to stay in Inverness, and finding Strathness was worth all the time it took. Easy walk from the station, right on the river bank opposite the castle and next to the cathedral made this a great find. Nice friendly and efficient welcome, spotlessly clean, good shower and comfortable bed, good... More

I'm sorry that my friend and I only got to stay one night in this charming little hotel. While the furnishings could use an upgrade, I do think that just ads the the homey charm. We were given a room with a great view of the River Ness, and it was so quiet. The included breakfast is absolutely delicious (although... More

This hotel could not be better placed. It stands beside the river and you can ask for a river, castle or church view - at no extra cost! There was a beautiful resident's lounge with what looked like leather Chesterfields, although we didn't actually go in there. It was non-smoking throughout. The room was large enough for us, with a... More

Back in Inverness for a couple of nights this week and chose to stay here again. Had room 1 with great view of castle / river. Room very clean and well equipped. Excellent lounge for guests too and very tasty breakfast cooked to order. No hesitation in recommending Strathness if you are in the area.

Had a lovely stay of a couple of nights at Strathness House while visiting Inverness this week. The place is immaculate and beautiful, we had room 4 which was at the back that was clean, comfortable and warm. Breakfast was good. The rooms are very reasonably priced, and if we ever go to Inverness again we'd stay there again. Lovely... More

Its classified in the Bed & Breakfast section so why isnt breakfast included? So what if we got it for the cheapest price from Trip Advisor, so what if it doesnt actually mention the word Breakfast in the listing (We booked two other B&Bs this week who didnt mention this and Breakfast WAS included). Bed & Breakfast means Bed AND... More

We needed a hotel at short notice and this one was great. It was in an ideal location right on the river Ness and easily walkable into town and to the train station. It was warm and had an extensive and tasty choice for breakfast. It was great value and we were made to feel very welcome.

I stay in Inverness on business from time to time and have now found a reliable place to stay. This is top class. Even on my second stay I was remembered and indeed upgraded - thanks. This is everything the business traveler would want, quiet, comfortable. central, and the hosts are on the ball. I won't always look forward to... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the B&B for one night and it was awesome! We were already travelling for 10 day and we needed to have our clothes washed. The lady that runs the B&B offered to do that and our clothes were ready in 2 hours! Soft and smelling very good and for a excellent price! Our room... More
