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

At the end of the rows of hotels along the river Ness is the Strathness House and what a fantastic location! The view of the castle and river was simply magical at night from our room on the 3rd floor. The B&B was just what we expected, lovely and charming. + The shower was super-hot, which was wonderful, especially after... More

Charming from the outside... but, looks can be deceiving. Since we only saw our room, I cannot address the entirety of the B&B. Room was dilapidated... Bed was like a plank of wood. Our room was on the third floor (no lift). So once we got up there it was pretty disappointing to find they don't even supply a bottle... More

We are just back from a weekend in the Scottish highlands and stayed at this guest house for 1 night (30th august) - This place is first class in all the right ways, although we were only there for one night we experienced a very nice balance of friendliness with professionalism, the guest house is beautifully presented in terms of...

Arrived fairly late on a Saturday to a very friendly reception. Clean and high standard rooms, good wifi and quiet all night. Slept very well in a comfortable bed with a great view over the Ness. Would definitely recommend and will come back here on my next visit.

My husband and I stayed here for four nights and we would have liked to have stayed longer as it is such a lovely place. Joan and Javed went out of their way to make us feel welcome and gave us tips on where to eat and places to visit. Our room had a wonderful view overlooking the river and... More

Our family of 4 stayed here in July and thoroughly enjoyed this excellent B&B. We took 2 rooms and the one facing the river was nicer.The location next to the river makes for great walks and is within walking distance to pretty much everything. Javed & Joan are great hosts. They serve a very good breakfast and are very patient... More

Spent 1 night here on my trip to the distilleries around Inverness and found that the experience is fabulous! Amazing view looking over to the river where you can hear the little sound of water - very peace of mind indeed! Lovely space beside the window where you can sit back on a chair with a warm tea & oat... More

Firstly, the people at this B&B are excellent, very charming and helpful. The location is great too. They serve a good breakfast and the rooms are fine (a little small but fine). The thing that sets this place apart is Javid. He is a lovely bloke and full of cheery greetings and helpful advice.

Very friendly staff, nice and clean, good breakfast. Comfortable room. Javed was VERY helpful and kind. He has a great empathy with guests (like us) who arrive with the blank faces of Strangers in a Strange Land, and explained the workings of the shower (a first for us in the Kingdom of Weird (to us) Plumbing!). He gave directions to... More
