This was our third time at the Strathness - and never fails to impress!! Joan and Javed are the perfect hosts - nothing too much trouble! Rooms are spotlessly clean - great en-suites with shower you don't want to come out of!! Room overlooked the river - could sit all day and watch the world go by! Breakfast excellent -... More

My husband and I stayed at Strathness House for 2 nights this week, and we absolutely loved it! The room was very comfortable, quiet, beautifully decorated, and had a lovely view of the River Ness! Breakfast was wonderful, and Joan & Javed were extremely helpful with giving advice on where to visit in Scotland (we had a couple of days... More

We chanced upon Strathness House and are so glad that we did. Initially we planned on one night but stayed three. Our room was lovely with a view over the river to the castle. It was comfortable, clean and warm with a great ensuite bathroom - lots of hot water and big fluffy towels. I especially enjoyed the downstairs guest... More

I stayed for a night at the excellent Strathness House in Inverness on a recent business trip.. the hotel was spotlessly clean and tidy, everything just as it should be. I was warmly welcomed in to the hotel, and taken to my room and shown how everything worked and where everything was located; much nicer than just being told which... More

We booked 3 double rooms and a single for one night. It was a surprise for my mother & father in law. The owner was helpful & assisted us well in our surprise. The rooms were spotless, comfortable with lovely views off the river. The bathrooms have excellent showers and plenty of toiletries. Irons & hair dryers were supplied in... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Strathness House. It was great value for a clean and centrally located guest house in a historic building with refurbished bathrooms. Great full Scottish Breakfast included.

(May have already posted a review - apologies if I have, lol) This is a bit of a long overdue review - me and my boyfriend stayed here during the Valentine's weekend (February 14-16th). We fancied a wee weekend away from where we live and so thought Inverness would be a nice place to stay. After browsing hotels in the... More

Strathness House is located just over the river in a perfect location for the train, shops and theatre. We booked a last minute stay through booking.com and arrived to a very friendly welcome. We paid extra for the room, the view was lovely, however it wasn't as big as some of the others but extremely comfortable for our overnight stay.... More

We stayed here one night and we received a very warm welcome when we arrived. We were shown to our room and were given some good tips as to where to go for dinner. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The bathroom was a bit small, but how much time do you spend there anyway? We had a room... More

My husband and I stayed at Strathness House during our honeymoon on our last night in Inverness and wish we could have stayed longer. The hospitality was fantastic as was the room and view (fantastic view overlooking the river). We had to leave for the airport very early in the morning so missed breakfast, but the owner graciously packed us... More
