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

We stayed a week ago at the Strathness house in Inverness and this hotel was one the best value during our tour of Scotland. We have been warmly greeted by the owner and our room was spotless, very quiet with a great view on the river Ness and the castle. The continental breakfast was plentiful. We could not ask for...

It is a B&B, so of course don't have all service a bigger hotel full of stars would have, but the hospitality of the owners will make you forget it. In fact I enjoyed small hotels and B&Bs in Europe much more than bigger, branded hotels. The rooms are good sized and have confortable beds, the decoration matches the style... More

We stayed at the Strathness House Guest House, for just one night, last weekend. A very warm welcome greeted us (after a long day shopping); our room (5) on the first floor was lovely, the bathrooms look very new (shower was great) and overall everything was spotless. A special mention for the bed - soooo very comfortable (as good as... More

We decided on an extra night away from home, after falling out over "diversions" we were on the point of going home when we popped in to see if there were any vacancies! Thankfully there was and we enjoyed a very comfortable night. The room was small but had great facilities so we were more than happy! Continental breakfast was... More
