We had a lovely one night stay at Strathness House, immaculate room with a filling continental breakfast. A friendly welcome when we arrived late at night. Ideal location for shops, restaurants and bars, great stay thank-you.

I stayed at Strathness House for a couple of nights on a business trip. My company uses this hotel often so I knew it was OK but not much more. I found Joan and Javed very hospitable and genuine, as if I was part of a select group rather than just another customer. Any request was attended to with no... More

I wanted a place to stay that had a pretty view and that didn't cost a fortune. The B&B was within walking distance from the train station (we each had a rolling suitcase and a backpack) and it's located right off the river. The owners of this place were the BEST! They made us feel so welcome...like we were VIP... More

Stayed at the Strathness House in August with my family. First of all, on arrival, the foyer is extremely cramped, then had to drag four large suitcases up two flights of stairs, albeit with some help. Anyhow, very disagreeable... When we got to the rooms, we were also very disappointed. They were extremely small, the beds uncomfortable and the bathrooms... More

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...
