Spent one night during a quick trip through Scotland. Our room faced the river and it was peaceful, and beautiful. The staff was friendly and courteous. Breakfast was nice with several choices. Several good places to eat within walking distance. Was sad to only stay there one night. I would stay there again.

The best thing about this place was the staff. Joan and Javed (?) were very friendly and helpful. They made you feel looked after and cared about. I felt like I was visiting distant relatives, not staying at some stuffy hotel. Parking was no hassle -- we were very fortunate to always find a spot around the corner on the... More

After checking out the options on TripAdvisor, we decided to try Strathness House. Wanting to economize on budget and yet stay in a nice place, we took one of their family rooms and asked for an extra foldable bed to house our family of four. The owner, Joan was very helpful to accommodate our needs including a last minute change... More

Our room faced the river. It was so quiet, we could leave the window open at night. Joan, the innkeeper, was very nice and very helpful regarding dinner reservations. Many nice eating establishments within walking distance. The river has a lovely walking path on both sides.

We stayed for 1 night to have a quick look at Inverness. The hotel was a nice little place although upon arrival I was personally greeted by a very rude lady called Janet, I don't think she was a fan of Australians/Tourists? Although the manager made up for that by being a really nice guy. The room was spacious with... More

Situated right on the River Ness with just a short walk to the center of Inverness. Beautiful views of the river and the city from many of the rooms. The rooms are nicely appointed with comfortable beds. Breakfasts are very good with something for everyone. The lounge is a very nice place to relax if you arrive early!

Inverness is a very pretty town and Strathness house is in an ideal location. We had a river facing room and enjoyed our stay for 1 night. Wished we could have stayed longer. Javed and Joan were very gracious and took good care of us.

We were a bit surprised at how easy Strathness House was to find. Once there we were warmly welcomed by our host Javed. Our room overlooked the river and was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, great variety. Most sites withing walking distance.

Really enjoyed the service. Stayed 3 nights and had wonderful breakfasts + packaged cookies in the room every day. Found the room somewhat smaller than we expected and no elevator in the building. All in all a good experience - we may stay there if we end up in Inverness again.

What can one say about this guest house that hasn't already been said time and time again. It has been almost if not already 4 years since my last visit to Inverness and this quaint guest house on the River Ness. When I knew I was able to get away for a bit I knew my first choice was Inverness... More
