We loved the Strathness. We had a room overlooking the River and it was lovely. The room was spacious, clean and the beds were the most comfortable during our stay in Scotland. The location is convenient to everything and yet it was very quiet. Javid and the staff are most gracious and helpful. We would defintely stay here again.

We did a 10 day trip travelling around Scotland and this was truely the best place we stayed! Everyone was so welcoming, warm and friendly. The rooms were large and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious! We will definitely go back and stay for more than one night.

My husband and stayed at Strathness House from July 25-28, 2011. Innkeepers Joan, Javed and their girls were wonderful hosts. (I have occasionally traveled alone as a single woman. This is a place I would feel VERY COMFORTABLE visiting alone.) The common room off the front lobby is a nice place for people to congregate. We arrived at Strathness House... More

Having read the reviews on tripadvisor we booked by phone the day before we were due to arrive. We were checked in by Joan who made us very welcome and was apologetic that there were no river view rooms available. The room we got was perfect, spotlessly clean, very comfortable bed, good sized shower room for a city hotel, very... More

I stayed at Strathness for 6 days in May as I was teaching a university study abroad course. I was very busy with work and found Strathness to be an oasis. The rooms are spotless and well appointed, the owners are friendly and helpful -- but never intrusive -- and the dining and cleaning staff excellent. The location is ideal... More

Strathness House is bright and cheerful even when the sun is not shining! Lovely rooms, and up to date bathrooms (our room even had a towel warmer). The wi fi really is free and works well in the rooms (unlike other places we stayed).The owners always went out of their way to be helpful. The location was perfect for us... More

We spent two nights here at a cost of £86 per night B&B in a nice room with a view over the river. Joan & Javed were very friendly & very helpful, breakfast was excellent. We had to leave before breakfast on our 2nd night so they gave us a packed breakfast to take with us. The address is about... More

We stayed here recently and absolutely loved it. The hosts made sure we had everything and gave us some very helpful tips and maps to help us make the most of our visit. The rooms are all spacious, clean and the river facing rooms have fantastic views. We would definitely recommend Strathness House to anyone visiting Inverness.
