I have been returning to this warm, friendly, welcoming and very comfortable accommodation for at least 9 years for working visits to Inverness as I have felt so content here. The rooms are large with excellent en-suite, tv and refreshment facilities including charming individual touches making it feel more special than a standard hotel room. The beds are very comfortable... More

We spent two nights in a very comfortable room in this lovely B&B. It is a 5 minute walk to the train station and the center of town and a 2 minute walk to the river where the scenery and walking paths are lovely. Allison was a friendly, welcoming hostess who even made dinner reservations for us each night. We... More

Alison is a very welcoming and charming host.I stayed in a single room which was spacious enough,spotlessly clean and it has the usual amenities (flatscren-tv,tea and coffee making... More

We found Craig Villa after staying in another guest house which was substandard. It was so refreshing to walk in to the comfortable entryway and be greeted by Allison, the very sociable and welcoming proprietress. We stayed one night before traveling further north i Scotland, but decided to come back for a second night on our way back because it... More

Great place, great location and very clean. The room was nice and cozy. Alison, the proprietor of the place was very personable; she introduced us to haggis at breakfast, Scotland's national dish? which was delicious. All together, great place, great breakfast. I would stay there again when I'm in Inverness.

This is a great B&B just a 5-10 min walk from the city centre. The owner, Alison, is very nice and I'm told by my travelmates that the breakfast was perfect (I'm not the early breakfast type). I had the single room on the second floor which has no en-suite bathroom, but I had my own private and very spacious... More

We had a warm welcome from owner Alison and a bright, clean, comfortable room for our 4 day stay earlier this month. Choice of good breakfasts cooked to order and served with a smile. Great location for easy walking to see Inverness. Excellent value for money.

Craig Villa is exactly what you want in a qualiy b&b. Great location, two blocks from thr River Ness, restauraants and shops. For a house that's over 100 years old, the place is immaculate, comfortable and provides a good shower a pleasant bedroom and most of all, a charming and welcoming host. I would definitely stay there again.
