Our gratitude to Alison, for such a wonderful stay, her friendliness and warmth linked to the good work and professionalism, her appetising breakfasts and her welcoming home. More than recommendable, no doubt we will be back in our next trip to Inverness. Thank you, Maria and Jesus from Bilbao

Strayed this trip with our 8 month old twins. Alison was very welcoming and helpful! Can't wait to come back again! The guest house is very clean and comfortable and a great location for an easy walk to the town center. Highly recommend!

From the start it was great. We arrived a couple of hours early and where able to check in. Was a bonus. Great location, only walking distance to town. Alison was a great host. Would stay again but for longer. First time in Inverness and was very impressed.

If you're looking for a place to stay in Inverness, I would't pick anywhere bar Craig Villa. While my partner and I only had one night there, it was very memorable. Alison is the perfect host. Warm and engaging without being intrusive. The room has beautiful decor and is unbelievably homely. Better than any hotel room you could find, by... More
