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 stayed here for 7 nights. We were welcomed by Alison the owner with a smile....nothing was too much trouble....our room was very comfortable and cosy. The Craig Villa is in an ideal location for visiting the centre of Inverness and the surrounding areas especially the Lochs and Glens of Bonnie Scotland.. I definitely recommend trying Alison's Highland Breakfast and... 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.

We chose this property due to its 5 star rating and location. Upon arrival we were given a tight room that looked to be furnished in the 1970's. The bath was extremely tight, with barely enough room for toilet, sink and shower. My wife also noticed that dust covered much of the room and the ceiling vent was coated with... More

Hi, The use of the word ‘truth’ in the title of this review is a little unsettling as it appears to covey that we are deliberately misleading people with claims to be a 5-star establishment. We have never been or (more importantly) never claimed to be 5-star accredited. The ‘truth’ is we do hold an overall rating of 5 on... More

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
