It's so great to see Dugie and Fiona again. The family room didn't disappoint and the food is as wonderful as always. I'm so glad to be with our friends again. The chats and jokes always makes our stay that more fun.

Spent 2 nights at Acorn House in Inverness during our 19 day driving trip across Scotland. Our hosts were very nice and served what were probably the best breakfasts during our entire vacation. I suggest trying the porridge in addition to whatever else you are eating. Parking was available in the rear and it's an easy walk into town for... More

My family and I stayed overnight in Acorn House after finishing the Great Glen Way. The bedrooms are very well equipped and had great beds. The hosts were very welcoming and the breakfast was huge and quite delicious. Even though we didn't know to pre-reserve the sauna, our host provided a foot soaker which was amazing after the walk. It... More

I really dislike giving any reviews other than 4s and 5s, and but I do not think this B&B qualifies for above average. The owners are very sweet, so I only have comments about the B&B itself. One thing I will say, the location is great. It is about a slow 10 minute walk to the center of Inverness, so... More

Dear Lana, if you were in room 4 that is a new mattress and there is also a double and a single bed in that room as room 4 is the only room above the kitchen, As to smoking some of the guests smoke going up the driveway and room 4 is also above the drive way, I myself smoke... More

Acorn Guest House is perfectly located to enjoy all things Inverness! Our Stewart guest room was a large room with several windows that opened, to our delight. Lots of natural sunlight, comfy furnishings including an extra twin bed and a comfortable sofa for TV viewing at the end of an exciting day. And most importantly, a very comfortable 5 star... More

This is a charming B&B within easy walking distance of Inverness City Center but located on a side street that is quiet and peaceful. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast cook is the husband and went well above and beyond what was expected to make sure we enjoyed our meal. The owners are fans of Sottish Terriers... More

Arrived around 6pm, as we stopped at The Castle pub first for a pint after completing our walk. Warm welcome from the owner and everything explained to us. We were taken to our rooms next door to each other as there were three of us. Good sized rooms with tea / coffee making facilities etc. We all had a good... More

Great spring board for Inverness and beyond. I stayed in a well appointed, very comfortable room for a great price, especially factoring in the exemplary hospitality from the owner Dougie and his formidable but delicious Scottish fry up (all included)! I wish I'd stayed longer...

This house in a pretty good spot, just a 5-minute walk from downtown Inverness. This house is definitely older and the floors squeak VERY loudly. If you have a room near the stairs and there are any late night returning guests, you will hear them. The rooms had a faint smell of cigarette smoke which emanated from the hosts' quarters... More

Thank you for your review without these we are unable to improve our business. However we would like to point out that the hosts dont smoke and any faint smell would come from out side as people (Guests) smoke in the Driveway and if your room window was open you may get a faint whif rising from the drive way,...
