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,...

My wife and I spent an absolutely wonderful week at the Acorn House in September, 2014. We were in Inverness for the World Masters Highland games. The owners, Dugie and Fiona are warm and delightful, we felt like family in the first 10 minutes. The house is cozy with very clean, spacious bedrooms and en suite baths. We had full... More

The Acorn was the first B&B we stayed on this trip to Scotland and set the standard. A really nice home with rich décor and comfortable rooms and beds. Glad we stayed 2 nights to enjoy it fully! The lounge was a nice place to sit and relax. The breakfasts were "full", had to ask to Duggie to ease back... More

Such a warm and welcoming house! Dugie and Fiona (and Jimmy) were the perfect hosts! Loved the conversations, hearty breakfasts, and accommodations! Due to many travels throughout Scotland, we were welcomed WAY past our initial check-in and WAY TO EARLY departure times! I HIGHLY recommend staying with Dugie and Fiona!

Nicely appointed B&B a short walk from downtown. It was a great place to stop over on our trip through Scotland. The room was clean, the beds comfortable, and the hosts very pleasant. It does have off street parking.

We chose Acorn guest House for it's location. It was a good choice as the walk into city center was only 5-10 min. We felt completely safe at night walking back in the dark. The house is very nice and comfortable with secure onsite parking.....a big plus! Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice. Would recommend a stay here.
