Would highly recommend staying here. Away for work for a night, very good standard of room, good breakfast. Very nice b&b, would certainly come again, hopefully for a longer stay next time. Good walk into town.

I'm in hotels and B&B every week, this place makes the top five. A very warm welcome from a great host, in a warm, clean and very comfortable room. Very little noise around and a pleasant, short walk into the city centre. Breakfast was made to order and was excellent, would return for business and, all importantly, pleasure.

I recently stayed at the Gatehouse with my partner as we had a wedding in inverness. I can honestly say this is one of the best places I have stayed in for some time. The room was fantastic, the breakfast superb and the owners were so friendly. The location was about ten mins walk into town and was situated in... More

We stayed at the Gate House for 2 nights in early September 2014. Our bathroom was accessed from the hallway but it was ours alone. Pros: comfortable beds, quiet area, hosts very friendly and helpful, delicious breakfast Cons: a decent walk from town (.8 mile?), no sitting area in the room, not much nearby Note: arrival time starts at 3:30...

We were only in Inverness for one night, but our stay in the Gate House was lovely! It's situated just a short, 15 minute walk from downtown, so we had easy access to everything. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed, and Ranald made a fantastic breakfast!

This lovely B&B is hosted by Ronald (dry sense of humour and very friendly) and Caroline (who cooks the best bacon ever)! Lovely rooms, exceptionally clean, delicious breakfast, good location and very quiet for a good nights sleep. Good restaurants within walking distance. Thanks for a great night.

The rooms were tidy and nice. It is located in walking distance to the town center. We had some issues with hot water and water pressure in our room and generally didn't feel very welcome in comparison to other B&B we stayed at... The breakfast was ok - not a lot and not much choice though. I did like the... More

Great spot, nice place, excellent breakfast with good variety, bath was adjacent to room but private, close to centre of Inverness - friendly hosts. Good spot to stay for visiting local sites like Fort George, Culloden battlefield, & Urqhart Castle.

We spent one night here on a week touring around Scotland. The Gate House was the nicest of all of the places we stayed. Our double room at the front of the house was spacious and we had a good nights sleep. The full breakfast was very nice. There is ample parking and we found Caroline and Ranald to be... More

The Gate House was beautifully decorated, and very clean. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was spacious. Breakfast was delicious. Location is good- within walking distance to the city centre. Very nice stay overall.
