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.

We were quickly in & out of Inverness for one night, and The Gate House was an ideal bed and breakfast experience and host for our trip. Located just a little over a mile from the city center of Inverness, it was easy to walk or drive. Additionally, there were other restaurants/pubs closer as another option too. We had a... More

We booked last minute for a one night stay and got the last room which was a twin. The room was lovely, nice and clean with comfortable bed. Location was a 15 minute walk into town centre. Breakfast was tasty too. Overall a great little guest house for a stay in Inverness at a reasonable price :-)

Stayed one night whilst driving through to the Fort William. We had a warm welcome and our room was lovely with a very enjoyable breakfast in the morning - loved the fresh linen napkins and tablecloth and tartan china! Took their advice to have dinner in a nearby hotel, walking distance and then had a very restful, quiet sleep that... More

I am sorry that you were unable to stay with us on the night you had booked, it is clearly stated on our website that our check in time is after 3.30pm. I spoke with you twice prior to your arrival and on no occasion was 2pm mentioned as I am unable to be at the house at that time.... More

After staying elsewhere in an old favourite of ours, all I can say is oh dear never ever again. Thank goodness it was only for the one night. We arrived after 3.30pm as instructed and were met by Caroline who appeared a bit frosty, she showed us our room and left after we had asked for recommendations on where to... More

We stayed at The Gatehouse during a tour of Scotland and we impressed with not only the size of the B&B but also the privacy of it. Our room was decorated nicely and very comfortable. The en-suite was clean and updated with nice upgrades (heated towel warmer). The entrance was separate from the main home and we felt like we... More

After wincing at the prices of hotels in the area during the tourist season, I cast my net wider and found this wonderful little guest house just 15 mins walk from the town centre. The hosts were welcoming and the accommodation was really nice. Room 3. It was in great condition, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was just right with... More
