This is a wonderful B&B. Val and Paul have done an excellent job at making this feel like home. Upon arrival, my wife and I were greeted by Val and Paul, who quickly engaged in conversation and went out of their way to make recommendations for dining and attractions (live music at the Hootananny). The room was immaculate and comfortable,... More

This is a gem and myself and my partner stayed here while going to belladrum. The ace is spotless and rooms are very nice. The owners are lovely we will be going back and recommend his guest house to everyone. Plus the breakfast was lovely and off road parking was very good also.

From the moment we walked in the door, Val greeted us and made us very welcome, pointing out where to go for meals in Inverness as well as the local sites. Our room was immaculate and reflected Val's artistic flair. Its the little things that set this place apart from the... More

A beautiful little guest house. Val and Paul were just lovely and very welcoming. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Just great. Free parking on site was an added bonus.

Wanted to experience the Loch Ness and the Highlands and chose this B and B to stay after reading other reviews. It was beyond expectations. Paul and Val were wonderful hosts! Not only was our room clean and tastefully decorated (we stayed in the "Nessie Room"), it had everything we needed, including a decanter of sherry! The Avalon is an... More

We stayed overnight at Avalon, and could easily have stayed a week! Val and Paul welcome you into their home as valued guests, making you feel immediately comfortable. The room we stayed in was large, with nice touches such as complimentary sherry, and a small fridge for the use of guests. The room was nicely furnished, with a most comfortable... More

My nephew and I traveled throughout the Highlands in early July and this was by far the nicest place we stayed! The place is immaculately clean, there is abundant parking, and it is easy to find. It was a great jumping off place to get to Loch Ness and Culloden! Paul and Val do everything they can to make you... More

I stayed for a week and found little to fault and much to praise in this Guest House. Paul and Val were very welcoming and throughout the stay were keen to help in any way possible to make my stay comfortable. I was staying on my own and had a very large double room which was very clean, well-furnished and... More

This review is written on behalf of myself and husband. Excellent accommodation, as good as any 5 star hotel we have stayed in. Spotlessly clean, very tastefully appointed with everything you could wish for. Val and Paul made us feel extremely welcome and at home, the food, beds, bathrooms etc etc was all first class. I required gluten free food,... More
