Was greeted as a long lost friend. The room was well equipped with all a traveler could want or need. Breakfast every morning was a surprise and always delicious. The grounds gave you comfort and allowed you to escape the wonderful and exciting city and chill by the beautiful pool. Will be back soon!

My wife and I stayed 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Couldn't fault a thing and Val and Paul are really friendly hosts who would do anything for you. Takes about 15 mins to walk to the town centre where there are ample good restaurants and bars. We would highly recommend The Avalon..

The highlight of our stay at the Avalon Guest House was definitely the breakfast. There is a huge range of foods to choose from on the buffet, as well as excellent cooked to order Scottish breakfast options. As shown by the photos on Avalon's website, the rooms are each carefully decorated according to a theme so if you like lots... More

The attention to detail in the bedroom and bathroom were something you would expect in a 5 star downtown big city hotel. The bathroom was right out of Home and Garden magazine. I took pictures for some ideas for our bathroom at home ! Both rooms were spotlessly clean. Breakfast had plenty of food available to serve yourself. You could... More

Avalon Guest House is easy to find with good parking, clean and welcoming. Lovely location within walking distance of Inverness down by the river. Breakfast adequate and porridge only available if you request on arrival which was not made clear. Made to feel very welcome by Paul.

Have tried many B and B establishments in Inverness over the last few years when there regularly from the Isle of Skye on business but Avalon is always our first choice. You have to be quick tho to book your room as they are VERY popular. Great hosts Val and Paul with a TOP breakfast as well !
