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

The first thing you notice about Avalon is it is clean. No it's not - it's immaculate. The rooms have all you need - comfortable beds, superb plumbing with first class fittings. The Wi-Fi works and everything seems to be thought of. Paul and Val make you very welcome - they are committed to making you feel at home. The... More

To call Avalon a Guest House does not do it full justice. It is much more a home from home with first rate, so friendly service and breakfast. There are many "little" touches which make it a really great place to stay. If you are going to Inverness, look no further.

My family booked 4 rooms at the Avalon Guest House in Inverness. What a great place to stay. Very comfortable - attention to creating a homely atmosphere was fantastic. This clean and comfortable B & B was modern but retained a warm and welcoming feeling. I had a double room with an adjoining bathroom which, fortunately, I did not have... More

Would stay again without hesitation! Attention to detail, clean & comfortable! Nicely decorated with an updated and more modern feel, yet homey and very cozy. Good location, close to many area sites and activities. Wonderful breakfast as well. Perfect!

The property is well located just a small walk away from the riverside and the local pubs. Val and Paul played lovely hosts by helping us with a good dine out selection and serving us a gorgeous breakfast in the morning. Their rooms are well designed and small details are very well taken care of. Loved my stay here. If... More
