Our room was spotless and sizeable. The amenities provided were excellent and the sherry was a lovely touch. It is about a 15-20 minute walk into Inverness town and about a... More

We sat in the lounge area whilst checking in which was lovely & for the residents use. I was worried about road noise initially as I'm a light sleeper but... More

This is definitely a more upmarket guest house. We were shown to our room at the top of the house by Val. It was very spacious with a lovely bathroom & immaculately clean.
