Again another fantastic stay in a superb guest house. Outstanding value for money accommodation of a very high standard. Both Val and Paul (owners) ensure that your stay is pleasant with a genuine warm welcome to their home. A must for those looking for quality in accommodation and ease of access to the highlands of Scotland. Derek P (Perth)

The guest house was one of the best we have ever stayed in. We stayed here six days over the new year period. The attention to detail in the room was to a very high standard. The fridge in the room was a very good idea keeping our drinks cold while on our stay. Val and Paul were excellent hosts... More

My wife and I, along with our tow friends, stayed at Avalon Guest House for two nights to celebrate the new year celebrations in Inverness. Firstly, I can only state how fantastic a guest house this is, it would actually put to shame some hotels I have stayed in over the last few years. Val and Paul (the proprietors) are... More

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..

I stayed here for 1 night when I attended a friend's birthday party & was blown away by the attention to detail within the whole of the guest house itself as well as the room.

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
