4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A lot of rules at the start, but they helped to keep the noise down so I suppose they were worth it. The front of the hotel is close to a busy road, but this wasn't a problem at night. Rooms were a bit OTT with the cushions and decor, but very comfortable, clean and well-appointed. Handy for the town... More

Overall a fantastic experience! Homeowners were very friendly and kept their house very clean. I have stayed in many B&B's over the years and Avalon is at the top of my list. Location is just under a mile into town so we walked in. We would absolutely stay again!

Avalon is honestly better than 95% of the hotels out there. Of all the places we stayed during our Europe trip these past couple of weeks, this B&B offered the best service and stay. We had room 6 and it was spotless and very well decorated. It was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom is modern and nice.... More

Absolutely wonderful B and B . Clean well appointed rooms. Loved the sherry on arrival.the scotish breakfast was fantastic. Great home base for traveling the northern region.short walking distance to down town inverness and close to the bus and train stations for easy tours further north and down south a ways.would stay here again if coming into inverness.

Val showed us around and pointed out things to do and places to eat before showing us to our room. Once inside we were told we had complimentary sherry and a mini fridge for storing our cold...
