We stayed here for four nights at the end of June. The owners, Colin and Wilma couldn't have been more friendly and everything we needed was provided. we were too late to book the en-suite guest room but the bathroom was nearby, spacious and immaculate. Great breakfasts too with yummy fruit salad and cereal as well as a choice of... More

We stayed for a two day summit and as part of the Expo. Carbisdale was very pleasant to stay in, on a quiet street but only a couple of minutes walk into town. The rooms were quiet too, and the service was very good, the cooked breakfast was delicious with perfect poached eggs!

My wife and I stayed at Carbisdale on our 1st overseas trip in 2007, and we have been back to Carbisdale 2 times since. Wilma & Colin are kind and welcoming hosts, and have made our stay delightful each time. I have read other posts about it being nothing special and ordinary, but I am afraid those guests must have...

To avoid for single person as the price is almost the same as for a couple in B&B, but I don't eat for 2. 66 pounds for a single in B&B and 68 for a couple in B&B. I asked why but no other answer than : "it is the price". The room for this price was really disappointing, old... More

We stayed 2 nights there. Ideal location in the center of Inverness, room was clean but only one bathroom, in which the only toilet of the house is located, for the all guests (8 when we stayed there). However the shower is great. Breakfast is good without being extraordinary. Hosts were nice and polite but not much more.

We've been to Carbisdale a few times and alwasy try to book it when we know we're going to Inverness. The house is a traditional Inverness red-stone building, and the garden delightful.

We‘ve started our Scotland trip here and had a warm welcome by Wilma. Breakfast is proper and the rooms contain everything you need. Parking situation may get a bit difficult (esp. from 8 am to 6 pm) - on the other hand it‘s close to the city (but absolute quiet), offering shopping possibilities already from early morning as well as...

My son and I had a one night stay at Carbisdale in a twin room - not en suite - and we slept very well in the comfortable beds and enjoyed a hearty breakfast with many options. Fortunately we found a parking spot in the street very close to the house entrance and did not need to use the car... More
