We stayed in room 3 which was huge and fabulously comfortable. Double baths in the enormous bathroom. Food in the restaurant was excellent, full of flavour and good sized portions too. Well worth a visit and glad I've been but too far away from home to go again anytime soon.

My wife and myself were invited to lunch by two old and very dear friends. He is a foodie and a wine buff with an amazing cellar of his own. We have lived near Inverness for a number of years but had never visited Boath House Hotel but had seen the marketing and favourable reviews over the years. Our friends... More

One more stay at the Boathouse - again had a lovely time & enjoyed great food. Spend quite some time in the beautiful garden and in the hammock watching birds.. Bliss.. We cannot think of anything that needs to be improved: a small hotel,with great food and friendly&attentive staff.. If you like something special and personal this is it.. We... More

After doing quite a bit of research of hotels in and around the Inverness area, my husband and I decided on Boath House primarily because it offered mix of well appointed rooms and the potential for really good food...we were not disappointed. We stayed in Orangerie room 8 (the room is actually in the basement of the hotel which was... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments. Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay, we hope that you are able to return one day. Due to the size of Boath House it is not necessary to have a reception desk. Between the front of house staff and house keepers there is always someone present in the hotel reception area... More

We enjoyed a fantastic 3 nights a Boath House - staying in the Cottage. It helped to have glorious weather - meaning we enjoyed the grounds fully (plenty of Croquet was played !) All staff were very friendly and attentive and it was reassuring to see the owners and their son taking such a full role. The food is truely... More

My wife and I stayed at Boath House on 9 June and had a wonderful time. Check in was fast and courteous, as was room service when we ordered a bottle of wine from their respectable wine list. One of the highlights of our stay was the very large, classical bathtub, which we put to good use! Boath House itself... More

The hotel building itself is lovely and the room we had was beautifully furnished. The food was good although certainly not the best we have ever experienced staying in similar establishments. However the area where we felt let down was in customer service. On arrival we weren't sure where to go so just parked in the car park and walked... More

The beautiful building and its settings in the magnificent garden, were already a treat, when we arrived. But what followed, was even better. Our room was wonderful elegant furnished – with a fantastic large bathroom. We had dinner once, but also there it was absolutely superb. Great Wine card.

Boath House is a lovely place. At a very quiet time of the week, we spent 2 nights, one of which we had exclusive use. I was slightly disappointed driving down to the house, as I realized it was sitting really close to the road. Rather closer than I had anticipated. It proved no big deal. You can certainly hear...

We spent two nights over Easter weekend and had a fantastic time, aided by splendid spring weather. We stayed in the Superior Lake View room (#3) which is a spacious room at the back of the house with an equally spacious bathroom, featuring two soaking tubs which are however a rather tight fit for anyone over six feet tall.
