“Better than expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

It was wonderful to wake up to a beautiful landscape every morning and delicious cooked breakfast. The staff were pleasant and I will certiainly return if I travel to Inverness again.

Although the shower was a bit weak, the room and service made up for that! The dinner menu was very expensive though; it will be nice if those who stay can get a discount.

It's just a guest house, very much overpriced. Room was big enough, four lumpy beds, no ensuite the bathroom was across the hall. Felt old, tired and dusty, old stuffed animals on the walls. Needs a refurb.
breakfast was farmfoods/asda stuff, was okay I suppose.
Ok but £122 is far too expensive. But I suppose that's what you pay for the centre of Inverness, its's the same prices in London though!

I stayed one night and we had 3 rooms for 8 people. The B&B location is just perfect in Inverness, very close to the city center.
However its special decoration has scared my younger daughter. The bathroom setup is OK. Breakfast service and choice of meals is standard and we could use the large dining room at night for games and whisky tasting.

Stayed over on a business trip. Decor needed a refresher and the drains in my ensuite were a bit smelly. However, I did get a good night's sleep. Breakfast was a bit skimpy.

Not my first choice when I go back to Inverness again.

Very uncomfortable decorations of stuffed birds and animal heads on the walls. Adjoining bathroom and toilet not ensuite as expected..Breakfast was very good. Freshly cooked having been ordered the evening before and served by a very nice lady. Horrendous trying to park the car in the tiny carpark and backing out onto a one way busy street. Once seen never forgotten ...... Not again!!!

The room (double with en-suite) was okay. No chair, just the bed to sit or lie on. It could have been a bit more solid. Very thin walls. Had a family staying next door one night, with loud children and TV - not amusing. Some doors definitely needed a spot of grease, the creaking of the bathroom door was particularly nasty. Breakfast was okay, had to be ordered the evening before together with the time you wanted to take it. The place is okay for a shorter stay, it's near to the town centre in a quiet street. I wouldn't recommend it for a a stay longer than three or four days at most.

Stayed for 1 night in a quad room in July. Room was clean and fairly comfortable - with our own ensuite bathroom. The beds were a bit lumpy - but not too bad. Breakfast was filling - full breakfast offered (had to give order on arrival the night before - which is standard at most B&B)'s. Location is great, free parking - walk into town to find places to eat and other amenities. The decor is a bit bizarre - stuffed animals all over the place. We'd stay again if forced to overnight in Inverness - simply because of the price and location (most things in Inverness seem to be pricey!)
