“Excellent Guesthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

We had a lovely time at the Craigside Lodge, early entry and close to the shops, room was very clean and the breakfast was absolutely lovely, Amy and her Mum were very friendly. We also had the room with a view of the castle which was a bonus.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We stayed here for only one night (pity!) and were lucky enough to get the room with the view of the castle, which has to be one of the best views I've ever seen from a hotel window! The room with en-suite was clean, the bed comfortable and I've already mentioned the view!
Amy and Ewan were very welcoming and made sure that our every need was catered to. They recommended the Castle Hotel, just down the road for dinner and it was great. The cooked breakfast was lovely, with the free-range poached eggs to die for.
Next time I'm in Inverness, I will definitely stay here for more than one night. Loved it!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the view of the castle, well worth it!

Amy & Ewan are gracious and hospitable hosts. They helped us with navigation and loaned us an umbrella ("brelly") for our first morning out in the rain. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were so tasty. And the location is perfect - an easy walk to sites and restaurants.

This accommodation is lovely and my friend and I were very well looked after for the short time we stayed. It has all the basic facilities you need including wifi and is in a great location relative to town. We walked 2 mins down the road to the Castle Tavern where we had delicious food - a great recommendation from Craigside. We were cooked a really good breakfast in the morning as well. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it for anyone travelling to Inverness!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here even though it was way too short. Our family had two rooms and one with a baby. They were very accommodating with the baby giving us a great room away from other guests (in case he cried at night) and even supplied toys for our boy to play with. The rooms were good size and the lounge area was very comfortable. We walked a short way to an excellent dinner so location was perfect. Thanks!

We have just spent four nights at Craigside Lodge, visiting Inverness for the Loch Ness Marathon. The standard of accommodation is excellent with large comfortable rooms, with TV, WiFi and ensuite bathroom. We had fantastic views of the castle and the city from our room. Breakfast is of a first class standard with plenty of choices. Most importantly, Amy and Ewan are wonderful, warm and personable hosts who obviously want all their visitors to have a friendly experience at their B&B. This extended to them both getting up at 5am to make breakfast for the marathon runners on race day. This shows their willingness to go that 'extra mile' for their patrons. I have no hesitation in recommending Craigside Lodge as one of the best places to stay in Inverness.

Room Tip: Room 4 has great views of the Castle!
