“warm welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Susan is a lovely host and the accommodation and breakfasts were superb. Lovely warm room on a very cold night. Walking distance to the centre and private parking. We'll be back. I've tried to write this review several times but Tripadvisor wouldn't accept it for one reason or another . . really annoying to have to keep doing it again.

Room Tip: It is situated in a quiet residential area; so shouldn't be a problem in any room.

Green Features: All fine at the guest house . . but this questionnaire is awful. The guest house was lovely but 5 attempts to get Tripadvisor to accept my review puts me off ever writing a review again.

We decided to return to The Ness for a short break away in December. It was another great stay and again recieved a very warm welcome from the hosts. We both had an excellent sleep in the huge comfy bed! Richie and Susan gave us some great advice and help in sights to see outside the city, and also recommendations on restaurants and pubs. Thank you again!

Richard and Susan were brilliant hosts, warm and friendly welcome, the room we had was lovely and comfortable. We loved the choices for breakfast and would think that there was something for everyone no matter your tastes. Lots to see and do within easy walking distance, plus having off road parking is a bonus.

Susan is a wonderful friendly host. Delicious breakfasts, comfy beds, quiet, warm and clean room. We stayed in room 2 which also included a bath. On site parking was a bonus. Very close to walk to all attractions, castle, town centre, theatre, restaurants and pubs. Great value. Would stay there again.

We stayed in The Ness Guest house for one night in November 2014 during our tour of Scotland. The room was lovely and clean and really comfortable. Susan was a great host and very welcoming. She let us know all the places to visit in Inverness - and the town centre is only a short walk from the guest house.
The homemade brownies in the room were a nice touch and the traditional Scottish breakfast in the morning was very good - even the haggis! Overall a really great stay and would definitely recommend.
