“Very average for £70.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We just recently stayed at this B&B for one night and for the life of me I cannot see how it can advertise as a 4 star accommodation, the twin room we had was very small almost like a converted large cupboard, with a shower that was cramped and a curtain that clung to you like a wet newspaper on a windy day, the beds although adequate have metal headboards in an ornate style the gave a rendition of tubular bells every time you turned or moved, and with the creaky floors it was reminiscent of a 1960's ghost movie, the embossed wallpaper has surely seen better times in another decade, the small TV could be updated perhaps to flat screen, but to be fair the room was clean and pleasant enough.

Breakfast was as we requested although I noted the orange juice was whisked away after one glass was poured by the owner, may be you are only allowed one glass who knows I'm sure more would have been provided if requested, as we were offered more toast if required.

All in all I could only say this experience was average, but for a property boasting 4 stars and charging £70 I think upgrades in some areas would not go amiss.

We stayed at the Ryeford Guest House for 3 nights in mid-July. The room was very nice and the location very convenient to town. The breakfast was excellent. But what we really appreciate about the Ryeford Guest House is the kindness and graciousness of the owners, Joan and George. Unfortunately, we had an emergency while staying there. Joan and George were so compassionate and helpful. They allowed us to use their telephone and I-pad, and to take over the living room for a meeting. When we needed to extend our stay in Inverness, Joan helped us find alternate accommodations since Ryeford was booked. She even called to check on us after leaving and to wish us well. We like to stay at B&Bs because we appreciate personal service and we like to make local connections. We are so grateful we were at Ryeford when we needed some additional support! Thanks so much, Joan and George!

B&B was very nice with excellent hosts. Very clean and well laid out, WiFi in the room, good beds, parking was ok (she offered to parallel park for us!), and the breakfast was good, standard Scottish fare. Had mirrors outside the bathroom with plugs near the mirrors (hard to find in most locations)! The location was nice and quiet while sleeping, but just down the steps at the end of the street to the town so that was very nice!

Room Tip: Very few steet name signs so it was slightly difficult to find. Trudge forward! It's worth it!

We stayed two nights and were most comfortable. Breakfast was great. The room was clean and the bathroom was also spotless. The living room was a great place to relax. The host helped us with our plans. I had a little trouble with my Wi-fi, but was able to connect at the bottom of the stairs and in the dining room. So, it all was good.

Lovely owner, very welcoming. Great map and advice on where to go, then left us to our stay which we liked. BnB in a great location for the center of Inverness and good for parking too.
Bed was comfy, room really warm and very clean. Breakfast was yummy, and you order what you want the day before via a choice posted into a box at the front door, pick your food and time and it's there waiting for you. Great choice too.
Perfect location for the town center, literally a 5 min walk to food and shops. Would certainly stay again.

I stayed 2x here and the first time was good but the second time was disappointing due to the bedroom. The bedroom downstairs was very cramped with two single beds. The en-suite was minute with hardly any room to move and the shower was a trickle and really poor.There was no headboard on one of the beds and you could hear sounds very easily pass through the walls and wooden floors. The TV was also very small and of poor quality for a 4 * B&B. The host was welcoming & breakfast was good but this bedroom was certainly not anywhere near 4*.

Room Tip: Try and avoid the downstairs bedroom.

Lovely B&B in the centre of Inverness, nicely decorated room, with tv and tea making facilities bright well stocked bathroom. Excellent breakfast. Owners and staff are very friendly and welcoming. Very convenient for the shops and we were able to leave our bags and collect later which is not always allowed in other b&Bs. We returned here for the second time and will always use this b&B when staying in Inverness.
