“Excellent b&b”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

A really good b&b in Inverness is not easy to find, so it's nice to be able to recommend this one wholeheartedly. Comfortable bed and room, well decorated with no tartan tat. Very decent shower with constant hot water, excellent breakfast with great fruit salad as well as cereal and hot food cooked to order. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable owner. No problem about leaving luggage on check-out day, which is useful. Handy for Eden Court Theatre, less so for centre of town but the walk there is pleasant - around 15 mins along the river.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room and the owner recommended one at the back of the house. The b&b is on...

Very friendly, comfortable B+B. Perfect location for ourselves as we arrived on bikes off the Great Glen. Nice big room and bed. Not just tea and coffee but biscuits and sweets too. It's the little extras that make the difference. Excellent breakfast and real fresh fruit salad too. Would definately stay again.

Great choice for the 2 nights that we've just spent in Inverness. We checked lots of b&b's before we booked this one and couldn't find anything we were attracted to. Many of them had very mixed reviews and looked a bit dated. Although this one is not in the very centre of Inverness we liked the look of it and we were so pleased we went for this one. I had already seen some pics of the room we stayed in and was hoping we would get that one, which we did, lovely dark furniture, lots of space, very sophisticated look. Very impressed with the toiletries in the bathroom, good quality towels and in general, very 'boutique hotel' like, which I love! There are lots of lovely details everywhere, sweets in the room, plenty of coffee and tea, good choice for breakfast, fresh fruit, fruit cocktail, vegetarian choice, etc

As I said, it's not in the centre but it's probably no more than a 10 minute walk. It's 2 minutes away from the river and on both sides there are already a good selection of restaurants. So location for us was absolutely fine. No issues with parking either. Plenty of room.

Although we arrived very early in the morning, Alison was very welcoming and said this wasn't a problem, our room was ready and she let us go straight up, which was brilliant and we were very grateful for it. She also booked us a table for dinner one night and even gave us a voucher for some free drinks!!

So, fantastic experience, I would strongly recommend Bannerman b&b and I will definitely go back when we return to the highlands

Hugo, the beautiful Labrador was absolutely lovely

Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable and hopefully we'll see you again

We were very happy that we'd chosen Bannerman Bed & Breakfast for our recent three night stay in Inverness. Our room was very comfortable and spacious with a kingsize bed and good ensuite facilities with complementary toiletries. Plenty of tea, coffee and shortbread provided and also a little dish of sweets which was a nice little touch. Breakfast was very good and included a lovely fresh fruit salad as well as plenty of other choices. We had a nice welcolme on arrival from Alison and she was very obliging and helpful to us during our stay. Have got to mention Hugo, Alison's gorgeous dog. What a delight he was, gentle, friendly and utterly adorable! We would certainly stay there again because we now know without doubt that it's going to be good.

This is an excellent B&B located near to Inverness town centre and Eden Court. My single room was very clean and contained all the facilities required at a good price. Breakfast was just right. The owner was extremely helpful and I would recomend this B&B to anyone holidaying in the Highlands.

A very warm welcome from Alison. great breakfast (plenty of fresh fruit) and a good sleep. The walk into town took about 15 minutes along the banks of the Ness which was very pleasant because the weather was dry - not so sure I'd like it if it was raining. It was a lot nearer to Eden Court Theatre which does good meals.

Room Tip: I was in the snug which was perfect because I was a single traveller. I'm not so sure about shar...

Thanks so much for your response, I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay here. Just to clarify that although the Snug Room has a double bed, it is only available for single occupancy so you would have a larger room if you come back with your partner.
Many thanks again for your kind comments.
