I can not imagine a better experience than the one we had with Eleanor at Castle View Guesthouse. The home itself is warm and beautifully decorated. The room was spacious and clean with modern amenities and a phenomenal view. The breakfast was ridiculous - I will be dreaming of that breakfast for years to come. But the crown jewel of...

She gave us excellent recommendations of things to do and places to eat around the area that made our stay so enjoyable. We initially only planned on staying two nights as...

We spent two nights at the Castleview B&B. Eleanor is a gracious and enthusiastic hostess and makes you feel at home right away. Her B& B is on a corner as you turn the corner after the bridge in Inverness. People just pull up on the curb and unload. Eleonore will show you a lot down a pretty street a...

A lovely B&B in a great location in Inverness. The building is full of character and very well maintained and Eleanor was wonderful host. The breakfast was great and there is massive choice and the whole place is spotlessly clean, would recommend and would stay again.

We had a reservation but there was a mix up on their part so they didn't have our names, but luckily they had room and we were able to stay for the night. Eleanor was very apologetic and accommodating. She packed us a nice box lunch since we had to catch the train to London at 7:45 am. She made...

We have put quite a few of our guests to this B&B and every time we have picked our guests up in the morning they all have great reviews about this place. I met the owner once and she is a lovely lady that will look after your very need.

I stayed here for one night while on a fishing trip. What a Find!! Marvellous view of the castle from our very comfortable room. We couldn't ask for more. Even a generous measure of malt was given us as a welcome drink. The breakfast was extraordinary with a superb selection of fresh fruit followed by the full Scottish breakfast. We...
