Eleanor (the proprietor) was the quintessential ambassador for Scotland. She was so friendly, helpful, and professional. The room was fantastic and breakfast was on point! Thank you for accommodating all four of us at the last minute.

We arrived at Inverness in the morning after a LONG night on the night train. We had arranged to drop our bags off, but didn't think our room would be ready that early in the morning. Eleanor and Mia (the resident dog) greeted us warmly. To our great surprise and relief, our room was already cleaned and available! There were... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Castle View Guesthouse July 6-8, 2016. Reservation process: In deciding which B&B to stay at while in Inverness, we saw the consistently excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, and decided this was the B&B for us. The reservations were easy - Eleanor (the proprietor) was immediately responsive to our online questions and the... More

Spend four nights here as a base for touring the Scottish highlands - couldn't recommend more highly. Location: centrally located along the River Ness, with stunning views of the castle across the way. A two minute walk from the main shopping street and easy access to great restaurants in the surrounding blocks. Rooms were individually decorated, very nicely done, and... More

Wonderfully locating in the middle of Inverness, by the side of the river Ness and, as its name suggests, with stunning views of the Castle, this was one of the best b and bs in Scotland. Large comfy rooms, similarly one of the largest and most comfortable beds I can remember. Elanor was an excellent host, both friendly and helpful... More

Eleanor is the quintessential hostess. We booked two rooms, one for my husband and I and one for our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter, Lucy. The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated as well as newly remodeled. Eleanor greeted us with the warmth of long lost family, which was a joy following our motor trip from Edinburgh. In addition, Mia, who... More

Two couples stayed here in July 2016 and we couldn't recommend it highly enough. Eleanor is such a nice host and provided us with lovely rooms, comfortable beds and a very generous and delicious breakfast in the morning. Like a hotel with really nice homely touches. From the outside this B&B might not jump out at you but it has... More
