4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Stayed at Melrose Villa for 2 nights on our travels around Scotland. The owner accommodated us on the first morning with an early breakfast as we had to head out earlier than the normal breakfast time. He was very helpful with recommendations of bars, restaurants and how to get around. Only complaint is there is little parking. None on site,... More

Ken was absolutely lovely even though we were running very late to arrival. Rooms were very clean, breakfast variety was excellent and ken is delightfully friendly. Very easy to find and close to the city centre I would highly recommend to anybody :)

We had a fantastic time at Melrose Villa. There were 6 in our group and we split into 3 of the rooms here. The manager Kenny is a total comedian with the driest sense of humor, so if you don't understand deadpan I can see how one might misconstrue his personality, but rest assured he is a fabulous guy and...

Beware, when you are greeted by Kenny, the gruff and ever so uninviting hotelier who dons a mustard stained white vest to greet new guests, his first port of call is to demand your address and card details, despite paying for the full stay in advance online. He requires the security code on the back of your card and everything.... More

Probably the worst value for money you'll ever experience. Tiny room and absolutely filthy. See pics. What a disappointment. The owner is a nice guy but he needs to get the cleaning up to standard. I've stayed in loads of establishments all over the UK and abroad and this was the worst I've ever encountered. The only saving grace if... More

There were rules posted everywhere. Don't touch this, don't do that. The rooms were a bit small and made even smaller with the amount of furniture stuffed in them. Couldn't open a suitcase out flat. The owner turned the heating off at night so it was a bit cold, but he did give you extra blankets. It was only five... More

there is no way to park your own car. The rooms are not very clean - especially the bathroom. Breakfast was ok. The location is very good. WLAN ist available for free. Owner has not much interest for quests.

I would give this 3.5 stars if I could! It's a good base for staying in Inverness and other hotels/B&Bs near the city centre were a lot more expensive at the time of booking. I've not stayed in many B&Bs so maybe my expectations are too high but here goes... Positives: Very good location being less than 10 minutes walk... More
