We only stayed one night on route to Ben Nevis early the next day but thought this was excellent. In the lobby a really nice touch was all the information given. I had not had this at a guest house before and they gave you names of local places to eat and pubs and how long it would take to... More

A good place for sleep that is in a good location in Inverness. Nothing fancy, quite practical. It is worth the money you pay simply based on its location. Do not expect for the wifi to work. Food not allowed to be brought in. Owners live in the same building.

Good price, normal quality, clear rooms, good location. The downtown is near very much. The breakfast, lunch or dinner is not in hotel but a Tesco is approximately 200 meters from hotel. Important information: the reception of the hotel is on different street!

We enjoyed our stay at the guest house. Our room was very clean and newly renovated. Especially the bath room was very nice and we liked the style of the room. We can definitively recommend this guest house.

I wouldn't want to spend a week here because it was very impersonal. Alban and Abbey Guest Houses are both run by the same family as Ardross Glencairn Guesthouse, just a short walk away. The oddity here is that you have to go to Ardross Glencairn Guesthouse to check in then you get your key and proceed to Alban or... More

Such a cosy place, super clean and tranquil! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Such an amazing break from mad sightseeing around Scotland. Super comfy beds! You just don't want to wake up. Superb stay, we will come back!

My boyfriend and I went to Inverness to go see Loch Ness and also catch up with a friend. Albans house offered us freedom, privacy and comfort. Great for a couple on a budget. Only thing you need to note is that keys are collected (and returned) to a desk at a place down the road so you'll need to... More

The person who answered the phone said they would be there in 2 mins we waited about 10mins to be let in to the building. Our... More

In all not a bad stay but not as described if i.m honest. The room I got (single) seriously needs painting as there are marks all over the walls and the ceilings,and the bathroom needs a bit of attention. Started off ok once I unpacked after a long bike ride I popped into reception down the road (yes down the... More

Every move you make the house creaks - the floor creaks when you walk; you step in to the bath tub, it creaks; you open the door it creaks; the bed creaks. The walls are so thin you can hear the moves and voices of the guests at the other room. The room is so small, the lights are out,... More
