The Strathness House is situated in a prime location next to the cathedral, within easy walking distance of most everything downtown, including the train station which is about 5 to 7 minutes. The hotel itself is very clean and well kept. The staff are warn and welcoming with great recommendations and suggestions for activities and dining. Our room was spacious... More

We had a wonderful stay at this property. The rooms are large and spacious, the ownership is very friendly and breakfast was wonderful. There is a large parlor to hang out with other guests and is walking distance from a lot of great pubs and restaurants. The river is right outside the front door and makes for a very picturesque...

Absolutely nothing has changed. Same great friendly faces. Familiarity from morning breakfast and room cleaning staff (remembered me from previous visits) Same superb 1st class service. Same delicious full Scottish breakfast cooked to order plus continental offering. Same spotlessly clean nicely decorated and recently updated (window frames painted) room. This guest house should be a 5 star simply because that... More

Situated beautifully along the River Ness. Walking distance to good food and drink. Very helpful owners who's advice helped make our day trips a success. Definitely be back next time we're in Inverness :) only drawback was no elevator, but that's common for B&B. But a great base for exploring whisky and hiking country.

Those of you who frequently travel in Europe will get this immediately: There are top sheets on the bed, and face cloths in the bath! Our room, No. 7, looks over the picturesque River Ness. By European standards, it is large, large enough for 2 beds and 2 chairs, 2 bureaus, a desk and an armoire. The only negative is... More

We spent three nights at Strathness House. The room we had was on the small side and the bathroom was tiny. But the way we were treated in the hotel and the view over the river Ness made up for it. We were warmly greeted and everybody at the hotel made sure we felt welcome and well cared for. We... More

Our group of 6 LOVED Strathness House. The location was excellent and the river view from our room was fabulous. The beds are only doubles but comfy. The best part was the wonderful breakfast served in the cheery dining room every morning. The owners were extremely gracious and helpful. We will stay here again next time we visit Inverness.

We stayed here one night in May 2016. The rooms were nice and quite big. The toilet is nice too. And the view to the river is beautiful. In just a few minutes, you are in the city centre with nice shops, cafes and restaurants. The breakfast is perfect. You have a choice of everything you need! If we come... More
