Val welcomed us warmly and recommended a walk along the Ness to a comfortable restaurant with good food. It made for a lovely evening. Our room was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. The only drawback was that we could hear another guest snoring through fairly thin walls. Paul served a very good breakfast and we enjoyed our stay. Would definitely... More

We only stayed one night at Avalon before moving on to another B&B in Inverness. We wish we had stayed longer ! The room we had was quite large with an excellent shower in the bathroom. Breakfast was one of the best we've had on our trip. It was an easy walk to the centre of town. The hosts were... More

We spent two nights at the Avalon Guest House, Inverness and were very impressed. The room was luxuriously appointed, all comforts carefully thought out. Even a tray with some glasses and sherry provided. Breakfast was plentiful with a generous choice. Thank you to Val and Paul for making our stay so enjoyable.

More than superb place to stay in a wonderful city. Top quality spotless fixtures and fittings, ample off road parking, beautifully decorated with lovely homely touches. Breakfast consistently amazing. But what really made this place outstanding was the hosting. We were made to feel welcome from the outset and the care and thoughtfulness continued throughout our week long stay. I've... More

This might be the best place we've stayed in the UK in our month-long trip. Definitely clean, free ample off street parking, privacy, comfortable as hell, everything set out in a way that makes sense, and a knowledgeable host. A string of three star hotels haven't been able to offer us that.
