The Avalon Guest House is located just outside the centre of Inverness and has ample private parking space. The rooms are decorated with much attention, although a bit over the top for our taste. Our pro's and Cons: + Breakfast: continental and cooked on order - the beds are very short (1.90m) if you are longer than average that is... More

A warm welcome, a large room with everything one may need, a little glass of white wine and chocolates, a customized breakfast with gluten-free options upon request, good recommandations in terms of visits and restaurants... it was close to perfection!

You have to stay here if you visit Inverness. Very good beds, nice chocolate, nice owners and good food. Rooms are very clean. If we come back to inverness we will stay here. 15 minutes walk from the city. Enough parking space.

We have spent eight nights at the Avalon over three different stays. We keep going back because we really like the Avalon: the rooms are spacious, bright, and clean (the bathrooms absolutely sparkle); the location is just a 15 minute walk along the river into the heart of Inverness; and the breakfasts are delicious and satisfying. The many breakfast choices,... More
