“Best B&B of our trip, nicely decorated!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2011

This B&B was picked out for us by Rabbie's Tours (also highly recommended). The entire house was decorated lovely! Some of the rooms had a view of the castle! The breakfast was served on time and was absolutely delicious! It was also nice to play with the puppy on the back deck, as I missed mine at home. My only complaint would be the shower is rather small, and our window was hard to close. We stayed the night of a new shower being installed, and the smell was rather strong from the caulk at first. The B&B was within walking distance of everything in town, and was quiet. The owner was very courteous, and we would definitely stay again!

This was our second stay at Ardentorrie House, and it was just as wonderful as we remembered.

Hosts Kate and Willie Kennedy are warm, friendly, and helpful.

The house has been completely remodeled and renovated in artistic, contemporary style. Our suite was comfortable, immaculately clean, and attractively decorated, with many endearing and thoughtful touches, such as a tiny "treasure chest" of foil-covered chocolates. We get the sense that Kate and Willie asked themselves, "What would we like to find in a guest house suite?" and furnished with that in mind.

The location is spectacular, a residential street on a bluff overlooking Inverness Castle, the River Ness, and Inverness Cathedral. There are two good places adjacent for the evening meal: the hotel across the street, and a local pub down the block.

Kate always responded promptly to our e-mail enquiries as we made, then changed, plans several times in the months leading up to our trip. Price for the room gave excellent value.

When we think of Inverness, we think of Ardentorrie House and the Kennedys.

  • Liked — The house, the hosts, the location
  • Disliked — Can't get back there often enough
