“Location and hosts' great - rooms small”
Reviewed September 23, 2009

Stayed here with spouse and adult daughter and son-in law (2 rooms) for two nights in mid - September 2009. The location of the Lodge is very convenient to downtown Inverness with the river, restaurants and shopping. The hosts (Jennifer and Niven) are charming and Jennifer prepares a superb breakfast – fresh fruits (several kinds), multiple cereals and the full range of cooked goodies of a full Scottish breakfast. The lodge is immaculate, but the rooms are quite small as pointed out in a previous Trip Advisor review. I found our double room (1 bed) so small that there was a bedside table on only 1 side of the bed and I could not turn around in the shower (I have wide shoulders). Otherwise a good experience. I would probably not stay here again because of the size of the room – but would encourage others who might not need as much space as we did to seriously consider the Lodge. It has charm, is very clean, is centrally located and has pleasant helpful hosts

I was travelling alone and wanted a convenient base to explore Inverness. I stayed here for 2 nights and it was perfect, only 2 minutes' walk from the centre but very quiet at night. My single room was small but perfectly formed, complete with full ensuite facilities, a comfy chair, TV, adequate storage, kettle and clean, comfortable bed. All a person could need for a short visit. It was spotless and newly decorated: they have recently refurbished all rooms to be ensuite. Breakfast was enormous; the best porridge I have ever had. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. I was given a house+room key so felt completely independent. Excellent value - I recommend it.

Kinloch Guesthouse is located in a very quiet street. We stayed in a cosy and clean bedroom with a triple bed - the bathroom where we were was outside the room, however was for our use only and was very clean.
Ms. Jennifer was very nice, friendly and helpful. Excellent and delicious breakfast menu, with variety of choice.
We only wish we could have stayed longer
Many thanks to Ms. Jennifer...and her grandchildren

Beware. This B&B has very friendly owners but sub-standard accommodations. The rooms are entirely too small for guests. There are no mirrors over the sinks, no bathroom towel racks. The one double room should really be a single because it is so small You have to put the tea pot on the floor in order to find a receptacle. It seems as though they are "learning" the trade, but should not do so at the rates that they charge and at the expense of their guests.
