We live 65 miles west of Inverness and enjoy taking the train to see the opera twice a year. I'd made a reservation that turned out NOT to be in Inverness (a real senior moment) so at the last minute I was desperate. I went to Late Rooms and saw the Waverley at £60 a night, right near the railroad station, and thought, "How bad can it be for one night?" I read a couple of reviews on Trip Advisor, but they were old, so I took a chance Lucky me!!
Six months ago new management took over this guest house, and the place is immaculate. Yes, it's "basic," as in no frills. But we were only looking for a clean, comfortable place with a decent breakfast. We certainly got that! Angus is very solicitous and caring of his guests. (He also made us a fabulous breakfast!) Best of all, our room was QUIET, even though it's right in the middle of the city and 2 minutes from the train station. The only loud noise was the screaming of the seagulls, which is its own kind of lullaby.
During the "high season," Inverness, like most tourist attractions, can be quite expensive. If all you want is a comfortable, quiet place to spend the night, you'll NOT find a better deal. You'll be in the middle of the city, close to all of the local attractions as well as busses and trains. I recommend the Waverley without qualification.
