“Great location and good value in Inverness”
Reviewed July 23, 2011

This B&B is situated in a very convenient location in Inverness (trust me because I get lost very easily, and I could find this place with no difficulty), with somewhat free (between 6pm and 8am) and plenty of parking across the street from the B&B. It's two blocks from the water, and one can easily walk everywhere in Inverness. The owner is very helpful and friendly. He gave me a lot of information around the area, good places to eat, and also gave me coupons for a restaurant (for a free dessert or drink). Parking pass may be provided if it's needed (e.g. parking between 8am and 6pm).

I had a single room with shared bath, which was of good value considering that everything was booked in Inverness that day, and whatever available was almost triple the price. The B&B is very clean. The room was quite small, though for a single traveler it was enough for one night of sleep. I did not sleep well enough because I'm a light sleeper, and there was a couple with a baby next door. I could hear them late in the evening when they got back as the baby was making a fuss. However, I would say it's more of the parents not taking care to be quiet and not the B&B's problem.

Breakfast was European continental style with muffin, cold meat, cheese, egg, pancake, toast, yogurt, fresh fruit bowl, and of course, tea or coffee. It was plenty enough, and I'm sure you could ask for refills if you wanted more.

There is also free WiFi in the B&B, and the owner will provide you with the pass code if you need the WiFi (you may need to ask for it).

This is a good B&B conveniently located in Inverness, with great value and very friendly service. Highly recommended!

The owner of this B&B is extremely welcoming. He does everythinkg he can to make sure you feel at home. The breakfast is pretty special - bowls of diced fruit and freshly made pancakes. A very good place to stay.

Sincerely, we chose this B&B after long search because of its price, about 10£ per night lower than others in the area. The place was excellent and Arafeh, the proprietor, very friendly and nice.
Rooms are a little bit small but very tidy and they all come with digital tv and kettle for coffee and tea, replenished every day. The twin rooms are not ensuite, but the common bathroom is very large, clean and comfortable. It makes little difference from ensuite, since there's only two rooms to share it.
Very good breakfast, with a good choice of juices, cereals and fruit salad.
I would advise to book early, as the place gets full in the summer. In fact, we had to switch rooms to cover the whole stay, but this was only a minor nuisance given the helpfulness of our host.
It is in the center of Inverness, everything is within walking distance and there's a big Tesco nearby. Only 3/5 for location as the city itself doesn't offer very much, except for the surroundings.

Stayed one night in this B&B, room small but very clean and comfortable. Owner Arafah was very welcoming and continental breakfast even impressed my husband who does like his 'full English'.

A very friendly little place a short stroll away from the town centre. My mate and I got good tips from the host where to go for a few beers and dinner which turned out to be so good that we made only back in the wee hours of the morning.
The beds were comfortable and the place very quiet. Breakfast was great too. The only slight negative is a shared bathroom which i am personally not a big fan of but as it was clean and I didn't have to queue it was no big deal.
Next time I make it up to Inverness again it will be my first choice.

Great location, 5 mins walk from town centre and bus/train station. Extremely quiet and safe area.
Newly renovated and decorated to an extremely high standard.
Tasty and generous continental breakfast.
But what really puts The Quaich ahead of the rest is the excellent service and friendliness of it's owner who makes every effort to ensure that everyone enjoys their stay. He really is superb and because of him and the quality of the accomodation we had a great stay in Inverness.
