Trafford Bank Guest House
Ranked #19 of 232 Inverness B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The hospitality cannot be beaten, and the charm and location are second to none, you will not be dissapointed. In a town full of B&B's, this is the best. Location is only 5-10 minute walk to the beautiful downtown and great restaurants, and a great spot to explore the highlands from.

From the comfortable, chic decor to the warm, welcoming atmosphere, Trafford Bank is amongst the elite of Inverness' Bed and Breakfast establishments. Lorraine, our hostess, was friendly and helpful, quick to make us feel at home and point out great local restaurants which were, due to Trafford Bank's convenient location, just an easy walk away. We stayed in the newly redecorated "Thistle Room". Our only complaint? We wish we could have stayed a few days more!

We spent 3 nights here on a recent trip and loved the place. It's a great house with lovely grounds and it's decorated very artistically, featuring the art of some local artists. Our room (the Floral Suite) was nicely sized and airy, as were the common rooms. The location was fine, with a 10-15 minute walk into the city center, and our host, Lorraine, was quite helpful whenever necessary. (The off-road parking was a plus too.)

If you are looking for luxury and comfort combined with a mixture of peace & quiet but still within walking distance of Inverness city centre for all the best restaurants - then this is the place to stay. The rooms are unique with various artworks collected personally by hostess Lorraine who provides a warm welcome to everyone. Each room reflects a different aspect of the Highlands of Scotland with emphasis on buying from local manufacturers, even down to the toiletries (the Victorian roll top bath is amazing!).The breakfasts are wonderful with so much variety - you will not need to eat again until evening dinner! I felt as though I had been away for much longer than the 4 nights I stayed there such was the relaxing atmosphere and the exclusive surroundings which you will not find in any other guesthouse - therefore it is something special.

What a find. Everything is brilliant from the food to the relaxing and comfortable rooms. Excellent facilities available in the lounge from DVD's to a small library. The sherry also goes down well as a night cap.

We've been on the road for three months, and appreciate small details when we stay somewhere -this place had so much attention to detail and lovely surprises that made us feel both comfortable and like we were having a big treat.

We spent a lovely evening at the Trafford Bank Guest House in Inverness. Hostess Lorraine was cordial and the room extremely clean, with a pleasing decor and an incredible eye for detail. The toiletries wonderfully unique and organic. Her restaurant recommendations were tantalizing yet we got a little turned around with her directions (but that's another story... Thanks Tony-the-ex-Cabbie!). Breakfast was wonderful and on par with the best we had in Scotland. Highly recommended.
