“Lovely B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

The Moyness House is a wonderful B&B with all the amenities. Walking distance to the city centre and transportation to the all the sights. Bed was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Enjoyed our stay.

We had two nights stay here and could not fault this place at all , every thing was exceptional. The room was huge, as was the bath room. Off street parking was nice.
The host we very hospitable and friendly.
I recommend this place to any one

Room Tip: Perhaps a room down stairs if you don't like the stairs?

Located in a quiet neighborhood about 5 minutes away from the heart of Inverness. This B&B is extremely clean, the bed and pillows are comfy. The rooms are a nice size. It felt more like a hotel than a B&B.
Sorry, I cannot comment on the breakfast (it is served between 8-9a) because we had to leave early in the morning to head to Hadrian’s Wall in England but they could not be more accommodating for allowing us to pay early and extremely pleasant at every touch point.

A house with a history! Loved staying where the Scottish writer once lived. Great location within easy walking distance to the river and parks, restaurants of every description, music venues . . . All in the heart of Inverness.

The accommodations focused on one thing: comfort! The quiet neighborhood made sleeping a pleasure and the breakfast menu and pots of coffee a cheery welcome every morning.

Loved every moment there!

We had originally booked to stay for three nights, but, due to unforeseeable circumstances, we phoned two days before we were due with a request for an extra night beforehand. The hosts said that they could accommodate us. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and put into a larger and more expensive room at no extra charge. The room was very clean and comfortable, and had a very spacious bathroom. Our hosts were very good with advice for a number of different questions and provided all the brochures that a traveler might need. Breakfast was a joy. Not only was there an excellent choice, but variations were done on request. This B&B is ideally situated in a quiet street and only a short walk to the town centre. If you are thinking of traveling to Inverness, then this is the place to stay.

Our large family group (10 brothers/sisters/spouses) couldn't have been more graciously and comfortably accommodated than we were at the charming and perfectly located Moyness House. We were there for 5 days, reserving all their rooms, and the level of personal service and thoughtful hospitality never wavered.

There is plenty of parking in their private driveway; however the loction is perfect for walking easily to fine restaurants, laundromat, shops, strolls along the lovely river vistas and lively musical venues in the evenings. The rooms were of varying sizes but all were immaculately maintained and equipped with comfortable beds, quality bedding, very large flat-screen TVs, adequate storage, makings for tea and coffee and good lighting. The bathrooms provided every amenity imaginable, even including heated towel racks, ear plugs and fluffy bathrobes (usually only found in luxury hotels). A lovely and spacious guests' sitting room was our place to gather for games, reading, cocktails or making plans for our next outing. Many B&B's do not provide this type of space.

The breakfasts were cooked to individual order each day and were served in the bright and airy dining room with lovely porcelain tableware and fresh flowers furnishing the tables. I have never experienced such a wide variety of choices at any B&B in all our years of travel, and Jenny's fresh fruit melange was a universal favorite. We were encouraged to order as much as we wanted of anything on the menu, and Richard served it all with great flair, while Jenny performed miracles in the kitchen. When we had early morning tours which departed prior to the breakfast hour, we found "breakfast baskets" outside our bedroom doors, packed with fresh fruit and a variety of pastries.

The main element that insures none of us would stay anywhere else in Inverness was the warm hospitality and thoughtfulness with which we were treated. In my opinion, Moyness House sets the standard by which other guest houses should be judged.

Room Tip: We had the Neil Gunn room on the second floor, the largest one with a huge bathroom. It was suprem...

Our stay at Moyness House was perfect beginning to end. The accommodations are absolutely lovely, the owners are spot on helpful (sent out clothes out for us to be laundered and got them back in time for us to leave -- our poor planning left this to last minute), breakfast was delicious, we got lots of help orienting to Inverness and great tips on what to do when we go back, and the location is convenient for walking into town.

Lovely people, beautifully appointed rooms, great food (they even packed us up a travel breakfast as we had to leave early on our check out day to catch our train for our next destination), outstanding service. We can't wait to go back! One of our very favorite places and we stayed many places as we traveled England, Scotland and across to Ireland.
