“Warm, friendly guesthoust”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is one of the nicest guesthouses I've stayed in for a while. The hosts Val and her husband were very warm and welcoming. The room had everything I needed, it was clean and warm! Also situated in a convenient location - close to the city centre and easy to get anywhere else if you're travelling with public transport.

Oh and don't forget the homemade shortbread - delicious :)

Highly recommend it, and will definitely stay here again.

I found this b&b on Hostelworld and it had great reviews. We stayed three nights and it was one of tim best bed and breakfasts we stayed in during our five weeks in the UK and Ireland

Val and Chris were lovely hosts. Val gave us a lot of great sightseeing suggestions and where to go locally for dinner, music and drinks. The breakfasts were fabulous too!

When we were there our car was blocked in by a bus so Chris had no problems running down the road to get the driver from the pub where he was watching football to move the bus. Very accommodating hosts.

The room we stayed in was two singles and a double, as there were three of us travelling together. The room was extremely clean, neat, warm, comfortable and had a great little tea tray with home made ginger short bread! The bathroom had a great shower too

All in all it was a really great stay, and I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone@, and would stay again myself

Third time we have been in Inverness, starting our trip to the Highlands.
A warm welcome by Val and Chris, always smiling and giving us a clean and sunny room, with a large bathroom and cute teddy bears making us even more welcome!
Breakfast is perfect, and we had to ask Val for a packed breakfast before leaving: she arranged it no problems (with a smile).
The Guest house is located near the city center and the station.

Very clean and just in the center. Supermarket very near from the B&B.
We have travelled with a baby (23 months) and we had many facilities ( cot and highchair).
In August, perhaps a bit expensive but I recomend it!

We stayed at Mardon for three nights and enjoyed it greatly.
Value and Chris are very lovely people.
For breakfast you can choose from a menu offering a wide range of excellent home cooked food. Both british and continental options are available. The room was spacious and very clean.
The only slight drawback is that there's an extra 6 Pound fee when paying by credit card.
Overall, we greatly enjoyed our stay!

Thank you for your kind review. However others should note that the charge for credit card payment is nominal (less than £1 per person per night in this instance - this guest was with a party of 3 who stayed 3 nights) and does not cover the cost of bank charges which we incur when accepting payment by credit card. There is always the option to pay by cash or debit card at no extra cost

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Mardon and can't recommend the B + B highly enough. The smell of Organic home made bread welcomed us and we were given a very comfortable, light, spotless en suite room. Fluffy dressing gowns hanging in the wardrobe, tea and coffee making facilities plus homemade shortbread, tissues by the bed, shower gel, magazines and books to read. No detail overlooked. Chris's ginger shortbread is a real treat as are his extensive Scottish breakfasts. Deciding what to choose from the varied menu for breakfast was the most arduous task for the day. All served with a cheerful smile and easy manner by Val who was more than happy to suggest local activities and recommend eateries. The enjoyable 10 minute walk across the river to the town centre meant we didn't have to use the car for shopping, mooching about the City or our evening meal.
All in all a wonderful experience and one we hope to repeat.
Thank you Val and Chris

Room Tip: Room 3 was most comfortable and despite being on the road side isn't at all noisy.

Have just stayed four nights with three golfing friends and cannot find anything to criticise (unusual for me). Friendly treatment throughout, nothing too much trouble for Chris and Val, breakfasts as good as you will get at the best hotels, everything clean and spotless. Ideally situated near the centre of Inverness and its shops,pubs and restaurants a short walk away.
