“One of my best B&B experiences ever”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

We arrived kind of late in the evening but Neil was still up waiting for us and welcomed us with overwhelming cordiality. The rooms he gave us were spacious and clean and the decoration made us feel like we were staying in an old scottish castle. Also in the en-suit bathroom one could recognise that a lot of effort was put into details. The beds also were more than cosy.
In the morning Neil made us a delicious breakfast and was eager to satisfy all our needs and wishes. He provided everything from full scottish breakfast over pancakes to yoghurt to fruits and so on...so in a nutshell we got more than we could ever have wished for.
As the city centre is only 5 minutes from Bluebell we even had the possibility to explore the city before we had to leave.
All in all there is nothing I can think of comlaining about. It was really one of my best stays in a B&B ever.
Thanks a million Neil & Margaret!

Room Tip: I think all of the rooms are gorgeous ones.

It has beautiful decor and food. My bed was soft like a cloud. The owners are very kind and helpful. It was better than any hotel. The decor is like a castle. I had a private bathroom attached to my room.

We were very pleased with everything about our stay. It was the first time we had slept in a 4-poster bed! The room was spacious with en-suite shower,all very clean and comfortable..
Margaret and Neil made us very welcome. Breakfast was delicious!
Bluebell House has a great location - a short walk to Eden Court theatre and cinema and also handy for going into town.
We would definitely stay there again next time we are in Inverness.

We stayed at the Bluebell House for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the first room which was really large and comfy and cosy. We also really appreciated the dvd's provided. The breakfast was delicious and all the service we received was very personal and friendly.

We didnt book in advance and just parked and started asking for available triple rooms. Neil, the owner of Bluebell and the second B&B that we asked, presented us with an option of a twin room and a single. Although it was not what we were looking he was very polite and friendly. This was the only place that make us feel like home. Excellent service, really nice place, extraordinary food, very clean. We had scheduled just one night to stay at Inverness and we stayed two just because of Neil's service.

I stayed at Bluebell House for one night over the Valentine's weekend 2014, and have seldom had such a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Perfectly located near the centre of Inverness with a very short walk to the Kitchen (definitely worth a visit) and the theatre.

The B&B provides on site parking, so I didn't have to fight for parking in the area. I think it would have been difficult to find parking as it is a busy part of the city. The main road goes just past the B&B, but this is not noticeable at all, even when sitting in the front room for breakfast. Incredibly well sound-proofed.

The breakfast was great. Good size portion for the cooked full breakfast and the pancakes were deemed "very fluffy!".

The four-poster bed was the most comfortable thing I have slept in, and the bathroom was a good size and very clean.

I would definitely stay at the Bluebell again if I go to Inverness.

Room Tip: Four poster bed was great!

Hello again, We just love it when we get a review like this one. I remember that when you came down for breakfast you told me how comfortable the bed was so I'm delighted that you mentioned it in your review. I would love to take credit for the 'fluffy' pancakes but my dear wife would have something to say about that if I did. So glad you enjoyed you stay with us.

We stayed at Bluebell House in August 2013.
The room and on-suite-bathroom was very clean.
The room and the whole house was very "cosy" and beautiful.
Perfect parking for our motorcycles within their yard with a stone wall around.
The owners were very nice and helpful and the breakfast service was excellent!!!

If we ever come to Inverness again we will certainly stay at Bluebell House.

Hello, Thank you very much for taking the time and trouble to write a review for us. We're very glad you enjoyed your stay at our house. Yes, the car park is especially suitable for bikes as the high stone wall gives a bit of privacy allowing them to be tucked away out of sight. Come back and see us again sometime.
