Inverglen Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 17, 2012

My wife and I stayed for two nights and are certainly glad we chose Inverglen. John and Susan are excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble. When we asked Susan on our second night if she could order a taxi to take us to the restaurant she would not hear of it and organised John to drive us there himself at the appointed time.
The house is spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, good shower, fantastic breakfast in a lovely bright and airy dining room.
Will definitely stay here again next time we are in Inverness.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us - we know how busy this time of year is for you!!! This is praise indeed from someone in the business, so we are delighted that you and your wife enjoyed your stay at Inverglen and your short trip to the Highlands. We're pleased you got to see the salmon leaping at the Falls of Shin, although it is a lovely drive up there anyway!

Hope to see you again in the future.

Kind Regards, Susan & John

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and we are so pleased you both enjoyed your short stay with us. Maybe we will see you again in the future for a photography workshop? We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip to the Highlands, and will take a look at the companies you suggested to get some different prints up on the walls - thanks for the tips!

It was great to hear that you had time to take the back road around Loch Ness past Dores and Foyers - so many people miss out on these views and it is really quite lovely. Were you lucky enough to see a red squirrel? We hope so!

Kind regards, Susan & John

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Whilst we take pride in getting the bed and breakfast bit right, it is also important to us that our guests get the most out of Inverness and we only recommend places to eat that we trust to do a good job. There are a couple of good pubs local to us and we are delighted that they also ticked their boxes for you.

If you are back in Inverness we hope you will choose to stay with us again.

We only spent one night here but boy was it fantastic. Arriving late in the evening on Friday was no trouble for Susan and John who greeted us warmly and offered cake, tea and sweets.
The B&B itself is beautifully kept and our room had those extra special touches to make our stay great. The bed was amazing, the best bed I've slept in so far! The room had plenty of pillows, warm duvet and even though it was June we had the heating on.
The shower was all new and perfect for massage of the back with cute Nessie shower gel.
Breakfast was incredible, the french toast was to die for and the portions more than ample.
I can't recommend this place more, only wished we had more time to stay longer!
Thanks Susan and John!

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your short stay with us, and that our investment in the new water system produced such a memorable shower for you! It's always reassuring to get positive feedback from our guests, so thanks for taking the time to write a review.

Glad you enjoyed the french toast and that the bed was comfy - I guess what most people want from a B&B is a good night's sleep and a good breakfast. So glad we ticked both of those boxes.

We would be delighted to see you again if you are back in Inverness

Arrived for a two night stay (Sat/Sun during golf at Castle Stuart) after 9pm to be welcomed with cups of tea and homemade flapjacks for my wife and I along with juice for the children. One of the boys was fast asleep so Susan helped us in with our luggage. Very helpful. Breakfast in the morning was superb. As your average meat loving male the cooked breakfast was delicious and the home made muffins went down a treat with my wife. Susan was excellent in making sure the boys (ages 1 and 3) got something nice for brekkie too. Private parking great for peace of mind, space so close to town centre (5min walk with kids). The family room was spot on too, spacious and cot ready for the youngest. The room was slightly away from the other rooms too which gave us peace of mind with a crying baby. There were a few others staying and didn't see any with bags under their eyes so couldn't have caused anyone a sleepless night. Thank you both for making us so welcome.

Room Tip: See previous comments regarding the family room off the first landing.

Thanks for writing a review for us, and we are so happy that you and the family enjoyed your stay with us. Glad my cooking and baking went down so well, and that the children had a good time, albeit that they were sleeping in a strange room, in a strange house! Victorian houses are fabulous for their thick walls and sturdy structure, so rest assured no-one would have been disturbed by any noise - in fact they were both really well behaved, and I even got a smile by the last day!!

Hope your trip back to Lewis was good, and maybe we'll see you next year if the golf is here again?

Kind regards, Susan & John
