“Most welcoming and comfortable B & B”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We stayed for 4 nights in a very spacious, very clean room with exceptionally welcoming and helpful hosts, Bob and MaryAnn. Breakfasts were delicious and ample. Everything possible was done to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. Would highly recommend.

Apologies for the belated review Bob & MaryAnn but better late than never. We were with you on 9th & 10th May this year and in Scotland to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary with my cousin and her husband. We couldn't have chosen a better B & B. Bob & MaryAnn are a charming couple and did everything they could to make us welcome and they are very helpful recommending places to eat out and places to visit. Bob is an excellent cook and we enjoyed our breakfasts in the dining room which overlooks a beautiful garden. We missed these when we moved on to our self catering bungalow on the Saturday! St Ann's house is located within walking distance of the town and the river and there is plenty of parking available at the B & B. We can highly recommend St Ann's and we hope we may return in the future as we really enjoyed our stay in Inverness. It is very good base to tour from. Many thanks Bob & MaryAnn.

Room Tip: No problems at all with noise either from traffic or other guests.

Home comforts are what we pride our selves on and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. As you say Inverness is an excellent base from which to tour with a variety of tours by coach or train, but it is even better if you have your own transport and can explore some of the most spectacular countryside in Europe. Haste ye back.

My family (husband and two young boys) and I stayed 2 nights at St Anns. The house is lovely and in a beautiful and quiet part of the town within an easy walk to the river and town centre. The hosts Bob and Mary are exceptionally warm and made our stay very happy! Would highly recommend!

We are delighted to meet so many people from around the world. It is a privilege to meet people from a variety of cultures and to impart our knowledge of Scotland. It is a long journey for many guests and we try to make their stay as comfortable as possible. I know the boys didn't see Nessie this time - perhaps next visit!

We had a very clean and spacious room and bathroom. They welcomed us into their home and provided a great Scottish breakfast in the morning. They suggested the night we arrived to walk into Inverness and visit a local pub, The Hootananny, we had such a great time there and enjoyed being in an authentic Scottish pub. Would definitely stay with them again if we ever visit Inverness again!

Thanks for taking time to recommend our house. I am delighted you enjoyed Hootenanny's - a fantastic music venue and only one of a number in the city. In fact Inverness has a substantial number of quality live music venues - and the great thing is they are all free entry. Come back and listen to some more music!

Stayed at St. Ann's for one night on my own. Bob & Mary Ann are a lovely couple & very helpful. The room was small but very cosy & clean. The breakfast selection is superb & much better than in many hotels! Would definitely come back to stay there.

We are pleased that we were able to contribute to your experience in Scotland. The room is small, but it only a place to sleep because there are so many things to see and do in Inverness and the surrounding area. Thank you for recommending us.

Two couples from Australia stayed here in May for 1 night. We were welcomed as long lost friends. Bob gave us good advice on places to eat and visit. Our rooms were lovely and we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast the next day overlooking the beatiful garden. Highly recommend St Anns as a place to stay.

We stayed 2 nights with friends, and revelled in the hospitality, nice room and great breakfast overlooking a beautiful garden.Bob went the extra mile for us, even driving us into town for dinner when we were running late, and with great advice on sites to see. A&G.

I am so pleased you enjoyed your visit and experienced the renowned Scottish hospitality. The garden, which is in splendid colour at the moment, is an added bonus and really does give the dining area a room with a view. It's also the ideal place to relax on the long light ( and hopefully warm) nights.
