“Really lovely B&B”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Really lovely B&B. The room was really comfortable and clean, with a lot of attention to detail. The owners were very accomodating and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious, and even catered to my fussy eating. Overall excellent value for money! Would definitely recommend this B&B to anybody staying in visiting Inverness.

This guest house is really good value. Great room and great breakfast. The ideal place to stay the night before taking part in the Inverness half marathon. Owners were very friendly and helpful even though I arrived somewhat later than the final check-in time of 7pm.

We have stayed at the Avalon a few times now for hospital appointments. We live on a remote island so these visits are always time consuming and stressful. Val and Paul go out of their way to accommodate us and make us feel at home. They are always available without being intrusive which is very much appreciated. The rooms are very pretty, clean and comfortable. And the breakfasts are perfect.

A friend and I were looking for somewhere to stay after a day of hillwalking in the local area. The accommodation was perfect. The rooms are large, spotlessly clean and well maintained whilst the ensuite shower room was large, warm and supplied with everything needed to freshen up after a day in the hills.
The B&B is 15 minutes walk in to the city centre and although on a main road there was absolutely no noise from traffic. The bed was very comfortable and I had a great night's sleep.
Breakfast was excellent and the owners were happy to stand and chat afterwards. Too much is said of the poor standards of hospitality in the UK compared to other countries but the Avalon B&B shows how it should be done.
We'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: The room I had was on the ground floor towards the back of the house but the entire building is mode...

This is my first visit to the guest house and I can truly say it won't be the last. You receive first class treatment from the minute you are, the house is clean, warm and very welcoming. The rooms are spacious and very well presented and as for the hosts Val and Paul 2 nicer people you could not get.

Thank you
