“Real home away from home”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

After driving from London via Edinburgh, what a wonderful welcome we received from Camilla who made us feel at home immediately. We spent three wonderful nights at Cavelle House in a very clean, comfortable and homely room with the most beautiful view of the river Ness and enjoyed the best walk ever on the walkway of the river. The breakfasts are legendary and is still being talked about and compared with every breakfast we have! Being tourists on our own, Camilla was very helpful in giving us tips about sightseeing of north and west Scotland and good places to eat. We will definitely go back if the opportunity arises! Thanks Camilla and Neil. Johann and Annette Avenant, Pretoria, South Africa - May 2012.

B&B is decorated nicely, well situated, well priced, and nice people running it. I was happy with the cost and the entire experience. Breakfast was good but the only comment I have is about the breakfast, and this is more of a personal issue as opposed to a complaint. You have to write down what you want fro breakfast the evening before, which is fine, but then I was asked at breakfast what I wanted? The second day I had written a different breakfast combination down but was still bought what I'd asked for the day before. The salt shakers were empty and brown sauce sachets not replenished. On day 1 I was given 2 eggs, 2 tattie scones and 2 sausages, but on day 2 I was only allowed 1 tattie scone and 1 egg. Otherwise, everything was great and I would certainly come back.

Loved this place. For a reasonable price provided a huge room (ensuite) a massive delicious breakfast and, best of all, a comfortable space for our French Bulldog.
Right across from the Ness River (canal?) and the small but beautifully kept Cavell park this place is a must do. The owners are super cool too!

Stayed one night on a motorbike tour of Scotland. Camilla was very welcoming and chatty and keen to ensure we were settled and comfortable. Lovely big old room with high ceiling overlooking with a view to the river and a nice ensuite. It is true to say as another reviewer pointed out that the large windows mean you can be seen in the bathroom if you don't close the blinds.... although I think it harsh to mark them down just because you are too lazy to close the blinds!

Safe parking am the rear for the bikes/ cars and a short walk down the river to the town centre where there are plenty of good restaurants and pubs for the evening. And a good breakfast in the morning to see us on our way. We did get blocked in the car park in the morning but Camilla soon roused the other guest to move the car so we could go on our way. Overall very good B&B in Inverness and would stay again.

two weeks at cavell house this year, not our first stay
very grateful for the good company of our friendly and generous hosts

the breakfast is first quality and plentiful, including choices for vegetarians (which we enjoyed)
premises are kept exceptionally clean

those visiting the highlands to enjoy (and learn from) the beautiful and traditional celtic spirit may be especially pleased
neil and camilla (and family) are providing more than lodging; they are magnanimous hosts, genuine old school and without pretension

heartful visitors, please take note and give as good as you get!

We stayed one night in July. Great location near the river and only a short walk into town. The house and rooms have plenty of character and our room was spacious with a big bathroom. Choice and quality of breakfast was extremely good. Only thing I would suggest would be, hire a gardener! First impressions are important and the gardens and car parking area are in need of some attention.

nice rooms! warm and quiet. I missed the delicious breakfast so much! Thank you! it was really a good experience for my first time in a B&B. The hostess is really kind and helpful, who prepared breakfast for us as early as 7.30, coz we were leaving at 8.30. 房间很精致,早餐美味,谢谢!如果价格能再稍微便宜点就完美了!
