Cavell House
Ranked #80 of 232 Inverness B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 10, 2008

A warm welcome hid the deficiencies of Cavell Guest House. The decor and bedcovers were colourful. Bonnie Prince Charlie would have liked it. We booked a twin room. Our large room had a double and two single beds in it. The beds were worn out. A very large TV, reception passable.
Good En-suite with clear glass windows and a good view of the river. Which means that people can see you washing if you do not draw the blinds. I was not comfortable and not happy here I would not recommend it. Expensive and poor quality at £80.00 for two people one nights B&B.

What a wonderful little gem.We have just returned from Inverness and were fortunate to have booked our 7 night stay at the Cavell guest house. The location was excellent ,and within a few minutes of the river, bars, restaurants and town centre.

Our hosts Camilla and Neil were a friendly, genuine, delightful couple and were so knowledgeable and informed about their wonderful country and were able to give us lots of wonderful suggestions of places to visit. I could have listended to Neil for hours as I urged him to tell me about the geography, history and tales from the past.

Our room which had a four poster was beautiful and quiet and the bathroom and shower were excellent and everything was spotlessly clean. There were loads of little extras which made everything very special.

The breakfast were the best we have ever had anywhere! The starters were endless, with fruit, cereals, yoghurt, juices and seeds and the full Scottish breakfast was a site to behold. There were also other alternative choices including a platter of fresh fruit with an incredible choice, or kippers or haddock. Everything was totally delicious, beautifully presented and nothing was too much trouble............ and for something extra special ask for an afteroon tea on your return and you are in heaven.

If ever we are back in this wonderful location, we would definitely not stay anywhere else, you really couldn't do better and the value for money is excellent.

After over a 600 mile drive to Inverness from the South of England I can't image a more comfortable, charming, welcoming and friendly place to end a long journey. We were in Inverness for a friend's wedding and found the B&B run by Camilla and Neil to be the perfect base.

The house is centrally located, 5 minutes from the castle, 10 minutes from the cathedral and overlooks some very attractive rivers and gardens. There are many bars and restaurants a short stroll away.

All rooms are charming in a country style and have all the little touches that can make a B&B feel like home from home. We had a four-poster bed, which was a really nice surprise since we hadn't asked for one. In our room there were books on the shelves, a fresh fruit bowl, period clocks and other homely touches. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided along with biscuits. Our room had a wall-mounted flat screen TV. Everything was immaculately clean.

All the rooms are ensuite with both a bath and an overhead shower. Our bathroom was a really good size too. I enjoy a long soak after a hard day and a whole range of bubble baths and bath soaks were on hand. There were was even a candle, in case a candle-lit bath was the order of the day. If you want to go one step further and treak yourself to a footspa, then you can help yourself to one on the landing. Camilla had thoughtfully provided footcreams too.

I can honestly say we were treated to the best breakfast I've ever been served in a B&B. The dining room is a wonderfully attractive room, full of antiques and polished to perfection. The buffet table is laid with cereals, fruit, yogurt, preserves, bread, oat cakes and juices to help yourself to. Cooked breakfasts are ordered the evening before and will not fail to please. I tried both the traditional Scottish cooked breakfast and the porridge. Both were perfect. There's not many places were they seem able to poach an egg properly. Cavell House is one of them.

Not only do Camilla and Neil cook an excellent breakfast but they are incredibly friendly hosts and happy to help where ever they can. I will recommend this place to all and can not praise the place highly enough. I hope I get a excuse to go back one day.
