We had a lovely 2 week stay here. The location is ideal, peaceful, quiet but oly a short walk from the centre of Inverness with its restaurants and pubs. The breakfast was great, cooked to order and/ or buffet selection. The room was comfortable and roomy, with everything we needed. The hostess was quietly attentive and welcoming

Absolutely lovely guesthouse with spotlessly clean rooms with a very homely feel. Gwen and Andy were very helpful in every way possible. Breakfast was superb with plenty of choices from fruits, cereals etc. Also choice to have a cooked breakfast too. My husband and i stayed here for a week and couldn't have had a better stay thanks to Gwen and Andy . Will definitely be back ☺. 100% perfect stay

We had a very warm welcome at Ardgowan, which is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Our room was quiet and well equipped. Ardgowan is very well located, a short walk from riverside walks, restaurants and the city centre.

We could not fault our stay here. Our first experience of staying in B and B so a little apprehensive. We were made so welcome by Gwen who accommodated our earlier than expected arrival. Our room was exceptional, beautifully decorated and well furnished with en-suite. Felt very clean and covid secure. Good choice for breakfast and food of high standard. Very conveniently situated to walk to town and we would definitely return if ever in Inverness.

Very good location - right in the centre of the town! Parking a bit tricky as limited space on the driveway! Felt very welcomed from the moment we arrived. The rooms were very clean and all covid guidelines adhered to. Lots of choice at breakfast including cereals, cooked breakfast, fruits, juices, teas and coffee. Walls are a bit thin so could hear other guests snoring.

The location is just a quick seven minute walk to the city centre, the River Ness and all of the restaurants. Gwen provides a welcoming place to stay that is quiet and offers large modern rooms and private bathrooms. Her breakfasts were excellent, with everything from croissants, fruit and yogurt to a full Scottish. We stayed here as our base for the Loch Ness Marathon and to explore the area and it could not have been better. When we return to Inverness this will be our “home”.

To be honest, this was my first stay at a B&B, but after this experience, it won't be my last! We arrived late the first evening and were leaving early both mornings. Gwen and her husband went out of their way to accomodate us and be sure we had something available for breakfast and a fruit bar to take with us. Since it was 2 friends traveling together, we were able to get a room with 2 beds and an en suite bathroom. We were traveling in June, made our reservation months in advance, and got a beautiful room at a much better price than the local hotels. By far, the best value we found during our 2 weeks in Scotland!

Very good B&B about 10 minutes walk from Inverness centre. The rooms were ample sized and comfy. The hosts were friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was excellent. A suitable stop over for the NC500 or for a longer stay in the area.

Just had an overnight stay in this B&B and was SO impressed, i could not recommend it highly enough! The whole house is stunningly decorated and spotlessly clean - and our room was beautiful and plenty big enough for us. Gwen is a wonderful host: so so pleasant, friendly and accomodating. Breakfast was also lovely. I honestly cannot recommend this place enough based on price, location and service. Will 100% be returning.
