A group of 6 of us stayed here in July. Our hosts, Nan and Ritchie, were superb even booking local resturants for us on both evenings. The guest house has some parking at the rear so bikes were off the roadside. It is situated very close to the town centre on a fairly quiet street within easy walking distance to the city centre. The best thing I can say is "We'll be back"

We love the Westbourne! This is our second year staying there. It is in a perfect central location for walking many areas in Inverness and you get a quiet nights sleep! The breakfast is awesome and hosts are wonderfully friendly & helpful.

This is our second visit to the guest house and Inverness. George is a cwery friendly host and gave us a suggestion of a local hotel for dinner the Waterfront and we were not disappointed. A good spot for walking into town we found it very quiet and with a lovely view of the River Ness.The breakfast was tasty and fresh you could choose from full Scottish or continental they also had gluten free options which I thought was very good. the rooms had tea and coffee and a small fridge with fresh milk in a fridge down the hall. Comfy bed and own bathroom with a small couch and T.V would recommend to stay when visiting Inverness.

The Westbourne guest house is a great place to stay. George is very welcoming and his hospitality is fab. There a little extras in your room/en-suite that I have never seen in any another quest house. Would recommend to anyone looking for a central location in Inverness. Would definitely return.

Westbourne Guest House offered us a warm welcome upon arriving. George was very helpful by giving us Tips on what to do and where to eat. Our room was clean an light and certainly big enough for the two of us. The breakfast menu was great.

George was a lovely host, was very helpful and gave a warm welcome. The BnB is close to the town centre and easy to get around. The room was cosy, clean and had everything we need. Would high recommend this place.

Had 2 nights in this lovley guesthouse. They are really attentive and if you let them know about an issue they take care of it at once. It is central and yet quiet. I can really recomend this for a lovely time in Inverness

Great B&B in Inverness. We could walk to most restaurants. There was parking available, which was helpful since we had a car, and getting to the hotel was easy. Room was clean and pretty spacious. George, our host, was amazing. Cooked a fantastic breakfast (highly recommend including in your visit) and we learned a lot. He gave us all the insights and tips that would've been hard to get elsewhere. Seagulls were fairly loud at night, but I think every place along the river and most in the city itself would have the same issue, so just something to be prepared for. Even with that, I would absolutely stay here again if I am back in Inverness. It was the right price point and exactly what we were looking for for our visit.

Thank you so much for such a lovely review. It's really humbling to get such positive feedback and I'm glad I could be a help to you enjoying your stay in Inverness. The seagulls can be a bit noisy at times and it's something that all establishments with river views will have to put up with from time to time. Every year the council promise solutions and every year they fail to deliver. Best Wishes, G

George gave us a warm welcome when we arrived on the morning of our stay, kindly letting us leave our bags well before check-in time. He is a very friendly and personable host and his mother is a lovely presence in the place as well. He gave us a wonderful first floor room overlooking the River Ness and we felt really comfortable and at home. Excellent facilities, a delicious breakfast and superb location a short walk over a nearby footbridge to the centre of town.

Wonderful stay! The room was clean and bright. Opening the windows let a lovely river breeze in. The bed was comfortable. George cooked a delicious breakfast in the morning to cap off a lovely stay. Look forward to staying again next time I come to town.

Thanks for the great review, I'm happy you enjoyed your stay. We're so lucky they built the river so near the guest house!! Seriously, I know what you mean about the river breeze, especially on these hot summer days. Thanks for staying and we hope to see you again in the future. G
