We booked our room about 15 minutes before we arrived, but it was no problem for our host, Eillidh. She was very welcoming and showed us 2 rooms we could choose from. We picked the one on the 3rd floor overlooking the front street. The bed was super comfy! The bathroom is shared with another room on the floor. Everything was spotless. Breakfast was lovely...yogurt/toppings, energy bites, tea/coffee/juices, fresh berries, and crumpets!!!! Eillidh was very helpul with advice about where to eat dinner in Inverness and what to do/see on our Scotland adventure. Will definitely stay there again.

It's in a good location. There is no free parking there is a pay and display at the end of the road but it was full when we were there and we had to park some distance away. The bed and room was comfortable. It was noisey when people went to the bathroom which was down a flight of stairs. The bathroom was down another flight of stairs which we couldn't be bothered to use for the fear of bumping into other guests.The continental breakfast was adequate but would have liked something more substantial. I had to pay in cash and no receipt was given also we found it overpriced.

We stayed for a couple of nights in this lovely B&B. We chose the attic room and it was plenty big enough with a comfortable bed and big window for viewing across the town. There's no lift so travel light. We had a variety of choice for breakfast and Eilidh was a great host. It is it close to the centre of town only a 5 minute walk to the High Street. There is a quick walk from the station via about 50 stairs or you can walk the long way round with heavier luggage.

We are fairly local to this venue, and were attending a wedding, and decided on staying in Inverness rather than spending a huge amount on a taxi home. The house was lovely, unusually decorated with a mix of styles, and the bed was comfy. The toilet was not an suite, but was literally a few steps away from the room, and the host was fantastic, even when there was a mixup with our keys and we had to waken her in the middle of the night! A lovely unexpected treat.

Everything about our stay was wonderful- we stayed for a week. The house is in a lovely neighborhood and we had a castle view!! Bagpipes played as we saw a beautiful sunset out our window upon arrival. Donna (owner) was wonderful and so helpful when we had some hitches in our travel plans! Conveniently located to public transport, restaurants, and easily walkable to everything we could have wanted! Breakfast was so wonderful and Donna was kind and welcoming. She offered great advice and our neighbors were never an issue. Good wifi and clean bedding, linens, and bathroom (we could tell it was all cleaned as frequently as possible/reasonable). I can't recommend this place enough!! I can't wait to go back :)

b&b is on a very quiet street.the owners are foreign and still need to learn some tricks of this business.that aside,had room 2 on the 2nd floor,which had amazing views over the city and indeed the castle,as suggested.had to ask when breakfast was,which in fact was plentiful and a different more friendly host serving. no lights are put on in the stairwells,which is very unwelcoming,but the bed was super comfy and only 2 rooms on each floor,which worked well for the shared bathroom would I stay here again? yes-but no longer than 2 nights-it filled my requirements for what I needed

I have stayed at a few B&Bs and love the family atmosphere and the flexibility that these establishments can offer compared to the low budget chain hotels. I arrived late at night with my young son .Had an early start the following morning. Explained this to the person that handed us the key. Blank response and informed that she only comes in the morning to do breakfast. No flexibility, no suggestion about eating places. Was not even allowed to leave the bag at the B&B after checkout at 10 am. Same response as above. Breakfast was an ok affair and it was the first time in my life that I was ever served boiled sausage. I complained that the sausages were still cold. They were promptly taken off our plates and warmed in the microwave. Had to also pay in cash. Not warned about this beforehand. All in all an experience not to be repeated and I could certainly not recommend it to anyone. It's still gets a rating because of its excellent location to the city centre and parks. The rooms were clean and the bedroom warm. My recommendation would be to avoid. There are many other places that can offer more value for money.

I stayed here to attend a conference in one of the more expensive hotels - the B&B was more my price range! I was arriving by public transport and missed a bus so, concerned I would miss the 8pm check in time, tried to call. I did struggle to get through, so contacted booking.com with whom I have booked, so contacted the owner and had her call me back. She was very sweet, allowed me to take her mobile number and ring her back when I knew I would arrive. The front door was open and upon knocking on the 'private' door the owner emerged and showed me to my room. It was a neat little double (room 2) on the top floor in the eaves with view to the castle and a shared shower and bathroom right outside. The bed was comfy (although had there been two of us we'd have needed more pillows), there's a tv, kettle, good wifi, lots of plugs.. I guess if you're awkward about sharing a bathroom that's inconvenient (especially when the room next door has rather made themselves at home with all their things all over the place) but it cost £20 more to stay here than in the hostel and it was MUCH nicer (I've stayed in the Inverness hostel before, it's awful.) B&B is like, ten minutes walk from the river and town, in a nice little residential street. The other reviewers who described it as a bad area must have lived very sheltered lives. You get a key from the front door so you can come and go, key for your room. I didn't have breakfast but it smelt good, and the owner was very nice. It was very good of her to be so accommodating with my awkward travel arrangements, and I feel sure if I'd needed anything else from her like more pillows or if something was wrong, she would have fixed it. This B&B is great value for money, not in the absolute centre of town but really, Inverness is not big, and you really do not want to stay in the centre. It's not one of the fancier river-side hotels, but the price reflects that, it was comfortable and cozy with everything you need. I also feel I need to address another reviewer who complained that there was no view of the castle - there is, it's just unfortunately not all rooms in a building can be arranged along the one wall with the best view. Houses are not built like that. It's also worth noting its called the castle view POINT; implying a position from where the castle can be observed. And it can.

Got put into a very nice room at the front of the house - with a view of the street! No castle views at all - the B&B name is quite misleading... While the room was fine, I was a little perturbed to have to use a shared bathroom. But as the price of the room was quite cheap, it was a little sacrifice to the quality of the stay. Nothing bad to sy about the place really. Super comfy bed - so comfy, I slept in next morning, and missed breakfast!
