What a beautiful B&B this is, Elanor was so sweet! We didn't arrive until late in the evening but, she waited up for us and totally went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed to make our overnight stay enjoyable. I can't say enough about the view from the front of the house, just incredible...

We chanced upon the b&b and were so pleased. It is immaculate, very quaint, perfectly located and Eleanor couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Her pup Mia is absolutely adorable and so well behaved! Breakfast was top notch, much better than most hotel breakkies. Would absolutely recommend this inn, and will definitely return next time we tour Scotland.

We stayed two nights at this lovely B&B. We had 4 rooms and each was absolutely spotless and very updated. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms had enough room, but more than the facilities, Eleanor is a hostess without equal. She throughly oriented us to the area and the B&B is across the river to restaurants and shops. Everything at...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Castle View. Eleanor was a delight and recommended a lovely walk and restaurants. The room was very comfortable with a great view and the breakfast was excellent. We hope to return.

We had an awesome stay at castleview, which is very centrally located and good for exploring the town. The view of our room was just across from the castle and we could look at the night scene without stepping out in the cold. The breakfast was delicious and the room was romantic, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Eleanor was very...

During a golf trip to Scotland, our foursome stayed at the Castle View Guesthouse, a Bed and Breakfast in Inverness, Scotland. The view was incredible! Right out our bedroom window was the River Ness (which flows into the Loch Ness - hello Nessie!) and across the river on top of a hill was the Inverness Castle. The Guesthouse itself had...

Eleanor was a phenomenal host! We had some issues with our rental car and arrived to Castle View pretty late at night. She was very understanding and took wonderful care of us when we arrived. Breakfast was delicious and the view of the castle was an added bonus. She was also a great resource for local highlights, which was a...

Centrally located in downtown Inverness with views of the River and the Castle. Location is great as everything is on the doorstep. Eleanor is a very friendly host and nothing was too much trouble for her. She is ably assisted by Asia who is Polish which was great for my Polish wife and kids. My kids though were completely smitten...

Our hostess, Eleanor, could not have been more lovely. Our room was comfortable and clean-En suite was fully updated and the perfect size for a couple. The view of the castle was awesome, however, the location itself was perfect and right in the middle of everything. AND, the full Scottish breakfast every morning AWESOME!!
