We had a great time in Inverness. Eleanor was a great host and had some great suggestions for things to do- you MUST go to Hootinany up the street- best bar& neighboring dance club we went to the whole trip! Be mindful there are many stairs at Castle View Inn! Also, you must stay for the breakfast- it was amazing!

Wife and I stayed for 2 nights and loved this guest house, maybe the most. Do not stay here for the view of the Castle, though the view couldn't better. Stay here because it is the most comfortable guest house in this price range. They really have something special here. Location, friendly hostess, darling pet Mia, and a delicious and...

I can not imagine a better experience than the one we had with Eleanor at Castle View Guesthouse. The home itself is warm and beautifully decorated. The room was spacious and clean with modern amenities and a phenomenal view. The breakfast was ridiculous - I will be dreaming of that breakfast for years to come. But the crown jewel of...

We spent two nights at the Castleview B&B. Eleanor is a gracious and enthusiastic hostess and makes you feel at home right away. Her B& B is on a corner as you turn the corner after the bridge in Inverness. People just pull up on the curb and unload. Eleonore will show you a lot down a pretty street a...

A lovely B&B in a great location in Inverness. The building is full of character and very well maintained and Eleanor was wonderful host. The breakfast was great and there is massive choice and the whole place is spotlessly clean, would recommend and would stay again.

We had a reservation but there was a mix up on their part so they didn't have our names, but luckily they had room and we were able to stay for the night. Eleanor was very apologetic and accommodating. She packed us a nice box lunch since we had to catch the train to London at 7:45 am. She made...

We have put quite a few of our guests to this B&B and every time we have picked our guests up in the morning they all have great reviews about this place. I met the owner once and she is a lovely lady that will look after your very need.
