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... More

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.

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... More

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.

I stayed here for one night while on a fishing trip. What a Find!! Marvellous view of the castle from our very comfortable room. We couldn't ask for more. Even a generous measure of malt was given us as a welcome drink. The breakfast was extraordinary with a superb selection of fresh fruit followed by the full Scottish breakfast. We... More
