Fantastic weekend away with my girlfriend whom had her first experience of Inverness hospitality, and Joan and Javed didn't disappoint. They made her as welcome as they have made me in the last 5 years I have been visiting the beautiful city. The guest house continues to be such a warm atmosphere and the hosts' caring, considerate and accommodating to...

There 1 night, May. I nearly missed booking this hotel because it was in the 'BNB and Inns' section of Inverness accommodation (rather than 'Hotels') in Trip Advisor; in my mind it is a boutique hotel. Anyway. (Lesson: guest houses are often better than 'hotels'.) I stayed only for 1 night because I was en route to Lewis. Compact room...

This hotel was not what I expected at all. I was skeptical when I went to check-in and was not expecting to find such a lovely accommodation. The hotel was clean, wonderfully situated, and surprisingly quiet for its location. The staff was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. the one drawback was the three flights of steps to my room after...

The room was a bit small, but quite lovely. The concierge was very helpful. The bathroom was particulrly well-done. In terms of location we could not have done better, we walked out the front door straight onto the trail by the river. There were daffodils everywhere!

Very friendly staff and quite knowledgeable about the area! A more than decent room which was in the back - so while it didn't have a view of the river - it was a very quiet sleep during the night. Breakfast was delicious and location was excellent. Would stay there again as more than worth the price ;)

This B&B is good, spoilt only by the compulsory TV in the breakfast room. I'm from a generation that doesn't expect or want that. Rooms are comfortable. My en suite bathroom was a little small, but well designed.

This was my first stay here, having been recommended by friends. I was greeted at reception by the owners who were both friendly and attentive. My room felt a bit small and the décor was a little dated, but it was exceptionally clean, warm and well appointed. The view from the window, particularly at nightfall, was quite stunning.The bathroom looked...
