Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First impressions weren't great, the owner seemed unfriendly and I didn't feel welcome. Something about me saying I was bringing a jack russell and hoping my dog had done her business before heading up to the room, I felt this was a bit rude and confusing.

I think this was due to needing time to get to know the hotel owner, who was very nice and friendly the next morning at breakfast.

Although the hotel is a bit of a walk from the center (and it was raining) there are plenty of places to dine nearby, and the 15 minute walk into Inverness is still doable.

The Snow goose do a great dinner.

The hotel room was a little small, and the pillow and duvet were way too thick to get comfy, although you'll certainly not get a cold nights sleep.

Breakfast itself was fantastic, none of that greasy nonsense, tattie scone fried bread rubbish on most Scottish greasy spoon plates. This hotel served a nice hot breakfast with link sausage, lean bacon,and plenty more to choose from including cereals tea and coffee. No complaints there at all! Set me right up for the day ahead.

Pet friendly aswell which was a bonus, our dog even got a bowl of butchers for breakfast which she scoffed in seconds.

Cant say fairer than that.

Overall good value for money.

The review was originally written for Booking.com - forgive the style.

Liked:

It's a lovely place located 10 minutes walk from the centre. The owner is great and very accommodating - you can choose what you want to have for breakfast ( vegetarian options available) and even though we misread dining hours, he still prepared it for us. Room was very clean and comfy, also warm. I was initially afraid it might be a bit noisy because of the train tracks running nearby, but couldn't hear a thing.

Disliked:

As most guest houses in the UK, this one also had an electric shower, which would affect the water pressure. Not a major inconvenience, but would be awesome to have a regular shower.

It was a mistake to only stay one night; wish we had more time with Ross in Inverness. Ross is an exceptional host: generous, friendly, calm, and thoughtful. There was nothing we needed. He even went out of his way with our dogs, giving them extra treats and loads of attention. We accidently left some items behind and he retrieved them for us, even though he was off-site. He made some great recommendations for places to see and where to eat. Breakfast was a feast too! Even got me to try black pudding and haggis; must say pretty good too. We couldn't have asked for a better host and comfortable place to stay.

Breakfast was excellent, with continental and cooked. Good COVID protocols in place. Only 15mins walk into town for Morrisons, restaurants and shops or Inverness train station. My major gripe with this B&B are the windows which are not all double glazed and it really makes a difference as there is a lot of noise from the traffic. There is a busy road nearby which really needs double glazing to filter it out. The blinds in the bathroom should also be wider and in black and not white as I did wonder if they were providing enough privacy as the bathroom faced the main road and Premier Inn’s car park across the road. For this reason, I wouldn’t stay here again as I need quiet.

From the minute we arrived nothing was too much trouble. We and our dogs were made to feel really welcome. The dogs were treated to a sausage when they came back from their morning walk. Clean and tidy place with good amenities near by. Parking was OK. Good enclosed dig walking field (frazer Park) 5 minutes away in car with friendly people. Morrisons just down the road. Good full English or Scottish if you like. Cereals, juice all the usual.

We will definitely stay again.

Ross couldn’t do enough to ensure our stay was comfortable, friendly, welcoming and fun. The ultimate host and nothing was too much.
Breakfast was on point and lots to choose from. Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely be back!
For those fit enough, it is about a 20 minute walk from the centre or a 5 minute drive.
Our first time in Inverness and it was just perfect.

Called at what was probably a busy time. Many thanks to Ross(?) for being so kind and understanding over the phone. My enquiry was not the easiest and he was really helpful and good humoured. Great customer service. Top marks.

Extremely good 2 night stay in a generous sized King room, very nicely styled and well maintained and spotless. The area is quite peaceful in the evening. Great breakfasts.
This is an easy walk into the town centre. Ample parking behind the house.
Host Ross was most hospitable. This was a great stay.

My wife & I have just spent an enjoyable 3 nights in Royston guest house. Ross has been an excellent host & the breakfast's were super. While the steps were steep for carrying bags it was not an issue. Only a 10 minute walk into the city centre. We would certainly stay again if in Inverness again.
