False claims Like I told your friend she booked a small double room single occupancy surly she nos the difference between single and double occupancy room , I am glad you booked alternative accommodation hopefully this time it was for two people not one it’s not but one get one free here , your friend also never paid as her credit card declined and she knew this before making false claims about not getting a refund no refund due as did not PAY It’s very sad indeed that people have to vent there anger online when they don’t get there own way

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.

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.

We just come back from a 3 day stay and would definitely recommend this place. Beautiful guest house with a lovely decorated room that had everything, including comfortable beds and great shower. Perfectly cleaned and made up every day. Great location. Plenty of car park spaces.  Excellent breakfast.  Manager was very friendly and accommodating.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Considering you were the one ranting , screamimg and shouting over the phone about haveing to work from home. not my problem , brush up on your telephone manners and maybe poeple will be a bit more understanding Manners cost nothing. This is simply a review left in revenge as you did not get your own way Grow up.Just a reminder royston guest house will not put up with abusive behaviour over the phone.
