Perfect location and possibility for parking my car. Very nice and old house with all the facilities you need. Free WiFi. Breakfast. Staff give me a map and directions for food and things to see. Highly recommended.

Probably more a tourist b&b than business but when the citybhoteks wanted stupid money for a room I opted for this one at a reasonable rate and found it to be friendly clean comfortable and central. No complaints what so ever. Don't do evening meal but that is more of a busines traveller requirement.

Requested deluxe room but no internet. Friends in standard room got internet fine, but no view. Food, service, and proprietress were fabulous!!! I'd recommend 100% if Internet is not required, and 80% of Internet is needed. It is available downstairs for certain.

The landlady, Fiona, was very kind and helpful. The room was clean and fully equipped. There was wifi in the room but the building is old so there are squeaky floor boards. The breakfast was lovely. It is situated within easy walking distance of the centre and opposite the cathedral.

We stayed two nights. We got a very warm welcome from the owner. She gave us information about where to eat, drink shop etc. You can order your choice of breakfast the day before. The room was big and clean and quiet. It is only a short walk to restaurants, pubs and shopping. We had a very pleasant stay.

10 minutes, max to city centre, with a view of the castle. The proprietor was quite informative and helpful. Very clean room and very nice breakfast. Our room was on the tip top of the MacDonald House. It was very nice for a family. Proprietor strives to provide service. We had an issue with the room we had booked in...

Hotel accommodation in Inverness is outrageously expensive to say the least. I paid more for this v small room in a guest house than I did for a huge room with outstanding facilities at the Westin, Xiamen over a week ago. Nothing wrong with this place in principle - it's clean (particularly the bathrooms) but why is everything so heavily...

Hi I am sorry to hear ,that your stay was not as good as you would of liked. The pillows on the bed are suited for most people, but there were softer pillows in the wardrobe. As far as the ordering the breakfast the night before, I like to try and give a good service in the mornings.

The location is great! A lot of thought has gone in detailing and it shows! We just walked in and were lucky to get a room. The hostess (can't believe I forgot to ask her name!) was very warm and unlike some of the reviews would have you believe , a good cook. Our room was nice big and clean....
