I stayed for a few nights for a work trip and I’m really happy we were able to get these rooms at relatively short notice thanks to a cancellation. My room was well kitted out with everything I needed and even a few little extras. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was great - really set me up for a long day. I’m quite fussy about cleanliness in guest accommodation and I think this was possibly the cleanest guest house I’ve ever stayed in. I think you’d struggle to get better value for money in this category of accommodation. Definitely recommended and I will visit again in future with my family!

This was a very late booking as our original B&B was going to provide ‘breakfast in a bag’. Covid was given as the reason but we have not had that problem at other locations. The subsequent booking turned out to be full but they helped us relocate to Acorn Guest House which turned out to be fine. Perhaps the breakfast would benefit from fresher pastries but overall it was a god experience with a friendly owner. Good value

The Acorn Guest House and its proprietors, Elizabeth and Grant were a highlight in our trip in Scotland. The home is lovely and well-appointed. Breakfast was delicious - highly recommend getting the full Scottish breakfast. The house is within walking distance to downtown Inverness and Elizabeth offered many recommendations for where to eat. They were also very personable hosts and offered us many suggestions of places to visit nearby. A wonderful place to stay!
