Very friendly & helpful. The owner Eleanor couldn't have done more for us. She was really helpful in looking up details of places we wanted to get to, & making an appointment at the local medical centre when my wife needed treatment. Our room was large, very comfortable, spotless & had all the usual facilities. There was an excellent & comprehensive Breakfast from 08.30 buffet style with eggs cooked to order. This Guest House is situated right in the centre of town at the end of the main bridge, over looking the Castle across the Ness.
The only negative was no off street parking; but you are in the centre of town & there is a reasonably priced car park (Cathedral car park) 5 min. walk away. It's free to park there from 18.00 to 08.00. There is drop off / pick up space in front of the premises; & there seems to be a much more relaxed attitude to this than in large UK cites. At least 2 flights of stairs will be involved in reaching your room. Over all we thoroughly recommend Castle View Guest House.
