“Simply wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

We just loved this place - a wonderful, tastefully decorated room (like the rest of the house), very good beds with crispy fresh bed linen, lovely home baked cake on arrival and a comfy breakfast room which we could have also used as a sitting room in the evening - unfortunately we were too tired. Terri and her husband were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Early breakfast on a Saturday was no problem and the food was delicious. Fresh fruit salad and natural yoghurt, none of the horrible little pre-packed jams and butter. You could walk to the city centre/ railway and busstation but as we had lots of heavy luggage we took a taxi and it was less than 5.- £. Will definetely be back !

We stayed two nights at An Grianan and it was fantastic. Beautiful, immaculately decorated, spotlessly clean room that outclasses any hotel I have ever stayed in. Beautiful comfortable bed also. Breakfasts were amazing too. Terri and Eddy's knowledge of tourist attractions and history was also extremely helpful so we didn't miss any of the big sights (and there are plenty of big sights). We were not planning on driving to Tongue, but on Terri's advice did so, and it turned out to be one of the most amazing places we have ever seen. So glad we went there. For anyone thinking about booking into An Grianan, just do it, it'll be one of the nicest places you will ever stay at.

Stayed here for one night as a single traveller. Terri and her husband were very welcoming and helpful, really making you feel at home. The rooms are a great size and extremely cosy, the en-suite bathroom was modern and spotlessly clean. Bed was nice and comfy.

Given a very warm welcome with a freshly made fairy cake which was tasty. Breakfast the next morning was made to order, full Scottish and toast with selection of cereals and fruit.

Only 5 mins walk maximum to Inverness town centre.

Would definitely return. Thank you very much for a lovely stay.

so glad you felt at home and enjoyed your stay with us, when travelling alone it is so important to feel relaxed and at home, even if it was only one night.
Hope to see you back again for a longer stay, thanks for the positive review.

I have the pleasure of submitting a review for a fantastic bed and breakfast in Inverness. I would feel sorry for anyone who stayed in Inverness but did not book to stay here! We arrived early and after telephoning the owners we were welcomed into their home and just chilled in the lovely room. The welcoming cakes and warm hospitality was greatly appreciated. Great night's sleep nd fantastic breakfast. I cannot think of any improvement to An Grianan, I hope that if we return to Inverness we can book again.

Guys, we are bowled over by this review making our response embarrassingly difficult, I am of course delighted that you were so pleased with your stay, that you felt relaxed and comfortable which is always our aim. I am pleased you enjoyed your cakes, I love baking and do so daily its a form of relaxing for me and extra pleasing when it is so appreciated.
All it remains is for me to thank you very much for your very positive review and hope we can welcome you back to An Grianan sometime soon, many thanks Terri and Eddie

We recently spent 3 nights at this B&B (early April). A lovely comfortable B&B, very clean, tidy and quiet. Our room was a good size and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely wit plenty of choice. Lorraine was particularly impressed with the fresh fruit salad. Our hosts were very pleasant and nothing as too much trouble. The home made cakes on arrival (and in the afternoon) were a really nice touch.
The B&B is literally 5 minutes walk from the town centre and perhaps 6-7 minutes from the rail and bus stations.
Inverness is a lovely little City and we found several really nice restaurants.
Thoroughly recommended if you are visiting Inverness.

Hi both, thanks for taking time out to review us, and delighted to hear that you so enjoyed your stay and that both the fresh fruit salad and home baking were enjoyed. Once the summer months come in and our own soft fruits are available the fresh fruit salads are even nicer.
I agree Inverness is a lovely spot and so easy for exploring the highlands, you can go head far west or north for the day and have the benefits of the city to come back to in the evenings.
Look forward to you returning to see us again sometime in the future.
