My partner, myself and our 2 year old daughter have just stayed here for 2 nights while over for my friends wedding and had a lovely stay. Sergio is such a nice man and could not make you feel any more welcome. He is very keen to take the time to know about you and nothing is ever to much trouble. The breakfast's were very generous more than you can eat cooked breakfasts, lots of cereal, fresh fruit and more. Also offering us lunches to take for our travelling home which he did not need to do. He was also very understanding of my daughter's tantrums whilst there and makes you feel very comfortable. The rooms are lovely and very clean with a lovely bathroom. He also is very relaxed about curfews and just wants you to relax and enjoy your stay. Also thought it was lovely he got kids yoghurts for my daughter which she loved. Would go back and would highly recommend.

We stayed for two nights in August this year as part of a tour round Scotland and this was easily the nicest place we stayed while there, and one of the best we've been to in years. Sergio was warm and welcoming, and looked after us well including allowing up to put our motorbike safely in his own garden. The Victorian period house is gorgeous, and full of tasteful charm and character. Our room was a brilliant size with a big en suite bathroom, full of light and quirky features. And the bed was so comfortable - all in all a welcome change from the impersonal Travelodges we had stayed at while in other cities! The cooked breakfasts were lovely (and huge!), with a vast selection of cereals, fresh fruits etc as well and he really couldn't do enough to make us feel at home while we were there. He encouraged us to treat the house as our own, making us feel free to use the front lounge to relax in and even bring food back to eat in there if we wished, making it a very relaxed, happy place to stay. Location wise, it was a short walk to the centre of Inverness and the bus station, pubs, restaurants, Castle etc. We would definitely stay here agin if we came to Inverness. Nice to have a host who genuinely wants to make sure you enjoy your stay - top marks!

We cannot recommend this Guest House enough. A beautiful Victorian building in a leafy superb of Inverness. Close to the station, buses, shops and restaurants. It has a lovely charm to it, full of interesting and quirky antiques. Sergio gives guests a genuine, warm welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast was varied, fresh and plentiful.
My husband and I travel a lot and this is definitely one of our top choices and one we will revisit.

Room Tip: We had the lovely room with the painted floorboards.

We stayed at Averon for 3 nights during our 3 week round-trip of Scotland. Right from the start we were made to feel most welcome. Sergio offers great hospitality very much with a "mi casa es su casa" approach to things. Example: When we arrived we opted for the front room as it's slightly bigger than the garden one. Now, once we had unpacked and, well, already used the bathroom, I discovered that the bed actually had a board which didn't allow me (6'4) to stretch that big cabar of mine. Somewhat embarrassed we asked Sergio if we could still swap rooms. His reply: "Here in the Highlands we don't get stressed over these things", and that was that. We moved to the garden room, and he did what was necessary in the other.

At breakfast we were spoilt for choice (incl. plenty of fresh fruit) and offered more to eat than we could possibly have mastered (though I sure tried my best ;). Go for the porridge, if you haven't done so before. It keeps you going for most of the day! Notwithstanding, Sergio asked us if we wanted to help ourselves to a doggybag for our day trip.

Averon is very conveniently located, what with at least 3 places to eat around the corner (yet in a quiet neighbourhood) It's also only a short walk/drive to the centre. Sergio is very happy to give you directions and offer recommendations.

With Sergio and I sharing a keen interest in photography, we enjoyed many a pleasant conversation during our stay, to which one night we were joined by a friend of his. Soon we weren't talking about photography, and with a bottle of uisge beatha passing around an early evening chat on the stairs turned into a somewhat "later evening" chat...

I guess what I'm saying is that we felt more welcome as friends rather than guests. Sergio maintains a perfect balance between engaging with you as the host and giving you your privacy as a guest (I mention this because some prefer sticking to themselves). At Averon you'll find exactly what you want and need - which is the essence of "mi casa es su casa". Now, that's what I call great hospitality!

Conclusion: If in Inverness, it's Averon or nothing!

@ Sergio: I'm still in the process of, well, "processing" all those pics (~1,500); will send a link featuring an "essential selection" to you and John asap.

Room Tip: The front room is more spacious and has a bigger bathroom, but note that the bed has a board which c...

This B&B was a little gem.

Sergio was a lovely pleasant man, who would happily go the extra mile to make sure his guests are catered for.

As for the breakfast, its definately the best we have ever had. Fresh strawberries, melon and grapes to start with, yogurt and cereals to follow, and a huge cooked breakfast. Then crossiants, hot cross buns, pancakes. Too much to eat!

We will be back - thanks Sergio for a truly wonderful stay.

Unusual guest house full of interesting collectibles and interesting decor. Super large room with comfy bed and everything you need. First class breakfast. Wonderful host, Sergio, who is a real delight of a man for whom nothing is too much trouble. Also very convenient for town centre, the castle and the river. Only stayed one night but wished we'd been there longer. A really enjoyable experience and pleasure meeting and talking with Sergio

This B & B ticks all the boxes - great location, beautiful and clean accommodation and brilliant service. Sergio's breakfast left us not wanting anything until dinner! If you are going to Imverness I would highly recommend Averon House.
