“Worth Staying Away From the City Center!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Moyness House is in a first class category all by itself with wonderful hosts. Jenny and Richard could not be more accommodating, and they made sure we had everything we needed. I loved the fact that it was not directly located in the city center but instead on a quiet street that was just a short walk away. Our room was beautifully decorated with a very comfortable king-sized bed. Breakfast in the pretty dining room was delicious with a variety of wonderful offerings. We would definitely stay here again - just loved it!

Stayed for four nights at a hotel in the middle of the town and then three nights at Moyness house. The bed at Moyness was more comfortable, breakfast was superior and general atmosphere was very calm, yet welcoming. We stayed at a room on the ground floor at the back of the house, and although the shower room was compact, was beautifully fitted out and had lovely local shower gel etc. A very good B+B - would recommend it - it is well situated for the centre of town, and very quiet. Fresh flowers and magazines in the room - a lovely stay

We arrived late in the afternoon and received a warm welcome from our host Richard. He gave us some great dinner recommendations and was kind enough to make the reservations for us. Our room was spacious and well appointed. We had a large bathroom with everything we could have needed. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of selection. Coffee was excellent! Public spaces were welcoming and comfortable. B&B was located within easy walking distance to "downtown" Inverness.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Ideal location for walking into Inverness but also for getting easily out of the city if you're planning to explore further north. Lovely clean room, tasty breakfast and very friendly and informative hosts Richard and Jenny.

We were welcomed by Jenny and given lots of information re trips, restaurants and places to see. Our room was beautifully clean with fresh flowers in a vase. The bathroom had locally sourced toiletries which were just lovely. Gorgeous white fluffy towels, changed daily as well.
At breakfast we we're greeted by Richard and were offered a large selection of options - the fresh fruit salad was our particular favourite. From porridge and cereal to salmon, the choice was ours. Richard is a lovely host and was so helpful with routes to take. He has compiled loop routes to take with suggested places to visit, places to eat and petrol station locations. We did three of these trips and they were fantastic. If in Inverness, we would certainly recommend a visit to Moyness House.

I stayed here with a friend in early May this year, and had a fantastic time. Richard and Jenny were excellent hosts and made us both feel very welcome and gave us helpful advice and suggestions on places to visit and things to see around Inverness, as well as making dinner reservations for us for both nights.

The rooms were lovely and very clean, as was the dining area where we were served a delicious traditional Scottish breakfast. The location for Moyness House was perfect, we were only a few minutes walk from the town centre and we enjoyed walking around the river which also was only a few minutes away.

Moyness was a perfect welcome for our trip around the Highlands and I look forward to returning at some point!

After a road trip of several days, and a few B&B beds of excessive firmness, I was desperate for a good night's sleep. Richard came through with a last minute booking and allowed us to check the room before agreeing to stay, for which I am very grateful.

Moyness House is a lovely home - and our room (on the ground floor to the rear) was small but beautifully decorated and fitted out, with a tidy little ensuite shower room. The bed, while still firm, was made quite comfortable by the addition of a folded duvet, and I got a really good night's sleep. It was also fitted with a separate top sheet and second light throw, which we always appreciate as we find sleeping under a duvet or quilt too warm.

The house is located in a really handy spot only a few minutes walk to the river, Inverness Castle and all the surrounding attractions of Inverness.

Breakfast was served in a delightful morning room, and was of the highest quality, with a good range of choices.

Moyness House was a wonderful find, and rescued our holiday (and my hips).
