Inverglen Guest House
Ranked #1 of 232 Inverness B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 June 2012

We stayed at a four star hotel the night after being here and both of us wished that we had been able to stay another night here instead. We were greeted when we came in with tea and cakes made by the owners. They chatted with us and gave us tips about places to go in Inverness and then took us to our rooms. Once there we were given a menu for breakfast (lots of options besides just a fry up) and real milk for our tea. There were also bottles of water for those who wanted to take something along while exploring the city. Throughout our stay we felt very at home, with every detail thought of. I wouldn't be surprised if this place became a 5 star B&B sometime soon, so get a room while you can!

Room Tip: The street facing room on the first floor is large with a sizable en suite bathroom.

A big thank you to John and Susan for their gem of a B&B! Located close to the centre of Inverness, Susan and John are wonderful hosts, who made us feel at home straight away. They were very informative about places to visit that we otherwise may have missed out on. The room was very clean and comfortable, with a guest lounge downstairs which included a TV and DVD player, which we made use of a few times! They were so helpful with my dietary needs, and provided me with some gluten free bread to accompany the lovely breakfasts. Susan baked me some tasty wheat free muffins or shortbread as a daily treat. We plan to visit Inverness in the future, and will definitely stay at the Inverglen again!

John and Anne make you feel right at home in their lovely B&B. It is conveniently located. The history of the area is very interesting. The rooms and nicely appointed with comfortable beds and you will find a treat of Anne's amazing shortbread cookies!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review for Inverglen, and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay here and the shortbread biscuits! We hope you are able to come back and visit us again soon, and maybe you will be able to enjoy some of the glorious sunshine that we've had over the past couple of weeks, rather than the rain that you had during your stay.

Hope to see you soon!

Thank you John and Susan for making our stay so comfortable last night. The three of us had canoed from Fort William over a testing four days and your warm and friendly welcome together with the comfort of your immaculate house was the perfect end to our trip. In the past I've chosen hotels over B&Bs but my experience at Inverglen was so good that I think my habits may change now! Best of luck with your business and hope to see you again. Ewan

We had the pleasure of staying with Susan and John for a night as we travelled up from the Lake District to Caithness. A very warm welcome greeted us after our long drive and was rapidly followed by freshly brewed coffee and home made cake. We chatted away to Susan and John who are both exceptionally amiable people then were shown up to our first floor room - number one. It was large, spotlessly clean, with modern furnishings and a very comfortable bed.

We spent the evening in the town centre which is only a 5-10 minute walk from Inverglen- very handy for shopping!

Breakfast was delicious and plentiful with so much to choose from! There is a daily special as well as the more standard options of full Scottish breakfast. I had waffles with warm summer berry compote. Gorgeous!

We thought this Guest House was wonderful - a real home from home with extra touches and hosts that our clearly in the right profession - and who go out of their way to help and assist. We only wish we could have stayed longer, and if we ever return to Inverness, we know where we will be staying.

We're glad you enjoyed your stay here, and that the waffles met with your approval! We hope the rest of your trip goes well and that you enjoy the time you have with your family and friends.

Have a safe journey home, and if you can drag yourself away from the wall to wall sunshine in Perth, please do come back and visit us again - the creamy orange french toast is also very well received!

Best wishes, Susan & John

A group of us stayed here at the start of a bike trip along the Great Glen Way and were so impressed that we came back again and stayed another two nights after a terrible experiance in another B&B further down the track.

John & Susan are great hosts, very wecolming and just like everyone else I have to say the home made cakes were simply delicious, as were the breakfasts, which were all made with fine ingredients (ie. locally sourced sausges) and some great touches like the freshly prepared individual fruit salads and fantastic coffee.

The house is beautiful, the bedrooms spacious, well decorated, exceptionally clean and again great touches like really fluffy towels, good range of toileteries and complementary bottled water and fresh milk. A huge guest lounge complete with giant TV and massive range of DVD's as well.

John and Susan were also really flexible in accomodating us after we returned unexpectedly and looked after us all very well.

The B&B is also very centrally located and easy to find.

I would certainly go back to this B&B and recommend anyone else to.
