“Sweet little B&B with an amazing view and great location”
Reviewed 30 May 2011

My wife and I were very fortunate to have booked a room at the Strathness House. What a great location! Strathness is located right on the river Ness just across the river from Inverness Castle and the town center. We must say that it was the best location for any place we stayed in Scotland. All of Inverness was within walking distance and the view from the room was simply spectacular. Joan was a wonderful hostess, and the Strathness is an amazing place to stay while in Inverness. A little note that we only had one day in Inverness but would have loved at least two as it was a great little city.

The room had a spectacular view with comfortable beds and plenty of room to get about. Free wifi, coffee service and an en suite bathroom really made the place complete. I will say that the shower is very small. So for guys it can be a little tricky to get clean without getting banged up a little. It should not deter you from staying here - just know before you step in. We would definitely recommend Strathness as the place to stay in Inverness. You really cannot beat the view, accommodations, and location.

I was travelling with a small touring group, using single night accommodation stops along the way. We chose Strathness House due to the already excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, and we were not disaapointed. Very clean and tidy, very nice room with all necessary facilities, very comfortable residents lounge with views of the River Ness, very nice 'cooked to order' breakfast, very pleasant staff, and a most welcoming and attentive host - and all this for less than the price of 'room only' in a Premier Inn !! - need I say more ..........

Room Tip: Ask for a front room - have views of River Ness

I recently stayed at the Strathness with a group of friends.
A fantastic location, close to town and overlooking the river Ness.
The owners couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful, chatting about our trip to the Highlands before showing us up to our rooms.
My room at the back of the hotel was plenty big enough, and spotlessly clean.
At the back, it was silent and I slept very well.
Breakfast the following morning was good. All the normal stuff, but well presented and hot.
I would strongly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Inverness.

We stayed as a group and were well accommodated with all our needs catered for except slightly limited choice of cooked breakfasts especially if you are vegetarian. Good value though and a compact, but comfortable en-suite room with no noise.

Spent a great night here with friends. The owners were incredibly friendly and accommodating despite our many different needs / check-out times / requests. The location is perfect, right on the beautiful riverfront in Inverness, and the breakfast was great. Couldn't fault it.
