Strathness House
Ranked #20 of 232 Inverness B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Having never been to Inverness before, we did not know what to expect. Strathness House is in the best location imaginable...right on the river. With the windows up you can hear the rippled stream outside. The location is literally no more than two blocks from anything you want to see or do. But just being on the river was enough. The walkway and the grassy bank were charming in every way.

The hosts were great, and helpful as needed them. Breakfast was made to order, and was the best we have had in three weeks in UK.

The room was a bit small, but it had character and an interesting shape to it. The shower was the smallest we have ever seen, but it was OK.

We stayed for two days and it was lovely. Room was big (by UK standards) for a B & B. View from the window overlooking the River Ness, comfortable bed and only 5-6 minute walk to the centre of the city. Parking is limited on the street, but 200 yards away there is a pay and stay. We put 4.50GBP in the meter on Friday night at 6pm and we were covered until 8am Sunday morning. The owners took really good care of us. We had an early start on our first morning to the Orkney islands and had to be at the bus station by 7:15 and we would miss breakfast which commences at 8am. When we came down the stairs at 6:45am, there was a bag containing sandwiches, bananas and a fruit juice each. Breakfast was well catered, good hearty Scottish breakfast is the way to start the day. Great place to stay, don't miss it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the River Ness, great views

Stayed here last week for a golfing trip to play Nairn, Royal Dornoch and Castle Stewart and had just about the best golf 'tour' ever. The location was ideal for all courses (a little drive to RD, but that was OK) and the accommodation ideal - very clean modern rooms, lovely fresh cooked breakfast and the owners really made an effort to make us feel so welcome.

I would def recommend if you need to stay close to Inverness itself or playing golf and if I needed to go back to that area would not hesitate to book this hotel again.

Room Tip: Room 2 had a good view over the water!

We booked in advance and weren't disappointed. The owners made us feel really welcome and were very helpful throughout our 3 night stay. They even put perishable goods in their fridge for us to preserve it properly! Although the cathedral is right next door, we weren't disturbed by any bells even on the Sunday morning.

The location is great, overlooking the river, and a short walk into the town (shoud that be city?) and well place for a quick circuit along one side of the river and back up the other.

This is a lovely old Victorian building which has been carefully restored. There are limitations as to what can be done with such properties, so we didn't mind that the bathroom was rather limited for space. Plenty of space in the bedroom, lots of storage space, comfy beds, an excellent guest lounge overlooking the river, good breakfastsand staff who really did try to please. Would happily stay there again.

Probably one of the best views from a Inverness hotel room, amazing river view.

Breakfast was excellent and cooked just as asked (like my bacon crispy). Rooms very clean, and service first rate.

The hotel is in a quiet location, but only a short walk into the town centre. Good location to be based if you want to drive to Loch Ness (about 20/25 minutes away).

My stay was 3 days late April/early May 2014.

Highly recommended. Do not think you will be able to find better in Inverness.

Room Tip: As for river view

The location is excelent, the rooms are very spacious and clean. Warm welcome from the owner, he is very eager to help and can give many tips on Scotland. The breakfast was also excelent. The only thing we didn't like very much was the shower, took us some time to figure out how to get a good flow, but did not diminish our stay.
