Reviewed 7 July 2014

Situated right on the River Ness with just a short walk to the center of Inverness. Beautiful views of the river and the city from many of the rooms. The rooms are nicely appointed with comfortable beds. Breakfasts are very good with something for everyone. The lounge is a very nice place to relax if you arrive early!

Inverness is a very pretty town and Strathness house is in an ideal location. We had a river facing room and enjoyed our stay for 1 night. Wished we could have stayed longer. Javed and Joan were very gracious and took good care of us.

We were a bit surprised at how easy Strathness House was to find. Once there we were warmly welcomed by our host Javed. Our room overlooked the river and was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, great variety. Most sites withing walking distance.

Really enjoyed the service. Stayed 3 nights and had wonderful breakfasts + packaged cookies in the room every day. Found the room somewhat smaller than we expected and no elevator in the building. All in all a good experience - we may stay there if we end up in Inverness again.

What can one say about this guest house that hasn't already been said time and time again.
It has been almost if not already 4 years since my last visit to Inverness and this quaint guest house on the River Ness. When I knew I was able to get away for a bit I knew my first choice was Inverness as location and The Strathness Guest House as choice of accommodation.

Four years ago (2010) is when I wrote my last review for this guest house praising every aspect of the guest house, from the accommodation and tasteful decor and quaint quiet charm, to the staff and owners hospitality, to the quality and quantity of the breakfast to the overall location where the guest house is located and the spectacular views and transport and walking distances from it to the main shopping thoroughfare.

That was then and can with all honesty, integrity and heartfelt sincerity guarantee you that today in 2014 (four years later) not one aspect has changed.

It is still the same spectacular little guest house that it was in 2010, the hosts are as charming as ever and are most welcoming helpful and pleasant to chat with and offer advice as to where to dine, visit around the area and more. It is not surprising that they have been awarded the much coveted "Trip Advisor Award", it is highly deserved, I have never been to another hotel or guest house where you feel valued as a customer and not treated as another punter at the reception desk like you would in another un named well known hotel in Inverness.

In summary I don't just recommend this guest house I urge you to book here as this guest house is part of the great holiday experience that is Inverness, this is Inverness hospitality at its very best.

Thank you so much once again Joan and Javed and hope to see you again in the near future.

All the best :)

The entire staff was top notch! Friendly, helpful, and kind, they made me feel at home. My room was small but exceptionally clean and very comfortable. The location is perfect, an easy walk to the bus/train/city center and located on the river.

We chose this guest house based on top recommendations on Trip Advisor. We were fortunate to have a lovely room overlooking the River Ness. The view of the river, castle and people walking along the river was wonderful and peaceful. The room was quiet and beautifully decorated with careful attention to details and in keeping with the building's historic architecture. The bed and lighting were good. The bath was small but fully functional. The service was exceptional. Javed and Joan were super-helpful in giving directions, arranging activities, making reservations, getting same-day laundry done, etc. They gave us instructions where to park the car in a lot a block away. The breakfasts were excellent, served in a beautiful room. The location was perfect, an easy walk to restaurants and tourist sites. We initially planned for a one-night stay, but upon arrival were so taken with the town and hotel, we stayed two nights and loved every minute of it.

Room Tip: It is worth the extra money to get a larger room with a river view.
