The local tourist information chap booked our room for 2 nights at Cavell House. I heard him confirm that we would get a room with a river view on the phone. When we arrived we were given a minuscule back room with all the space taken up by a silly fake "4 poster"(actually just pipes joined together with a lace canopy). There was basically no room for our suitcases and, although green, the view was of the backs of other houses not the River Ness. When we caught a glimpse of one of the front rooms with a view (which was the same price) we were very disappointed. It was large and with a proper 4-poster!
The room was cold, apparently the Scots don't notice! Luckily in the morning the sun poured in and made it pleasant. The shower was a nightmare. Gallons of water poured down the drain or sprayed all over the bathroom while trying to work out how to make it hot and then, how to turn it off! My husband was ready to book out immediately, but we stuck it out.
The hostess was very friendly and helpful, giving excellent touring, eating and accommodation suggestions. Breakfast was great and served on lovely old crockery.
The Wifi worked well and the off street parking was convenient, though limited.
The location of the house is excellent...a lovely stroll along the river to the restaurants and shops of Inverness. By just taking the "4 poster" bits off the bed would have made it possible to actually walk around the room and would have totally changed our stay.
