“Excellent B&B”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

Hiya, as we arrived in this awesome B&B we were very welcomed by the hosts, Jim and Ina a great couple, also a very friendly cocker spaniel Jack topped up our arrival welcoming. Staying at this house will make you feel as if you're staying in an eden surrounded by nature, dears, pheasants and lot more. after we settled in our rooms and been offered some tea and had a nice chat with the host we went for a walk in the woods and got caught in the rain, no worries Jim came for the rescue with his own car and Ina also took care to get our clothes dry. We also had dinner with Jim and Ina which was all home made by a great cook Ina, it was a very social dinner, the day after an excellent breakfast was also served by this lovely couple. Wished I could have stayed more.

Best regards
Vince, Miriam, Luke & Matthew ( Malta )

It was really pleasing to welcome this family from Malta as a result of a previous visit by another family from that part of the world. The weather during their time here gave them a full range of experiences and recognising our duty of care to our guests it was expedient to recover them from their walk on the wild side!!
The appreciation of our hospitality by this group and others who have reviewed our offering is really welcomed and encourages us at this Olympian time in Britain to continue our efforts to give a gold medal offering here at Inverstrae Bed & Breakfast. Our environment, eden or paradise as a guest recently commented, deserves a top quality offering and we are pleased our guests think we measure up.

We arrived as strangers and left after only two nights, having made two wonderful friends. Jim, Ina and Jack (the cocker spaniel) were so welcoming and invited us in to their lovely bungalow where we enjoyed coffee and home made cake before we'd even unpacked! We had a very comfortable bed with beautiful bed linen, huge soft towels in the bathroom, loads of hot water and the breakfast was delicious. Every window had fantastic views of Glen Strae - even when it rained! Visitors must sample the evening meal, much tastier and cosier than eating out somewhere. Our hosts really did go the extra mile and made us feel completely relaxed and part of the family. We've toured Scotland lots of times but nothing gets even close to Inverstrae and it's lovely hosts.

Room Tip: All the rooms at Inverstrae are comfortable, clean and have magnificent views.

It is a pleasure to again respond to a guest review. Our guests visited us so they could attend the local highlight of the year, Dalmally Show. The weather could best be described as inclement but as can be seen from the review we were able to provide a service which enabled our guests to have a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. We have geared our facilities to ensure our guests enjoy their experience here in the glen as much as possible and it is immensely satisfying to receive a commendation like this.

We stayed at the Inverstrae B&B for 1 night in august on our travels through Scotland and we absolutely loved it. We've stayed in 11 B&B's during this trip, but this one was our absolute favourite! First of all the location of the B&B is wonderful. So quiet and peaceful with amazing views of the mountains from our room! Our room was spacious and clean. Then the hosts, Ina and Jim, what a nice couple! When we arrived they gave us a warm welcome and made us feel home immediately. They offered us a cup of tea with some sweets and wanted to know everything about us and our travels, which was very nice. And since there are no pubs close to the B&B they offered us a home cooked meal, which was delightful. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. It was obvious that they really love what they do. The scenery is really beautiful and Jim gave us a tip for a walking route, so in the evening we took a nice walk around the area (and saw some deer and buzzards!). The next morning we felt sorry we had to leave already! Ina and Jim, thank you for the lovely stay and we wish you all the luck with your B&B and hopefully we will be back sometime!

It is always a pleasure to be complemented on our service and this is no exception. The visit was part of an 80th birthday celebration which included a visit to the Clan seat. The bagpiping recital was arranged as a fitting climax to the visit to Scotland and was well received amidst the stunning vistas of our beautiful Glen Strae.

Just returned from our second visit to this wonderful haven of peace, hospitality and excellent food. This time we decided to go for a long weekend, using my husband's birthday as an excuse. We received a wonderful welcome and a homemade birthday cake which was gorgeous. Following Jim's advice we had a great weekend out and about enjoying the area and its treasures, not to mention the wildlife. We returned home relaxed and refreshed with that feeling that one usually gets following a much longer break. Many thanks to Jim and Ina. Not forgetting Jack who kept us entertained.

It was a pleasure to welcome these returning guests from Wales and to make their celebration weekend memorable for all the right reasons.
Their commendation is very much appreciated.

Stunning scenery surrounds this exceptional B&B. Warm hospitality and Ina's superb cooking - take the evening meal option to get the full benefit!

Our guests complimented us on our facilities and hospitality at departure with nice words about our food in the visitors book. Our basic philosophy at Inverstrae is that homeliness is encouraged by the food eaten round our table. To receive praise in both reviews and visitors book for the culinary pleasures enjoyed here is so so satisfying for us and gives confidence to potential visitors when planning their visit in this remote part of beautiful Argyll.

We had a delightful stay at this B&B nestled on the grounds of a large Highlands farming and hunting estate. Our hosts Ina and Jim were extremely welcoming and the food absolutely great, served in generous, tasty helpings. Our room window gave out onto the green hilly expanses of the Highlands, providing us with breathtaking views without even having to get out of bed. A true sense of hospitality and service are the trademark of the owners, who even organised a last minute, surprise bag pipe concert by a local talent, Jade.
A wonderful to stay and use as a base if one is planning to explore the area hiking or motoring.

We were delighted to provide a base for our guests to sample the delights of the Highlands in their first visit to Scotland.
The comments generally and those regarding the bagpipe recital are particularly welcomed and reflect our aim in providing unique services. In this case the bagpiping was performed by Jade Brown a 15 y/o friend and member of the famous Inveraray & District Youth Pipe Band.
We appreciate the reasoning in the review assessments which are related to the presence in the house of our little cocker spaniel Jack who receives constant adulation from all our Guests.
