Snug B&B with a small number of rooms close to Inverness City Centre (5-10min walk) also offering en Suite rooms. The house was built in the 19th century and has been refurbished with a mix of contemporary and classic designs which makes it a place of character and relaxing atmosphere. The house is very clean and in a very good condition. The service includes a breakfast which consists of a menue list of cooked and freshly prepared meals and a buffett with cereals, sweets and juices. The cooked breafast offers full scottish (fried egg on potato scone, sausage, black pudding ..., haggis and toast either brown or white), eggs prepared due to your preference, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, pancakes with syrup, cream cheese bagel with salmon, etc.). The type of guest vary, there is a room for children so it is possible and likely that families with children stay there as well as the typical backpacking tourists who leave after 1-3 nights. The nationalities are mixed. read hotel review

    We had two different rooms because the bigger room was engaged for the first night of our stay. The first room was a bit smaller and had no en Suite bathroom but an external oen exclusively for our use. The room included a double bed and some storage for the clothes but no cupboard, it is actually meant for people who stay for one or two nights only. The second room was a big room with a built-in wardrobe, a desk and two armed chairs and an en Suite toilet and shower. All rooms have a flatscreen TV and facilities to prepare instant coffee or tea. The welcome gift are some local made shortbreads and new biscuits are filled up daily. The condition of the rooms is great, they have been refurbished recently. The building was built in the 19th century. Wi-Fi is offered for free.

    The B&B offers no other food than breakfast. The breakfast room is clean, the quality of food is great. There are plenty of restaurants at Inverness city centre. I would recommend: Bella Italia It is actually a chain restaurant but we also go there when we are in London and they offer high quality freshly cooked italian meals. Pasta, meat, Pizza, desserts, etc. The staff is very friendly. Moderate prices. The Kitchen I would call this restaurant a Gourmet Restaurant. The prices are a bit higher but it is worth it. Food is freshly cooked and very delicious. They have a partner restaurant "The Mustard Seed" but we didn't try this one. I wouldn't recommend the Johnny Foxes Pub, it was far away from good.

    The B&B owners are extraordinary friendly people who also like to talk to their guests and offer some good ideas where to go and what to see. The rooms are cleaned daily. As for the breakfast: you can order as much as you can eat. We appreciated the talks very much.

    The B&B is very close to Inverness city centre. Inverness offers a nice pedestrian area with shops of all sorts and a shopping mall (boots, pharmacy, M&S, Starbucks, etc.). Close to the shopping mall you can find the Victorian Market and I recommend to see it, it is worth it. Just around the corner of the Craig Villa you find a Tesco's which opens until 10 p.m. daily. Inverness retail park is just a 10 min drive away by car. Inverness itself has a good location to start from if you want to explore the Highlands. We had rented a car and stayed at Inverness during the whole vacation using the car for exploration. The Black Isle /Culloden Battlefield/ Clava Cairns/ Fortrose (Beach + Dolphin Viewpoint)/ Nairn Beach were within short reach 20-40 mins drive by car. We took approx. 2-3h to Ullapool and Fort William (Nevis Range) from Inverness and 2h to Glendronach Destillery. If you come by car you will get a parking permit which covers any parking space on Kenneth Street.
