Within ten minute walk of railway station, good size en-suite room. Excellent breakfast served by friendly staff. Over looking the river, enjoyed visiting the Cathedral and river walks. Hope to visit again.

I was greeted warmly on arrival and enjoyed many chats with the lovely woman who works at this guest house. My single room was a good size, comfortable and quiet. The guest house is on the 'other side' of the river but very close to the bridge so it was a very short walk into town, which I did every...

Breakfast was excellent on both mornings! Will...

We arrived on Friday after being stuck in traffic for four hours. We were greeted by the owner I believe and she took us up to our room which was to our surprise a luxury family room.

Booked by my colleague this establishment was rated 3 star. On first impressions it seemed ok. But when the heating went off at around 8 am on the Saturday and last breakfast was 9am / checkout 10 am I wasn't very impressed. Stingy '3 items off menu only' cooked breakfast, no fresh fruit and no porridge. Shop around and compare...

Very friendly staff, accommodated all our needs. We were given the cottage at the back so had the whole place to ourselves at no extra cost. Breakfast was great, everything you wanted would definitely come back again and we will.

This was not our first time in this Guest house. Our first was way back in the '80's & nothing has changed unfortunately. This is a wonderful old house in a great location but it now really needs some help. Our room was a good size with a lovely front view over the River Ness. The washroom was very tiny...
