My wife and I stayed for one night at The achilty guest house. We booked through Booking . com and it was clearly listed as a guest house so we did not expect a hotel as some of the reviewers did. I am totally amazed at some of the critisisms the proprieters have received. I do not find thier comments... More

We were travelling back from the north west of Scotland and wanted somewhere to stay before we got to Inverness. The owner explained he'd taken over the hotel earlier this year and is in the process of refurbishing it. We had a ground floor room which is suitable for disabled visitors although we didn't need this! Yes, the furnishings are... More

The budget room was a large comfortable room with en suite bathroom. According to the owner the reason he calls the room a budget room is because it faces the road. This was not an issue as after 7pm there was hardly any traffic. We both slept very well.

It would appear that the Achilty is a shadow of its former self. It doesn’t operate as a hotel anymore which was a disappointment to us arriving at 7pm and hoping for a relaxing night eating in. Achility is now a bed and breakfast venue only so the “hotel” title is something of a misnomer. We received a warm welcome... More

With reference to review. Firstly the television is 19 inches. If the guest required a larger television he could have asked at the time. I tend not to overcook breakfasts. The observation could have been made at the time. All our guests are asked at the time if their meal is all right , I cannot remedy the problem after... More

While driving up to this B&B, the weathered sign had fallen down and been set on the ground, making me a bit worried about what I was in for. However, the stay turned out to be lovely and just what I would expect from a B&B. The decor is more than a bit dated, and the layout of the building... More

We stayed for five nights. It is only a B&B. the owner's partner died and the couple, the Slaters, could not cope with a restuarant as well. However Mr Slater, with40 years in the hotel business, produces an excellent breakfast and the rooms are well equipped - What a change to find a shower of good pressure, good heat and... More

“Rooms on the back of the Hotel will be quieter as we were on the front and next to the main road. Not noisy at night though.”
