Daviot Lodge
Ranked #17 of 232 Inverness B&B and Inns

Reviewed 12 September 2011

We stayed at the Daviot Lodge for two nights during our trip in the UK. This was one of our favorite hotels during the entire trip. The breakfast was delicious... if the tea was a bit strong. You were provided a menu to choose from for breakfast and you could choose your time to dine. We didn't get a lot of suggestions for what to do in the local area, but had our trip pretty much planned out. The bed was large, comfortable, and the sheets very soft. The room was immaculately clean. There was complimentary bottled water, biscuits, chocolate, and sherry! The bathroom was large for a european bathroom and had heated towel racks. Just what we were looking for, we are already planning a return trip!!

A lot of attention went into this place. In the decoration of the rooms, in the amenities. No doubt that the owners really put their harts in it. Location on the countryside outside Inverness is good and quiet. The only negative remark could be that some noise (doors, etc.) from other rooms can be heard.

My friend and I had the pleasure of staying in Margaret and Alex's wonderful Bed and Breakfast for three nights at the beginning of August. This was the best bed and breakfast experience I have had. The hosts are warm, friendly and knowledgeable about the area, the room was beautifully decorated, spacious and spotlessly clean, the breakfasts were delicious - the porridge can't be beat! The breakfast room has a wall of windows that look out over the countryside and you can watch the birds at the feeders just outside the doors on the lawn. After each busy day, we enjoyed relaxing in the beautiful guest sitting room, enjoying the sherry and chocolates Margaret left for us each evening in our room or just having a cup of tea . It is a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere where you feel welcomed. I highly recommend this b and b to anyone wanting to visit the many historical sites in the highlands that surround Inverness. Margaret told us they have had many Diana Gabaldon fans visit over the years! All sites are close at hand and an easy drive from the Daviot. An exceptional bed and breakfast - not to be missed if you are in the area.

Room was terrific, lounge for guests was very comfortable and the breakfasts very good. The little touches were so nice and Margaret, just a great hostess.

We stayed here for three nights as a base for other explorations in the area. Very convenient to Cawdor Castle, Culloden, Loch Ness, the Black Isle, etc. I liked staying a bit out of Inverness; it was very quiet and peaceful. As for the actual home: after having a little bit of trouble finding the place (hint: make sure you have good directions!) everything else was wonderful. The rooms were cosy, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Great bed and lovely little details in the room (nice soap, shampoo, chocolate, shortbread, etc.) The breakfasts are truly phenomenal--they will definitely keep you going for most of the day. Lovely fresh berries and wonderful cooked breakfast with local ingredients. One of my favorite parts of our trip was driving aimlessly through the little tiny roads surrounding the lodge--lovely views! Great stay, great value.

more like a fabulous boutique hotel than a B&B. tastefully decorated, really big comfy bed. fridge on landing with fresh milk. sherry and chocs in room. best breakfast ever with fresh berries galore, cereals, and a tick what you want full scottish freshly cooked - i even loved the black pudding which i usually hate. served by owners delightful daughter. bird feeder outside dining room window full of siskins and other lovely birds. even had binocs on window sill. at night lounge has big bowl of choccies - great place to read a book from their library. easy drive to inverness but in wonderful tranquil location on B road that is more like a tiny lane. my window overlooked the garden with resident border collie then gorse, field with cattle and on to the hills. magnificent. owner is slightly reserved in a countryside way (but underneath is a big softie!) but nothing is too much trouble. she even chased after me when i left to ask if i had slept well - i had told her in advance i was a terrible sleeper and so she put me in the quietest room - next to the linen cupboard (but any room would have been tranquil). i wished i was staying longer - it was the highlight of my stay in scotland and i shall return to the area a) because its nice but b) so i can stay at the daviot! do not stay anywhere else!!!

We were welcomed with a bottle of Scottish whisky in the room, clean and fresh sheets. The evening we returned we found candles lighted everywhere.
This is Daviot Lodge: something plus than a B&B. Rooms were huge, bathroom better than my home: big, clean, colorful. Everything you need is there and owner is lovable. There is a big park in the court. Breakfast is celestial, everything you could desire (fresh wild berries included).
The only problem is that it is VERY far from city centre (where park is on pay) and there's nothing nearby. You have to take the car for everything. It is not so convenient in this sense.
