No doubt the rooms could use a facelift but they were clean and the bed was comfortable. If you're using the room to shower and sleep, it's more than adequate. If you need to do business, it's small and cramped. Ken, the owner, will do whatever he can to make your stay easier. It's a great value for the money...plus...

Located on a busy main road with easy access to the centre of Inverness. The b&b is ample for one night but I wouldn't have spent longer there. The rooms are very small and not worth the £85 we were charged. The biggest plus point for me was the breakfast as I'm not a lover of the English breakfast. There...

Room was dirty and covered in a layer of dust. Need a science degree and a pole to close the window. Shower had green and black mound in it. He left sweets for us and they had melted to the tray.... How long had they been sitting there. No milk in room for coffee. Do I need to go on....

Stayed at Melrose Villa for 2 nights on our travels around Scotland. The owner accommodated us on the first morning with an early breakfast as we had to head out earlier than the normal breakfast time. He was very helpful with recommendations of bars, restaurants and how to get around. Only complaint is there is little parking. None on site,...

Ken was absolutely lovely even though we were running very late to arrival. Rooms were very clean, breakfast variety was excellent and ken is delightfully friendly. Very easy to find and close to the city centre I would highly recommend to anybody :)

We had a fantastic time at Melrose Villa. There were 6 in our group and we split into 3 of the rooms here. The manager Kenny is a total comedian with the driest sense of humor, so if you don't understand deadpan I can see how one might misconstrue his personality, but rest assured he is a fabulous guy and...

Beware, when you are greeted by Kenny, the gruff and ever so uninviting hotelier who dons a mustard stained white vest to greet new guests, his first port of call is to demand your address and card details, despite paying for the full stay in advance online. He requires the security code on the back of your card and everything....

Probably the worst value for money you'll ever experience. Tiny room and absolutely filthy. See pics. What a disappointment. The owner is a nice guy but he needs to get the cleaning up to standard. I've stayed in loads of establishments all over the UK and abroad and this was the worst I've ever encountered. The only saving grace if...

“Very noisy rooms to the front but to be honest just go elsewhere - the B&B is horrendous!”
  • Shower cubicle.  Old decor that was filthy and smelly!
  • My towel that was taken OFF the shower cubicle to be used for the second day.
