I would recommend this place to anyone travelling through Inverness. It is ideally located close to UHI Inverness College and the city centre is a ten minute trip on the bus. Rooms are kept to a high standard of cleanliness for a comfortable stay. The owners are friendly and helpful. The location is peaceful and a great place to escape...

We found Jean's place while looking for accommodations close to the Culloden Battlefields. We had 2 rooms and stayed for 2 nights. Jean was fabulous and the place was immaculate. Her cheery attitude made the stay even more enjoyable. She recommended places to eat and see and we are so happy to have met her. If we are ever back...

We had a wonderful stay and Jean made us feel right at home. When the opportunity comes, we would gladly return! The place, even for a family of 5, was very clean and spacious and Jean was a lovely and caring host.

Recently stayed for two nights while visiting Inverness for a friend's wedding at the Drumossie Hotel. The Birchwood Guest House is a clean and cosy alternative to staying at the more expensive hotel up the hill. Jean was a friendly and accommodating host, would recommend staying at the Birchwood Guest House.

This is a lovely guest house. Rooms are clean and modern. The breakfast was also nice. Just a few minutes in a taxi to Bogbain Farm where we were attending a wedding, so it was the perfect location. We had all the facilities we required and Jean was a helpful and friendly host.

Jean was a wonderful host and very friendly. My family of four stayed for one night, and she helped us plan our drive the next day, recommending places to see along the way. The room was comfortable, although the wifi didn't work at that end of the house. I would definitely recommend staying at the Birchwood House, especially if planning...
