We required accommodation in Inverness in order to attend the Elton John concert on Sunday 15 July. We stayed at Trafford Bank on the Saturday and Sunday night and had a very enjoyable stay. The accommodation is to a very high standard and the breakfasts a real treat. The location of the property is a easy walk to the centre...

Based on previous comments on TripAdvisor, we made reservations for our family of 4 for 2 nights at the beginning of July. Our room had a queen bed, a day bed, and a trundle bed. The bathroom was spacious and well equipped (including thick towels and robes). Lorraine and Koshal were very nice hosts and helped us to find good...

Nothing to add to the previous comments. At Trafford Bank all is done to achieve the highest quality. The breakfast is a D-R-E-A-M : quality, quantity and choice. High-tech everywhere : wi-fi, flat screen television, DVD, i-pod docking station, ... Lorraine and Koshal are gracious hosts.

We booked Trafford on the basis of other reviews, and it deserves every bit of praise and more. Lorraine and Koshal run a superb operation. They could not have been more welcoming and professional. We learned bad news from home, and they were so kind and helpful. This included allowing us to use their laptop whenever we wanted. The breakfasts...

The Trafford in truly is a great place to stay. A very charming old victorian house that has been restored and modernized. You should have no worries in picking this hotel. My only comment would be that hosts never introduced themselves when we arrived and didn't seem very cheerful throughout our stay.

Hi We are very sorry that the party from Germany did not not feel that we welcomed them to Trafford Bank. All our guests are welcomed at the door and given their own guided tour and information while staying with us. However I am sure tripadvisors readers after reading all the other reviews will see that 99.9% of our guests...

My sister, parents and I stayed four nights at this lovely B&B. We arrived late, but still received a warm welcome and short tour. Our rooms (Tartan and Blue) were impecable and we could not have asked for anything more. Large Baths, big beds, ipod deck, tv, and sherry refilled every night! The only complaint is that no where else...

Three of us stayed for 4 nights at this wonderful bed and breakfast. In fact, Trafford Bank is more like a luxury boutique hotel. Lorrraine and Koshal have thought of everything and their attention to detail is evident in each room. We loved the interior design, the original art, the ipod deck, flat screen TV and DVD player ( with...

We've just arrived home to Australia after spending a month hopping B&Bs around the UK. Occasionally you need to treat yourself and our splurge was Trafford Bank. It's a 5 star guesthouse in Inverness, Scotland at the higher end of B&B prices and worth every pound! Lorraine has combined modern design with antiques in an eclectic collection of furnishings and...

Our second stay and it won't be the last. I think it has to be one of the best b&bs in the UK. Everything has been thought of and the breakfasts are enough to keep you going all day. Ask Lorraine for evening restaurant recommendations - she knows the best ones in town. You will love this place. If you...

If you only ever get to visit Scotland once, then this is the place to stay. Koshal and Lorraine run the best B&B in Scotland and give the warmest of welcomes. Trafford Bank deserves all the accolades going (and more). Can't wait to go back.
