Strathness house is a great place to stay in downtown Inverness. You can look out your window and see the River Ness and look up to see the Inverness Castle. The St. Andrew's Cathedral is just across the street. The hotel is very clean, warm, and the breakfast is quite good. The two owners are very friendly and accommodating. The...

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you took time to review your stay. We would like to take this opportunity to explain the issue of the lack of a lift (elevator), as it is a subject that comes up often and tends to hold great importance to many people. Strathness House was built...

The Strathness Guest House is good for what it is: a simple, basic lodging option. It is clean and generally comfortable with small rooms that fail to impress or inspire. It does serve the need of providing a good night’s rest, but this is all it does. In other words, the Strathness is immediately forgettable upon departure. If you are...

texavilla, Owner at Strathness House, responded to this review

These reviewers clearly were looking for “elegant and romantic accommodations “, which clearly they did not find with us. However if they had read up on what facilities we had to offer (or not), then they would have booked somewhere else more to their liking and needs! This only highlights “one man’s meat is another man’s poison”. We cannot make...

This was our first trip to Scotland and didn't know what to expect in accommodations. We were thrilled with this small boutique hotel We had a wonderful room with view of the river. But the best part were the owners, Javed and Joan. They were so helpful and friendly, it was like being their personal guests. We highly recommend this...

The accommodation was centrally situated overlooking the River Ness. The room was pleasant and clean and the stay was very comfortable. The owner was particularly helpful and chatty. The breakfasts were good and plentiful with a good variety on offer. Difficult to park the car because of restricted street parking but possible to utilise the church car park a short...

We paid about the same price for a room in this lovely place as you would at the chain hotel just down the road. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with good linens, and the bathrooms are modern and well equipped. Situated next to the cathedral, with lovely views across the river to the castle, it is within easy walking...

We stayed here for a couple of nights, and had a thoroughly pleasant time. The guest house has only twelve or so rooms, and ours had a great view down the River Ness and over to the Castle. The owners and staff couldn't have been friendlier, and were most helpful with advice about where to visit (in the rain!). Excellent,...

I and a friend stayed here when we visited Inverness in November last year for 3 nights. The two owners (I forget your names; it has been a long time! My humblest apologies!) were not only lovely people but also very knowledgeable and helped us plan a number of days activities. The room was lovely, clean and well presented; the...

A lovely spot overlooking the river and just a short walk from pretty much everything in Inverness. Lovely clean, bright room, excellent breakfast and attentive hosts. The brilliant WiFi reception capped off a truly enjoyable experience

We found it by chance, and impressed by the beautiful location, we entered. We needed a room for one night, it was a great experience! Owners are very kind and nice as well as available. The room had a beautiful view on the river and the Inverness's Castle. Wi-fi is free and included. The cleanliness is impeccable. The breakfast was...
