Paul & Val were great hosts. Avalon is very easy to find & is a enjoyable 20 min walk to town. Walking down by the river was lovely. Breakfast is made to order & was great. The bathroom was VERY spacious. Thanks for a great stay!

We booked this on the strength of previous reviews and they weren't wrong. Avalon is decorated to a very high standard and is beautifully maintained and presented throughout. From the second we arrived we felt at home, as the owners Val & Paul couldn't have been more friendly. Avalon is a short walk roughly 15 mins from the town centre... More

Val welcomed us warmly and recommended a walk along the Ness to a comfortable restaurant with good food. It made for a lovely evening. Our room was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. The only drawback was that we could hear another guest snoring through fairly thin walls. Paul served a very good breakfast and we enjoyed our stay. Would definitely... More

We spent two nights at the Avalon Guest House, Inverness and were very impressed. The room was luxuriously appointed, all comforts carefully thought out. Even a tray with some glasses and sherry provided. Breakfast was plentiful with a generous choice. Thank you to Val and Paul for making our stay so enjoyable.
