We had the pleasure in staying at Pottery House (3 nights staying) while taking a long weekend to enjoy the beauties of Loch Ness. We decided to stay at this B&B because of it's close proximity to the lake (just a few meters far) and the woods, as well as because of the very nice reviews that it had on...

First of all, we stayed in many B&B's while on our 2 week trip to Scotland, and Pottery House was hands-down our favorite! Our room was quite large, the bed was very comfortable, and the view was peaceful and beautiful. We very much enjoyed the cupcakes on arrival and the short walk to the Dores Inn for dinner. We stayed...

Can't say enough how much we loved staying at Pottery House. Charming and comfortable house and room, beautiful view from the Premium Front Double Room, excellent breakfasts, and most wonderful hosts! John and Glen helped us plan our time around Loch Ness by providing a map and information on where things were located based on what we said we wanted...

Stayed here for one night and enjoyed it immensely. Dores is a lovely setting and Pottery House fits in perfectly. The room was big enough for two people to not be bumping into each other. Everything was clean, modern, and worked properly. Breakfast was lovely and the hosts worked overtime to make us comfortable. Would definitely visit again.

This is the best B&B that we ever stayed in. John and Glen are great host and they pay attention to every small details. The rooms are specious, modern and clean. Breakfast was delicious. I strongly recommend Pottery House if you are in the Inverness region.

My wife and I had the opportunity to stay at the Pottery House on our visit to Inverness and as a starting point for our drive of the North Coast 500. What a perfect start to our drive! Clean, comfortable and perfectly located. On top of all that our hosts served the most delicious breakfast we had during our entire...

What a wonderful B&B! Our room looked out on Loch Ness and John's and Glen's wonderful garden. The room was attractively decorated and the en-suite first rate. The best was, of course, the hospitality. John and Glen outdid themselves everyday with a wonderful breakfast - each day with fresh eggs from their own hens. From the fresh flowers in the...

This was by far the nicest B&B we stayed in on our Scottish trip, and certainly the best value for money. John and Glen were great hosts, the room was spacious, very modern and clean, and breakfast was superb. The proximity to the Dores Inn with its great dinner menu was a plus. We would highly recommend the Pottery House...

We and another couple stayed just one night at Potery House - next time it will be longer. The rooms are delightful and have everything you could want. Breakfast was delicious and we had dinner at the Inn, only 5 minutes down the road. A lovely stay, thank you.

Very nice rooms and setting overlooking Loch Ness, but we saw no monster. Most excellent breakfast from our host Glenn and John. We enjoyed our stay here very much with the beautiful surroundings and very very comfortable beds. Thank you very much.
