This place and the owner Lorraine will take your breath away. The house is so beautiful, the location is just perfect either if you want to see Inverness or take a walk near the Caledonian Canal or see Loch Ness or look around in the Highlands. The house is absolutely stunning, our room was very comfortable, the breakfast is really great with locally sourced products - delicious haggis! Lorraine is so kind and you can tell that she is doing everything for her guests, has great tips for your trip. Book. Don't hesitate, she has only five rooms. You won't be disappointed, we LOVE this place! We even got a chance to meet Troy, Lorraine's adorable doggy! :)

This is an awesome place to stay while you're in Scotland! Elegant, stylish but very warm and welcoming house. Lorraine is really nice, helpful hostess. She can give you very good tips where to go and what to do in Highland. This is a perfect base for you. Nice quiet street but you can even walk to the city centre. We most definitely will go back!

My husband & I have stayed here on quite a few occasions & wouldn’t stay anywhere else when coming to Inverness. This Guesthose isn’t far from the city centre & all of the lovely restaurants the city has to offer. Lorraine is very friendly & helpful. Lorraine’s Guesthose has everything you need, from a mini fridge to a decanter of lush sherry! The beds are extra comfortable as are the sheets & housecoats too! Great place to stay & the decor is amazing!

Unexpectedly, I had to spend almost 2 weeks in Inverness, and I had the good luck to find shelter with Lorraine at Trafford Bank. Every corner of Trafford house is lovely. And I found such care in every corner, from Lorraine's stunning breakfasts, to the way she anticipated my every need, to the little local joys everywhere the eye can see. I stayed in several rooms, since I was such a last minute booking, and that means I can tell you with surety that each room has its own character ...and a great bed, with super modern bathrooms and sweet armchairs when you just want to dose off in the afternoon. I love how she pulls the theme of each room through, and all of the little luxuries, from the decanter of sherry, to the individually wrapped biscuits, to the little metal box of chargers and whatever else you may have forgotten to pack. I particularly enjoyed the cosy Tartan and Floral rooms. Trafford Bank Guest House is also a warm embrace of local artisans, down to the Harris tweed bread baskets. It's a wonderful place to settle in as you explore Inverness. And Lorraine will be happy to point you to places to explore, great local shopping, or restaurants to suit your mood. With any luck, you'll be there for a lovely vacation. But if—like me—you have a bit of a family emergency while in Inverness, Lorraine will quickly became more than just your host. Either way, you'll find Trafford Bank a lovely respite, and cosy home base at the end of every day.

We have just stayed at the lovely guest house - Trafford Bank in Inverness. It is located in a central location which means you can be in the centre of Inverness within a 15 min walk. Within a 2 mile drive, you are on the banks of Loch Ness. Only a short 5 minute walk you are on the banks of the canal where you get stunning sunsets. There are so many lovely restaurants to eat out locally, all within walking distance. Trafford Bank itself, is set in it's own grounds so offers secure parking and a place to relax in the mature gardens. The rooms are amazingly decorated and very spacious giving you an ideal place to relax and unwind. The rooms are extremely well equipped and you are short of nothing. We even had a mini fridge in our room so we could keep some chilled snacks and drinks in there. The rooms also have plenty of technology; a large TV and DVD player, bluetooth speakers so you can play music. In our room, it was a Bose speaker so good quality. We also had an all singing all dancing radio system. We had a Nespresso coffee maker along with a kettle and facilities to make cups of instant tea and coffee. There was a gorgeous decanter and two crystal glasses which contained sherry - such a sweet touch. Lorraine is a superb host and nothing is too much trouble. Upon arrival, she welcomes you with open arms and is very informative. She gives you a tour of the guest house, explains where everything is. Lorrain offers an array of items on the menu for breakfast. The food is delicious and is excellently presented and always with a smile on her face. Anyone wanting to come for a stay in Scotland, Trafford Bank is an absolute must as your base.
