Travellers' Choice
Bluebell House is a traditional Scottish, family run guest house. Our aim is to provide an excellent standard of food and accommodation. Situated only four minutes walk from the town centre and with off street parking we are the ideal base from which to enjoy the town centre amenities and restaurants and also explore the beautiful highlands. Our king size four poster beds are very popular with those planning something of a romantic style getaway. Come and see for yourself!

This property was sold three weeks ago. The website belongs to the previous owners. The new owner says that they are not passing on information so he didn’t know about us. He accused us of blaming him for the mixup when we were trying to explain that we thought we had a booking and became very aggressive when we, who were wearing masks mentioned social distancing to him. He had no mask. He said it was impossible in a hallway. Apart from his bad attitude we felt that he was unprepared for all the Covid requirements.

Response from Kenny Macmillan , Owner at Bluebell House
Responded 2 Mar 2021
This person arrived at Bluebell House in a very cantankerous mood claiming that she had a reservation, for a property that was closed due to new ownership, this was impossible. I tried to explain that the property had been closed for sometime and that we had no existing reservations for 2020, she was not having it, and her behaviour became even more unacceptable. She then accused me of not being socially distanced, in MY own home, as she stood in MY hallway. I have been in hospitality for 30 years, and I can honestly say that this experience left me stunned! I am glad to say that guests that we have received in other Guest Houses, have arrived as guests, and left as friends, I look forward to meeting many more at Bluebell House.

Hey All, This is one of the most amazing B & Bs I have ever stayed at. So I am from Vancouver. I first went to Scotland with my family in 2012. We stayed at the Bluebell and were bowled over by the personal attention we received and the wonderful breakfasts. Then we stayed there in 2013 and most recently 2019. Fabulous

The location was the best with handy off street parking. Many places have that. But Neil and his wife are the ultimate professionals. He used to work reviewing B and B establishments for travel Scotland. And it shows in every little added touch This the Gold standard of our trip. Make it yours A delighted pair of Canadians

We booked here for a weekend in Inverness and what a great place to stay. We were welcomed by Neil and shown to our room, which was lovely. The B&B is literally a 5 minute walk to the town centre, Neil is good at suggesting how to go there and pointing out restaurants. The breakfast is excellent with nothing any bother, there is a range of cereals, yogurt, fresh chopped fruit, and a full scottish breakfast. The scrambled eggs with salmon is lovely. I would certainly recommend the Bluebell and would not hesitate to return.

This is what B&B was meant to be like. Great atmosphere. Really great people. Breakfast is awesome! Our (red) room was both beautiful and functional. It’s by the front door so if you’re a very light sleeper get one of the upstairs rooms. Walking to city center is 5 minutes across the river. It’s on the expensive side but if you’re gonna splurge a bit somewhere it is heartily recommended to do it here.
