House is in a great location with parking easy to find nearby. Our hosts were lovely - friendly and helpful. The room had castle views and was clean and comfortable. Easy access to shops, restaurants and beautiful riverside walk.

Strathness House is in a great location with great views and loads of nearby things to see and places to eat. Inverness is really small and the hotel is near enough to the main part of town to see everything, we had a lovely view of the river and castle from our room. The couple that run it were really...

On the start of a week long tour of the highlands we started in her capital Inverness. We chose the Strathness House Hotel and it didn't disappoint. It is in the most ideal of locations, situated on the banks of the river and within 3 minutes walk of the city centre. The room we received was on the first floor...

We booked 2 rooms (we went with 2 friends who sleeped in a twin bed room) and our stay was perfect. The location of the hotel could not be better and the rooms were clean and tidy, even though the room decor is not very appealing to our taste, we were really comfortable here. The best thing for us, was...

We found this guest house at the very last minute and they couldn't have been more helpful. We had a lovely room which was immaculately clean with a great river view. Right in the centre of the city but situated on the quieter side of the river. A beautiful breakfast with a good selection and freshly cooked to order. Would...

Strathness was reserved for me as part of an Inverness-based mountain bike vacation. Our group stayed there the first and last night of the trip. The breakfast was plentiful with hot food made to order. Our room was comfortable enough although a bit small for 2 single beds. There were 3 flights of stairs to climb to my room. The...

Staff were great, very very friendly, helpful and happy to chat. Location was excellent. Slightly unlucky that my room faced the away from the river, but that's luck of the draw and I can't really blame anyone for that. The room itself was comfortable and reasonably priced. Breakfast was excellent too :) Would certainly stay here again.

Comfortable spotless, well apponted rooms, some with great views of the River Ness. Right across the nearby bridge into downtown. Breakfast is made to order and tasty! The guesthouse has a comfortable lounge, a great place to read a book!

The Strathness Guest House has a great location on the River Ness and just a short walk from the city centre. The rooms are comfortable and extremely clean, and the morning breakfast is quite good. Very friendly hosts, too.
