I am not normally a B&B fan due to the image they conjure up of tired places by the seaside run by strict middle aged women! This place chosen purely on the back of positive comments on Trip Advisor was first class and delivered everything you wanted. A good base in which to explore Inverness/Loch Ness (or further afield) and... More

Dear BabyGray Thank you so much for taking the time to write such an excellent review and we're really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. I see you stayed back in October and as planned we have continued our refurbishments. The bathrooms were completed in November and we have just recently worked on the Guest Lounge and Dining Room...

Good location to walk into city centre, but also not far for walking along the Caledonian Canal. Loch Ness a short journey away - loved the cruise along it - well worth it. The rooms are spotless and lots of little extras that make it homely. Nothing is too much trouble for Jo and Brad - the breakfast was gorgeous!... More

We stayed at Avalon on a business trip recently. The rooms were lovely with everything we needed including internet links and the breakfast set us up for the day! The booking process and welcome were all great and I certainly hope to stay again on future trips. This is a great place for business or pleasure and is ideally suited... More

There was plently of information about things to do in and around Inverness available in the form of leaflets and a booklet provided in our room, the owners were also helpful with any queries we had. The room was clean, bright and very modern which provided... More

A short but comfortable stay. Friendly welcome from Jo. Room was modern, spacious, very clean and well equipped. Excellent hearty Scottish breakfast with lots of choice including fresh fruit. Overall great value and no reason to stay anywhere else in Inverness.

I'm always very wary about booking accommodation online as comfort, quiteness and cleanliness are so important to us, and therefore always pay particular attention to all guest reviews - it can only take 1 negative comment to put us off. Don't let anything put you offer booking this guest house! From the second we arrived we were made to feel... More

My girlfriend and I had a weekend break in Inverness and by chance stayed at Avalon. A lucky choice as every aspect was excellent and I will definately stay there again. A short walk from the city centre and very handy for the Eden Court Theatre it was ideal.
