I have stayed at the Avalon twice (so far), and was very satisfied on both occasions. The rooms are tastefully decorated with comfortable beds and flatscreen TV's that don't dominate the room. Tea & coffee making facilities. Good sized bathrooms with nice shower gel, shampoo and hand lotion. Although this was a business trip, I would have no hesitation in...

This stay occurred over the week end that Jo and Bradley received widespread press coverage over their 3rd place in Europe from Trip Advisor. It was obvious to see the excitement in both of them, especially Jo having to hear herself on the radio during an interview given a few days before. The gust house itself is an unassuming building...

We loved our short break to Inverness and introduction to the Highlands of Scotland-everything was spot on,and staying at the Avalon Guest House was definitely the right choice. Jo and Bradley make genial and friendly owners, and their attention to detail and comfort of the bedrooms was first class. On our short walk into the city we were lucky enough...

We have travelled all over the world and this was our first visit to Scotland. There is something comforting to stay in a B&B where you are treated like one of the family.

We HIGHLY recommend Avalon House in Inverness. Jo and Brad (the owners) are wonderful. We were welcomed and felt at home right away. The room was immaculate and the en-suite bathroom 5 star worthy! Jo provided us with maps and advice. The breakfast was delicious. They even helped us organize a rental car and begin our journey onwards. We can't...
