A very good B&B in a 19th century house, ideally located very close to the town centre (sorry, can’t get used to calling Inverness a city).

I was able to walk to & from the pub/restaurant without difficulty. We only had 3 drinks, so that helped. In fact it was fun on the way back to cross the footbridge over the River Ness and then along the embankment watching the city (oops, did it!) lights.

Location really is an asset. For me it was a little special. Northern Meeting Park is across the street. I played a memorable game of rugby there a few years back. Well, in the 70s to be honest. One of my university friends lived along the street. Where are you now, Stephen Olszyszka? The office where my dad worked (when we lived here) is 200m away.

The whole B&B is clean and well decorated. You get a friendly welcome from the owner. It has off street parking, which is always useful. In a minute I’ll be going out to check for damage from falling apples...

My room has free wifi and a TV. Very quiet & comfortable all round, and I had a great night’s sleep.

Breakfast was your typical Scottish B&B experience. Make sure you’re good & hungry. And plan a light, late lunch. (Aaah, the power of alliteration).

I was £65 (on my own in a double room) for a Saturday night in mid October. Recommended.

Unique Quality: Location & value for money

Directions: Just north of the A82 Drumnadrochit road, close to the town centre.

4star Victorian Bed & Breakfast in the city centre

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 23, 2009

A few of our wedding guests stayed in the Moyness House during the summer of 2009, and thoroughly enjoyed their stayed. Hosts Richard and Jenny Jones have created an inviting, warm, hospitable and spotlessly clean B&B only a short walk away from the city centre.

It has 6 comfortable and stylish guest rooms (4 double and 2 twin) all with en suite bath or shower rooms.

The house has its own guest car park, which is vital when traveling to Inverness with a car (it can be tricky finding parking otherwise in Inverness.)

Although this is a Victorian property (dating from 1880), it has been renovated to a very modern standard and I've heard time and time again about how great the linen and the bathrooms were! Another outstanding feature of the Moyness House is the breakfast, which our guests told us was delicious and plentiful.

Best B&B in Scotland

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

We stayed in 6 different B&Bs/guest houses in Scotland and enjoyed them all, but Moyness House offered the best quality accommodations for the best value. It's a very elegant Victorian town house and is an excellent location, being just a few minutes walk from shops, restaurants, and the river. It's in a quiet street and has plenty of private parking.

We took advantage of the 10% discount for a 3 night stay. Our room was a comfortable size and was beautifully decorated, and showed great attention to detail. All sorts of extras touches were provided, as they were in the bathroom as well. Our bathroom had a shower (no tub) and was stocked with lots of thick fluffy towels and waffle robes - all gleaming white - and lots of toiletries.

There's a lovely sitting room with lots of books, touring information, local information (including restaurant menus, entertainment guides etc). It was a good place to sit in the evening with a glass of wine. The hosts, Jenny and Richard, were extremely friendly helpful and gave us lots of useful touring tips, booked restaurant tables etc.

Breakfast in the very pretty dining room is delicious - they serve a divine fruit compote, and a good choice of yummy cooked dishes as well. They serve tea the proper way! (with a separate jug of hot water to keep the brew from getting too strong).

There's a nice beautifully maintained and secluded garden to the rear of the house where we had a picnic one evening.

Unique Quality: Beautiful Victorian house in pristine condition.

Exceptionally kind and hospitable owners.

Beautiful 5* bed and breakfast. The owners were very nice, the facilities were excellent, there was a great deal of information available in the lounge and the food was good.

Unique Quality: Extremely clean and well kept. There is a discount if you stay more than three days. The location was excellent - very near main road but quiet; just a short walk to the River Ness and downtown area. There is a coin-operated laundromat within a few blocks. Off-street parking.

Directions: just off main highway that travels from Inverness along the west side of Loch Ness
