Jean is very welcoming and helpful.
It is a very nice place to stay in Inverness.
Just one thing to bear in mind that you may need a car due to its location.
Jean was a great host, friendly and helpful. She helped us plan our drive out of Inverness and pointed out the best sites to stop at along the way. The family room for 5 was comfortable and roomy. The wifi did not reach the room itself, but was available in the dining room. We stayed for one night.
Jean has been really kind and, apart from some troubles in finding the house, everything went smooth and perfect. She was awesome in giving us suggestions about where to eat in town and where to go. Breakfast was perfect to start the day in the best way. I really recommend her.
We drove to the house and it is near the downtown of Inverness. The house is a cozy and clean place for visiters who want to travel the Highland. The owner, Jean, is a nice lady who told us useful info for traveling to Inverness and Skye.
Hi ChiChou, Thank you for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, and were comfortable in that room. As regards the renewal of towels etc, I'dont usually enter guests room after they have checked in if they are only staying one or two nights unless they specifically ask me to , and of course fresh towels etc are always available on request. Guests who stay longer have everything in their room replenished half way through their stay.
Accueil chaleureux, beaucoup d'attention de la part de Jean sur nos souhaits et besoins, chambre impeccable, bien installée pour répondre à nos besoins (famille avec 3 enfants). Salon commun agréable, cosy avec une cheminée appréciée, petit déjeuner complet. Maison située un peu en dehors d'Inverness dans un environnement agréable.
We only had one night in Inverness, but Jean was the quintessential host. She was pleasant, informative and happy to have a chat/provide advice about nearby attractions. The B&B is a little way out of the city, but that was no problem for us as we had a car.
The beds were super comfortable, the shower was hot and had good water pressure, and I personally loved the fresh fruit Jean provided in the morning with the continental breakfast.
The only thing I would say for serious non-smokers is that while the accommodation is listed as non-smoking, there are parts of the non-guest areas where smoking is clearly allowed. It's not a big deal, but if you have asthma or other allergies, or you're extremely sensitive to this kind of thing it might be a problem.
HI Liz Thank you for your review. and we are glad you enjoyed your stay, the room and breakfast. as regards smoking areas , whilst guest areas of the house and all the bedrooms are non smoking as advertised , there are areas outside the house for guest who do smoke and our own private area to smoke ,.We do however try our best to accommodate all guests who stay with us with varying requirements.

About the Host, Jean
I'm originally come from Loch Lomond and moved to Inverness 8 years ago, to be near our family. I have a retail background and have been running the B&B since September 2011. I heard about Airbnb from one of our guests. I run the B&B with some help from my partner.I try to provide a friendly welcoming atmosphere and you will find me very easy going.I will always try to meet guests needs and any special requests as regards breakfast etc. We can also provide a pick up and drop off service for an additional charge to and from the Airport and Bus Station (for less than a taxi costs).
Highland Hospitality at its best from your host. I look forward to welcoming guests and hope to see you soon.
