      Historical Traveler Reviews Atholdene House Inverness

      Arreglado y ordenado pero un poco deslucido

      from

      Mi habitación individual de 30 libras la noche en el Atholdene House era pequeña y sencilla, y aunque suficiente para lo que yo necesitaba, me pareció un poco deslucida.El baño tenía ducha pero no bañera. El suelo estaba agrietado y las paredes eran finas, podía oir caer el agua del lavabo de mi vecino; ¡gracias a Dios que no roncaba! La persiana de la ventana dejaba pasar la luz, y las luces de la ciudad eran lo suficientemente intensas como para tener que dormir con un antifaz. El desayuno completo escocés era extraordinariamente bueno, abundante y te dejaba lleno, era 20 veces mejor que el del hotel de lujo del que venía. No me dijeron que hubiese o al menos yo no vi una sala común, así que supuse que no había ninguna, pero acabo de mirar otra vez su sitio web y parece que sí que hay una; que pena que no lo sabía. Los propietarios es como si fueran invisibles, excepto por una corta y agradable visita que me hizo uno de ellos el día de mi segundo desayuno; a parte de eso, yo con quien interactuaba era con un ayudante simpático pero parco. Atholdene House está en una calle residencial moderadamente concurrida, bastante bulliciosa a las horas punta, pero normalmente tranquila. Está a un agradable paseo de 10 minutos del centro por las escaleras Market Brae.

      Reizendes, gemütliches Hotel

      from

      Atholdene House ist ein reizendes Haus aus dem 19. Jahrhundert und befindet sich auf der Southside Road in Inverness. Weniger als 30 Sekunden entfernt finden Sie zwei Hotels/Restaurants, Victoria Wines (Wein und Bier), Harry Gow (exzellente Süßigkeiten und Gebäck), eine Apotheke, zwei Friseursalons und einen Zeitungsstand. Das Haus befindet sich etwa 10 Minuten Fußmarsch von der High Street in Inverness entfernt. Das Gebäude ist alt und die Zimmer malerisch und sehr gemütlich und sauber. Das Frühstück hier ist unvergleichlich. Seien Sie hungrig: wenn "komplettes schottisches Frühstück" angekündigt wird, dass meinen die das auch so. Komplett. Schottisch. Fein. Der Frühstücksraum hat eine Aussicht über die Southside Road, wo viele Passanten vorbeikommen, die zur Grundschule und weiteren Schulen, oder zum nahe gelegenen College unterwegs sind. Althodene House ist im Crown-Gebiet gelegen. Dies ist der Ort, an dem der "Schlächter von Cumberland" die Nacht über lauerte, bevor die Schlacht bei Culloden stattfand, als die stolzen Highland-Clans stark geschwächt und zerstreut wurden. Die Besitzer von Altholdene sind wundervolle Leute, die ihre Rolle als Gastgeber genießen und auf sehr unaufdringliche und bescheidene Art den Aufenthalt des Gastes so angenehm wie möglich machen - man fühlt sich wie zu Hause. Eines der besten Unterkünfte in den Highlands.

      ¿La mejor casa de huéspedes en la que me he alojado nunca?

      from

      Hago eco de todo lo que ha dicho la última persona. Era mucho más de lo que yo esperaba de una casa de huéspedes, era más bien como un mini-hotel. El desayuno es una verdadera comida, parece que utilizan productos de calidad y no la comida barata de catering que normalmente encuentras en estos sitios. Además están mejorando las habitaciones y pronto todas tendrán duchas potentes, colchones de alta calidad, etc. En realidad las habitaciones no tienen un tamaño malo, y acaban de poner doble acristalamiento en el edificio, así que son silenciosas. La familia propietaria es muy simpática y servicial, y su personal también. De verdad que se desviven por ayudarte. Lo único negativo que se me ocurre es que los precios están empezando a ponerse como los de un hotel por una doble y esto puede echar a la gente que no conozca la calidad de esta casa de huéspedes para atrás. No creo que su sitio web le haga justicia. Está a unos 10 minutos andando del centro y de la estación. Lo encontré en TripAdvisor y no me arrepiento para nada, ¡volveré!

      Wunderbar

      from

      Eine bequeme, heimelige Unterkunft mit wunderbaren Gastgebern. Das Frühstück war sehr gut, einschließlich dem Haggis (schottische Spezialität aus Innereien) und der Blutwurst. Die Unterkunft ist ruhig und bis ins Stadtzentrum sind es ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuß. Die Besitzer sind sehr hilfsbereit und geben gerne Wegbeschreibungen und Empfehlungen zum Abendessen. Falls ich jemals wieder nach Inverness zurückkehren sollte, dann würde ich wieder im Atholdene House übernachten.

      Maravilloso

      from

      Un cómodo y hogareño lugar con unos anfitriones encantadores. El desayuno era muy bueno, incluyendo Haggis y Black Pudding. La propiedad es tranquila y está a unos 10 minutos andando del centro. Los dueños nos ayudaron mucho dándonos direcciones y recomendaciones de sitio para cenar, etc.

      Si vuelvo a Inverness seguro que me alojo de nuevo en el Atholden House

      Wonderful

      from

      A comfortable homely place with wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were very good, including the Haggas and Black Pudding. The property is quiet and located about a 10 minute walk from the City Center. The owners are very helpful with directions and recommendations for dinner etc.

      If ever in Inverness again I would certainly stay a the Atholdene House again.

      The best B&B ive ever stayed at?

      from

      I echo the views of the last person. Well above what I expect from a B&B, more like a good mini-hotel. The breakfast is a true meal, appears to be using quality produce and none of the cheap catering food normally found in such places.

      To add the rooms are mid way through an upgrade and shortly all rooms will have power showers, high quality matresses etc. The rooms are not a bad size either really and the building has just been double glazed so rooms are silent.

      Very freindly and helpful owning family, and their staff. They really do go out of their way to be helpful. The only downside I can think of is that prices are starting to get to that of a hotel for a double and this may put people off who are not familar with the quality of this B&B. I dont think their website does the property full justice.

      About 10mins walk from the city centre/station.

      I found this B&B via trip advisor and have no regrets, i will be returning!

      Lovely, homey place to go.

      from

      Atholdene house is a lovely 19th century home on Southside road in Inverness.

      Less than 30 seconds away, you'll find two hotels/restaurants, Victoria Wines (wine and beer), Harry Gow (excellent sweets and pastries) a chemist, two hair shops and a newspaper seller.

      The house is a bare 10 minutes from Inverness High Street.

      The house is old and the rooms are quaint but very comfortable and clean.

      The breakfasts here are unmatched. Be hungry: when they say "Full Scottish" they mean it. Full. Scottish. Dellish. The breakfast room faces Southside road were much foot traffic passes on the way to the local elementary and junior high schools and to the college, one block further on.

      Althodene House is situated in the Crown area, which is the place the English army under the butcher of Cumberland lay in wait the night before the battle of Culloden, when the proud Highland clans were decimated and scattered.

      Altholdene is owned by wonderful people who enjoy their guests and unobtrusively make your stay as comfortable as if you were at home.

      One of the best places to stay in the highlands.

      Tidy though a bit faded; wonderful breakfast

      from

      My £30/night single room at Atholdene House was small and basic, and though adequate for my needs and quite tidy it felt a bit faded to me. The ensuite had a shower but no bath. Floors creaked and the walls were thin, I could hear water splashing in my neighbor's basin; thank goodness he didn't snore! The window blind was translucent and the town lights were bright enough I needed to wear a night mask to sleep. The full Scottish breakfast was wonderfully tasty, hearty, and filling, twenty times better than the breakfast at the luxury meeting hotel I'd come from. I was not told of nor did I see a common room, so I assumed there wasn't one, but I looked again at their website just now and apparently there is; what a shame I didn't know. The proprietors were invisible except for a brief and very pleasant visit I had with one of them at my second breakfast; otherwise all my interactions were with a nice but laconic helper. Atholdene House is on a residential, moderately traveled street, busy at commute hours, but generally quiet. It is a pleasant 10-minute walk to downtown by the Market Brae stair.

      ... Edinburgh before the drive to Inverness. We ended up at Edinburgh castle and it was great to look at the history of the Scots Guards and how big a part the pipers played in their regiments. I saw a great painting which was titled the Thin Red Line, Google it I loved it. There were a few Victoria Crosses on display and I am amazed that each museum seems to have some on display, whereas ours are only displayed at the Australian War Memorial. We then loaded into the car ...

One moment bright sunshine reflecting off autumn colours, the next crystal clear waters of glorious loches and cloud shrouded mountains. These areas needed far more time to explore than we had and this area is definitely on the return ...

It was a sleepy little village being an active fishing port since the 1700s. Just before Stonehaven we spotted a sign for Dunnottar Castle. It is a ruined medieval fortress on a rocky out crop and ...

      Loch Ness is beautiful, even in the cold rain. We didn't see any monsters but Johnny did a good impression. It took us about three hours to make it down the length of the lake because we made frequent stops to either look at the views or wait out the rain or let people pass. If it wasn't so rainy we would have gone for a hike in the super dark and dense ...
