      Historical Traveler Reviews Avalon Guest House Inverness

      Warm Welcome

      from

      We stayed at the avalon guest house for 4 nights,2 adults 2 children and our little dog came too.

      We arrived quite late after a long journey and had a warm welcome from the owners.The guest house is warm welcoming and very friendly, with a good hearty breakfast, which is highly recommended :)

      The bedrooms were clean and tidy and nicely decorated.

      All in all we definately would stay again if we ever get to inverness again.

      Enjoyed the Avalon

      from

      We enjoyed our stay at the Avalon Guest House, as it was clean and comfortable. It is situated only a 10 minute walk from the town centre. On arrival was provided with a map and recommendations for the local restaurants, which was very helpful.

      Would not hesitate to stay there again on a return trip and would recommend it to friends and family.

      Excellent accomodation and hospitality

      from

      Best Guest House in Inverness & Wireless Internet for business travellers

      from

      Our stay at lovely Avalon Guest house was 5 nights Sept 2007.

      Jo & Bradley without a doubt love making their guests feel welcome, comfortable and pampered. We absolutely were from the minute we pulled into the drive.

      Breakfast was excellent. You are spoilt for choice. Hot cooked breakfast is cooked to order for you by Bradley and Jo always very cheerily serves you.

      Rooms are modern comfortable, very clean, and afforded a really good nights sleep. We had a lovely view into the garden with the birds enjoying the bird feeder & bird bath every day.

      Bradley has also made sure there is wireless internet available which makes staying there while on a business trip a real bonus.

      Location is excellent just on the outskirts of town. It is only about 10 minute walk to town centre with lovely alternate walk along the River Ness. There are many lovely restaurants and shops in town centre to choose from.

      It is also only a few minutes drive the other direction and you are in the lovely countryside, hills and lake as well as Loch Ness Centre & Urquart Castle.

      Looking forward to our next stay at Avalon Guest House with Jo & Bradley in a couple weeks time.

      An excellent Guest House

      from

      This was our first visit to Scotland and what made our visit was the Avalon Guest House.It is situated in a nice area and only 10 mins.from Loch Ness.Our room was excellent and had everthing in it you would get if you stayed in a 5* hotel.The breakfast was a delight,fresh fruit salad,cereal,fresh fruit etc. and the cooked breakfast was not kept under those awful heated lamps that a lot of places use but was cooked fresh as you ordered it.An absolute delight to start your day.

      Joe & Brad Norris the owners are lovely couple and nothing was to much trouble for them.We have stayed in lots of hotels and guest houses and allways found a fault or two but as hard as we looked we could not fault the Avalon.

      If you are going to visit Loch Ness and all the interesting places around it i would recomend you stay at the Avalon,you wont be dissapointed.

      Best guest house in Inverness!

      from

      After many trips to Inverness, buisness and pleasure, I can honestly say this is the BEST guest house we have stayed in, in Inverness. We had 2 nights in Avalon and couldn't have been made to feel any more welcome, just a 10 minute drive to Loch Ness or a short walk into the city centre, Brilliant!

      and I must say Bradleys freashly cooked breakfast was great too, just what we needed for a day walking around the loch.

      Next time we visit it will definatly be here that we stay.

      Thanks Jo and Bradley

      A real delight!

      from

      We booked our stay at Avalon direct on their website and we really made a great choice! This was the best Guest house we stayed in whilst on our trip around Scotland!

      Brilliant location just outside Inverness (2 minutes by car or 15 minute walk along the river to city centre) you are close enough for everything yet further enough away from the hustle of the city centre. There are some lovely walks right on your door step and you are only 5 minutes from Loch ness by car!

      Our room was so comfortable and immaculately clean. Lots of little touches made all the difference! Like chocolates on the towels and fresh flowers in the rooms, cute little toiletries and also the fresh milk for our cup of tea!! The standard of a hotel room but far more of a personal service.

      The owners (Jo & Bradley) have only been here since May but they sure do know the meaning of great hospitality. They are really friendly, welcoming and helpful and make sure you have everything you need to feel at home in their guest house.

      The breakfast was delicious! Lots of choice including a great fresh fruit salad everyday. You wont go hungry and it sets you up for a days exploring around Inverness and the highlands.

      We will definitely return to this guest house and would recommend it to anyone travelling to Inverness. It was first class!!

      Haven away from home

      from

      My husband & I were decided to make a weekend break out of a semi work trip & booked into Avalon at the last minute. This was the best decision we made as although the weather was inhospitable the welcome we got at Avalon more than made up for it.

      The owners Jo & Bradley have a formula that works so well that you can not believe that you have known them for only a short space of time. Every home comfort detail has been thought through for you (key in the toilet !!) with no stone left unturned.

      The bedrooms are spacious, clean & well thought out with the right amount of luxuries.

      On departure we were asked would we change anything...the answer, no. Jo & Bradley have a formula in Inverness that leaves a lot of large hotel chains in the dark & needing to take notice of what Jo & Bradley are doing.

      Keep up the good work guys as we will be returning for another visit.

      A Gem to be Treasured

      from

      We didn't find Nessie but we did find a priceless gem!

      Our stay at Avalon was delightful. We found the accomodations very clean and comfortable, feeling as if we were at an idealistic home away from home!

      Our hosts, Jo and Brad were friendly, cheerful, generous and helpful in all ways. They went out of their way to make sure that all of our needs were met and that we were happy, comfortable and enjoying our stay.

      The warm and welcoming atmosphere, from the fresh flowers in each room and softly played scottish music and a seasoned attention to detail that only experience can bring, showed the amount of pride and care that our hosts have for their establishment and their customers.

      We were in need of handicap facilities and their room for us was equipped perfectly and met our needs to a tee. Access from outside and into the room worked fine, the bathroom was more than adequately sized for a wheelchair and the shower was easy to get in to and use as well.

      Breakfast was laid out beautfully and thoroughly satisfied our every whim in the morning. Jo makes a delicious fresh fruit salad and Brad's cook to order hot breakfast left us more than ready to face our day searching for Nessie and exploring all the wonders that the Inverness/ Loch Ness area holds!

      Avalon is placed in a perfect area that is just outside the city, and walking distance to both nearby and in-town restaurants (we loved the Bella Italia here), the river (fishing and boat watching), the Inverness leisure center (water slides, wave pool, etc.) and to shopping for daily and souvenir items. Day trips from here to see ruins, landscape, historic places and even a winery were easy and our Hosts not only provided a great selection of pamphlets for attractions and events, but also keep a book for guests to rate these that we found helpful in choosing our activities and eateries. Each morning we discussed our plans with our hosts and were given tips and suggestions to make our day a great one!

      If you are headed to the Highlands, Inverness is one place you can not miss, and if you stay the night (and you should spend several), staying at the Avalon will be a choice you will be glad you made!

      What a great experience!

      from

      We are a family of 4, and have stayed in Avalon Guest House during 6/23 - 6/25/2007. The guest house has new owners and they certainly were very helpful and went the extra mile to make our stay as pleasent as possible - despite the fact it was a last minute call. Our stay turned out to be great! Breakfast has a variety of offerings one is not likely to find in most B&B, including fresh fruits, cerials as well as a full cooked English meal. Our room was very clean and spacious and easily accomodated 4 persons. It had a nice size bathroom, with all the required extras of a bathroom kit, as well as a nice complimentary basket. Complementary WiFi Internet access was available as well.

      I definitely recommend this guest house, Jo and Bradley were very friendly and provided everything you would expect in a home away from home. Thanks! We will definitely return!

      ... three hour drive to Inverness. The scenery was brilliant and it is interesting to see how many places around Newcastle and the Hunter Valley have the names of Scottish towns and cities. We are staying right on Loch Ness and are looking forward to a cruise on the Loch and a visit to Urquart Castle tomorrow. The food here was pretty good and Tina not being a scotch drinker, enjoyed the couple that she tried tonight. And yep they had Haggis on the menu, but I passed this ...

      Another sunny day, the weather has been kind to us, and we have enjoyed mild days with fine weather. Today we leave the Isle of Skye heading back towards Edinburgh where we will spend a couple of days before leaving for Norway. Having missed the last tour of the Eilean Donan Castle on our way to the Isle of Skye we decided to stop for the tour this morning before heading off along the coastal road ...

I marvelled at the views of the surrounding cliffs and even spotted some seals frolicking in the cold North Sea. They were too far away to photograph. Our most northern point was Cullen before heading south west ...

      Around 7:00, we finally headed to the hostel with a quick stop at Aldi to pick up dinner and snacks. The hostel is pretty nice and there is a car park right next door. We are in an eight bed dorm by ourselves right now. Cross your fingers that it stays that way. We seem to get the good places where we stay for only one night. Tomorrow we are going to see two girls from Ecuador that we used to work with.
