Historical Traveler Reviews Trafford Bank Guest House Inverness
Trafford Bank is the place to stay!
If you are in the UK and you need a break from the bathroom size rooms and the closet size bathrooms, then Trafford Bank is the place to stay.
Not only are the rooms top quality, but also the hospitality and warmth from the management/owners are hard to beat anywhere in the world.
Trafford Bank is definitely on my list of places to revisit when I'm next in the area. Make your booking with confidence. Be careful, the beds are so comfortable they are hard to get out of especially with the soft duvet covers and great selection of free DVDs, which can be watched in the comfort of your room on flat screen plasma TVs!
It doesn't get much better than the Trafford Bank!!!
My wife and I stayed at the Trafford Bank along with my in-laws and we all agreed that it was one of the nicest and best run guesthouses anywhere. We had the Trafford and Floral suites and both rooms were exquisitely decorated, immaculate, and extremely comfortable. All the amenities of home are furnished and the host is super-friendly. The breakfast was outstanding and the overall décor of the guesthouse is beautiful. Prices were very resaonable. Good parking area and access to local hot spots! I only wish we had more time to spend there! Thank you Lorraine! October 18, 2003
The gold standard by which we will compare all other B and B's
It was our great good fortune to have booked in at the Trafford Bank.
The decor, the food and the amenities were over the top first class, with no comfort neglected. We walked into our room and wished we were staying our whole vacation there.
Shhh! Don't Tell Anyone!
We travel a lot and we always try to stay at B&Bs. Recently, we stayed at Trafford House and decided against telling anyone how great it is, because it will become too famous and wont have room for us. So were not going to let anyone know about the spacious, beautifully decorated rooms (each with a TV, tea/coffee service, supply of sweets,.and a days-end decanter of port), or the pristine baths (with lotions, potions, terry cloth robes, and interesting soaps), or the hearty breakfasts served in an artistically astonishing dining room, or the comfy couches in the lounge. And were not going to tell anyone about the great location of Trafford House, near the center of Inverness, or the warm welcome we received, or the transportaton one rainy night provided by the proprietors dad, or the extra soaps and shortcakes tucked into our bags upon departure. Nope, its just going to be our little secret!
B&B as an art form!
This B&B is a masterpiece even if it weren't for the fact that the owner is an artist. The setting, the luxurious accommodations, the friendly service, the wonderful delicious home-cooked full breakfast, and the absolute attention to every detail make this a masterpiece. If you are in the Inverness area do not deny yourself this experience. It is worth twice the price.
I stayed at the Trafford Bank September 2003 and was greatly impressed.
The rooms are spacious and have all the comforts of home. The breakfast in the morning was scrumptious and the owner goes out oh her way to make sure you holiday is excellent. This was the best stay I have had in Inverness and one of the best stays I have had in Scotland in over 5 trips. I highly recommend the Trafford Bank to anyone who wants Luxury and the feeling of being home.
So nice we stayed longer!
We travelled to Inverness with a recommndation from a friend saying we had to stay at this wonderful Guest House called Trafford Bank.
Thinking I was going to stay in an over frilly decorated B & B with bobbly sheets, a trickle of a shower and a need to ask for "just toast" for breakfast, I was immediately taken by suprise on arrival at this grand old house, oozing Victorian details. Greeted by the hospitable proprietor, Lorriane, I knew my friend's recommendation was more than commendable! The bedroom was huge with a kingsize bed, as was the bathroom with both a shower and bath. With 100% fine cotton sheets, the most comfortable mattress and pillows that felt like they belonged in some ritzy city 5 star hotel, along with the fresh Highland air, I slept like a baby. The breakfast that we had ordered the night before was delicous! We spent a couple of extra nights here because we loved it so much and saw more of the surrounding area that we would otherwise have missed. Pure luxury! Oh, and there's an excellent restaurant down the road with some of the best British New Cuisine I have ever tasted.
And I should know, I'm a cook!
Another Happy Guest
We stayed at TraffordBank in May and could not have been happier.
Lorraine Freel the owner noticed that we were trying all of the Scottish items on the menu and even provided us with Scottish pastries to try. THE BEST oatmeal I've ever eaten! Great place to stay.
Great Breakfast Menu with excellent food. The fruits and the special porridge made with cream is a must try.
At a rate of 65 pounds a night for a family room for 2 people, it is a steal. The location is in a great residential area just minutes from the city centre such that it is close enough to walk to any tourist attractions yet far enough not to be caught up in the city traffic. A cab/taxi from the bus station cost less than 3 pounds if you have lots of luggage.
The room is fantastic, well decorated and very clean. I had the the Trafford Suite with a king bed, a day bed (for another kid or guest) and a sofa. The room comes ensuite and with a tv. There is a nice touch with fresh fruits and flowers upon arrival. The bed and sheets are wonderfully soft and the towels has a nice slight scent. A bathrobe is even provided.
The lounge is so wonderful with sofas that is so welcoming after a long walk in the day, along with cable television. Alternatively, you could take advantage of the books and the various movies they have available.
The lady in charge, Miss Lorraine Feel provides excellent service throughout the stay and had given good advice about where to visit about Inverness.
The Best B&B in Inverness
This bed and breakfast is by far the best we've visited in Europe. We've been 5 times in the last 4 years and Lorraine Freel really has her act together! The room was very large and bright and beautifully decorated, with a very comfortable bed. The breakfast was fantastic, cooked to order, fresh and delicious. The bed and breakfast is situated on a nice tree lined street about a 10 minute walk for the city center. Lorraine did everything to make us feel at home and we could not thank her enough! If you go to Inverness, this is where you want to stay!

... over where we were to catch the cruise from, but we got there eventually. there was also some confusion over the provision of lunch as the promised cafe was closed and the cruise only offered chips and snacks.
Still, coffee and haggis flavoured chips for lunch is not bad. Followed by a block of scottish tablet.
Needless to say, we didn't see Nessie anywhere. It was surprisingly cold and windy out on the loch but a nice boat trip out to Urquart castle and ...

The castle here is the seat of the Duke of Atholl, head of the Murray Clan, and sits in 108 square miles above the river at the end of Glen Garry. We toured the 30 rooms that are open to the public, which present a wonderful picture of ...
The rash on Charlie's arms has thankfully started to abate, but now it's his legs that are the problem. So another uncomfortable night (for both of us!) but his stomach seems to be getting a bit better thank goodness!
This morning we visited the Culloden battlefield, the site of the last pitched battle on British soil, and one of the most defining moments in Scottish history. ...
... Morar is the largest deep, fresh water loch in Britain. River Morar is the shortest river--about three blocks? and arrives @the deepest seawater loch in Europe, which is Loch Nevis.
I also went to the Museum in Inverness and they have a wonderful fossil, geology, archaeology display. There are fossils from the ice age and at one time, Scotland was South of the Equator!
... terminated at a monument dedicated to the 1,500 Scots who lost their lives fighting for their freedom - or betraying the King, depending on how you look at it. We both felt that it was the most well done of all the battlefields we've visited... and there are quite a few!
After Culloden we drove up to Inverness, which is a gorgeous city that sits on the River Ness, with awesome views of the river flowing through downtown ...
