A warm and friendly Scottish Highland welcome from Richard and Susan at The Ness Guest House in Inverness, the capital city of the Highlands, Scotland. We renovated our Victorian family home, built in 1887, to create our cosy bed and breakfast with four comfortable en-suite guest bedrooms and retaining many of its original architectural features.

The B&B is ideally located in Inverness city centre, only a few minutes walk to Inverness Castle, the River Ness and the Eastgate shopping centre on the High Street of Inverness.

The bed and breakfast has free private off-street guest parking for four standard-sized cars. We are biker friendly and have secure anchor bolts in our car park for motorcycles. There is an 11kw Electric Vehicle charging point for each parking space, so every guest room has a dedicated EV charging point.

There is free Wi-Fi for our guests at the B&B.

We provide information on what’s on in Inverness (for example, where you can enjoy live Scottish music) and things to do in the Highlands.  We have maps and tourist information available and are happy to tell you our personal recommendations on where to eat and drink.

In addition to the many attractions the city of Inverness has to offer, The Ness Guest House is an excellent base for exploring the beautiful scenery of the Highlands and Loch Ness is only a short drive away.

Choose from a tasty full Scottish cooked breakfast or Scottish smoked salmon breakfast to get you ready for the day. These are included in the room price.

Whether you are travelling for business or pleasure, we want your stay with us to be extremely comfortable. Starting each day refreshed after a great sleep and a tasty breakfast.
