Fodor's Review

Scottish author Neil M. Gunn (1891–1973), known for short stories and novels that evoke images of the Highlands, such as Morning Tide, Highland River, and Butcher's Broom, once lived in this lovely Victorian villa. On a quiet residential street with well-trimmed hedges, it's a few minutes from downtown Inverness. Careful decorative touches grace each subtly decorated room. The friendly owners provide excellent service and sound sightseeing advice.

Top quality Bed and Breakfast Inn in very convenient location

This is a very elegant house, providing lovely accommodation and fabulous breakfasts at a competitive price - you wonder why people bother with hotels when there are inns like this one. Our room was extremely tasteful and comfortable and well equipped with lots of extras to make our stay more comfortable. There's a guest lounge where you can enjoy a botle of wine (we took our own)and outside there's a very pretty yard with big trees which is nice

to sit in. It's a quiet street so we were undisturbed by noise, but we also liked being just 5 or so minutes from restaurants and stores. We liked Moyness House very much and hope to go back there.

Moyness House is a special find!

Moyness House has to count as the nicest b and b I have stayed in. It's a lovely Victorian house which has been beautifully restored with a real eye for detail. Lots of thoughtful touches everywhere - fresh flowers, big bowls of fruit, sweets, books, games. The bedroom we had was very comfortable, and it had a well equipped bathroom - plenty of big fluffy towels and good quality (Botanics)toiletries. And it really is just a short walk from the city

centre (unlike lots of other places that claim to be central but aren't!) Best of all were the owners, who gave us first rate advice on restaurants and were a fund of useful information on touring the area, and generally made us feel so welcome!
