Elizabeth and Doug couldn't be more gracious. From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left, we were well taken care of - our dinner reservations were made, our laundry was tended to, and our breakfast was outstanding. The room was beautiful and the entire home felt welcoming and warm. We are beyond grateful to Elizabeth for offering to help us with our wash - and little did she realize just how much we had! We, of course, didn't account for the fact that washing machines vary in size and being from the U.S. doesn't help our sense of size as everything here is big - not meaning better - just big! We learned this while driving through Scotland where the roads have no shoulders on either side. It makes sense that vehicles are smaller as well. Throughout our stay in Scotland, we stayed in 8 different B&Bs, and hotels - Oakvilla Guest House was our top favorite of them all! Thank you again Elizabeth and remember to bring your laundry to us the next time you visit the states!

Tips:

If you are arriving on a weekend night, be sure to book a reservation ahead of time during the summer months. We were fortunate to get in to a place last minute.

Such a wonderful stay!! My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Oakvilla Guest House on our trip to Inverness and we loved it. Elizabeth and Doug were so very nice and helpful. Elizabeth even made dinner reservations for us. It was like visiting family. The room was beautiful and so very clean. Thing was top notch. If we ever go back to Inverness there is no where else I would rather stay.

Tips:

We had dinner at Johnny Foxes thanks to Elizebeth’s help and it was great. They have a great Cajun burger and my husband had haggis and mozzarella pizza which he enjoyed. There are great little shops and the view from the bridge is spectacular. Take time and just stroll along the quaint streets.

Elizabeth and Douglas will help you to get the best out of your stay! We didn't get to see much Inverness, that is for the next time. We did see Clava Cairns (fantastic!), highland games in Forres (a must!) and the beautiful Loch Ness on a route less travelled. Take your time, stop often and enjoy your time in this beautiful country.

Elizabeth and Doug were fabulous hosts! They have done a wonderful job of decorating and have thought of everything to make a stay ideal.

Tips:

Ate dinner at the Waterfront which was about a 5 minute walk. Food was delicious and service was good. Doug was nice enough to make a reservation for us knowing it would be hard to get a table.

Doug and Elizabeth were amazing and made our stay such a wonderful experience! Elizabeth gave me a Birthday card the morning we left on my Birthday and these personal touches truly made the stay a wonderful time. The breakfast was delicious and prompt. I love the charm of this Bed and Breakfast. Clean, tidy and comfortable. Enjoyed some tea as soon as we made it to the room and Doug was available to answer any questions we had. I so loved Oak Villa! I hope to return one day and highly recommend this lovely retreat to any traveler needing rest and kind service

Tips:

We enjoyed the Waterfront Restaurant and Bar and the lovely music there! Beautiful City. If you visit in Spring, be sure to pack warm clothing if traveling from further down south. Walk around, enjoy the beauty of this coastal town.

We were treated to excellent customer service in places to eat, within walking distance, and historical property to visit.

Tips:

A high point was our dinner at the Waterfront pub. The night we ate there we were treated to live local music with pipes, two accordion players, three fiddle players and a flute. Rock on!!

We always recommend a visit to the "Waterfront". Who doesn't like a local Pub, with its splash of character and musical nights.

This Inverness B&B has earned the distinction of a 4-star “Scottish Guest House” for good reason. The establishment is pristine, tastefully and entertainingly decorated, and you are welcomed as a very special guest from the very first moment you meet Darren, and Veeno, the cousin proprietors. These two lovely people take a great deal of pride in their establishment and show a great deal of professionalism. Your bedroom is immaculate, with a wonderfully firm bed, and they have added extra touches so that your stay will be comfortable. The breakfast is varied and generous and orders are taken for individualized hot meals. The B&B is located in a very lovely neighborhood. It is only a short walk to city central, or a neighboring restaurant. I cannot recommend this B&B enough.
