Good Hotel Guide Review
Cheerful wisteria and flower-filled gardens greet visitors to this Georgian stone cottage-orné, ‘well located outside Inverness’. Guests praise the ‘wonderful hospitality’ from owners Mena and Robyn Aitchison: ‘They are such lovely people, and they try hard to please.’ ‘A home away from home’, the ‘pleasant, peaceful’ guest house has a lived-in feel: the lounge brims with ‘interesting objects’ – antiques, Persian rugs and Chinese vases, well-stocked bookshelves and potted plants. The ‘cosy’ bedrooms are individually decorated, and have a shower or Victorian roll-top bath. Each room faces the gardens, which are ‘wonderful to walk in; there are benches everywhere’. A guest with moderately limited mobility was well accommodated this year. ‘My small room was well suited to me and had an excellent walk-in shower. A handrail leading down three small steps to the bedroom would have been helpful.’. The Dower House is now run on a B&B basis only. Breakfast is ‘first rate’: proper porridge; eggs from resident hens. (Charles Elliott, Helen Anthony)
