Inverness accommodation

Did you know that Bannerman Bed and Breakfast provides child free accommodation?  It’s not that we don’t like children.  It’s just that sometimes it’s nice to stay in child free accommodation that’s exclusively for adults.  We have chosen not to squeeze in extra beds and cots to our lovely bedrooms so we can maximise the comfort for guests.  You can appreciate a comfortable night’s sleep in peace and quiet on your Inverness break and enjoy a relaxing breakfast without interruptions from the little ones.

Grown up Break

Of course there are lots of activities and places of interest to visit in the Highlands whilst getting away from the family.  As well as a vast array of historic venues like Culloden Battlefield, Dunrobin Castle and Urquhart Castle on the banks of Loch Ness, there’s stunning scenery to visit in every direction.  We have golden sandy beaches all along the east coast.  Nearby there are opportunities for dolphin spotting from land and at sea.  Wildlife fans can see an array of animals in their natural habitat at Loch Garten including the magnificent ospreys and there are glorious walks for all abilities not far from here.  For a bit of exercise you can hire bikes from Ticket to Ride which is a short walk away.  As well as providing the kit they will also advise you on the best routes and provide maps.

Distilleries and shopping

And when the weather’s a wee bit dreich there’s always a distillery or 2 to visit, the Black Isle Brewery and a bit of retail therapy in the Highland capital, Inverness.  Without the kids you can indulge in a few late nights.  Take in the wonderful selection of restaurants, which are walking distance in the town centre.  MacGregor’s bar has just recently won Scottish Bar of the Year.  As well as an impressive selection of Scottish drinks you can enjoy live music.  You can read more about our favourite Inverness restaurants here.

So go on … treat yourselves to an Inverness break and make the most of time away from the kids.

Eden Court Theatre  – A Cultural Hotspot!

We are a b&b near Eden Court Theatre

Eden Court Theatre

As a b&b near Eden Court Theatre, we are very lucky to have this amazing facility on our doorstep.

Eden Court Theatre, the cultural hotspot of the Scottish Highlands, is a magical centre for performing arts.  It has a broad programme of art and entertainment to suit all tastes and all ages.  There’s something for all whether you’re in to stand-up comedy, opera, musicals or traditional Scottish music.  With 2 theatres, a cinema, bar, restaurant and exhibition space there’s always plenty of choice on offer.  Over 300,000 people visit each year from throughout the Highlands.

The main theatre, the Empire, hosts productions by the Scottish Opera, the Scottish Ballet and a choral and classical programme.  We also get musicals on tour from the West End, well-known stand-up comediens and all sorts of great music acts.  There are also occasional talks including a memorable one from the Dalai Lama.

High Class Cinema

A varied programme of films is available in the cinema including the latest feature films and international choices.  All the theatres include comfortable well raked seating ensuring a good view wherever you sit.

Classes for All

The theatre works hard to support the local community.  A range of classes in creative skills, dance and drama are available and ensure continued interest in the theatre.  Former Dr Who’s assistant, Karen Gillan, began her acting career and part of the Senior Youth Group at Eden Court Theatre.

Food and Drink

There’s a comfortable bar and the restaurant overlooks the River Ness so it’s a great spot to stop for lunch whilst you watch the river view.  The striking building has a prime spot on the river, not too far from the Ness Island and Bught Park but also only 10 minutes walk from the centre of Inverness.

We recommend paying a visit to Eden Court whilst you stay in Inverness, especially if you’re staying here for a few nights.  There’s more details on What’s on in Inverness 2019 at Eden Court and other venues around Inverness.

The Mackintosh Room is the most requested out of our 4 guest bedrooms.  Perhaps it’s the striking red bedspread and red feature wall.  Perhaps it’s the Victorian ornate fireplace.  The overall feel is cosy but classy.  As you’d expect, we have all the home comforts you’d expect in an Inverness bed and breakfast.  Just like all the rooms there’s a flat-screen TV, tea/coffee, a silent fridge, hairdryer and free wifi.  We also provide bottled tap water and refreshing sweets for thirsty travellers.  The bed is king-size and very comfortable – that’s what our guests say about the Mackintosh Room.  It’s a large bed but the room is still on the generous side.

Stylish Ensuite

The Mackintosh Room bathroom is a room we’re very proud of.  Yes it’s small and functional but since being refurbished it always impresses.  The modern shower with chrome finish and wall hanging basin are contemporary and stylish.  The basin has a pull-out drawer to store your wash-bag and toiletries but there’s also plenty of shelf space around the basin.  The chrome towel rail keeps the room and the thick towels provided warm.  We also provide wall-mounted toiletries from Scottish Fine Soaps.  They are so popular we are often asked where you can buy them.

Of course all the bedrooms are comfortable and stylish.  Many guests come back time after time as they feel at home here.  This is a perfect base to explore the are and there’s so much to see and do.  How does this compare with your experiences of an Inverness bed and breakfast?
