The bed was so comfortable the room was spotless, the towels were the lovely fluffy ones! Sandy and Sandra welcomed me not only into there home but also there family. Sandra is a great cook food was absolutely amazing... More

We arrived really late, and yes...got warm welcome and pot of tea. Room looked lovely, clean towels and big bed. But what i doubted was if sheets were changed after last guests. I bet that it was not!! We were that tired that we didn't want to argue. Breakfast were ok, however I've never seen such mess in the kitchen... More

We got there around dinner time and accepted Sandra's offer to cook us dinner. Delicious dinner!!! I had homemade meat pie & my partner had fish & chips. Breakfast was... More

On arrival we were greeted by Sandra and Sandy, who showed us round what is essentially their home.We were offered three rooms to choose from and we took the one upstairs, the other two being on the ground floor.Sandy helped us carry our luggage up to the room and then they invited us into the lounge for tea/coffee and biscuits....

The Antlers has the most fantastic view of the North Sea! The room was clean and very comfortable. The family were lovely, very welcoming. We had an evening meal and breakfast during our stay, both were excellent!

our trips to Caithness are not complete without a stay at Antlers, huge rooms, lovely and clean, and the breakfasts are huge, no need to eat for the rest of the day. 2106 is the next planned trip, but we will be back at Antlers for sure

Amazingly, no one of the reviews I had read before talked about the mist, the snooker table in the kitchen or the antler statue in the garden. When we arrived to The Antlers, in the late night and after an exhausting drive in the mist, we were surprised by some of those surrealistic details, like the massaging sofa in the... More

Having stayed here three years ago, we were so looking forward to returning to 'The Antlers'. We are currently spending three months touring the UK, as we did three years ago, and 'The Antlers' is one of only two B&B's that we made sure to book again, on this second trip. Sandy and Sandra's hospitality is second to none .... More

We stayed at the Antler coming back from the Highlands. Best B&B we had on our one week trip in Scotland. Great hospitality, spacious & beautufully decorated rooms (free wifi in entire house), very clean, excellent dinner and breakfast (both with choice). Loved the spectacular view of the coast! We will be back!
