The picture on the web sites are very accurate, this house is full of collectable ceramics and art on the walls. They only rent out 3 rooms at a time in the house and there are no TVs in the rooms if that is what you like. It is as handy as they say to town, in fact I just... More

Kozo and John were excellent hosts to myself and my parents. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The room was clean and serviceable, beds comfortable and the bathrooms excellent. No complaints about the food - the Scots breakfasts were tasty. I warn future guests to ensure the bathroom window is closed prior to use, otherwise... More

The hosts are the sweetest ever. They prepare a delicious spread for breakfast. The house is quirky and delightful with so many collections that there's something interesting in every single square centimetre. It is well-connected with buses to the historical centre but it's also an easy 20mins walk with several interesting shops along the way.

I should have written this review long ago. I had an excellent stay at the Art House Morita B&B. The place is full of charm. Kozo and John were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was delicious. The B&B is a pleasant distance to stroll into the main tourist attractions. Above all though I appreciated how they went above... More

I had such three wonderful days with Kozo and John who are so friendly and charming. The whole guess house is full of awesome artworks which have already achieved the level of any museum so that I was immersed in a passion toward art. Also, John is an amazing chef so that I had wonderful breakfasts and also tea time... More

While I agree with most reviews that the B&B is charming, unusual, and very interesting with its extensive eclectic art collection, and that the hosts are gracious and personable, I felt it seriously lacked in certain basic points. The first is cleanliness. The whole house smells musty and is very dusty, including the bedrooms. There are cobwebs everywhere, and I... More

We stayed at the Art-House Morita B&B in July. The B&B and its owners (2 men, Kozo and John), are a quirky couple. The B&B itself is like an Aladdin's Cave, filled with all sorts of ornaments, trinkets and art work. It seemed that almost every square inch of wall space was covered in some sort of painting, which came... More

We stayed 3 nights with Kozo in the twin room. Indeed the house gives a different feel from most B&Bs because of all the paintings and artefacts in every part of the house. The breakfast was good. Kozo was very attentive while John was very chatty and opening to sharing his views. You will marvel at the passion and drive... More

I visited scotland first time, and stayed here first 2 days and the last day of a journey. The guest room is fantastic!! having special time surrounded by art collection. I appreciate the hosts Mr Kozo and Mr John who advice me about transportation and tourist spot. Look forward to coming back again.

I feel guilty for taking so long to write this review. And if it was not for the other reviews on trip advisor I would never have found them. Art-House Morita is a home away from home. Travelling solo was made easy with the friendly and helpful advice from both Kozo and John via emails and personal contact. The home... More
