We spent 4 nights in December and it was amazing. We were greeted by the hosts Andy and Karen, they were so welcoming and made us feel like home. We were given directions for what is worth to visit. We traveled by car and there were plenty of parking spaces at the front. Room was just perfect with its taste... More

Myself and my husband stayed here for 4 nights in order to explore Edinburgh. We had a room at the very top. Comfortable enough. Major downside was the shower... Freezing cold then boiling hot with no pressure. We did raise this issue but in all fairness not til the day we left. Some port of some sort in the room... More

My partner and I stayed for the weekend and although the room was functional there were a lot of missing touches and some updating and refinement is definitely needed. We stayed in room two and there was no dressing table or chair to sit and do hair and make-up, which to me made things difficult as we were having a... More

Two nights with Andy and Karen at Sandaig Guest House turned out to be a great way to start our tour of Scotland. We showed up hours before we could check in but it was no problem. We parked our car out front and didn't drive it for two days. Why? No need. You ride the buses everywhere. The bus... More

The room we stayed in was very clean and well decorated. There was quite a few stairs as we were on the third floor so if disabled like me I would recommend asking for one of the rooms on the first floor, still stairs but not too bad. It was a pleasant surprise to see that a small decanter of... More

Room was nice, clean and spacious but............shower awful, kept running hot and cold over our 3 day stay. Standing ages avoiding cold water whilst waiting for hot to flow to rinse my shampoo out. Very frustrating needs addressing :-(

I stayed at the Sandaig for 3 nights, the hosts were a very lovely n helpful couple who looked after me when I got sick on the 2nd night. The guest house itself is located in a quiet area yet very convenient, only 10minutes away from the city center on the bus. Rooms were clean n comfortable. The full Scottish... More
