Me and 8 others stopped here and couldn't have asked for a better start to our trip. Mark and Mary were great, chatty and wanted to make sure we all happy and had what we needed. The rooms were ideal, cool and clean. Showers were hot and we could lock our bikes safely away. It's what every b&b should feel... More

It's taken me ages to get round to writing this review because I wanted to do it justice. My friend and I stayed here at the end of two weeks cycling from Land's End to John O Groats. We'd stayed in all sorts of different places up the country and weren't sure what to expect from the John O'Groats Guest... More

The quaint bed and breakfast was just beautiful. The owners were friendly and always willing to go the extra mile to provide and great clean place to stay. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone traveling to John O' Groats. Mark and Mary were such great people and will definitely book there again when I'm up that way.

This really is one of the most delightful B&Bs we stayed in during our nine weeks of driving through Scotland. As soon as we parked outside the front door, the door opened, and our two days of total care and hospitality started with the warmest of welcomes. Mark and Mary are simply brilliant hosts. Our room was very nicely furnished,... More

Well you can't miss it as it's the first thing you see entering John O'Groats. Mark and Mary are truly the most accommodating hosts you could ask for. Very very flexible. the room was great. They just can't do enough for you. The breakfast is out of this world. Though I didn't try them, the scotch pancakes look delicious and... More

This is DEFINITELY the best B&B we have ever stayed in (and we've stayed in quite a few!!) Mark and Mary ensure you feel completely welcome and comfortable in their beautiful home and nothing is too much trouble for them. We were doing the Orkney tour and Mark insisted on taking us to the ferry in the morning then picking... More

I've passed this Guest House many times on the way into John O'Groats and been intrigued by the look of the place - somewhat out of keeping with its surroundings. However, it's been spruced up a bit so looks a lot fresher than previously. Inside could not be more different. It's clean, modern, comfortable and homely. As for the owners,... More

The outside photo of white building with red window sills was not too inspiring, however the reviews were outstanding. Once we arrived, we soon realized why. Mark and Mary are amazing hosts who are wonderfully welcoming. They spent several months completely re-decorating inside and out before they opened for business just over a year ago. They demonstrate an exemplary attention... More
