we stayed for 3 nights in waterside guest house, and had a very nice time. The rooms looked like they had all been recently decorated and the beds were really comfy. The breakfast in the morning was lovely - with a big choice. One of our party was vegetarian and the owners were very accommodating. Nothing was too much bother.... More

We came to the north of Scotland more or less by accident and tried to get a B&B for the night. Here we found a twin room on ground floor. The room was very dark and the beds weren't very comfy. As it was ground floor and windows facing street it was really loud during night and morning as lots... More

Stayed here before getting the ferry to the Orkneys. Booked last minute, without looking at the reviews, wish we had seen them first! The welcome we received was not a welcome at all. We were shown to our room, then had to ask where the bathroom was. The internet didn't work, and the beds were terrible. They were so bad... More

Stayed here en route to Orkney. Booked at last minute, so not a lot available. This B&B could use some upgrading. My single room was small and very basic. Carpets and towels were thin; TV was tiny, but worked; the hall and rooms were dark and seemed damp. But the bed was comfortable enough and the shower was hot, and... More

We needed a good value B&B in Thurso and Waterside Guest house fitted the bill. No frills but comfortable and friendly. Our ground floor room was refurbished recently and spotless.

Don't advertise wifi if it doesn't work. Waterside is more like hostel than b&b. It was rude service.

After reading reviews on trip advisor, i must admit I was pretty reluctant to book this Bnb! However on arrival we were pleasantly surprised! We had an en-suite double room on the ground floor, which was spacious and modernly decorated in cream/neutral tones. The room has a nice faux leather bed and a flat screen TV. Bathroom had been newly... More
