We booked this as part of our costal tour around Scotland and it was, without a doubt one of the top B&B's we stayed in. Exceptionally high standard of decor throughout. Rooms, linen, breakfast and accommodation I would rate as 5*. Spotlessly clean throughout. Host's were a delight and the shortbread was a lovely touch. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

My husband and i stayed for two nights in early August and it was such a pleasant experience. The rooms are very clean and newly furnished and there was a beautiful smell about the place that immediately makes you feel welcome and at home. The hosts couldn't be more helpful, offering tips on where to eat, where to visit and... More

This B&B is amazing. The hosts Carol and Raymond really care about their guests. The room was clean and spacious and had a nice view. Breakfast is great and freshly prepared. Nothing to complain about, would stay here again.

Had a fabulous stay at Pennyland House B&B in the lead up to our wedding and honeymoon. Carol, Raymond and Alison were all so accommodating with us, our families and all the to-ing and fro-ing. The rooms are luxurious, the breakfasts are scrumptious and Alison even ironed the groom's shirt! Nothing is too much bother. This is without question our... More

Stayed for 4 nights in St Andrews and Royal Dornoch which are adjoining rooms. Highlights: Shower is AMAZING. Huge bath is pretty cool too. Breakfast is substantial, generous, terribly civilised and delicious (black pudding is divine), served on delightful blue and green tartan crockery. Bed very comfy, sheets quality, and a choice of pillows either soft or firm. Blackout blinds... More

I stayed for the first time in pennyland house and was not disappointed. Hosts Raymond & Carol very friendly and welcoming. I was made to feel very much at home. Room & house is immaculate and comfortable. Lovely furnishings & interiors and homemade shortbread in the rooms. Breakfast made freshly to order and nothing is a problem. I would recommend... More

I had a lovely stay at the the Pennyland House whilst on a business trip to Thurso. I can't recommend it enough. The owners were very welcoming and they have thought of absolutely everything with this b&b and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The building is absolutely gorgeous and very tastefully decorated.... More

I wasnt sure about staying in a B&B but this one is loads nicer than all the hotels in Thurso by far! I would recommend it to anyone. Really nicely decorated with really friendly owners and top quality facilities and an amazing view on your doorstep

We booked in for two nights but stayed three in this very high class establishment overlooking Thurso Bay and Dunnett Head. The rooms we had were large and luxurious, everyone working there was friendly and helpful and the only problem with the breakfasts was that we ate too much. I really can't imagine staying anywhere else in Thurso in the... More

Really no serious complaints here at all. This is a long review only for the courtesy of highlighting minor issues. We had an exceptionally large bedroom and a very large bathroom! We were treated to potato scones as an option for our cooked breakfast. I was embarrassed by a minor bit of confusion over our return after 8 pm when... More
