Sandown House and Liz were highly recommended to us by our friends who have used it frequently. I thought he was getting carried away when he was telling me about it, he wasn't, it was better than he described. When we arrived we had a very warm Highland welcome from Liz who put us at our ease immediately and explained... More

We normally like good quality hotels and like the depersonalised aspect so tend not to book B&Bs. However, I was struggling to book my normal hotel and came across Sandown House. It seemed pricey for a B&B but it looked amazing so we thought we'd try it out. From the moment we booked, we received a lovely email from Liz... More

The Sandown House is exceptional lodging for many reasons. Liz and her husband are friendly and gracious hosts, very knowledgeable about things to see and do in the area, and Liz is a wonderful cook. Her home made soda bread is delicious! We stayed 3 nights in the new 4 unit building and it was fabulous. The room was clean,... More
