Stayed 2 nights as part of a small group tour. Beautiful room, nice bathroom with heated towel rack and very good food. The hosts were excellent-friendly and very conscientious of our comfort. Great, quiet location, enjoyed walking to the beach. Location is central to many attractions.

Great B&B with a lovely breakfast. Very central but yet quiet with a nice couple as hosts, thank you for a great time although we had such bad weather when visiting Loch Ness! We loved the big room with ensuite and a big bathtub! :-)

We stayed for one night in Nairn, and we picked the Cawdor at random on the internet, what a good choice, the rooms were clean, comfortable and of a good size. The proprietor was very friendly and informative, we stay in many b and b's and we all agreed that the breakfast was the best we have ever had and... More

Unexpected stay here due to being let down last minute at another B&B. Checked out the reviews and this looked a good last minute option. Only a king-sized room left which we took even though it was above our budget. The room was large, clean with good en-suite. However, arriving at short notice the heating had not been on and... More

Sparkling clean, wonderful room, friendly hosts, conveniently located. It doesn't get any better than this. Because I have celiac disease, I am always grateful to folks like this who went out of their way to find gluten-free sausages and bread. It makes my life easier, and says that these people really care about their guests. Two very minor negatives. No... More

I spent several nights at Cawdor House B&B in July of this year, so a bit late with the review. I have traveled extensively and this is the first time I have felt that I absolutely needed to write a review. The B&B is lovely, very clean and well furnished. I loved that my room was bright and cozy, the... More

The friendliness and service at Cawdor House is outstanding. Perfectly positioned, clean, private, great food, and a very short walk to all facilities. The hosts happily went out of their way to provide us with a small request, which really made us feel warm and welcome from a long journey from Australia.

The staff are very very helpful! We arrived suddenly and although it was a very busy night the Lady with the bobbed blonde hair did find us a table. She was very helpful and always smiling :) The food was out of this world and it has been the very first for me ever....I managed to empty my plate!! Definitely... More
