This is a lovely little B&B. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Rooms clean and comfortable. Ideal location in Durness - within very short distance of everything. Could maybe do with a TV/radio in the bedroom, although the residents' lounge is very pleasant.

The rooms are very small (literally no space to put stuff anywhere) and not very clean, the installations are old, the bath smells a bit fusty, the bed was "worn out", no TV in the room. It's basicly a hostal but calls itself "Guest House". If i read this expression, I expect something completely different. Breakfast room in the wintergarden... More

I really enjoyed my 1 night here ( in a nice location ) and was made to feel very welcome by all. It was also close to where my friends were camping, and if ever i am that way again i would book again.

Me and my friends had a lovely stay while travelling around the north. We stayed for 2 nights. The room was very nice and clean and everything you need is provided (shampoo, body lotion, shower gel and free wifi :) ) The owners are friendly and helpful. Lovely breakfast in the conservatory, if you are lucky you can also see... More

The listing said "purpose built" and it is, but to a tight budget. The rooms were clean but very basic with no televisions. On the plus side, the hosts were welcoming, the breakfast was fine and the location is perfect.

The outside appearance is that of 70s motel, reception is not appealing. The rooms are all a little dated and on the small side and the lounge needs a little TLC. There is no TV in the rooms however this is a plus considering the sound through the walls. We had pre-booked evening meal - two courses of good wholesome... More

We had a lovely stay while travelling around the north. Room was clean and we had a lovely freshly cooked breakfast. Weather wasn't at its best but we made the most of our short stay and would definitely stay again if we are in the area

We have stayed here over the years and have always been warmly welcomed. Nothing is too much trouble for the two lovely ladies that run it. The accommodation is excellent and the breakfasts delicious.

I chose this place for an overnight stay because a single room was comparatively cheap in an expensive area. The room was quite adequate (no TV but good free WiFi). The breakfast buffet was very minimal but the cooked breakfast was good.

This is the old style B&B. not trying to be anything it isn't. Rooms are small but perfectly clean and everything you need is provided. The owners were very helpful with local information. This was the cheapest B&B we stayed at but would return again.
