A very welcoming and friendly B&B. The room was big and comfy and the breakfast was brilliant. Cromarty is an interesting little village with lots of history and nice local walks. This is a good place to base yourself for exploring the Moray Firth area. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful visit in a charming, clean and beautiful house with a wonderful garden. The breakfast was delicious and ample. Cromarty is a delightful town. Check out the bakery. We would go back and explore the region given more time. And definitely stay at Sydney House again.

We had an exceptionally comfortable stay here in Cromarty. Our host Alastair was mega helpful. The rooms are spacious and really comfy. Breakfast lovely, nothing too much trouble.absolute quality . The garden is lovely if the weather is ok, unfortunately we had rain , but this did not deter our enjoyment. Thanks for a lovely stay.

I wanted to stay somewhere special, as well as getting value for money. That was exactly what I got at Sydney House. The quality from start to finish was first class. I considered other B&B's but so glad I picked this one. IF you are coming to Cromarty - this is the place to stay. Don't even consider anywhere else.

What can I add to previous reviews? Our experience reinforces what others have said about the quality of the accommodation and service at Sydney House B&B, and the warmth and friendliness we encountered. Breakfast has been mentioned a lot, but it's worth adding that the cooked breakfast is made to your specifications, picked from a list which includes vegetarian options.... More

Hard to add to the other reviews. We really enjoyed our stay here. Great host and very enjoyable breakfast. Rooms were large bright and perfect for us. Cromarty is really worth a visit, a picturesque village with some lovely walks.

A beautiful old house and spacious room with ensuite. Fabulous Scottish breakfast. Friendly helpful host. We would love to go back! Don't miss the Hugh Miller museum. There are also some most enjoyable walks from the village. Highly recommended.

Really good B&B in a very easy location in the centre of Cromarty. But very quiet. Room was large and comfortable. The en-suite facilities are spotless and the hot water is - well - hot. Breakfast is great, and our host couldn't be more welcoming. Cromarty is worth a visit -full of charm and character and this is a great... More

I can't recommend Sydney House highly enough! A warm and friendly reception from Alasdair, a beautiful room which was spotlessly clean and cosy, a delicious breakfast and the beautiful setting made for a wonderful stay. I am already looking forward to returning in April with my husband and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Cromarty. Thank you!
