We booked twin room with shower/toilet. On arrival we found an envelope with a room key and a receipt for our booking already taken out. On entering room 6 it had no shower or toilet just a dated sink in the corner of the room. A piece of paper was on the bed saying the shower/toilet were on another floor.... More

I agree with earlier reviews. The exterior needs a good makeover (costly, I know). I recognise the bit about your key being in an envelope on arrival and not seeing the proprietor (s)? Over a four night stay I think I might have seen them once but I'm not sure! Not a great fan of breakfast being in the fridge... More

To describe itself as a guest house is a bit of a misnomer. Check-in was a key in an envelope on an unmanned desk and breakfast is in the fridge in your room. One of the joys of Guest Houses for me is the interaction with the owners and other guests and this was completely absent. The room itself was... More

We stayed at the Thorlee for 3 nights, and whilst the room was a really good size, it was in real need of decoration. There was a towel on the bathroom windowsill, as the window leaked, and the paintwork and flooring were marked and in need of a proper refresh. We hardly saw the host, just a cursory discussion when... More

Have stayed in the Thorlee on many occasions but it just gets better and better. Kenny has put an immense effort into turning the place into the excellent accommodation it now is - all rooms are first class - well furnished and maintained. It has everything you need for a business trip. No hesitation in recommending the Thorlee.

This guest house is perfect for short or long stay, everything you need on your room, fully stocked mini fridge with cereals, milk, juice, cheese, rolls, etc, iPod docking station, flat screen tv and comfortable beds. Very clean, warm and worth every penny.

We spent two nights recently at Thorlee Guest House and it was perfect for all our needs. The location was ideal, right by the harbour and free parking! Dog friendly, which was great, and we soon found some really good walks for the dog in the grounds of Lews Castle, and further up Bayhead through The Arch - follow the... More

As I say don't judge a book by its cover. It's not much to look at from outside but inside rooms are lovely, very modern, good bed and shower!! Breakfast is cold buffet which is left in fridge in room but they also leave small complimentary bottles of wine!! Beside ferry terminal so very handy. Would definitely recommend

We used this as a stop over as we were getting the ferry the next day. Room was adequate and comfortable. No management or staff in sight, keys left on a table with our name on it. Breakfast was pretty poor and not what we expected when booking a room to include breakfast (although that now seems to make sense)... More
