A work friend and myself were staying in Helensburgh on business for 2 nights in January 2015. We had rooms 3 and 4 (upstairs). Wow. The rooms are superb! Big comfy beds, spotlessly clean, very fresh looking, tv with sky box, blueray dvd player, 3D glasses, fridge, kettle, tea/coffee/hot chocolate/biscuits/twix, free wifi AND a laptop in the room to use...

There is no question in my mind that this place deserves a 5 star recommendation. We've stayed in a lot of B&B/Guest Houses in Scotland the last couple of years, and this one stands out among many. I will admit that I was at first a bit put out by the pay-up-front policy and having to sign a waiver saying... More

Gadgetmadman, Owner at Sinclair House B&B, responded to this review

Thank you for your thorough and positive review. I thought I would respond to a couple of points; The honest answer as to why we take payment up front is because we get email notifications of guests who leave other establishments without paying so this pre-empts that scenario. It's really the same as any hotel as they take a note... More

Superb room and spotlessly clean. Lovely breakfast especially the fruit salad. Great location within Helensburgh and the surrounding area. Nothing to much trouble for Iain and Ishbel. Greatly appreciated the lift to The Hill House. Will definitely recommend to others.

Booked as soon as we got our Commonwealth Games, almost a year in advance, knew nothing other than the trains to Glasgow were very near by. What a find! Beautifully appointed accommodation. Impossible to imagine a better self catering situation that gives you a chance to relax from travel, access to all that Glasgow and the Highlands has to offer... More

We spent four nights in the self-catering apartment. It was immaculate, very well stocked, and beautifully decorated. The rooms were large and airy and there was a small office with a computer and printer. There is also a washing machine and dryer for longer stays. The owners, Iain and Ishbel Jackson, were very welcoming and charming. It's a short walk... More

Iain and Ishbel were great hosts. The room was well appointed, complete with Sky TV for early nights. Our room had recently been redecorated and each day it was spotlessly cleaned. as a location, its a two minute walk to restaurants in the town and a 10 minute drive to the southern end of Loch Lomond. Its also only an... More

After staying in hotels for three weeks, we were really looking forward to staying in a self catering spot. We found Sinclair House on Goggle - liked what trip advisor writers had said and so booked the self catering apartment. It was excellent! There was absolutely everything one would need plus more. The rooms were huge, comfortable, beautifully equipped and... More

I stayed for three nights at Sinclair House earlier this month with family. My room was spotless and extremely well appointed with a very comfortable bed. I really cannot think of anything that could be improved upon by the friendly hosts, Iain and Ishbel. There is plenty to do in the area and there is a good choice of eating... More
