I had the great fortune to stay here for one night 24 September, 2009. As I have some mobility problems due to arthritis, I had requested the ground floor level double room. We arrived and got a parking space right outside the front door, then were greeted by Ali, our Hostess. She showed us our room, which exceeded all expectations, being by far the nicest room of our holiday. It was an immaculate, modern, spacious room, with a kingsize four poster bed, lovely bed linen, very nice furniture, quality crockery with the tea/coffee making facilities and a large, modern ensuite double shower room. We were asked if I would like a stool to use in the shower and this was brought immediately. The whole room and indeed ground floor of the house is totally wheelchair accessible, yet without having that "look" to it. We then settled down for a chat with our hosts, in their lovely bright living room, where Iain kept the roaring log fire stocked up. We were brought tea and biscuits and Ali even produced a large cushion to put behind me , for my comfort. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in, and the pillows were wonderful too. We chose to have breakfast at 8.30am and it too was excellent, with fruit juices, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, toast, preserves and full cooked option. We never felt hurried or hassled and were treated like good friends.
I liked that they keep their room rates the same all year round, at a VERY good £47 for the double ensuite room. I was very impressed when Ali told me that she feels it is unfair that single travellers are penalised for travelling alone, so she charges them only £23.50 for staying in one of these gorgeous four poster rooms. I don't believe that with the wonderful breakfast and free toiletries in the bathroom, a youth hostel could work out any cheaper!
Whilst we were chatting, two American tourists came to the door, rather shaken after being shouted at abusively by the B&B owner in the next house! (not a Scottish owner I may hasten to add!) Ali immediately took them in and unruffled them, apologised for being full up, then took them herself to another nice B&B nearby to settle them there.
For luxury, comfort, ambience and food, I don't believe this place can be beaten. It's lovely to know that places like Cuil-Na-Sithe and hosts like Ali and Iain exist, as they must give Scotland a great reputation, for foreign travellers.
