We stopped at Strathview again for a night on our way to Orkney, and I have to say the high standards haven't dropped at all. We found the property looked as welcoming as we remembered, and the room was beautifully clean as before. Love the bedcovers and the big, fat pillows - a luxurious, welcoming bed is just what you want to see after a long day on a motorbike!! And even if the bedclothes aren't to your liking , the colour doesn't affect the comfort. :)
A lot of trouble is taken to make sure you get exactly what you'd like for breakfast, prepared as you want it, and it's delicious; but what really makes Strathview for us is the little things, like fresh milk and mineral water in vacuum flasks and the friendly, helpful hosts.
When I talked to Mary about how lovely we thought it all is, she said she "just tries to think of what she would like", and it really does show.
Oh, and weather permitting, do have a cup of tea sitting on the decking looking out across the loch. If there's a better way of starting a holiday than a night at Strathview, I'd love to know what it is!
