We stayed at the Cawdor House B & B for two nights in June and found it to be a wonderfully comfortable stay, the rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast is yummy with a great choice on the freshly cooked hot breakfast. The new owners are amazing and so helpful, we had a problem with the free Wi Fi... More

Cawdor House Bed and Breakfast was a wonderful addition to our Scotland visit. The rooms were comfortable and cozy and the location was within nice walking distance to shops, bars, restaurants, and the beach. Paul is a wonderful cook - we LOVED his food and most of all his hospitality. I would love to go back!

This B&B ranks in the top 5 of all the ones in Scotland that I have stayed in. The new owners are wonderful to talk to and very helpful with information. It was clean and the breakfast was great. Only complaint was the pillows were not very comfortable kind of flat. Otherwise I would definitely stay again and would recommend... More

We found Cawdor House "by accident" on our search for an accomodation before our flight home the following day and were surprised by lovely hosts, a beautiful and comfortable room and a real tasty breakfast with fresh fruit and a really good and strong coffee ( also soy- yoghurt was available). We would recommend Cawdor House as the place to... More

Cawdor House was an absolute gem. It's a beautiful stone built very close to the centre of Nairn. It is spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished with tasteful pieces and fabrics. We had the Garden Room which had its own entrance and was prettily furnished, warm and comfortable. Breakfast is taken in the main house and the quality and selection of... More

I would highly recommend the Cawdor house, Paul & Dora are wonderful hosts. Paul is a wealth of historical knowledge. We enjoyed the accommodating, breakfasts and dinners were wonderful. The location is central to many pubs, quaint shopping and hitorical sites. The beaches were lovely as well.

This little gem was one of the highlights of a recent Clans and Castles tour. Paul and Dora treated us like family, the rooms were home-like and comfortable, and Paul's cooking was better than a lot of the restaurant meals! Wish we could have stayed a week!

Lovely accommodation, breakfast was great. Nothing was a problem for Paul. Stayed for a few nights with friends. Went for a few walks by the coast and ate in a local restaurant recommended by Paul...very good. Two Championship golf courses in the Town by the coast, minutes away. I certainly will be returning to stay at Paul's to play both.
