“Absolutely fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Pottery house is situated in a beautiful, tranquil part of Loch Ness, in the village of Dores. The b&b is spotlessly clean and very pleasing to the eye. I liked the fresh milk and jug of water in the silent fridge, an excellent addition to the beverage making facilities. Breakfast was always a varied menu and high standard, delicious. The bed was utter luxury, the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on. We took advantage of the picnic basket service and it was well worth it, what a wonderful feast! We felt very welcome and looked after. There is a top notch bar and restaurant called the Dores inn, which is just a few minutes walk away. This far and above exceeded expectations. The choice and standard of food was phenomenal and the staff were very attentive.

I have stayed up in this area before but never in such an amazing tranquil spot as the Pottery house!!! My reservation for the Pottery house was made very easily over phone due to no internet connection on my rig and even a reservation at the Dores inn (5 min walk) was also made for our evening meal. We were made to feel welcome from start to fin. Room and on-suite was beautiful, very comfortable, spacious, clean and warm we stayed in the large king overlookin garden. I must say the welcome and information pack is the best and most informative ive seen. Breakfast was lovely so much to choose from ...the wholemeal and apricot bun is to die for i would put in request for this bun night before as different fresh buns everyday...fresh eggs and sausages mmm...(just missed my beans) thank you so much for having us ..we will b back!!! :0)

My wife and I traveled from Australia and stayed here for one night. The welcome was great, the room was immaculate and comfortable.
Went to the Dores inn over the road and had a great feed, and good beer, right on the loch.
The breakfast the next day was amazing, Haggis was great and the service was second to none.
This stay was the best we had in the 7 B&B's we stayed in, we will most definitely be coming back for another visit, and will be staying at the Pottery house.

Thanks to John and Glen for making our stay a great one!

Scott and Carly.

Could not fault the place. The rooms were immaculate, attention to detail superb, breakfast selections wonderful, everything was just great. We will definitely be back! John and Glen are welcoming, informative (the information in the rooms about things to do in the area was exceptional, especially the informed sections with our hosts personal opinions) great cooks and superb hosts!

We stayed at this B&B around mid- September for one night. The house is in a quiet location, away from traffic noise. We had the upstairs double bedroom overlooking the garden, which was large, comfortable, clean and very well appointed, with a nice bathroom. John and Glen were both friendly and breakfast was very good. We ate at the Dores Inn, which is a short walk away and was excellent. We had a short but very pleasant stay and would recommend.

The Pottery House is the best B&B we have ever stayed in! The photograph's on trip advisor don't do the rooms justice, very spacious & very clean...they cater for every need from chilled water to an amazingly comfy bed!! We loved the view from our room & the breakfast room. Our breakfast was perfect to stat to our day, high qaulity & tasty food. Dores is a very peaceful & beautiful area of bonnie Scotland! We loved it!!
