“Best B and B Ive ever stayed in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We booked a night at The Hawthorns,upon arriving Teresa greeted us like friends and we were shown in to their beautiful home. Our room Willow was so well appointed everything you could want,specially the home made shortbread. Whiskey the dog came and introduced himself,he's very cute.
Whilst there I have some serious health problems and unluckily I was I'll. Teresa and her daughter Becky immediately called the doctor and made sure we both had everything we needed. I didn't have any breakfast but my other half did delicious was the verdict,plenty of choice anything you could ever wish for. If you ever stay in May do not miss out on a stay at Hawthorns,its a treat!!!

I can honestly say that the Hawthorns is the most welcoming B & B I have ever stayed in. Teresa is a fabulous cook and hostess. We were made to feel so welcome. The little extra touches, like the wonderful home made shortbread, made all the difference. Definitely the place to stay when travelling in the Highlands.

Hawthorns has to be the best B&B I have ever visited. The house is wonderful, tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. Theresa is a fantastic cook, her breakfast and evening meals were very tasty and used very high quality produce. But it was the little touches that make Hawthorns extra special; homemade shortbread on the tea tray, thoughtful additions in the bathroom, stacks of dvds to watch should you wish. Do go, you'll love it!

My wife and I have visited numerous B&B's on our travels over the years, I have to say that The Hawthorns is easily the best.
Theresa is a lovely lady who is more than happy to share her vast knowledge of the local area.
The house and room were immaculately clean and beautifully decorated, a real home from home. A highlight for me was meeting the amazing, mad talking dog (go see for yourselves).
Theresa, we saw the Donkey.......what a cutie!!!!

When you book a B&B you sometimes feel you're taking a chance with the accommodation, rest assured you have nothing to worry about with the Hawthorns. From the moment you walk in you can see this place is special , the entrance hall is beautifully decorated and this carries on throughout. The bedrooms are immaculate. There really is nothing that has been left out. Theresa( the owner) must have visited many places to find out what shouldn't be done and what could be done better because she does an amazing job and last but not least (obviously) she is a great cook . The breakfast was awesome and what I would recommend if you are staying would be to take up the offer of an evening meal you will not be disappointed.

Made to feel very welcome from the minute you step in the door......very high standards of cleanliness throughout.. Ideal location for Ferries to Orkney, ...My only regret after travelling to this area for the last four months is that I didn't find it sooner!!! A very hard working Theresa ensures that you want for nothing she even took me to visit one of her friends who's donkey had given birth the night before!!! My advice is to get and and explore the entire area as there are some real gems of places right on the doorstep of this magnificent B&B

Room Tip: Fantastic value for money, excellent standards of rooms and fab breakfast. Forget large hotels..Afte...

This beautiful home was one of the best B & B's that we have ever had the privilege of staying at.Nothing was too much trouble for our delightful hosts who made us feel like friends visiting instead of paying guests. There was a mouth watering breakfast, the rooms were good sized and lacked for nothing. There was plenty of parking and easy to find in an ideal position to visit this beautiful area. We felt truely sad that we had not arranged a longer stay.
