“Perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2011

This is one of the best bed and breakfasts we have ever stayed in. The warm welcome to the lovely toiletries made it a perfect stay. Beautifully and tastefully decorated with the best bed and shower ever. Great breakfast menu with all locally sourced ingredients.
Liz the owner really made us feel at home and is a perfect host. The location for Nairn was perfect, a lovely walk along the golf course and beach into the town and lots of recommendations for good food and drink.
If you want a tasteful, modern and clean establishment with a good, warm welcome this is the place for you. 10/10!

First time I have felt compelled to right a review, I do travel a lot with business and came across Sandownhouse by accident. I called and made a reservation. Arrived arround 7pm and was showed to my room which was the last word in Luxury. The room was fantastic and I so have a thing for bedding, the quality of the bed, pillows and duvet was faultless. I was brought over a large glass of red by Liz who was checking to see if everything was to my satisfaction. The bathrooom was as well decorated as the bedroom and the Highland soap company products were amazing(usually a dove girl). Didn't know wether to wash with them or drink them. Breakfast was equally as fantastic. Will be back with my family.

We were greeted by Liz and shown to our room, or should I say suite. Wonderful bed, so comfy, beautiful covers and curtains , all in keeping with the surroundings, enormous bathroom and I could barely touch the shower screen sides, all so shiny and polished. Beuatiful smelling natural cleansing products, even bubble bath. Fluffy bath robes, good sized T.V. A fridge with half a pint of milk, tea, instant coffee, ground coffee, herbal teas and of course, homemeade scottish shortbread.
Slept very well and were greeted at breakfast with numerous choices of breakfast, full scottish and the scrambled egg with smoked salmon was to die for. Juices, coffee, tea, hot and cold milk, honey, jam, marmalade, three different types of bread/toast, you cannot miss the soda bread with plenty of butter. Nothing was too much trouble, we had the use of beatiful living rooms with beautiful views. A place not to miss if you visit this beautiful area.

Sandown House was a fantastic find on the internet. Liz couldn't do enough for her guests and the accomodation itself was the best we've EVER stayed in. The beds were so comfy and the rooms huge. Attention to detail was excellent, from the fresh milk in the fridge, to the wonderful toiletries in the bathroom (which I've now gone online and ordered for my home). Liz's homemade soda bread and jams were simply delicious.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Scotland and had the joy of staying at Sandown House. The rooms were brand new and wonderfully modern. My husband is 6'7" and finding shower to accommodate his size was a challenge. The huge walk-in shower was a delight to say the least. The bad was very comfortable (the best one we had on the trip). Liz was so nice and went out of her way to make sure we had anything we needed. After a particularly difficult day driving in Inverness, Liz brought us a bottle of wine to enjoy on our patio and relax.

The B&B is located down a quiet road and is close to the beach. Liz suggested we walk down to the beach to watch the sunset over the water. She mentioned that you would sometimes see dolphins out in the cove. Unfortunately we didn't get lucky enough to see any, but it was probably the most romantic evening we had. It was a wonderful view and a peaceful environment.

I would definitely recommend Sandown House and Nairn is a great place to visit.
