Reviewed August 28, 2012

This was definately the best of the four places that we stayed on our trip to Scotland and the Orkneys. Unbelievably, it was also the cheapest! We couldn't fault the welcome, the accommodation or the breakfast. Thankyou, Ray and Ian.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms. The twin has a double and a single bed and is very spacious and well desig...

Fantastic value for money compared to some large chain hotels! Spacious room with large en suite, comfortable chairs, tea and coffee making facilities, tv and comfortable bed. Our hosts, Ray and Ian were very welcoming and friendly. The house and large garden were immaculate and there were beautiful views looking over farmland and the sea.

Stayed at Ross Villa for one night during our motorbike tour of Scotland, to say that this Bed and Breakfast was the simply best is no understatement.
The house and garden are absolutely immaculate, the beds very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. We also had a safe place to park the bike.
The hosts Ian and Rae were very friendly and made us feel very welcome.
Of all the places we stayed on our trip this one stood out for value for money for such excellent surroundings and service. We paid £55 for a very large room which had a double and a single bed and included breakfast.
If you are considering touring up the east side of Scotland to John o' groats this would make an excellent stop over as it is approximately 90 miles to John o' groats.
Tain is quite a small town and we didn't see any pubs as we wandered around. We went to the Shandwick Inn which is on the A9 about four to five miles before you get to Tain and we had a lovely meal here, the portions are not for the faint hearted but if you can save some room for the more than ample deserts as my husband assures me that they are excellent.
If you are travelling in this vacinity you will not find better accomodation.

This was an excellent place to stop. Very well appointed and exceptionally clean. The rooms were very comfortable. The shower is legendary, warm and powerful which is quite a novelty for a B&B I have found!
Tain has limited restaurants but what there is a sufficient. Ross Villa is tucked away off the main road so it is very quiet and safe for parking, bikes in our case, but a 5 min walk to the town centre.
Overall, thoroughly recommended as it is superb quality and very reasonably priced.

Wonderful bed and breakfast in a beautiful house within lovely garden grounds. Ray and Ian are very welcoming and friendly hosts, and we would definitely have no hesitation in going back again ourselves or recommending it to friends.

Ray and Ian made us so welcome - they are fabulous hosts and their home is fantastic (If only I could have a gorgeous home like they have). First class quality beds and bathrooms, breakfast is superb, the whole experience is 5 star+. We've been back two years running and we hope to return again this year in the autumn.

Room Tip: None - all rooms are fantastic.
