Had a very comfortable stay in the lovely West End Guest House. Warmly welcomed by Blair and Ross. Delightful bedroom, clean, good shower and a fine breakfast. I would highly recommend this B & B. Will be back!

I stayed here as I was working in the area. It was a very nice and well equipped B&B. I had a very good sleep in a comfortable bed which was then followed by a lovely breakfast. I will be sure to book it again when I am back in the area. Well done!!

New owners Ross and Blair were very friendly and accommodating. We were their first guests but you would never have known it based on the service...they seemed like pros! We had a great breakfast each morning, the room was clean and large enough for our needs. A quaint B&B within walking distance of pubs and shops. Easy access to the... More

Stayed here for 1 night, and I actually booked 1 month late by accident! But the host was VERY nice and allowed me to stay. The room was gorgeous and extremely clean, and I slept like a baby after working late. And the breakfast was immense. 100% be back. 😃😃

What a great guest house! The room which was at the front of the house was very comfortable and it made a welcome change to see a proper shower cubicle instead of a shower over a bath. Breakfast was really good and as I have a problem with Lactose, we had brought our own coconut milk which I use as... More

Myself and a friend stayed in a twin room here for one night, prior to picking up a rental car at the nearby Highland Caterham Hire to drive the NC500. The host was polite and welcoming, the room was small but in good order and very clean. The breakfast was lovely, cereals, fruit etc as well as cooked breakfast. Great... More

This was a beautiful B&B just out of the city centre. The room was a good size. I did struggle with the mattress a bit -- it seemed to slope -- and it was a twin! But beyond that no complaints other than that. Breakfast was wonderful. They were kind enough to allow us to leave our bags as we... More

Room #6 for 3 was comfortable but small; with a very small bathroom. It was clean. Very good breakfast with fresh fruits (strawberries, blueberries, etc). Morning hostess was very nice. Large private parking easy to get in and out. Welcoming person did what he had to do (including where we could have dinner) but seemed to be in a rush.... More
