    View of the bay was nice.

    Too far from bus depot and centre of town if your on foot.

    It was convenient. It was well appointed. The breakfasts were great.The owner, Jim, was more than helpful and pleasant, offering 'taxi' rides into the Town. Jim was a wealth of local knowledge and advice. It is somewhere I would be happy to recommend to others and revisit if the opportunity arises.

    There was nothing we didn't like. Jim, had no control over the weather!!

    Little extra touches that made all the difference, e.g. the offer of a flask of tea/coffee when travelling to remote spots on the islands; the willingness to pick up & deposit guests at ferry or airport; the availability of a portable breakfast on day of my very early departure & good location & beautiful views.

    Clean room and comfortable bed.

    The three external CCTV cameras, video entry phone and camera covering the dining room made the B&B feel very unwelcoming and made me think that due to its location at the edge of town it provides short term emergency accommodation to the homeless. I stayed for one night and the other people I me were all tourists. Didn't sleep well as the blind and curtain still let a lot of early morning sunlight through. Thicker or blackout curtains would be a welcolm improvement.

    Cleanliness, ease of parking on site or on road outside. Only a few minutes drive from the Ferry terminal.

    No en-suite except one room. The bathroom was really clean but it also contained the toilet so if someone was showering there was a wait. With late Ferries, guests can arrive right through the night affecting sleep. That is not a fault of the owners - just life!

    Breakfast was good. Jim was able to provide us with a take away breakfast for an early ferry departure which was a nice touch

    We had shared bathroom/toilet. It would have been better to separate the toilet from shower facility as there was only one bathroom on the first floor for the guests and it was a little tricky knowing when to use the facilities. Also with so many guests and such a small bedrom it would have been nice to have a guest lounge room available

    The room was comfortable and facilities all worked as advertised. The breakfast was excellent. The bay right outside the guest house is a lovely place on a sunny day. The owners were polite and helpful, yet also know how to keep out guests way.

    It was a 10-15 minute walk to town (which may be an issue for travellers without a car).

    The location and view over the bay. The shared bathroom was quite nice.

    The noise between one room and another was a constant disturbance. Despite there being a sink in the room, there was no facility to hang a towel or to put toiletries. A hair drier was available, however, it was not possible to plug it in close enough to be able to use the mirror. The plumbing was so noisy that you would not wish to use the sink in consideration of the people next door. Money was taken from credit card before our arrival, which was impolite. The breakfast menu suggested that there was fruit available, however, during our stay there was none available for anyone. The owner did not make any enquiry about whether we enjoyed our stay, and would, therefore, be oblivious to our concerns.

    Very friendly landlord, lovely seaside location, quiet and close to the town

    Radiator switched on full blast in the bathroom IN AUGUST!!!! What's the point of having a bath if by the time you've towelled off you are so sweaty you are back where you started???

    They went out of their way to help me - getting up at 5.30am to make me breakfast before my marathon, then giving me a lift in to town to catch bus and lift to/from airport! X

    Nothing! X

    I spent four nights at this establishment and was well pleased with my choice. As the most insightful review states, the breakfasts were excellent and the proprietor was friendly and obliging, to the extent of serving me a full breakfast at 6.45 am one morning. There was attention to little detail in that the teasmaid was always topped up and even the biscuits were on the generous side for a single occupancy. The location by the coast is also nice.

    Fantastic view of Sandwick Bay from the private balcony of my room. Nice furniture, large room. Friendly and helpful staff.

    My bathroom was across the hall. I knew this before booking, though.

    Very clean and comfortable. Excellent breakfast. The owner could not have been more friendly or helpful. Plenty of parking space, a short walk into the town centre.I would highly recommend a stay here.

    There was nothing to dislike.

    Quiet location at end of cul de sac.

    The web site is not only misleading but downright untruthful. The web site describes a large double en-suite with sea views. We booked this for 4 nights as the centrepiece of our holiday at £105 per night. On arrival we were taken to a medium size back room with views of the back yard and scrap yard beyond! We were told the room described was the proprietor’s room and not available for guests! Also the web site describes the attraction of a beautiful lounge for guests to relax in. This room is shut for guests – it is for the private use of the proprietor! The bedroom itself was extremely basic. No mirror in bedroom, one meagre picture. Pillows like bricks. Tea and coffee was NOT Fairtrade as advertised. The bathroom had no towel rail except very small radiator capable of taking a small hand towel, very small basin with no shelf nearby for toiletries. Shower cubicle was ok, but nowhere to put toiletries except on floor. The website also advertised a non-existent bath. There was no window and the extractor fan did not work. The bathroom door had not been painted since fitting. Wi-Fi did not work in room, only in hall – and probably in lounge if it were available! Every expense had been spared. We only stayed because we could not find alternative accommodation.

    very helpful staff, even provided take-away breakfast for our 6am departure.

    creaky floors upstairs, not every room has en-suite, so just check your booking so you know what to expect. We had ensuite, but our travelling companion had to share a bathroom.
