    breakfast was fine.

    location was hopeless, too far from anywhere, i felt uncomfortable stuck in a room in someones bungalow.

    This is an interesting B&B with a very pleasant hostess and a nice atmosphere. The breakfast was good with fresh eggs laid that morning from the hens in the garden.

    The room we had was small and the en suite shower room was very bijou indeed. Although interesting the decor was cluttered and this left little room for our things. While there was large cupboard, there wasn't much space to have things to hand. The house itself is a rather dull bungalow on the edge of a field and not really near anywhere.

    Everything was spotless and the food was excellent. Great attention to detail. It was different from your usual B&B, interesting, charming and the antics of the hens, chickens, ducks, cats and dogs in the back garden were very entertaining.

    Warm Scottish hospitality. Beautifully decorated and comfortable rooms. Delicious gourmet breakfast. Convenient location.

    Twisted Willows was perfect for what we wanted: a one-night stopover on the way to somewhere else - and Carol is aiming at exactly that. Tain is nice enough though hardly a major attraction - but we loved breaking our long, long drive in this immaculate home, and being half-an hour closer to our destination the next day than if we had stayed in Inverness. Carol was warm and welcoming, the room was delightful, the bed comfortable, the decor off-beat and attractive - and breakfast was brillliant. On a week's trip we went to many places (the North Highland Coastal route, Lewis, Harris, Skye) with more to offer than Tain itself - but this brief night and breakfast were still the best of our whole trip! Peter & Geraldine

    Nothing at all.

    'Small but perfectly formed', the house and room had lots of interesting and attractive decor and was spotless with really comfy bed and pillows. The owner gave a warm welcome and the breakfast choices were both unusual and extremely delicious.

    I cannot pick anything in particular that I REALLY liked, but then, there was nothing that I REALLY disliked. The Owners were helpful although I sensed there would be a strict limit to the amount of help that would be provided. The location was quiet, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower was hot. Breakfast was hot and the servings were a good size.

    I felt the house decor was a bit "over the top", but maybe it would suit many people's taste? The bedroom felt cluttered. It did not allow sufficient space for a large suitcase to be laid on the floor and opened. Having written that, a walk-in wardrobe was provided and the suitcase could be opened in there, so a solution was to hand. However, my point is, the bedroom, in my opinion, had too much furniture and too many "decorative accessories", such as a couple of vintage hat cases that occupied valuable floor space. The bathroom was small/very small but modern. Most of the space was taken up by the shower (which was a good size), but a large indoor lily plant was strategically positioned beneath the triangular wash basin and one's knees collided with it when using the wc. It was a small/very small bathroom! But everything worked.
