    It was out first visit to Howic and we had an amazing time. Biggy Best was welcoming and place was more than I expected. Rooms were clean and comfortable. It was a convenient location to stay and felt at home.

    Biggy Best Cottages are the best place you can think of when you travelling, the staff is so helpful and professional, and environment is very user friendly, my favourite part is the shower. I would 100% recommend it to everybody.

    The overall service was very good, but a bit attention should be given to the finer details and cleanliness. The food however was excellent and the lady that assisted us at the restaurant an absolute pleasure.

    Breakfast took really long , over 45 min and then syrup was just added to the French toast of my 2 year old (she doesn't eat Syrup). There was no shower cap provided for the shower. We were told to pay extra for a mattress...More
