If you are looking for the most fabulous Highland hospitality , a fabulous bed and breakfast with modern large rooms then this is the place for you. Perfectly located for our golf trip to Nairn , Andy and Liz (let us not forget Babs) were sensational hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were gorgeous (black pudding from Stornaway) and set us up for our day ahead. I could not recommend Sandown House more highly.

I stayed at Sandown House for 2 nights with my 19 year old daughter and elderly parents and we were all in awe at the incredibly high standards of everything at Sandown House - we couldn't fault a thing. Liz and Andy are so friendly and welcoming and they cannot do enough for you. They are masters of the trade and obviously love what they do which makes for an exceptional guest experience. The wonderfully spacious rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished to the highest of standards and everything is spotlessly clean. We really appreciated the thoughtful little touches like homemade shortbread and fresh milk along with a selection of teas, coffees and hot chocolate; the fresh flowers at breakfast and real orchids in the rooms; the Highland Soap Company toiletries; the heated bathroom mirror; a card for my mum and dad's anniversary; the sausage bap each morning for my daughter; the outdoor seating areas, including the swing; the paintings and pictures of local scenery. Breakfast was fantastic! A huge choice, all freshly cooked to order and served piping hot. You do not go out of there hungry!! A lovely, peaceful environment to start the day with relaxing music playing a and a chat with Liz while watching Andy in the kitchen doing the cooking. They make it all look effortless. Everything at Sandown House lives up to the 5 star status. It's incredibly difficult to get those 5 stars and keep them but they are well deserved. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandown House and look forward to our next visit (hopefully soon). Thanks again Liz and Andy. Xx

We, four Canadians, recently made a trip to Golf's mecca in Scotland and were fortunate enough to have been booked for four nights at the Sandown House. The accommodations were first class and would equal any 4/5 star hotel. They rooms were spacious and well appointed. What made it special was the host, Liz. The breakfasts offered were delicious. Liz also gave us helpful info on local activities and dining choices. Do yourself a favour and stay here!!

This is the best B&B I have encountered in the British Isles. First class, spacious, spotless well equipped room with huge comfortable bed and luxurious bathroom. You can see why it has a Scottish Tourist Board 5 star rating. My wife and I booked for a couple of nights away in Nairn with our dog, and Liz couldn’t have done more for us. Very welcoming and great comms from the off, was able to make recommendations for dog friendly restaurants, which were spot on. Breakfast, which is included, is all cooked fresh to order and is exemplar in terms of choice, quality and preparation. Perfect full Scottish with perfect poached eggs (plural - not that one egg nonsense) and amazing traditional porridge served with cream and a dash of single malt if you fancy it! There were a host of other choices available to suit any dietary requirements. My wife had the vegan breakfast which was delicious too. Perfectly located 7 mins walk from beach for a walk along into town, and the view of the night sky from the garden is outstanding. Couldn’t recommend this B&B highly enough, we will most definitely be back. Thank you.

We had an extremely well thought out, spotless large room in the Courtyard, with a very comfortable bed and spacious en suite. The breakfast choice was brilliant and was freshly cooked for us. Liz, our host, was so helpful and welcoming, and her local recommendations for dinner were spot on. Lots to see and do in the area for all tastes. Our walk from the Bow Fiddle Rock at Portknockie to Cullen Bay (something we had wanted to do for ages) was a highlight, with an ice cream in Cullen a close second. Many thanks for everything Liz !

Spotless, spacious, well-furnished rooms. Beautiful location on the outskirts of Nairn - 5-10 minute walk to the seafront. Owner very pleasant and couldn't be more helpful. Incredible breakfast, in terms of both variety and quality. We'll definitely be back.

Wow what an amazing room and bathroom. Big bed and a separate sofa area. Bathroom with an amazing walk in shower and the bath looked great although no time to use it. Owners really helpful, and ensured our last minute gluten free request was accommodated for breakfast. Lots of options for breakfast which is great for fussy eaters. Location is amazing with a short walk to a lovely beach. Our dog was very welcome and she enjoyed her stay also. If arriving in a large vehicle, may be worth letting them know in advance to ensure parking is ok for everyone. Thanks for our amazing stay!

We've just returned from a 4-night family stay at Sandown House, and can honestly say it is the best B&B we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Beautifully furnished, luxurious rooms, spotlessly clean, every detail fully thought out. Liz and her team are just the kindest, loveliest, most thoughtful and welcoming hosts, and the breakfasts are magnificent, with every possible taste catered for, and clearly no expense spared on quality ingredients. Everything exceeded our expectations, and when you add this to the spectacular surroundings and close proximity to so many beautiful beaches and walks, it all added up to a completely fabulous, memorable trip, which we will definitely be revisiting.
