Just read some other reviews and can not understand what went wrong. Part of the charm of staying in a B&B is being welcomed into someone's home. Instead when we arrived there was a note telling us to call someone else. Thankfully we are English speaking otherwise this would have been very difficult. We do understand that sometimes owners might...

Wow, don't know what to say to this one, but I'm sure any future guests will read through this by taking an over all view of all reviews! Some truth in what has been said, but we are just humans and we can make mistakes, plus we also have lives so sometimes we are not here to check you in,...

After arriving earlier than we had previously said, Lisa was very accommodating and getting our room sorted was no issue! Room was clean and tidy with suitable facilities and everything we needed. The food provided for breakfast was delicious and the service was very helpful. The location was quiet, however, not far from several restaurants (with a free shuttle bus...

Stayed here for a night on our Scotland road-trip. Convenient location for the Loch Ness Exhibition and Urquhart castle, plus other attractions. We stayed in the annexe, not the main house, which was very clean and well-appointed. Bed was comfortable, all the amenities were present and the breakfast was good, although my wife would have liked some fresh fruit. The...

Our stay at Woodlands was great. We were at Room Mull, perfectly spacious for two people, with its own toilet and shower. The bed was comfy and bedding very soft. The room came with an extra blanket, electric heater, hairdryer and a set of basic toiletries as well as towels. Extra cookies were a nice touch. Breakfast was lovely and...

The woodlands guest house was perfect. The owner was very welcoming. The room was lovely and clean. The breakfast was fantastic having tried the English and continental breakfast. It is the perfect place for a base to see the highlands and beyond. Thanks to Rory and Lisa 👍

Booked months ago to attend a family wedding without knowing anything about the guest house other than it meeting specific criteria such as "en suite, wi-if, parking, etc". It was a really good choice, clean, and comfortable in lovely, well-maintained surroundings. My only niggle, preventing an "excellent" rating, was separate hot and cold taps at the wash-basin.
