I stayed at Sydney House for one night on my cycle ride but wish I could have stayed longer. Cromarty is a fantastic place and Sydney House is a beautifully maintained old Cromarty house. My room overlooked the street, which was incredibly quiet, I don't remember any traffic at all that night. There were working shutters on the windows. It... More

It is well worth a trip to the end of The Black Isle. Sydney house was a... More

We stayed at Sydney House for a night whilst walking around the Black Isle, and really enjoyed it. We had a room at the back of the house, overlooking the garden, which was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely.

We stayed at Sydney House for three nights, and we were delighted with the quality of accommodation, the service received and Cromarty in general. Our hosts were hospitable, helpful and friendly, even providing toys for our 4 year old to play with. The breakfasts are first-rate too.

Cromarty isn't overflowing with accommodation, and The Sydney Guest House is just what's needed - reasonably priced, centrally located and with a pleasant host. Also welcome is a breakfast period extending to 9am.
