The owners Elaine and John were the kindest couple and looked after me very well. They treated me like family and it was just lovely. The room was small, clean and well appointed. The bathroom was across the hall, but was mine completely. No WIFI available, but they allow visitors to use their personal desktop to check emails and whatnot. It is back in the woods 2 1/2 miles from the town of Ft. Augusta, but just call John and he will guide you to the B & B and then you will see that it is all right turns to town and all lefts back home. Just when you think you are lost, keep going and you will find it.
Where to begin? I already miss "my" room at Mavisburn... Elaine and her husband John truely are good people, careful, nice, they helped me to continue my journey over Scotland too... The room was tiny and confortable(no need for a bigger one if you're on your own I believe, I felt great there.), the reception was great too, so were the breakfasts... Eating with the sun rising up on the Highlands just in front of you... what else could I expect?! Well, I enjoyed these two nights and days in Mavisburn b&b, Walkers, just go there, you won't regret it!!! To be honest? Nothing!!!!!
Pleasant owners, good welcome, extremely clean, comfortable and tidy. Breakfast very good. Other guests were friendly too. I have no complaints at all.
Elaine and John were really great and made us feel really welcome in their home. We had a very peaceful rested sleep in comfort and the breakfast was delicious. The B and B is very remote but if you are city dwellers like us looking for a quiet getaway then it's great. Elaine went out of her way to help us! I would recommend this place to anyone.
The owners were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and cosy and breakfast was nice too. There was no table for the single room occupant at breakfast. I had to join three strangers at breakfast. Not a biggie but still... Also I could not pay with visa, so I had to drive 3 miles to town to find a cash machine.
The price is about the best in town, but if you are looking for a hotel style b&b, this is not it. This feels more like staying with relatives. The owner is a very nice older woman, and she makes a good breakfast for you. The ensuite bathroom wasn't really ensuite, we had our own bathroom, but you had to go into the hall to use it, so you would need to get dressed to use it at night, etc.
It's the best B&B I've stayed in. Room very comfortable, warm & clean, lovely bathroom (+ soap, shower gel, shampoo etc), kettle + drinks stuff + an outstanding location. The landlady (Carol) was a great personality + we didn't feel like anything was a chore for her. She was great - we recommend it very highly.
Its situation near the canal. The friendness of the personal.
Carol and Mark were extremely welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. The berakfast was excellent. I would both recommend this B & B and will probably revisit.
Carol is great and so friendly, the room was lovely as was the scenery
Very nice people, warm welcome and great attention to our entire group.
Location, brilliant starting point to see the great glen and Carol the owner she made us feel very welcome.
Extremely friendly staff, quiet but central location, and a very good breakfast!!
Our lovely host.
The friendliness of the owner and the qualityof the room and the breakfast
very friendly staff . nice comfortable amenities, easy to find and well located for resturants and pubs
Warm welcome, small but clean room, the best haggis in Scotland according to Sarah. The taste was good, but knowing what it is made of, this is a 'once in a lifetime experience' for me. The shower had a thermostat that didn't function very well. The watertemperature constantly changed from cold to dangerously hot. When I complained about it, Sarah told me that I should have read the manual in the room. Well, I was in the shower and not in the room, wasn't I? The fact that it is a bit odd in the first place to have to read a manual to take a shower didn't bother her at all. When I suggested that she'd hang up an instruction in the bathroom or at least warn the guests, she didn't agree. It was all my fault not reading the manual and of the changing waterpressure. The fact that bothered me the most is that she didn't even say sorry.
The owner was very hospitable, especially in finding us a place to eat upon our late arrival (which was excellent). The breakfast options were good. The b&b was perfectly situated. There were plenty of restaurants nearby and it was close to all of the main attractions in the area. The bed wasn't very good. It was too soft and we both were a bit sore the next day.
Lovely situation Helpful staff very clean Excellent breakfast Room quite small Fairly isolated...had towalk about half a mile to nearest pubs etc.
Location, the good packed lunches, nice people Not really a drying room
A great experience, we were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived, and Sarah the owner is friendly and helpful without ever being intrusive. I would recommend it to anyone. The location is great too, slightly away from the village centre but still handy for meals and shops, and with access to some nice walks and facilities such as pony-trekking, horse-riding and bicycle hire.
Fantastic location, not too far from woodland walks or places to eat. The set out was nice. The breakfast was very good.
The staff (Sarah) was extremely welcoming and warm.
Clean sufficient . is very difficult to find it with the nav-sat . The room is so much little . In the night you will hear wen the guest of the next room go in the bathroom ...The only hotel in all GB that pretend the payment cash !!!
We stayed here for 3 nights whilst exploring Loch Ness and the surrounding area. The b&b is situated about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Drumnadrochit where you will find restaurants, shops, the tourist information and visitor centre. Loch Ness boat trips also start from here and Urquhart castle is a short drive away. The b&b is attached to the owner’s house, however it has a separate entrance and its own lounge/breakfast area. The breakfast was very tasty and the room spotless. The room was slightly on the small side, however this was not a problem for the amount of time we spent there.
Everything was great, the location, the room, the breakfast and especially the hospitality of our host.
