We stayed two nights at Smiddy House last week, and had a very enjoyable time. The room was rather small, but spotlessly clean and comfortable. The ensuite was immaculate, so clean! (Loved it) The food was delicious both in the evening and at breakfast, and we were so well looked after by Robert and Glen. Highly recommended.

Another fantastic meal at Russell's restaurant ! Robert and his staff (not forgetting the hard working Glen in the kitchen !) really do push the boat out to give you a fine dinning experience. The meals are exquisite and really well executed. Two of our party chose the ribeye steak, cooked perfectly as ever, as was the fillet steak. My... More

What a gem - perfection in every detail; in every room, with every meal and the location is magical! In 35 years of travel this was the best!. Take the Jacobite Steam Train in and it will be a fond memory. Do book early - there a limited rooms. Wish I could have stayed longer.

Smiddy House is one, if not, the best B&B I have stayed at. The host Robert was a great host warm and friendly. Stayed in the Bryson Suite an amazing two story two bedroom suite built behind the main building. The suite was nicely decorated, had plenty of towels, a great sitting area, a small patio. After booking a last... More

The establishment truly is a restaurant with rooms. The atmosphere is somewhat formal with low voices, soft music and lots of attention to detail. Our room was small and the tv, mounted on the ceiling, so small that we couldn't read the TV guide. The room was immaculately clean and the service first class. However, because the room was small,... More

Our room was pleasantly appointed with the fluffiest, freshest white towels...and plenty of them, and a very comfortable bed. Robert is a superb host where every detail shows care and taste. The restaurant was equally outstanding with fantastic menu choices--all of which were delicious--with lovely presentation. Kudos to chef Glen Russell.

We had read great reviews of this place and it was indeed a great place. So it lived up to our big expectations. Robert the host was kind,courteous and great help. Room was slightly small but the decor, welcome and decoration etc overcomes this. The restaurant offered amazing food and though we were vegetarians we found choices. Totally recommend this... More
