“A Scottish home from home”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

lA good all round bed and breakfast. Rooms clean, bathroom spotless, comfortable bed and quiet nights sleep. Owners friendly and helpful. Breakfast very generous. I would recommend it to anyone. One recommendation, install a grab rail on the wall under the shower for older guests.

Room Tip: We had room 2. Excellent

If in doubt, book this. It is a friendly home from home style place whose exterior belies a gem of a b&b. This was our last stop over on the way to John O'Groats. After using the mainly Travelodges all the way through GB, Kindale seemed very luxurious, and welcoming. Cannot recommend the welcome accommodation and food highly enough.

Room Tip: Search online and this appears to be the only place in Helmsdale. There are others but Kindale is fa...

What a lovely place to stay. The room was big, well equipped, comfortable and clean. The excellent power shower followed by the perfect breakfast set me up for the day. Really helpful B&B owner. Fully recommended.

Brilliant B and B good size room, large double bed, lovely breakfast and we were very well looked after by the owner Sharon. The place is very clean and it is so quiet. We had a brilliant nights sleep! Both my husband and I loved this place and hope to visit Helmsdale again in the future.

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the fantastic countryside very much. B&B was ok, but nothing special. Shower was big and everything was spotless. However, the matress of the master bed was very uncomfortable.

We booked our stay at Kindale House in Helmsdale on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews. We stayed for three nights in Room #2 - which is the one you see in the photos shown on this website. We did peek into the two other rooms when they were unoccupied. The rooms are large as compared to other B&Bs we have stayed in. King-size beds! Very comfortable. Very quiet. Bathroom has a bathtub and shower.
The B&B is in the centre of the village; the front door is directly on the street. There is a small back garden which you can see during breakfast.
The stairs to the second floor have a couple of corners which are a little tight when you have a large suitcase on your hands.
Sharon takes your breakfast orders the evening before and sets tables accordingly in the dining room which is a airy, bright conservatory at the back of the house. This room is not large and a couple of people can be a little squished -- but not a real problem. The breakfasts were excellent -- good food, good variety of choice, well-prepared and very nicely presented. Tommy had been out fishing and had caught some mackerel so that was also added to the menu while we were there.There is Wi-Fi but you may have to sit on the stairs to get decent reception.
We really enjoyed our stay and we do highly recommend this B&B to others.
