“An exceptional stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Mey House is a quite exceptional experience, and very highly recommended. The warmth of the welcome by Robert and Sally Ann, the quality and comfort of the rooms, the gourmet breakfast, the sumptuous bathroom, the most comfortable bed and pillows I have experienced in many years of travelling... I could go on and on. Thank you so much for everything.

Easily the best B&B we have stayed at in this price bracket. £80 for the room including breakfast is an absolute steal. It is obvious the owners put quality first which is evidenced as soon as you enter with the daringly light coloured carpet as opposed to the dark patterned carpets used by so many to hide the dirt etc. Our room was very spacious and had its own nespresso machine plus pods, all the toiletries were by the Highland Soap Company. Watching the sunset through the large room windows from our bed was very special. Breakfast was to a high standard and cooked to order. Based on our experience I would be astounded to read any poor reviews of the fantastic Mey House.

Thank you so much for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us; the sunsets across the ocean are something special aren't they? We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and perhaps we will see you again when Orkney draws you back!

Well perfection is not often attained but it certainly is very close at Mey House. Greeted as old friends by owners, and made extremely welcome. The rooms are magnificent with all the additions to make your stay top notch. Views from the rooms over the castle of Mey and Orkney were superb and if the mist had stayed away would have been even better! Breakfast was also five star beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. Definately a return in the future will be on the cards ! Worth mentioning is the visit to the Castle of Mey, well worth an afternoon's visit, the gardens are worth it also. Finally an evening meal at the Castle Arms Hotel in Mey was delicious, fresh fish and the cheese cake was superb too.
Looking forward to another visit too, thanks again Sally Ann and Robert.

Room Tip: Don't miss this superb b & b. Each room is fantastic and should NOT be missed.

From the moment we arrived we were greeted as good friends. Sally Ann & Robert are perfect hosts, very helpful with our luggage and this house is perfect.

The veiw from our Castle Suite is amazing, I sat and watched the sunsets over the sea, the light now in May is perfect. The suite has a huge comfortable bed, large spacious bedroom and what a huge lovely bathroom & shower. The breakasts are very tasty and Im sure the dinners planned in 2015 will be much enjoyed.

The price paid is exceptional value for the luxury here, other B & Bs charge the same for so little...
Wifi perfect. Big TV to enjoy.
We had a special treat, Mr & Mrs Cakes made for us to eat, very thoughful. I also loved the cookies.

The information on the web site is second to none and the information packs are well planned in the room, This couple have thought of everything. You have to come here too!

Ps we had a meal at Seaview in John O Groats, great value and very tasty food (must go back)

The location of Mey House is easy to find and a perfect base to explore this area. Its very quiet too, great for relaxing while observing the view.

10/10. Love to come back again, so pleased we choosed here, before we continue on our tour of the Highlands.
Thank you
Colin & Ev Shaul

Room Tip: We loved the Castle Suite, Im sure the other two(one more in 2015 coming) will be perfect too.

I have just returned from my holiday staying at Mey House. I was blown away by the beautiful scenery. I visited so many stunning places including Mey Castle and John O Groats.
My bedroom was luxourious and the scenery from my bedroom window was breath taking.
Robert and Sally Ann were the perfect hosts, they made my stay a memorable one.
The food was so delicious and the choice of breakfast on the menu was superb.
I had never been to Scotland before but i will definately be returning to Mey House.

We recently had the privilege of 'test driving' Mey House prior to it being open to the public.
We were extremely impressed by the luxurious feeling of the property and the amenities. The rooms are spacious and more like a boutique hotel, with beautiful bathrooms and lovely added extras such as the Smart TV and bluetooth sound system and Nespresso coffee machine in each room and wide selection of teas. I had 3 of the best nights' sleep I've had in a long while.
Mey House is in a beautiful setting with fabulous views to the Orkneys, Dunnet Head and Castle Mey - interrupted only by fields of sheep! These views are fabulous from the rooms and from the breakfast room with it's picture windows.
Sally-Ann and Robert are excellent hosts - and we can't recommend Mey House highly enough.
