We stayed as guests of Donald and Cathy back in January (17th-19th) in the Premier Suite. Our welcome was extremely warm, and we straightaway felt that we were among friends. The accommodation is excellent, with great attention to detail, and comforts of in-room port & chocolates, and a well appointed kitchenette to share with other guests.
Breakfasts are excellent at Sutherland House! Home-made muffins are delicious, and when we had to depart early on our final morning (to catch the Northern Explorer) Donald parcelled some up for us, along with some fruit and cookies, to tuck into. Bliss!
More than anything, we remember the easy conversations we enjoyed with Donald and Cathy on a range of topics. As mentioned elsewhere, they are well travelled, and have used their experiences extremely well in creating this excellent B&B.
