“a very scottish hospitality”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

This is a well decorated, clean, lovely B&B with an excellent breakfast.

It failed in getting 5 stars from me, due to google maps sending me to a completely different B&B, so it would be very helpful if Trip advisor was not the only place the postcode is mentioned.
They were also rather abrupt with us in the morning, as it was apparently our fault that they did not mention that they do not take credit card payment (i have double checked my email, and this was not mentioned at all).
Toiletries were not provided in the bathroom, tea and coffee not provided in rooms.

If you are aware of these minor niggles before arriving, I would still recommend it as a place to stay, as it very well appointed and in a lovely wee village (the Kimberly pub does excellent food!!)

Room Tip: all rooms were excellent, very well decorated and clean.

A really excellent place to stay,very clean,comfortable,lovely breakfast.The owners are very friendly and welcoming.The dining area is in the extension which Eric the co-owner helped to build.
Tea and coffee is in the dining area and we could help ourselves at anytime.

first time in findhorn and was not disappointed and to end up staying in yellowsands was such a blessing.

the breakfast was excellent and in abundance, the room was exceptional with ensuite, and the owners first class so much so my daughter and i felt like family.

very attentive but unobtrusive and we going back again and booked up.

Room Tip: all rooms are excellent

Another great find. While travelling our way around Scotland and visiting the Findhorn Foundation, we stayed at Yellow Sands. It was everything that we had hoped for. Spotlessly clean and comfortable, charming host and delicious breakfast. The location is great. Not al the bedrooms are en-suite, but it worked .

impeccably clean, modern with every convenience in a beautiful setting, welcoming, discrete hosts who made our very first stay at a B&B a delight to be repeated.

Reviewed 7 August 2009

We had been guided to this little town by the person at Spynie Palace. He was very chatty and interesting and knew a lot of the Palace, history and the area in general. He recommended Findhorn, and we were lucky to get a room at Yellow Sands only because of a last-minute cancellation.
What a treat it is. The house and rooms are beautiful. The gentleman who runs it (at least we just encountered the man) had been in the hotel business for something like 17 years, so he said that he knew exactly what he wanted when he came to renovate the property to have a B & B. That would explain how the room set-up and the design of the property makes it all work so well.
The rooms were spacious, immaculate, nicely furnished, the bathroom was large (we had an en-suite) and the breakfast was fabulous.
We wished we could have stayed longer.
