Reviewed 24 June 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our holiday around Scotland. What an absolutely excellent place to stay. Mary & Tom were so welcoming caring & friendly that we felt as though we had arrived at a relatives house. The room was a really good size with a big en-suite,it was spotless clean and had views across Loch Fleet. Night time was very peaceful & quiet and the bed was so comfortable. Breakfast was cooked to perfection and there was plenty of choice. One of the best B&Bs that we have stayed in. Well positioned just off the A9 so great location for access to the rest of the Highlands. Would not hesitate to stay here again and would reccommend to all.

We stopped at Strathview again for a night on our way to Orkney, and I have to say the high standards haven't dropped at all. We found the property looked as welcoming as we remembered, and the room was beautifully clean as before. Love the bedcovers and the big, fat pillows - a luxurious, welcoming bed is just what you want to see after a long day on a motorbike!! And even if the bedclothes aren't to your liking , the colour doesn't affect the comfort. :)
A lot of trouble is taken to make sure you get exactly what you'd like for breakfast, prepared as you want it, and it's delicious; but what really makes Strathview for us is the little things, like fresh milk and mineral water in vacuum flasks and the friendly, helpful hosts.
When I talked to Mary about how lovely we thought it all is, she said she "just tries to think of what she would like", and it really does show.
Oh, and weather permitting, do have a cup of tea sitting on the decking looking out across the loch. If there's a better way of starting a holiday than a night at Strathview, I'd love to know what it is!

We stayed at Strathview for one night on our way to Orkney. First impressions count for a lot and we thought the outside of the property could be doing with a bit of a tidy up as the steps leading to the front door were a bit dilapidated and covered in moss, which could be a real issue if they were wet and you're carrying a heavy case.

The bed was comfortable but we found the amount of bedcovers and frills on a the bed to be a bit overpowering! Our room was nicely decorated but we both thought the bathroom could be doing with a proper clean (the toilet roll holder was covered in a layer of dust which must have accumulated over a number of days/weeks).

Breakfast was very nice with lots of olde worlde charm with doilies covering most of the crystal.

Overall I would say this is a very nice reasonably priced 3 star B&B, but we felt the other 4 B&Bs and guesthouses that we stayed in over the fortnight offered nicer accommodation and the rating reflects this.

I'm sorry you were disappointed in your stay with us but I must take issue with your complaints, Firstly there is not now nor has there ever been moss growing on our front steps, we did have 3 nights and 2 days of very high winds and I did notice that moss had been torn from our neighbour's roof and was blowing across the front of our house but there wasn't much we could do about the wind.

Secondly the bedclothes I'm afraid it's a case of "horses for courses" it's all down to personal taste.

Thirdly I can assure you the bathrooms are thoroughly cleaned between each let and do not go days and most certainly not weeks without cleaning, again we had had very high winds and dust storms but I had dusted again before you arrived.

The "lace doilies" which you claim cover most of the crystal in the dining room are in fact beaded lace food covers which I bought from Lakeland, there are in fact two of them, one covers the cereal bowls on the small buffet trolley and the other covers the sugar bowl. As you would see as I drew your attention to at breakfast the cereal is self serve so the bowls and the sugar bowl are on open display, I have a real horror of flies crawling on plates or food therefor I cover them.

Once again I can only apologise for disappointing you.

This bed and breakfast was a perfect night stop for me. Situated just off the main road between Dornoch and Golspie, it was clean, very comfortable and nicely decorated. A great home from home.
Although not within walking distance of a village, it was only a 5 minute drive to Dornoch where there are a selection of restaurants and a pub.

We stayed at Strathview for one night before attending a wedding in Dornoch the next day.
We arrived late evening and owners were kind enough to arrange transport into Dornoch (approx 4 miles away) to meet friends, as taxis are not readily available in the area.
Our room was spacious but cosy with a decent sized en-suite and patio doors out onto decking with fantastic views of Dornoch Bay. Breakfast was provided at a time to suit us and cooked fresh to order.
The owners were also kind enough to delay out check-out time which allowed us to get ready for the wedding we were goin to.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Strathview and would recommend anyway. Many thanks!

My partner and I stayed at this B&B recently and it was better than a 5 star hotel. The room was huge and beautifully decorated and designed. The bathroom was also huge. Tom and Mary were two of the nicest people we had met on our trip around the Scottish Highlands. They couldn't do enough for you. They were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was amazing. Also they went the extra mile to help us when our car ran out of petrol at the bottom of their drive, even though Tom didn't drive a petrol car, he miraculously came up with some petrol so we could drive to the nearest petrol station. Now that is service. I would highly recommend this guest house.
