The little door front of Sule Skerry is just the gateway to a big welcome and a lovely place to stay. The room and amenities are clean, comfortable and homely with the added extra of a good pouring teapot for a nice cup of tea. The substantial continental breakfast was brought to the room at our choice of time and was thoroughly enjoyed. Being right on the main street of Dornoch it was a good venue for the area and I would recommend you try it for yourself. My only recomendation is that you change the breakfast bowls and plates. Thank you Kate and Terry for a lovely stay.

Beautiful clean accommodation with great en-suite shower. Very friendly landlord and lady who went out of their way to be helpful and informative about the area. Decoration really interesting with historical photos and samplers on display all round the establishment. Wonderfully comfortable beds and lovely continental breakfast with soy milk offered on hearing that my friend is vegan. I would highly recommend this B&B

Room Tip: Choose the twin room for more space in which to have your breakfast

Service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble. Very warm and friendly. Although no official car parking always managed to park opposite for free. No tv in room but use of a lounge with a range of DVDs and books. We used this as a central point to tour the northern highlands, with easy access to major roads. Village was quiet and nice but provided all our needs. Lots of wildlife nearby. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place

Kate and Terry were very welcoming and happy to chat about suitable locations for an evening meal. The bedrooms were roomy and clean and we had a good night's sleep. There was also no problem parking on the road outside.

Be warned meat and coffee lovers - they serve a continental breakfast, with a single portion of coffee each. To be fair, their details do make this clear (it was our fault - we should have read them!)

Room Tip: The twin is a little larger than the double but both are a good size

Try as I might I cannot find a way to praise this B&B. We found it very disappointing and pricey for what you get. The location is good, but it did not feel loved or welcoming in the way that other Dornoch B&Bs do (and we have stayed in plenty). To be fair on the owners, they had not been long in the business so were on a learning curve. Maybe it is better this season.

We value feedback from all our visitors who we are honoured to meet on an individual basis. As we have no record of your stay in Sule Skerry last September, it is difficult for us to redress your issues now some 8 months later.

2011 was our first year in Sule Skerry as a Bed and Breakfast, but drawing on our past hospitality experience we were very pleased to receive many unsolicited compliments about the house and the service. And we are especially delighted to receive repeat booking this year from very satisfied previous customers .

The room was very comfortable - the en-suite very well appointed and immaculate!

Kate & Terry couldnt have been more helpful and gave good advice on the dining options in the village

Dont expect a cooked breakfast - they serve a very large, healthy continental breakfast in your room

Not ideal for guests with impaired mobility as rooms are up steep stairs
