“Best B&B ever”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

This is the best B&B I have ever stayed in. Kate made us very welcome and there was everything in the room that you could ask for. The continental breakfast served in our room was a delight. If you are thinking about staying in Dornoch make the Sule Skerry your first choice you won't be disappointed

I have stayed in 5-star hotels with less attention to detail than this lovely B&B. From the booking onwards, Kate made me feel welcome and at ease by being friendly but not intrusive. Had my own key so didn't feel worried about waking the house up, which was important as I was attending a wedding. Very substantial continental breakfast served in the room, after an unusually great sleep in the comfortable bed. The room was very spacious and scrupulously clean, with a modern bathroom and nice big shower unit. The little extras included notepaper, sewing kit, tea tray with biccies, to be enjoyed at the coffee table and sofa. Also great location, just as you come into Dornoch, with free parking directly opposite the guest house. Really fantastic experience!

Extremely warm welcome. Perfect location, handy for all that Dornoch had to offer. Bedroom and en suite were spotless and beautifully decorated. Continental breakfast was wonderful and did not leave us hungry. Would absolutely visit Sule Skerry Homestay B&B again and cannot recommend it enough.

Very warm and professional welcome. Full of character. Kate was so helpful particularly as this was a very late booking due to a oversight on my part. Provided a really healthy breakfast. Would recommend Sule Skerry to others visiting Dornoch.

We were doing a week's exploration of Scotland, having fallen in love with it on a previous trip, and en route to Dunrobin Castle, which we had read about, we just liked the look of Dornoch and its main street, spied Kate outside her B&B and spent a night there. A lovely comfortable room and bathroom with nothing missing - met all our needs. I had mental reservations about breakfast in our room, but it was a delight: orange juice, a generous bowl of fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals, rolls, croissants, toast and tea; we were set up for the day! All served on lovely embroidered linens. An absolutely first-class B&B that I would recommend to anyone. Dornoch itself is lovely: a beautiful cathedral, still open at 8pm, classy shopping at the Jail, a lovely walk above the beach and along the golf course and a row of charming cottages in a small lane on your way to the beach - a legacy from the refugees of the Clearances and great subject to photograph. Loved our stay - Wendy and Lionel Erasmus, Kloof, KZN, South Africa.

B&B of kate(=Sule Skerry Homestay B&B) is very kind, is polite, and is full of the feeling of a reception.
It is a host family's smiling face especially to like to appreciate.
Moreover, the room is decorated and refined with Ms. Kate's hobby, and is a lovely room.
Although it stayed at two bedrooms, consideration of those who stay, such as making the towel into different colors, respectively, had an exceptional thing.
Moreover, although the town itself called Dornoch was carried out in a small way, it could be very beautiful, and a delicious meal and delicious alcohol could be substantial, and it was able to spend very pleasant time.

I can follow to you anyhow this B&B that was full of the feeling gentle to by all means.

We stayed three nights and were most comfortable. Kate was a delightful hostess and could not have been kinder as we arrived without a car and she took it upon herself to make sure we saw some of the best sights...breakfast was brought to our room, the beds were comfy and Sule Skerry is in a great location to walk everywhere in town, to the golf course and the beach. And Pippin, the resident King Charles Spaniel, was available for kisses.

Room Tip: The twin bedded room seems to be a bit larger than the king bedded room. FYI There is no fitness ce...
