To describe itself as a guest house is a bit of a misnomer. Check-in was a key in an envelope on an unmanned desk and breakfast is in the fridge in your room. One of the joys of Guest Houses for me is the interaction with the owners and other guests and this was completely absent.

The room itself was a good size and the bed was very comfortable, however the bathroom was in a very poor state of decoration and barely acceptable.

The location is very good and there is plenty of free parking nearby.

Perhaps if the Guest House part of the name was dropped my expectations would have been different, but on this occasion I just felt a little let down.

On the upside I may consider staying here again now I know what to expect, but only if the price is sufficiently competitive.

We stayed at the Thorlee for 3 nights, and whilst the room was a really good size, it was in real need of decoration. There was a towel on the bathroom windowsill, as the window leaked, and the paintwork and flooring were marked and in need of a proper refresh. We hardly saw the host, just a cursory discussion when we arrived, as he was overseeing some maintenance in the room next door, otherwise our welcome was a key in an envelope on an unmanned front desk! Breakfast was just a packaged roll, muffin and cereal packet in the fridge in your room. On the positive side, it is a really central location, and there is plenty of free parking opposite the guest house.

Have stayed in the Thorlee on many occasions but it just gets better and better. Kenny has put an immense effort into turning the place into the excellent accommodation it now is - all rooms are first class - well furnished and maintained. It has everything you need for a business trip. No hesitation in recommending the Thorlee.

Room Tip: All rooms are very comfortable and well appointed

This guest house is perfect for short or long stay, everything you need on your room, fully stocked mini fridge with cereals, milk, juice, cheese, rolls, etc, iPod docking station, flat screen tv and comfortable beds. Very clean, warm and worth every penny.

We spent two nights recently at Thorlee Guest House and it was perfect for all our needs. The location was ideal, right by the harbour and free parking! Dog friendly, which was great, and we soon found some really good walks for the dog in the grounds of Lews Castle, and further up Bayhead through The Arch - follow the stream along the edge of the golf course - brilliant! A real bonus. We were up on the top floor, very spacious room, comfortable king size bed, window open at night and NO noise!! Plus a lovely shower room. The rooms are serviced which means continental breakfast goodies in the fridge, and some fruit in the room too. This suited us as we are not into cooked breakfasts every day, plus we had to be up very early the last morning to catch the ferry. The wee bottles of wine on our first night were very welcome too! Will definitely be back at some stage Coinneach. Thank you. Robert and Penny F.
