“Helensburgh revisited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

Sinclair House is en excellent place to stay. It's the the attention to detail that really makes it special and nothing is overlooked!!

Comfortable rooms and you choose the breakfast that is just right for you.

Everything is so well organised. Excellent value for money.

I wish that the bathroom was bigger because I'm a girl and have loads of stuff. How ever the hospitality was great and the owners were cool and very real! Quiet and contemporary, reasonably priced. The accommodations are above average, with suggestions of things to do locally with suggestions for dining all in all a very nice alternative to the city, much more quiet and truly romantic. Thank you for everything! ;)

I stayed two nights in May 2013 at the Sinclair House and totally enjoyed my stay. The hosts Iain and Ishbel were delightful and very helpful and the location is second to none. There were many breakfast options and breakfast was served promptly at the time requested. Having access to secure wifi, tea, cookies, candy bars, and bottled water at no additional cost were unexpected treats. Ian and Ishbel truly have thought of everything ... a laptop in the room, bluerays and umbrella's available for you to borrow. The room was very bright and well decorated. The bed was the comfiest that I have slept in.

Room Tip: We had room two with a sitting area ... provided space for both of us to have some down time. The r...

This was our first stop on our tour of Scotland. We decided on Helensburgh as a base to visit the Loch Lomond area and found Sinclair House from the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor.

We stayed for two nights in Room 4 and had an excellent stay.

The room was very comfortable and had everything (and more) than you would expect. The added bonus of 3d Tv, sky, ipod dock, blue-ray dvd player and a laptop to use were lovely touches if you wanted to use them. The owners (Iain and Ishbel) had also taken the time to add links on the laptop of local restaurants and attractions. They also had a list of DVDs you could borrow off them to watch during your stay. We didn't take up this offer as we were out both evenings but it was nice to know we could.

There were tea and coffee making facilities plus a mini fridge big enough to hold drinks if we wanted. This would be nice to keep a bottle of wine/beers cool if you wanted a night in.

The bathroom was very nice. It was a good size with a big shower unit and very modern facilities. Again the little touches included shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and other toiletries which made it very welcoming. The towels were pristine white and fluffy.

Room 4 has a king size bed which was very comfortable (firm mattress) and allowed for two good nights sleep!

Breakfast was very nice and we pre-ordered the night before which meant there was no waiting round. Good options and tasty.

We really enjoyed our stay and in particular liked that the rooms had a separate entrance to the main house so you didn't feel like you were intruding and was very private for the guests to come and go and relax in their own rooms.

Thank you so much for your comprehensive review which, from our point of view, was excellent. We do like to have as many options as possible available for our guests and to be honest, the majority of the movies, Sky channels etc. are to help our business guests refrain from spending every evening in the pub.

Enjoyed two nights at this top notch B&B - super Internet access, delicious breakfasts, comfortable and immaculate rooms. Our hosts made us feel welcomed and comfortable. Would stay again and recommend to our friends.

This is by far the best accommodation I have stayed at in the UK
There was nothing left out by way of comforts.
Iain & Ishbel have thought of everything the breakfasts are great and they are wonderful hosts most willing to give advise and a mine of information.
If you are visiting Helensburgh or Loch Lomand it would be madness to stay anywhere else.
Facilities include WiFi, Blue Ray, Laptop, all bathroom requirements +, free Videos and lots of other additions to numerous to enumerate.
I highly recommend it.

Good food, Good service. Friendly hosts. Room was very comfortable and there was lots of little touches to make you feel welcome. Nice and quiet. Very near town and beach is easily within walking distance. Could not fault it. Would not hesitate to book this bed and breakfast again.
