I am on a 15 day hiking holiday, of which the first 5 was spent in Newtonmore. I did not really know what to expect as I am rather new to B&Bs.
The host (Amanda) was extremely welcoming, ready with a well organised information pack about Newtonmore. She is obvisouly experienced in catering for the outdoor types as a printed weather report was offered each morning along with an optional route card.
The breakfast was prompt each morning and was done to a high standard (e.g. the sausages were especially nice and decisively not from the "value" range), complete with a large pot of tea and a selection of home made jams.
I am usually quite picky when it comes to rooms, however I was pleasantly suprised at the standard of cleanliness. The furnature were also evidently well looked after.
On the whole, a very organised and wecloming B&B; a particular must for hikers!
