“we arrived as guests and left as friends”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

I apologise for the lateness of this review. We stayed with Jane and Ian for three nights beginning 21st September. For two people who recently decided to make a big change and bought a B&B, they have certainly fitted into the lifestyle. They are both outgoing and friendly and perfectly suited to their rolls as hostess and host, so much so that nothing is a bother and we could not have felt more at home. Ian gave directions to several tourist destinations and pointed us towards places to eat. There breakfasts were special, particularly Janes's porridge which certainly came in as number 1 on my porridge list. As for the accommodation we had a beautiful room at the front of the house overlooking the main street of Newtonmore, and though it was on a major thoroughfare we had no road noise to be concerned about. Our accommodation was tastefully furnished well suited to the period style room with an open fire place and a well equipped bathroom. All areas were spotlessly clean and lovingly looked after. Even though the house is beautiful Jane is very excited and looking forward to the changes she can make during the off season. Future guests can take advantage of Jane's brilliant ideas when the 2014 season begins.
My husband and I found it hard to leave Clune House as we became very fond of both Jane and Ian. I am proud to say that we arrived as guests but left as friends. Thanks Jane and Ian for your friendship. We look forward to catching up with you when you come to Australia.

Room Tip: All rooms are great but I liked the room with the fire place overlooking the street.

My sisters and I, together with our husbands had a reunion in Newtonmore and Jane and Ian , the hosts at Clune House , could not have made our stay any better . From the moment we arrived we knew it was the right choice of venue. Spotlessly clean - positively gleaming in fact- beautifully appointed rooms with well equipped en-suites . Our bed was so comfortable , with the smell of freshly laundered high quality bed linen -what every woman wants on a night away!
The breakfast was equally appealing, and all served on lovely tableware. Jane and Ian are a pair of characters - such good fun - and client comfort is the top of their agenda. This is the standard one would expect of a boutique hotel. We'll be back !!! Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in Clune House with very friendly and welcoming hosts Ian and Jane. Their wealth of information and local knowledge were invaluable to help us get the most from our time in this idyllic region of Scotland. Our room was spacious and had everything you could need, the bed very comfy and our compliments to chef Jane for magnificent breakfasts. We would highly recommend a stay at Clune House to anyone and will definitely plan a return trip to this quaint and delightful village. Andrew and Sandra D.

I stopped of at Clune House and at once felt at ease. The welcome from Jane & Ian was warm, and the whole house was cosy and comfortable. From the Log fire to the welcome drink, I was spoilt with hospitality and care that helped ease my journey. The room was a good size, and the bed and bedding first class. With the location near to a great place to eat and drink and 2 minutes walk to the well stocked food store The guest house is handy without being noisy.
Breakfast was a full page and catered for all types including Croissants if required, and the days paper.... I only wish I had been staying longer. 10 out of 10 Clune House, a place to enjoy.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a view, the room overlooking the pines is lovely.

We have really appreciated our 5 days at Clune House at Newtonmore. The reception is excellent. Ian and Jane are more than professional, they are friendly, nice and their advices are useful. The B&B is good quality, the room is clean. And the breakfast, very good. I recommend this B&B.

We stayed a couple of nights in this comfortable guest house and we had a really nice experience there. The family running it is very kind and helpful, and our en-suite bedroom was simply perfect. Newtonmore is a tiny village but very well located and connected.
We have been travelling 15 days thorough Scotland and stayed in 8 different guest houses and the breakfast in Clune House was the best with no doubt. Thanks to the great cook!

Room Tip: The house has only four rooms and I guess all of the are nice.

Me and my husband stayed here for two nights. Ian and Jane made us feel very welcome and they could possibly be the friendliest people you will ever meet. Lovely rooms, great breakfast! If we ever visit Scotland again, we will make sure to stay here again!
