Cromarty isn't overflowing with accommodation, and The Sydney Guest House is just what's needed - reasonably priced, centrally located and with a pleasant host. Also welcome is a breakfast period extending to 9am.

We were made very welcome. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Alasdair was an excellent host and provided lots of local information as well as a wonderful breakfast. The stunning large garden is worth exploring too. Being centrally situated meant there were no sea views but this was offset by the convenient access to the various pubs...

We had a very good room. Quiet dark at night and plenty of space. Good breakfast and tips on what to see. Dolphins at Chanonry Point ...remember the tides...wonderful Cromarty itself must be one of the prettiest villages in Scotland. Beware restaurants book out so get a reservation in.

Just stayed here and what a lovely B&B with a friendly and attentive host. Room was fantastic looking out onto back garden and road but very quiet. The house retains a lot of original features including wooden shutters instead of curtains. Breakfast was excellent and hit the spot. Would strongly recommend this place and we will be back in the...

I doubt there could be a better B & B in the area. The rooms are light, airy, comfortable and spotless. The host Alisdair pays a great deal of attention to ensuring that your stay in Cromarty matches the wonderful atmosphere of this magical little town. The food is first rate and well prepared. Select porridge as one of the...

We spent a very enjoyable weekend in Cromarty. Sydney House proved excellent value for money. Charming Georgian house with large, pretty garden. The hosts were friendly and welcoming.

We decided to visit Cromarty as part of a wee trip north and arrived with no expectations other than that we might be fortunate enough to see the resident Dolphins. Sydney House was highly recommended in a number of guides and although we never normally opt for a B&B we decided to try it out. It was perfect - Alasdair...
