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...

Thank you very much for this wonderful review of Sydney House. I am thrilled to find that you think that I make "the best porridge ever" and that you highly recommend staying here.

Just enjoyed a 3 night stay at the B & B whilst on a dolphin watching trip. My daughter and myself had the twin room that was a good size. Everything very clean, bed nice and comfy. Alasdair was very thoughtful and helpful, happy to advise places to visit. We are both vegetarians and enjoyed beautifully veggie cooked breakfasts.

The rooms were spotless and the house is well loved.alisdair and Shirley quite proud of their home and rightly so.the breakfast is excellent we travelled nearly 400miles but we'll worth it

Cromarty, as part of the Black Is is not a place that I suspect most people consider staying in when travelling to the north highlands, but it should be. It's quaint, old seafaring streetscape harks back to another time, and Sydney House sits right in the middle of it. You will find Alasdair a genial host who, whilst being unobtrusive...

A great B&B, very clean and our room was a good size including seating area. Breakfast was freshly cooked with wonderful quality bacon and sausage (as we had Scottish breakfast). Really good value for money. Would definitely stay again. P.S. Cromarty is a lovely little village - doesn't disappoint from the guide books !!

Our third, or is the fourth visit. Very friendly welcome and excellent rooms. What more could you ask? This year, as Easyjet shifted our flight time - thank you Easyjet - we couldn't take advantage of the excellent breakfast. Easy on-street parking.

Sometimes you go back to a place you've been to before, and it's a bit of a let-down. Not Sydney House. It was just as I remembered it. It's a lovely house, with a tranquil atmosphere and beautiful rooms. Good pressure in the shower - always a bonus. Fantastic breakfast. And, Alasdair, we finally saw some dolphins! A mother and...

Excellent, large comfortable, clean room, large bathroom. The owner, Alasdair, was pleasant, very gracious and accommodating. Excellent breakfast, Best porridge we had during our visit to the Highlands (and we had some good porridge). We appreciated the history of the house as told to us by Alasdair. Sydney House provided a good base for pleasant walks in and around Cromarty....
