Excellent stay wanting for nothing. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. A bit ore than I would wish to pay but average for this area owing to oil industry.SSSSS

We had a very pleasant, one night stay at Morven House. Martin gave us a warm welcome, allowed us to store our bicycles in his garage, and gave us a good recommendation for dinner dining in Alness. Breakfast was tasty and filling. Morven House is easy to find on the main road into town.SSSSS

This was ideal for us passing through by bike on our way to John O'Groats. The room was huge and bathroom good with toiletries provided. The guest lounge was appreciated for after our meal and the breakfast was varied and of good quality. Martin provided a garage where we could keep our bikes overnight. Overall a good experience, thank you.SSSSS

Loved our stay at this bed and breakfast. Lovely friendly couple with a warming smile. We actually cancelled on our arrival day because of bad weather as we were travelling 200 miles and they didn't want a cancellation fee. The weather improved in the afternoon, so we re booked and travelled to Alness and completed our weekend. Great service and highly recommended. Drew from Larkhall SSSSS
