I stayed here for one night during August 2016. We had a very spacious room which was very clean and tidy. The B&B has just been taken over by a new couple who are very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was very good too

Lovely Victorian house with guest lounge and comfortable en-suite room. Owners Anika and Andreas (Andy) could not be more welcoming. Great breakfasts with lovely touches e.g. marmalade & jam doesn't come in the usual plastic, foil-lidded containers - instead you spoon the preserves from jars into little ceramic pots. Andy is a recognised fine art photographer and his work will...

Lovely house & garden perfectly placed in Nairn. The owners are very friendly with total professional attention to detail. Nothing is too much bother, they sincerely want everything to be perfect for you. The smell of the shampoo, soaps etc is wonderful. All part of the time out experience! The coffee machine at breakfast is fantastic! Highly recommend. We will...

A great location, close to the station and plenty of on street parking. Only complaint was noisy seagulls- can't do much about that.

The hosts were amazing and we received many ideas what to do in this beautiful location. We liked the topical manor house rooms, it was very clean and we have not expected such a high quality breakfast. It is a great location if you like golf, bike riding and may be also skiing in winter what we will try hopefully...

Cawdor House Bed and Breakfast was a wonderful addition to our Scotland visit. The rooms were comfortable and cozy and the location was within nice walking distance to shops, bars, restaurants, and the beach. Paul is a wonderful cook - we LOVED his food and most of all his hospitality. I would love to go back!

Cawdor House was an absolute gem. It's a beautiful stone built very close to the centre of Nairn. It is spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished with tasteful pieces and fabrics. We had the Garden Room which had its own entrance and was prettily furnished, warm and comfortable. Breakfast is taken in the main house and the quality and selection of...
