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 stayed here on the last day of an 11 day tour of the Highlands and it was just what we needed. A large room, good size bathroom, very welcoming host and an interesting little town. Our host even pointed us in the direction of the bottle nose dolphins as we drove to the airport across the Black Isle. 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. Our twin room had everything we needed - the beds were comfortable, the power shower in the ensuite was great and the breakfast was very good. Sydney House is right in the...

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...

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.

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...
