Our stay landed us with the attic rooms. Sofa bed is nothing more than a camp stretcher fit for camping not a B&B. Shared bathroom was substandard. Shared, means sharing with site managers as well as other attic room, this is unhygienic for all concerned, in particular the managers where cross infection is a major concern. Attic room is suitable...

We stayed 1 night on our John O'Groats to Land's End cycle challenge. Excellent rooms, very clean and the breakfast was outstanding. Lesley and Bryan were very helpful in accommodating our trailer and bikes and there was a very good pub for food across the road which was welcomed by the hungry cyclists. Would highly recommend Grove House.

We stayed here for only one night before catching the ferry to Tiree. The room was very comfortable, tastefully decorated and filled with those important details that makes Grove House stand out from the rest. Unfortunately, we left too early to enjoy the full breakfast, but were able to help ourselves to an array of cereals, juices and hot drinks....

Travelling in group of 7 people including 3 teenagers. Really made to feel welcome. Fantastic breakfats, Very nice location close to the Falls of Laura and a couple of hundred yards to the Oyster Inn with very good food (but marginal beer!) Nothing really to say against this great place. Strongly recommended.
