Awesome breakfast! Enjoyed chatting w Host in the AM. Very clean. Great location- close to grocery and train station, great base for exploring the area/ day trips. One a quiet street. Bed is firm. I was on the third floor and had good hot water in the shower, water pressure was average ( better than I expected!) based on previous European travels ( have stayed places w better and worse). No complaints on my end. I would stay here again 😁

A lovely house, beautifully decorated , clean and comfortable. When we ordered our stay, we were promised a double room with sea view....alas no sea view. The shower room waste bin hadn't been emptied after the last people left ! My first breakfast, I asked for scrambled egg on it's own with toast and some fresh tomato, uncooked.....I got egg on toast and cooked tomato ! Apart from my niggles, the couple were delightful and we would recommend Shandwick to anyone.

Lovely base for work
Stayed here on a Sunday night after 8 hours up in the car. Quick simple check in/out, friendly service, nice breakfast and ideally located in the middle of Tain. Will be back!

Nice overnight stay.
Shandwick house was ideally placed to break our long drive from Cheshire to Orkney. We were glad to arrive after about 8 hours on the road, and were warmly welcomed and shown to our room. The room was clean,comfortable and warm. It was very quiet overnight. We had a short walk along the nearby foreshore, very enjoyable after a day and n the car. The breakfast table included the usual juices and cereals, and a freshly cooked bacon, egg sausage set us up for the day. We had a pleasant chat with the owner and his wife, who came from the same area we live in. Small world! We would stay here again, if passing this way. PS, there is a Tesco nearby to fill up with fuel.
