    “We are return bookers of Strathnaver the last time being September three years ago.”

    We found the house totally unchanged. The House is in real need of refurbishment. Examples such as Bedding and Duvets and glassware need replacement. Obvious fabric Maintenance is required of things like Doors, the Front Door jamming, Balcony doors stuck, also the En-suite Shower glass door jamming closed which is not safe. Vertical Blinds in the Large front bathroom even had blades missing with poor function so no privacy. We had low log supplies inside and nothing available outside on arrival ...

    We found the house totally unchanged. The House is in real need of refurbishment. Examples such as Bedding and Duvets and glassware need replacement. Obvious fabric Maintenance is required of things like Doors, the Front Door jamming, Balcony doors stuck, also the En-suite Shower glass door jamming closed which is not safe. Vertical Blinds in the Large front bathroom even had blades missing with poor function so no privacy. We had low log supplies inside and nothing available outside on arrival so had to call housekeeper for delivery, it was minus 5C outside, house was cool, so we used electric heaters. Asked to wash towels on departure in the House Guide book and strip beds used but no wash tablets left. Lack of basic cleaning materials. High occupancy of up to 8 people is very obviously taking its toll of wear on the basic facilities of this house. Regardless of this we love Strathnaver it has a very unique homely feel and yes we would rebook in the future. An honest review from regular Home renters.

    Thank you for your comments. There should have been enough logs for your stay. The shower door has a catch that needs firm pressure. There should have been ample glassware and linen in good order. I will have this checked. We welcome your review and act upon this. Kind regards - Sykes owner relations
