Firstly, Hillhaven is signposted from the town of Fortrose, which is useful as our satnav tried to leave us 2 miles away from it (we were approaching it from the north). We had the twin bedded room which is not en-suite but we did have our own bathroom across the corridor. The proprietors (Fiona &Steve ??) were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable with a view overlooking the local fields. The cooked breakfast was delicious and set us up for the rest of the day. It was recommended that we visited the Fairy Glen before we left which we really enjoyed.

This is a very comfortable, clean and friendly B&B, well placed for all of Black Isle and convenient even further to the west coast. Highly recommended.

We stayed over for just the one night because the B&B is very close to Inverness Airport. Good location very close to the beach, shops and restaurants. The hosts were very welcoming and the room was lovely. Nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast was very good. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Basic,clean but,comparing it with B&B's in a similar price range in which we have stayed I think overpriced.

Tasteful accomodation, friendly hosts, perfect stay

This was an ideal wee B&B for us to base ourselves on our trip to the Black Isle.Lovely room and fab breakfast.You'll need a taxi or drive into Fortrose for dinner. We took a taxi both nights which was easy to organise.

We enjoyed our two day stay. The owners are very nice. Everything was fine. We will recommend to friends to go there. It's near from Inverness.

Beautiful house on the hills behind Fortrose. Very quiet, excellent hosts, comfy beds, yummy breakfast. Fiona had some good advice about getting dinner in town. Thank you, if I ever return to Fortrose, I will stay with you again.

Steve and Fiona were very welcoming hosts;accommodating and knowledgeable. Delicious breakfasts. Loved the spacious fully-equipped room, especially the Jacuzzi tub. Off the beaten path but close enough to town (less than 10-minute drive).Only negatives would be the dog smell when you first arrive (we got used to it pretty quickly) and no key given to visitors as there is no lock on the room door, so when we had gone out for a few hours, we came back to find the owner away and the main door locked. We had to wait an hour before she returned at 4pm (check-in time).Regardless, would definitely recommend staying here for anyone visiting the Black Isle. Wish we could've stayed longer.

We recently spent a night at Hillhaven when visiting Fortrose for a friend's golden wedding. We would very warmly commend Hillhaven to anyone looking for a hospitable, comfortable and beautifully located B&B in the area. It was a pleasure to be there;and, especially, to enjoy a delicious breakfast looking out over those beautiful fields and hills in the morning sunshine. Hillhaven is very well situated for exploring the wonders of a huge part of northern Scotland.

The standard of the rooms, the attention to detail and the wide choice at breakfast makes this somewhere you want to go to again.We had a beautiful room, spacious with an additional "dressing room"with tea and coffee facilities. Not fiddly sachets but full tea and coffee jars -just like home. The bathroom was also lovely, really large with every complimentary extra you could imagine!Breakfast had two fish choices as well as the enormous Scottish breakfast! Lots of choice.Set in fields above Fortrose. Lovely place loely people and such a high standard!

Stayed in this lovely B &Bfor 2 nights. Set in a beautiful country location. Theroom in the picture is the room we stayed in , it was very clean and comfortable. Fiona and Stephen were very welcoming and attentive. We were there to visit Chanonry Point to see the dolphins and Stephen advised us of the best times to see them. The B &B was very nice inside and out, the decor was modern and soothing.Nothing was too much trouble,Fiona gave us information and some history on local walks.Everything about the experience we had at Hiillhaven was very informal, friendly and relaxing, we would definitely recommend Hillhaven, and intend returning next year.
Reviewer:Ms. Pamela P | Fri 13th Sep 2013 | 6 years ago
My stay at Hillhaven was excellent. The room was definitely well above standard - at least 4 if not 5 star as there were so many features.I was very impressed with the bathroom that had a Jacuzzi bath and separate power shower .I would highly recommend this B&B and also the area as it is very beautiful and would make a wonderful weekend break.I'll be taking my husband next time so that he can share the lovely experience I had.
Reviewer:Miss. Michelle L | Tue 27th Aug 2013 | 6 years ago
I searched online for a B&B near Fortrose and came up with Hillhaven. Thankfully I know the area a little and it is well sign posted as it is a little off the beaten track.The location is wonderful and the silence is deafening. The rooms are modern, fresh and tastefully decorated and could easily pass military inspection for being clean.The owners are friendly and welcoming with a very helpful and positive bearing.The breakfast is the best choice I have seen in many a year and the portions set you up well for the day.While the tariffs are not the cheapest around they are far from the most expensive either. In my opinion it is well worth every penny and I would certainly stay there again. I highly recommend Hillhaven to anyone visiting the Fortrose area and looking for a first class B&B.
