About the hotel

A former coaching inn, the Royal Hotel is one of the best-equipped hotels on the North Coast of Scotland. The Royal retains a warm and friendly atmosphere, which help to make it one of the most popular hotels in the area. The North Coast of Scotland is still relatively undiscovered, yet it is surprisingly easy to travel there.

The hotel makes an excellent base for trips to the Orkney Islands and the ferry from John O'Groats takes only 45 minutes. There are 103 en-suite rooms, all offering wireless Internet access, Freeview TV and tea and coffee-making facilities. The hotel is close to the beach and guests wishing to visit the exquisite scenery of Orkney can take a short ferry journey to this captivating island. Further sightseeing opportunities can be found at John O’Groats, the Castle of Mey or Old St Peter’s Church. Guests arriving for business purposes can make use of our business centre services and conference rooms, all with Wi-Fi access.

Lovely hotel, great location, good value, friendly staff.

Booked on laterooms, stayed for 3 nights, excellent value, room spacious, bed comfy, large en suite.

Staff friendly. We ate in the bar on our first night, food good. Breakfast good each morning. Hotel in good central location in town, has a hotel car park, and there is also parking in the street across the road. Would definitely recommend. Will be back.

The Royal Hotel Thurso - a Bespoke Hotel

Perfectly adequate for a one night stay.

Good value. Hotel is a bit "tired" looking. Room was basic but clean. Evening meal in the bar was uninspiring pub grub but freshly cooked. Breakfast was good.
