A good base
A one night business stop.
Pleasant helpful staff. Good bar food, not expensive. Decent wifi. Comfortable bed. All you need really.
I was passing through and needed a bed.
The room was clean and comfortable and the food was good. The staff were polite and helpful
nice hotel staff very freindly ,over priced at £70 , should be around the £50 to £60 range .
I stayed here for 2 nights during my Highland trip.
The staff of the hotel were extremely helpful and attentive. The food in the restaurant was very good too. One can eat in the bar or in the restaurant. (I ate there both nights as there was nowhere else if one did not want to have to drive into Thurso itself, which is about 4 miles away.) Nearby, there is an interesting old flagstone quarry and heritage centre that provides information about the now-defunct operations of the quarry and about flagstone in general.
The location is very good for getting to Dunnet Head, John O'Groats and Wick.
Unfortunately my room faced the main street and so there was quite a bit of traffic noise at busy times, so, if this bothers you, I'd suggest that you ask them to put you in a room facing the back of the hotel. The other issue was that it was not possible to open the windows very far (only about an inch), and (surprisingly for the north of Scotland), the weather was quite warm, which made the room a little bit hot, but this was a minor issue.
A lovely friendly hotel
We had a warm welcome a substantial carvery meal on Sunday evening and found this hotel ideally placed for local trips and for ferries to Orkney.
Good clean accommodation ideal for touring around Thuso / John O groats area.
Only Inn in the village used by friendly locals - Food especially the Sunday roast was excellent but advisable to book early as very popular with the locals - Hotel is used by coach companies during the summer season so could get very busy.
Great value hotel
I have stayed at this hotel previously and would recommend it to anyone that is visiting the area.
Its a great value hotel which provides a good breakfast and food is also served in the evening, which is also nice and again good value. The rooms are all very good and typical hotel rooms really, nothing special. In the room that I was in I did have difficulty turning the taps on for the shower as they were extremely stiff and as its a mixer shower, the water was either too hot or cold. I suspect this mixer system is just old and needs replaced. So I had a relaxing bath instead, which was excellent as there was plenty of hot water with high pressure. I would stay here again as its excellent value and have no complaints about staff or service as they are all lovely. Just the tap issue, which is minimal really.
Lovely hotel, friendly staff, clean spacious rooms with clean and roomy en suite bathrooms.
staff are friendly and helpful and always have a real smile for you. the food was delicious, would recommend that anyone going stays a sunday night and enjoys the carvery and the dessert trolley. what a wonderful place to stay, and if we are ever in the north of scotland again we will most certainly stay there again.
Food smells from the kitchen throughout the ground floor, kitchen needs improved ventilation and the bar food was below average.
Breakfast was excellent and the hotel, although needs some updating, was good value for money.
Staff were lovely , room was clean and tidy, food was fantastic , I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone I know.
Can't fault it at all. We had a fab stay.
