5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2014

Room was spacious, newly/nicely decorated, with unbeatable views over Torrisdale Bay. Family-run staff team were very welcoming, friendly and helpful with our six month old baby. Evening meals and breakfasts were tasty, more lovely views from dining room. Hotel had real character and was a highlight of our trip so we stayed an extra night!

Arriving at Bettyhill Hotel by bicycle from the South is impressive, and the accommodation, welcome and views did not dissapoint. On the End to End cycle ride, this was our penultimate stopover, and what a stopover it was. Carl and Gabby were most welcoming, Chris, their son, was most helpfull with printing check in sheets for Easyjet, and views and... More

I'd describe this as a bar with rooms. The room was newly decorated and spotless with a stunning sea view. The shower room was tiny but adequate.The residents lounge smelled damp so we did not sit there. Food is served in the bar but the juke box is very loud so we opted for the restaurant. The menu was the... More

Although the hotel is not very special in most respects i.e. rooms, lounges and food it has atmosphere and is almost unique in the vicinity. If one drives from Ullapool to Dunnet circumferentially then this is a place to stay and enjoy the adequate amenities. It is a motorist's remuneration with the finest view of beaches and tidal clearings in... More

This place was suggested to us and as we wanted to visit Dunnet Head and John O Groats as part of our holiday it seemed ideally placed. We had travelled up from Ullapool along long, winding roads so it was nice to receive a warm welcome upon arrival. We were shown around the ground floor and then to our room.... More

The views of the bay are spectacular, especially when the sun is setting. Unfortunately it didn't make up for the room with an uncomfortable bed and tiny, cold shower room. The restaurant service whilst polite was poor, the menu awful and quality of food terrible. The breakfast was better. Overall the standards are of a pub not a hotel. Perhaps... More

Marvelous hotel with superb food. Our room had a fantastiv view at the beach and the bay. Staff and owners were very amiable. We stayed at Bettyhill only for one night on our way to Thurso. Turned out that Bettyhill is ideally located to catch the ferry to Orkney. If we return to Scotland once again, we will plan to... More

On a family trip out we found ourselves in a lovely place called Bettyhill. Needing toilets and refreshment we found everything closed except for the hotel on the hill. Getting desperate for the facilities we ventured in but found we were very warmly welcomed to the hotel were we ordered coffee and tea. The owner could do enough for us,... More
