Beautiful room in the lodge away from the main building, very helpful staff. Amazing choice of breakfasts. Ideal location as a base to explore the local area. Nice choice of local ales. Easy to find - even in the snow and ice.

Recently refurbished hotel - clean, attractive and fresh in bedrooms and public rooms. Corridors are a bit gloomy. Watch your shins on the chunky bed corners! Bathroom huge but soap dish not accessible from bath. In the bedroom, there needs to be a mirror closer to the hair dryer point. Evening meal in bar was OK and plentiful. Good breakfast... More

Definitely my favourite hotel in Caithness and worth a stay if you are in the area. It is quite expensive but worth it. Staff are amazing. Food is great - all home cooked although smelt like oil needing changing. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Well done again Ulbster for a great visit.

We had a lovely one night stay here as part of our North Coast 500 holiday. Our room was a great size, clean & comfortable. The public areas at the front of the hotel are just gorgeous, if our room hadn't included a comfy couch I think we'd have happily spent our evening in the Library with our Kindles. Our... More

Most professional run hotel. Staff are outstanding in their skills and approach in dealing with guests. There are Bar Meals and Beat 4 Resturant. The food choice is sound and elegant and well prepared, presented and good value. Calmness can be found in the "Library" - very pleasant room. This hotel is patronised by fishermen. However, well worth a visit... More
