For starters, anyone expecting a luxury hotel in this spot should think again: John O'Groats is a landmark, a goal, not really a stay-on place. This said, we were so glad we found Mary and Mark's (and their daughter's too) guest house! Travelling by motorbike, we make no reservations very much in advance, so we just arrived and looked/asked around.... More

Don't be put off by a rather unprepossessing exterior. The moment you step inside Mark and Mary make you feel as though you are a very welcome family member. We were supporting friends who has just completed a Land's End to John o' Groats charity ride who were staying elsewhere. There was no problem in their joining us for dinner... More

Spent two nights here while we went on the Maxi Tour of Orkney. First impressions of the guest house are not ideal, it looks a bit like an american road house especially with the sign on the roof but persevere.We parked in the car park and before we had got out Mark came rushing over to welcome us. Mary was... More

stayed here with our "boys" who were doing JOG to Lands'End cycle ride and the 3 peaks en route. Mark and Mary are amazing people - nothing was too much trouble and they were genuinely interested in what we were doing. Great place to start the adventure!

I don't think I have ever been somewhere when nothing was too much trouble, these are exceptional people giving outstanding service and value. Comfortable and well kept rooms, tasty and good value supper, delicious breakfast with plenty of choice. I cannot recommend this place enough - absolutely outstanding in every respect.

My first ever review....because Mary and Mark are superb hosts! We were made very welcome on arrival. When I booked I made them aware I had Coeliac and what a surprise on Monday morning to be told that Mary had just whipped up a batch of gluten free pancakes for breakfast! They were that good I had more the next... More

We stayed at this lovely guest house for 1 night on our trip around Scotland. Mary is one of friendliest people I have ever met. She greeted us with refreshments on arrival and made us feel right at home. The room was a great size with an en suite and was very clean. We ate dinner at the guest house... More

From the moment I rang to book a room here & spoke to Mary I have had nothing but good experiences from this place! I arrived here late on a Friday eve with my Brother in Law to start our cycle trip down to Lands End. Mary & Mark couldn't have been more welcoming! From the outside this place looks... More

WOW my Husband and I stayed with Mary & Mark a few weeks ago, we arrived on a Sunday evening and for anyone that has made the trip to JOG, will know, however you arrive, you're a bit wind swept, tired and thrilled to have made it! I knew they offered dinner, but I hadn't phoned ahead or anything, especially... More
