After 14 days in the saddle, we could not have dreamt of a more wonderful last night to our adventure! We received an extremely enthusiastic and warm welcome, and Mary cooked us a lovely 3 course meal which we shared with other LEJOG finishers in a relaxed and lively atmosphere! The accommodation was just what we needed after the long... More

Stopped in having not booked any accommodation. Very welcoming and luckily had a room spare. Mark and Mary are very friendly and helpful. Room was clean, comfortable bed. No too far away from the 'town'. Very nice breakfast.

After having finished our end-to-end tour we rested at Mary's and Mark's Guest House in John O'Groats. The rooms are nicely equiped, clean and quiet. Meals are freshly cooked and delicious. Especially noteworthy are Mary and Mark, whose hospitality maked you feel very welcome. Simply perfect - not only for cyclists.

My husband and I stayed with Mary and Mark after completing the end-to-end in June. Halfway through the trip I booked a room and Mary was so friendly on the phone, promising the family room with a bath. On finishing the tour we were exhausted. After arriving at the Guest House we were met with the perfect welcome; warm smiles,... More

Really welcoming, friendly, helpful hosts. The set up is great allowing you to mingle with other guests (often other cyclists) at dinner and breakfast. The 3 course dinner is great value and Mary is an excellent cook. Rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. And the lift from Wick station from Mark was much appreciated! Highly recommend this guest house if... More

I can't recommend this Guesthouse enough, I really can't. The hosts are so excellent and their service excels everything I have ever experienced before. The rooms are comfortable and the food excellent and very reasonably priced. They couldn't have been more lovely hosts, or more welcoming. Lovely toiletries in the bathroom as well, and all round good service. I will... More

Mary and Mark are so welcoming and will go that extra mile to help you enjoy your stay. The accommodation is clean fresh and comfortable. The evening meal cooked by Mary was excellent, the best steak I've had in a long time. I had just finished an End to End cycle trip and the greeting from Mark and Mary was... More
