Stayed for 3 nights in the main building. The surrounding area is beautiful and the accommodation Is clean, modern and has everything you could need. Great sea view from all the rooms, These are the nicest self catering apartments I have stayed in. The only downside which stopped me scoring it 5stars was that our apartment was on the ground...

Don't let the stark scenery of the NE top of Scotland put you off, this place is a pure joy to stay at. Very well done apartments. Well equipped and modern in design. Good walking amazing views, a local pub and a healthy slice of peace. Brilliant

Excellent self catering facility. Extremely comfortable and well equipped. Well heated (absolute must when you are so far north), sea views and no issues with the Wi FI or Apple TV. Everything you could wish for for a relaxing and remote holiday.

Honestly struggle to understand any negatives about this company as all we have had from them is a wonderful service and immaculate accommodation. Appreciate what some have said about the key-safes but come on.... We stayed in Richmond last year and it was so good we decided to try John O'Groats this. We realised there was nothing in the area... More

We travelled with our family, four in a lodge, including a 2 and 4 year old plus four adults who stayed in a two bed apartment. The drive up from Inverness is absolutely stunning. John O'Groats has beautiful scenery, loads of seals and of course there is the attraction of being at the end of the land. It's also the... More

We stayed here recently in a 3 bedroom residence - separate building. The unit was very clean and had everything you would need to enjoy your stay. At the entrance there is a drying room which was very useful for washing and wet clothes/shoes etc. There was a fridge as well as a freezer. The welcome pack contained basic items.... More

You know it's not going to be good from first arriving, where to increase profits, there's no staffed front desk, the instructions for getting the keys are given to a non-existent key safe (we were rescued by a random hotel employee that wandered through, it's a good job we didn't arrive late), then having to negotiate through the library (hotter...

...and only a few bad things. The one-bedroom apartment was great in terms of amenities and the quality thereof. Lovely view of the shore from all windows. My parents stayed in a studio apartment that was equally as good, although clearly smaller. Reasonably-priced eateries nearby an added bonus. Very child-friendly, with a cot and high-chair provided free of charge. A... More
