We stayed one night in a clean and comfortable room on the top floor, with a small but functional en-suite. Also had a very nice dinner and a few beers in the bar. Good value and a nice place to stay.

From our B&B in Granville Crescent it was a pleasant walk into town to find somewhere for Dinner. After a look around we selected Red Pepper and entered. The welcome was warm and friendly and the menu attractive. This was not a plush sort of place but the tables and chairs were clean and ready for occupation. The menu was... More

Stayed here as our the booking company my employer uses were struggling to find anywhere else. Rooms were clean and appeared to have been recently been decorated. I was on the top floor so had sloping ceilings to contend with. The shower room was tiny but I had a powerful shower and plenty of hot water. Not the sort of... More

We recently had a meal at The Holburn Hotel and it was very disappointing to say the least. There was really nothing to say about the service as there wasn't any. This was very overpriced and really poor quality - Do not order the steak baguette the steak is terrible.

The ouside of this hotel isn't very inviting but inside it's a different story. My single room was very clean and of a high standard , as was the en-suite bathroom. I ate in the downstairs bar which had excellent real ale (hard to find in Thurso....) from the Orkney Brewery, and a large plate of vegetarian pasta with garlic... More

Room Very clean and comfortable , ok small tv with a freeview box but not a problem it does the job. Very friendly staff , great... More

Stayed one night here at a price of £80, on a tour of Scotland. The hotel is centrally located, and just an easy 10 minute walk from Thurso railway station. The small reception area was rarely ever manned. The bedroom had an en-suite shower room, but there was no bath. The double bed was reasonably comfortable. Very ancient microscopic Decca... More

My partner and I traveled from Wales to Thurso for a wedding last year (late review, sorry). It was very nice and simple and I have nothing bad to say about it. The room was basic with everything we needed and a very comfy bed, the staff were friendly and the bar was a very nice place to relax with... More

We chose to have lunch in the bar-restaurant for a change and were pleasantly surprised with the food - seafood platter, fish n chips and fajitas (a large sizzling plate of chicken, with 3 wraps and 3 accompaniments). All was well cooked and presented. The bar/lounge decor needs updating but we were there for a quick, tasty Sunday lunch and... More

We booked a1 night stay in the Annex at the hotel, The member of staff could not answer any of our question regarding the room. The annex compiled of two twin rooms and a separate bathroom. The rooms were to say the least dated but clean. I believe the annex rooms are not a reflection of the rooms in the... More
