We stayed one night here with our dog. The place had just opened for this season so was still fairly quiet. Friendly hotel, good sized clean rooms. The evening meal was well cooked - not a lot of choice but excellent food - in a place where it is difficult to find many good places to eat and stay. The... More

Only good words to spend about this lovely hotel in Melvich. Located a few meters away from the sea, the view is fabulous from the window's room and restaurant. The 'cuisine' is delicate and staff is welcoming. The room was clean, quiet and "warm". The lounge was cosy.

Cannot fault this hotel on any level. Rooms clean, bright and extremely comfortable with all mod cons. Restaurant – fantastic food and a lovely view. Staff down to earth and very friendly. I was not drinking due to completing my cycle ride the next day but the selection of whiskeys available nearly broke me. Would always stay here if I... More

We were welcomed by the owner who was very friendly and helped us safely store our bikes in outbuildings. Rooms are tastefully furnished and there is a lovely guest lounge with free wifi. Food was good and all staff seemed very helpful.

We booked this hotel to be nearby the ferry terminal at Scrabster, Scotland. It was about a 30 minute drive. The hotel was lovely with a view to the sea from the small-ish windows in our room. The room was recently renovated and clean. No wifi access in the room, but a guest lounge with access. Note: there is nothing... More

A colleague booked me a room for a one night stay while working locally. We were greeted and escorted to our room by somebody in chef's whites who went out of his way to welcome us and tell us about the facilities. The room was big, simply furnished and tastefully decorated; it had everything we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our... More

A clean and tastefully decorated hotel with very comfortable beds. If you are a fan of single malt whisky the bar has a plentiful selection to choose from. We were travelling with a baby, the staff were very attentive making sure we had everything we need. Will stay again when we return to the area.

The owner greeted us and organised a continental breakfast as we were off to orkney on the 08:45. As you have to be scrabster 30 mins before and the drive was 30 mins we could not make cooled breakfast which starts at 08:00. Anyway food was good, rooms clean and comfy. The guests lounge was cost and spent a jive... More

There's so much to like about this hotel. We felt valued as guests and thought the tour on arrival and being shown to our room added a welcome personal touch. The room itself was exceptional - large, comfortable and tastefully decorated in neutral colours and with a spacious, modern bathroom and spectacular views. I've sometimes paid twice as much for...
