The Station Hotel is a reasonable choice in an area not distinguished for good hotels. The food was somewhat above average, as were the rooms. It is of course convenient for John O'Groats and the surrounding area and for the ferry at Scrabster to Orkney.

Simply lovely!!!!! All staff were friendly and very helpful. Good value for money. Food was excellent. Totally recommend this place. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The night we stayed had a coach party staying and they took over the dinning room. However the staff made us feel welcome in the bar area.

Stayed here in August 2014 for 2 nights on a tour of Scotland. In a "remote" location did not expect much and got what I expected. Room in "basement" was dark and uncomfrotable but reasonably clean. Staff was very helpful and food was surprisingly good here. As a place to "put your head" while visiting in the north of Scotland,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during our Insight Vacations tour of Scotland in August 2014. As other reviewers have said, expectations must be lowered to an appropriate level when staying out in the "country roads" of Scotland. The location is good in that it is centrally located in the town and the town itself is a good jumping point... More

As part of a week long tour of GB via public transport, the accommodation was crucial for myself and my 3 sons to recharge our batteries and finding a family room in areas where Hotels are a bit thin on the ground can be a challenge. Stan, the concierge at the Station Hotel was helpful as could be when I... More

First of all, if you’ve never been to this area, its important to manage your expectations; people don’t tend to come here to be pampered by incredibly impressive and attentive service by highly trained staff or wowed by Michelin standard food. So you’d be lucky to find that type of thing anywhere nearby. With that said, let me start with... More

Stayed here for two nights. Was allocated an outside studio room which had a bathroom at one end, a bed space with both a double and a single in the middle and the living room space at the front. Despite it being an odd sort if set up the bed was most comfortable and the place light and airy. It's... More

This is an old hotel with a couple of floors. No elevator. Quite nice reception, dining room and bar. Rooms are old but adequate and the water pressure in the shower is low but enough. Comfortable bed and the room has TV and heaters. It's about a 25 minute walk to Tesco at a leisurely pace. Dinner was basic but... More
