I have been to Thurso multiple times for work and always stay with Angela at Murray House. Rooms are always clean, breakfast is always good and most importantly Angela is always friendly. When its been full I've tried other hotels and B&Bs in town but continue to go back to Murray House as I know its always reliable. My only... More

We're just back from a stay at Murray House and were very lucky to find such a friendly, centrally located B&B. Our room was warm, spacious and the endless hot water in the showers was just great. Breakfast was high quality and plentiful. The house has a large, attractive garden with off street parking. Location is very convenient for shops,... More

Booked this B&B, as was in Thurso on business in the area last winter. Room was small, but clean. I only stay at places with heating, as have problems with my joints, and am in a lot of pain if I get too cold. Website stated that it had central heating. The day I arrived was one of the coldest...

I am so sorry to read this review 9 months after your stay. Our heating does go off during the night, hot-water bottles and spare blankets are provided in every room. Our breakfasts are cooked using local butcher meat and farm eggs, the band round the black pudding is there to keep it intact, I snip this band before serving... More

We were only here a couple of nights, but the experience was better than we expected. The hosts were friendly and helpful, the interior of the building was very up-to-date without sacrificing a historical feel. (As I recall, the building was about 150 years old). Good breakfast, quiet rooms, comfortable beds and bath. And close to everything in town.

This is a lovely wee gem of a B&B - centrally situated and within walking distance of just about everywhere in Thurso. The whole place is spotlessly clean, and although the bedrooms are small they have everything you could need. We had a modern, spacious bathroom with a good shower. The host is extremely friendly and welcoming and served us... More

One night here & we have no complaints. Place was clean & owners very friendly & welcoming. Rooms were equipped with basics all of which were good. Wifi was doggy in the room but ok in the dining area. Location was perfect with good pubs for meals nearby. Breakfast was the normal B&B style & it tasted fine. Probably one... More

This is a solid well located B&B with a friendly and helpful host. The room was compact, but tastefully laid out with all that was expected. The spotlesslly clean ensuite had the best shower we have encountered in a B&B. Breakfast was great and the cental location made for an easy walk to the local eateries. Our host Angela was... More

Thanks for taking the time to review Murray House, we are pleased you had a nice stay. May I add that all our windows do open, sometimes they are a bit stiff with the salty air we have in the North.

This is a really nice B&B with a lovely and very helpful host. The rooms are lovely and warm and comfortable. The only downside was that the cooked breakfast wasn't the best - the bacon was swimming in water and the eggs were not very nice. Other than that, I had a lovely stay.

MurrayHouse, Owner at Murray House, responded to this review

Thank-you for your positive comments. I would like to say that our eggs are local farm eggs and our bacon is from our local butcher, sometimes brie runs out of scrambled eggs, something which cannot be helped. I always ask guests if everything is okay with their breakfast, this would have given me a chance to rectify any problems. More
