I stayed for 3 nights the 3rd week of January when on a business trip. Located pretty much slap bang in the town centre. Parking on the street outside, neat and tidy room, fantastic power shower, free wi-fi and a Scottish breakfast cooked to absolute perfection by lovely people. What else could you possibly need? Thanks so much!

Very central, easy walking distance from station. This B&B left nothing wanting: modern (but well established), clean, calm, warm, well organised, comfortable, well designed, helpful and knowledgable without being intrusive. And everything worked.

Great value. Fast WiFi. Good water pressure and temperature in the shower; I hate a bad shower and I often find bad examples even at expensive hotels ;). Friendly service and good advice on local matters. Breakfast was good with good choices, Top marks - thanks.

Murray House was just what I was looking for: cosy room, hearty breakfast and a great location from which to have a walk and see the town. The room was great value for money and the Wi-Fi was fast which was awesome!

Well, I was happy that my friend had foudn Murray House because I wanted a spot close to the church which I would be attending. There is nothing special about this place, but it was warm and pleasant. The room was small and not particularly quiet. The owner did kindly make sure I had a VERY early morning taxi to... More

Murray House had everything I wanted for my stay in Thurso. It was commendably clean, comfortable, and quiet – better than some expensive multi-star hotels that I’ve stayed in. It was also conveniently located – easy to find, close to all the facilities in the town, and with free parking available. Perhaps most importantly, the proprietors were every bit as... More

This was one of the nicest guest houses we stayed during our road trip to Scotland. Family room on top floor is very cosy and modern. Breakfast is good. And lovely lady who runs the house really made the atmosphere.
