I often sit in a hotel room and think, god if only the room had this and that it would be so much better. I couldnt fault this room, in fact it they had put in a fridge and a reclining sofa I would have been tempted to stay forever! The simple supper menu was perfect for me and the... More

The Lodge was very convenient for me, I was working long hours. So picked up microwavable meals during the day. All the basics were there to enjoy a take away also. The food was fairly good in the Hotel but having to get back showed changed and into the bar by 8.30 would have reduced my overtime. Excellent breakfast with... More

Cajun burger bun was dry, next to no garlic mayonnaise. Lasagne did not taste like lasagne.Chips looked like they had been cooked and cooked and cooked again. Would not recommend to anyone. Will not be coming back. Got a tin of coke at the bar - think it was out of date, no fizz in it whatsoever. Barman doesnt seem... More

Two days here and ate both days, Food is very good value, well-cooked, tasty and imaginitive. Rooms are warm, [and were ON when arriving on a cold night which was very welcome] clean and comfortable. Excellent value for money and very convenient for Scrabster, Thurso or the Orkney / Stromness ferry two minutes away. All staff I met were very... More

We spent one night at this establishment in a room in one of the annex buildings. While spacious the room and bathroom were a bit tired and the wifi didn't extend to this room (the wifi within the reception building was also patchy). Meal in the bar was ok

Firstly book the hotel direct, you get hammered when you book it through booking.com The rooms are quite fine, the food is surprising good for where it is. The staff are really helpful and decent. Some rooms are inside and some are outside. We stayed in a cheap room and it was perfectly fine. You have to remember that this... More

The rooms in this place are clean and tidy but they are very dated. That is about as good as it gets on this review I'm afraid. The food is absolutely awful. A 10 oz steak turned out to be 4 oz of meat and 6 oz of fat. I think the "chef" must have a new deep fat frier... More

We stayed here on 14th and 20th September as part of a trip to Orkney. Every thing about the Weigh Inn can be recommended. The food was excellent and accommodation very comfortable. if you are traveling to Orkney this place is ideal for the ferries especially from Gills Bay

Ok so the worst part, every morning at breakfast the milk was sour! However if you ask they will bring you some that hasn't gone off yay! The man in the bar is a complete idiot who should be fired. I pointed out on my first night that their "vegetarian" menu gad meat products in one of the meals. He... More
