We arrived a dark and rainy evening en route to Melvich. We had reserved a deluxe room with a view, an the next day, in the bright, but low, morning sun the view was stunning. Foam blowing over the headland from breaking waves, the Orkneys visible across the Firth. We had dinner in the warm, cosy and friendly pub, discussing... More

Stayed here for 2 nights 14th and 15th December, wasn't long enough. On arrival woman at desk was very nice. On first impression of my room it was very big and comfortable with everything a man or woman could want from the hair dryer to the local shortbread. The bathroom the same over bath shower was hot and powerful. Both... More

The tables were beautifully decorated with all the Christmas things you could want and large jugs of fruit juice. The staff were well organised and prompt in their attention. The food was excellent, except that the soup was cold when served, but this was very quickly rectified. The three course meal was followed by coffee and mince pies and the... More

Different room from last time and also very comfortable and clean. Cannot fault this hotel for value and friendly staff. The food is very fresh and hearty. As near as you can comfortably be to the ferry terminal and handy to get into Thurso. Stayed before and will be glad to stay again.

Have stayed in the lodges here about 6 times now as an overnight stop before the ferry to Orkney. The lodges are clean but to be fair are "workman" style which is fine for the very fair price & could benefit from new mattresses. The meals served in the restaurant in the evenings are excellent & the included breakfast is... More

Basic hotel. Friendly helpful staff. Rooms were very large, comfortable and clean. Restaurant was just ok. Menu basic pub food, server knew little about the menu. Food was just ok. Overall a decent place to spend the night but nothing special here.

Had trouble finding the reception, as walked round the whole building to find it. Upgraded to a superior double room was not what I would have expected.. The bathroom was clean, however the roller blind on the window was caked in mold. In the bedroom the chairs did not match and one of them was dirty the other looked like... More

Don't stay here. We were put into what they call a chalet but was in reality a workmans shack with chipped washbasin and springs sticking out of the bed. We thought we had booked into the hotel at £70 for the night but were shoved into this awful accomodation. They are used by contractors we found out later.

The hotel is easy to find and thee is plenty of parking. Though a little dated it is very clean and the staff are friendly. It does seem that Scottish hospitality is far warmer than the service one receives South of the border, and I say this as an Englishman. Hence the staff attitude help raise the bar on most... More
