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

The biggest positive was that our family of 4 found a place for a late dinner having driven all the way from John O'groats for a place to eat. The staff were warm an welcoming but we found the bar/ restaurant very drab. It seemed too dull and the food was mediocre.

Stayed for one night and would definitely stay again if in Thurso. Had dinner at the bar and the servings are huge,good choice of beer as well. The place was very busy and had to take a smoking room,to my surprise it did not smell that much which was good.

Arrived early but staff at reception assured us this was no problem. They advised us to order food before we went to our room as restaurant closed at 1400 hrs. Ordered food and drink which was on the table when we returned from our room. had dinner later and food was of a very high standard. Breakfast was exceptional with... More
