The location is OK although on street parking rather than their own car park. The overall impression is that it needs a jolly good scrub and refit. The old fridge in the doorway (presumably awaiting disposal) is a bit off putting, as is the red carpet, which made my wife feel as though she were entering a brothel ! The... More

The view from the room was lovely. The guest house is difficult to find. The initial impression was dingy and grubby. The room, on first glance, appeared ok however there was a lot of dust and hair etc behind the bed (I was looking for a plug socket not intentionally inspecting the room!), behind the toilet and inbetween the shower...

We booked this bed and breakfast for three nights as we wanted to go to the Orkney islands. Oh dear the room was not suitable as it was on the top floor and I have a dodgy hip (my problem). The shower had not been cleaned and was dirty so could not use it, In fact our room was not... More

Last minute booking when plans went awry. Arrived on the last train in to Wick, tired after a long frustrating day. Check-in was quick and escorted to a clean modern room facing the harbour. The room was one of the best and the cheapest so far this trip. WiFi worked fine and the next mornings great breakfast was served in... More

Booked as part of our 14 night Scotland trip. On arriving the location is terrible. The outside is not very welcoming and the entrance was dirty and dusty. I was shown up 4 flights of dirty stairs to a room. It was along way up and difficult for my husband who has a bad ankle.It just seemed grubby and dull... More

This place was ok, it was clean enough and the staff were very friendly. The room and en suite were of a reasonable size but dated and in need of tlc in places. Furthermore, we could not connect to the wifi, the TV wasn't tuned to many channels and the trouser press didn't work. However it was in a lovely... More

Contrary to all the negative reviews here, I had a perfectly pleasant stay at the Harbour House. The owner went out of her way to welcome me and to outline the (rather limited!) eating options available in Wick. She said she'd happily provide cutlery and crockery if I decided to have takeaway. My double room was absolutely fine, the bed... More

I have never left a bad review before but this place was so different from what is advertised, and it was completely horrible. This place is dirty and badly looked after, and they are charging £70 a night! They even watered down the liquid soap. We were only staying one night, and it was too late to look elsewhere. Couldn't... More
