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

I found the place to be fine. Yes, you have to climb stairs to the rooms and some of the stuff needs up-dating, but the owners are trying hard and were always on site if there were any problems. Breakfast being only available in the room may be a little strange for some people but it suited me.

A really mixed experience here, you get the impression the owners have put a lot of work in to smarten the place up, but are struggling to keep an air of decay at bay. A bit like the atmosphere over the whole of Wick. You walk into the B&B through a dank hallway redolent of a tenement building. Check in... More

Single room was a nice size but the bathroom was across the hall, which was awkward. All other rooms are ensuite. That would have been fine, if it hadn't looked like it needed a good clean, which disappointed and disgusted me. I've stayed in hostels with cleaner bathrooms. As others have mentioned it looked like a not so finished do... More

I stopped here with my husband on the way home from the Orkney Islands for 1 night. It was a last minute booking only the day before, but was accepted with no problems. The parking is on road but seemed readily accessible whilst we were there. There are a lot of steep steps in this b and b, particularly if... More

We used this bed and breakfast on a recent trip through Scotland. Got to say it was OK but could benefit from a good clean, The room was large but not clean, the bed and linen although was clean and we did have a good nights sl;eep, Lovely location overlooking the working harbour. The breakfast was great and well presented.

A small family house with around 4 rooms converted into guest rooms. Well equipped and will designed. They cooked and served the food as per our requirements. Gives view of the quiet harbour and the light house. It is a very small village. Early morning walk to the light house is a nice way to start the day. The family... More

We had an average two night stay. The owners were friendly and showed us to our room quickly etc. we could smell the cigarette smoke wafting through the building though which isn't very nice so the owners must smoke inside. The lounge/pool room location remains a mystery as we couldn't see any sign on the doors to show where it... More

Harbour House is located only a 5 minute walk from the town, and 10/15 mins from Wick railway station, and in a good position overlooking the harbour. I recieved a friendly welcome and was offered help with my case as you do have to.go.up a couple of flights to the rooms. I was in Room 2 which was roomy and... More
