This Hotel is like the whole town of Wick: A bit worn but charming. Our room was on the small side and you could not regulate the heating. Breakfast wasn't that great either, but the friendly staff made up for it.

Staff at the hotel were amazing, so friendly and helpful. We had just got married and arrived for dinner to a congratulations banner and balloon, nice touch. Hotel is excellent value and ideal for touring the area and visiting John O'groats.

Please do not judge this hotel on the outside. On first sight it looks pretty bleak. Inside you will be warmly welcomed & it has charms within. Good value too. breakfast wAs buffet style but we liked the porridge & berries. & fresh fruit on offer.

Arriving each day to a beautiful warm fresh meeting room, already set with an abundance of refreshments together with melt in your mouth shortbread. A vegan amongst us was no problem to the attentive staff, who provided a hearty lunch of home made soup and very tasty sandwiches... a local favourite for a quick lunch, allowing time for a leisurely...

I stayed in this hotel years ago and it was terrible. The transformation is remarkable! Clean well laid out and welcoming. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Room was spacious and clean with a comfy bed and good TV. WiFi coverage was the best I've ever experienced. Breakfast was plentiful and good. We ended up having to stay another night... More

From the minute we walked through the doors to our departure our experience at the Norseman was wonderful. Our first floor room view was of some old churchyard ruins. Does it get any better? The grassy area was pocked with purple crocus and snowdrops, so pretty. Our room was clean, comfortable and here is a real bonus, had a bathtub.... More
