this hotel is a good value hotel for business users, and is also popular with the older folk. The room was clean and tidy if a little dated decor. Breakfast was good and hot from a self serve buffet with a good selection.

First glance from the outside gives the impression of a dreary drab place. Nothing could be further from the truth. Great staff, nice rooms, good food. It does overlook a supermarket car park, but a very short walk leads to a lovely park by the river.

have eaten here twice this week. The first was as part of a party of 7 and the second a carvery. Food was well prepared and presented, staff were pleasant and the prices reasonable. This is not a cheap area to stay or eat out by my standards but this hotel offers good food at keen prices. Don't know what... More

I was at this hotel for only 1 night during a business trip. The hotel is close to the centre of Wick. Pro: location, price(as I stayed a total of 7 days in week in other hotels in Wick) Cons: furniture which is quite old, there was no water pressure in my room so showering was a nightmare, breakfast which...

Dear Codrut G, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. The hotel building dates back to the 70s and so upgrading the facilities and the interior and exterior of the building continues to be a long project. So far we have seen positive changes and hope to continue to make worthwhile differences in the near future.... More

Initial impressions are discouraging with a grim exterior and threadbare furniture in reception. The Receptionist on duty when we arrived was charmless. The room I had was functional and ok if a little tired, especially the bathroom which looked overdue for refurbishment. The stand out feature was the excellent breakfast offering, including a wide range of berries, served by cheery... More

Dear FliesM20P, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. The building is very old and we are currently in the process of upgrading it. It has been a long project and one that we continue in hopes to improve the interior and the exterior of the hotel. It has proved worthwhile so far and we hope... More

We had a very pleasant lunch on the 28th May. Decent food at a reasonable price in quite attractive environment. Staff were very busy but perfectly friendly.Our meal was spoiled, however by the stupidly arrogant people near us who complained about everything and bullied the staff. Give the place a try - it's fine.

We first thought about going to two other places, before ending up here. But we were glad it went that way. Had a very good dinner. Informal and was a nice atmosphere. Staff was friendly. Food was really good and more then enough. Really can suggest this place to eat in Wick.
