I stayed overnight with my wife and 3 young children. We were given a hugely warm welcome and they had prepared a perfect large room on the ground floor for us. Nothing fancy - just what we needed. The team sourced us some special dinner for the kids and a bespoke breakfast. Incredibly friendly and nothing too much trouble.

I had to work on a boat in Scrabster harbour one morning, so a drive up the night before had me staying in The Ferry Inn. It was a long trip up, and I didn't get in till about 11pm. It was right on the harbour front and really easy to find. I don't know if it has a car... More

Great friendly hotel with lovely staff, right on the sea front looking into the harbour. Not too far from the town, bed rooms were clean and tidy and in a good state. Excellent value. Would recommend to friends and family. Great to wake up smelling the fresh sea air.

Stayed a night here on a around UK coast motorcycle ride. My mate and I stayed in the top twin room which was comfortable enough, clean, but perhaps a little cramped with no real space to stow our motorcycle luggage. Bathroom was clean as basic, the real treat was the harbour view of the fishing boats and naval vessels moving... More

We stayed at this hotel for two days so that we could undertake a day tour of the Orkney Island. It is located just down the road from the Ferry terminal (a 10 minute walk), so it was ideally located for that purpose. The hotel is an older hotel, so expectations were not high, but it was nonetheless a pleasant... More

In September I took a tour of the Orkneys and needed a place to stay that was near the ferry over to the Islands. The Ferry Inn fits the bill. The ferry is literally across the street. I came up from Glasgow on the train and arrived in Thurso. A few minutes by cab (or a few more by local... More

I have to admit I was a bit worried when we pulled up after getting off the ferry form Orkney. The outside looks a little gloomy and the smokers in the doorway don't help. However I was pleasantly surprised. Reception staff was excellent, the room was lovely, clean modern and comfortable. There were toiletries in the bathroom and nice white... More

This is actually a very good hotel although not in a location you'd expect, but don't be put off. There is a proper bar that serves the locals, there is a TV so is also a sports bar. The restaurant is clearly very popular with the locals as a steak house, although I had fish. The steaks look amazing and... More
