Stayed here the night before we boarded the ferry for Orkney Islands. Very convenient. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room overlooking harbor. Very clean and comfortable. Would stay again. Nice short walk to the lighthouse.

Stayed over as part of a circular tour of Scotland. The hotel was lovely and clean and we ate in the restaurant where the food was excellent. Overall a great experience and well worth a visit especially the food.

Best sirloin steak ive ever had. Usually have fillet steak in Upper Deck but chose Orkney reared sirloin instead. Cooked to perfection. Young waiter only 3 days new to job and was so polite and couldnt do enough for us.

Great location for ferry crossing to Orkney Clean, comfortable and nice family room on the ground floor, with a good hearty breakfast in the morning. Only downside is the night light that stays on in the family room is a little to bright if your a light sleeper, otherwise no complaints

Recenttly renovated but still needs a little attention to the decorating of the room. Ensuite facility good. Breakfast in the adjoining restaurant very good. Evening meals in both the restaurant and in the bar excellent and very good value. Staff very friendly and helpful.

No lift. 40 stairs to 2 nd floor and no one available to help with bags :( if Internet is important to you it doesn't reach 2 nd floor. Friendly staff. Great breakfast menu, smoked haddock and poached eggs, full Scottish with absolutely everything, scrambled egg with smoked salmon and bacon among others. Good shower pressure. Haddock and chips good... More

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
