We stayed a night here on our tour round the north coast and loved it. The surrounding area is beautiful, and I'd love to go back and do some walks there. One comment is: just be aware that the stairs up to the rooms are a tad on the steep side, in case that's a problem for you. HOWEVER, the... More

I have written a review for Strathy Inn before but feel since I come mostly on a yearly basis I should write a new one. For me it is excellent value and also in an excellent location. When I booked my overnight stay I was asked if I would like to book for something to eat in the restaurant later... More

My girlfriend and I stayed 1 night having driven from near Elgin. The hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful, and we were pleasantly surprised by the size and standard of our en-suite room. Location is great for exploring the surrounding area both East and West and there are some lovely beaches around. The bar itself was a great bonus and... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Strathy Inn on a number of occasions whilst relocating to the area. The accommodation is to a high standard and Heathers breakfast scrambled eggs with local smoked salmon were a real treat and not to be missed. I have stayed at hundreds of guest houses and hotels over the years and often... More

Stayed for 3 nights at fairly short notice. Very comfortable and well appointed with masses of books! Friendly proprietors and good choice of home cooked food in the bar restaurant. Many whiskies available to try!

To whom ever it may concern, On visiting this inn for the first time I felt like it on first assessment that it was going to be a lovely warm, welcoming eatery, what I found it to be was like an episode of the league of gentlemen. People came in for food and were turned away from reserved tables that... More

I am sorry you found your experience at the Strathy Inn disappointing. Our aim is to provide good quality, home cooked food, somewhat different from standard “pub grub” at reasonable prices in a pleasant environment. Clearly you consider that we failed in that, but we do find some of your comments very difficult to understand. I am aware you asked... More

Having spent the night here whilst travelling through the North of Scotland we stayed at the Strathy Inn and received the most excellent service. The owners put themselves out to make us welcome. The rooms were warm, clean and comfortable and the food was delicious. We will be certain to return whenever we are in the area.

I stayed here in April 2015 whilst on a solo cycle trip in the area. The Inn is on a main road between Thurso & Bettyhill. I was given a double en suite room even though I was on my own, lovely room with all amenities. I had an evening meal in the bar which was good. Breakfast was also... More
