“Absolutely Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This property ticked all the boxes, including for us, a bathroom perfectly appointed for a disabled guest. The room was spacious, clean, bright and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and generous and the welcome we received from Lisa made us feel very much at home. Location was excellent, with restaurants and town attractions at our fingertips.
We couldn't fault our stay in this beautiful part of the world.

Room Tip: We only saw one room - the one with disabled facilities in the bathroom - it was great.

Just had a four day break in Scotland and used the lodge as our base. Wow, great place to stay. Lisa and Tracey were superb, they just could not do enough for you. The website and information booklets were great and helped to plan what to see. The rooms were so comfortable and breakfast to die for. Exceptionally clean and all mod cons. Can't thank Lisa enough for the great time we had. Pentland Lodge you have got it so right. Oh and I agree poached eggs are fab. No pressure then. We'll be back!!

Definitely the best place we stayed at during our trip around the Highlands and Orkney. 4 star plus. It is a very old building but very modern inside. The bedrooms were very clean and look newly decorated, as did the large en-suite. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The information booklet was very good, although we weren’t able to take advantage of it as we were just passing through.

Plenty of parking and close enough to walk into town but surrounded by other houses.

We only stayed one night but were comfortable and cosy in our large room. The shower was very good and the bathroom roomy. Breakfast was tasty - poached eggs particularly good. All-in-all, a pleasant stay. Good car parking off street.

Warm and friendly welcome. Rooms are in a contempory style, spotlessly clean, with all the little extras thought about. If you stay here you really should use the information booklets that Liz has prepared so that you can make the most of your visit, if you don't you'll miss out on some of the highlights of the area. Really looking forward to going back again.

We were sad to leave Pentland Lodge and Thurso. Everything was great!! We slept well, had wonderful breakfasts and felt at home from home. The room was well equiped and clean and the shower was really powerful and hot.

Room Tip: All equally good

We enjoyed our stay at Pentland Lodge Guest House. The staff was friendly, warm, and welcoming, attuned to guests needs.

Our early departure for a ferry was accommodated with a breakfast served earlier than normal. The food was delicious.

The first floor family room was accessible, large and very comfortable.

A nearby beach is a great place to look for rocks and shells.

The web site has interesting and helpful suggestions about things to see, places to hike etc on the way north to Thurso. In particular we enjoyed and followed through on the scenic drives on smaller roads, a visit to the Falls of Shin and a hike in Golspie.

Make dinner reservations at the good local restaurants ahead of time. We were not able to get into our chosen place.
