Spent 2 nights at this hotel at the start of a 6 night holiday travelling NC500. Good base to see the sights in the north east. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was good again with pleasant attentive staff. The king size bed was comfortable and the room spacious with most amenities (no hairdryer that I could find ) but did have iron and board. Had dinner both nights food was very good. All in all we would recommend

The Ulbster Arms is a historic hotel in the tranquil village of Halkirk, within striking distance of all that Caithness has to offer. The staff are incredibly warm and friendly whilst the food is top quality. Will definitely be returning!

This is a very comfortable hotel in a quiet, but interesting village on the banks of the River Thurso. Good fishing and walks nearby. Staff were very attentive despite our being Nono-resident. Next time we are up there we shall try to book. Excellent value for money..

Our corner room in the old hotel building was delightful, on the first floor, with a great view over the river. Service is friendly and helpful. Food is generous, fairly standard good quality fare such as fish and chips.

We stayed overnight on our way to Orkney. Our room was large, pleasant and very comfy, except for the shower/bath. The decision to use a window bay meant it was difficult to pull down the blinds without standing in the bath. For those getting less steady on their feet standing in a roll top bath to have a shower is not a very comfortable experience. Nonetheless the bed was brilliant and the food was very good.
