The hotel was very good, a lounge, super view from the dining room (ask for a table next to the window), the chef was excellent, fish caught very nearby that day. Our room was spacious and we had an ensuite shower room.

The room was very big and had separate shower and bath. The view was over the gardens towards the sea with the cliffs - very nice! Dinner was absolutely delicious! Such a place all the way up north is exactly what i was looking for - a gem waiting to be discovered!

Pleasantly surprised with the accommodation, the room (room 1) overlooked the sea front and gardens. The room was very clean although the bathroom a little on the small side. The staff very helpful and special thanks go to Jennifer who provided us with some useful information on our NC500 trip. Both the dinner and breakfast was of a very high... More

Thanks for nice stay. Room was great, brilliant view over to Melvich beach. Dinner at night was excellent, the ribeye steak and brownie were really good. Will definitely recommend this hotel and will be back next time up that way u hope :)

We arrived after a long trip from Perth via Tongue stopped on the chance they may have rooms available. Allocated a small double with a sea view. Excellent facilities, clean, food was really good if a little expensive. The room was very small but had all that you needed.

The staff were friendly and welcoming, and dinner was very tasty - would recommend the venison! The downside was our dingy twin-bedded room: when a room's so small that two's a crowd, it really should be offered only as a single.

The staff were friendly and efficient, helpful in showing us where to lock our bikes and kindly they left some breakfast out for us as we had to leave early in the morning before their main breakfast service - for this we are eternally grateful! We didn't eat in the restaurant but judging by comments from other guests in the... More

Lovely hotel. Rooms are clean & comfortable, bathroom was huge with good bath and large walk in shower. Amazing views from the bedroom. Food was good. Only thing that lets it down just a little is the dining area which we found had no character, apart from the views. Staff were very friendly. Despite the weather we enjoyed our stay... More
