This was a nice, friendly hotel and the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was described as being small but it was actually a more than acceptable size with a comfortable bed and a nice view over the gardens and perfectly clean. We ate dinner at the hotel; unfortunately they had run out of... More

Really lovely staff, superb black pudding starter at dinner, good whisky selection. Location is wonderful- so close to Melvich beach which is beautiful. The hotel is very easy to find as it is just as you come into Melvich.

The room we were in was described as a small double if that was small the others must have beed huge. Clean modern comfortable room. Food good but menu limited could benifit with some plainer dishes eg fish and chips or steak pie somthing like that. Over all an enjoyable stay.

Arriving for one nights stay we over shot the hotel as the Melvich Hotel Sign only seems visible arriving from Thurso Area ( East ) and not from the west. This didn't cause us a problem as we stopped of at a little pub a few miles further down. shared a swift one with the locals and got put back... More

Location: sea-view, but pretty distant from it. The hotel, FROM THE OUTSIDE, is nice and CHARACTERISTIC; with a BEAUTIFUL GARDEN, very well looked after. What a shame that, as soon as we went beyond the reception and traversed the HALLWAYS, all CHARM VANISHED and we were struck by an PIERCING STINK OF MOISTURE!!! I guess it’s because of the omnipresent... More

We stayed here on our way to Orkney and it was lovely. The staff were very attentive, helpful and really made us feel welcome. The room was lovely and clean with stunning views when the weather permitted. The restaurant was very very good, it was a shame they only had one of the Sole specials left when we sat down... More

We made this our base for a day trip to Orkney and it was perfect. We enjoyed the large room and bath, as well as the friendly staff and good hot breakfasts. Although they say hot food is prepared starting at 7:30, they were kind enough to make us hot breakfasts earlier so we could catch the ferry.

The outside from the road does not look promising but the welcome inside is great. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The fish for an evening meal was lovely and the staff were very eager to please. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great and the view across the garden and bay was beautiful. There is... More
