Best place to eat in Scrabster with very good food at very reasonable prices. If its a hot sunny day (yes the Highlands do have them!) get a seat away from the large windows or else you'll also be fried !!

The Ferry Inn was decent for one night's stay and had fairly large sized rooms with kettle, tea and coffee. The nearby pub and restaurant are also pleasant and the breakfast was terrific. The view of the harbor and boats makes for a terrific and interesting view. The decor is a bit dated, but it kind of adds to the... More

We stayed here simply for convenience as we wanted to catch the first ferry to Orkney. I wasn't sure what to expect from the outside, but we were pleasantly surprised once we reached the room. It was on the small size but perfect for just one night. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed the... More

Found Ferry Inn while looking for an overnight stay close to Stromness Ferry terminal. Turns out this Inn has been recently modernized; the rooms are well-appointed. Wifi available; satellite TV available as well. Bar food delicious and staff friendly / attentive. Delicious breakfast. Great place to stay in the Thurso / Ferry area. We'd gladly stay there again.

We stayed at the Ferry Inn on our way to Orkney and didn't really know what to expect. The room we had was spacious, comfortable and clean. It had all of the necessary tea and coffee making facilities travellers might need. It offered an exceptionally good breakfast as part of the package. The staff were very friendly and helpful and,...

Stayed here for one night... Pros:- Easy parking on the opposite side of the main road. Staff friendly. Good food in the Upper Deck (Sunday Roast on arrival and breakfast the following morning). Bed linen nicely laundered with plenty of clean towels. Cons:- The bedroom walls and the ceiling above the window had a lot of damp patches, causing the... More

We stayed overnight before catching the ferry to Stromness. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was very clean and the shower with reasonable pressure and hot water. The staff at the bar were very friendly. Highly recommended. Ok price.

Very friendly staff and locals, excellent room with lovely big clean bed and nice hot shower. No complaints at all!! After a long drive up from London this was just what we needed, a warm welcome. Waking up to a view of the harbour also was nice. Tasty breakfast also included in the price

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Room big, clean and had view of harbour. Food we had was in restaurant that is next door and was superb. Great choice even though I'm not a seafood lover. There is also a bar meal that sounded delicious. Bar is a sports bar so sky sports, football etc on so might not... More
