We stayed at the Ferry Inn overnight before taking the early morning ferry to Orkney. Outwardly the FI doesn't look particularly inviting, but the room was comfortable and clean and despite overlooking the busy harbour fairly quiet too. We would definitely stay there again en route to Orkney. The bar is very much a locals' pub, but the staff are... More

2 ladies from NZ and Australia stayed at the Ferry Inn overlooking the port harbour. Excellent facilities. Clean, tidy and comfortable. Nice friendly staff although the young woman didn't know whether the room was a front or back room. Good wifi and free parking on the road. The Restaurant was up the stairs next door. Food choice was excellent and... More

We visited Scrabster on a tour of the highlands and stopped at FI for a light lunch. The service was friendly and the food delicious, what more could one ask for? We sat outside overlooking the harbour watching the world go by eating our lunch, magical.

(food only review) The Ferry Inn next to the Scrabster ferry terminal definitely looks a bit dated, however the food served is of good quality and quantity yielding a fair deal. The food on the menu definitely is pub food but there's some surprising burgers on the menu that differ from the standard burgers you can get at many places.

We stayed here the night before catching the ferry to Stromness. We found the room to be clean and comfortable with views of the harbour. The breakfast was very good and excellent value. The ferry was two minutes away.

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,...
