I stayed at Pennyland House with my son last September on a short cycle trip up through the Highlands to John O'Groats. I have stayed in many highly rated hotels which did not come close to matching the quality of accommodation you get here. It is simply a lovely place to stay in every way - beautifully decorated with an open and airy feel and spotlessly clean. But the standard of our welcome and hospitality was even better. Not only were we allowed to drop off our bags on the way through Thurso, in order to make the ride to John O'Groats much easier, we were welcomed in to be plied with tea and biscuits to help us on our way. On returning in the evening very tired and saddle-sore, a good restaurant was recommended, and a reservation made for us while we showered. You just will not do better than this.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pennyland House is located on the edge of Thurso in a quiet, but convenient location and boasts wonderful views of the Orkney Islands, Dunnet Head, Scrabster and Thurso Bay. It is a three story building dating back over two hundred years. Built in 1780 it is historically noted for being the birthplace of Sir William Alexander Smith, the founder of the Boys Brigade. Over the past few years we have sympathetically renovated this historic building and turned it into a comfortable and interesting bed and breakfast for our guests. Although not yet rated, we are confident that you will not be disappointed with the quality and service during your stay with us. We have enjoyed putting our personal stamp on Pennyland House and have tried to reflect what we believe people want in a 'home from home'. ... more less
