“Good B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

We enjoyed our spacious and comfortable room and Lisa's gracious hospitality during our recent stay in Thurso. The Pentland Lodge House provides a great base for exploring the area and the staff was very willing to help with reservations for dinner and day trips. The only thing that could have been improved was better wifi access in our room.

Stayed as its close for the ferry.
Excellent rooms, facilities, breakfast and plenty of parking.
People who own it were lovely, nothing too much trouble. Good location and very comfortable beds.
Will be back, thank you

I stayed here for one night on a business trip. The rooms are a good size, comfortable and warm. having complimentary wifi was also a bonus. Everything was spotlessly clean and the facilities are excellent. Breakfast was very good too! I would definitely stay here again!

I'm a contractor working near Thurso and therefore have tried a lot of local hotels / BandB's, The Pentland Lodge is the best hands down, friendly courteous staff, super rooms - clean, power showers, excellent wifi and a good hospitality tray. it also provides one of the best breakfasts i have ever, Lisa and Liz will do anything to make your stay perfect - The ONLY place to stay in Thurso you will not be disappointed !!!! 10/10 ******

Room Tip: all the rooms are to a very high standard it does not matter which one you stay in !!

We arrived at Pentland Lodge House, which is on the ourskirts of Thurso and a five minute drive from Scrabster for the Orkney ferry. A friendly greeting and our room, at the top of this grand old house, was modern and comfortable. The en suite was clean and well fitted.

We had a really good night's sleep in the very comfortable bed without any disturbance (especially from seagulls).

We came down for breakfast with no staff around, as it seems the girl had overslept and we were left to our own devices. We found the kitchen and managed to make tea and toast when someone arrived, apologised and set about making breakfast. Unfortunately the breakfast was overcooked, which, with the delay, somewhat spoiled the stay.

Room Tip: If you don't like stairs ask for a room not at the top of the house.

We arrived on a cold Saturday afternoon with no reservation, after a trip from Aviemore. Having seen the excellent Tripadvisor reviews thought we'd give it a try. Liz showed us two possible rooms and we went for the 'huge' double. The room was spotless, comfortable and warm with local shortbread on the hospitality tray. We were offered breakfast at a time to suit us. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. After breakfast Liz provided us with lost of information of places to visit on he next leg of our journey across the North coast. An excellent B&B and would definitely recommend it if you are in this part of the world!

I love staying in hotels, I've tried B and Bs and although many are fine, I've always defaulted to a hotel stay. However a spur of the moment trip to Thurso, a warm voice greeting my phone enquiries and we booked.
We were met at the station by Liz; 'I was free' ......my reluctance to stay in B and Bs was evaporating.
Pentland Lodge is clean, bright in decor and also in welcome and ideas for the first time visitor, fabulous breakfast, smiley, informed staff.....and the downstairs room we stayed in is excellent for disabled guests.
Won over!

Room Tip: Describe your needs to the staff as you book, they'll give you every assistance.
