“A REAL GEM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

What a great place to stay and Liz was the perfect host. Stayed there on the way to Orkney from Salisbury. Our room was fantastic and there was nothing we needed for. Well located for a stroll into town. Great attention to detail and was finished to a very high standard. Have already booked another visit to Orkney for 2014 and will certainly be be staying here again on route. Highly recommend staying here if you're in the area. Foolish if you don't. Well done Liz.

Room Tip: What a great bed. The best sleep I had since leaving home a week earlier.

My recent stay at this B & B was without doubt one of the best I've had. The welcome given by Lisa couldn't have been warmer (unlike the weather). So far as I could tell, the proprietors had everything covered. A comfortable room, great shower, better wifi connectivity than many far more expensive hotels! Lovely breakfast too with locally sourced products.
I have no hesitation in completely recommending this establishment. If you're this far North, stay here!

Big room and great shower. Tasty early breakfast. Building well located in Thurso and a short walk to beach, harbour or the little town centre. Well suited for the morning ferries to Orkney or exploring northern Scotland. Wish to return and stay longer.

We had excellent stay at the Pentland Lodge House in June 2013. Lisa was a great host and very informative. Large and comfortable rooms and Lisa made our stay very welcome. Thank you Lisa for being such a great host.

Absolutely fantastic stay at the Pentland lodge. Our first guesthouse as a family, normally opting for a hotel, but we were not dissapointed. Lovely room, comfortable beds, and warm all night. Top quality products from the tea and shortbread in the room, to the toiletries and locally sorced breakfast produce. Staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed and homely.

My disabled husband and I stopped here on our way to and from the Orkney Ferry - 1 mile down the road. The Cairnmore room is very well set up for wheelchair users with a fully adapted bathroom and flat access everywhere. Also very large room and very comfortable indeed.
The house is old but the modern unscenic parts of Thurso have crept around it - but don't be put off. A short walk and the views of Thurso bay are stupendous. Easy walk to good eating places.
A really friendly welcome and lots of extras like geological and natural history information in depth.
Great breakfast. No complaints at all.

An excellent hotel with lovely, clean and large rooms. Very warm welcoming greeting and excellent service. The breakfast was great and a good selection. This is a must if you want somewhere reasonably priced to stay in the Thurso area.
