“Surprise find”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Didn't expect to find such a good wee B&B in Wick. It's ideal for people with a teenage kid. As well as the usual tv in room, clean ensuite bathroom, and great Scottish cooked breakfast with a choice of home made marmalade and jams, there was a games room with pool and table football. Ideal for the teenage boy of mine.
Also, the wifi here actually worked properly. Always a plus!

Stayed for 1 night in a single room with evening meal and breakfast (£30 B&B and £6.95 for evening meal) Felt at home straight away, the owners are very friendly and helpful and the establishment has a good atmosphere. A little way out of Wick (15 to 20 mins walk).
Room was clean and had everything to hand, tea and coffee, biscuits, free wifi,
Would recommend.

Well situated on the edge of Wick, a walkable distance from the centre along the cliff path. Lynne and Alan very helpful when we had a medical emergency late in the evening. Limited restaurants open in Wick on a Monday evening

I couldn't have wished for a more welcoming B&B for the first night of my John O' Groats to Land's End walk. Lynne and Alan are perfect hosts and go out of their way to look after you. The B&B is located just out of town, but the sea views are worth it.

If you ever find yourselves in Wick, then stay here. Lynne and Alan, the owners cannot do enough for you. The rooms are comfortable and welcoming, the breakfast is tasty and sets you up for the day. A real bonus is that you can use the microwave in the dining room to heat up a snack - or in our case a meal - if you're too tired to go out. This is on top of the fact that Lynne will provide an evening meal if you want one. This was my second visit - a year apart - and, if anything, the Impala had improved even more!

Working in area and stayed 2 nights at Impala and it was a great B+B. Room was warm and comfortable, wifi worked, breakfast was excellent with good choice and Alan and Lynne friendly and chatty. Not surprised that they are full most of the time with repeat customers, will stay there when I am next in area.

A brilliant B&B, very family orientated with table football and pool table for kids, board games and visitors lounge. Food is of a very high standard, bedrooms and bathrooms immaculate. It's like holidaying home form home. Lots to do in the area, Old Pultney Liqueur is a lovely tipple. Alan & Lynne the owners can always recommend local places to go and are always very helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Would definately recommend the Impala to others.
