Enjoyed this establishment as part of a group of 15 and was not disappointed. Fish was excellent and notably fresh as opposed to many other places which serve from frozen. I'm quite shocked at some of the other reviews although that's probably because I prefer quality over quantity.

There was also good selection of Scottish ales and whisky in the bar next door which was useful for the fourth course! Our group leader said had organised taxis to take us all back to our accommodation seeing as the hotel is a mile or two from the village 'centre' (and it was pitch black at the time) but it turned out to be the barman who did a few runs back and forward for us... free of charge - now that's what you call good service!!!

We had a great stay at the smoo cave hotel. Lovely comfortable room and enjoyed an amazing meal in the bar. Highly recommend the haggis scotch eggs! Friendly staff and good breakfast, would definitely stay here again. Visited the smoo cave and cocoa mountain nearby.

Have visited Smoo Cave Hotel on many occasions and have always been assured of a warm Highland welcome, kind people, good food, good beer, nice wine. And portions are man size; after a day in the hills, a well presented plate groaning with food is a fine conclusion!

We decided at the last minute to stop in Durness and I was able to find the Smoo Cave Hotel on my IPad. We didn't know anything about the hotel but we were so lucky to find it. The owner was so great and accommodating and we were so lucky to get in as other people were turned away. The room was clean and well equipped. We ate in the bar for dinner and the restaurant for breakfast and the food was good. All in all a good stay.
