Stayed one night on brief visit to Thurso. Excellent room, friendly service and best breakfast in town! We will be back. Would highly recommend to future visitors to this delightful town - but be sure to bring a warm coat.

We stayed at the annexe, across the road from the main hotel. It was perfect for our needs, and the staff couldn't do enough to help. Nice and clean, and it felt like we had our own flat, which was of huge benefit. The food is excellent, and although sometimes breakfast was a bit slow coming, it was always worth...

I stayed here a night in August, I had booked a triple room, as it was the only room available in the area. I had a pleasant stay. I had dinner in the hotel, which I very much enjoyed. I will try to book ahead in future if I return to the area

Then we were told they were waiting on someone to come serve us. The woman arrived and told us they had no rooms available even though we had just...

The Holborn is a good hotel in the center of Thurso with varied style of rooms to suit solo travelers to families. Excellent bar and restaurant with helpful and friendly staff. This hotel was fully booked when i returned to Thurso a week later but i still ate in the bar and restaurant.

I stayed here for one night when I was working nearby. It is conveniently located in central Thurso and has free wi-fi, a bar and a restaurant. My room was simple but fine, although there were no batteries in the TV remote. The restaurant had stopped serving food when I arrived (just after 9pm) but there was a good Indian...

Hotel is run down and could do with a lick of paint. Room was clean enough and shower was decent, apart from this there is not many other positives I can give. My partner and I had the worst sleep and barely slept a wink as the bed was so uncomfortable. Judging by the rest of the décor, the mattresses...
