We stayed here as a base for our ferry trip to Orkney and were disappointed by the smallness of the room, lack of space for cases etc, having to lug these upstairs, and then to be told that there were no baths only showers, was not a good first impression. however the location and the breakfast and staff proved to be very good.

Room Tip: if you have mobility problems, ensure you ask for a ground floor room.

Good location, good room, good service, good food, can't really fault it. Best cottage pie I have ever tasted, superb fluffy potatoes. Very helpful staff, no hesitation in staying again, but unfortunately there is not much to do in the town itself. Good base for visiting John O' Groats.

booked this hotel through Booking.com and made simple mistake of choosing the wrong date. Emailed twice with no response and then had to phone the hotel to be basically told tough your mistake not my problem. Poor customer service, as regular hotel user I for one will never use this hotel again.

This hotel is well organised with cosy bedrooms, excellent ensuite facilities and a fine bar and restaurant on site. The restaurant has meals in the restaurant or bar, and the sitting areas adjacent to the bar are as comfortable and friendly as any you'd hope to visit. Breakfast is included and is both efficiently served and designed to set you up for the day ahead.

The hotel has a very comfortable feeling, anchored by the personal management of the family that owns the property. The location provides a wonderful base for visiting various sites throughout the area. The hotel offers its guest well-prepared breakfast and evening meals and provides a quiet room each night to prepare for the next day. Not a modern hotel, but a good choice for the area. Management went out of the way to contact us in advance of our arrival to answer questions about reserving a room to avoid stairs and to describe available laundry services. They went clearly out of the way to make us feel welcome with superior service and delighted us in the process. Note that Wi-Fi was available in the lounge and dining areas but not in our room.

Room Tip: contact hotel in advance if stairs cause a problem in access to room
