St Clair Hotel
Ranked #8 of 9 Hotels in Thurso
Reviewed 28 August 2017 via mobile

An alright hotel, nothing special. Room was clean and staff ok but everything just enough to get by rather than being anything special. Save your money on breakfast and go somewhere else. If wanting to park, be aware that it's just on the road wherever you can find a space.

We are on a package tour of Scotland and the St Clair was the tour operators choice. Admittedly, the hotel is quaint and the rooms are clean but that is where the positives stop.

We have a double room and it is TINY. The double (no queen or king options) bed takes up most of the room with no room for suitcases to be opened (or stored) on the floor. There is no seat in the room.

Our room is on the ground floor facing the cobblestoned street. It is Scottish summer - the rooms are heated but not cooled, so we needed to leave the window open for air. Every sound from the street: cars, pedestrians, young revellers going home after the pubs closed at 3:00am and delivery drivers commencing at 4:30am could be heard clearly. The walls are thin and the floors creak...

Overall, if you're looking for a Victorian experience in the 21st century, this is a hotel for you. If you are looking for a modicum of what is expected today, find another hotel.

We didn't experience the hotel's restaurant as the menu was extremely limited and old fashioned. Not surprisingly, the restaurant was not even mentioned on Trip Advisor.

A very pleasant one night stay with great bed and spacious room. The large windows overlooked the Main Street and everything was immaculate. Linens were great and soft.
The breakfast was adequate and the central location made for a nice walk to see the Main Street and shops.

The St Clair Hotel has friendly staff and is clean and functional. Our room was three flights up a steep, narrow staircase. It was cramped with a view over the bins at the back. Breakfast was of acceptable, bus party standard with nice kippers. The hotel is a trifle expensive for what it offers.
