John O'GroatsPosted Oct 4, 2013
Pros: The friendly attentive staff
Cons: Update the decor and fittings of the room I stayed in.
Location: John O'Groats by public transport. Heritage Museum. The Telford Trail.
A warm friendly reception when I arrived. Room was much bigger than expected, but furniture and appearance was quite dated. It was more than adequate for the planned 2 night stop over. Dining room and menu quite good with a reasonable selection of drinks on offer at the bar. Wick does not have a lot to offer the tourist in the evening. All in all, a basic but pleasant hotel stay.

Nice host, great breakfast, clean roomPosted Sep 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
Ryan and his sister are very friendly and accommodating. Our room was good sized. Breakfast (included) was phenomenal. It's about 25 minutes to John O'Groats ferry. Originally a large Victorian owned by a furniture maker, the woodwork is wonderful. The hotel has a bit of shabbiness about it, although it is clean. For us it filled the bill as a comfortable place to sleep and have access to the ferry to the Orkneys the next day.

Functional, but tired lookingPosted Aug 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
Functional, but tired looking hotel - really just an old fashioned boarding house. The bathroom looked very grotty and was in need of some upgrading. The panes of glass in the window were loose due to the frames having rotted away and the putty falling out. Thankfully we were visiting during the summer.Parking outside was easy enough, WiFi reception poor.

Classic, older hotelPosted Aug 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
Overall - a good stay. The hotel is old and has some signs of deterioration (mattress springs were apparent and the ceiling over the bed had a limited amount of water damage), but mostly has been maintained. The staff were friendly and courteous.

A NO Go AreaPosted Aug 5, 2013
Breakfast was good & waitress was polite & helpful But! Hotel very tired not seen a coat of paint in decades..Sour smell in hotel. Carpets threadbare Furniture in room old & long since had any lustre or tlc. The mirror was hanging out the frame of the dressing table. The sink was cracked & the hot tap was loose. The toilet seat was held on one hinge only & the shower cabinet had mould in the crevices. We returned on Saturday night at 10.45 to find the door locked and no one available to answer doorbell/phone etc to let us in Dreadful!

DisapointingPosted Jul 16, 2013
Building is in need of a major overhaul. The fiitings also are in poor state with things such as the glass falling out of the window frame, the mirror falling out of its frame, the windows sealed up with age and paint.

DisappointingPosted Apr 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
The room was off a good size, but not at all clean. Sheets were dirty. Although WIFI is advertised it certainly doesn't extend to the rooms. Breakfast was good
