Pentland Thurso
The hotel is located in the middle of town, it has no parking, but it was possible to park in the street nearby. The hotel is rather old and the floorboards creak a bit, so other guests moving around are audible. The staff are welcoming and pleasant and the food is very good. Breakfast is buffet style and you help yourself to as much as you want.

Good stay
The hotel was fine, staff very friendly and helpful. Slept really well, although I think the mattress is older than me! Shower is pitiful. Nice big clean towel though. Overall good.

Pleasant stay
Reasonably comfortable hotel with great staff. Reception and dining room staff in particular. Breakfast and dinner quite enjoyable. Water from the shower was delivered in a weak trickle. Room would benefit from a few drawers/shelves for items of clothing. Hotel would benefit from a lift.
