Central hotel in Thurso
The Pentland hotel was fine for a one night stay. Our room was clean and tidy, but we felt the hotel, overall, was a bit tired and dated. Overall, it was good value for money, with a good cooked breakfast on offer.

4/10 Fair

This hotel was not good, our room had a roasting radiator with the thermostat broken and lying on the floor so windows had to be open to control heat so disturbed by traffic. Radiator in bathroom didn’t work, no hot water in shower. Advised reception told it would be dealt with returned later to no evidence of anything being repaired. Reception said we could move room this one was slightly better. Breakfast was dreadful and over cooked. Second morning we ate breakfast out. Staff were not very friendly or helpful and the hotel just looked tired it is in need of an upgrade. Overall disappointed.

Good stay
The check in process was easy, the lady on the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and equipped with everything we needed for out stay. The bed was very small for a double though. Breakfast was a buffet had everything we needed but there wasn't enough to go around all the guests of the cooked items.
