John o Groats is in general a quiet and isolated place so this hotel was is a decent place to stay. It was really important that we could dine & drink some beers and beverages at the same place. You won’t find luxury but a nice safe room to rest and a nice place to have your breakfast lunch and dinner!

Left a day early.
Sea view? All we had was 3’ square wall view in a dark and dingy hostel type room. The bed was creaky and uncomfortable. Food was ok. Staff pleasant. Will not use this hostel type hotel again.
