The hotel, located in the fishing village of Castletown, is 6 km from Thurso on the A836. It enjoys a central setting in Caithness and thus allows the visitor to explore and enjoy the most northerly mainland county: the wildlife, the coastal walks, trips over on the ferry to Orkney for a day's sightseeing, surfing in one of the best bays in the UK, or the more traditional attractions of the Castle Of Mey. And the beautiful sandy beach of Dunnet Bay is a stone's throw away from the hotel.
All rooms have been recently upgraded and come with an en suite bathroom with bathtub or shower, free view TV, a hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities. Furthermore, a radio, Internet access, a king-size or double bed and individually adjustable heating are provided in all accommodation as standard.
There are cards, chess, cribbage, dominoes, a pool table and darts available for guests' use. Thurso golf club is only 6 km away.
The hotel offers a breakfast buffet and lunch and dinner may be chosen from a set menu. Locally-sourced produce and good traditional home cooking are the hallmarks of the food guests may enjoy here.
