Very nice hotel, with good staff. Room was extremely large with plenty of room. The bed was very comfy and had tea/coffee making facilities. Large TV wall mounted, but we didn't watch it as signal wasn't great. Unfortunately having been in NW Scotland for over a week now, this didn't surprise us in the least in fact we'd got used...

This was a nice, friendly hotel and the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was described as being small but it was actually a more than acceptable size with a comfortable bed and a nice view over the gardens and perfectly clean. We ate dinner at the hotel; unfortunately they had run out of...

Really lovely staff, superb black pudding starter at dinner, good whisky selection. Location is wonderful- so close to Melvich beach which is beautiful. The hotel is very easy to find as it is just as you come into Melvich.

The room we were in was described as a small double if that was small the others must have beed huge. Clean modern comfortable room. Food good but menu limited could benifit with some plainer dishes eg fish and chips or steak pie somthing like that. Over all an enjoyable stay.

Arriving for one nights stay we over shot the hotel as the Melvich Hotel Sign only seems visible arriving from Thurso Area ( East ) and not from the west. This didn't cause us a problem as we stopped of at a little pub a few miles further down. shared a swift one with the locals and got put back...

Location: sea-view, but pretty distant from it. The hotel, FROM THE OUTSIDE, is nice and CHARACTERISTIC; with a BEAUTIFUL GARDEN, very well looked after. What a shame that, as soon as we went beyond the reception and traversed the HALLWAYS, all CHARM VANISHED and we were struck by an PIERCING STINK OF MOISTURE!!! I guess it’s because of the omnipresent...

We stayed here on our way to Orkney and it was lovely. The staff were very attentive, helpful and really made us feel welcome. The room was lovely and clean with stunning views when the weather permitted. The restaurant was very very good, it was a shame they only had one of the Sole specials left when we sat down...

We made this our base for a day trip to Orkney and it was perfect. We enjoyed the large room and bath, as well as the friendly staff and good hot breakfasts. Although they say hot food is prepared starting at 7:30, they were kind enough to make us hot breakfasts earlier so we could catch the ferry.
