Great value and superb views of the working harbour. The food next door was very filling! Being on the top floor, a lift would have been a bonus as my bags were very heavy and I'd had a long days riding.

Popped into The Upper Deck for dinner. Determined to have seafood I couldn't resist the steak. Expensive but the steak was really top quality. Be warned though, the portions were enormous. Felt guilty leaving so much!

Three of us had pre booked this budget hotel as we had arranged to ride our motorbikes around the NC500. We were able to park easily opposite the hotel, we were pretty tired after a 240 mile ride. On arrival we were greeted by a young lady who was extremely pleasant and had a great sense of humour - that was a great start. My room was on the ground floor and I was given the family room despite being a single. The room had been re-furbished to accommodate a wheel chair user - top marks from me. We ate (and drank) in the upstairs restaurant....all staff were local with proper accents - all staff were brilliant and the food was really good too. The hotel is close to the ferry terminal and ideally located for the NC500 (about 20 miles from JO'G). many thanks to the staff for our overnight, really enjoyable stay (This was the best place we stayed on our journey)

The room was very clean. Wide. It's far from the center, but the restaurant itself is well enough not to have to move. Highly recommended.

The hotel is very convenient especially if you have to take the ferry to go to the Orkney ISLANDS. The room was well cleaned, warm and comfortable. Both dinner and breakfast were very good and the staff were very friendly.
