We arrived in Thurso early afternoon and checked with the information centre on the best hotels in Thurso. She showed us where the hotels were and checked with Trip advisor on the reviews on each one. The Pentland Hotel came up as being the better hotel, We went in and the receptionist was very friendly and promptly booked us in for the night. We found the room easily. The room and the bathroom were a good size. It was in a good position on the side of the hotel opposite the church. The bell tolled every hour, but that wasn't a problem. The television was a little dated, it was a portable with a little freeview box. We enquired about wi-fi, but that was only available in the reception. The reception lounge was a very comfortable place, with lots of comfy sofas and chairs.
Thurso doesnt have many restaurants, the Pentland had a nice restaurnat, but we chose to go to Le Bristro which was very popular. My husband had the lamb sausages, but they werent very "lamby". We think though that this caused offence when we commented on it. I had a lovely steak which was expensive
Breakfast was very good. All the breakfasts were cooked to order and were exceptionally good. The waitress was chatty and made us feel very welcome.
We would definitely stay here again if were ever in the area.
