We had 1 night here as part of a large, organised group. Our room was over the road in a newly refurbished annex. It was very clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom and large shower. Our evening meal was a tasty, ample cold buffet with soup to start and dessert after. Breakfast was VERY early (6am) before we headed...

We booked this at the last minute and arrived when it was dark. We were told we had been upgraded to one of the better rooms but it was across the road in the annex. If this was one of the better rooms, Id be scared to stay in the main building! It was small, looked out on to a...

Just an overnight stay, but we were made very welcome. Our room was "across the road" in the newly refurbished annex. The room was clean and comfortable. The double bed was quite small, may even have been only 3/4, but there was also a single bed in the room so at 1am I left my wife snoring in the larger...

This was our last night's accommodation on our North Coast 500 tour. We booked the hotel in advance and, being John 'o Groats, we did not have high expectations - fortunately. We attempted to check in late afternoon whilst there was a wake in full swing in the bar. As the staff were busy taking money in the bar we...

If you want to be right at the sign post of John O'Groats then this is the closest. However it was a budget basic place charged at expensive rate. On check in and anytime you wanted assistance you felt you were being a pest. We stayed in room 20. It did have a sea view and was across the way...

The cleanliness of the bunkroom is a let down. seems like no one has been staying in the room for quite a long time as I can see dead toilet bugs in the bathtube. Not worth the price paid for. The best of the hotel is probably the food though.

Stayed for one night. The room was clean and the shower was really good. We also had food in the pub, I didn't think that was too great but my husband thought his was ok. Breakfast was nice enough though. I don't think we got any smiles from those who work at the Seaview which was disappointing.

There is very little accommodation options in John O'Groats and this would be the most affordable. Basically it's a pub with restaurant and an accommodation block immediately across the road with various room types. My double room was sufficiently large enough, clean and comfortable, don't expect a sea view from this block! There is plenty of places to park a...

You can't miss it at the junction but nothing much moves overnight so nice and quiet. The sea view is quite a way off but John 'O Groats centre a short walk away. Very comfortable and a good shower. Dinner very good, breakfast poor.
