10/10 carvery dinner, delicious food, excellent service, lovely atmosphere, brilliant value for money. Would definitely recommend and will be back. Worth booking if you want to sit in the restaurant with your food, otherwise if busy you may need to eat in the bar lounge

About
Description
The Pentland Hotel is located in the central of Thurso, a small town situated on the northern coastline overlooking the Orkney Islands. Thurso's history stretches back to the time of the Vikings, More when it was once referred to as Thorsa, translated meaning 'Thor's River'. Thurso shares its famous history of the fishing industry with its neighbouring town Wick, but is also well known among surfers and kayakers who travel from all over the world to experience the swells our sea has to offer. Suitable for families and business people alike, this hotel will offer you comfortable accommodation and a warm welcome from staff. The Pentland Hotel has two lounges for conferences and a night porter available to ensure late services are accommodated to and early risers can enjoy a continental ​breakfast. Being based in the center of Thurso offers you many opportunities to not only explore the town but also enjoy the frequent public transport to explore other parts of the county. Stay at the Pentland Hotel and allow us to ensure that you experience a pleasant and enjoyable visit to the delights of the far north of Scotland. The hotel has 41 en-suite bedrooms made up of single, twin, double, triple, and family units. Each bedroom has been stylishly decorated and made to accommodate your various needs to ensure that your stay will be as comfortable and relaxed as possible. All rooms include a phone, TV with Freeview, a hairdryer, a radio alarm clock, and complimentary tea and coffee making facilities. The hotel has a large split level dining room so that smaller parties of up to 30 may enjoy extra privacy. The restaurant uses only the freshest local Caithness seafood and produce. Vegetarian choices and children's menus are also available. The reception foyer is an attractive area where guests can relax after their meal in comfort. The focus of this room is the fireplace with its carved wooden mantel on a Caithness stone hearth. We have free wi-fi in and around the reception area. Alternatively, the cosy, welcoming atmosphere of the lounge bar is an area where families can sit and where light refreshments and snacks can be eaten, in the more informal surroundings. Less
