Disliked: Cleanliness
Good central location. Unfortunately the decor and the rooms were a bit tired looking. Our room was quite scruffy. The carpet had a nasty looking stain beside the bed and the bathroom needed some maintenance.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The reception/management staff make up for a lot. In the room was a lovely ‘tipple’ left for us which we think was port, cute touch but we didn’t take it up. I’d imagine when it was built it was in its hay day, it’s quite dated now but in this particular case it adds to the charm. The on site restaurant is the BEST place to eat in Wick. Not kidding either, the rest of Wick is very run down with a lot of shop closures and boarded up windows. It seems to be in a depression right now.
