The Hotel


Traditional rooms in our 19th-century hotel

Enjoy the cosy Scottish comfort of the Ulbster Arms Hotel

Originally built in 1878 as a family home, the hotel has 13 ensuite rooms, several of which overlook the River Thurso or the impressive stone-built Halkirk church and clock tower. In our main hotel building you can enjoy traditional comforts: high-quality furniture, the choice of a bath or a shower in your ensuite, complimentary toiletries and tea and coffee making facilities which include locally baked biscuits. Free wifi is available in all rooms - as you would expect from one of the top-rated hotels in Caithness.

Our hotel accommodation includes four premium double bedrooms, five standard doubles, four small doubles and one family room that has both a double and a single bed. Breakfast is the full Scottish number, as well as fresh fruit, juice, yoghurt and cereal. Free parking is available at the rear of the hotel.
