    Customer service needs improvement

    Suits it’s name as when staff constantly said NO to any of our requests we asked Y Not!

    Not what we expected but still good!

    We were very disappointed on arrival to be told that there wasn’t a room for us due to maintenance issues but we would be put on a house that consisted on 2 en-suite bedrooms and a kitchen. No living room or eating area. There wasn’t much we could do about it. I was very disappointed that we were not in the hotel with the bar and restaurant just downstairs and there was no eating area in the self catering house that we were offered but it was modern, very clean, great showers and the Y-not were helpful when we frquested more towels and some ice.

    Disappointed that the tv was not working - I was told it would be sorted out but nothing actually happened. I felt a bit fobbed off. Very noisy … Good points .. very clean.. and that’s it. However in shall never stay here again.

    Was a nice enough hotel but was charged twice after a staff did not register me paying when I first arrived. Website also said ‘1 double bed’ but all of the rooms are single beds. The food however made the night, 10/10 couldn’t fault it.

    Good place, very tired town.

    The y not does excellent food, service is good, albeit Monday morning was busy for breakfast with very few staff and thus a long wait for a lukewarm breakfast. Room was nice and spacious, shower room very new but view was non existent. Thurso is a grey, depressing place which is slowly crumbling. Y not did well with what they have. The bar/ dining area is noisy with constant fairly loud music. Room was quietish but a compressor went constantly and hindered sleep.

    Clean comfortable hotel with a good restaurant.

    Comfortable bed. Decent sized room. Good food. Excellent breakfast. Stayed here before catching ferry to Orkney and it is very conveniently located for the ferry port.

    The rooms at Y-not were comfortable and clean, the staff in the restaurant area were as helpful as could be and friendly. Only downside to this Inn is its owner, there was a faulty fire alarm at 4am on the night we were staying, the SECOND faulty fire alarm in two weeks at this Inn. And although the owner actually turned up this time to reset the box (the fire department couldn't get hold of anyone the first time), she didn't look at any guest stood outside or apologise without being sought out by us, after we had been stood outside for 45mins. While they did give full refunds and late check out this was only due to it being requested, again not offered with an apology by the owner. If it was not for this experience I would happily stay again.

    Ok hotel with lots of free parking

    The hotel was fine - fairly basic and generic hotel but did the job. Bar/Restaurant downstairs and a bar next door also. Lots of easy free parking and big supermarket right opposite.
