The restoration of the iconic former John O’Groats Hotel is part of Natural Retreats’ multi-million pound regeneration of this stunningly picturesque natural wilderness in Caithness in the North of Scotland making it a wonderful UK getaway for family, friends and couples alike.
Originally built in 1875, the iconic former hotel has been carefully restored over the last two years and has a brand new Norse style extension which injects a vivid splash of colour against this rugged coastal landscape. Courtesy of interior design agency NoChintz, the interior combines high quality and new styling in harmony with the marriage of the historic former hotel and the eye-catching new extension.
The Inn boasts bespoke self-catering apartments with 1, 2 or 4 bedrooms, each with their own individual character and with the high quality one would expect from Natural Retreats. Mattresses are all British made with 1,400 springs – ensuring an uninterrupted night’s sleep for even the most troubled of sleepers. Catering perfectly for those completing the famous Lands’ End to John O’Groats ‘End to End’ challenge, The Inn provides the perfect end point.
All apartments at The Inn feature luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms with a variety of viewpoints offering breath-taking views of the dramatic John O’Groats coastal scenery across Pentland Firth onto Stroma and the Orkneys. Those west facing rooms also enjoy spectacular sunset views, and each apartment is finished using locally sourced material wherever possible, incorporating Caithness stone and Scottish larch timber, for example.
