Weddings at Mackays Hotel

Mackays Hotel is a licensed civil wedding venue and we can offer civil or religious services in the hotel. Your wedding reception can be a simple and very intimate affair in one of our smaller rooms, or grand and impressive in our large suite. Our ballroom is the perfect setting for a sumptuous feast seating up to 150, and accommodating up to 220 for an evening reception.


Back to Wick and Mackays Hotel for a couple of nights. And not disappointed, as before, a lovely friendly welcome from the proprietor and given the room above the shortest street in the world (Ebeneezer Place, see Guinness Book of Records). Room splendid, food great, beer excellent, wine ditto, pleasant and helpful. Will be back again soon, a real home from home. Thanks to the Lamont family!
