Very comfortable hotel in Wick. The bistro is exceptionally good quality for dinner with local produce. Rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is excellent . Strongly recommended. And to top it all off , the hotel is on the “shortest street” in the world!!!

Our Dog-Friendly Hotel in Scotland Policy

Enjoy a stay in our apartments with your four-legged friend!

We are a pet-friendly hotel in Scotland. We are pleased to welcome dogs at a charge of £25 per dog, per stay. Our apartments are equipped to keep 1 small or medium dog per flat.  To ensure the appropriate allocation of pet-friendly apartments, it is a must that you let us know, at the time of your reservation, that you wish to bring your dog along. Otherwise, you may be disappointed if we aren’t able to accommodate your pet.

Dogs are very welcome in our bar area and the foyer of Mackays Hotel. Pets must not be left in apartments unaccompanied. They must be kept on a lead at all times when in the hotel. Please keep your pet on the floor. Allowing him/her to jump on furniture and beds will cause extra cleaning charges. We do request that they are not left unaccompanied in rooms, lest damage is done, or other guests are disturbed by noise.  We reserve the right to charge for any damage or extra cleaning required.
