Bank Guesthouse Wick Reviews

You can Bank on it Apr 16, 2017
This is a great place to stay in Wick – you can Bank on it! In fact, it used to be part of a Bank. A very grand one judging by the grand staircase that greets you just inside the entrance. The Bank Guest house is owned and managed by William and Angela who are really very nice. William is a Fireman and is usually there in the evenings. Hannah works form home and looks after daughter Holly.

William made me feel very welcome when I first arrived. He helped my take my bags up the stairs and then he showed me the best part of staying with his family. There is a bottle of port and glasses in every room. Get in there! I liked this feature so much that I had to replace the bottle twice during my stay of several days. (You can just see the port in one of the photos).

My room was really nice. I had the largest bedroom and slept on the larger bed. Pure comfort. Combines with my efficient bathroom, furniture, desk, wardrobe and great TV – I had a great experience. And all the port I drank made it even better.

William & Hannah produce a fantastic cooked breakfast each morning. I had a lovely dish of Scottish salmon and eggs one morning. The breakfast room can also be used for your takeaway meals in the evening or just socialising with the hi­fi and any drinks you bring in. this is actually a very smart move on their part. Food smells stay in the dining room so your room smells fresh. And the plump bedding and towels keep smelling fresh.

The location is perfect. Wick is a small place and you can easily walk within 5 minutes to the flowing:

- Restaurants, pubs and stores selling alcohol

- Full grocery store and newsagents

- A gym with a pool (small fee payable)

- A Whiskey Distillery (with tours!)

- Every other shop in town

- The world’s shortest street and the harbour

- Train station & hospital (you have to drive to the airport)

The guesthouse is right on the main road, but high up. Only once when I slept in slightly did I faintly hear a few cars. There is not a lot of traffic in Wick. At night it is absolutely silent.

Bank Guest House has 3 Stars from the Scottish Tourist Board and many recommendations like this one. It only has 4 bedrooms – so book early to avoid disappointment.
