Apart from a fantastic setting, we were extremely disappointed with our stay at the Dornie Hotel. From the outside, the building looked in great condition but once inside it was a different story. From the cramped reception, we could see into the residents lounge which although light and airy, the sofas and chairs looked tired. We rang the bell and... More

We stayed one night here on a visit to Eilean Donan. Room had en suite but it was very basic. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Location is incredible but what really blew me away was the food. We had the seafood platter and it was fantastic. Breakfast the next morning was also superb.

After reading other reviews we must have had the worst room there. The bed was so bad the first night, I slept on top of the comforter the next night in order to have some padding. The room was marginal for 2 people and the shower was very tight. However, the hosts were friendly and breakfast was great.

Stayed the night whilst hillwalking. Room basic and hotel a bit run down but as a 2-star and at £35 for the night no issue. Ate in the bar and food was very good and had good basic local fare. Fish and chips excellent. Had to leave sharp on Sunday but was served and ate breakfast and checked out in... More

Love this hotel! Stayed here two times already. Excellent staff, they had our breakfast ready at 7 o'clock, even though normally, they start serving at 8. The food is really really good! And not expensive at all. The rooms are neat and clean, with an excellent price-quality ratio. Also, it is situated beautifully. I love this hotel.

I wish I could leave five stars .... the food was absolutely delicious and well worth a visit. Chips to die for .... and Dornie burger excellent! A pity that the waitress was a bit surly, but that wouldn't prevent me going again.

Remember that Dornie is known mostly for it's proximity to the Isle of Skye and the Eilean Donan Castle annoy tourism itself and it wil will easy to accept thing this is the best opt on in town both for value and friendliness. I wouldn't agree with the reviewer who described the accomodation as 'perfectly adequate ' but the feel... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in late December 2014 and found the hotel to be perfectly adequate for our needs. After reading some of the reviews we approached our stay with a little trepidation but after staying there we felt that the Dornie Hotel was an excellent choice and would recommend it to others. We had come to Dornie... More
