The Royal Marine is a beautiful period hotel near the centre of Brora. It's location is perfect: just off the A9 which runs through Brora and 5 minutes walk to beautiful beaches, the golf course, the station and the town centre. We stayed in a classic room which was reasonably spacious, had good quality decor and a large bathroom. There... More

We stayed just for a night but in great luxury in the Lynx View Apartments, some little way from the hotel itself. These are fully fitted out as holiday cottages with a great view of the golf course, as the name suggests, but also the 'northern' beach and a stunning view of the North Eastern coast towards Helmsdale and beyond....

We had booked this hotel for the weekend of our friends wedding as the reception was being held there. I have to say it has been exceptional! The hotel was decorated in a way that enhanced the original features but didn't modernise it in a way that detracted from the simplicity. Staff were welcoming and helpful and certainly added to...

We booked this dog friendly hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is a few yards from the beach and local golf course so wonderful for the dog. Good sized rooms with large bathroom. The whole house has a feel of Arts and crafts style architecture. Very comfortable, nice rooms to have a coffee or the local distillery Clynelish malt. The... More

The main hotel is a lovely old building with great wooden panelling and nice sitting areas. The staff were helpful and friendly but somehow the atmosphere was just a little stuffy. There were two restaurants with very different menus and prices so make sure you choose what suits you. I did try food from both but was a little underwhelmed... More

A place that makes you think you are about to star in an Agatha Christie novel: the building a splendid early 20th Century lodge, the decorative slant naturally towards the beautiful Links course next door, dark wood, leather armchairs, a sprinkling of middle-aged to elderly guests. But all is calm, well run and without murder on our stay, two nights... More

Having stayed at 3 other Scottish hotels that were rather disappointing this one was a breath of fresh air ! The bedroom was nicely decorated in light pastel colours with a comfortable bed. The spa was good and the food was excellent and the cost was less than at the others. Highly recommended.
