My wife and son and I stayed in Links Apartment #19 for 5 nights in June 2015. What can I say, the accommodations were outstanding. The apartment was very clean, beds were comfy and the living area spacious. The view of the Brora Golf course and the North Sea are just spectacular. We did not do any cooking in the... More

I had high expectations that weren't met. The hotel was the most expensive for accommodation that we paid while on our trip through Scotland. It didn't offer value for money. The room was spacious, warm and comfortable but starting to be a little tired. Service was poor. The kids serving were inexperienced and didn't appear to have been given any... More

Originally built as a private country house in the early 1900’s the Royal Marine Hotel is situated amidst glorious coastal scenery in the Scottish Highlands, approximately one hour north of Inverness. The hotel is close to an old links golf course and a sandy beach, and include three restaurants and a fitness center with a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, spa, and... More

We as a group stayed in the apartments next to the main hotel, they are excellently finished and extremely comfortable. We used the swimming facilities within the hotel and dined in the main restaurant (a little expensive). All in all a lovely stay in a beautiful coastal location.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights as part of a land tour (a group of 22) of Scotland. The staff handled the registration, room assignments and delivery of luggage smoothly.

A long postponed visit to see an elderly cousin in Sutherland, Scotland, led to us look at a number of hotels in the area for a three night stay. It wasn't an easy exercise but we eventually selected the Royal Marine Hotel in Brora. This was partially based on recommendations but, more specifically, on an unusually co-operative receptionist who fielded... More

Rather than raving on about how excellent this hotel is all afternoon, I thought that it would be easier if I mentioned the pitfalls. Only problem is there are none to mention. The hotel manager in particular and his staff are professional and attentive to your every needs. The character of the accommodation is charming and sympathetically decorated, but though... More

This is a comfortable hotel, with a choice of rooms: the better ones even offer a (distant) sea view. Even though we stayed here "off season", there was no noticeable limit in service: the hotel has a very service-minded staff and excellent food! The indoor swimming pool, nearby Highland mountains and sea - and the golf course, of course -... More
