Been going for years to see family and nothing beats walking the dog on Brora beach first thing in the morning. Great food, and lovely welcome and we love sitting in front of that amazing fireplace. Thank you!

A small way in which I can repay many years of quality service at the Royal Marine, I have been staying annually end of May for between 7 and 10 days. As you would expect repeat customers are often made a fuss off, however, it is the understated way in which our needs are met rather than fuss that brings... More

We stayed in the Links Apartments which are let through the elegant Royal Marine Hotel In Brora. Situated a short distance from the hotel, these self catering apartments are well equipped. Ours had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large hall with storage space and a spacious kitchen / dining and sitting room. We opted for one with splendid view over... More

Stayed at one of the Links Villas, wonderful relaxing stay. Pool and Spa facilities were great. Villa was very modern and comfortable. Beautiful beach view and we were lucky enough to enjoy some lovely weather. Would definitely recommend.

Very charming hotel. We enjoyed our one night stay! The room was wonderfully decorated with lots of nice details. The bed was very comfortable and we had a good nights sleep! The bathroom was very nice with a tub and shower and in excellent working order. The rate was a little pricey for one night but it was worth it... More

Great place to stop over. Staff are excellent, food is the best for miles around. Rooms are clean comfortable and good value. Fantastic walks along the coast and a lovely beach, great golf course beside the hotel. Just perfect for a wee break!

Had a lovely room overlooking the front of the hotel. Golf course is just round the corner, a two minute walk. Although we couldn't see the sea you could hear the waves lapping the shore from our room. Our room was very comfortable. Before dinner we sat at the log fire with a pre dinner drink. Lots of wood and... More

I have read some of the comments about the apartments at the Royal Marine being a bit care worn and that has made me realise that we probably did the correct thing by taking the "Master" one of the "Master rooms" in the main body of the old hotel building. Old style quality through and through with obliging and unobtrusive... More

We stayed 2 nights here with a tour group. The main hotel is a lovely, classic building. I felt is should have Whisky and a cigar in the lobby! Lots of wood and leather--really comfortable and timeless. I cannot speak to the hotel rooms, however, as several of us were given apartments in the "annex". So, we ended up with... More
