The Bank House is a beautiful big house which Irene and Paul Hart beautifully decorated. They make you feel very welcome and are the mostly friendly hosts that you can imagine, very accessible and helpful. I had a marvellous bedroom which was huge also for a couple, with ensuite bathroom. The standards of cleanliness are very high, and the breakfast... More

We had a HUGE bedroom with ensuite bathroom which was bigger that some bedrooms we have encountered in other B&Bs. This is a beautiful house, exceedingly tastefully decorated with high standards of cleanliness and in an great location. Excellent breakfast and very welcoming owners. Would definitely use again.

Paul and Irene Hart provide a wonderful at home experience for all guests. Their accommodations are clean and well kept, the food excellent, the location convenient to all area activities, and they personally are most friendly and accessible. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and will return.

I knew of The Bank House, having previously booked a group of golfers there several years ago, but I had never stayed there myself until now. I booked the small room above the kitchen, which was perfect for my needs, as I had come to Dornoch to play golf. Breakfast is somewhat unique in that all the guests sit a... More

No need to look further this B&B is ideal; central location, clean, large rooms and very good value. We would both highly recommend The Bank House to our friends and would not hesitate to return. We stayed one night here and one night at the Dornoch Castle. The Bank House was much cleaner, quieter and much, much better value. Room... More

It's a long way to travel to Dornoch, but the golf course and members of Royal Dornoch make it all worthwhile. Top 2 in Scotland on my list, and The Bank BnB is a great place to stay. Your hostess is a champion golfer and looks after you brilliantly. I had a big room with bath to soak in after... More

Visiting Dornoch to play golf at one of the World's finest links is a bit like a pilgrimage. A long journey through wonderful countryside and at the end you need a relaxing and comfortable place to stay. This fits the bill perfectly. Super luxury accommodation. Relieve the aching joints after golf in jacuzzi style bath and sleep in large comfy... More

Having tried several other B&Bs in Dornoch, our group would no longer seek to book anywhere else. This is (by some distance) the friendliest place we have stayed in Dornoch, so much so we booked up for next year on the spot while we were checking out. The rooms are excellent, all very large and well appointed and our room... More
