The hotel was really comfortable with a freshly cooked full Scottish breakfast topped off a great trip. Just a short walk to a world class golf course. What more could anyone want. If you are playing at Royal Dornoch there are worse places to stay than here.

Stayed for 1 night during a short visit to the area. We had a large double room which also had 2 fold down beds for our teenagers. The Hotel is small with large rooms and it is a teaching hotel. It has an interesting history as a family home and also used by officers during the war. The room was... More

Recently as Chairman of the Easter Ross branch of the Federation of Small Business, my committee and I hosted one of our regular meetings at the hotel to support our Sutherland colleagues. The function room we used for our business meeting was ideal. It was a horrible night outside which made the warm and comfortable room all the more appealing.... More

As a group of 6 - 8 golfers which has been visiting Dornoch for nearly forty years we are familiar with The Burghfield in its old form and its new. We stopped going to the "old" when poor became intolerable. Before its transformation into the North Highland College, it made Fawlty Towers seem like the Savoy. The jerry-built annex has... More

This hotel approaches perfection for the price. Our room was big with balcony view over the sea. Biscuits and hot chocolate etc on offer in room. Bath and shower. Staff with great attitude and amazing choice at breakfast. A training hotel with the Uniersity of the Highlands and Islands and so everything is close to perfect. Quick short cut into... More

We have just enjoyed a lovely 2-night stay in the fantastic Burghfield House in Dornoch. Although the hotel is run as "training" hotel for the North Highland College, you would never know from the levels of service on offer. The staff were not only professional and helpful, they were diligent, friendly and personable at all times. We dined in the... More

If any charm there is, it's to be had here. The rooms are spacious and comfortable; breakfast runs the gamut of tastes. The building itself is grand and historic. The staff-in-training are very efficient. Wifi very sporadic on my Apple device here and in the rest of town, had to go to Tain for a good connection. The only drawback... More

The Burghfield House is a nice hotel and school for students studying the travel and lodging industry. The rooms are nice sized and clean. Breakfasts are huge and very well prepared with a large selection. Service by the students is attentive and very good. Location in Dornoch is well placed for visiting NE Scotland. The biggest shortfall is that access... More
