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

The room we stayed in was immaculately clean, very spacious and full of period features, decorated in a cosy, warm manner. The breakfast which is served in opulent surroundings was the best we have had due to the highest quality and homemade products, the freshly made potato scones were delicious and the bread was gorgeous. Breakfast actually did fill us... More

We holiday in Dornoch every year but this is the first time we have visited the Burghfield House for a meal. They serve a fabulous Sunday lunch - two courses for £9 95 or three courses for £12 95. The food was absolutely sumptuous in beautiful surroundings. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the whole experience was wonderful!... More

I visited Dornoch for a wedding and Burghfield House was one of the suggested hotels. I'm really glad I decided to stay there as the room was both spaceous and comfortable, the breakfast excellent and the staff friendly and efficient. I'm already looking forward to returning.

We made a last minute booking at this hotel and were pleasantly surprised. Very easy to find the hotel only 1 hour drive from Inverness. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by a young gentleman who showed us up to our room. Beautiful huge bedroom we stayed in room 1. It was finished with nice Scottish touches and pink... More

4 of us were booked in for a golf trip overnight stay. We all thought it was great. Amazing staff, really friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and very spacious, really nice style throughout. Breakfast was outstanding! Local and fresh produce including home made jams. Can't fault the place at all! We really enjoyed it. Would love to go... More
