We stayed overnight. I didn't realise this was a teaching hotel prior to booking and I would think the staff were fab. The room was large and comfortable. The breakfast was a tasty. We had a walk around the grounds and hotel and it really is making progress to be thought of as a potential for a stunning wedding location.... More

Absolutely great. No faults whatsoever. Courteous staff. Not expensive. Can't wait to return shortly. Idyllic setting . So near the town centre and glorious beach. Dornoch is a perfect joliday resort in the highlands. I would also recommend the butchers there.

Our golf tour operator booked this property as the usual hotel was booked up. It turns out it is a training facility for the University of the Highlands and Islands hotel management program. The staff were all young but tremendously eager. You couldn't ask for better motivated people. There are only a minimum number of rooms so we received almost... More

I stayed overnight at Burghfield house with my husband and family. What thoughtful, considerate staff. This is a teaching hotel and I would give the staff top marks. We were greeted in the rooms with top quality teas and coffees and delicious cookies. The rooms were large and ours had a view of the 13th.C. cathedral. Right now construction is... More

We stopped in to have afternoon tea recently. We had sandwiches and a scone and various cakes. We also had home made jam and cream. It was nice enough but not as tasty as it was last time we were there last year. I would still recommend it. The staff were very friendly.

What a fabulous place to stay. Huge room. Friendly and informative staff. Great breakfast. Excellent value for money. Can't wait to stay again. The only disappointment, was we'd only booked the one night.

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
