Went out here specifically for lunch...note saying 'no lunch today' asked inside they said 'chef is busy with paperwork' we will be open for dinner though..unbelievable that paperwork can take precedence over food service

My girlfriend and I came to stay on the night of the 26th. We were met by a very friendly chap. Infact, all the staff we met during our stay were very friendly. The gentleman was manning reception and the bar, so he was clearly busy but still met us with a smile and offered to carry our bags up... More

Got to laugh when people give a bad review who haven't even eaten or stayed in a place,just because they couldn't get a table! Stayed here for two nights recently and it was very nice. Staff very welcoming, room comfortable and a homely bar. But the best thing about this hotel is the food. The fish is the best I've... More

Two of us dropped in to the Eagle on Sunday night 19/10/14 at about 6:45pm and asked for a table for two. We were asked if we had booked and I said no. I was then told they were only serving bookings (???) Two tables were being set up in the empty bar, I assumed they were fully booked. We... More

Walked in at 7.03pm ... 3 people in the bar.... asked if they served food. Answer ( with a smirk from the barmaid) we are fully booked!!!!! Walked past an hour later to see it was just as " busy". Guess they don't need the business albeit there were only 3 of us.

Have stayed in a few hotels in Dornoch and decided to give the Eagle a go. I always have a bar meal there when staying elsewhere so I thought I'd try it. It was dreadful. The room was next to an upstairs fire exit which was left open all the time, I assume for smokers. The carpets were filthy, wallpaper... More

Stayed here for a few days while golfing at Tain. rooms are nothing special but do the job. This place shines when it came to the food and the bar. I stayed 2 nights and both breakfasts and evening meals were great. People were friendly and Staff were great too.

I had heard reports, read reviews and on a previous occasion visited and after a long journey looked forward to sampling the food at the Eagle Hotel. The sample menu and board outside extolled their selections, the boards behind the bar advertised their specials; rib-eye or rump, decisions, decisions. There were plenty of staff on duty, there weren't that many... More

The eagle is a great wee pub, food is very good, but will agree with a lot of other reviewers, that you can go in, the place is half empty, yet they tell you you could have a long wait! Is the kitchen too small to deal with the number of covers? Are they short staffed all the time? We've... More
