Never stayed in the hotel just had an evening meal. We were the only people in the place and the owner was really friendly and so was the barman. The food was ok, but nothing more. If i was to be honest I would not stop to eat there again and that is because the food was just ok.

Thank you very much for the friendliness compliments. Obviously, your opinion is important and because it is, after quite a lot of research, it would seem that the only feasible date that you stopped in was the 11th November 2014, which was a Tuesday evening, for a Panini and a couple of Cokes. Please correct me if I am wrong.... More

Booked here over the phone, on short notice, with no fuss. We were on a cycle between Thurso and Inverness and this was our stop over point. Arrived in the early evening and got a friendly welcome and were offered a place to store the bikes over night. As others have mentioned there are no en-suite facilities (the room did... More

I booked this hotel purely on spec as I was working up there for a day. What a find. The hotel is simple ,and it is not fancy. It is clean, warm and welcoming. There are no en-suites but there are good clean bathrooms, and a shower room. The bedrooms are warm and clean. The best thing about the hotel... More

Second visit to this great wee hotel with a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Food is excellent and served in generous quantities! Full Scottish breakfast on hand whenever you want it. Rooms are basic but perfectly adequate and kept very clean. Would recommend a stop over if travelling north on the A9. Will hopefully be back!

Great food and a fine selection of drinks in a charming old hotel ideally situated on the A9 in Golspie. A lovely ambience and attentive and pleasant staff as well as friendly locals! Friday night is a must for music and banter! Many thanks to Des ( manager) keep up the good work!

I stayed again at this hotel all my comments still stand but I wish to add some info for fellow mountain bikrs. They have a hose you can wash your bike down with and offer secure storage. Also they have a fresh water spring for filling up your bottles camelbak etc. A great wee place to stay.

Have to mention that £200 was accidently left on the breakfast table during my stay at the Ben bhraggie hotel Scotland ( don't ask), and I was very grateful when the owner ran out waving her arms with this money I had left ,because in about another twenty seconds I would have been heading up the road oblivious of my...

I spent 2 days at the Ben Bhraggie Hotel when travelling up to Scotland for a short holiday with a group of friends. Des (the owner) is extremely helpful and she really went the extra mile to make sure our stay was a pleasant one. Both nights we ate at the downstairs restaurant the food was superb. Great hearty Scottish... More

I stayed for a night while up working in the area. Des and her staff were spot on and I had a good evening in the bar with the locals. It is not the Ritz nor does it charge Ritz prices.You get what's on the tin which is fine in my book. I will be staying there again next time... More

We stayed here as part of the Lejog journey, and on arrival were confused as to where to check in, as you have to walk through the restaurant, but rang the bell and the friendly lady came and showed us to our room. The room was very basic, which is fine as we had been camping for most of our... More
