We were very lucky to find this lovely guest house by chance. It was a very pleasant surprise and proved to be just what we wanted. Everywhere was immaculate and there was a very homely feel, Bill was so friendly and welcoming. Hopefully returning in September if they have a vacancy,

Beautiful house, great choices for breakfast, in beautiful Tain. Bill is a great host, very helpful and eager to chat. Castles, distilleries and the Royal Dornoch golf course are a few minutes away. Dornoch itself is very quaint, with great antique shops. Our room was very elegant and comfortable, with a very spacious bathroom, looking very Scottish and attractive in... More

On arrival we were greeted by Bill who showed us to our immaculate room, décor to a high standard, the bathroom was large and spotless. The property is a lovely old fashioned stone house with a view down to the sea and well maintained lawn. Nice lounge area for guests to use and the breakfast in the morning was delicious.... More

As someone who travels on business a lot I can highly recommend the golf view house. This is the 2nd time I have stayed here, and on both occasions I have received a warm welcome. The rooms are spotless and have all that you require. The bathrooms are large and up to 5 star quality. The breakfast was faultless,

I stayedwith fellow golfers in June 2014 for 3 nights at Golf View House. I echo the comments of others that the B&B is spacious and spotless, the welcome warm and the breakfast very good. That said, while rooms 3, 4 and 5 have normal sized beds and are rooms with lovely views, rooms 1 and 2 are at the... More

Thank you for your review. You forgot to mention that you are six foot five tall! Most people with special requirements would contact us in advance. The FREE wifi functions perfectly in certain areas of the house(the walls are four feet thick) Why didn't you ask?!?! More

This is an old manse I gather. Our room was vast and the bathroom to die for! I can't remember when I last had such splendour in a hotel bedroom. It was matched by its comfort too and the welcome and food were equally good. Too bad we only had one night and an early departure to catch the ferry.

We were a golfing party of 4. Location ideal for a Northern golfing tour (Brora, Golspie, Dornoch and Tain). Rooms were spotless and of a high standard (as was the well maintained house and large gardens). Good value for money especially given the standard of breakfast. Bill and Sue were very accommodating hosts and we would highly recommend this excellent... More

Mixed feelings on our stay. I booked four of us in for three nights as the first half a Highlands golf week. We arrived early evening as advised we would and were wet through having played en route in the rain - to GOLF View House. The building and grounds were most impressive, clean, well maintained. The welcome was a... More

Bit bizarre and contradictory but good to note that the rooms were clean & tidy, the breakfast was good and we are good value for money. Pity you couldn't speak up when you were here! More

Golf View, Tain is perfectly situated if you want to experience the many top golf courses in the Dornoch Firth region. You will not find better or more friendly hosts. Bill and Sue are very welcoming, the home has been lovingly restored and modernised without losing its period charm. We stayed 4 nights in room 2 which did not have... More
