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

Not much to add to all the other great reviews other than to say that Golf View is a lovely B&B and your hosts, Bill and Sue, are very welcoming and helpful. Many thanks. NB As others report, Room 5 is very comfortable and spacious and has great views. PS We had an excellent meal at Greens Market Restaurant.

I stayed in Tain for two night last July as I was making a golf tour of Scotland and the Netherlands. I stopped at Golf View House upon my return from the continent. Bill is an avid golfer with intimate knowledge of the course at Tain. When I asked about food he recommended the Curry Club which is only a... More

After arriving late in the evening, I was given a friendly welcome and made to feel at home in an instance. The couple running this place couldn't be friendlier. It was a pleasure to stay here, and would recommend it to anyone. In a way, it was as if I was in a home away from home, Just what I... More

We stayed there for a night during a driving trip. It was everything we needed. Welcoming and helpful owners, a nice clean room, a fantastic breakfast. I would try to go back to see Tain and enjoy the Golf View House again!
