Have stayed here twice, and on both occasions, I was hugely impressed with the quality of the service and lovely staff who were keen to be as helpful as possible. The views from the back-bedrooms are great, and generally there's a homely and welcoming atmosphere. It's got great character, but not ideal for anyone with limited mobility - getting my... More

We had planned to stay in Helmsdale,but there was no available accomodation. Contacted hotels in Brora and Dornoch - no luck. Kinkell could accomodate us at a price which made me beieve we had stumbled on something nice and imposing. Not a converted farm down a poorly marked lane. Our little room was comfortable, twin beds, no chair or bath.... More

Stayed at Kinkell for a friends wedding on 29th May. Everything was fabulous, the staff at the hotel were amazing, couldn't do enough and nothing was a bother. Our room was lovely with everything you need including luxury towels and bathroom toiletries(Arran Aromatics). The food at the wedding was unbelievable, possibly the best Seafood buffet for starter that I have... More

The reason I have titled my review "Baffled" is for no other reason than I'm baffled as to how this place actually survives! I have stayed at this hotel 4/5 times this year and the only person I have ever seen is a young girl who checked me in. This was after standing at reception for 5mins waiting on someone... More

This place has a great view of the Dingwall valley. Its an old farm house with a recent addition on the back to provide the hotel rooms and downstairs serving areas. Its nice with some minor plumbing issues. Pros: Great view from some rooms and restaurant. Nicely furnished and reasonable sized rooms and bathrooms. Good parking. So-So: Kind of hard... More

We stayed in this hotel due to a Family event in Muir of Ord. Apart from difficulties of finding the Hotel it was great. The Hotel seems tidy and unassuming when you approach it from the Road between a couple of houses. Once inside you have the traditional Scottish Highland feel in decor and atmosphere. The real surprise is when... More

We got off to a bad start. We couldn't find the place!! After driving around for half an hour, we spotted a small plaque in a walled access saying "Kinkell House". Nothing about any hotel, and two new dwellings either side of the access. Then we realised there was something down the access lane, so we drove down to find... More

The room was amazing. Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The food was lovely. Scenery surrounding the area is fantastic. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay there again if ever in the area.

We arrived to find we were the only guests as it opens after winter break. Despite this, the attentive but not obtrusive staff were excellent in every regard. The hotel is very well kept wth old world charm but no frayed edges - immaculate! Our room was modern, and very well appointed! We want an en-suite just like this at... More

I've stayed here a couple of times now, on the first occasion I didn't have dinner due to other commitments but on my last visit I ate there and was blown away by the quality of the food. I stay here because it's nearby one of my clients, happened upon it by chance and I always look forward to returning.... More
