We stayed here about 18 months ago and were impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the delicious meals. The dinner menu is not large, 4 choices per course, but the food is freshly cooked and well presented. The rooms are beautifully appointed and comfortable. We will be back.

Lovely room with very comfy bed. Both dinner and breakfast were superb Bar was small but very well stocked; nice nightcap in the lounge At night I switched off the light and it was proper dark - no street lighting to keep you awake and quiet after 1030pm Overall, I would recommend and will use this hotel again.

Pros: Great views and location; superb food for breakfast and dinner; friendly staff; spacious room Cons: Very dated decor; uncomfortable lumpy bed; very noisy and creaky hotel that kept waking us up every time another guest opened a door or walked the hallway; hard to find staff to serve us at reception or in the bar; no milk or creamer...

The room and Breakfast were fine. The dinner was limited to a choice of one soup (tomato and basil), a Cold Buffet and a few cold desserts. Although the cold buffet was OK the lack of a hot alternative or further choice is unacceptable for a Hotel charging the amount this one does. The waitresses seemed completely out of their... More

A decision to have a family gathering and meal to celebrate a special birthday was rewarded with a brilliant evening of true highland hospitality provided my the hotel team. Excellent food superb service and a great atmosphere. Thanks to all the staff.

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
