“Nothing fancy but a good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2007

We visited Dornoch primarily for the opportunity to play the amazing Royal Dornoch Golf Course which, if anything, is underrated. We stayed at the Eagle mainly because of good reviews on this site and the fact that our late planning limited what was available on the nights we wanted. We were very pleased overall with the Eagle. It's not elegant in the least and might be considered fairly primitive in another locale, but we were treated extremely well by the friendly and competent staff and enjoyed our visit a great deal. Our room was comfortable and well kept, the food was good, and the price was fair. We'd go back to the Eagle again on a subsequent visit to Dornoch..............a return visit I hope we get to make soon.

Stayed June 2007

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2006

We went upto Dorncoh for a friends wedding in September and had been booked into a B+B. Expecting a very bog standard room we were ushered over the road to a place called the Bank House that the pub owns and MY GOD, the rooms were massive with whirlpool bath and super kingsize bed. It was so lovely and the staff were amazing.

Thoroughly recommended!

We stayed for one night at the Eagle Hotel, Dornoch on a trip from Land's End to John O'Groats (by car!). All our e-mail dealings with the Eagle were prompt and clear. We elected to stay in the pub rather than down the road in the luxury accommodation, but we were very pleased with our rooms and with the whole atmosphere. Evening meal and breakfast were wholesome, quickly served with a smile and we felt welcome. The small town of Dornoch is delightful with a heavy golfing fraternity but, as non-golfers, we didn't feel out of it - indeed the walks along the sands trying to spot birds and seals were better than a round of golf! Would definitely revisit the Eagle.
