5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

My friend John and I, passionate golfers, stayed at the Garvie residence for 3 nights as we played the 4 'Golf Gems' of the unforgettable 'Dornoch Hub' (Royal Dornoch, Brora, Tain and Golspie).

The Auchlea B&B greets its guests with wonderful rambling gardens in a country setting. One starts the day with a lovely view of the magnificent surrounding countryside through the bright windows flanking Fiona's generously garnished breakfast table.

Fiona also gave very sensitive attention to personal detail. We felt special. Auchlea easily deserves those 5 stars.

We stayed here for three days and very much appreciated Fiona's gracious help and excellent breakfasts. We recommend people to stay there. Fiona was accomodating to our non-dairy vegetaian diet requests and was helpful about things to do in the area.

We stayed at this B&B for one night on 6th Aug 11 and were well satisfied. The view over the Dornoch Firth and surrounding area is outstanding. Being a little way out of town it was quiet and peaceful. On arrival, Fiona extended a warm and friendly welcome and offered advice on locations to eat within the town. Our criticisms are that there was no hot water to shower with before going out that night and the shower cubical swamped the bathroom floor. The room was comfortable and the breakfast out of this world. We recommend this B&B to you and thank Fiona for our stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Auchlea guest house. The hostess Mrs Fiona Garvie was both warm and attentive, providing lots of helpful information to ensure we made the most of our visit. Our two rooms were well appointed (including wifi), comfortable and spotlessly clean, and we enjoyed a full breakfast, including fresh fruit and all the trimmings the next morning. Auchlea Guest House is located a few minutes from Dornoch and its elevation affords views of the town, the Dornoch Firth and mountains in the distance. Highly recommended.

We stayed at this B&B for one night and were very satisfied with our choice. We received a great welcome and had the use of a wonderful lounge in which to relax. It was so peaceful in that area. The view over the Dornoch Firth was excellent and we enjoyed the breakfast

We were recommended this B&B through the information service in Dornoch and were not disappointed. A little out of town, so quiet and relaxed. The host Fiona was friendly, informative and helpful. The room was very comfortable, great shower and a spa! Breakfast was great, fresh fruit and great choice. Would definitely return again and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Thanks Fiona for a lovely stay.
