“Brilliant. Pity it is so far away.”
My wife and I stayed at Dornoch Castle Hotel for two nights as part of a tour of Scotland.
This was bought for us by our daughter as a wedding anniversary present. The package was for two nights Dinner, Bed and Breakfast. The Hotel itself is in the main street of Dornoch and therefore easy to find but is not bothered by traffic noise as there is not much traffic. As this is an old building and not originally designed as a hotel it does not have a conventional layout, this only adds to it’s old world charm and ambiance. We were warmly greeted on our arrival and shown to our room which was quite large and given a complimentary drink (on both days). The en suite facilities were very good and we could find no fault (not that we were looking for any). The restaurant was excellent and we both thoroughly enjoyed dinner on both evenings. The bar has a very large range of whiskies and the barman (Scottie) is quite willing to extol the virtues of all of them without seeming pushy. Overall we enjoyed our stay at this hotel the room was superb as was the whole experience. I noticed that this hotel has a three star rating it deserves more, all the staff work hard to give their customers the best possible service and it is appreciated. We have no hesitation in giving this hotel the strongest possible recommendation.
