I love Tain and have previously been well satisfied with an accommodation here. But on this occasion I wanted to spend a little more and was tempted by Golf View House.
I arrived on a sunny May evening shortly after seven when the place, and its unrivalled views across the Dornoch Firth were at their most stunning. You're well away from the road here and all you can hear is birdsong which can be a treat in itself.
A friendly welcome was followed by a quick tour of the relevant interiors which included a breakfast room commanding some of the best views in the place. My bedroom and the en-suite bathroom were huge. Everything was in the best contemporary style while still managing to blend in with the historic features of this lovely building. The peace and quiet and the cleanliness were so relaxing and you start to unwind immediately.
Breakfast is served from eight in the morning for a limited time but they did make an earlier exception for me on request. The food and drink options were wide-ranging, generous and of excellent quality.
I don't like the concept that the place you stay is only a place to sleep. I want to be able to feel as comfortable there as I do in my own home. This place is professionally run and it was a delight to be able to spend a few days there. In fact, as far as some of the amenities were concerned it was BETTER than being at home!
