What a lovely little village is Dornie! This hotel is literally just across the way from Castle Eilean Donan, and perfectly situated for visiting the area. We had a lovely little walk into town to find an ATM (this B&B only takes cash, which is a bit hard when you're traveling from another country). There was no ATM in town,... More

The room was lovely and spacious with a very comfy bed. The view was fantastic...the room looked straight out over the loch and Eilan Donan castle Breakfast was lovely and had... More

Only stayed one night but not disappointed. Room really nice and view perfect. Didn't cater for dietary requirements - gluten free. Even though a coop down the road and notice given. That said didn't spoil our stay! Nice pub down the road

An excellent B and B, very well appointed and very welcoming. Breakfast was first class and rooms are of a high standard, thoroughly recommend this stop over. Directly opposite Eilean Donan castle (nearest b&b). Pic a view from b/room window!

We used two of the rooms. Both had a very good en-suite bathroom, a double bed as well as a single bed. Beautifully decorated, impeccably clean and both with a lovely view- one of the castle, the other of the river and the garden on the other side. There is a third bedroom also with a view of the river.... More
