“Wonderful Hosts in a Quaint Northern Town”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

Three golfers stayed here 1 week ago at the beginning of out Scottish adventure and I couldn't be happier with our choice of town and B&B . Marrelle is a wonderful modest hostess who makes a great Scottish breakfast and is so friendly welcoming and funny. Edward goes the extra mile to tell you about the local area , both history and golf details and also is welcoming and makes a great latte. The Amalfi is a nice little place an my room had a generous sized bathroom, very nice gardens and the B&B was spotlessly clean. They won't steer you wrong either to golf or find a local restaurant. Dornoch is a wonderful little town with lots of history and a great central location for golfing in the nearby towns

I was on a golfing and fishing trip with my father, my friend and his father. It's perfect for that because it's close to the beach and to the golf course.

Very close to the course, just a short walk. Great rooms and very comfortable beds. Free Wi-fi. They serve really good breakfast in the morning at any time you would like.

The best thing about it is the hosts. Everything is great but the best part is that you feel like family. It feels as if you're there as a friend rather than there as customers. It feels like home, as you're staying at a friends house. So if you're going to Dornoch, stay at Amalfi and you will want to come back.

Stayed here on 12th June. Only complaint is that it was not for longer. Edward and Marelle met me and my wife at the door for introductions. They have a great knowledge of the area and went through some of the options of places to visit. They even had the menus of local eateries. Comfort was of the highest order. Nothing was too much trouble for them. In the morning, the breakfast was immense. For the cooked part, I asked for sausage, black pudding and egg. By the end of Edwards smooth talking, I ended up with sausage, bacon, egg, tomato, black pudding, haggis, mushrooms and potato scone. He let me off with just having one slice of bacon. Everything was locally sourced. It was cooked to perfection by Marelle, (just in case Edward claims the glory. She even makes her own bread).

Edward and Marelle are exceptionally nice hosts. If you want a home from home, this is the place to stay.

Amalfi House is a very nice place to stay if you are going to be in Dornoch. Marelle and Ed are warm hosts who make your stay warm and friendly. The location is perfect for golf at Royal Dornoch as it is less than a 5 minute walk to the first tee. The room I had was comfortable, although a little cramped with the best shower I encountered in two weeks of travel.

Since they are golfers, they understand that golfers have early tee times and need an early breakfast.

I'll be there again in the future.

John, Many thanks for taking the time to review Amalfi. The room you used is my smallest room, and I am planning a refurbishment to maximise the space. We very much enjoyed meeting you, and are glad you enjoyed your stay. Marelle

When you visit Dornoch, call this lovely couple first. You will be very well taken care of. I have been here several times and this is our first option. We love the rooms as they are large and very quiet. There is great hospitality, great food and a very good location, close to the golf course and the town center. We never use our car once we arrive.

Enjoy!

A beautifully furnished room and a very warm welcome to ourselves and our dog :) The B+B is in an excellent location 5 minutes from a lovely beach and 5 mintues the other way from the town centre with its shops retaurants and pubs. Well deserving the 5 stars that we rarely give, highly recommend. Thank you Marelle and Edward.

Marelle and Edward know how to make their guests feel at home. We stayed there during the Carnegie Shield, and they were terrific hosts. Marelle and Edward go out of their way to make sure their guests have a great experience in Dornoch. The breakfasts were delicious and hearty, and just the way to start a busy day. The accomodations were very comfortable, and having the ensuite bathroom is very convenient. Amalfi B&B is a wonderful way to spend a night, a weekend or an entire week.
