My sister was getting married on Saturday 30th March and they had booked us in to the Dornoch Castle Hotel. We stayed the Saturday night through to Sunday and cannot fault it at all. The staff where so friendly and could,nt do enought for you (what ever it was). The bedrooms where superb, our bed was nice and comfortable the room was very clean and they left a compliementry (small) cariff os Sherry, along with the tea/coffee/hot chocolate and shortbread biscuits. Down in the restaurant we went for the scallops, absolutly amazing (done to perfection). For main we had the Scottish beef fillet, asked for medium rare and again just perfect and melt in the mouth, just about managed to sqeeze a sweet in which was also 100%. We had an excellent nights sleep followed by a full Scottish breakfast which set us up for the day (as we where travelling back to Luton). I recommend this hotel 100% and would not hesitate to return in the future. EXCELLENT !!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Castle is located in the historic town of Dornoch across from the stunning 13th century Cathedral, boasting stunning views of the town. The central position of the hotel makes it ideal for exploring Dornoch, home to the world famous Royal Dornoch Golf Course, which overlooks the breath taking golden sand beach. Dornoch is also well situated for those looking to explore more of what the Highlands have to offer. The historic Castle is built on the site of the original Bishop’s Palace of St Gilbert, who founded the Cathedral in the early 13th century. The building eventually sold on and in 1947 became a hotel after some extensive work, which maintain much of the character of the Castle as a stately, historic and comfortable home. The Castle boasts a total of 22 en-suite bedrooms situated both within the original castle and the modern garden extension. There is a variety of room types available including; standard, superior, deluxe and our award winning Old Courtroom. Due to the castle’s layout each bedroom has its own special ambiance, great care has been taking in creating a distinctive character in each bedroom. The Castle's restaurant has retained an AA rosette standard, through the exceptional work from the chefs. The malt whisky selection is second to none and can be enjoyed in the cosy stone-lined whisky bar with the roaring fire to protect you from the Scottish winds, in the summer the walled garden is the perfect setting to relax during the long summer nights. Coming Summer 2016: The Dornoch Distillery will be opening soon on the grounds of the Dornoch Castle Hotel producing 'Old Style' Whisky and Hand Crafted Organic Gin from scratch. ... more less
