We had our wedding function at The Dornoch Castle Hotel on 3rd October, 2009. We stayed there on the night before and of the night of the wedding itself which was held across the road at Dornoch Cathedral. The Hotel is a wonderful mix of both ancient and modern with the splendid rooms holding their ancient charm. We stayed on the Friday night in 'Cathedral View' room which was spacious and luxurious. On our wedding night we stayed in 'The Old Courtyard' room which was quite breathtaking. Both rooms were extremely comfortable and had a welcome glass of sherry waiting.
The food at the Dornoch Castle Hotel is first class and is served in the open and airy garden restaurant. On the Friday, we had steaks which were cooked to perfection and there was an extensive menu to choose from. On our wedding day, the food was immaculately presented and was of a very high standard indeed. The service at the hotel is excellent and we must say a big thank you to Colin, Roz and staff for making our stay unforgettable. Although we stayed here for a particular occasion and found it faultless, we have stayed here previously for a 'romantic gettaway' and found it equally excellent. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants high standards in food, service and location which is excellent value for money.
- 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.

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.
