The Glenmorangie House
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Tain
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 26, 2008

The place was beyond any expectations. Located remotely outside Tain, in between farms and the North Sea shore, we felt welcome from the minute we got out of the car. David was out there to greet us and show us to our tasteful spacious rooms. Unlike many British country resorts, the shower in this one had a single tap, so you can adjust the water temperature (not trivial in the UK..)
Instead of good night chocolates there was a little carafe of Glenmorangie Scotch in the room - lovely touch..
Dinners were excellent (again, not trivial in this part of the world..)
Every need or desire of us was cheerfully taken care of.
I can't wait to come back!

This was one of the few places we could find to cater for our wedding for 6 - and I am so glad!
It could not have been more perfect. The food was incredible, the house, grounds and beach beautiful and the staff amazing.
Welly boots and wax jackets are on hand for walks along the beach and clay pigeon shooting.
We would (and have been) recommending it to everyone!

AVOID THE CAITHNESS SUITE! paid £220 a night for b&b this was meant to be a special rate! This was first room we were allocated.It was right above the kitchen,which we had to stay our first night .You could hear every word that was said ( and I mean every word about guests!)let alone the usuall kitchen noises. The shower in this room is hand held above the bath, you may think this is quaint, I dont think this is acceptable in a hotel that is aiming at a luxury market. I asked if we could be moved to another room and was told that "some one has to have the room above the kitchen!" We were moved but without the help of any porters. Our new room was fine and the bed was particulary good,the waiting staff were fantastic, the food and location could not be faulted. My only other small complaint is that the wine was very over priced and they had a limited list so my advise is bring your own.

What a place to stay. The hotel is wonderful, the staff are superb, talk about individual service. The food was excellent and from the hotel's own gardens. Fresh fruit picked that morning for the breakfast table, fresh vegetables from the garden, fresh flowers picked from the flower beds, jam made at the hotel, honey from the farm next door, salmon from the sea shore just below the hotel, come on.....am I joking, I kid you not, this is a one in a million hotel. Relaxed, warm and hospitable "Go north to Cadboll and stay here!"

An utterly fabulous weekend, from the informal but undoubtedly sincere welcome, though the fantastic accommodation, to the distillery visit, food and entertainment. We had a super room and found the informal, country-house-weekend atmosphere exceptional – helped without a doubt by the superb staff and the single grand-table dining arrangement. Maybe we were lucky, but our fellow guests were all excellent company and Marco, Adrian, Albert and Nicholas, from The Netherlands, were always game for a laugh, no less so than in their wearing of the kilt for the Saturday-night ceilidh. We felt Martin the storyteller "knew his stuff" and found him sufficiently entertaining to continue blethering with him into the night with the help of the open-all-hours honesty bar. Glenmorangie distillery itself was exceptional, Assistant Manager John MacDonald gave freely of his time and expertise, and the awesomely proportioned still room was no less than a cathedral of whisky-making.
At best, a whisky-lover's dream weekend and, at worst, a fabulous country-house weekend for those strange creatures – like my partner – who for reason beyond fathom do not enjoy the water of life!

Made welcome and shown to Cottage. Quite nice but certainly not 5 star. Given tea and home made cakes - v. nice. Rooms in hotel were much more 5 star. Friday was very minimal. Supper was poor. Story teller needed to be a bit more entertaining, although a good idea. Saturday was great. Trip to Distillery well worth it very interesting and fun. Back to tea and home made cakes and scones. Gala dinner was exceptional from the Piper, piping us into dinner and later welcoming the haggis. Good wine to the celied. The whole day was excellent. Would do it again BUT beware of the hidden extras. Make sure you know what is included in the price i.e. if you have the courtesy car from the airport ask what it costs. Other than the wine at dinner, and afternoon tea, the drinks are NOT complimentary they have to be paid for (reasonable prices though)
