‘I called it the Grand Old Dame, it might be older but it has quality – like a lot of us!! Had a lovely big room overlooking the golf course and beach. Walked through the golf course to the beach – very nice after a day in the car. Went into the bar and ordered a meal – very nice and quick. Very comfortable bed…’
‘Good base… There are lovely views and the staff could not have been nicer. The hotel itself has amazing potential. It is just in need of a bit of TLC and updating. It did us just fine though.’
‘Golfing weekend. Very enjoyable stay at this hotel… Staff very helpful, and breakfast was really good, great selection. Room was fine, bathroom a little bit basic, but shower was good. Really nice setting looking out into the Dornoch Forth. Overall very pleased with our stay.’
