Good Hotel Guide Review

Kerensa and Michael Carr’s ‘very pleasant and comfortable’ guest house occupies a carefully preserved late-Victorian sandstone building close to the cathedral and the Royal Dornoch Golf Club. The elegant Edwardian furnishings, largely family antiques, create a welcoming atmosphere; in cool evenings, sit by the wood-burning stove with one of the many books in the lounge. Well-proportioned bedrooms have tea- and coffee-making facilities and a radio alarm clock; a power shower in the bathroom. Michael Carr, a trained chef, cooks a ‘delicious’ breakfast; fellow golf enthusiasts, rest assured – breakfast is still served to ‘those with an early tee time’. Dinner menus are tailored to guest preferences. Beautiful stretches of sandy beaches are a short distance away. Lounge/library, dining room. Licensed. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). No background music. ‘Babes in arms’ and children over 10 welcomed. 3 bedrooms. Per room B&B £80–£120, D,B&B £101–£141. Closed Christmas.
