Good Hotel Guide Review
At once grand and intimate, this sumptuously refurbished hotel overlooking the green at the Royal Dornoch Golf Club has a relaxed, country house feel. Bucolic landscapes and paintings of Highland cows decorate the Victorian manse; traditionally, but unstuffily, decorated bedrooms and suites are spread across the main house, the Georgian-styled Mews and the late Victorian-styled Glenshiel. At mealtimes, pick an ambience to suit: Mara restaurant has fine, modern menus; the bar/brasserie serves informal dishes. The sandy beach is within a five-minute stroll, and the diversions (fishing expeditions, whisky tours, etc) are many, but guests might choose to simply sink, in comfort and contentment, into a deep armchair by a peat fire.
