    Fabulous

    The view from our room over the links and the firth was spectacular.

    Perhaps a fridge stocked with soft drink/beer; something to look forward to at the end of a walk.

    The front of house staff were excellent, very helpfull.

    We were provided with a front door key which didn't work and we felt bad having to get the night porter out of his bed.

    Staff were very pleasant. I enjoyed watching the R.A.F. jet manouveres and practice bomb runs from the beach adjacent to the hotel. The hotel has a base nearby.

    Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Our room was modern with a great view of the 1st Tee of Royal Dornoch Golf Course!! The food in the restaurant was excellent and the views of the Dornoch Firth from the restaurant are not to be missed!

    Excellent food and wines and very friendly staff who went the extra mile

    Although all staff were very friendly some of them lacked training.

    Beautiful setting and accommodation. Receptionist Gaily was wonderful.

    Barman concentrated on American guests and others left. Spa or pool would have been nice.

    The staff were very polite and helpful. Food was great, and the steaks are the best i have had anywhere, the £30 is simply awesome

    Shower wasn't powerful enough for me, but that is just me liking power showers....!!!

    Very warm and cosy atmosphere, great staff who could not do enough. Decor was very high standard and food delicious, only criticism of dinner menu was the omission of old traditional favourite's but thats nitpicking. Great breakfast Golfers paradise, definately stay again.

    Window view from room was Fire escape steel steps and wall opposite, but hey! Close blinds and all is perfect. Strange dark cave which was actually a shower room to contain a football team, it was huge! Really been badly advised with led lighting though.

    We stayed very early in the season (they close for 3 months in the winter) and were very impressed with the improvements made during the off season. The bathrooms are really excellent. The staff could not have been better. We ate in the hotel and were the only guests in the restaurant. You would have thought the staff would have found hanging around just for us a pain but if it was they didn't show it. We are not golfers but the beach walks and superb and the views from the room and the restaurant spectacular. I would really recommend Dornoch and the Royal Golf.

    Wonderful position looking out across the golf course to the beach. The rooms were tastefully done, modern but respecting the era of the wonderful building. Great bathrooms with a proper shower. Restaurant looks out over the beach and golf - but not overtly a 'golfy' set of folk (we're not golfers). The staff were really welcoming and friendly. We were touring so only stayed one night but this hotel and Dornoch in general were voted the best stop.
