Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Thoroughly recommend the restaurant and bar, lovely evening meal and breakfast. Staff also great and really helpful.

Rooms are quite dated (particularly the bathroom) and need a refresh. Everything appeared clean tho which is most important.

Good location, stayed whilst travelling the NC500 which worked well.

We had booked in for dinner knowing we'd be visiting Dunrobin Castle that day and didn't want to go far for dinner. The place is a typical older Inn with basic decor. We were very pleasantly surprised however with the food. Very generous portions at reasonable prices. There was only one waitress managing the whole room which were about 5 or 6 different parties but she did an excellent job. Very good!

Hotel lies on the main road in the middle of town and parking for the hotel is a cross the road in a public car park. When we arrived our check-in was a tad disorganized as there was minimal staff and the check-in lady was no-where to be found. Still it all worked out all right in the end thanks to Julian the barman.We had booked 2 single rooms and were given:

Room 1 - at the rear of the hotel. Room was dim but well appointed with a great big double bed, flat screen TV ( but reception was poor with some channels to jumpy to see), tea/coffee making facilities + biscuits and also bottled water. Room was of a reasonable size with plenty of hanging space but limited "laying out" space. En-suite had a toilet, shower and sink and came with handwash and moisturiser. I looked at the shower head and thought it might be underpowered - but boy was I wrong - there was a lot of water pressure there. Room had a nice "smell" to it but I could't place what is was, however.. There was some mould in the shower and a bit of wall paper falling off the roof. The room was the first I slept in - in the whole week that had "BLACKOUT curtains" - magic!.

Room 5 was pretty much identical but it faced the road and it had a bath/shower. Mum said that there was little road noise at night.

The bar/restaurant was quite busy and if you are "into" whisky there are just under 300 bottles for sampling. I liked the fact that they did whisky tasting trays. We ate in there and both thoroughly enjoyed it.

Breakfast is a help yourself affair in a small room near the kitcken. The room could do with a makeover. It was a help yourself affair but you could have a cooked breakfast on request. Coffee is Nescafe - if you want proper coffee you have to go down the road to a local cafe!

During day/evening meal service the staff were running around like banshees keeping everyone fed and watered. Boy were they working. I single out Julian for his excellent service, helpfulness and generally very positive attitude. Well done Julian.

Bearing in mind where you are and what is available - I thought this place was OK and yes I would stay there again.

Room number 4 is to be avoided.

The toilet, shower and sink make a noise like an aeroplane taking off as soon as you run the water or flush the toilet.
If it rains, (and we're in Scotland) the rain comes down via a broken gutter and hits the window frame sounding like someone playing drums 🥁 then when the rain stops the dripping afterwards is like a form of torture.

The rooms look bright and cheery in the photos but in reality the room is dark grey with dark coloured carpet. Very depressing.
We had someone in the room above us and you could hear their every step. I found myself praying they'd get into bed and not move.

Service at the evening meal was extremely slow. 40 minutes for the starter to appear, then half an hour for the main after the waitress took away the soup plate.

The breakfast was good.
The waitress was lovely and dealt with our grumpy complaints with apologises and told us the owner had tried to get someone to fix the gutter.
She was like a wee bright light in the Sunderland ensuring we had enough to eat with a bright smile. 🌞

We wouldn't use this hotel/Inn again.

Tonight we visited the Sutherland Inn at Brora, all i can say is £14 for frozen chips,frozen Scampi and frozen peas is not good value, nor particularly enjoyable. My Cajun chicken was OK but all pre prepared vegetables. On a positive note the staff were really good and a credit to the Inn.

We stayed for 2 nights in Brora at the Sutherland Inn. We chose to eat both nights and on both nights the food was good, especially the Chicken and Chorizo Tagliatelle, however the chilli was pretty tasteless on our first night. Our room was ok, bit on the dark side and no heating in the toilet but a very comfy bed. We enjoyed drinks in the bar and the atmosphere was good. So why only a 2, customer service was poor. When we checked in we confirmed we had diner booked for 8, we were told we could bring the time forward the we were told we couldn't the the waiter came yo us at 6:45 to say our table was ready which suited us fine but we then had to wait 45 for food. Twice during the evening the waitress on duty approached the barman and interrupted him while he was dealing with me. On our arrival at the hotel on our first night we had agreed with the barman that we would have breakfast at 9, this was confirmed later in the evening and put on our booking slip. Next morning we arrive downstairs for breakfast at 8:58 to be told by the waitress breakfast was finished , she then went to fetch the owner, he arrived a few minutes later and pointed out that it was now after 9 so breakfast was over, we explained what had been agreed with the barman and the owners only solution was to offer to phone his wife who was at that time opening another business so we left. Next day however ourselves and two other guests we served our breakfasts after well after 9, so why we couldn't have had breakfast the previous day has not yet been explained. Won't be back.

This hotel is exactly what is says, an Inn. Nothing fancy, clean tidy, a good inexpensive stopping place which takes dogs. Staff were conscientious, polite and accommodating. Food both evening meal and breakfast were fine, basic pub grub but not everything with chips. Hearty portions at a reasonable price.

Stopped in Brora on my journey and wish I hadn’t. Place looks nice but the staff didn’t even acknowledge myself or family. Very rude and not impressed so moved on. If have to stop in Brora ise the coop opposite this place; even then they weren’t the cheeriest....

I stayed for 4 nights in April during a holiday playing on the Far North Railway Line. The Sutherland Inn is a basic hotel with all that you need but few frills, giving very god value for money. The bed was comfortable and the food excellent, always tasty and piping hot. Staff, of which there are plenty, are attentive and polite.

I would certainly stay again if I visit this lovely part of Scotland again.
