A place that makes you think you are about to star in an Agatha Christie novel: the building a splendid early 20th Century lodge, the decorative slant naturally towards the beautiful Links course next door, dark wood, leather armchairs, a sprinkling of middle-aged to elderly guests.
But all is calm, well run and without murder on our stay, two nights for business. Tartan, which frequently oppresses in Scottish hotels, is mercifully restrained. We ate in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner, meals which, like the hotel and staff were very good, quietly unassuming rather than showy. Also used the BIlliard Room for working, which was fine, pads and pens provided, soup and sandwiches, generous and fresh though not quite as good as other meals.
Bedrooms large, light, clean and wonderfully quiet, comfortable bed, no problems with too much or too little heating, bathroom spacious and efficient, if not luxurious. The spa and swimming pool both clean and almost unused. I had the gym to myself and my companion the same with the pool.
Brora is a very quiet place and this is a quiet hotel but in the nicest way.More
