Reviewed 9 May 2014

Spent a 3 night break here and was very impressed. Location just off the beautiful beach was ideal. Watched dolphins cavorting in the bay from the hotel garden. Great spa, good food and first class service - what else could you ask for apart from one of the world's great golf courses 200 yards from the hotel.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the beautiful bay.

The Golf View has a wonderful location and we have visited it on many occasions over the years. However, when we visited earlier this year there was a notable deterioration in the quality of service and the whole place seemed to lack management and direction.

We have since returned and under the new management things are definitely improving. All the staff appeared much happier and this was reflected in the quality of service. The new manager, Donald Macleod had a visual presence both in reception and in the restaurant and this itself helps to improve staff motivation.

There are areas of the hotel which are a bit tired and in need of refurbishment. It is an old building which requires capital investment and hopefully Mr Crerar will provide the funding to restore the Golf View to its former glory.

We have stayed here twice and will definitely be back. The rooms are very comfortable and the building is beautiful. The restaurant is old- world and the food is absolutely delicious whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Their pool is set looking out at the sea and they have an outdoor hot tub which was quite a novelty when it was snowing in December. The staff are always extremely friendly and helpful. One of my favorite hotels in Scotland.

We stayed here for 2 nights last month and had a very nice time. The guest reception areas in the hotel are traditional and well maintained. Our room had a fantastic sea view, massive comfortable bed and lots of room. It could have done with some modernisation however - a lick of paint to brighten it up at least wouldn't go amiss. The spa area was good (poss in need of a refurb in a couple of years) - loved the outdoor hot tub. We were keen to stay another night however the hotel wouldn't negotiate a slight reduction for our 3rd night - so we moved to a small 4* independent hotel a few doors up for £70 less a night than we were paying at the Golf View.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at the Golf View Hotel, sorry my reception staff wouldn't reduce the rate for the 3rd night maybe that was me. We normally have the decorators in twice yearly doing areas within the hotel and other than that our maintenance man keeps on top of everything else. Thank you again for your review

Just back from a 3 night break, had a lovely time. Staff all very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. A lovely 6 course taster menu plenty to please everyone and lovely breakfasts. Had a fantastic room on the top floor, saw 5 dolphins swimming just off the beach. Pool, steam room, jacuzzi and hot tub (even although weather outside was overcast) were all great and included in the price.
This is the second time we have been at the Golf View and will certainly be back :)

We paid for an upgrade to a double room with Jacuzzi and a sea view however the room is dull and could do with a makeover, carpet wearing and the furniture needing some TLC. Both breakfast and dinner very nice with plenty of choice. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Overall the hotel is average in a excellent location with great views across the Moray Firth looking towards the Black Isle.

Room Tip: Room 10 is above the bar and noise could be heard into the early hours of the morning.

We came here for our honeymoon only to be told our room had been double booked and they could not accomodate us, nor would they even let us use the spa facilities once we were settled into another hotel near by. It was even suggested we would have to pay a fee since they would be charged from Booking.Com for our booking which no longer existed!

We did not like the tired reception area and the smell of chlorine was too overwhelming. Will never again attempt to visit this hotel nor use Booking.Com to book any other holiday. The Newton along the road rescued our honeymoon and we would recommend their instead.
