“Good value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2009

Went with Shearings Coaches on an 8 an day holiday Going up we stopped for the night at Hotel on the hill " Swallows in Carsile ( Revue later) then on to Dornoch . This is one of the best hotels that Shearings offer Even though we had not pait fof the sea view we were given one. When you looked over the grounds and the golf course to the sea at the Firth of Dornoch it was enough to take your breath away.
The only disapointing thing was the fact that as the hotel was very old the floor creaked quite loudly when you walked on some of them.
Well worth the money to up grade to Sea view and a lower floor than the 4th floor which is what we stayed on

Another Shearings hotel and run in exactly the same way as the others I've been to. Inexpensive, great staff and good value for money, in an older but well 'done up' building. I spent a long weekend there with friends, visiting (not so) local sights and doing some walking. Some other self-drive visitors were there for the golf course, which is opposite the hotel. Most people were there as part of a Shearings coach trip, but don't let that put you off, they might be mainly of the older variety, however they are there to have fun and generally manage it. Breakfast and evening meals, which are fairly regimented but efficiently handled, are included, as is six evenings entertainment a week. My only gripe is that the car parking slots are a bit nippet, but that seems to be a local as well as a hotel feature. 'Nippet' is Doric for 'tight'.
