A typical little Highland hotel where the owners and staff give the warmest of welcomes and nothing is too much trouble. Situated just off the A9 and only two miles from Dornoch it's the ideal place to stay whether for one night or a few, while you explore the area. Good facilities, good food, good service and a fantastic party venue. Would I come again? Very deffinately YES.

Stop off here on way back home from holidays. It's a really great place with a lot of choice available, the Mexican food is amazing and I differed from a bit of food envy but my steak was done to perfection and really liked the chips

Visited the Trentham twice whilst on holiday. Was slightly concerned at previous reviews but must say very impressed with food and service. The staff were only to happy to help. My daughter loved the apple pie and was most upset when me and the mrs went back on our own for a meal. Will certainly return when we are back in the area next year.

We regularly visit here with family and friends, the food is always good, and the atmosphere welcoming. The Breaded Brie and Steak Sizzler are second to none! Well worth a visit, good food all year round.

The only good points here are a young gent serving and the toilets!! Did I just say that...yes but it's the truth my family were staying in a caravan park in July we decided to eat in many places over their two week stay.
My first snag was it was apparent this place is being run by over confident young kids who don't have their managers people skills.
Is it really such an effort to have manners? And ask polite questions and say please and thank you.
Manager if your reading this these kids are your downfall.
Your food is average at a medium-high price.

Didnt stay here but popped in for meal with inlaws. firstly to have to order your own food at the bar which is kind of poor...the food itself is ordinary to say the least..roughly 8 quid for fish n chips..surely for being on the north east coast of scotland could do better than a tasteless bit of fish with bog standard frozen chips and tinned peas..bro in laws steak pie was more of a gravy pie..little in the way of steak im afraid..desserts were ok but all were smothered in cream or custard to hide fact that actual pudding portions werent that big..i noticed also there was shortage of menus and girls kept taking them away to other tables from ours..overall service was good toilets were spotless but food was about a decent weatherspoons standard..wouldnt rush back.
