The Eagle Hotel
Ranked #4 of 6 Hotels in Dornoch
Reviewed 31 July 2013

We have visited the Eagle Hotel many many times over the years & have even stayed there while our cottage in Embo was being renovated. The service from all the staff is second to none. The food is fantastic, plenty of choice & plenty to choose from. The steak, well my mouth is watering just thinking about it..... fantastic! The last time we stayed there we had 2 rooms up in the attic with a private bathroom which were great & very comfortable & also very private. Not a lot more that can be said other than we would thoroughly recommend it both for staying there & popping in for a meal.

Went there for a meal with the family, staff were lovely and the meals were amazing!! The steak is well recommended!!! And definitely leave room for pudding :) The only thing I would say is that it's not a cheap family dining out experience, but well worth a little more for the quality of food given.

Faultless! Charming and friendly staff. Room was clean and spacious with plenty hanging space and drawers. The breakfast was fresh and the dining room was packed out at night but service and standard of food was high. We would recommend and hope to return. Hope places like this do not change and lose their appeal. Thank you.

Room Tip: We were at the back and it was peaceful, even with windows open all night.

You can't expect any more than the Eagle delivers for £70 a night. Large, clean room, excellent hot water pressure and quite (mid week). Great atmosphere in the Pub and staff all very friendly . breakfast was of a surprising good quality given the room rate

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the spa!

Arrived after an 8 hour drive to find out there was a disco till 12.30. Nothing we could do to change that but annoyingly the noise from leaving customers at 2a.m was awful. The room beside us was loud too. Terrible sleep. Not impressive breakfast as it claims on the website, sausages weren't good.

On departure, we expressed our opinion of the noise of the leaving
customers as to be very loud but felt that the staff didn't care.

Room was ok. Good size tv to drown out the noise of the disco. Coffee cups mouldy. Wallpaper peeling off due to dampness.

Thank you for taking the time to share your views on Trip Advisor. I note your comments regarding the noise outside and unfortunately there is little that can be done once the customers have left our premises, we do ask all customers to respect the area and our neighbours by keeping the noise to a minimum when leaving the premises.

I am sorry that the breakfast you ordered was not to your satisfaction, we have taken your comments seriously and the Head Chef is aware of your dissatisfaction.

I will address the points you raised with the team here and investigate specific service issues you described. Please be assured we take all feedback seriously from our guests and implement actions to address shortfalls in service levels.

Once again thank you for your feedback.

My wife and I stayed here over New Year, we found the rooms to be very comfortable and the new manager and staff to be very friendly.
We ate in the hotel over the 3 days we stayed and found the food to be very good and an excellent choice.
We had our dog with us and the staff were very helpful, keep up the good work Nick!

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the hotel and we had no noise from the bar
