“Dornoch Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

When you visit Dornoch, call this lovely couple first. You will be very well taken care of. I have been here several times and this is our first option. We love the rooms as they are large and very quiet. There is great hospitality, great food and a very good location, close to the golf course and the town center. We never use our car once we arrive.

Enjoy!

A beautifully furnished room and a very warm welcome to ourselves and our dog :) The B+B is in an excellent location 5 minutes from a lovely beach and 5 mintues the other way from the town centre with its shops retaurants and pubs. Well deserving the 5 stars that we rarely give, highly recommend. Thank you Marelle and Edward.

Marelle and Edward know how to make their guests feel at home. We stayed there during the Carnegie Shield, and they were terrific hosts. Marelle and Edward go out of their way to make sure their guests have a great experience in Dornoch. The breakfasts were delicious and hearty, and just the way to start a busy day. The accomodations were very comfortable, and having the ensuite bathroom is very convenient. Amalfi B&B is a wonderful way to spend a night, a weekend or an entire week.

Trey, it was a privilege to have your company this year. Every morning at breakfast was such fun, and we were excited for you as you progressed to the final of the Shield.
A big sincere 'thanks' for your kind words, and for staying with us!

I have stayed at the Amalfi with Marelle and Edward several times. I had to change my timing this year but remained determined to make my regular visit. Marelle and Edward are perfect hosts; they are friendly and considerate and their mix of backgrounds and interests registers positively with a varied range of guests. All of the rooms I have used have been comfortable and the breakfasts have always been excellent. Dornoch is a great golfing town but that would not be the sole reason for making a visit there. There is much to see and do around this lovely old town and the location of the Amalfi is perfect whatever your interests. The friendliness and hospitality of Marelle and Edward, however, is what makes my visits to Dornoch very special.

Our hostess, Marelle, and her husband Edward, are delightful! We stayed during the Carnegie Shield tournament and could not have felt more welcome and at home! They were helpful and even though we had been to Dornoch several time, they introduced us to new places. The ensuite rooms are comfortable and large and the breakfast every morning is over the top fabulous! You must forget anything you think about haggis, and try theirs. I understand why the maker is a champion. We had a delightful time there and visiting with them. They go out of their way to treat their guest like good friends.

Kimberley, Many thanks for such kind words about Amalfi!
We really take great pleasure in playing a part in the 'Dornoch Experience', which for many people is a trip of a lifetime. We loved having you stay, and getting to know you over the week.
We hope we can welcome you back next year!

Marelle and Edward made my three night golfing stay in Dornoch truly memorable. They are engaging, interesting (and interested) people and went way above and beyond what could ever be expected of B&B hosts. I was treated like a close friend. It goes without saying that the accommodation and breakfasts (Edward even learned how to make me an Aussie 'flat white' coffee) were first class too. We are now trading emails and are aiming to play golf together on my home course when they visit Australia soon. So, not only have I found a brilliant place to stay (I'll be back with my wife and golf buddies) when playing one of the world's best golf courses, I have also made some delightful new friends. I cannot speak highly enough of my whole experience at Amalfi - thank you Marelle and Edward!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Marelle and Edward's lovely home in which they made us most welcome. The accommodation was first class in every way with every facility that the traveller could want. We much enjoyed too stimulating conversation on many subjects, one of us being a native Californian, like Edward. The Amalfi is just a short walk from the centre of Dornoch which we found a most interesting place to wander around. We warmly recommend the Amalfi. Even though the price was the highest of the five B&Bs we stayed in on our five day trip to Scotland,it was certainly, in our mind, value for money. We would definitely plan to stay there again if were in that part of Scotland.
