The Castle hotel was recommended to us by Highland Country Weddings (a real gem of a wedding planner) as we were looking to get married in a 'small village in Scotland'. We could not have wished for a better location. Besides the castle hotel being just across the road from the beautiful Cathedral where we were married, it was just perfect. The staff were all friendly and accommodating (biggest bouquets go to Simon, Ashley, Marie and Harmony) and everything about the place was traditional combined with the modern touch which we all so love (good water pressure, warm comfy beds, tea/coffee, wonderful food). The staff rallied around on the wedding day and accommodated the wedding planner, the stylist, and photographer who wanted photos outside, inside and all about the castle. The wedding dinner was exqusite - the food was prepared, cooked and plated to pure perfection. We cannot have our wedding day over again but we can live on the memories and have vowed to return their one day to celebrate an anniversary!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Castle is located in the historic town of Dornoch across from the stunning 13th century Cathedral, boasting stunning views of the town. The central position of the hotel makes it ideal for exploring Dornoch, home to the world famous Royal Dornoch Golf Course, which overlooks the breath taking golden sand beach. Dornoch is also well situated for those looking to explore more of what the Highlands have to offer. The historic Castle is built on the site of the original Bishop’s Palace of St Gilbert, who founded the Cathedral in the early 13th century. The building eventually sold on and in 1947 became a hotel after some extensive work, which maintain much of the character of the Castle as a stately, historic and comfortable home. The Castle boasts a total of 22 en-suite bedrooms situated both within the original castle and the modern garden extension. There is a variety of room types available including; standard, superior, deluxe and our award winning Old Courtroom. Due to the castle’s layout each bedroom has its own special ambiance, great care has been taking in creating a distinctive character in each bedroom. The Castle's restaurant has retained an AA rosette standard, through the exceptional work from the chefs. The malt whisky selection is second to none and can be enjoyed in the cosy stone-lined whisky bar with the roaring fire to protect you from the Scottish winds, in the summer the walled garden is the perfect setting to relax during the long summer nights. Coming Summer 2016: The Dornoch Distillery will be opening soon on the grounds of the Dornoch Castle Hotel producing 'Old Style' Whisky and Hand Crafted Organic Gin from scratch. ... more less
