“Great location with good rooms, let down by poor dinner”
Reviewed 29 August 2011

Pleasant, friendly welcome on arrival. Room was comfy and a good size with clean bathroom. Location is fantastic for a walk along the shore. Great sitting room also offers a brilliant view of the sea.
Breakfast was good but dinner was usually re-heated frozen food. Vegetables in particular could have been much better. Stay in the hotel but eat elsewhere!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front to get the best view of the sea

We could not reach Brora, on the East Coast of Sutherland, so we stopped en route and by chance found this little and cosy hotel, in an otherwise quite grim village.

Tha Hotel is clean and beautifully located by the sea. It has its own parking plus plenty of places just accross the road. THe room was correct, quite modern and well equipped. It overlooked a rear garden, very quiet. The special feature: bedside lamps that switch on/off with a touch on the base: quite a treat.

Dinner on the other hand was not very good, especially for its price. Risotto was floating in different vegs and a lake of tomato sauce and the chicken breast was incredibly pale (undercooked). But the restaurant room is indeed very pleasant and quite large. Tables are surprisingly large, which makes it pleasant to eat on.

Would recommend for a short stop en route to other parts of Scotland.

This hotel is better than some supposedly "high class" hotels and the rates are good. Our room was very clean and well appointed. There was a good choice of tea, coffee, etc. in the room and there was even an electric blanket provided. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. We will be back!

we stayed one night last week, lovely setting by the shore. Room was clean and comfortable . Lounge spacious and lots of books to borrow, as well as usual TV and a bar with an outstanding range of Malt Whisky. Breakfast was fine. Conveniently placed if travelling further North. Recommended

We booked online about 6 months in advance (in February). When we paid, the holder told us that we had to pay 3% more also using the debit card. This is absolutely unfair. Moreover there is no indication of this surcharge in the internet site of the hotel, differently from other B/B were we stayed in our holidays in Scotland where it is clearly indicated.
Moreover, we did not find place in the private parking and we had to park outsided. Nothing to comment on the room.

A group of 6 golfers stayed 4 nights at this hotel. The hotel is in a lovely location, overlooking the sea and well located for our golf trip (Brora, Golspie, Dornoch). Rooms were good and the hotel comforable. The downsides were the lack of flexibility on breakfast timing which for us meant only cold breakfast when we were playing 2 rounds and unremarkable dinner quality - we only ate dinner the first night and ate out thereafter. A few changes on the catering side would really improve this hotel which has the potential to be better.
