Reviewed 26 September 2012

We had already stayed in 4 small Inns/Hotels before we arrived in Golspie. In comparison the hotel while clean and having a pleasant location was way behind the others in terms of food. There seemed to be no indication that they sourced local products, say 100 mile radius, the eveing meal may have come out of bottles/jars/packets/the microwave and the breakfast menu was limited for example no fresh fish. In the bar while having an extremely large range of whisky there were no local beers say from the Black Isle or closer. Linda and Richard who were welcoming and friendly need to raise their game on this issue.

Linda and Richard were lovely, really friendly and very helpful. We stayed at the golf links hotel for 2 nights for a weekend in July 2012 for a good friends wedding. Breakfast was great full english with local produce, not greasy just lovely. The rooms were clean and comfortable loads of storage. Had everything you need. Richard was great behind the bar dealing with loads of wedding guest taking over his hotel. Endless whiskey selection. We had an amazing view from our room. Thank you Linda and Richard for looking after us.

We knew we were going to arrive quite late in the evening, after flying into Inverness .. and we knew we would be too late to for dinner so we emailed in advace to ask if they could put a sandwich in our room .. they refused saying the dinning room closed at 8pm. The owners live next door and the bar was manned until the late hours - serving whiskey - so we thought it was a bit mean that they couldn't have done a sandwich - especially as they provide packed lunches..
The location and the views are lovely - however the bedroom was mediocre and nothing special .We couldn;t work the shower and were made to feel a bit stupid when we asked fro help, The dinner in the dining room was awful pre - packaged and taseless.. Nothing fresh, The breakfast was ok though. The whole tone of the place is not very friendly and I would not reccomend it.

We spent a few days in Golspie and haven't noticed this hotel & restaurant until we decided to visit the Pier. It is a little bit off track (from the main road, but very close to the train station, etc) but we were so happy to have discovered this gem!
Beautiful settings with a fantastic view so we decided to go in for a meal. We were welcomed by a very polite person who escorted us to the bar and brought us the menus. The bar was stocked with so many malts that we found it phenomenal, we found there was free wi-fi as well.
After a short while we were shown to our table. This dinning room was spectacular! Beautiful room with nice stonework walls and nice flooring. Huge windows to admire the beautiful view.
The Salmon Supreme was the best salmon I ate in ages! Delicious choice and I recommend it.
After our meal we requested to see the rooms and we were shown two beautiful ensuite rooms and we wished we had booked this hotel instead, it was cheaper and more beautiful. So we will be back in Golspie and will definitely stay at the Golf Links Hotel.

Room Tip: Free wi-fi, no password.

I stayed for one night on business, and was generally very impressed. Great location on the beach with a bright resident's lounge that allows you to enjoy the view despite the unreliable local climate. I'd imagine all the rooms have a view of either the sea or Ben Bhraggie, the hill behind the town. welcome was friendly and the owners always available and helpful.

The room was clean and well decorated with flat screen TV, adequate desk and comfortable bed. Bit cold when I arrived but soon warmed up once the central heating came on, beds have electric blankets which is always a good thing. My room had great water pressure, though the hot water took a few minutes to work through the plumbing.

The bar was well stocked with whisky if a bit pricey. Food was adequate in the evening, breakfast was above average. Highlight was the comfortable resident's lounge with a big collection of DVDs to watch on the big screen or in your room, and a fair assortment of reading materials.

I can't comment on value for money but it is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in recently and would make a good base for a few days.

We stayed in September 2011 with our 11 month old daughter. We were taken to view the room before we stayed to make sure our travel cot would fit. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. The evening meal, was dissapointing, but the breakfast was lovely. The owner has a vast DVD collection which he allows you to select from and take to your room, something i havent come accross before but a nice personal touch! The Hotel is in a great location right on the beach so be sure to take a gander.
