Ranked #1 of 9 Golspie B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 April 2014

We stopped here at Dinner time on our travels around the north of Scotland. We chose this over other places as the car park was full. We were greeted by friendly staff and offered a High Tea.
The place was clean and tidy and the staff friendly and welcoming. We ordered the Haddock and Chips which arrived freshly made before we could even finish the toast!!
Excellent food followed by scone/ pancake and homebaking. Good value for money too and would recommend Golspie Inn to anyone.

Room Tip: Did not stay here.

Called into the Golspie Inn without booking tonight and we were given a table in the warm and homely restuarant at once. The young girl who welcomed us was very friendly, polite and chatty and she directed us to the specials that were available. 2 of us ordered the scampie and 2 went for the haddock, the meals were on the table in a jiffy and they did not disappoint. The scampi was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside unlike some chewy rubber you often get and the batter on the haddock was to die for, it was light and crispy while the meaty fish was cooked to perfection. The chips were perfectly crisp and fluffy while the herby salad complimented the meal to perfection and we were all in agreement that we would definetely be going back very soon. The service was fab, the price was great and the meal was first class. Many thanks to the chef and to the staff, we had a lovely evening x

Room Tip: We did not stay the night

Beautiful food very welcoming staff. reasonably priced and in a lovely location.
We went on a Sunday for lunch and arrived a little early but that was no trouble for the wonderful staff. I had roast beef with the trimmings. Probably the best I have ever had. Delicious. The decoration is just lovely and very clean. If I ever venture this far North again then this place is on my must to stop. Thank you so much.

Stayed here on our way to Orkney Ferry recently. It was ideal since we were allowed to have our wee dog with us. It is pet friendly - but not at the expense of others - exactly as it should be. The room was large, suitable, comfortable and clean. It could have done with refurbishment - but I think other rooms have been refurbished - we had the one available if you have a pet.
We were allowed to have our dog with us eating in the bar rather than the restaurant - this suited us completely. We could relax not worrying about the dog.
The food was excellent. The Cullen Skink was lovely - and I had pork with cider cream sauce and apple rosti for main course. Delicious.
The staff and owners were lovely and friendly.

Six of us went for high tea with young child and baby. Menu seemed good but batter on haddock was thick and greasy. Haggis neeps and tatties was a big disappointment. Haggis was two very obvious microwaved rectangular slices. Texture was very fine and taste was more like white pudding than haggis. Potatoe seemed very powdery and turnip was like purée. I sent it back but as others were almost finished and food had taken a long time to arrive, I did not reorder.
Shortly after, from reception waitress was loudly heard to be laying forth in the kitchen about our table. 'There was nothing wrong with the haggis and they could not make up their minds' - we had ordered both toast and bread. She the came out of kitchen and it was suggested to her that she should be more careful about criticising customers within their earshot. That waitress was never see in the dining room again while we were there and there was long delay before we were served tea /coffee and scones/cakes, which were not very appetising.
Conclusion - mediocre food and very poor customer service. We will not be back.

Room Tip: Did not stay so can not comment.

Very friendly and accommodating people. Food is very good and plenty of choice.
The laundry service could do with being looked at but apart from that very good.
Nice quiet area of town. Could do with a better selection of sky channels.

The Golspie Inn has just re-opened with new owners and management and we’d heard the food was good so chose to eat there on recently. The Inn is a fabulous old building that provides a very comfortable environment for eating out and we were not disappointed.

We had Steak and Chicken Breast stuffed with Black Pudding and Haggis from the standard menu, from the blackboard we had a portion of the Gravalax Salmon to start and Cheescake and Choco desert off the menu again for pud. All was accompanied by a pleasant bottle of smooth Chilean Merlot that was one of the house reds.

The food was very tasty, well presented and delivered timely - the service was friendly, attentive but not oppressive – just right!

Good luck with the new venture to the staff and management.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Golspie Inn Hotel is an historic coastal Coaching Inn built in 1808 with a long, rich and varied history over more than two centuries. Being next door to the 189-roomed Dunrobin Castle, it has witnessed at first hand many local historical events, notably the Clearances commencing in the early 1800's. Oh, and we have the oldest active post box in Scotland! We are ideally situated on the A9 for touring the whole of Sutherland - the only county in Britain with 3 coasts - and the Northern Highlands of Scotland. Our restaurants and bars serve high quality and value for money food and drink all day, including fresh shellfish from our own family boat. We do many functions and live musical and cultural events that reflect our traditional roots. We do many packages including golf, weddings, Christmmas and New Year to name but 3, and also many tours including sightseeing. distillery, castles, culture and heritage. As flexibility is our middle name, we have designed our own packages for you but are equally happy to put together made to measure packages customised by you. Golspie has become a popular venue for various sporting events. The award-winning mountain biking Highland Wildcat, considered by many to best the best in Britain, tracks down Ben Bhraggie whilst blending into the natural environment. Safe and secure bike storage and washing and drying facilities are available here at the Golspie Inn Hotel. We are also on the John O' Groats to Land's End bicycle route and we are an ideal staging post for either the first night on the way down or the last night on the way up! For swimmers, Golspie is home to an award-winning beach and there are many safe sandy beaches all around. Fishing is available on the local rivers and lochs and sea fishing can be arranged. Horse riding is available at local stables with guided treks provided. This is a stunningly beautiful area with much to do and see. For the walker,for example, the hour long round trip to the hidden gem of the lovely Big Burn walk with all its magnificence and thundering waterfall starts from our own front door - but you may well want to tarry! Or let us take you on a leisurely 6 mile walk along the beach from Brora to Golspie passing 2,000 years of history before returning to the hotel for tea and freshly-baked hot scones. There is an abundance of outstanding wildlife, flora and fauna on our doorstep. Salmon, thousands of wading and other seabirds, seals and otters. Wild mountain goats, deer, pine marten and the naturally shy wildcat - the emblem of Sutherland - to name but a few. These are just some of the many diverse activities and attractions to be enjoyed when you come to and stay at the Golspie Inn Hotel and we look forward welcoming you here in the near future. ... more   less
