Golf View House
Ranked #1 of 15 Tain B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 November 2012

We stayed at Golf View House in summertime to play golf at Brora and Royal Dornoch. Tain was a nice little town and we understand that we should have played Tain GC as well. The accomodation was cute and clean and the garden and location was very nice. Susan and Bill is a perfect hospitality couple and are interested, interesting, very friendly and has a lot of humour. We enjoyed splendid breakfasts and recommend the B&B to anyone that plan a golf break in the area. Tain as a village don´t have many restaurants but the hotel restaurant within a nice walk is ok.

Room Tip: You should not miss this gem if in the area. Bock well in advance.

Very enjoyable stay in Tain in August. Accommodating owners, comfortable bed, great breakfast and really helpful in getting wet gear dried off.

Also helpful in pointing me in the right direction for evening meals and what to do around Tain.

Couldn't find any faults!

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking over towards the Golf Course

I would highly recommend The Golf View House. The owners, Bill and Susan were very accommodating. Their home is beautiful, great view of farm land and Rain Golf Course, and my.overall experience was favorable. I stayed in 4 B&B's during my vacation in Scotland and The Golf View House was the only one with a guest den area for relaxing and watching TV on large flat screen. Laura N., Boston, MA USA.

It was a wonderful experience to stay at such a beautiful place, with very nice and competent hosts. We could easily combine to play Golf, to go for a trip to the West Coast and to have dinner in some nice Restaurants. It was a relaxing time for us. Thank you very much for that.

A very good B&B. Our bedroom was top class and the bathroom was amazing. Lovely views and great hosts. The stone built house standing in it's own grounds above the Dornoch Firth is just the perfect setting. We needed an overnight stop on our way North, and could not have made a better choice.

We stayed 2 nights at the Golf view House in September 2012 and really enjoyed our stay!
The rooms are fine and very clean. Great window seats in the bedroom. The breakfast room is fantastic in setting, design and with view over the golf. The breakfast was one of the very best we had in 3 weeks journey through Scotland and also the setting and decoration of the tables was extraordinary beautiful. And of course: the owners were very friendly and run the house very professional but with a great heart.
