“Simply excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013 via mobile

This is the best B+B I have stayed in. The rooms are immaculate, and Bill and Sue are friendly and professional.

The breakfasts are a very high standard in service, content and presentation.

The location of the house has amazing views out over the Moray Firth and is secluded enough to give a good peaceful nights sleep.

In summary this is a very high standard B+B which I highly reccommend.

But this place is amazing. We played Royal Dornach for 2 days, and stayed in Tain for three nights, and I would stay here in a heartbeat over anyplace they can offer me elsewhere. Not only is the place/the rooms wonderful, but the people of pleasant and thoughtful. Every night I had a cocktail with ice, well on his birthday they went out and we were at the house by ourselves, in the small refrigerator, with a note above, was bag of ice for me. It is only a small thing, but it is an example of what they do there. We are playing Dornach next year, and hoping we can book the B&B again. He also gave me good directions for an all day trip to the west side, that was on very small roads, but it was such a good recommendation, if you have the time, ask him about it; also ask him about his dad.

Room Tip: Even if not playing golf, stay here for a wonderful evening.

We had a lovely stay here about 2 weeks ago. The guesthouse is a fine period house set in lovely gardens with a view over the coast. The lounge and breakfast rooms were beautiful, as was our bedroom. Very friendly and helpful owners.

This was our 7th stay at Golf View House, Bill and Sue were again the perfect hosts.
The bedroom was extremely comfortable and well decorated. The breakfasts are of a high standard and they set you up well for golf.
The two black labs keep you amused and Sydney is a great golf ball finder.
See you next year! SJB

Room Tip: Room 4 and 5 are superb.

This is my 2nd stay at Golf View while on business over the past 2-3 years and will definitely be back. Accommodation is ideal, the views fantastic and the ever helpful Bill & Sue make this the best B&B I've stayed at. The choice for breakfast is great and with the town centre literally 5 minutes walk away, you can stroll into town easily. Hopefully I'll will be back up in the area soon.

My wife and I stayed at the Golf View from June 14 thru 18, 2013. This was our 10th trip to Scotland for golf. This is the first time we have stayed in Tain. The Golf View is top notch, Bill and Sue are terrific hosts. Sue makes and unbelievable cook to order breakfast that is simply superb. We had a room on the front of the house with a million dollar view of the Dornoch firth and the Tain Golf course. It was an easy 10 minute walk to downtown Tain for our evening meal with plenty of choices of good food at a reasonable price.

The room was spacious, well appointed and the bathroom was huge. Everything in the house was spotless clean. This is our new favorite place to stay in the Highlands. We will be back, soon I hope. Thanks Bil and Sue for a wonderful 5 day stay.
