“Brilliant Location...Brilliant House...Brilliant Breakfast...Brilliant!!”
Reviewed 31 August 2010

The accommodation was first class and the view across the bay superb, we even had a fly past from the local RAF squadron who were practising across the Dornoch Firth, not every hotel can arrange this!!

Breakfast was excellent and the whole visit was professional from star to finish

Bill and Sue at Golf View House are truly fabulous hosts. They have a beautiful home that has been modernized and redecorated within the last 3 years. The decoration and furnishing of the room, done by Sue, was both tasteful and elegant. They are very friendly hosts that answered all our questions about the local area, saw to our every need and made our stay in Tain very enjoyable. Although I didn't have time to play, Tain Golf Course (a links style course on the Dornoch Firth) looked challenging and in good condition. This lovely B&B is well located so that day trips to the attractions in the Highlands is possible and easy. My wife and I feel very comfortable in giving this B&B our highest rating. It was our best experience in the UK.

we were warmly welcomed by Sue and Bill, found a room with excellent view over the firth, with a beautiful four-poster bed and a large, clean and tasteful toilet/shower. The hosts are always very friendly, positive and helpful, and they served a very fine breakfast to our wishes.
On a scale of 1-5 we would like to rate this house with 6 points!

Having returned from another wonderful trip to Tain, i felt compelled to write a rare review. Myself and my better half spend a large amount of time travelling around the country on business and sometimes get an odd week off for a personal holiday....and because we are well versed in the b&b/guest house/hotel market available on the U.K., we indeed see the 'highs and low's' of this sort of accommodation.

This leads me to compliment the recently new owners of Golf View House. Having used this guest house annually for many years, i must say that although previously adequate for our needs, the new owners have 'raised the game' to a far higher standard and i have to say, i find it hard to remember anywhere over the years to compare. In actual fact, it knocks the spots of most 4-star hotels we have had to stay at.

A brief, all-encompassing review this, as there has been nothing to fault in our last few visits in recent years.

Keep up the good work, and we will be back!!!!!
